  1. I was suspecting specific websites at first. Fiverr, Upwork, Facebook. The number of tabs open didn't matter. The CPU would stay at nearly 50%, eating up one of my cores. So disruptive was the situation, that I attempted, at first, to use Ublock Origin to disable individual scripts using the logger. Then I abandoning that effort and tried to rebuild the browser, in the process discovering the --no-remote solution. I don't want to say with any certainty, that it was specific websites. It may not have been specific websites. Simple websites seemed to be much less of a trigger? I started offloading problematic websites to tabs on K-Meleon, until, finally, a website I didn't expect to be a problem also caused the CPU issue.
  2. @VistaLover I started rebuilding the browser from scratch (yes the profile, but also another folder with another instance of the program files). I started to, is the key phrase here. I didn't continue, because I noticed that I was no longer having issues with CPU racing. The only thing I changed was the --no-remote switch. So now I am back to using the old profile, and the old program files that have been updated-in-place several times over the years. Sorry, I thought it was clear.
  3. No. Because I ended up continuing to use the browser profile without rebuilding it from scratch :-) So as far as I can tell, given I made no other changes, it is the only reason. The only side effect to using the switch, is that I can't launch a link in my browser from another application. I will eventually remove the switch to see if it is reproducible, but right now, I'm too much enjoying my browser running so smoothly.
  4. PM28, WinXP My CPU had been racing on several web pages. I tried several things, which eventually led me to rebuild my browser from scratch. In doing so, I wished to run two instances of the browser, and used the command switches -profile <path> --no-remote. To my surprise, my CPU issues went away, I guess because of the use of --no-remote.
  5. I don't know if this file is allowed here. I don't see why it wouldn't be, but for some reason it was removed. So I'm providing a download not here but on my site. It's just a reg file editor. Translates a reg file from hex, lets you edit it, and translates it back to hex when you're done. More details on the site. If there's software that does the same that's more current, please let me know. https://mekineer.com/information-technology/2019-windows-7-setup Direct link to file
  6. Is anyone having issues with passwords not being filled automatically? Wait: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?t=18321 Am I just now noticing this??? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Signon.autofillForms Ok, I changed at least 3 settings, and now it works.
  7. Does anyone using PM 28 have trouble with this extension not working? Back to Close: http://legacycollector.org/firefox-addons/9793/back-to-close-1.11.1-signed.1-signed.xpi
  8. Good luck with the typhoon, Roytam1. I hope everyone stays safe.
  9. Netflix isn't working on my New Moon 28.1.0a1. However, it is working on an old installation of New Moon 27.7.0a2. Anyone else having issues with Netflix?
  10. Is anyone with New Moon able to watch movie previews on IMDB? (or is it just me) What plugin is being used?
  11. I'm uncertain what the differences are between Feodor2 and Roytam1 releases, except that Roytam1 releases are based on Feodor2 patches. Roytam1, what do you add or take away? I'm currently using New Moon 27.7.0a2. Once I download the 7z archive, do I overwrite the files in the existing new moon "palemoon" folder, or do I have to start from scratch and add all the extensions and plugins and customizations? Also, just to be sure, there is a regular, an SSE, and a no-SSE to pick from. Regular also supports SSE2 or above?
  12. Maybe what shows in the security catalogs, are the encrypted versions of the SHA1 hashes? They may be encrypted with a public key, and only MS would have the private key. I don't know, I'm just taking guesses.
  13. Maybe this: http://pev.sourceforge.net/doc/manual/en_us/ch05s03.html Not sure what a "section" would be.
  14. http://www.keir.net/hash.html I took the hash of shell32.dll.mui, that I pulled from a zh-tw language pack File Version: 6.1.7601.17514 (win7sp1_rtm.101119-1850) Modified: Saturday, November 20, 2010, 6:21:18 AM MD5: 20AA0D4DB61152CBC4D9A96964A98A48 SHA1: 33217BEE852DAE99DD89CC62554F74EBAE8A960C CRC32: 723E04A0 I searched for the SHA1 within all the files in the lp.cab. No result. I opened one cat file at random, then copied one of the hashes from it, and searched again in lp.cab for this hash string: result is the cat file from which I copied the hash. Maybe they don't include the PE headers in the hash calculation?
  15. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Hash_Algorithm The hashes in the Security Catalog, are SHA1 in length
  16. Hopefully with the last edit, what I was trying to say makes sense!
  17. I calculated SHA-1, using a program called Hash. I searched for the this hash inside the cat files, using a program that searches within files, but can't find it. If I search with this program for a hash I know is in one of the cat files, I can find it
  18. When I take the hash of a file, and compare it with the hash in the Security Catalog, it doesn't match up. Maybe the hash listed in the catalog is not of the whole file, just important parts of the file? If so, is there a tool that will calculate the hash in the Microsoft way? I could use makecat, but it is a pain having to make a text file before getting the hash. I haven't tried it yet, so neither do I know if it will work. Also, I can see a list of hashes in the cat file, but I don't know the corresponding filenames. Is there a cat file viewer that lists the filenames that correspond with the hashes?
  19. The goal for me, was to have less use of system resources. So my thinking, was that in not having something installed, there would be less chance that unwanted processes/actions would run in the background. For example, installing a component, might register an additional service, using memory and cpu cycles. If I don't need that service, why install? Just copy the files over, in case some app had a dependency on a particular file the component has. This is my thinking, but I don't know to what extent it is correct.
  20. expand -r component.cab /switch Where switch means, don't dump the files all in the same folder. Nest them where they would go. See attached 32 bit example.
  21. Is there a way to extract component cab files into a directory structure (as they would sit in the windows directory, but in a separate folder), that would make it easy to just copy-paste the files of a component into the windows directory? It would make it easy to experiment if Windows needs the registry entries for certain files, or if it will work with the files just placed into system32 and so on. For example, I can get by without installing the component "security base". Without the files manually copied from security base into the windows directory, I can't use regedit to merge a reg file. With the files in place, but not installed, I can. Come to think of it, I don't know if "security base" is a win7 component. I am working with Windows Embedded Standard 7: I just use it at home for my own system. It was my choice to use it as an alternative to 7customizer, rt7lite, etc.
  22. Ok, you can attach *.zip files, but not *.log files. Makes more sense to attach all the logs anyway. logs.zip
  23. On Windows 7, the flash drive was auto-formatted with FBinst. [/] align [/] copy BPB, fat32. The flash drive worked ok. After using it a few times, I went to add another OS and it gave the MBR error message. Trying to upload the log files: Error You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file I reduced it to 93KB, but still no... .
