About the update asking, I don't have this with 50.1.0 on Debian Stretch.

I downloaded it manually from the website. What I mean is that normally all downloads come with a shasum to check or gpg, but not in waterfox. I think it's not in apt.

The build is a few weeks old, it takes some time.

Current versions of Debian cannot run this without a recompiled GCC library. So if you are not ready to compile the library in question, this cannot work.

 

The library in question was compiled without one file that is needed. And I am not a Debian person, so I cannot advise anyone how to do this.


Debugging is at least twice as hard as writing the program in the first place.

So if you write your code as clever as you can possibly make it, then by definition you are not smart enough to debug it.

It's ready to download for GNU/Linux in tar.bz2 and you can execute it with the waterfox file inside the folder. It's not in the Debian sources yet.

Current as in stable/Jessie? Works on testing/Stretch.

Indeed Jessie. I should have been more specific.

In this case you might just need to update gcc. Compiling it is a pain in the ass, if you ask me.

Download it from the website or just compile it yourself.

 

 

As of Waterfox 50.0, it is possible to build Waterfox on Linux, making Waterfox available for all major platforms. I'm now considering Waterfox again.

 

--------

yeah , but    https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/waterfox-bin/ has bin only  ... seems no one did it before !

I still strongly recommend to avoid it. From:

https://www.reddit.com/r/waterfox/comments/4oag2y/waterfox_47_release_june_2016/

 

  • Fixed Netflix playing issues once more. It appears that Netflix compares user agent strings against the ability of that browser version to play EME. I've now set the user agent to pretend that Waterfox is Firefox 38, which seems to have fixed the issue once more

 

Great choice, now you have a unique fingerprint on the web since nobody is using Firefox 38 in 2017.

 

 

  • There was very bad weather in London last week and my flat got damaged in the process. Unfortunately a lot of my computer equipment got Water damage, which has delayed the release until now. My Mac is being repaired by Apple (once more), so expect Mac builds to be delayed once again.

Your security and updates are in the hands of a single developer, which is never a good practice when you need constant updates, and with browsers, you really need them.

It only overrides this for amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, netflix.com and chase.com...

general.useragent.override.netflix.com;Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0

As I wrote, these "horrible defaults" can be easily changed.

I generally use x64 FireFox, but thought I'd give WaterFox a try for what it disables.  Unfortunately (on Win10) WaterFox becomes unresponsive if I try open the Addons option.

I'm using Chromium, Tor browser with and without Tor, Waterfox, Firefox ESR and Pale Moon . I've configured the last 3 ones by about:config:to obtain more privacy + add some extensions  .

The browser that I prefer far away is Palemoon , light ,safe,  stable and efficient .

Would be nice if some guys  using the same browser give me their feedfack

I used Palemoon a lot, now from time to time. The problem is that it's not 100% compatible with many websites and domains, but I love it. Most of the time I only use Tor Browser and when I need to do some things that it's impossible with Tor Browser then I use Firefox and Palemoon with some changes. I also tried Waterfox before but not now. And of course I never use my real IP in my PC: I deny all connections with gufw in GNU/Linux and then I use Eddie with network lock enabled (it starts the new firewall rules) and connect with some AirVPN servers, then to Tor Browser.
