That will be my next task!

Just so everyone is aware, the built-in updater (Help-About Waterfox) worked for me going from v28 to v30.

WF30 is not stable

HORSE POOP !!!

Mine crashes , has been crashing, and will continue to crash until someone does something about it.

Will it probably work on a new install of windows and new install of wf. Maybe, but what is the ratio of new installs to people who have a pre-existing windows profile ?
Has a clean install been performed and old firefox & wf profile and files/directories been deleted, sure.
All the while, Nightly is working spectacular with 0 crashes. I am not too sure it is coded better or faster then wf though. mad.gif

I remember reading a post a while back about AdBlock Plus and how it can cause the behaviour that mwarren2 has described.

I can't find a link for it right now though.

1. it's stable on my win7 system that was upgraded to win7 x64 from winxp x86 which was upgraded from win2000, the earliest files i have are from 2009. this incarnation of hardware was from 2012 when i took the ssd out of my pentium D machine and put it in my new i-7 machine (& did an in-place repair install). it's had hundreds of programs added and removed and various incarnations of firefox since it was called phoenix. i have used the same profile for firefox nightlies (x64) and waterfox. have had some crashes in nightlies forcing me to revert to the day before, but so far waterfox 30 has proven stable. it shares the same default profile with the nightlies too. i gave up on adblock when it started to show memory leaks and sluggish behavior, and showed 'selected' ads. i'm using adguard now.

2. yet again i will say that waterfox is not programmed by mr. alex, it is essentially straight firefox code compiled and optimized by mr. alex but the optimizations are in the compiling not the firefox code. so if you have any desire to curse, curse at mozilla, not here at mr. alex. references to horse excreta are unnecessary and annoying.

3. look to your add-ons. most memory leaks start there. disable them then re-enable them until you find the culprit. when you find it, disable it, or replace it with something else of the same function, until they come out with a new version.

4. about:memory from the address window will also give you more info.

Sir, if that's what you think, why don't you join the development team and help out MrAlex with it. And while you are at it, you could also help him with the look and everything. If you can't, I'd suggest you to provide a bit of critique and guide him, instead of just blatantly talking trash.

Thanks!

I would love to if I had the time and had he not already had it looking just fine I'm Waterfox 28. I know there are the addons for that, but it doesn't look the exact same as what I like mine.
