This is really great news. I had starting using the new Firefox 57, but was continually encountering problems. I installed the beta, copied the Firefox profile over and Icedragon runs so much better! Thank you so much for making this available. I’ve used Icedragon for years and using Firefox for a few months was a really bad move of mine. Thanks again.
Why is the name for the downloadable file for the ‘beta’ edition or version, icedragonsetup.exe? This is the same name as the current stable version 52. The naming as the same does not seem good to do. (I wish to try this beta version hoping it will/would be better than version 52 Ice Dragon.)
One question about this other than the confusion in the setup file name, can we unpack both portable forms of Ice Dragon on the same computer? I already have portable stable version 52 of Ice Dragon; and I might like to try beta version 57 of Ice Dragon, on the same computer. Good to do or not good to do? BOTH as portable.
You can use as many portable versions as you want, even different versions of the browser, each has it’s own user data folder so profiles are not shared. The only limitation is if you open both versions at the same time only the one you opened first will be in use. Just be careful when you install to not do that in the same path as the old portable.
I have installed the beta version 57.0.1 and it crashing on a regular basis (Specially when I am on Facebook and/or Ebay).
It gives me the option that I can restore the sessions, but there is no option to report the crash, so it can be investigated by you.
