Waterfox 56.0.1: 13 December [Free, open and private web browser.] - Page 630

post #6291 of 7373
Will there be a water fox 33.1?

Might be better to skip it and update to 34 as fast as possible since 34 is coming out Nov 24 any way.
post #6292 of 7373
Since the update I've experienced some strange behaviour when switching between tabs - I can't make a switch or I get two or more tabs displayed at the same time, bleeding into one another. I'm not sure if I can explain it so here's a printscreen:



I don't open +500 tabs like some people here, twenty is the tops. But this happens even with very few ones. Has anyone else experienced this?

probably because the underlying html code is the same as in firefox.

PS I miss the new darker blue icon - any chance of bringing this back?

 

This seems to be in line with the issue Mozilla have been addressing in their numerous 33.x.x patches! Look out for 34.0 (hopefully) next week!

The question is, is there any chances that somebody fixes this annoying bug?

 

64-Bit mozalloc does have some issues. Unfortunately Intel C++ compiler and jemalloc have issues but I'm working on resolving them!

Yes and it should perform faster but I'm experiencing the other way around.

MrAlex, this is the exact same thing that's happening to me.

 

Don't worry, I'm working my hardest to get this working!

Ever since updating waterfox to 33.0.2 i have been unable to get a connection to any page. immediately on opening up, it says "firefox is unable to establish a connection to the server. And i know there's nothing wrong with my internet or computer because just before updating i was using it and it was fine. At the least its a thorn in my spine, and i'd really appreciate some feedback and maybe a manual download of the previous version? I really dont care about new updates, the version before this one worked impeccably and i've had zero issues up til' now. Waterfox is the only browser that runs without lag for me (i dont even count to 2 until waterfox comes up, chrome takes 12 seconds, and internet explorer well over 18 seconds). Sure, the seconds dont matter, but when your wasting an afternoon on the computer i'm sure everyone would expect an immediate reaction from near every command.

 

Sure you can get older versions from: http://waterfox.codeplex.com/releases/view/134906 or http://sourceforge.net/projects/waterfoxproj/files/?source=navbar

I have it fully working in WF33.02. Tho I run agains private old version sync server. Not FF default.

with existing profile
created a new profile in case the profile was the issue - same issue

im using the most recent ff sync version
i can open the profile using firefox and sync works

 

Hmm that shouldn't be happening at all. Nothing this article can help with? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-sync-troubleshooting-and-tips

Mozilla are releasing WAY too many updates for me to keep up-to-date with! At the moment I'm going to focus on 34.0 which hopefully will fix all these issues!

I've been trying to get this to work for a while but I might have figured out what's wrong. So hopefully for v34.0 we're looking at gamepad and jemalloc support smile.gif

Thank you Mr. Alex !
Look forward to your team hopefully solving the gamepad problem.
You say this may take place in your v34.0 update.
Any idea when (approx.) this may happen ?
Is there a way for you and your team to inform me when this is complete ?
Thanks.

 

Hopefully everything will be resolved for 34.0. If things go well and I don't run into any compilation issues, that should be around the week of the 24th. You can keep an eye on the news page: https://waterfoxproject.org/development.php

Note: Firefox 29 ships with the Gamepad API enabled by default, as do Nightly and Aurora builds. Starting with Firefox 24, the Gamepad API was available behind a preference. You can enable it in those versions by loading about:config and setting the dom.gamepad.enabled preference to true.

edut: my tech friend say may not work x64 controller may not support

 

I've had to disable it for the last few releases, but should be fixed soon hopefully!

Handles heaps of HD pictures - whereas the 32bit firefox cant handle it and displays a black frame.

 

Great to hear!

Some things are different due to the build environment, but I'm working on getting the missing things in :).

It's one of the big bugs Mozilla has with the 33.x.x release! There are too many bugs for me to keep up with this release, so going straight to 34.0.

I'm going to sound like a broken record, but wait until 34.0. Too many 33.x.x releases for me to keep up to date with unfortunately!

No idea but it's driving me nuts. Hard to keep up. Let's hope 34.0 isn't so...temperamental.

I would like to know more about Waterfox. Where is it developed?
post #6300 of 7373
  • What happened?
    got an error when updating waterfox ( auto update)
    updated twice and happened both times

  • Are you able to reproduce this problem consistently?
    havent tried to update again after the 2nd update

  • What steps did you take to reproduce this problem?

    ran update aagain
  • What action did you expect to occur when this bug appeared?
    for it to update

  • Any additional information that will help us diagnose the issue:
    this is the first time waterfox has notified me an update is available, usually i have to update manually

  • Browser, active browser addons, and operating system:
    waterfox, win 7 64bit waterfox is my default browser

  • URL where the issue occurs:

    dont know, window popped up and i just clicked yes to update and it happened , it seemed to update and shows the correct ver number but thought it wise for you to see the error.

    i am just a user so thought best to leave it to the experts, i really don't know if its significant or not.. sorry. if i am wasting your time, but love waterfox and thought it better to say something
