Waterfox 56.0.1: 13 December [Free, open and private web browser.] - Page 665

post #6641 of 7371
Mr. Alex,

"about:config, Right click anywhere New > String
And then name the string: app.update.url.override
And the value of the string: https://www.waterfoxproject.org/update/test/win/update.xml
Then just go to About Waterfox and apply the patch smile.gif"

I tested the update for 35.0.1 and the patched worked for me.
Was using Ver. 34.0.1 and now have 35.0.1

THANK YOU (sorry, but I had to shout) for all your time and hard work!!!

Would it be possible for you to both do it again? I've released a new test patch that'll hopefully fix the issues.

I have nothing but respect for your ability to handle all that you must endure in this project. I just hope you know there are many more that don't post and lurk around that I am sure have a ton of appreciation for your efforts and Waterfox itself. Good Karma and Good energy to you sir!

No need to reply...a vote of confidence on my part and the voiceless others!

Thank you very much, I appreciate that a lot!

Ah good to know it works for you. After you updated did it restart and install the patch okay?

Thanks for the kind comments!

Failed again. I tried a couple times.

So thinking maybe another route would work, I downloaded the .mar file and followed some instructions online on how to install one, gathered the required DLLs alongside the .mar so the installer would go, and the status file says "applying" -- no success message. Next time I ran Waterfox, it still asks if I want to update to 35.0.1 *shrug*

UPDATE 2/13 8pm:
The 35.0.1 .exe on SourceForge installed without a hitch. Report coming soon as I've had a few hours of browsing to see if the memory gets filled up or not.

Yes Mr. Alex, after WF update, Waterfox restarted and is working fine.
I have not found any problems as of now.

The update config patch doesn't install.

Mr. Alex,

After updating from Ver. 34.0.1 to 35.0.1 with no problem, I am still asked to update.

The three jpeg files I attached show what I am talking about.
.01 WF Capture with “About Waterfox” window with 35.0.1 installed and Apply Update...
.02 WF Capture with WF “Software Update” window, with update failed & link not working.
.03 WF Capture with Web Site where “Software Update” link take me.

I hope this helps you.
