Waterfox 56.0.1: 13 December [Free, open and private web browser.] - Page 615

post #6141 of 7372
I have somewhat the same issue.

1. Video loads and plays, after 10-15 sec hte vidoe freezes and audio continues.
2. Buffers 5-10% and will not continue.
3. Buffers 5-10%, gets stuck. After 1-2 minutes, buffers entire video, but cannot press play, reload the video.

Back down to 32.0 will solve this? Where can I download it?

And yes, it is Waterfox, not flashplayer and so on.
On 3 seperate computers.

EDIT:
Found and installed 32.0, all issues insta-solved.

Not to mention that in Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Service Pack 1, WaterFox Upgrade 32.03 can't be installed through the Installed Waterfox Version 32.0

"Software Update Failed

The update could not be installed. Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on
your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again.

OK "

Why doesn't the Error message say Waterfox, instead of Firefox, where Firefox had been uninstalled, a while ago.

Something is wrong in the complilation of Waterfox 32.03.

That Software Update Failed in Normal Windows 7 Mode.

The Update on same computer worked without problems in Safe Mode for Windows 7.
And the Update held booting back into Normal Windows 7 Mode.

NOTE: Anybody contemplating a switch to Pale Moon should know that the GUID is now unique to that browser and does not "piggyback" on the Firefox GUID anymore. If you want to keep all your addons, install version 24 of PM, put in your addons, THEN roll up to the latest version.

THIS IS NOT A RECOMMENDATION FOR MRALEX. Pale Moon is being "forked" because Moonchild increasingly wants to be able to do development on a code base that doesn't involve compensating for Australis. Waterfox uses Australis, so there is no reason to adopt a new GUID for WF.

However it is clear that the Profile-Guided Optimization is causing issues, so I would suggest other forms of optimization.

Also, one thing I would like to suggest is if some veteran WF users who are conversant in the use of virtual machines become a "core group" of beta testers who can rapidly test use cases before releasing WF. What is happening now is MrAlex releases WF and almost invariably there are bugs and problems that crop up because of lack of pretesting. A lot of this could probably be avoided if there were some "shakedown cruises" on clean Windows Vista, 7 and 8 installations to isolate and correct issues.

(and frankly, to me it doesn't look very professional when the first "release" is always some dropbox URL, especially as WF was premiered at a major event a couple of years ago and has even been reviewed on Youtube. This would go a long way to "professionalizing" the browser and positioning it as a credible 64-bit Firefox variant that has the advantage of preserving the FF GUID and so guaranteeing 100% add-on compatibility with FF.)

New palemoon has a lot of issues with it not worth it anymore I just gave into Australis with classic restore add-on.

Adblock plus or most addons dev's wont support them now and there being force to make there own addons or make them compatible them self's on the forums.

Benchmarks are not everything just because chrome has highest does not mean much. For some reason firefox runs faster on my pc it all depends.

Same with anything really all android phones have high end specs but always free up and lock up much more than iphone and have higher benchmarks really you cant go off them alone.

Sorry, but can't find an answer to this anywhere. Firefox won't help me because they say it is YOUR problem, even though it's a KNOWN FF problem.

I have a problem using WF (or FF) with Facebook. The site is slow and jerky and sometimes videos in posts won't load. I have found that the only browser I have no problem on FB with is Opera, and I'm tired of having to use a separate browser for one site. Not crazy about FB anyway, but have to be there for a group I'm involved with.

I know there is a fix for this, but I can't find it anywhere. I'm not a techie, so please use layman's language as much as possible. Thank you.

Amie

1) Check which Flash you are using by visiting Flash Player help on Adobe.
Also, make sure you are using 64 bit flash. Firefox is a 32 bit program, thus Waterfox's flash request won't work on it (as Waterfox is a 64 bit program and won't work with 32 bit flash). To definitely make sure you are using 64 bit flash, download Flash Player from Waterfox

2) Check the version of Java that you have. As with Flash, this will have to be the latest version and 64 bit. To check Java, visit the Java Update Checker website and click on the red button. This will check Java on your PC and let you know if you have the latest one.

The reason why I say check these 2 things first is Facebook is a Flash and Java heavy website, so if you don't have the latest 64 bit versions, it may cause issues when visiting the site. If you've checked them and they still do not work, come back and we'll try and help

Hope this helps,

Some people have been reporting that clearing the web cache and the facebook cookies has helped them in reducing the jerkiness and things not appearing.
