  1. Hi,

    what that I can say is that Firefox 4.0b7 work on Windows 98SE with KernelEX 4.5RC5

    Unfortunately the new update of Firefox 4.0b8 doesn't work on my W98SE with KernelEX 4.5 RC5 even with KernelEx 4.5 final version :(

    I ask as I just wanted to make sure, but I take it you un-installed the old KernelEx and re-booted prior to installing the final version?

    I wasn't sure if any of the 4 beta versions would actually work with any of the KernelEx versions, perhaps someone can confirm.

  2. Well, I am back to the same problem again with trying to print from Firefox. Crashes every time. Too late to roll back to Firefox 2 (didn't save it). Seemed to work for awhile with the newer version of Kernel EX, but this problem has occurred with every version and whatever the core problem is, it still isn't fixed. Works for some people though I guess, but not for me and a number of others who have posted the problem here over the years

    Hi John and all, Happy New Year.

    I have supplied a link to download the Firefox version 2.0.0.20, I can verify this is safe as I used it prior to using FF3

    Link deleted.

    All the versions of Firefox are available here if you do need to roll back.

    :)

    Not that I am an expert, but would it help by changing the compatibility tab for firefox.exe to Windows 98?

    I have to say that when I went to file ---->print the print dialogue appeared, only for some seconds later for the illegal message then closedown.

    Even going to the page setup brings a Firefox error.

    FIREFOX caused an invalid page fault in

    module KERNEL32.DLL at 016f:bff7b9f5.

  4. should I just un-install the old version then re-boot and install the new?

    I would say that you MUST uninstall KernelEx before installing the new version,

    because it is patching the KERNEL32.DLL and making first a backup of the original file in his folder (KERNEL32.BAK in directory %WINDIR%\KernelEx).

    If you do the new install 'on the top', the backup will be of the former patched file,

    and the original unpatched file would be lost (to be able to restore it, in case of problem).

    Done as you said, no problems so far.

    When un-installing the previous version I said NO to remember personal customisations.

  5. Why is there 2 lines identical?

    VIA Tech 3038 PCI to USB Universal Host Controller

    On the advanced bandwidth usage for each of these it says on the first one system Reserved 20%, and on the second one it says 11%

    The input/output range differs for both under resources.

    If the input/output range differs, and both are reported working correctly, it probably means you have two USB controllers (and two root hubs, of course) on your motherboard.

    Joe.

    They seem to be working correctly, but apart from a physical check by opening the case, is there another way to see if there are 2 root hubs?

    Let me say that I do have a usb 4 way hub external connected to the computer, would this be the extra 4 that we see on that image?

    In other words 4 being the external, and 4 set around the back of the case unit.

  6. Why would this be needed as the drive is enclosed and I wouldn't have thought that dust would be able to get into the lens.

    A Google for "clean DVD lens" returns 1,380,000 results. I wonder if you could be wrong ?

    You have got to remember that there are also DVD stand alone players/recorders, and as apossed to the internal DVD computer lens I still say there is less chance of cleaning being required

    Just because there are loads of hits doesn't really mean to say that these products actually do any good, in fact some people think they can damage the lens.

  7. Hey if you like firefox but, hate that it uses 2 gb of ram if you leave it open all the time check out Palemoon it's a version firefox optimized for windows, it even has version OPTIMIZED FORE PENTIUM 3,4 AND ATHLON XP!!! On top of this it works exactly as the regular fire fox even the addons i am currently using it with kernel ex runs smooth other browsers would lock up so i got tired of it and got kernel ex.

    How can it use 2gb of ram, I only have 256 ram and it causes no problems apart from the odd crash, but have had that with all my browsers over the years.

    I have tried to update the ram but it caused an internet loop error, so took it out.

    Have you set a compatibility mode for Palemoon on KernelEx?

  8. As we know itunes is not recognised on windows 98, but is there anyway we could manage to get it to work and be recognised on this system?

    I don't know about iTunes on 98, all I know is that I wouldn't use iTunes for anything on any OS :whistle:

    But you can use your iPod with 98 with This Driver and RealPlayer 10.5, the last version for Win9x. I used this setup before to get my girlfriend's iPod working for her in 98.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your help on this.

    Do you think it may work without the driver using KernelEx?

    As you say, I only want to be able to stick on my ipod and hope that windows 98 recognises it.

    I take it I will be able to register my ipod using itunes using that driver?

  9. Is there a good reason why there are duplicate entries as shown on my image below, and is it normal to have duplicates.?

    my_sys10.gif

    The image below shows twice with the same info for the Generic Hub duplicates.

    USB Root Hub Power entries.....

  10. Here my list of add-ons on Firefox 4.0b7 :

    User Agent Switcher0.7.2

    CSLite1.4

    NewTabURL2.2.0

    Add-on CompatibilityReporter0.7

    Feedback1.0.3

    Status-4-Evar2010.11.20.19

    NoScript2.0.7

    Nightly Tester Tools3.0

    (only CSLite doesn't work because incompatible)

    ;)

    Thanks, I really would like to know if the add ons I mentioned earlier that I currently have installed on FF3.6.13 if they would install correctly on FF4.

  11. Hi, are you saying I normally would not be able to install any add-ons with version 4 unless I do this fix that you mention?

    that depend of the add-on ;

    for example AdblockPlus is without problem ; the recent update work perfectly and is decompressed in the right folder :)

    For Noscript the recent update keep in a *.xpi file in the extensions folder and I must decompress it in the original folder of this add-on I have previously and then this add-on work fine.

    ;)

    On Firefox 3.6.13 I have the following add-ons, do you have any of these below? well apart from Adblock Plus, as you have already said it works, which version do you have of that add-on?

    Adblock Plus 1.3.2

    British English Dictionary 1.19.1

    Flasblock 15.14.2

    Java Console 6.0.06

    WOT 20100908

  12. strange Firefox 3 bug

    Just one strange new bug I noticed in KEX 4.5 RC5. When I do "save as" in Firefox 3.6.12 and cancel it, the "save as" dialogue box immediately appears again. Thus I have to cancel it TWICE to close it. May this be a window ID bug or such stuff?

    I noticed this too, will see if it occurs on the latest version of FF3.6.13

    Yes, it happens also on FF3.6.13

  13. Just thought to ask as FF 3.6.13 works on Windows 98 with KernelEx-4.5-RC5, I am wondering if anyone knows what the system requirements might be for Firefox version 4 when it is officially released from beta?

    In other words will FF Version 4 work similar to FF V3.6.13?

    I know I could give the Beta a test, but I don't want to muck up my installation as it works really well at present.

    If anyone has tried it that uses win98 & KernelEx-4.5-RC5 is what I really would like to know.

    Hi,

    what that I can say is that Firefox 4.0b7 work on Windows 98SE with KernelEX 4.5RC5 :)

    There is a little restriction : the new add-on manager : it seem like the add-on that I have from an prévious version work but some updated add-on or new add-on doesn't install or work ;

    that's do to the new form of add-on that keep compressed in the add-on folder and doesn't detected in W98SE ;

    to make them work I have find a issue with extracting the *.xpi file in the same folder with the same name of the add-on

    ;)

    Hi, are you saying I normally would not be able to install any add-ons with version 4 unless I do this fix that you mention?

  15. I managed to install version 4.39 but unsure how I managed it as I too got the same install errors, however the right click on menu doesn't work, and I am certain it isn't getting to the firefox cookies either, so it's not much good to me version 4.39

    Also same problem with the paths disappearing after closing.

  16. SAS detects Firefox Cookies since version 4.39.  Changelog (filehippo): Detects and removes Firefox and Chrome cookies (must have browser closed while scanning to remove cookies). Obviously 4.37 detects only the IE Cookies! 

    And I can confirm that the folderselection for Custom Scan doesn't work. I will check if  the problem is only concerned to this version.

    I would need to therefore require to have SAS version 4.39 being that I use FF3.6 as I would prefer the cookies to be scanned.

    Kind of think I won't get that version as you have already said there is a problem from 4.38 onwards, your quote below.

    Setup version 4.38 to 4.46 shows following message: Install error - Error starting services, aborting installation (tried with different compatibility modes)
