    I think @VistaLover has a point, here. Changing both app.support.* strings to default straight here to this thread on MSFN is easy to do and might be a good 1st step. This @roytam1 might implement already in his next installment of the compiled versions of all browsers he's providing modded versions for XP. It's much simpler than rebranding, uncontroversial and breaks nothing, while being an incontrovertible proof something is actually being done to proactively prevent people from going to PM forums for support.

    uB0-legacy has just been updated to version; those without uB0 updater installed, should download and install manually: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/releases/tag/firefox-legacy- Also, latest NM28-compatible language-packs have been (recently) updated to v28.6.0_RC2 : https://github.com/JustOff/pale-moon-localization/releases/tag/28.6.0_RC2

    In my St 52 copy (dated 2019.04.19), app.support.baseURL still points to Mozilla! So it seems the default was only changed in PM/NM. We can still change it (in both versions), along with browser.feedback.URL in NM (app.feedback.baseURL in St), which is opened when the user clicks Help / Submit feedback and currently points to the PM forums in both browsers. And as suggested long ago, app.releaseNotesURL should point to http://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/search/label/browser vs. the Palemoon.org release notes. That's only three prefs per browser, but would clean up the Help menu and reduce the number of unwelcome support requests going to the PM forums. I believe all these defaults are buried somewhere in <install dir>\browser\omni.ja. It might take a bit of searching to find & fix them all; an easier approach might be to override them by putting a new .js file in <install dir>\defaults\pref. Oops: Discovered a minor wrinkle with changing app.support.BaseURL: Help / Keyboard Shortcuts no longer works So it might be best to just revert to Mozilla for that pref. So the final prefs I ended up with are: app.feedback.baseURL;https://msfn.org/board/topic/177125-my-build-of-new-moon-temp-name-aka-pale-moon-fork-targetting-xp/?do=getNewComment app.releaseNotesURL;http://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/search/label/browser app.support.baseURL;https://support.mozilla.org/1/firefox/%VERSION%/%OS%/%LOCALE%/ (change app.feedback.baseURL to browser.feedback.URL for NM)

    Umm, those are cumulative 2015/2017/2019 redistributables, they don't mean new programs will work under XP. Invoking non existing API's in other DLLs is still a thing...

    I too once suggested changing the names of the .exe files, but it turns out that requires too many other changes; so I think now we're only talking about changing the names of the .7z files on @roytam1's page, some default prefs (so various links would point to Web pages controlled by @roytam1 vs. MCP), the displayed names, and the logos. The .exe file names would remain the same, and the other changes shouldn't affect add-on compatibility. It is a lot of work in total, though - as @Sampei.Nihira noted, there are several Help menu links to fix as well - and the work is probably best suited to a Web designer, which I am not. I've already suggested names (Titan; Apophis) and could probably even create logos, but not all the necessary Web pages based around them - at least not if you want them to look decent! The benefit to be gained depends on how likely Matt or MCP is to take drastic action (such as making PM/Basilisk closed-source, thus cutting us off from all future enhancements) next time they think @roytam1 is to blame for unwelcome New Moon/Serpent support requests. Rebranding won't end those unwelcome requests, but it would give @roytam1 a good defense against their likely future complaints.

    Why not also change some HELP entries? ____________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________ I have to disconnect, I don't have time to find the string in about: config related to the "Help" I'm sure some MSFN members will complete the missing puzzle.

    I still have a copy of the 5/22 version that runs on XP. I'm uploading a copy here. I tried renaming the "hostlist.txt" file from the new version to "top100.txt," as used in the old version. Surprisingly, it wouldn't run with the new file! So I surmised the old version only allows 100 host names in "top100.txt," and split "hostlist.txt" into two files with 100 entries each. That worked. Whichever file is named "top100.txt" is used. You just have to run it, rename the "top100" files, and run it again. BTW, no alert on Amazon or Paypal with this version. (But I know alerts work with this version, from my earlier experiment with ProxHTTPSProxyMII.) Also, although you can't resize the window, you can sort by any column by clicking the header. qmc.7z

    Found this on reddit for those who dislike as much as me the new Google search when javascript is disabled. Just change the user string to this to get the old one back : Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:3.0) Firefox/3.0 Works good in UXP (for now) and also tested in 60esr. Added as a separate override for google and all seems well so far: general.useragent.override.google.com

    isn't it faster to just open netfx_x64full.exe? I mean is there any benefit doing it this way? Thanks

    WPS Office 2019 works on Vista, so status is - ongoing. FineReader 14 (latest for now) - works on Vista, if unofficial portable version used. Nero 2019 works on Vista, if unofficial repacked version used. OpenVPN v. 2.4.6-I602 is the last version of software, that works correctly on my Vista. Version 2.4.7 brings errors, and connection is not establishing. The last snapshot of Vivaldi browser, that runs on Vista is v. 1.1.443.3. PROMT 18 is the last version of software for Vista. Maybe, it's possible to run PROMT 19, but I could not do it yet. SuperTuxKart 1.0.0 - fresh version of this game is still possible to run on Vista
