Waterfox updated to 15.0. Must say, they are quite quick with the updates.

Is anyone else running both Waterfox and FF at the same time?

I just installed Waterfox to try it out. However, I notice that if I switch between Waterfox and FF, every time I open the one after using the other, they both act as if they are new installations and go through the "updating add-ons" process. It's annoying. It doesn't happen unless I switch between them.

Is this related to the fact that they apparently share the same profile?

Hi Kendall, the only time that I had installed Firefox and something else of the same family at the same time, it created weird issues. So, as a rule, I don't install browsers that use the same engine at the same time. I am not surprised about what you are seeing. Good luck in your quest. In my case, I already figured out that Firefox is not causing my problems.

Hi Kendall, yes this is the normal behavior when running the two after another. I use both, mainly Waterfox though. But as they use the same profile, when you open FF after Waterfox or vice versa, it will do the checks as you explain, as at launch when it checks the last version opened, it will be a different version number to the one you are trying to run at that time. It also takes you to the FF or Waterfox update/new version page on first open.

It doesn't really bother me as I only run a couple of add ons and I primarily run Waterfox now, so it doesn't happen often to me, or take much time when it does.
