Waterfox 56 Portable
A “new” browser will soon be released to keep up with the constantly changing browser landscape. You can update your profile.ini to continue using the location you have chosen as Firefox’s default. Some websites require a standard Firefox user agent. Please request a standard Firefox user agent to be installed for websites that aren’t functioning. This browser is designed for power users. It allows you to make the most important decisions. There is no plugin blacklist. You can use any extensions (including Classic Firefox Addons!) Mozilla and the Waterfox projects receive no data, telemetry, or other information.
This will be useful for users who wish to use older add-ons and legacy systems that have not been updated to v68. The source code for Firefox was taken and compiled to work on 64-Bit Windows computers. Although it isn’t a fancy or complex browser, it will import all your Firefox settings and integrate them, making it easy to use. Waterfox will remain at 56 until the security updates of 59 ESR are complete.
After you restart the browser after an automatic update, you’ll be prompted to import your data. I will be switching from Visual Studio 2015 to the Clang build system. This will result in significant performance improvements.

Waterfox Portable is a 64-bit Open Source 64-Bit Mozilla Firefox version for Windows and Linux. Windows installer updated to display the MPL 2.0. Fixed executable description, icon. Disable e10s-multi if add-ons are marked as incompatible.
What is the Future Development of Waterfox Like?
Some add-ons may not be compatible with e10s, so enabling e10s default will fix any unexpected behavior. Fix plugin problems by checking. Mozilla rather than. water for If they are still on v56 users will not have to upgrade to v68, but they may be notified that it is available once v68 becomes stable.
Waterfox needs your support. Please consider using the default search without AdBlock. It would be a great way to show your support. Waterfox will continue to be maintained in two branches: Waterfox Classic and Waterfox. Waterfox Classic will continue to be on the v56 branch and will receive security and bug fixes for as long as it is possible.
All classic add-ons are now available in a backup from the Mozilla Addon Store. This backup is mirrored on Waterfox CDN. To view the catalog, you can use the Classic add-on Archive addon. This feature will be included in the next minor Waterfox version (56.3). Waterfox has been updated with the most recent ESR security fixes.
I will be exploring self-hosting a system like Commento. The website has a few issues that I don’t like, including the use of Google Analytics.
Disable e10s if you are having issues with add-ons. Disqus and GA both have settings that I’ve gone through and deactivated as much tracking as possible. Anonymisation is not ideal, so it’s best to rely on third-party service.
