    Yes, that is one of my pet general forum use dislikes: when somebody asks a question, gets help and then later posts some variation on:- without actually explaining exactly how they resolved the problem. So many times you look for answer to a particular question online and find a thread in some long dead or now barely used forum which is about just what you wanted to know and the thread is abruptly ended by a post like that. Frustrating and a wee bit selfish.

    Well, that is a pet peeve of mine, Trusted Installer is not as much a security concept as a limiting of freedom In the good ol'times of NT and 2000 "pro's" (which implied network, shared pc's etc, AND often an IT supervision) had a all in all "sound" security/access implementation, and the "normal users" (your home PC and laptop, probably never connected to a network) had a simplified model with 9x/Me, With XP, it was forced down the throat of common users a whole load of access/permisisions and what not that simply made no sense. With the (stupid) Vista and later there were not that many (or good) improvements (in the sense of actual increase in security in practice), as each and every (stupid) additional roadblock has been - before or later - worked around, the only effects were to make the life of users (and in some cases of developers a little more miserable). And if you would tell us which among the various proposed solutions/workarounds you used successffully that would maybe be useful to someone else with the same or similar issue. jaclaz

    You need to add the Iceape-UXP specific application id inside the extension's install.rdf file: <!-- Iceape-UXP --> <em:targetApplication> <Description> <em:id>{9184b6fe-4a5c-484d-8b4b-efbfccbfb514}</em:id> <em:minVersion>27.0</em:minVersion> <em:maxVersion>52.*</em:maxVersion> </Description> </em:targetApplication> Hyperbola provide an Iceape-UXP compatible fork of uB0-legacy, which they call uBlock Origin-Libre; unfortunately, it's only officially installed via their Package Manager; you can have a look at their (limited) set of extensions below: https://wiki.hyperbola.info/doku.php?id=en:project:iceweasel-uxp_addons As a workaround to the missing Package Manager, you can navigate to https://www.hyperbola.info/packages/community/any/iceweasel-uxp-ublock-origin-legacy/ and download the package via the "Download From Mirror" link; that will get you file iceweasel-uxp-ublock-origin-legacy- Extract repeatedly with 7-zip and inside the ".\usr\lib\iceweasel-uxp\browser\extensions\" directory you'll find the needed .XPI file; install that manually on the iceape-uxp suite via drag-n-drop...

    Win 2k is the best OS so far. Too bad it can't run DirectX 11 for newer games.

    Thanks for the solutions. I got it to work in the end.

    I've been using Windows 2000 Professional for several months now as my primary OS now and it works great. With kernel modifications, I even have Office 2007 working seamlessly. The problem is I really need Office 2010, the best and really the oldest usable version of Office, and I've been getting away with running it in a Server 2003 VM until now. But that adds overhead. Still, W2K is incredibly stable and fast. So if people can use W2K 20 years after it was released, then W7 should be at least as usable ten years from now, probably still more usable. At this point, I'm considering using Windows 7 and/or Windows Vista Ultimate as a secondary OS to handle things like Office 2010, which Windows 2000 is just not ideal for. That way, Windows 10 can be completely avoided, since Vista and 7 are modern enough to do what I can't do in Windows 2000 (which is really not a lot).

    https://www.hsbc.com.cn/ works now in Serpent 52(20200208). No need to dig I think, just for information and closing an issue.

    It's covered in more detail at @roytam1's original (now locked) thread, but basically: MCP forked Basilisk 55 from an early alpha version of Firefox 53, then applied some commits from FF 54 and 55; hence the "55." At that point, MCP gave up development but @roytam1 picked it back up as Serpent 55. He occasionally posts a new version with updated security and other fixes. MCP forked Basilisk 52 from FF 52.9 ESR and still maintains it. @roytam1 picked it up as Serpent 52 and typically applies their updates weekly. It has diverged slightly from MCP's Basilisk (mostly to retain features removed by MCP but still used by some folks here) but is still very similar to Basilisk. Serpent 55 has slightly better compatibility with new "WebEx" add-ons than Serpent 52, because 55 was forked from a newer FF version. OTOH Serpent 52 has slightly better support for modern .CSS and .JS due to continuing work by MCP. But their "look and feel" is very similar.
