Portable-x64:

I hope they are official since I've installed them.smile.gif
They are not linked on waterfox site or here from what I've found.

he release test builds on reddit so thats prolly where those links came from.

 

That's right :-)

Is this included in Waterfox? If so, can it be disabled? Will it be removed my Mr. Alex?

If the answer to the second two questions are both no, I'm going to have to quit using Firefox/Waterfox. Unbelievable. It's like Mozilla is trying to get people to stop using Firefox.

Try that maybe?

Also, MrAlex, if the ads can't be taken out of the WF code, i suggest forking WF from the last toggleable version of FF and backporting the security patches, a la Pale Moon.

 

 

It isn't included in Waterfox, as I've disabled what I thought to be the relevant preferences, but like snippets it appears that Mozilla is overwriting the default preferences. I'll have to remove the relevant code completely (and hope it doesn't do any damage).

I have been connecting to this site for well over a year without any problems but now I can't any more.
It connects and starts loading then it just hangs.

Anyone else having problems with silverlight sites?

If I open the site in FF v40.0.3 it works without any problems but in WF40.0.3 it just hangs.

MrAlex got any clue?

 

Strange, nothing has changed in regards to NTLM as far as I'm aware. Could it be an add-on update or maybe a sysadmin change?

Thanks for responding MrAlex. Nothing has changed at the site it self. According to the administrator that is. And I have a FF41 and WF40.0.3 installation using same profile. In FF41 it works but in WF it doesn't. I will continue to try and find a solution.. Strange problem tho..

Hi Mr. Alex,

Waterfox 40.0.3 isn't showing up as an Update.

Guys,

I just joined in to take a part in this discussion.

I am using Waterfox 43.0.3 and extremely slow and patchy. It stutters while scrolling , any idea? what is the most stable version?

here are my system specs.mad.gif

Silverlight worked for me when I first installed 40.0.3, but now it doesn't (on amazon anyway). It still works in IE though (this is on Win10 x64).

how about disabling disk cache and using memory cache only?

 

I have 12 windows and 179 tabs running from memory cache only.

 

My addons;

I've been using WaterFox for years. Like most of my programs I have automatic updates enables, and use File Hippo updater, Heimdal and CCleaner to advise me of other program updates.

This just occurred for the first time yesterday (2015-09-29) only 12 hours after using it all day with zero issues. I cannot find any answers pertaining to Win10 Pro 64. Some articles suggested spyware or virus, so I have used Panda Free Antivirus with one PuP and erased it, I have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Home Premium running all the time and scan no less then every three days, plus I used Trend Micro Housecall online scan and nothing. I regularly also use CCleaner Free and Spybot 1.6. I have scanned all drives with all programs.

I also got the same result when trying to open Speccy yesterday, it did open, but it said Java.exe .... same as above, plus when I tried to download Trendmicro Housecall from their site and load it onto my machine, same thing happened when I double clicked to start the program. I had an older version of Housecall on my RAID HDD and used that, it updated itself. I used Ad Block Plus and Privacy Badger. Firefox does work, but PaleMoon 64 did not.

Any suggestions? I cannot find where I left my Hijack This exe, so I have not run that.

WIN10 Pro 64

AMD 8150

16GB RAM

2x EVGA GTX 980Ti ACX 2.0

The only "grey" market anything I have is AnyDVD, but it is not installed anywhere, and I picked it up directly from their website.

I blame WIN10 NOT WaterFox, but their assistance so far, has been underwhelming. SnapShotSpeccy.txt 133k .txt file

I appreciate everyone's assistance in advance.

Thank You.

I definitely think Win10's telemetry stuff and aggressive default autoupdate options may have done something. If you can roll back to 8.1 or earlier, that would the best option, or if you can possibly get Win10 locked down to stop all the phoning home and autoupdating that is your next best option.
