Short story first(as people get confused with my detailed descriptions sometimes... hehe)
I decided to try waterfox. I installed it and opened it... looks good. works well so far.
BUT, when I went to open firefox and have them side by side........ waterfox opened. I found EVERY shortcut and program for firefox and it opens waterfox.
I realized that waterfox was built on top of firefox but, I didn't realize that meant it was built on top of it on MY computer. I thought it was a completely separate program.
One of the games I play on facebook wasn't allowing me to send and ask for gifts. I disabled every addon that could have been messing with it... no change. Never could figure it out and found a couple others that had the same issue. The developers just said to try a new browser. I already knew that IE didn't have that issue...
I HATE change... It's tough on me. I've been using firefox for somewhere around 10 years. I HATE MS and Google... don't trust google so I want nothing to do with Chrome... There are a few others out there worth looking at but, I came across waterfox, saw that it was built off of firefox and thought I'd try it.
Interestingly, the gift issue seems fixed using it.
But, I didn't mean to replace firefox all together. I wanted to test it out, not necessarily give up firefox completely.
How did I miss that this would happen? Do they spell it out when either downloading or installing? I certainly didn't see anything that told me I wouldn't be able to open firefox by itself again.
just a little confused.
So far, I can barely tell it's different. So, unless there's some big flaws I'm unaware of, I'm okay with just using it. I mean, so far it's taking care of one issue I had... so that's good.
Just the same, I just didn't expect that opening up firefox was going to open waterfox every time. Odd...
