Haven't tried the new test versions yet. But with 43.0.4 and following the advice in this article regarding Flash, the earlier crash problems are now GONE. Go figure biggrin.gifwink.gifthumb.gif

@MrAlex

Can you at some point modify the installer to include a "enable/disable privacy-related options"?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

Note that there are several things executed on first install which store physically identifiable information, such as the geolocation check on first run for the default search engine (which is usually Google).

Ideally there should be one checkbox that allows the user to disable all first-run Mozilla options - including being able to omit the H.264 codec download if the user doesn't want it.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1074968

Also it seems like what you will need is "defaultPref" not "pref" or "lockpref" in order to let the options be user-changeable later.

ADDED:

Also, can you harden Waterfox by changing some of the security-related options? One of the biggest issues is speculative prefetching of links.

That's a good idea! I'll see what I can change that hopefully doesn't affect the user experience at all.

Suggestion. Ability to automatically clear history older than X days, and add a "clear history older than X days" in the clear all history window.

The current clear history option doesn't make any sense to me. You can only clear history that is up to 1 day old. Depending on the time of day, it's only up to 4 hours old. If it's older, you have to clear all history to get rid of it. This doesn't make any sense to me.

I know you can press ctrl+H to see your recent history and manually delete older stuff. Doing it this way you have to manually delete each month's group. There's no way to select multiple groups and delete them all in one click.

Hi MrAlex,

I've been monitoring your thread over at reddit to see when v45 will be released.
Info from reddit:
Code:
Waterfox 45 is on its way (normal ICL builds)

I just today got Firefox v45.0.2 update.
Any information on when v45 will be released? And also, will it be based on v45.0.2?

Love your work and prefer Waterfox over Firefox any day..smile.gif

Sorry for the delay guys. Intel's C++ compiler has just become impossible to work with, especially considering the massive codebase shifts Mozilla are making, so for the time being it's back to VC build. I'll hopefully be able to move over to GCC or Clang for the next release :-) (or even back to ICL if they fix their compiler bugs)

---

Hi all,

This build will be similar to the final release tomorrow (it's based on the last 46 beta branch, so final release will be based on the release branch). Please test it out and let me know if anything is missing! :-)

Features

  • Disabled EME (doesn't work on 3rd party builds anyway)
  • Removed Pocket completely
  • Removed all telemetry/data collection being sent back to Mozilla
  • Disabled the 64-Bit NPAPI white-list so that the user can decide what plugins they can run (doesn't make sense for Mozilla to do this as most of their user base probably aren't technically proficient), but it's something Waterfox users are capable of handling.
  • I've also allowed unsigned extensions to run as well as there are still some old extensions people like to use (it's disabled by Mozilla for the same reason as above)
  • Windows XP 64-Bit support
  • Updated ICU to 57.1 (current Mozilla base is on 56.1)
  • Switched to Visual C++ temporarily, until ICL bugs have been fixed or have a stable build with GCC or Clang
