  1. Past hour
  2. Try the "Classic Theme Restorer" add-on: https://ca-archive.biz.tm/storage/472/472577/classic_theme_restorer_fx29_56-
  3. So, any idea which update(s) to avoid as of 11/11/2019? office 2010, XP KB4464566 ? Seems they keep changing. and it's a really long thread. Thanks
  4. To be specific, I was trying to install the Chromium-based version linked to in @jumper's post directly above mine. (The FF 52-based version is old news.) The Web site claimed XP compatibility, but I was skeptical, and sure enough, it doesn't install.
  5. You're probably trying to install AOL Shield pro which is based on a new version of Chrome. Xp only works with the firefox 52 version which you can get here https://getonline.aol.com/xp-vista/
  6. Today
  7. Cattle Decapitation - A Living, Breathing Piece of Defecating Meat
  8. might try it via a VM to check for any dodgy stuff, it may be sending data or something to a webserver or whatever! Will check out it and if it's all good I might check it out
  9. I think there's an about:config preference you can set to false: plugin.load_flash_only Try it and see. Edit: Yep, it works! You have to create the Boolean pref above and set it to false, but it works. BTW, Serpent 55 is essentially an updated version of FF 53, and it does support NPAPI plugins. Also, it's probably worth pointing out that you will lose some security fixes in moving from FF 52.9 ESR to FF 53.
  10. The "best" browser for XP depends on your hardware. For pre-SSE2 processors, I agree with @looking4awayout: If your system is even older (pre-SSE) your best bet is probably @roytam1's no-SSE build of New Moon 27. For newer systems you have more options. The Chinese Chromium backports are OK if you like Chromium and can deal with the Chinese language. If you prefer a Firefox-based browser, I've had pretty good luck with @roytam1's Serpent 55. It supports more add-ons than his Serpent 52 and I almost never have problems with Web sites not displaying correctly.
  11. Thinking back about the time when "you know who" made a lot of fuss about the branding of the forked browsers, I noticed mainstream Basilisk still contains strings where the browser is referred to as "Firefox".
  12. I have downloaded both versions although the 360SE is 100% chinese and full of advertising banners just like the QQ web browser. I feel sorry for the chinese people who have to deal with slow internet speed, censored sites and spied on 24/h by the government. I had to download the exe files through W7 because none of my browsers were able to do so. to begin I have uncked all cases before installing it because chinese software is often full of spyware and malware now the verdict, I must admit it's the best browser I have tested in a long while, very smooth and does support google store apps... no other spyware program got installed to my knowledge but I would be cautious to use this chinese browsers to make purchases online a few days ago I was about to download the new Yandex version but I don't think I should give it a second chance... LOL
  13. This happened to me too. If I remember correctly, what it ended up doing was adding the contribution amount to my existing login. So instead of $5 total donated it shows up as $10 kind of thing. I think this worked out better, because the number of licenses was more for $10 than it was for 2 x $5.
  14. There is a revival server called "Escargot MSN Server" that works very well, they are currently trying to support WLM 2009 =p
  15. sure https://nojus.trexion.com/local/WinXP/jre-8u231-windows-i586.tar.gz
  16. Despite claims at the Web site, it doesn't seem to install in Win XP:
  17. the best browser is the one that has multi process function enabled and the one that supports official site addons. Firefox52 is still good but more and more sites are not displayed correctly anymore Serpent52 doesn't support most addons even if you manually install them in (Serpent55 unreliable) Centaury52 and Newmoon28 are pretty much the same thing, with my main hardware (AMD BE quad) when you open-close too many apps it gets frozen at around 30% of CPU usage in short, you cannot live with a single of these ''old'' up to date browsers because you may want to use FF52 to test some sites that do not run on them
  18. Anyone got a link to the "jre-8u231-windows-i586.tar.gz" release version? Can't download it from Oracle.
  19. Images often downloaded separately from the email that contains them because they're so large. Outlook uses IE to download these images. If IE can't download an image you'll get the red X, but there are lots of reasons IE might not be able to download from a particular server besides a certificate problem. For example, there may not be a TLS cipher that both the server and IE support. You may find that installing @heinoganda's version of ProxHTTPSProxyMII will resolve many of those download failures.
  20. Just stopped in to say thank you very much for keeping these browser forks updated and working well. A number of web sites are starting to turn their nose up at 27.9, but with the other two, I can still get to where I must on Windows XP. Although I hate how Mozilla messed up the title bar/menus in 52/Basillisk. Noticed that this moved to a new thread on the forum - you guys really need an entire subforum dedicated to this. :) Thanks!
  21. I was going to go post a "stay online" plea as well, but the site is down for me too. :(
  22. Sure, but what's the future of RyanVM? Down for good or will someone post it as read-only, o at least extract unique content somewhere...
  23. Thanks, Mcinwwwwwwwwl and heino. What version of certupdater should I be running on my XP machine, and should I just run it, or should I be doing something special with its folder or files? I have been using Cert_Updater_v1.6.exe, but it came with other files that I don't understand. I notice that many incoming emails on my XP machine (coming into Outlook 2003) have images that don't show -- I get blanks and a small square with a red X -- and yes I run certupdater every few months. Maybe I'm NOT picking up the right cert files ???
  24. Discord is the de-facto chat replacement of the modern age. Other similar programs still exist, such as Arrow Chat, but they are usually used as site-specific chat rooms.
  25. 2.7.1 MSI from python.org/downloads/releases/python-271 installs on win9x. I run the latest python 2.7 by getting files from win7 install of latest 2.7 version. The real python.dll is designed to be compatible with 2K and also will run on win9x. Just copy over from other OS found in system32 directory. Replace third party compiled python.dll with one from python.org.
  26. It is just an emergency check-in thread. We could look into getting a thread at Reboot or in the AutoIT forum (two I can think of with some existing membership crossover).
