This stream auto-updates     

  1. Today
  2. Aaaah, i wondered already about that search box issue too but a restart of the OS always helped for some time
  3. It's different. For the Windows Embedded POSReady 7 updates, one has to get them from the MS Update Catalog (they don't come through MU/WU) but they just work, as in the case of Server 2008 updates for Vista. The other involves actively faking a permit, which is against our rules.
  4. Looks like I hadn't installed the latest updates correctly. All is well now! Thanks!
  5. @Tripredacus One thing. Is the topic that was "hidden" any different than POS Ready Updates for XP? That also bypassed the proper terms of agreement for XP, no?
  6. Yes, the posts have been hidden. Not really concerned with people using it or knowing it exists. As a wise man once said "we do not police the internet" ... the notice is in regards to discussion on MSFN only.
  7. Make sure you have Core Updates 4.5.2016.18 or higher. Don't use update 17. Otherwise maybe a missing dll.
  8. After still further reflection, I notice that the ESET "file version" noted by VistaLover on 11/18/2019 is actually the same as my screenshot above, in which the ESET "product version" is correct. Although ESET 13 does not support Vista, ESET 12 is still entitled to some support according to ESET End of Life Policy, with expected EOL in Dec 2022 - i.e. further 12.x versions might be released. Since the download links above all contain /v12/latest/ they presumably would deliver a newer 12.x version in the event that one was released.
  9. yea I knew it is buggy due to Classila's javascript changes. I may just build a plain phoenix 0.5 with TLS 1.2 later. Classila's js has these problems as observed: - __lookupGetter__ seems to be broken - removeTab exists in tabbrowser.xml but it still complain removeTab is not a function
  10. Maybe try this file. Locate the INF file manually and install from there.
  11. Phoenix 0.5 (20200121) works on Windows 98 SE, but with minor bugs (such as about:config initially being slow to respond, and New Tab button taking 2 Clicks to respond the 1st time, and page names not showing on the tab bar most of the time), but besides that, seems to work fine. On Windows 95 however, I get a message saying the SSL protocol has been disabled.
  12. I'm trying to use KM74g on Windows 98SE with the latest KernelEx updates, but I'm getting the error "K-Meleon failed to initialize. Please reinstall." I set KernelEx compatibility mode to Windows 2000, and have tried all of the other available Windows compatibility versions as well. Any ideas?
  13. Confirmed working on Windows 98SE
  14. I love the idea of building a TLS 1.2 compatible Phoenix 0.5 version... Now I'm going to test on Windows 95 and Windows 98.
  15. search box is broken by Microsoft not by OldNewExplorer MS promised to fix it in upcoming update(s)..
  16. Brandnew FUN-resurrection: 100year old PHOENIX browser, now with TLS1.2! (fixing websites denied due to "cipher" errors) https://msfn.org/board/topic/180462-my-browser-builds-part-2/?do=findComment&comment=1176643 (page 50)
  17. Roytam's recent resurrection: K-Meleon 1.5.4 with TLS 1.2! (era Firefox2, for vanilla 98) First build 2019-12-25 (page 37): https://msfn.org/board/topic/180462-my-browser-builds-part-2/?do=findComment&comment=1175258 most of GRE components are replaced with Retrozilla-based build (but not all) Update 2020-01-08 (page 43): https://msfn.org/board/topic/180462-my-browser-builds-part-2/?do=findComment&comment=1175918 archive updated with sha256 and sha384 support. Download: http://o.rths.ml/gpc/files1.rt/K-Meleon1.5.4en-US.tls12.7z KM-Forum for this build: http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?22,151512 ------------ Note for K-Meleon 1.6: Anyone using this for real on Win98 (needs KernelEx), and would like to get back read access for wikipedia, twitter etc. too? You can PARTLY upgrade it by "Do-It-Yourself" ;-) Have played around with this, using blind trial&error method by just copying over some files from KMzilla154 (as I call it). At first it seemed too good to be true, all those crucial domains are finally accessible again, for KM1.6 too. But it's rather shaky, only a crutch. Meanwhile have come across some domains which are still blocked in this messy KM1.6, although they do open fine with roytam's expert build KMz154. After a bit more testing, am now suspecting this tweaked KM1.6 can only open the same domains as Opera12.02? For now that's still a huge step forward, for KM to catch up at least with Opera, but if anyone can figure out more that would be great.

  18. (placeholder for links to some older builds, Fx36 etc)
  19. By far the worst prob for old Win98 browsers in today's web is outdated https-encryption (SSL/TLS). Websites insisting to connect with modern TLS1.2 are completely BLOCKED, showing only error pages, usually this infamous one: Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap That desaster started only 1-2 years ago with Google's command to encrypt the whole public web with modern standards too, and things went downhill fast. Meanwhile half the internet is broken for old Firefox/Mozilla browsers! Amazingly, old Opera12.02 (needs KernelEx) is still holding up much better, it was amazingly advanced for its time, but now losing the uphill battle too. Lucky the people who can run the last Presto version (Opera 12.15?) Luckily, especially for Mozilla fans, rescue came from projects like Retrozilla, with TLS1.2, for pure vanilla Windows98. https://msfn.org/board/topic/174987-x/ And since a few years also from roytam1. Focussing mainly on Mozilla browsers for XP, but occasionally also a special build for older systems. Such a pity that he doesn't create own topics here for his fascinating Win98-browser updates. But hidden away in the middle of giant melting pot topics in the XP-forum that stuff just gets lost. Only just-for-fun hobby users of retro stuff (like himself) may stumble across it over there. So what do, to give notice of those gems to more regular users of old systems too? Which are HERE? Perhaps we can at least collect some links here, for real 9X users, to find that stuff easier. And there's probably more interesting stuff floating around out there somewhere, from other people, that could be added too. For longer discussions of single projects it would be better if anyone can create new separate topics around here, to keep that stuff together, then in THIS topic just post the link and a bit description.
  20. Greetings, im customizing XP to make more 95 "friendly" Any ideas for better customization are welcome, still working in my XP system to be as much close to 95 as can I restore things like pattern and classic graphics in display properties, classic search, remove internet explorer style toolbar from explorer, customize most dialogs to be close to 95 ones, restore old install/uninstall programs and many dialogs, like new hardware, replace USB safe hardware remove with PCMCIA one to be more close to 95 style, split multimedia and sound control panels, and many other things i did not screenshot...
  21. I do think some here fail to fully grasp the scope of Roytam's builds. Roytam doesn't "write" the code, he takes 'upstream' code and 'ports it' to "his" builds. So without an 'upstream' Opera trunk/branch/master, pick your terminology, there is quite literally nothing for Roytam to "do" as far as Opera goes.
  22. most common excuse from software developers is it's an outdated OS... XP is actually only 8 months older than W7 millions of XP users switched to a more recent OS because they knew nothing about web browser alternatives @roytam1
  23. Has anyone here in this thread actually mentioned it? I've been back over the posts and if someone did it passed me by. That ^ actually does more to advertise the tool than anything else I've seen here. Perhaps I'm misinterpreting the intended purpose of the post.
  24. Yesterday
  25. @dapgo hot release https://github.com/Feodor2/Centaury/releases
  26. To be fair, he is right though if the source code was illegally leaked. Quite why Opera are still being so possessive about Opera 12 years after they abandoned it is anyone's guess, but it is their property until they say it isn't any more.
