    @roytam1 It looks like you have now seen your own proof it works without SSE, but here is mine anyway, just in case you want to see. The browser is a bit sluggish, as expected, due to no real GPU and an old budget processor, but it does indeed work on this MMX-only Mendocino CPU.

    Hi RoyTam1, tested your Serpent 52 Non-SSE2 test build, It's working beautifully on my Pentium III 1.4GHz. Once I finish tweaking it I expect it to run even better. But even as of now, discord web (which, if you aren't familiar, is very bloated and slow, even a bit sluggish on my Core Duo ThinkPad) is quite usable on the PIII using that browser. It's truly amazing. I'd imagine you may find more optimizations to make, as the build is in it's infancy. Keep up the good work, dude!

    The task manager shows not only the memory consumption, but also virtual memory, the swap file. Therefore, applications can use a lot of virtual memory without consuming RAM.

    @Dave-H : A check of "cote.co.uk" on SSL Labs Server test page https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=www.cote.co.uk confirms what has already been reported; just scroll down to the Handshake Simulation section: ... and see that IE11 only works on Win10 ! As to why, I think I have some clues: I couldn't help noticing how that server was configured: Only TLS 1.2 version is enabled, and only 3 cipher suites for that protocol version: Now, IE11 uses the cipher suites available in the OS's "Microsoft Schannel Provider" library; however, different Windows versions support different sets of cipher suites: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/secauthn/cipher-suites-in-schannel If one checks the available suites on Win7: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/secauthn/tls-cipher-suites-in-windows-7 one cannot find any of the three cipher suites needed for connection to the server in question... OTOH, checking the available cipher suites on Win10 v1903: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/secauthn/tls-cipher-suites-in-windows-10-v1903 one can find the first preferred (by the server) cipher suite, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256, as available, hence the TLS 1.2 handshake succeeds and the site loads in IE11/Win10! However, I don't have answers as to why Chrome 49/WinXP[SP3] also succeeds, unless, of course, ProxyHTTPSProxy is used with it... BTW, Chrome 49 does open the site successfully here, Vista SP2 32-bit, but I do have installed WinServer 2008 updates that enable TLS 1.2 support: Perhaps Chrome 49 has native support for that cipher suite and only uses the Windows Store for certificates, NOT using Schannel like IE does (I'm sorry, my Chrome related knowledge is limited, have only been a Firefox fan from the start!) ... Cheers

    This night has been very productive. I have managed to make APZ work in 38 ESR, as well as discovering that layers.low-precision-buffer hurts performance if enabled. The 52 ESR version has been set in stone, with the workaround I have applied (apz.desktop.enabled set to true but without enabling apz.drag.enabled as it causes massive lag on 52 ESR). Due to the rendering problems I had when I enabled E10S, that will be scrapped and so, I will no longer develop a separate version for New Moon 28. If the user wants E10S, then he should enable it manually. It's a matter of time before I release the new version. I just need to do some minor test to check if the new parameters stick, otherwise I'll move those to the Enforcer. EDIT: The release of the new version has been postponed again due to bugs found in the 45 ESR version.

    Fellow Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit user here ; on Vista, there seems to be a conflict/incompatibility between the native WMF h264 decoder (not present in XP) and certain gif formats, like the Twitter ones ; the ffmpeg-based h264 decoder present inside @roytam1 's custom-patched ffvpx library is still capable of rendering those gifs though, but has a lower value (in the preferred order) and is thus not used by default on Vista (while it is on XP, which lacks WMF); so, your issue is Vista specific... To view such Twitter gifs on Vista, temporarily set (in about:config) media.wmf.enabled to false and reload the twitter page; the gif should play now (because ffvpx takes over...) NB: I'd advise against making this a permanent pref change, as the WMF framework is better suited for media playback integration with UXP browsers under Vista (e.g., if your gfx card supports hardware (i.e. GPU) h264 decoding, it can make use of that, while ffvpx always uses software (i.e. CPU) decoding) ! Best regards

    Warning to users of Adobe's "Flash" plug-in: I have discovered that the 52 ESR version of the UOC Patch sets two preferences that interfere with Flash: privacy.resistFingerprinting dom.ipc.plugins.asyncdrawing.enabled #1 is more serious. For some reason, it prevents Flash from working at all. Luckily, it also has the easiest workaround: set it back to false, or remove the line enabling it from the UOC_Patch_52.js file; instead, use an extension (I use "Canvas Defender" but there are several others) to resist canvas fingerprinting. #2 may, or may not, affect your system. To test, first disable the above preference, then go to https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about/. If both the Flash animation and your currently installed Flash version appear, you're fine and can leave this preference set to true. If the page doesn't work properly, you'll have to set this preference to false also. Unfortunately I know of no workaround to retain its function if you have to turn it off. Edit: It turns out that privacy.resistFingerprinting implicitly does lots of things "behind the scenes". Some of these changes, such as user agent overrides, could cause Web sites to malfunction or otherwise affect usability. Luckily, most of the changes didn't land until FF 55 (which won't run on XP) or later FF versions (but Serpent 55 may include some of them). Still, I think it would be best to remove this preference from the UOC Patch. Edit 2: The troublesome privacy.resistFingerprinting also appears in the FF 45 version of the UOC Patch, but that preference doesn't do as much in that version, so it may not cause trouble with Flash there. I haven't tested FF 45 with the UOC Patch and Flash. Edit 3: Found one more. This one's more obscure, but I'm posting it anyway, just in case anyone runs across it. The UOC Patch sets pref apz.allow_zooming, which conflicts with the Multi-Account Containers add-on. That add-on is the main reason I switched to Serpent 55, so my own customized version of the UOC Patch now omits privacy.resistFingerprinting and apz.allow_zooming, and sets dom.ipc.plugins.asyncdrawing.enabled to false to ensure Flash always works. Hopefully I now have everything working again!

    That's good; your last post had me worried! My yellow shield was there this AM with the three Office 2010 updates. Since manual installation still works, here are links to their support pages: https://support.microsoft.com/kb/4484164 https://support.microsoft.com/kb/4484127 https://support.microsoft.com/kb/4484160 You can go to each support page, scroll down to "Option 3: Microsoft Download Center," and find links to the standalone installers for both 32- and 64-bit versions of Office 2010. (I would assume the vast majority of folks have 32-bit systems, but just in case....)

    This happened to me too. If I remember correctly, what it ended up doing was adding the contribution amount to my existing login. So instead of $5 total donated it shows up as $10 kind of thing. I think this worked out better, because the number of licenses was more for $10 than it was for 2 x $5.

    Images often downloaded separately from the email that contains them because they're so large. Outlook uses IE to download these images. If IE can't download an image you'll get the red X, but there are lots of reasons IE might not be able to download from a particular server besides a certificate problem. For example, there may not be a TLS cipher that both the server and IE support. You may find that installing @heinoganda's version of ProxHTTPSProxyMII will resolve many of those download failures.

    I personally would like to see a build of K-Meleon 1.5.x with TLS 1.2 support, or a build of RZ browser (Firefox Community Edition) 3.6.x. According to ssllabs.com, 63.4% of websites serveyed still have TLS 1.0 enabled (which is required for older K-Meleon, Seamonkey, and Firefox based web browsers). https://www.ssllabs.com/ssl-pulse/ Here is a RetroZilla MSFN forum that would be very interesting for these older browsers.

For a long time. Sorry I know hardly anything about proxies, but your problem seems completely independant from browsers. My non-expert impression: the prob is only your systemwide, independant zenmate APP, which connects to its own server directly. Obviously your version is just too old, if it contains only outdated certs/ciphers. Or perhaps it uses the very old ciphers of the system. But the used browsers don't matter, since they get the data only afterwards. After the app has already downloaded them from its own server, using a direct connection and it's own outdated ciphers. Roytam's fresh builds certainly contain modern ciphers. You could try disabling that global app and connect with a normal browser proxy directly to the zenmate server, if knowing the necessary connection data, probably different for each fake country. Zenmate offers own browser addons, but only in WebExt type. For browsers using only 'legacy' power addons, a general proxy addon should work too, if IP etc is known. K-Meleon has a proxy function already built in, configuration in F2>Network/Performance>Proxy

    Roger that. I have tested the build and it works wonderfully on the RDD. I still haven't UOC'ed the browser yet, but I will once the new rewrite for 45 ESR SSE is done. If the Patch works as it should and if the extensions I use don't bog Serpent down, I think I might have found a replacement web browser for the RDD... 😏

    Well, SM 2.49.5 (last for XP) doesn't, anyway. You either have to install Adobe Primetime or copy some DLL's from one of @roytam1 browsers. We had a bit of an adventure trying to figure this out in the original (now closed) thread, but we eventually did figure it out, and we now have two ways to play HTML5 videos in SM 2.49.5. Note: That only applies to Windows XP. On newer Windows versions SM 2.49.5 can use WMF to play HTML5 videos, but XP lacks WMF.

    You may want to get @roytam1's Serpent 52 from the XP forum, and also use @heinoganda's Cert_Updater_v1.6 to give XP the latest security certificates.

    As long as the distorted audio can always be fixed with a simple user agent change, I see no reason to retain Adobe Primetime support in Serpent. (I'll add the above user agent to myuseragents.js.) Does anyone know of a site with distorted audio that can't be fixed with a different user agent? (If so, that would be a reason to restore Primetime support.)

    In Windows 7 decoding works good for me with media.wmf.enabled to true but in Windows XP, where I sometimes go to use older software CPU decoding doesn't cut it on certain sites like Twitter. But I just finally learned a little trick to force lower resolution by adding a mobile tag in the url, for example, https://twitter.com/FireTheFoxxo/status/1196668801489739777 to this: https://mobile.twitter.com/FireTheFoxxo/status/1196668801489739777 Twitter videos are now at least bearable in XP without having to download them. Unless I'm missing it it's apparently beyond the capability of the "Twitter team" to provide resolution options on their player the way youtube and others do. Edit: you can also force mobile twitter by changing the UA to an older browser like Firefox 3.0 but if you're like me and have the UA set in about:config then adding the mobile tag to watch videos is another option.

    IIRC, the last Java version with an installer that runs on XP was 8u151/8u152. But any Java version prior to the latest (8u231 as noted above) will trigger Mozilla's security warning. To get the latest version installed on XP, see these posts: BTW if you put those commands into a .bat or .cmd file don't forget to double all the % characters in the for command. You may also want to use a capital F vs. a lowercase f.

    Sorry, by EOS I meant end of sale... which is the "Extended" period that included OEM Facilitated Downgrade Rights (Buy Win 10, get Win 7 installed). I do not remember exactly how long ago it was, I wanted to say 2 years but that seems to be too long.

    @Tangy, @caliber, Look to change some rule in your extensions, and look to not block javascript entirely... First, to test, disable your JavaScript extension and other defenses: Test your JavaScript Browser Information by browserleaks.com: https://browserleaks.com/javascript JavaScript Inspector Know what JavaScript reveals about your browser: https://webbrowsertools.com/javascript/#javascript-uri Then I don't have problems with youtube.com home page, all videos are here and I could play them all.

    Imagine that it wants some parameters on command line. How would you pass them to it? You know like *any* command line tool that expects parameters you could open a command prompt, navigate to the directorywhere the .exe is and then type on the command line the name of the .exe, in this case WINXPPAE,EXE and press [ENTER]. Maybe then it won't close in half a second ... jaclaz

With site-UA: > it has no effect, the problem persists Most likely either: - the page contains elements from other domains too, which must be tweaked too - or you have a useragent addon installed which disabled the native UA-system, but this can easily be tested

    will give a try to that patch which I was unaware of If you want another user friendly patch, the following one with a single click it's done. the best thing is that is doesn't ''destroy'' your system files so you can quickly uninstall it in case your system doesn't run properly.

    It is always worth the five minutes it takes to try and change the major/minor OS in the executable. A number of executables are perfectly fine running in XP BUT they are compiled with a "default" setting targeting 6 (Vista). This results in the error "This is not a valid Win32 application". Get CFF explorer: https://ntcore.com/?page_id=388 Open with it the (copy of the) executable and select "Optional Header". Then change: MajorOperatingSystemVersion to 5 MinorOperatingSystemVersion to 1 MajorSubsystemVersion to 5 MinorSubsystemVersion to 1 and save. No idea if this applies specifically to Inno Setup executables, though. jaclaz

    https://www.cote.co.uk/ Hehe - LOL!! Am delighted to report that page OPENS in Win98 with roytams old K-Meleon-Goanna74! xD (this is not even KM76, but 74 with engine of Palemoon26/Fox24) And even with all my blocks up, incl blocked global javascript, which means the page looks empty but it does load the source, gets the page title, shows NO security errors, and a mini-content shows up when simply killing stylesheets. And with my usual UA of fake IE7. To avoid misunderstandings, that does NOT mean the page were usable that way, no menus nor FAQ page etc. are displayed, am merely getting a few links to facebook+instagram and phone numbers. It just means the access is not blocked completely. The page is chock full with all sorts of scripts, with interesting source code like using xxx.WRITE (doc.write is blocked at least since FF38, but may be contained due to my old useragent), or html tags "@onclick" Just meaning that pretty much rules out any required modern features or permissions as culprits for the completely denied access. Still suspect the certs, but if true, that makes me wonder if Iron has some embedded ones too? Or (no idea) if weak certs are not disabled in whole system, only by browsers?

    Yes, I tested it with the latest PM 28, and it works! E10s remains disabled even with the "standard" FF 52 version of the patch. Thanks! So, the separate NM28 version of the patch is no longer needed.

    To curb the error-message that you have to cancel or what are you referring to? We already know the current build of Glass8 works fine on 1909, there's just this error message you have to click away because the build isn't whitelisted.

    We all knew this day would come. M$ has really been working overtime this year, killing any old OS features they possibly can. Early in the year they went after XP with a vengeance; now they're doing the same to Win 7. But there's a silver lining: I've read good things about EPG123. The Schedules Direct guide is from Gracenote, which supplies guide data for Zap2It.com and used to supply guide data for WMC before M$ switched to Rovi (which later bought Tivo and took the Tivo name for the merged company). The software is free but (as you noted) the Schedules Direct subscription isn't. The subscription is only $25/year though; a lot less than Tivo (unless you get a Tivo with a "lifetime" subscription), and I've read that you get a 21-day guide for your money; a nice improvement over the 12-day (at best) M$-provided guide.
