  2. Emby and Plex have much in common: Both are cross-platform media servers similar to Kodi. Both are basically free, but both have premium features that require payment (known as Emby Premiere and Plex Pass respectively). More to the point, both ended support for Windows Vista in 2016. According to an August 2016 Emby thread, compatibility with Vista was broken when .NET 4.6.2 was bundled with the installer. GitHub appears to have taken down releases that old (so someone there should edit System Requirements), but VideoHelp Version History suggests that 3.0.6060 was probably the last version that could be installed on Vista. This May 2016 Plex post offered no explanation. I hesitate to mention this, but FileHorse appears to have Plex 0.9.16.6. There is reason to think it required Visual C++ 2015. I doubt that this information would actually make the list more useful, but I wanted to post it in the thread anyway.
  3. How do you do that on Firefox without an extension?
  4. Again, it's not necessary to do general spoofing or even use an extension. Use a specific spoof for a single website.

    Hi, here you are, please have a look. VEN_8086&DEV_15B8

    There are pretty much nothing new, or anything reasonably newer that works without driver hacking. let it be known.
  8. For the audio, everything I tried to find indicates to me that no one has got it to work. However I don't beleive that it's impossible to hack the driver files for it to work. This driver here is the oldest best driver I can find that has potential for it to work or be forced to work. You will notice that there are a few 9x hot fixes in the root of the folder. Make sure you install those. There is a folder that says SE in the WDM folder and I looked in the INI and it has a line with the same hardware ID as your adi, which leads me to beleive that its possible to make it work. There is another hotfix I found that should be installed 1st before u install the other ones i beleive. http://www.mediafire.com/file/62d7qxrjskaqb5l/242937USA8.EXE/file http://www.mediafire.com/folder/33hqy00o5n4qk/AUDIO_XP_2K_050908 PS I found some other drivers that are not specifically for that hardware but for an older chipset. That is option B. let me know if you cant make these work somhow

    What is best Firefox version for Win-7?

    I have tried SeaMonkey & Pale Moon. Both are missing critical features that FF v56 has, namely print preview, 'Simplify page" and/or the lack of navigation button add-ons . BUT, they are superior to FF with far less overhead taxing (loading down) the O/S with multiple processes running, even with setting a limit to one process. There are still three running! This is a screen shot from ProcessHacker after less than 1 minute after starting FF with only one page open (which is just a login for a stock market trading site). (The 3 last columns are I/O counts of Other, Reads & Writes counts). Compare that with Palemoon & SeaMonkey with the same page loaded! (Palemoon is a portable also, just not from Portable Applications web site)
  13. I've noticed, that FF 3.6 does not render background colors of HTML elements. Is there any solution?

  15. Yeah it is fairly old (Core duo 1.83ghz) Like i included into my edit of the previous post, adding noscript to the browsers has resolved the issue. :)
  16. you may try creating a new clean profile and test sites on that profile (to eliminate issues from extensions) but if your CPU is too weak/old, then it is not much you can do.
  17. yeah i did notice a couple long-running script errors. what do you recommend to do so i can get them in check? UPDATE: I tried noscript, seems to do the trick.
  18. maybe it is not related to graphics but heavy javascript? BTW you can try toggling layer.* switches (like layers.prefer-opengl, layers.acceleration.disabled, layers.deaa.enabled, layers.bench.enabled, etc.) in about:config?filter=layer to see if issue can be relexed or not.
  19. Installer system upgraded to handle latest builds, as always. Hopefully sometime this coming week I'll figure out and release win2k and SSE support for the installer.
  20. Yeah it does start in the browsers safe mode. but i have the same issue of it freezing on ebay item pages and amazon login. I tried the latest builds, too. Eventually it does unfreeze but not before a few minutes has passed.

  27. Hi. I have the same problem that Destro was having. In the IE Windows Update Menu, the hide update check box is grayed out. What is another way I can hide the update. Thanks in advance, Matthew Montano Update.bmp
