    I'm far from sure about that. He sure wants us out of his forum, but I'm quite OK with that. I'd not like having him here either. But I doubt he'd go the extra lenght of actually inserting code to actually prevent his browsers from running on either Vista or XP. He's taken out code intended to enable that, because he sees it as bloat, of course. But adding code to forestall XP/Vista use would be adding bloat, which contradicts his slim-and-mean optimized code philosophy, IMO. Now, if people, like @Dibya, keeps on nagging him, that might change...

    Hey guys, I put together an installer for Roy's browsers. It checks a file on my server to see the latest version (keeping that updated shouldn't be an issue for me) and then it downloads the latest browser version from roys site and installs it. Currently it supports Basilisk (x86 and x64), and New Moon (x86 and x64). Tested OSes with the installer include XP and Vista (both x86 and x64 editions) Other builds are not currently supported due to the sometimes irregular build interval http://i430vx.strangled.net/files/XP/RoyTam Browser Installer.exe If you find any bugs, LMK Thanks for @WinClient5270 for noticing that you must have the visual basic runtime installed first for the installer to work. (Install VC Redist 2008 from Microsoft)

    ... Then get yourself educated! ... and there's no need to "scream" with bold capitals In fact, you should care who that person is: He's the "right hand", so to speak - no insult intended to left-handed people , of Moonchild himself, an integral part of Moonchild Productions, the dev team behind the UXP platform and all the applications built on it: Pale Moon 28 [New Moon 28.x.xa1], Basilisk 52 [Serpent 52.9.0] and Matt A. Tobin's most recent offerings, Interlink [Mail News] and Borealis Navigator [BorealisXP]... Matt A. Tobin contributes a lot of code to the UXP repo, all this code will end up virtually unchanged inside @roytam1's XP/Vista compatible forks... He's infamous for harbouring a strong aversion to Windows XP (and Windows Vista) and being generally extremely hostile to fans/users of these OSes; and make no mistake: he'll go the extra mile to make sure his code is NOT compatible with said OSes, making Roy's hard work even harder ... So yes, the subject of "Matt Tobin" is sort of relevant to this thread... It seems my previous detailed reply to you has fallen onto deaf ears (or shut eyes, to be precise...); Roytam's task is not to rewrite the Pale Moon code committed by the Moonchild Productions team to accommodate a specific user's personal needs, he has only reverted those bits of code that prevent it from compiling and successfully running on XP+Vista OSes, period... Had you bothered to check my link to UPX PR #874, you would have noticed that Matt A. Tobin had nothing to do with the "tab-audio-indicator" code that you're implying and you feel strongly vexed about; this PR was submitted by @FranklinDM, another dev in their team... We haven't yet witnessed in this thread other NM28 users complaining about the issue affecting your setup(s), so, as of now, it appears to be only manifesting itself on your systems; worse yet, you haven't produced a list of system specifics and detailed reproduction steps so as to facilitate troubleshooting of your issue... Moonchild code targets "recent" Oses (Win7+) and "recent" hardware (e.g. SSE2+ capable CPU), so if your system is under-resourced it would not run NM28 properly... In closing, if "rebuild NM28 without the new feature" is what you actually want, then, again, I have provided the links for that: 1. Clone the UXP repo 2. Revert PR #874 commits 3. Apply latest UXP patch by Roytam1 4. Provided you have a suitable building environment set up (Win7SP1+ 64-bit with 12+GB RAM, Visual Studio 2015+,etc. ), build from modified source; I am certain that @roytam1 would be willing to guide you through, that is if his spare time permits him to... So, no more moaning on your side, please...

    Although this could go in the "browsers" thread, I didn't want this to get buried in the many pages of that thread. After some detective work, I've located Firefox 52.9.1 ESR buried on Mozilla's servers and confirmed it works on Windows XP. The 52.9.0 version is dated 25-JUN-2018 while the 52.9.1 version is dated 06-SEP-2018. The links are https://download-origin.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-esr52-win32/1536215521/firefox-52.9.1.en-US.win32.installer.exe and alternate link is https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-esr52-win32/1536215521/firefox-52.9.1.en-US.win32.installer.exe. I've also added it to my FTP: http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/firefox-52.9.1.en-US.win32.installer.exe I'm not sure why Mozilla didn't make this release public, but ENJOY! Note that I don't use XP 64 bit but I would expect the same results.

    @VistaLover Kind and helpful people like you make this forum warmer and inviting to visit more frequently. Nasty egoboosters having fun trampling over innocent others make forums icy and hostile. Keep your 'longwinded' postings coming please. Always very valuable and interesting! Although I usually don't react, but appreciate them, very much :)

    Notice: "Serpent", "New Moon", "MailNews" are generic debranded names and they are subject to change in the future. Archive directory names and archive filenames will only be changed once generic debranded names are not used in the future. Latest changelog is available here as well: http://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/search/label/browser Serpent/UXP browser (MCP reforked 52ESR as new base), and NM28XP releases: Binaries are moved to here: (I'm lazy to edit all previous posts) https://o.rths.cf/palemoon/?sort=date&order=desc BOC related binaries: Binary list: https://o.rths.cf/boc-uxp/?sort=date&order=desc FAQ: Q: Having audio distorted when watching Twitter/etc.? A: Please try turning on "Firefox compatibility" in options dialog or either "general.useragent.compatMode = 2" or "general.useragent.compatMode.firefox = true" in about:config and reload the page. Q: Can't play H264 clips? (for PM27/KM76) A: Download following packages for your browser edition(32bit/64bit) and extract DLLs to same place as palemoon.exe lives. 32bit LAV dlls are in separated package (extracted from K-Lite codec pack 13.5.5) https://o.rths.cf/palemoon/lav.7z Just in case if you have an older processor which has no SSE instruction set support: 32bit NoSSE (ffmpeg 3.1.1 lite build) https://o.rths.cf/palemoon/lav-dll-lite-mmx.7z 32bit No ASM (ffmpeg 3.1.1 lite build, if build above doesn't work on your processor) https://o.rths.cf/palemoon/lav-dll-lite-noasm.7z 64bit LAV dlls are in separated package (LAV Filters 64bit 0.70.2) https://o.rths.cf/palemoon/lav64.7z Q: AV1 Support?

    I have gathered a large variety of updates, tweaks, other software / addons for XP x64 / 2k3 x64; of which I believe will or can be useful depending on the users needs. Now, I can't guarantee that I have all the updates are here but, I can at least offer what I have managed to collect. I hope that this collection helps some of you from at least having to hunt down some updates / software yourself. I have updates ranging from 2014 & lower, plus 2015 & 2017 along with some other enhancements, tweaks, and software. To clarify, I am absolutely not responsible for damages or incorrect usage of software / updates from this archive. PLEASE be careful & always make backups before proceeding with anything! Good luck!

    Well, it's that time of the month again, and only a year away from Vista's true EoL (or EoS, as @dencorso has said about XP, though not sure if it applies to Vista as well)... And as usual, I recommend waiting at least a week before any of these, because we never know, if Microsoft won't pull any of these updates and upload it (or even more than one of them) again in a couple days. So, without further ado, let's finally get to what you all have come here for: KB4480968 - Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows Server 2008 - 32-bit | 64-bit KB4480957 - Security Only Quality Update for Windows Server 2008 - 32-bit | 64-bit KB4480965 - Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 9 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit KB4481486 - Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0, 4.5.2, 4.6/4.6.1 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit and 64-bit update catalog link KB4480062 - Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit KB4480059 - Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 4.5.2 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit KB4480055 - Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 4.6/4.6.1 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit KB4481487 - Security Only Update for .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0, 4.5.2, 4.6/4.6.1 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit and 64-bit MS update catalog link KB4480084 - Security Only Update for .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 for Windows Server 2008 - 32-bit | 64-bit KB4480076 - Security Only Update for .NET Framework 4.5.2 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit KB4480072 - Security Only Update for .NET Framework 4.6/4.6.1 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit Extra/optional update: KB4487354 - Update for Windows Server 2008 SP2 for x84/x64 based Systems - 32-bit | 64-bit I think that's all for this month (for now at least), except 2 updates for Itanium based systems only, but I don't think it's necessary to post them here. I also hope you all will like this new way of posting lists of updates which are available for Vista, and which I will try to use from now on. I also apologize for no direct links to bigger .net rollups but direct downloads of those are sadly unavailable. Added KB4487354, thanks to @mike_shupp for finding it.

    The end of official support doesn’t render the operating system unusable. As long as you’re connected to the Internet behind a router with a firewall, and browsing the internet responsibly on an updated browser, there is no reason why you can’t continue using XP without an issue. I have no intention of giving it up any time soon.

    Stop nagging. It won't make things any faster, but does annoy.

    I'm working on the solution and the implementation to avoid similar malfunction in the future.

    Here's how it went: Pale Moon 27 (Tycho platform) did support Vista (and higher), but not XP; the New Moon 27 fork was created by @roytam1 to restore WinXP support; I can assure you that NM27 runs on Vista just as good (possibly better) as it does on WinXP... Then Moonchild Productions created Pale Moon 28, built on the UXP platform; UXP forked MozillaESR 52, which did support both XP+Vista; but Moonchild Productions removed both these OSes from their forked platform, so that UXP now supports Win7+. To the rescue came, again, @roytam1 , who restored support in UXP for BOTH WinXP and Vista; in fact, New Moon 28 and Serpent 52.9.0 are almost the only browser choices for Vista users nowadays, browsers which are under continued development and not EOL'd... And when have I disputed that? I merely said: Unless numerous other members (on XP/Vista/whatever) come forth here with the same affliction as yours, i.e. severe performance degradation of New Moon 28 as the result of the ported (from Australis) audio-tab-icon enhancement, let's, for the sake of argument, assume that, for the time being, what you're experiencing has to somehow do with your own setup(s). For the record, the last NM28 build without the feature was (x86): palemoon-28.2.0a1.win32-git-20181117-c94825c86-xpmod.7z and this feature/enhancement was introduced first in (x86): palemoon-28.2.0a1.win32-git-20181124-b37e8f87c-xpmod.7z (and is still present in latest build...); so people reading this should test and report back, if this is to be troubleshot... Calm down, please ! You have to understand first that the New Moon 28 builds are provided by @roytam1 as a pure courtesy to WinXP and Vista users and under no circumstances is he any part of the decision making with regards to browser features that get implemented (or not!); the entire browser code is being modified upstream by the Moonchild dev team, @roytam1 only intervenes to the extent of making that code successfully compile and run on XP+, NOTHING MORE... This has been explained before in this thread, but I suspect its sheer size has now become a deterrent for new members to read it... If you have a gripe about this feature, you should've directed your frustration over at Moonchild et company, not at Roy; but Moonchild only support "new" Win OSes (Win7+) and "new" hardware, so even that is a moot point... To re-iterate, you may indeed have a genuine issue on your setup, but: 1. It's wrong to generalise as if every NM28 user on every possible configuration has that same issue (and issue directives/guidelines as to what people should or shouldn't install in their browsers)... 2. Even if you're the only one with the problem, you'd have to provide ample details and reproduction steps to the current maintainer so he's in a position to first reproduce and, second, hopefully offer you some fixes for it... FYI, the code in the upstream repo that implemented this enhancement you detest is covered in UXP Pull Request #874: https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/UXP/pull/874 You'll find there all links to individual commits... ======================== OT: Maybe it's my own false sense, but to me you're coming off as a tad aggressive in your last two posts (of a total of 3); this isn't very becoming of "new" members, especially when you expect feedback/help from other members here - we are all volunteers and, of course, no one is perfect, but we do try our best to help (at least I do... ).

    What a joke reddit.com/r/firefox/ has become. Besides the usual quantum suckups where no criticism is tolerated for anyone who even hints at still using an older version there's an auto moderator that chimes in to spank the poster. They are scolded to immediately upgrade to a newer, safer, warmer version complete with Alice in Wonderland coloring books before the big bad security bogeyman gets ya. Apparently Mozilla thinks we're all a bunch of little children who need their constant hand holding to save us from ourselves. Not even Microsoft is that much of a nanny.
