No, unfortunately.

 

Hmm that's strange.

i used FEBE to backup my firefox profile items, then restored the searchs back into waterfox 39.

 

works in both now :)

 

Have you managed to get it to work? You can go to C:/Program Files/Waterfox/searchplugins or C:/Program Files/Waterfox/browser/searchplugins and waterfoxsearch.xml should be there. You can then paste that XML in the same directory structure for your other Firefox browsers and it should appear in the search engine list.

I can have it enabled if you'd like, (but not on by default) in the next build?

Welp, after a long time away from Waterfox I decided to give it a go once more on my Win7 HTPC. smile.gif

38.1.0 includes the Firefox change that effectively disables "Switch to Tab", which is nice!

The icon is a little bit too dark blue for my liking, but we can't all get what we want. tongue.gif

Self-Destructing Cookies "took" fine on it, and while Avira's Safe Browsing add-on seemed to integrate fine into WF, I decided to disable it anyway because it had some crashing issues on Firefox on my laptop.

HTML5 in youtube works well, albeit with what seems to be a slight delay in the autio.

mr alex, optional e10s (code name 'electrolysis') would be nice. it's working reasonably well in the firefox nightlys (FF42.01A) tho it does crash tabs occasionally so caveat emptor. waterfox 42 & it's bug fixes will be a while yet i presume ;)

I don't know if anybody mentioned this (this thread is getting really long) but in Waterfox 38.1 (I'm not sure about previous versions) in Options, Advanced, Network, it shows that Waterfox is using "0 bytes" of disk space for the cache.

I have the cache set to 50MB and "browser.cache.disk.parent_directory" set to "H:\"

I deleted everything from H:\ (a dedicated drive for the cache) and opened Waterfox and went to a few sites and it adds a loaded cache folder, so I assume the cache is working, but it's not reporting the correct value.

No idea if this is specific to Waterfox or if it's a Firefox problem in general.

I am using Windows 7 x64.

P.S. When I click "clear now" nothing happens (the data on H:\ isn't reduced at all).

Just downloaded this and I really like it so far. Takes a little getting used to but I like it.

Awesome. The new icon (if everyone likes it) will come with 40.0 and it's in my avatar.

Sure, I'll add it in the next build :-)

I'll look into this, does the same for me.

It should do, I haven't had any issues bar in a previous version where it'd crash. Has been patched though.

Is this a good replacement for Firefox? Is it just as stable and allows account linking (to restore my favorites, settings, etc.). I like having a single stable browser on my OS that works with most sites. Chrome does not work for certain sites, like CDPR forums and several tech support chatrooms. I also have only 700KB/sec connection - would I even experience improved performance with that if I go from Firefox to Waterfox?
