Is the link to your logged in One Drive profile?

i cannot open your link, but I can open the One Drive main page from Waterfox 34.0.1

You might need to log out of One Drive in Firefox before you can log in with Waterfox.

It states that another copy of Firefox is currently running, where FireFox 32-Bit is no longer installed in the operating system.

I think this is a missed reference in the installer configuration. The installer can fail if either Firefox or Waterfox is running.

Another thing I have seen is that the Waterfox process can take just a few seconds too long to close and is still running when the update installer needs it to be closed. Then, when you open task manager, you find no running program or process.

In either case, the work-around is to download and install the updated version from the Waterfox Project page.

Hey, I don't know if you should spend time on that, I think that function comes from the "Context search" add-on, not firefox itself. I don't if firefox has it too, so check for that before looking into it.
Sorry about that, I got confused.

Already tried, but I have my system set to clear those out every restart, and I restart after video driver crashes to prevent performance loss. No Windows logs left.

Is it better to turn off hardware acceleration to fix all Flash problems in Waterfox/Firefox? I've been having these problems on all my computers with many tabs in them. When I open about 10 or more Flash-heavy websites, the browser just crawls! And the RAM used by waterfox.exe reaches more than 2GB. This is just unacceptable and I've been waiting for many years now for this to be fixed but I'm only being disappointed.

Having to stop using Waterfox for now because of these problems:

Windows 8 (not 8.1); 2.4Gh processor, 4GB ram
.
1. Browser takes up to 3 minutes to load, even with no previously opened tabs. Sometimes it opens empty and I have to close it through Task Manager and reopen.
2. Extremely slow and choppy, even without too many tabs open. Yes, hardware acceleration is off.
3. Regularly freezes for long periods of time, during which I lose all computer control and have to manually shut down and reboot.
4. Javascript error problems on Amazon Mechanical Turk, where I make most of my money, and it's only a problem in WF, not FF portable (FF desktop doesn't seem to like my computer for some reason, so I run portable on the desktop) or Chrome. I've installed both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Java, so it's not compatibility that I can see.

FF portable (32 bit) is 10x as fast as WF right now. I really need the speed, so I'll keep updating and trying to see if an update fixes this problem.

Yes there are quite a few PDF readers with 64-Bit extensions. I've used PDF X-Change before pdf.js was available and it does the job decently.

Yes I've found the same bug, I'm looking into it. Might be a bit late!

Unfortunately, it doesn't give a crash report... It crashed the video driver, and Waterfox at the same time so no report is made. If it makes a log file, then could you point me to where it's stored?

 

Any chance you could have it so crash logs don't clear on restart? Would make finding out the issue a bit easier!

Do you already see them in Waterfox? If so I'll have to backtrack quite a few bugs that Mozilla have implemented.

It depends on what provides a better experience. If it's HW off, then it won't make a difference to your experience with HW on. All it does is offload tasks from your CPU to your GPU (and any modern CPU will handle everything just fine). Also it looks like plugins are being phased out. Chrome has completely shut off NPAPI plugins now and they're only leaving the bare essentials till they're comfortable enough that it's no longer needed. Mozilla are also working on shumway, a way to natively render flash with HTML5 (like PDF.js for example) to get rid of the need of plugins.

 

Plugins were always a big security and performance issue so they'll be going the way of the dodo which is why not much work or focus is being put into fixing their issue anymore.

As for RAM usage, that comes with the territory on such a big 64-Bit program. (Memory pointers are now twice as big for example).

fix now crash

 

Thanks I've now merged the fix, will issue a patch. Apologies I haven't had time to look through all the changes between 33.x -> 34 -> 35 to see what broke/then got fixed. I've got exams first two weeks of January so I've been busy revising which has noticeably reduced the time I spend developing Waterfox! I'm putting a team together for Waterfox, so hopefully soon we'll see some real development prowess come into action!

Hmm. Does FF portable have its own profile or does it use the system profile? It could possibly be a profile issue (which would explain FF desktop not working well either). Have you tried creating a blank profile to see if that fixes anything?
