@MoreThanADev: Thanks, that worked.

@ALEX: Works OK with Win8, no crashes. Only issue is that mine is labelled "Nightly" instead of "Waterfox". Might want to fix that in the next build. Also Updater does not run.

thanks for the update, seems to be working on my end quite well, missed using a 64bit browser haha tongue.gif Runs so smooth and doesn't seem to have any qwerks at the moment. Will repost if i run into any issues.

Current issues (that are probably known/other users have posted):
Nightly stuff, firefox exe

Current issues i've found:
Currently none

Edit: one fix i've found, cpu issue that was happening in 18.0.1 seems to be gone, suspected it would be fixed anyways, just letting everyone know

Edit2: i just realized something, im not using 64bit plugins (did a reformat not too long ago, never bothered to reinstall old waterfox, or any other 64bit browser) and stuff like flash are working just fine, does shockwave just work in 64bit now, or is this actually a 32bit build? (just wondering since i haven't installed any 64bit plugins)

Edit3: nevermind about 32bit, some other plugins aren't installed that i had, weird that shockwave was already working lol

ISTR Shockwave Flash will install both versions if you have a 64bit OS.

Waterfox, Website Update: 6 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 390
www.overclock.net/t/975626/waterfox-website-update-6... Cached
Hello, I've started using Waterfox a couple of days ago, ... I see a bunch of orphaned files, directories, at least one windows google service left on my machine; ...

Can you tell me what happened to the reply to this users question? I can't find it. I have 18.0.1 running on a Win7 Pro 64bit and after just one use I have 100's a mb of directories and file under my username with firefox and hj2idflz.default in the names. Most of the folders are only 1 to 2 characters.

My apology for posting this here if it is not the right place. I assume you'll move or delete it, but I am desperate and can't find anywhere else for an answer...Sorry and Thanks

I'll look into it. So after using WF do you get lots of files within your user profile? And this is running everything with default settings?

Firefox.exe won't open. Looks like I'll have to wait for an installer.

I don't know if you can do anything about it, but for some idiotic reason Mozilla decided to remove the check box to not show tabs if only one is open--AGAIN. If you can put that back that would be great (I realize you only recompile what they do but just thought I'd say it anyway).

RE: So after using WF do you get lots of files within your user profile? YES, 100s most with nothing or very little in them.

RE: And this is running everything with default settings? YES didn't set any preferences.

Is there a newer version I should be using? I'd rather not go to the 24 beta. Thanks for your reply and help

Just to clarify: Are you simply recompiling Firefox code or are you making changes to optimize for 64-bit as well? (If so, it doesn't appear to be mention anywhere on your website)

Also, benchmark tests to prove these performance increases you claim would be nice. Otherwise this is just self-promotion with no basis in proven facts.

And to end with a minor bug: In the Help>About Waterfox the waterfoxproject.org link actually links to mozilla.org

Huh? Read the whole thread and your doubts will be answered. Don't come badgering here accusing MrAlex of "self-promoting".
