Waterfox is essentially Mozilla Firefox's code compiled as a 64-bit application for Windows. It includes support for all of Firefox's features including plug-ins, extensions and everything else you expect Firefox to do. Visually, the only different layout feature you might notice is the blue logo. Waterfox/Firefox supports profiles. To view the location of your current profile open about:profiles in the address bar. This page can be useful for recreating a profile that has become prone to crashing by creating a new profile and copying the original/useful files over to the new profile. ⚠ A cleaned up modern profile for Fixed Firefox (Waterfox) will be added to this page. Waterfox is an open-source web browser for x64, ARM64, and PPC64LE systems. It is intended to be ethical and (in Waterfox Classic) maintain support for legacy extensions dropped by Firefox, from which it is forked.
