    The patched version of EE 360 browser has preference for displaying sites in Russian. How do I force it to English? Relevant items in Settings page seem to be missing. Edit: found solution. 360Chrome\Chrome\User Data\Default\Preferences With text editor, look for "accept_languages" Flip language order like: "accept_languages": "en-US,en,ru-RU,ru" Clear cookies or start with new Portable if sites are still RU.

    As you all know, the motherboard of my RDD has bit the dust. So, I have replaced it with an interim one, an Asus TUV4X, which unfortunately is defective as well (extremely long boot times, most likely capacitor issues). While I am waiting for the arrival of the new one (which boots XP in normal times, just 18 seconds on an old clunky 30GB hard drive), I am in the process of setting up the OS (this time the RDD is going to be a more powerful Tualatin system in terms of processing power and RAM) and so, I have installed a genuine copy of XP Pro SP3 including an original product key I stored long ago. Well, when it came to activation, I did the good old online process, and interestingly enough, Windows activated itself without any issue... Either it was luck or I just don't know.

    I was back in northern Italy and I stumbled on this: Apparently, someone tried to remotely reboot this train ticket machine, but it got stuck on "You can now turn off your computer" because of missing ACPI drivers, which is weird considering that it's an embedded machine. Anyway, this just shows that in 2020 Windows XP is still very much alive all over the world.

    Jody Thornton said: > I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I have a hard time believing that the user base remaining is that low. I believe it's mainly due to fake UserAgent strings. When websites start boycotting certain old systems or browser versions, first with nags and then kicking visitors out completely, when more and more sites are getting hostile, users are just forced to fake their browser strings. And miraculously most websites start working again, fully or almost, without any "support" necessary... Same effect as for Win98 in the past. And a second dilemma, when statistics drop below a certain low level, it becomes an increasing privacy/fingerprinting risk to belong to such a tiny minority.

    @Werewolf Thank you so much for the HUGE list of additions! Finally got around to adding them all. Glad to see you around again. I have you to thank for my list gaining popularity in early/mid 2017 thanks to the plethora of additions you provided then. Thanks again! In addition to what Werewolf posted, I have added another piece of software called Ripcord to "Instant Messaging" section, after discovering it in a thread over at the XP forum here. What makes this software unique is that it provides a fully functional Discord client for Windows Vista users, which I much prefer to using the Web version: As you can see, this is based on QT, rather than the infamous Electron (which is like a cancer contributing to the sharp decline in software support for Windows XP/Vista since 2015 ) which allows it to work flawlessly on Windows Vista. Voice Chatting also works great, for those wondering. I can't seem to find any system requirements listed anywhere, but since it does not work on Windows XP (giving a "not a valid win32 application" error message, indicating the software was built targeting Windows NT 6.0 as the minimum) I will assume that it officially supports Windows Vista or later. Also, Telegram Desktop 1.8.15 has been listed as the last version for Windows XP and Vista (1.9.0/1.9.1, both pre-releases, do not work due to missing DLL functions; the developer has stated here that it will not be fixed).

    @Cixert : The "Preferences" (no file extension there!) file is the one that stores your custom browser preferences (modified from their original default values) and, as posted, should be found within your "Profile" folder, usually under ".\User Data\Default" First, BACK UP that file to a secure location in your disk, before you attempt messing with it manually; any such attempt should be made with the browser exited! The file itself is in a human-readable "pretty-printed" JSON format; open with a proper text/code editor; search for string "accept_languages" It should be there (with, I suspect, zh-CN as the first/default choice in the official Chinese version of 360EEv11); if this JSON block isn't there in your case (but it should be in an already used profile where the user has selected the English language pack), then you should create yourself a nested JSON block for it... I opted to display pages in the Greek language, if available, first - for example, the Google Web Store[GWS], so my manually modified setting inside the "Preferences" file looks like below: "intl": { "accept_languages": "el-GR,el,en-US,en" }, That code means that whenever the page hasn't got a Greek version available, the browser will fallback to displaying the American-English localization of it, and so on (if you add additional locales in that line) ... (Save the modified file while the browser is closed, then launch the browser anew and check for the effect of your new "custom" preference!) Hope I've helped

    @Mathwiz : Hope you're doing fine in the new year ; when you first posted this some days ago, I was genuinely puzzled, but since I was occupied with other matters, both in digital (!) and real life , I left it aside for future investigation; my contribution to the subject at hand was simply which basically links to the old Bugzilla bug #967977 Today I had some extra time and decided to search the official UXP GitHub repo/issue tracker, to find proof which substantiates the report that: (them in that context refers to TLS Session Tickets/TLS cache); I've searched specifically for code that sets the hidden pref security.ssl.disable_session_identifiers to true, but my search was, alas, fruitless... I then browsed @roytam1 's forked UXP repo, both branches (master+custom), for similar code signs, but to no avail, again ... So, by simply going with public source code, I found no clues that the default behaviour in either (official) PM28 and/or (forked) NM28 is to disable TLS session tickets, as you suggested... But you are not to blame yourself , I have myself in the past "slipped" in a similar fashion... ; the blame lies on the OP, for causing undue confusion over a "supposedly" new-found issue, most likely self-inflicted: ... was the post that started all this ; as part of my investigation, I have downloaded said NM28 build (BuildID=20200104010047), as well as the one after it (BuildID=20200110230556) and guess what one finds by visiting https://www.howsmyssl.com in a brand new/fresh (browser) profile: and So, nothing has changed in NM28 with regard to TLS Session Tickets, they are enabled by default (which yields the green "Good" button in that test page) ... Once more, it was simply @msfntor 's troll-ish behaviour in posting unchecked/unverified untruths, which ended up wasting people's time...

    @roytam1 Call the browsers as you like but leave the exe with the original name. If you change the name of the exe, a multitude of software will no longer work, especially those specific for the protection of the browser used which have strict rules for the various popular browsers used. @LoneCrusader Even if I'm in the minority, I think the same way you do.

    As I've posted in a previous thread, it is possible to get Ryzen working on Vista, but drivers are kind of a pain to get working. Windows 7 USB3 drivers do work on Vista, but don't try and slipstream them, because they're not signed for NT 6.0. I would recommend first installing using a PS/2 keyboard and a DVD, if possible.

It's not a big issue to do that though, and I've never had spam from them or anything like that. There may well be other places you can get the file if you don't want to do that. HTH.

    This is what @Matt A. Tobin said when he suggested the code names he used: So yes; those "in the know" might get that Freestyle, e.g., is the media-focused browser of the bunch. But we don't have to use those particular names; they just comprise a theme for those "in the know." True, I didn't know those code names either until @Matt A. Tobin suggested them. But no one needs to understand the theme to use the names! If you open it up to all M$ code names (not just XP versions), you have some better choices IMO. For New Moon, Triton is an obvious choice (it's a moon, after all); Aurora is the obvious choice for Borealis. The artwork to use for both is obvious too. We could reuse Whistler (and the artwork @Matt A. Tobin et al. came up with for that name) for Interlink, and stick with Freestyle and Moebius for Serpent 52 and 55, respectively. First, folks were complaining about the lack of choices. But now, a poll would probably look something like this:

    ... But mere mortals running Vista SP2 32-bit are, once again , excluded from even trying to run that application on their Vista copy... If you had tried on (regular) Windows XP SP3 32-bit with lowering the subsystem version in the PE header to 5.1 (it's set to 6.0 by default), I guess a similar error, pertaining to win32 apps, is to be expected, as the application is NOT win32, compiled to be only runnable in the 64-bit architecture... What I can see , based on your attached screengrab, is that the app was compiled using version 5.9.7 of the Qt Framework, which in itself provokes major surprise on yours truly... ; I have always known, and that knowledge is based on official Qt documentation, that the last Vista-compatible version of the framework was 5.6 (5.6.3 to be exact!), and only on client machines : https://doc.qt.io/archives/qt-5.6/supported-platforms.html ... whereas v5.9 of Qt has zero support for Vista (and, of course, XP): https://doc.qt.io/qt-5.9/supported-platforms.html Any explanation as to how a Qt 5.9 built application is able to launch under Vista SP2 64-bit is highly welcome (if somebody can provide one ) ... For official system requirements, see @win32 's post; so, your assumption is not correct, as Vista (64-bit only) isn't officially supported! Given that the PE-header in the main executable is set at a subsys version of 6.0, at least our beloved OS was taken into consideration in that regard, but who can say which NT version the actual build-time compiler optimisations were targeting? As detailed above, I remain quite sceptical this is indeed running under Vista SP2 64-bit... OT: I hope you all had a great Xmas Day, surrounded by your loved ones; best wishes for the New Year, too!

    Merry Christmas to all :) Just discovered the Firefox Legacy Collector Dump on archive.org. Here's the grim description link with some information pasted below in case the link disappears: https://archive.org/details/Firefox_Legacy_Collector_Dump It is unclear to me whether the maintainer is shutting down a personal site or removing the collection from archive.org, believe it's the latter. RetroZilla and old SeaMonkey utilize *.xpi extensions, query how many of these extensions might work on these old(est) browsers. Just thought some may find it useful. The entire collection appears to be ~8 GB: https://archive.org/download/legacycollector.org.tar.xz The itemized list is very long and takes a long time to successfully load in RetroZilla without JavaScript. May want to open a CPU and RAM process monitor beforehand or use a little better hardware if available.

Since starting this, end 2018, in response to Mozilla removing all legacy extensions from its add-ons site, with plans to expand to include more, similar "legacy" content, a few things have changed needing me to re-evaluate both the need for this site and my desire to run it. Most importantly I've received several threats to my person for running legacycollector.org - not the kind of thing I signed up for. But hey, Internet, if that is how you want to play ball, I'm out. Considering this, I've decided to stop providing this free archive and void my plans. This archive will be shut down in December 2019. Merry Christmas. Mozilla has removed all "legacy extensions" from their add-ons site in November 2018, leaving many users of older "long term support" versions of the browser, as well as browser forks, dead in the water.

    That article does not say that exactly - the assumption is it will but until MS unequivocally say that I won't believe it and even then I bet there will be a time limit. With XP MSE worked fine long after official support had ended but then out of the blue users suddenly found they could not update MSE automatically or through MSE itself when installed on an XP machine (that included VMs too). It all had to be done manually. Then that ended, again without warning, and we had to rely on the helpful people here and elsewhere who came up with a way installing the new MSE definition updates which wouldn't have otherwise been possible. But within a few months even that was torpedoed by MS and we were stuck with finding a decent alternative AV to replace MSE that worked with XP. It'll be the same thing with Win7 eventually.

Seems pretty innocuous to me, > but you never know what might turn folks off unless you ask! Nothing objectionable, but turning off from completely "unknown" browsers without even taking a short look is quite normal. Therefore, to give clueless users at least a tiny hint about origins and intentions, I'd find it helpful to keep stubs like -fox- and -moon- in some way, and add "X" somewhere as hint if the XP-capability is crucial for a build. Of course, not only for completely clueless newbies, but also helpful for the rest of us to easier remember what's what :-)

    Learned a new word today! Although in these parts, we still call it, uh, a still... It's a bit belated, but I wanted to say thanks for that tip! It's finally given me a way to maintain multiple Firefox versions on the same PC, each with its own profile, without a kludge like setting up separate Windows users (and having to log out and back in) to access each version. Just make sure to include the intended FF version in the name of each profile you set up. Very useful when you want to test FF versions ranging from 45 through Quantum to "Firefox Browser" (or whatever the name of the week is). Even on XP, I now have FF 45 SSE, FF 52 ESR, and FF 53 (patched to run with XomPie) all coexisting in relative peace.

    @Sampei.Nihira The major issue is Error: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing export function in an implicitly dependent module first, not the missing files ("question mark" inside a yellow circle); check for missing functions in XP's system files, like kernel32.dll; those files will be marked with a reddish square in the tree structure in the left side-bar; click the + signs where needed At least one other XP user has reported the inability to run that file, perhaps he could also investigate with DW and if a pattern is found and verified, perhaps the app's devs should be alerted their file doesn't run on ALL XP setups; just my 2 eurocents, ofc Buon Natale!

    for me, I just want a working browser and naming is unimportant to me. If just changing the names and no artwork works need to be done in short period (as I have no time working on artwork and I have no sense about audio-visual), then it can be done. As I have no idea what name to use, I'd create a poll here and let people to choose use names that Tobin given, or a name by other forum member suggested, and also give out a "No" option for reference. if these can be accepted by people, then it can be proceeded afterwards.

    You are kindly asked to check the validity of what you post ; the OP asked for a "theme" for his Serpent 52.9.0 copy and what you've linked to is a (lightweight) theme (previously known as persona) packaged in a Web Extension format, targeting at minimum Firefox 53.0; that WE persona won't even install in Serpent 55.0.0, because both UXP and Moebius do not support WE lightweight themes... Most unfortunately, there's currently a very limited choice for Personas compatible with Serpent 52.9.0: https://addons.basilisk-browser.org/personas/
