Waterfox 56.0.1: 13 December [Free, open and private web browser.] - Page 545

post #5441 of 7373
Thread Starter 

I'll have a Waterfox 26 Preview build ready this week. Anyone have any expertise with Photoshop/Illustrator? Mozilla have changed some of the branding files to use .bmp and .svg and I'm not too familiar with these formats.

BMP is easy, SVG is vector graphichs which you'll want something like Inkscape for... I'm no aestheticist myself, though.

As much as I respect Alex and his work on Waterfox, I have a feeling he doesn't realise the importance of Waterfox for a lot of people. There is a time when a project grows beyond the scope of "pet project" and becomes an invaluable instrument for thousands of people. I wish both Alex and the Mozilla people could understand that and support each other and this project officially, consistently and efficiently.
Could you imagine what would happen if Mozilla were to say "hey, we'll be releasing Firefox 26 in two weeks anyway, no point releasing a fix now"?
[incidentally, it's not "two weeks", it's a full month until FF26 is released, and probably another week or two for Waterfox 26]

This is Open Source. If you don't like the way Mr. Alex is doing things, you are welcome to do it better.
You can always fork it and build your own. Put your money where your mouth is...
Entitlement has no place in Open Source.
If Waterfox is important "for a lot of people", how about these people show their gratitude and actually donate money/equipment/time to the project? Anything else is just hollow whining.
Geez.

So are you looking for conversion of previous logos to these formats? or an overhaul of the Waterfox brand design into these formats? I am sure there are a few art kids in here that are up to the challenge...I can do my best to help on either. Also, thanks for your hard work on this project Mr. Alex...Waterfox has been hands down the best browser for me for quite some time now...thanks!

A BMP (bitmap) is an extremely early version of lossless image files. It dates back to the veeeeeeeeeeeery early days of Windows (you can even make them in MSPaint). I don't think they're used very often, though.

I know that SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) are commonly used by Wikis, especially Wikipedia. I don't know too much about them, though.

Hey guys, just wondering does Waterfox have automatic updates when an update is available?

Could you clarify what is needed? Do we need to convert files from one format to another? This is pretty straight forward in Illustrator; or do we need to create new graphics?

I agree hes doing this for free so people can wait till he has time to do it or learn to do it themselfs if they need it so badly.

Hi , WF is very fast and i like it a lot . but i was wondering if there was a way to have it in french
post #5450 of 7373
Hi there Mr. Alex! First off I'd like to thank you for all your hard work on Waterfox and let you know how much I appreciate it. I keep getting stuck having to use Windows 7 (bleah) so having a 64-bit Firefox-based browser is a must.

I have noticed an oddity when using Waterfox related to the Google Doodle. While I can view the Google Doodle and interact with it properly both in Firefox 24.0 32-bit and in IE 10.0.11 32-bit, the Doodle remains static in Waterfox 24. (I'm referring to the current Dr. Who Google Doodle over at www.google.com right now but this was also the case for the 15th birthday doodle at http://www.google.com/doodles/googles-15th-birthday).

My first guess was this was plugin-related. The 32-bit Firefox browser I used to compare with has Silvelight as well as Quicktime plugins installed. But I don't have Silvelight installed on my Win7 PC and yet the Doodle works in IE. I don't have Quicktime installed but it doesn't seem likely Goodle would be requiring an Apple-authored product for their doodles.

Any ideas on what the issue is? I can see the Doodle in IE but I'd really like to be able to do it in Waterfox, plus I'm wondering what other websites may not be fully working in Waterfox if there's a missing plugin, bug or some hidden setting I need to adjust.

Thanks again for all your hard work!
