Waterfox 56.0: 30 November [Free, open and private web browser.] - Page 495

post #4941 of 7367
NomakeWan and kevindd992002, if you've had the cfox installed on your system at anytime look for 'things' left on your computer, like an open UDP port that shouldn't be.I never had it on any of my machines but the 2 people who did that I've actually been on their systems had the stutters and even the spikes when running WF after having that other browser on their systems. Like I've said I've never gotten any of it and cannot duplicate it on mine but am not going to install that to try it ever. Hope you guys find what to clean out and get yourself back to operating without any problems smile.gif

hmm kevin mentioned that internet download manager was causing him problems before. whether if that is still the issue or not, the only other browser i've had related to waterfox would be pm... but that was like around firefox 10 (before pm went "independent browser") not that i have it installed anymore but i do get these microstutters from time to time, however mine only happen when IDM is poppping up with a download option (click on download, and waiting for the box to pop up) mainly that's when this happens. other then that, it doesn't happen too often. I have nightly installed too but haven't been using it as frequent and don't even have regular firefox installed lol.

edit: actually i lied, i have chrome and opera installed as well since 64bit browsers aren't very compatible with sites like tera.enmasse.com that use device signatures to log in (always says password is wrong even though it's right.) not sure if this would be affecting anything?

side note: firefox 19.0.2 is out
security update apparently

I was on YouTube and it felt like I had buffering issues and playback issues (seeking after video has buffered). I tried (more or less in this order): clearing browser's cache including cookies, Flash's cache, and increasing browser's cache size (which I then reverted back to default). The problem more or less resolved itself somewhere along those lines. There were instructions about problematic Flash installation that could be solved if you did a clean install I think if you hadn't already attempted it.

I already did reinstalling Flash "cleanly" and it didn't help a bit. My cache is set to 50MB only though. Will increasing it really help? I thought it's better to have minimal cache? My cache in IE is also set to 50MB and Flash videos never stuttered.

Hmmm, time to uninstall cfox then. Thanks! I really hope I can make FF and WF work flawlessly.

EDIT: I forgot to mentioned that I've experienced micro stuttering even BEFORE I installed cfox on my system.

My IDM plugin is already disabled since last month when I discovered it affected Flash videos. It did minimize the stutter but not significantly frown.gif Many frames are still dropped.

I can not find the reader plugin!
See http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1158136

As mentioned earlier, the Adobe Reader plugin is 32-bit, so it will only work on 32-bit browsers.

I have never had any other browser on my machine. I didn't even know about 'that other browser' until I came to this thread after updating to Waterfox 18.0.1 and running into the microstutter issue. So no, it's not a conflict between competing browsers if that's what you're assuming. It's also funny that you suggest UDP ports have something to do with microstuttering... heh. Not sure how that would do anything, but perhaps if you enlighten me I'd be less willing to chuckle? wink.gif

I have not tried it, no. Switching to another FF didn't really occur to me because...well...the whole point was I didn't want to mess with other FFs. If it's absolutely required, link me to the browser I'm supposed to try out and how?

And I never associated the UDP port being opened with microstutterng,where you got from makes me chuckle wink.gif
Not the UDP port being opened,noted that for unusual beahviour,besides other things running but since you've never had that installed that point is moot. Have you tried turning off the advanced extention switching as shown here; "it's the -Qax switch that may cause the bug (a simple fix available here )." or the other switches? Seems like certain system components must be reacting to it. Since I'm running WF on both of my networks and not seeing it on any of the various systems I can't duplicate your problems.

Fair enough, I was going based on context and grammatical structure and not on the technical aspect. rolleyes.gif

Are any of those switches on by default? I'm using a default installation of Waterfox. Please instruct me as to how to turn these off if they are on by default.

Also, how many tabs do you keep open? On a 'regular' day I'll have over 50 open. Right this second I have 45 open, though. I seem to see a pattern to people saying that having many tabs open is what triggers the condition we're experiencing. 'Just don't keep so many tabs open' is not a solution when WF16 did not have the same problem, however, so I'm not willing to try that as a fix. tongue.gif

Hmmm, so with FF you aren't experiencing stuttering?
