  1. Is it possible in the future to have a Start button directly to the left of pinned apps with "Centered task icons" tweak? (as in W11 taskbar)

  2. Hi After several tests, the last version of Newmoon 27 that works without problem is this one: "palemoon-27.10.0.win32-git-20211002-2131e4376-xpmod.7z" All the following have a problem with the Mozjs.dll module. just test with the msfn.org website ...

  3. I personally want to stay with XP for rest of my life even if it sounds stupid. I had tried Win 7 before one time in my life and even after messing around for several days trying various "classic XP shells/themes" to try getting it to look and feel like XP as close as possible, it still wasn't perfect, especially how much "different" windows explorer is - the whole interface as a whole. I just plain did not like it at all. I do not have any real technical problems or issues with XP to this day aside from "sometimes" getting a crash or BSOD here or there once in awhile. once or twice a year on average. I still have access to my my needs and wants - like Steam (thanks to a thread posted here on this MSFN xp forum, slack (firefox version 90 spoof required), my gaming emulators, etc. I've gone through a few computers in my lifetime, and i may consider getting a Dell Latitude E6420 next sometime. Only thing im concerned about is getting all the updates up to the 2014 April EOL via one of those youtube 2021 videos i've seen about it, "then" i can focus on copying over all my programs/years worth of settings, etc. I'm perfectly comfortable staying on XP still.

  4. @VistaLover was actually answering a question of mine about a different matter. On Win 7, I noticed one more process than on Win XP, and that was his explanation. That "extra" process will only appear on St 55 on Win 7+. Setting browser.tabs.remote.separateFileUriProcess to true does apply to St 52 as well as 55 and Win XP as well as 7+; it creates an additional process when using file:// URLs to browse HTML on your local PC or network. Probably not a big deal for most folks.

  5. (The following applies to St 55. May be true of St 52 too, but I haven't tested.) I don't know if this was ever answered in this thread, but it seems to work with pref dom.max_script_run_time (default 20). Basically if a script runs for over 20 (or whatever other value you set) seconds, a yellow banner pops up at the top of the window, giving you the option to cancel the script. There's also an option to dismiss the banner, but it'll come back in another 20 seconds if the script still isn't finished. The banner will go away on its own anyway, if the script finishes. If dom.ipc.processHangMonitor is set to false, a dialog box pops up instead of the yellow banner, with the same options. There's also a "don't show this again" checkbox on the dialog box, but it doesn't seem to do anything; the dialog will come back even if you check the box. Doesn't seem to make sense, but that's been my experience. I find both true and false settings annoying, so instead I set dom.max_script_run_time to 0. This seems to be the only way to fully disable it and let long-running scripts finish without interruption. You could instead set it to a larger value, such as 120, instead of 0, depending on your patience for letting long-running scripts finish.

  6. I think he was involved with Vista too, but he probably doesn't talk about that too much!

  9. You should keep separate profiles for 27 and 28, otherwise your shared profile will (probably) get corrupted because of the various changes between versions. Start "palemoon.exe -P" to bring up the profile manager.

  10. When Pale Moon project was started, it wasn't about catering to old hardware. From the day one, its goal was to take advantage of modern CPUs and their newer instruction sets while Firefox was the one that catered to ancient CPUs.

  11. (offtopic) For people under oppressive regimes, dissidents, journalists, the military, etc. it's a valid and legal option. From Wikipedia: Sure, there are people who abuse it for nefarious purposes. But there are enough that have a good reason to make use of it.

  12. Well palemoon developers hates tor and other anonymisers. Peoples who block tor does not realise some peoples have genuine need to use it. Maybe I could start recommending against palemoon since they hide source code from public and may have something to hide on code and recommend use it forks instead. That is not lie, if they do not let everyone access source code and could maybe make developers come back to senses when get bad image
