Which means that the bug has not been resolved, but is being worked around, which could have been done all time along. But it doesn't matter, I'm glad the next wf release will be here shortly just as I predicted, so keep scanning this thread for hot news!

I am really happy to see MrAlex is still working on this project.
People can say what ever they want but waterfox is still the best browser..

My biggest problem is that some sites I visit demand me to have very secure browsers. Meaning I can't really use several version old browsers since the bugs in them is leaked on internet for ages.
Soo looking forward to Waterfox v23.
Thanks for letting us know MrAlex, and good luck..thumb.gif

running 18.0.1

Everytime i restart my computer i get a reinstall of the add on "safe server"

this is browser spefic and does not happen to my comodo ice dragon, or standard fire fox browsers. I have disabled it multiple times and removed it, and also ran virus/spyware scans and came up with nothing.

its one of those plug ins that turns key words on teh page green adn makes links out of them

Thanks,
Alex "

So we all have to wait ...........

And another month is gone.........
.....just 10 days to firefox 24 - waterfox is still 18.0.1......

Thank you for your great work Mr.Alex, but I don't see a new waterfox coming around,
2013-01-19 this was the day the last waterfox was released
2013-09-07 is today

"Hi everyone,

Just a small post to let you know how Waterfox 23 is coming along:

The big showstopper bug, has been resolved (more information here).
There are various files that ICC doesn't compile, but VC does, so I have to have manually add those files to be compiled by VC

That means if these files are very few, Waterfox will be able to be released!

The website can now also be accessed via https://

Thank you for your patience, I know it's been a long time since the last version of Waterfox, but I've been working since then getting Intel's C++ Compiler to work and some stellar progress has been made!"


......my patience is wearing thin.........

MrAlex, would you be so kind and leave some words here in the thread YOU started??????

As I said before, the Intel C++ compiler seems to be more trouble than it's worth. On top of that, AMD users won't see any of the performance benefits the Intel users see.

Why can't you guys just have some patience, doh.gif ? Mr.Alex hasn't got a hundred workers under him to help him with the release nor he is a one man army? He has a life and since he's doing this for free and in his free time, respect him for that and just be patient.

Well said. Some of the comments here looks more like threats to stop paying for a product than saddened users.
Intimidation doesn't work when the user isn't giving anything in exchange of a product. Actually, it just makes things worse.

Good to know that Waterfox is still being working on. thumb.gif

Agreed to both. As someone who codes, the work only gets done as fast as the compiler does, when it wants to work. Have some patience guys. Mr. Alex is a busy man and will release the latest version when it is possible to release.
