Why doesn't Mr. Alex respond himself,
I didn't even get a response to a PM I sent Alex 12 days ago.

post #7357 of 7361 which was posted over 12 days ago mentioned PM to Mr. Alex and still no response.

Hey all,

Sorry for not responding in a while. I saw how people weren't interesting in the using the browser here anymore and I was a bit disheartened, especially as this is where it all began. But it's nice to see a fair few people here at the very least.

Anyway, v56.0 is now available here.

I'll respond to the other queries a bit later, time for bed :)

Alex,

I thought the same thing as too this is where it all began.
Thanks for your reply and your work on Waterfox, I know it takes a lot of time and patience.

A few of use felt support here was lacking.
I DL ver. 56 and will let you know how it is working for me.

Again Thank You!

Bruce

I switched to WF on my laptop after being less than impressed with FF 57.

So far WF 56 is behaving rather well!

I've been on this site since the beginning and appreciate all your hard work on WF. It's been my primary browser for years.

I'm glad to see WF ver 56 is out. Ver. 53 was buggy for me. It would intermittently stop responding for about 5 seconds, like it was clearing cache or memory. Very annoying.

Looking forward to loading ver.56.

Waterfox 56.0.1 is out! Some security updates and fixes with Java NPAPI (added back the tag to load Web Applets).

I won't be releasing the auto-update to those who aren't on 55.2 until I revert the changes that some popular add-ons don't seem to work with ?

Also, glad you're all enjoying v56!

Thanks!

Quick question - can web applets be selectively loaded? One thing MSIE actually got right way back in the day was allowing the user to be prompted as to whether to let an ActiveX control or plugin run. So if I didn't want a Youtube video to play right away, I just hit "No", and then later if I wanted, I'd reload the page and press "Yes".

Thanks, Mr Alex!

Enjoy seeing all those extra Waterfox entries in Task Manager now!

Not enjoying how the S3 Organizer was clobbered and all my s3 logins lost. Is there a simple way for a simple person to simply migrate the old S3 Organizer config to the new Waterfox config area?

If you know where the extensions stores its data in the profile, you can install it in Waterfox then overwrite the new profile data with the old.

Location on macOS: ~/Library/Application Support/Waterfox
Location on Linux: ~/.waterfox/
Location on Windows: %APPDATA%\Waterfox

Firefox profile location here.

All plugins are click to play by default now :). Not sure if YouTube's Flash player is still available ?.

I am using water fox for my web browser. After about 10-15 minutes I get this popping up and there is no way to close it, only by clt-alt-del will it close. I have run a virus scan but nothing comes up. Anyone have any idea what it could be? I'm on the latest version of water fox also...

That's definitely malware. Launch Waterfox with the -safe-mode flag and then get a list of add-ons about:support > Extensions and take a screenshot/post it here.
