If you're not comfortable using a preview version of WF 24, use Pale Moon 64bit as an alternative in the meantime.

That post was a waste of time. Sounds like someone has some personal agenda, so stop wasting Mr Alex's time with useless drivel. Self promotion? Sounds like Solar system is bent on self promotion.

Hello, I've started using Waterfox a couple of days ago, ... I see a bunch of orphaned files, directories, at least one windows google service left on my machine; ...

Can you tell me what happened to the reply to this users question? I can't find it. I have 18.0.1 running on a Win7 Pro 64bit and after just one use I have 100's a mb of directories and file under my username with firefox and hj2idflz.default in the names. Most of the folders are only 1 to 2 characters.

My apology for posting this here if it is not the right place. I assume you'll move or delete it, but I am desperate and can't find anywhere else for an answer...Sorry and Thanks

I'll look into it. So after using WF do you get lots of files within your user profile? And this is running everything with default settings?

Answer:

"So after using WF do you get lots of files within your user profile?"
YES, 100s most with nothing or very little in them.

"And this is running everything with default settings?"
YES didn't set any preferences.

Also, benchmark tests to prove these performance increases you claim would be nice. Otherwise this is just self-promotion with no basis in proven facts.

And to end with a minor bug: In the Help>About Waterfox the waterfoxproject.org link actually links to mozilla.org

 

When Waterfox first started, there weren't any other 64-Bit versions of Firefox widely available, so I thought I'd do it as a little side project. Then once it gained some traction and other Firefox projects started to make 64-Bit builds, such as PaleMoon, I decided recompilation wasn't enough so I started to compile Firefox with ICC, which provides some huge performance improvements. I've helped create some bug reports in Firefox and mostly ICC.

 

And there are benchmarks on the website and I even link to an external review...

Preview is working well for me Alex, no problems and even runs quite fast on multiple Win7 and 2 Win8 systems. Also loaded it on a friends system in place of a another 64 bit FF variant that I shall not name that was hanging on flash often at start up and it made his problem disappear.

Correct.

Adobe no longer (it used too) offers a 64bit installer. Only a 32bit installer, which is to say an installer that runs in 32bit mode to install both 64bit and 32bit versions of flash.

This is why the only download offered from Adobe has "32" in its name. It is referring to the fact that the installer is a 32bit program.
Very confusing, I know.1

I have personally confirmed that Adobe installs 2 files. One for 64bit and one for 32bit.
It will use either one depending on the bit flag that is returned in the browser.

Have done some more snooping around regarding the files created on my system drive by WF. I found 620 files created in 603 directories under the directory AppData/.../hj2idtlz.default with a total size of 50.6mb or 52.0 mb on disk. I used the disk clean utility that comes with Win7 and got back a significant amount f space I thought were contained in these files, but maybe not. Will continue to monitor usage and file counts to see if they grow or simply maintain (which I assume would mean they are being reused). Please keep me informed if you determine any thing is causing files and folder to be orphaned which would eventually consume my SSD. Thanks

ZOMG!!!! I got 420 MB in 11,839 Files, 4,119 Folders -


it's called a browser cache, nothing to be concerned about - go to Options->Advanced->Network to see what the maximum size of your cache will be

If you are with a SSD, use it: about:config > browser.cache.disk.enable to false
