Windows 7: Waterfox + page display fail

Waterfox + page display fail

Hi...I switched from Firefox to Waterfox a while ago because Firefox was becoming more and more unstable. Waterfox constantly does this:

It's the IMDB page...but something happens to the browser causing the display fail. To fix it I have to do this:

I clear the cache and it's ok.


The cache seems to fill and fill...if I set the cache to override auto cache management and set a figure for how many mb of space the same page display fail happens.


Firefow was doing this for me too...Waterfox is an absolute dog with this...it happens all the time.


1. Anyone know how to resolve this cache issue
2. What browsers don't do this?


thanks

Honestly I just dumped Firefox myself and took a minute to think about Waterfox maybe having the same effect pretty much same browser different scheme

Anyway go to Google Chrome Opera those serve very well FF is going down the tubes and it looks like a daily push of people droping it all together because to many stablization issues and using your Videocard which i find is nuts as well

Well it seems that Google Chrome doesn't allow you to open an instance of Google Chrome to your selected home page.

It opens to something that shows 5 icons:

Chrome Web Store
Google Drive
Gmail
Google Search
Youtube

I also noticed that basic searches result in sites that lead to google discussions or google this or google that. It doesn't seem to be a true search...the top 5 or 10 results are pages that have something heavily to do with google.

So...that all...sucks
