IMPORTANT! Waterfox now uses its own profile location!

Waterfox now uses its own profile directory. If you have updated from an automatic update, you will get a prompt to import your data to this new location after restarting the browser post update.

As much of your data will try to be kept as possible.

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

So do ccleaner users need to use custom location until piriform devs change the detect/cleaning rule.

Waterfox 55.2.1 Released for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android

 

 

After a lot of late nights, the next version of Waterfox is here! This version lands some very important changes that pave the way to keeping add-on support in Waterfox. Waterfox now uses its own separate profile directory and migrates all your existing data to it. In the coming future the website will get an infrastructure update to pave the way for an add-on store.

 

 

NOTE: SOME SETTINGS (INCLUDING ADD-ONS) MAY BE RESET! Unfortunately due to the way the profile import works, this was necessary. You CAN change which profile to use, the same way as Firefox, if you’d like to use the old location. There will be teething issues, please be patient and just report any issues you do have, I will try my best to have them resolved.
