  1. FF with 15 addons and 200 tabs - 1.1gb
  2. I worked that out by copying the first line, then searching the full file for it. Just thought there might be an easier way. Presume it's a GitHub bug/quirk
  3. I'd already done that in the screenshot I posted (hence no arrow showing), was the first thing I tried. Clicking it in the patch posts doesn't work. It does work for the below post, but not for the patch posts (tried in FF, IE and chrome in case a browser specific issue)
  4. Nope, you lost me. When I click the change links like that, this is what I see. How do I tell what program entry it is that has been edited so I can copy to the right place in my winapp2 file?:
  5. How do you see what entry is being altered on GitHub? It cuts off the first part in change links like above, is there anyway to make it show the the lines above so you can see what entry the change actually applies to?
  6. Another minor version update, FF 49.0.2:
  7. Geez, just as I get over my SSD wear paranoia, THIS pops up in the browser I use for hours a day!
  8. I would say at least a 24 hour wait would be a sensible idea, and would save you going through adding AND deleting when a duff entry is posted
  9. Do you do any checking of entries? Seems they are posted and immediately added. At least with the former monthly updates it gave users a chance to check entries posted here and give a yay or nay, and pick up on dangerous entries, whereas now they're instantly added, which seems to me like a slowly brewing recipe for disaster
  10. So glad you're here to enlighten us about all this stuff we "wouldn't even know"
  11. And ANOTHER minor version bugfix release: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/49.0.1/releasenotes/
  12. FF49 released: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/49.0/releasenotes/
  13. The ones that delete old Windows installations, the $patchcache and the winsxs backup folder are definite no no's IMO (I do occasionally wipe the latter, but seen others have issues caused by it). In all my years of computing I've never seen a convincing/safe reason to delete the $patchcache, other than a last resort if running out of disk space. And the old installations files, seems common sense to not delete them, at least not as a matter of course in a cleaning program.
  14. Another Mozilla bloat success story
  15. Thought that was what everyone did? Removing/splitting entries is a terrible idea IMO. Does trim.bat really take THAT long? EDIT: Just had a thought, wouldn't it actually SLOW things down for users, as they'd have to run trim.bat on TWO files instead of one. Or have to go through the so called 'old' file and copy and paste them all individually into their winapp2, which would then be overwritten the next time they downloaded winapp2, leaving them doing the whole process again?
  16. I was gonna reply to ROCKNROLL's post, but you said it all for me, and probably more eloquently/politely lol, so will just say..... seconded
  17. 48.0.2 pulled due to the bugfix not actually fixing the bug
  18. Aaaaah, that explains the mixed up entries I was seeing. I was reading it as red - removed, green - added, white - unchanged I'm guessing nothing can be done about the wall of text that winapp2 downloads as?
  19. I was referring to the changelog link you posted before my post which has this in it: [Stored Media Player Paths*] LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows RegKey5=HKCU\Software\Xilisoft\Video Converter Ultimate\Settings|recent_profiles RegKey6=HKCU\Software\Xilisoft\Video Converter Ultimate\Settings\output (Github version is horrendous to view in Notepad when dowloaded btw ) EDIT: Looks like Github is confusing me and I simply don't understand the changelog layout as that is not in the actual file (Once I found an actual way to download winapp2 from Github that is. And that was AFTER I somehow downloaded an old version from there. User friendly it is not )
  20. And a Media Player entry now has Xilisoft lines in it, whilst the Xilisoft entry has been removed Either I'm misunderstanding it or the GitHub idea is going tits up at the mo.
  21. Um, why has the Stardock Fences entry got Steam locations in it??? [Stardock Fences*] LangSecRef=3024 Detect=HKLM\Software\Stardock\Misc\Fences Default=False FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files*\Steam\depotcache|*.* FileKey2=%ProgramFiles%\Steam\depotcache|*.*
  22. Make that 25 updates between FF40 and 48! https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/48.0.2/releasenotes/
  23. I was referring to the lack of a Samsung folder in your path, perhaps Windows specific path differences (Win7 here). (although on a side point I wasn't aware there was a specific 64bit version, using 64 bit Windows but Magician installer installs to Program Files (x86) by default here)
