I'm having a problem with "Waterfox is not set as your default browser" box popping up every time I start waterfox. Yes, of course I have it set to check every time and I click yes. I've tried starting it in admin mode, holding cntrl+shift and starting it, I also tried going to control panel, default programs, but Waterfox was not listed there.
It really seems like changing the name of the exe to waterfox.exe was not a particularly great idea, as this is the 1st time I've had ANY issues with waterfox. I also can't open a new tab from the taskbar, open new tab, open new window and enter private browsing are all blank white icons, when you click on them, an error box says C:\Program Files\Waterfox\firefox.exe Unspecified error.
Some of my add-ons acted screwy, not just adblock, but reddit enhancement suite needed to be disabled, enabled too... I will uninstall waterfox, clean my registry and try a reinstall, will update if I have any luck.
I still love the browser Alex and don't really care about these tiny issues, however the jackass on here saying stuff like "This isn't rocket science, maybe you should stick with your android phone" reflects badly on this project and goes to show why more and more people are switching platforms. The last thing we need are neckbearded geeks with an inferiority complex and the social skills of a spoiled 5 year old telling people to stick with their phones just because they don't go hacking the registry every time a problem shows up. I'd rather have people asking for help instead of poking around their systems, potentially messing up things they don't understand and then blaming it on waterfox when their machine won't restart or something. Seriously people, there's no need for that kind of attitude, either help people politely or let someone else do the trouble shooting if it's going to put you out so much that you randomly insult people who politely ask for help. Even if it IS a simple fix, it's still a good idea for someone to post their issues here so the next update can include a fix, you know? I mean, even though I know how to edit my registry, or change or move something, or whatever the problem was, that doesn't mean I want to do that every time I install the program, right?
EDIT: Well, I just had the crap scared out of me, I uninstalled waterfox from control panel>add remove programs, and it never popped up asking me if I wanted to keep my profile, you know? Now, here's a stupid question, I have not installed "firefox" since version 5. Is one expected to have Firefox 14 before they install Waterfox 14? Should one uninstall firefox before installing Waterfox 14?
EDIT 2: I uninstalled Waterfox, ran CCleaner, had to click analyse and clean twice, (the second analysis I saw something about waterfox listed) rebooted, reinstalled waterfox, made it default, and it stayed that way. So that's nice. However I still have the issue where right clicking my waterfox program on the taskbar shows open new tab etc with a white "No default application" icon listed with the same error.
I hardly use those options so I really don't care and plan to keep using waterfox for now, boy it sure feels snappy Alex, thanks so much for all your hard work on this. Perhaps you could recruit some beta testers for the next major release, like you said you only have 3 machines to test it on, let us be your slaves! I know I wouldn't mind at all.
