Seems one of the fixes is crashes in Facebook: http://www.ghacks.net/2013/02/05/firefox-18-0-2-will-resolve-crashes-when-on-facebook/ but I suspect it's not just with them, only that they're quite a high-profile initiator of the issue.

The release notes for Firefox 18.0.2 are out...

18.0.2: Fix JavaScript related stability issues

It might be a good idea to update Waterfox to 18.0.2 then?

I'd say definitely, maybe the crash I experienced was also due to this Mozilla bug and Waterfox has nothing to do with it! So I'll use Waterfox again if there's any hope, for the time being Cyberfox (https://8pecxstudios.com/?page_id=52) is already at 18.0.2 so that'll have to do until Waterfox is updated.

My goodness I'm glad I'm not the only one experiencing this exact problem. Most of the time I can ignore it, but it gets very irritating when I'm typing up a post and the freeze causes it to completely forget whatever I typed when it started. If all the text suddenly appeared afterwards, fine...but I type pretty quickly so whole sentences can get lost in that lag! Never happened before 18.0.1. Already completely uninstalled Java, though I haven't tried disabling Flash just yet. Did notice that it's sitting there sucking up 32% of my CPU on average. I do have 50 tabs open, sure... but hey, the last Waterfox I had installed didn't do this. biggrin.gif

Hoping for a fix when 19 rolls around!

EDIT: Just tested disabling Flash completely and no, it still experiences the same lag spikes and multi-second freezes. It does use less average CPU but that could just as easily because it's freshly restarted. Or it could be Flash being disabled. Either or. Point being, even with much less CPU usage and Flash completely disabled the browser itself still lags and locks up every so often for no discernable reason whereas previous versions did not.

It's not just you, I hit CPU spikes and system freezing on v18. I gave it a while to be sure, then regressed it back to 16.0.1 for now, which is fine. I'm guessing it could be the new compiler Alex has been forced to use (same one which caused the issues before), or else the firefox code-base itself. Hard to tell, but Alex does a pretty good job and I appreciate it a lot, so this is purely for information, that it's not just a couple of people hitting this.

With luck the 18.0.2 javascript changes fix it smile.gif We'll see smile.gif

Is 18.0.2 Waterfox in the works? Hopefully out soon as people are saying the FF version fixed a lot of the speed issues etc..

Please do not harass MrAlex for updates. Be patient, the last Waterfox version took about two month to be completed. A new version will be released when it's done.

But personally I hope now that the compiler bugs are fixed it won't take long, many people here seem to have switched back to Waterfox 16 or use Cyberfox 18.0.2 in the meantime because of Waterfox crashes - if the new Waterfox arrives with the js fix will be received with a lot of enthusiasm!

Indeed - but worth emphasising in all this that when people say "waterfox crashes", it doesn't mean in any way it's Alex's or Waterfox's "fault". he compiles the code base supplied by Mozilla, using compilers supplied by Intel - and from what I can see pretty much keeps it clean codewise, so if those 2 have problems, Waterfox will, and if they're good Waterfox will be too. That's exactly what I expect to happen, and as we all know, the compilers are new and have had bugs, Mozilla has de-prioritised bugs that only appear on x64 builds (new since v16.0.1), and the Firefox 18.0.1 codebase had some issues itself - hopefully the materials he's working with are fixed or soon will be smile.gif Then we'll all upgrade. I imagine he's also keen to test carefully this time, to try and determine if there are any other bugs creeping into Waterfox from Intel or Mozilla.

Bottom line:

He's doing a good job and he'll take what time he needs. If he didn't, it won't be the Waterfox we want. But he can't put right by himself what Intel and Mozilla make glitchy smile.gif
