Hi everyone!

 

Really sorry about the massive lack of communication over here, I've just been overwhelmed with life and I haven't managed to reply much even though I've been reading all your comments.

In post #7178 of 7181 Alex said ”Yes sorry about that, I was a bit overzealous in removing callback URLs to Mozilla. I'll add it back in next release :-)”.
Alex’s flat got flooded out and had more pressing problems I’m sure.
Anyway thanks Alex for your time & help with Waterfox.

 

My mistake guys, I forgot to add it back in, I'll make sure to try and put in 48 :D

Well it involves me making browsers, so no complaints!

It has been on by default for Aurora since v42 and has been on A/B testing in Beta since v44. v48 will have it on for 1% of qualifying users then v49 should be enabled for everyone. You can see the schedule here :-)

Yes unfortunately Mozilla have implemented a change and it's up to Adobe to make it compatible. There's a new bug tracking this issue here but it's unfortunately very quiet.

Functionally, Waterfox normally runs a bit faster. The Waterfox developer (Mr. Alex) uses a different compiler for the Waterfox code and puts a lot of effort into optimizing the code for higher speeds and performance.

If you should notice any webpage that does not load properly or other operational problems with Waterfox, please post here so that Mr. Alex has a chance to resolve and correct any problems.

Chas
I'll switch over to waterfox then. All of my add ons work fine with it, just wondered if there was anything different, other than a prettier icon. Thanks.

 

From the website (:)):

 

  • No Adobe DRM
  • No Pocket
  • No data collection
  • Run every 64-Bit plugin
  • Run every Add-On (even unsigned ones!)
  • Windows XP 64-Bit Support

Is overclock going away?

The reason I am asking is I see Mr. Alex commented on a post like the one I posted (post #7196) four days ago,
and I am still awaiting a response here.

Thanks for you reply also.

Remember too he was on vacation recently and no doubt is still dealing with the flood (I believe it was) damage to his home and the challenges of his new job. Can't fault a man for puttiing such issues ahead of monitoring and responding to the various forums/websites.

Sorry about that, was just me being busy!

I did not know of Alex's new job. Good luck with your new job Alex.

Thanks for your help Baldone!

 

Thanks, much appreciated!

That's not good. Do you get the same issues on Firefox 64-Bit?

Just updated to 48.0 and so far it seems faster than 47.0.1 and
"Check to see if your plugins are up to date" is working.

I know it get flustering and time consuming developing the Waterfox browser.
I for one really appreciate your work on this project.

THANK YOU Mr. Alex!!! thumb.gif

Discussed here as a preview: https://www.reddit.com/r/waterfox/comments/4ws431/waterfox_48_preview_download_before_release/

I'll wait until Alex releases it as a finished update.
post #7207 of 7367
Baldone,

This update came thru my Waterfox 47.0.1 browser.
A Waterfox window popped up asking if I wanted the update.

Just thought I would let you know how I updated Waterfox.

Stay Safe my friend.

Weird. Do you also have Firefox available on the same computer? And is it set to update beta releases? I have both but both are set to update only normal releases. I haven't received anything about updating my Waterfox. It still says my 47.0.1 is current.

That said I went to https://www.waterfoxproject.org/downloads and it shows v48 available for download.

Baldone,

No I don't have Firefox installed.

I do remember that Mr. Alex had a post earlier
that had us change our configuration to search for new updates.

I don't remember what it was, maybe someone reading this post can help us out.

Stay Safe,

WetLook

I got a notification that an update was available from 47 to 47.0.1 and have never changed any configuration. I seem to recall Mr Alex commenting about a third party site or host being responsible for update notification glitiches some time ago. No clue about now since you were notified and I wasn't. Like I said, "Weird!" LOL

ADDENDUM: Found the answer I think as Mr Alex posted this 2 hours ago: "Automatic updates will be delayed by 24 hours to make sure there aren’t any pressing issues before seeding to everyone."

Also glad FT DeepDark theme has been finally upgraded too smile.gif

Cheers!
