Thanks. I am not a registered member of GitHub so I cannot submit a bug report. My problem is, I don't know if what Alex is doing now is the way he wants to do it.
Like I said, when I downloaded the G6.0 linux tarball for Waterfox, when clicking on "Extract Here", one gets many sub folders and individual programs which makes up the linux Waterfox browser. But not the name of the folder which is "waterfox" (without the quote marks). Still is happening in the G6.0.3 tarball.
The old way since it's inception for linux Waterfox which includes all the series up to and including the G5 series; when the linux tarball was downloaded, right clicked on and then left clicked on "Extract Here", the folder which was extracted was named correctly, "waterfox" (without the quote marks). Not all the folders and programs which make up the linux Waterfox browser.
Extract the folder from the Pale Moon tarball and the folder which is extracted is correctly named, "palemoon" (without the quote marks). Mercury tarball and the extracted folder is correctly named, "mercury" (without the quote marks). SeaLion tarball and the extracted folder is correctly named, "sealion" (without the quote marks). THIS is the CORRECT way.
By extracting all the sub folders and programs from the tarball which makes up linux Watefox, but not extracting the main "watefox" (without the quote marks) named folder, THIS is the INCORRECT way.
It just seems to me Alex is trying to "re-invent the wheel" when there is no need to. I cannot believe linux Waterfox power users would agree to his new way because it seems to me his new way is the default now.
Jumping through hoops to make unnecessary work for me is not going to endear me to use linux Waterfox very much. Since the linux Mercury browser "gets it right" in the above, it has EARNED it's place to be my backup browser to linux Pale Moon.
If you think I'm making a "mountain out of a mole hill", I have six linux hard drives with all of the above browsers being used in Mint and MX Linux. I do not need any extra work for one browser when dealing with six hard drives.
But I do have one reservation about the Mercury browser. Waterfox is built by a person named "Alex". The Mercury browser is built by a person with the SAME first name of "Alex". I just hope the person named "Alex" which builds Mercury is NOT the same person named "Alex" which builds Waterfox.
