    ... Now you hush, "young" gentleman! Those people are already extremely p***ed that you, single-handedly, created the Vista Extended Kernel project, so much so that they fear their "support channels" will get overwhelmed by Vista users running their official builds: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?p=198116#p198116 As the saying goes, "No good deed goes unpunished" ...

    I'm not an expert on Open Source licensing either, but apparently someone here is going to have to become one... This whole business is ridiculous. I would prefer to see the great "dispute" settled as well, because it IS in everyone's best interests to NOT be fighting each other, BUT - NOT by simply giving in to the constant threats/intimidation coming down from "on high." I don't speak for anyone but myself, but if it were up to me I would not lift a finger to conform to any "demand" until some degree of mutual respect is established. The first step of which must include "them" putting a stop to the constant disparaging of the "XP (and Vista ) community" and "our" choices - as if anyone here needs "their" approval to use any given OS, or gives one iota what "they" think about our choice of that OS. That being said, I figured the "branding" problem would be simple enough.. just revert that particular change. While "they" will surely be very angry about it, in the end, (AS FAR AS I KNOW) they cannot force the change "retroactive" on already released code/versions/files. Even if they wanted to take the time and go through all of those old versions, and push out another update for each with the change, it would not erase what has already been made public, and is already covered under the "previous" existing license/redistribution conditions. These "private" repository issues are another aspect which we must figure out with regard to the licensing conditions. I see this "behavior" as simply an attempt to create more hassle for anyone who wishes to build the code for themselves.. which most certainly violates the "spirit" of Open Source, and may violate the actual licensing, depending on which licenses are applicable to different parts of the code. The MPL 2.0 (which to my knowledge governs the Firefox code that PM is developed from) contains some interesting specific statements that would seem to be relevant here: "All distribution of Covered Software in Source Code Form, including any Modifications that You create or to which You contribute, must be under the terms of this License." "You may not attempt to alter or restrict the recipients’ rights in the Source Code Form." "...Covered Software must also be made available in Source Code Form, as described in Section 3.1, and You must inform recipients of the Executable Form how they can obtain a copy of such Source Code Form by reasonable means in a timely manner..." "You may distribute such Executable Form under the terms of this License, or sublicense it under different terms, provided that the license for the Executable Form does not attempt to limit or alter the recipients’ rights in the Source Code Form under this License." ... so, I see it as a question of whether or not these statements are to be "understood" at face value. If so, then I'm not so certain that "private" repositories and "hoops to jump through" to obtain sources are not in direct violation of this.

    Well, technically we aren't using their branding anymore since they just abandoned what we're using now. We now have a different product to theirs with different branding, which is most of what they wanted. Though there may still be some sort of trademark attached to their old branding. And Serpent isn't resolved though I don't think they are too pleased about us brand leeches either way (either we piggyback on their current unofficial branding or simply seize/gift ourselves their old branding). And New Moon could still evoke memories of Pale Moon (for an unfortunate few anyway).

    Let me begin by thanking you for continuing to deliver updated builds of your browsers, despite the recent major hardware hardships... (pun intended! ) Starting with last weekend's New Moon 28 package (linked-to above) and including this weekend's latest NM28 offering, I've noticed that 3 compiled files, all previously associated with Serpent 52.9.0 builds, have somehow slipped into New Moon's main app directory; these files are: Accessible.tlb AccessibleMarshal.dll IA2Marshal.dll I browsed quickly your custom UXP branch and did not find any clues there as to why these 3 files now appear inside NM28's main appdir ; if it's any info, these 3 files also do not appear inside upstream official compilations of Pale Moon 28.13.0/29.0.0a6; but since our fork has deviated somewhat from upstream, that fact may or may not be relevant... Mentioned files, as pretty much expected, continue to reside inside Serpent 52.9.0's main appdir (as well as in upstream official Basilisk 52.9.2020.09.11 ) Now, as a test, I went along and deleted those 3 "errant" files and latest New Moon 28.10.2a1 32-bit (buildID=20200918232718) launches and runs fine here (Vista SP2 32-bit, build 6.0..6003) without them... It looks as if those files are generated via a first stage Serpent/UXP compilation and are then added, by mistake, with other compiled files that are common/shared with the New Moon 28/UXP compile/build (possibly to expedite compilation of both UXP browsers...); if that's by design (and may I note that this wasn't the case with the previous [now lost] building environment), perhaps it would be best to remove those 3 unneeded (for NM28) files post compilation and prior to packaging/uploading... https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/UXP/issues/1653 Clean up Windows widget code https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/UXP/commit/6f5cd8a [widget] Clean up Windows widget code some. Can you please elaborate a bit why upstream UXP#1653 was not merged? Would it have broken WinXP compatibility if it had? Being on Vista here (NT 6.0), could this have been handled slightly differently if it provides performance improvements on Vista+? (e.g. ifdef'd to load the code under Vista+ but not under XP?) Apologies if I'm asking something that can't be done... I'm really sorry to have to bring this up, but don't you expect "upstream" to hear about that? You are, at the end of the day, still building "unofficial" Pale Moon builds and upstream have modified that branding (which is their prerogative, it appears...). I won't pretend I understand fully the Open Source licensing schemes, but I smell (additional) trouble coming from upstream, this time from Moonchild himself With all said and done (and undone) in the past, I'd hate to witness any further escalation between "us" and "them", especially if it results in more restrictive action(s)/sanctions from upstream... What do others think on this? Finally, I don't use any of these forks myself, but out of pure (healthy) curiosity, what source do you actually use now to produce updated builds of? AFAIAA, upstream have moved to a private repository, so are you now just updating the platform (UXP) submodule/component, which is still public? Thanks for all your hard work and efforts , thanks in advance for any answers received... Best greetings

    Plenty of other people thought exactly the same! https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install/windows-10-2004-optimizationdefrag-bug/4c5498b9-04fe-41c9-8535-ed10313b6f33 This is off-topic of course, in this forum section, letalone this thread, but what was really bad is that they apparently acknowledged and fixed the issue in an insider build, but then still let the fault get through to the release version of Windows 10 2004! What was really bad was not so much that the automatic optimisation of drives was not having its status remembered so it was running unnecessarily, but it was that it was also misidentifying drive types, resulting in it trying to TRIM conventional hard drives (impossible) and actually defragmenting SSD drives, which is definitely a no-no! It's fixed now anyway, but I do wonder how many people had the lives of their SSD drives unnecessarily shortened by this.
  16. 2 points
    That's really terrible and they should receive a class action for damages for destroying peoples storage. Most SSDs should have a TBW (Terabytes Written) or similar guaranteed/expected lifespan statistic and usually can be viewed via any free SMART interrogator such as crystal diskinfo, victoria, etc, although some of the OEM drives don't always show all the stats. These can give some indication if the drive is getting worn prematurely, or experiencing high temps and can give the user a chance to backup before failure. Of course unexplained catastrophic controller or chip failure is just bad luck. We have all been there at times and it truly sucks having to piece everything back together from backups here and there or recreate it, and some things may be lost forever. Reads should not affect lifetime significantly, but every write counts with SSDs. So think about swapfile, logs, firefoxes' running state saves (timing can be altered in about:config), etc etc. An errant program can write massive amounts to the SSD and the user may be unaware. Use task manager with i/o read bytes and write bytes columns enabled to keep a check just in case. If high throughput, large/frequent dynamic temporary storage is unavoidable, consider the samsung SM range or Intel's business range with very high PTB write endurances.

    Figured it might come to that, I noticed the comment about unauthorized distribution in one of the files shortly after I uploaded it. It doesn't look like much more than an user agent spoofer for facebook.com. Let's see what happens when they go YouTube route...

    OK so, in addition to MPC-HC and Pot Player via 3DYD YTS I am now also able to stream YouTube videos without 3DYD in older versions of MPV, VLC, Osmo4 (GPAC), QMPlay2 and current/latest Mplayer Sherpya build from right click in both Opera 12 and Gecko Browsers. I've also made a quite fancy and useful GUI for Youtube-dl as it turned out I couldn't find any working properly on 9x (not any good one anyway). Coming soon, probably next week, as part of the Youtube-dl 4 98SE-ME Megapack (500MB). Screenies of the GUI for now:

    I saw that coming... While I do respect Pale Moon and its developers for maintaining possibly one of the last independent web browsers around (enough to have gifted the x64 versions of 28/likely 29 to Vista), I will also wear the Browser badge with pride. Most people use a webpage viewing application covered in Chrome, a few stragglers need an Explorer to guide them through the Internet, others live on the Edge, and some like roasted fox. But Browser is where I stand. It's just like the "no name" grocery brand, which does quite well here in Canada.

    So, you have Flash installed in your system, but not in the browser? Why keep it then? Just to fill a few MB on your drive? No, the most "dangerous" software to use on your PC is Windows10.

    Thunderbird 52.9.1 cannot work because the Yahoo + OAuth2 code was entered by Thunderbird 60. Also interesting is the use of the new version 5 of POP Peeper (email notifier) which allows OAuth2 authentication with your default browser. Pop Peeper 4.5.3 work with I.E.8. Yahoo authentication was possible. Because the Yahoo Mail web page can be reached with I.E.8. But other OAuth2 authentications, such as Gmail, are impossible because they don't work with I.E.8.

    @roytam1 FYI: The new sept. 12 version of IceApe-uxp does not work on my two systems (XP and Win7) and return the dialog "Couldn´t load XPCom". Thank you for your hard work Edit: in the IceApe-uxp sept. 12 zip archive mozsqlite3.dll is missing. If copying the missing dll from a previous version into the iceape-uxp folder all works well

    I'll remind people here that I'm not actually an authority on Google Chrome and Chromium derived browsers, having been from the very start a Mozilla Firefox user, first (2005-2008) on a WinXP desktop and then (2008-2018?) on this Vista laptop... This is to clarify that I haven't followed closely Chromium's development during that era... I've learned quite a few things from XP users of Chrome 49, and it's true that specific [old] version (officially the EoS one for XP/Vista) does rely on OS resources/libraries for secure connections (which involve both available TLS protocols and available cypher suites). Contrary to what Google (the No.1 enemy of the Vista OS, by far ) believed, WinVista != WinXP, so having a fully updated Vista SP2 OS with TLS 1.2 support will grant you more accessible websites using Chrome 49 on Vista, thanks to Vista supporting more cypher suites by default and, on top of that, having SNI support that WinXP lacks... But all this is probably a moot point already, because Chrome 49's rendering engine is antiquated by now... To conclude, yes, Chromium 49 can only go up-to TLS v1.2 on an updated Vista system (with KBs targeting WS2008 originally ) At some point further down its development, Chromium disengaged to a degree from OS libs where TLS support is concerned, so that Chromium 57/58, upon which Yandex Browser (YB) 17.4/17.6 builds, comes with bundled/native support for the TLS protocol. I haven't used YB 17.6 (portable) here for many months, having long ago switched, first to 360EE v11 (Chromium 69 based), then to 360EE v12 (Chromium 78 based) and currently testing (beta channel of) 360EE v13 (Chromium 86 based). YB 17.x has other significant shortcomings by now, affecting Google Web Store (GWS) support , but that is part of a future post about YB 17.x ... By default, YB 17.6 supports TLS 1.0+1.1+1.2, provided by its own (Chromium) libs (i.e. non-dependent on OS TLS support, kinda like Firefox); but there is latent TLS 1.3 support, too, which can be enabled via a browser flag; The problem is that YB 17.6 was released at a time when TLS 1.3 hadn't been finalised yet, so it only supports a TLS 1.3 draft preceding the final one (i.e. RFC8446) Testing on dedicated TLS testing sites you get mixed results, depending on whether the test site detects pre-final TLS 1.3 drafts or not; SSL Labs client test picks up pre-final TLS 1.3: ... but Browserleaks ... and pinterjann DO NOT! As a closing note, if you want to disable lower, deemed currently insecure, versions of TLS, you can launch YB via a shortcut containing the following flag: --ssl-version-min=tls1.2 or --ssl-version-min=tls1.1 if you want to disable just TLS 1.0 ...

    that's the accessibility libraries, official builds and my old builds used to have --disable-accessibility specified. I lost the build config and then it turns on that on compilation. yes it breaks XP support, for example, it loads DWM in link-time, which XP doesn't even have this DLL. same condition as hyperbola(i.e. no updates), as they aren't update their part, but UXP core still bring new function to them.

    Yes, I'm seeing the same thing on my installation of Google Chrome 49. I'll message the author and see what he says. It appears as if the necessary file is missing, but it could still be a compatibility issue I suppose.

    Hi I also know a few people who were on Windows 10 and had the same problem ... Windows 10 destroys the ssd very quickly in use. Microsoft is giving a fix for this problem. https://www.extremetech.com/computing/314335-fix-for-potential-ssd-damaging-bug-coming-in-windows-update https://www.techradar.com/news/windows-10-update-fixes-annoying-ssd-drive-issue. i prefer my old xp.

    Is there any non-UWP/DX12 software that really cannot run on W7? The only missing win32 API function that I've seen called is user32!SetCoalescableTimer by the Office 2019 installer and it should be trivial to add. Vegas Pro 17 says in its system requirements that it needs Windows 10 but the installer says that it requires Windows 7/8. The Whatsapp desktop application says that it needs Windows 8 but runs on 7. Probably just people taking W7 EOS too seriously, even though Windows 8 as a client OS had its EOS in 2016. Mind you, it's quite difficult to trick VMware installers (unless you can get the OS to effectively become NT 6.2, which may cause web browsers to freeze). So that Workstation 11/12 method should work.

    Just as a heads up, the saintly individual behind Facebook Purity has now produced an extension which will revert Facebook to the old design. https://revertsite.com/ It works a treat, on my old and new versions of Firefox anyway! It tells Facebook that it's an old browser which doesn't support the new layout, which is probably pretty much the same as using the Mac/Safari user agent string did. Of course it will only work while the code for the old layout is still actually available to use, which won't be forever, but it should buy a bit more time.

    Nice job with MailNews. I was unable to add the Yahoo IMAP account with Thunderbird 52.9.1, kept getting configuration errors. They're now forcing everyone to OAuth2 so you have to delete the old Yahoo account and setup a new one. MailNews worked like a charm up so I can keep using Yahoo with XP.

    Ye, same here. Just tried to understand what jeromescuggs did in his screenshot (he never responded in this thread) and found the solution on a little research. And I think everyone should be able to get the knowledge so I posted it.

    They replied by phone and the terms of recovering HDD and SSD are similar (of course some the process are different), and for SSD recovering includes 1TB external HDD for returning data. and for "recoverable" means the whole data that original device can hold that can be recovered in percentage > 50% will cost HK$3000, and for > 70% will cost HK$6800, in between them will be discounted. I'm still thinking about that since it is big money for the data recovery.

    I've attached RAR5 compressed files with lists of download links for all official updates for Vista 32-bit and 64-bit Post SP2 up to April 2017. Includes all language packs for Vista, IE9 and local Help update. Also included are Ultimate Extras, Optionals and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 / 4.52 with updates. Superseded updates are not included except for a few ones just to satisfy Windows Update. Hotfixes are not included, unless available through Windows Update. Someone please mirror them on Web Archive. ASAP. EDIT: Updated files with .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Language Packs. Installing System Updates: If you want to install a language pack, you must do it first, by downloading and running the language pack executable. 1) Download all files from Main_URLs.txt to the same folder. 2) Using WinRAR, sort files by type and unpack all .MSU files to the same folder, overwriting existing files. Then you may delete the .MSU files to save space. 3) Unpack the WindowsVistaSP2_x86_Installer.rar or WindowsVistaSP2_x64_Installer.rar (just batch files) to the same folder where you extracted the files. 4) Open a Command Prompt with Administrator privileges and switch to the folder where the update files are. 5) Run Main_Part1.bat, Main_Part2.bat and Main_Part3.bat. At the end of execution of every batch file, Windows will restart automatically. 6) Optionally you may install local copy of Help update (LangPacks_Help_URLs.txt) and the IE9 language pack (LangPacks_IE9_URLs.txt). PS: It'll take a while to install all 210+ updates. Installing .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 / 4.52 with updates: 1) Download all files from NDP35_45_URLs.txt to the same folder. 2) Unpack the WindowsVistaSP2_x86_Installer.rar or WindowsVistaSP2_x64_Installer.rar (just batch files) to the same folder where you extracted the files. 3) Open a Command Prompt with Administrator privileges and switch to the folder where the update files are. 4) Run NDP35_45_Install.bat, if needed Windows will restart automatically. 5) Optionally you may install a language pack (LangPacks_NDP35SP1_URLs.txt and LangPacks_NDP452_URLs.txt). Installing updates for optional features (only if you have installed IIS, IIS ASP, IIS FTP or Telnet from Program and Features Control Panel extension) Download all files from Features_URLs.txt and run the following .MSU packages if you have installed: IIS: KB4012373 IIS ASP: KB2124261 IIS FTP: KB975254 Telnet: KB960859 and KB3020393

    hard to tell. the changes between 20181222-ba81aaf07-xpmod and 20181229-83cd9661c-xpmod are minor: https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/UXP/compare/ba81aaf07...83cd9661c unless it is AV1 content (which is unlikely since AV1 decoding is super-heavy) since there was an update between these builds. not possible, because ffmpeg 3.4 knows only software decoding.

    ============================================================================== New on Mar 20, 2019: For Windows 7 users: Beware of the new KB4493132! Do hide it, it's just the 7EoS Nag!

KB2990214 for Windows 7 SPx and KB3044374 for Windows 8.1. KB3050265 for Windows 7 SP1 and KB3050267 for Windows 8.1. KB3065987 for Windows 7 SP1 and KB3065988 for Windows 8.1. KB3075851 for Windows 7 SP1 and KB3075853 for Windows 8.1 KB3083324 for Windows 7 SP1 and KB3083325 for Windows 8.1. KB3083710 for Windows 7 SP1 and KB3083711 for Windows 8.1. KB3102810 for Windows 7 SP1 and KB3102812 for Windows 8.1. KB3112343 for Windows 7 SP1 and KB3112336 for Windows 8.1. KB3135445 for Windows 7 SP1 and KB3135449 for Windows 8.1. KB3138612 for Windows 7 SP1 and KB3138615 for Windows 8.1. KB3192403 for Windows 7 SP1 and KB3192404 for Windows 8.1. While the others are intended for both Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.x, namely: KB2999226, KB3035583, KB3046480 and KB3068708 (which replaces KB3022345), KB3075249, KB3080149, KB3090045, KB3118401, KB3123862, KB3139929, KB3146449, KB3150513, KB3163589, KB3170735 and KB3173040. And there is, in addition, KB2977759, KB3021917 and KB3081954, just for Windows 7 SPx. and also KB3064683 and KB3072318, just for Windows 8.1, of course! -------------***************------------- This list intends to cover both Windows 7 and 8. Some of the updates listed are offered to either 7 or 8, while others are offered to both. This list is a work in progress, which tends to grow with time. My main intent here is just to keep all relevant info as together as possible, for easy reference. Of course, the idea for this sticky post came from NoelC's post I quoted at the top of this very post. -------------***************------------- At this point (Oct. 31, 2015), the task of keeping track of all of this has become complex, so I do recommend the aegis.cmd script by thepower from voat.co (findable here) as a handy tool, that helps both with the avoidance of the "upgrade" do Win 10 and with privacy issues, too. Thanks are due to epic, for first suggesting its use on post #273. After runnining aegis.cmd, the Windows Update is set to check/notify, but I always reset it to off, and check manually, from time to time. One must keep eyes wide open, because some of the updates keep being re-offered, too, and need to be re-hidden! -------------***************------------- Alphabetized list specific to the OS for more convenient checking (courtesy of bphlpt ): Windows 7 SP1 Windows 8.x KB2952664 KB2976978 x KB2977759 KB2999226 x KB2990214 KB3022345 x KB2999226 KB3035583 x KB3021917 KB3044374 xx KB3022345 KB3046480 x KB3035583 KB3050267 xx KB3046480 KB3064683 KB3050265 KB3065988 xx KB3065987 KB3068708 x KB3068708 KB 3072318 KB3075249 KB3075249 x KB3075851 KB3075853 xx KB3080149 KB3080149 x KB3081954 KB3083325 xx KB3083324 KB3083711 xx KB3083710 KB3090045 KB3090045 KB3102812 xx KB3102810 KB3112336 xx KB3112343 KB3118401 x KB3118401 KB3123862 x KB3123862 KB3135449 xx KB3135445 KB3138615 xx KB3138612 KB3139929 xx KB3139929 KB3146449 KB3146449 KB3150513 KB3150513 KB3163589 KB3163589 KB3170735 KB3170735 KB3173040 KB3173040 KB3192404 KB3192403 x == Windows 8.x xx == Windows 8.1

    Finally got around to installing the patches, all OK apart from, as has been said, KB4484454 which contains another XP incompatible MSO.DLL. All fine as usual after the old one was put back. Let's hope the next two batches of Office 2010 updates, which will be the last ones, are still signed with SHA1 so they will install on XP. It will be very annoying if they aren't when it's so near to EOS anyway!

    Yes, I would appreciate it too so it will be released when it is ready. Current status is that it does not work correctly yet. On the other side, I doubt that someone needs to upgrade to new builds immediately when it is released, especially when some needed software is not compatible with it.

    The site has ceased to open in Russia, with different providers in different cities. Connected through a foreign VPN, and found this topic. Is it really impossible to disable these blocks? At this rate, the whole world will soon be banned, and no one will be able to enter here.
