Waterfox 56.0: 30 November [Free, open and private web browser.] - Page 566

post #5651 of 7367
I think I found a small bug. I was using Firefox 27.0.1 and Polish interface. Then I moved to Waterfox 27.0.2 and everything was the way it was... but GUI language was set to English.

I changed it by editing "general.useragent.locale" in about:config and I have Polish interface now but shouldn't Waterfox recognize it by itself? I mean, I was using Polish language version of Firefox on this very profile...

I have a real issue.

Every time I try to open Firefox, Waterfox opens. This is beyond annoying.

Actually, I *think* you might be using the generic shortcut in the taskbar, which points to the default browser. If you create a new shortcut pointing to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", or simply open a Windows Explorer window and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\ (or D: or the whatever other drive letter your Windows installation resides in) and double-click the "firefox.exe" executable, Firefox will run. Then, assuming you're using Windows 7 or, God forbid, 8 or Vista, you can simply right-click the taskbar icon and select "Pin this program to taskbar".
I've had the same "problem" simply because the icon of the taskbar shortcut pointing to the default browser is changed by Firefox, but then, when Waterfox gets installed and takes over as default browser, it doesn't change the icon, so you look at the Firefox icon and think the shortcut should run Firefox, when in fact, it'll run the whatever browser is set as default.
Hope that helps.

Nope. I am using the Desktop Shorcut.

Well, check the shortcut's target. There is no way that a shortcut pointing to one executable will actually run another!
For the record, it is still possible to have "a" desktop shortcut "pointing" to the default browser instead of an actual executable file.

Target is:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

Never mind. It isn't happening anymore. But it was earlier.

If Waterfox is open in the background, a click on the Firefox shortcut will also open another instance of Waterfox.

I am well aware of this. It happened after I Ctrl+alt+del ended Waterfox, to be sure it wasn't going.
