Anyone using Waterfox?

Recommended Posts

I gave Waterfox a try and set it as the default browser, but now every time I open Waterfox or Firefox I get the pop-up that it's checking add ons for compatibility before the program will open. Anyone know what I need to do to make it not do that? I wonder if it's because I'm using Waterfox 9.0 and Firefox 9.0.1? Do the two versions need to be the same?

I hope the Devs see this and try to shoehorn waterfox into the firefox/mozilla ccleaner

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

Neither I nor Mozilla are confident that any Mozilla based browser will be compatible with any add-ons/extensions.

 

Every time they push through an update they may disable extensions that they have outgrown and you may have to wait for the extension developer to catch up.

 

I like Pale Moon because it is taking more care and time to accept Mozilla "improvements".

Perhaps Waterfox has the same merits.

 

In my view any extension has a better chance of compatibility with both Pale Moon and Waterfox than it has of keeping up with Firefox's mad rush to infinity :)
