Waterfox 56.0: 30 November [Free, open and private web browser.] - Page 677

post #6761 of 7367
I don' t know that it is any secret that I use WF exclusively as my browser of choice. I am also a HUGE fan of tweaktown.com and have NEVER had issue one with that site. I do hope whoever does have an issue with that site gets it resolved quickly. My general daily surfing schedule starts with Tweaktown, DD-WRT, Waterfox, MajorGeeks, TheWindowsClub, and then free for all...that usually ends at Tweaktown to see what was updated. My two cents!

36.0.1: Yes, the WebGL leak appears to be fixed, there was no bloating.

Noticed the usage did NOT drop when I closed the tab as it usually does, but minimising Waterfox and picking back up purged the space (since I have that toggle in about:prefs to do that set).

Thank you, MrAlex!

Hi Mr. Alex,

Still not working! What I did?

Everything was uninstalled, especially FireFox.

Went to that article or guide, you referenced and followed its instructions.

Found the default profile. Using File Explorer, I deleted the entire profile from the main Mozilla Folder. Ran Disk Cleanup. Reboot and went back to that article to see if it would find another profile. Nothing Found.

Reinstalled Waterfox 34.0.1 version and it found an Update to Apply and got the same error message, that Firefox was running, where no other Firefox version is installed..

Went back to that article and this time iit found the Default Profile. I did a PrtScrn Snapshot of it, in List view, because I could not get all files in Detail View. All files have a Date of 03-09-2015.

Next going to reset Internet Explorer 's Internet Options and see if that has any effect.

Where does Waterfox store the Update after downloading it?

Hi Mr. Alex,

I removed all Mozilla Folders in ProgramData, Local and Roaming in my User ID under AppData.

Then I ran Disk Cleanup. I used Internet Options to reset Internet Explorer's Internet Options. Restarted the Computer and ran Check Now, as a Precaution.

Installed WaterFox 34.0.1 version, cause I wanted to test updating.

This time, there wasn't any Updates to be applied but found new version. I was able to Download New Version and it states "Apply Update". Restarted Waterfox.

Got the error message again. Updater could not continue because another version of Firefox was running in the background.

Now going to try a new User ID and see what happens.

Hi Mr. Alex,

Creating a New User ID and installing from that Account, did not work. Had the same problem.

Showing Firefox running, when no version of FireFox is installed, save for Waterfox.

I'm not sure either but I'll give it a try. When you tried reproducing my problem, do you have other tabs opened? I have around 50 tabs opened (but not loaded) that are not Tweaktown-related and that's the time I try to reproduce the issue which can be reproduced every single time frown.gif

 

Yes, tried with multiple tabs as well :(

I wonder if it might be a driver issue?

Excellent! Glad to hear :) Update is all ready then.

I feel like there's a profile update that hasn't been deleted that might keep prompting you for an update (I'll look for the directory so you can delete the file). If you use the Portable version, I'm assuming the issue doesn't occur anymore?

Did you copy the profile to each of these setups? Does each of your setups have the same extensions and other plugins? What plugins are installed (Java, Flash, etc...)? More information is always best when troubleshooting. I do hope Alex or we collectively can help out.

Options-General is empty you can't change any setting,using Waterfox 36.0.1

The problem is Ghostery.

Thanks for the help.

No, they all have different profiles. They all have java, flash, and silverlight installed as plugins. One of my setups have extensions like couchpotato, idm, and trend micro bep extension.

@MrAlex

By the way, there is a software update failure again even though I'm already at 36.0.
