Most likely, Windows did not register Waterfox as a 64 bit application when the update installed.

You can usually fix this by downloading and running the full installer rather than the update.

I think once I had to uninstall the old version of Waterfox manually to get the new version to register properly as a 64 bit application.

Still didn't work. I tried extracting and copy-pasting into my Waterfox folder and installing from a downloaded full file from the site. I also uninstalled then reinstalled Waterfox.

Trying to use 37.0.1 from a setup file I still have (since I can't find this version on the Older Versions link on the official page), I can install only by manually copying the files into my Waterfox folder, as Alex has told me that the installer is incompatible with Vista. This method works to install, however, with any update after 35.xxxr the end result is an unusable program. Such as v38 saying it "Isn't a valid Win32 application" or v36 / 37 (all versions) returning the following graphical bug:

Hello, I understand your issue better now.

This is the key: "Alex has told me that the installer is incompatible with Vista."!

By just extracting and copying files over, they are not getting registered properly by Windows.

I just spent some time searching through my registry and there are a lot of entries for Waterfox. This includes a number of .DLL files in the Waterfox folder that have their own registry keys.

Without being able to run the installer and register the modules, and replace files in other folders that might have been updated, your options are limited.

The best fix would be if the Waterfox code could be packaged in a Vista compatible installer.

The only other option that comes to mind would be to install Waterfox on a Windows 7 system with a verbose system monitor program running that captures and reports all of the changes that the installer makes.

That explains the issues with v36 and v37, ask those are the ones where the installer doesn't work. The v38 installer, however, does run to completion, and it is the one returning the "Not a valid Win32" error. Perhaps although it runs fully, the installer for it, too, is incompatible with Vista?

I wouldn't mind running on v35 except that I get pretty big memory leaks leading to 2.5m and 3m memory usage after awhile.

Which is why a newer version had to come out, we were going crazy about that issue for awhile.

As for a Vista-compatable installer... I have to ask, what's the hitch on that? What makes it not Vista-compatable?

That's my fault! Mozilla removed support for Vista builds and I forgot to revert the patch back in the latest build. 38.0.1 fixes this :)

Are you able to take a recording of the issue at all?

I tried out Firefox Beta for a bit and saw that it downclocks the GPU as it should to 135mhz, but in Waterfox it's stuck at 1177mhz constantly.
Memory clock runs at an increased speed as well, from about 305mhz to 3500mhz.
When the 38.0 update came out, I went back to Waterfox to see if the issue was fixed and it appeared to be the same as the 38.0 Firefox Beta for a bit, but now I have the same problem after installing the new Nvidia driver.

Already tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, Waterfox, and Nvidia drivers, nothing seems to change when I use Waterfox. frown.gif

Please look into this Alex, I'd love to keep using Waterfox!



Ok, figured out what was causing it. If you have [Prefer maximum performance] in Nvidia 3D settings in the Nvidia Control Panel as a global setting, a separate profile has to be made for Waterfox where Adaptive is selected for the Power Management Mode.
I think Firefox does this when it is installed, whereas Waterfox doesn't.

 

I think that's a Firefox bug that they fixed in 38.0.1. Could it be related to this?

I'll have a look into your crashes. Could I get your system specifications??

Basically the installer has a check {AtLeastWin7}. It used to be Vista before, but I've made it {AtLeastWinXP} so 64-Bit XP users don't get left behind. Unfortunately I used the incorrect build SUBSYSTEM set to 7 instead of XP. 38.0.1 should HOPEFULLY work!

Have had a lot of issues with flash lately. Crashing, stuttering playback, etc. Disabled flash and problem goes away. Tried cyberfox and pale moon and same problem. At work, there's been a lot of flash crashes too on machines running firefox. Checked my version of flash and it's 64 bit, so I disabled flash and most sites default to HTML5 video with no problems. I hope we can get rid of flash soon anyway and I uninstalled JAVA a while back and haven't missed it either.

Dont use flash, use an addon called HTML5 Video everywhere!

post #6880 of 7367
I've already installed that but some sites will only work on flash. Where I work has had the same problem and IT won't let us install HTML5 video everywhere until they test it. It's not a big deal on my machine as HTML5 works very well.
