  1. Is there any need about core.20i? Or do I have to rename it to core.ini (and overwrite or delete the old core.ini)?

  2. Hardware specs on that machine: AMD Athlon XP, 2075 MHz 512 MB (PC2700 Virtual Channel DDR SDRAM) ... But I don't suppose that hardware is the problem for freezing javascript because of Retrozila with JS enabled doesn't freez, also KM74 (under WinXP) doesn't freeze (only causes JS error messages) on the same machine. OS: Microsoft Windows 98 SE 4.10.2222A (Win98 SE) with (if I remember correctly) some minor bugfixes (I would have to search for more details) Kernelex files: CBAKK.INI KERNELEX.DLL KEXBASES.DLL KEXBASEN.DLL sheet.dll kexCOM.dll verify.exe License.txt Release Notes.txt Uninstall.exe VKrnlEx.vxd msimg32.dll pdh.dll psapi.dll uxtheme.dll wtsapi32.dll userenv.dll Kstub822.dll Kstub822.ini Kstub822.log Core.ini Most of them, where file version is visible, version 4.05.2016.16. Is version 4.05.2016.16 really better than 4.05.2016.17?! In the first post of this thread there are not particular KernelEx files downloadable?! I have here an packed file collection named KernelEx Updates 4.5.2019.24.7z with many files in it. The installation seemes to be a little bit tricky(?); not just replace files in Kernelex directory like for the older KernelEx versions(?!). Maybe it will be necessary to make comprehensive (system file) backups before installing it; I'm not sure whether system files are affected by KernelEx Updates 4.5.2019.24.7z, or only files in Kernelex directory. Or should one use exactly the Kernelex files recommended in post 1 in this thread? Probably I will do more tests to "stabilize" FF 31.8.0 version. It has some more issues, e.g.: - mouse-right-click not working - new tabs don't work properly - no javascript enable/disable checkbox under "Tools->Options" in Firefox - Back-button next to URL bar does work only sometimes.
  3. Palemoon 25.4.1 didn't work because of MSVCR110.DLL wasn't found allegedly, whether it was in the palemoon file directory. I don't think that's a router firewall problem (here) because of Kmeleon74 works under WinXP (with other minor problems) on the same machine with Javascript enabled. Retrozilla with Javascript enabled works under Win98SE, but has on the other hand more problems displaying "modern" websites than Kmeleon74.
  4. I didn't visit msfn.org for a long time, and now I re-visited here and found this thread. Just for fun I downloaded some newer Firefox-Versions (portable and non-portable) and tried to launch them. Surprise: Only with a few modifications especially FF 31.8.0 portable immediately started! By the way, wiithout XPCOM-not-found-error. The only thing I had to do was to set KernelEx compability mode for firefox.exe and xul.dll to Windows XP SP2. No need to set anything in any *.ini-file. The installed KernelEx files are mainly version 4.05.2016.16. I can publish content of core.ini and Kstub822.ini if somebody wishes. I can't remember that I edited those files. There are some major bugs (URL bar doesn't work properly) and minor bugs (small graphic issues). No problems with being blocked on websites becaus of too low TLS version. The only (major) problem is that javascript doesn't seem to work, more precisely: Most websites will freeze during loading with javascript enabled. (But there is the same problem with e.g. KMeleon74.) Did anybody manage it to run any FF version between 24 and 48 with Javascript enabled?
  5. Does the setting: <...msvcr80.dll in the KM Program Folder to Base (Kexbases,Kexbasen)...> in KM74 prevent KMeleon from freezing if Javascript is enabled? KMeleon74 can open many websites, but doesn't work if javascript is required.
  6. I tested an arbitrary youtube site and found indeed that value in its source code. But in FF9.0.1 there's no possibility to change text/values in source code view; it's just for viewing. I tried to save a youtube site ("completely") and to edit the *.html file with a hex editor, but in the so created website the youtube video still didn't work. How exactly did you proceed? For now, the only method to view youtube is that method with bookmarklets. Maybe it would be possible to write a more comfortable bookmarklet or extension, which will automatically create download links while visiting any youtube site. Another disadvantage is that you have to wait until the video is downloaded; only then you can watch it (e.g. with media player classic). OK; that's not such a big problem if the video is "small" or short. You could try the version I've uploaded. Additional: Maybe it's necessary to activate micross.ttf in "Display properties -> Appearance". I've set it as standard font in some settings there (a long time ago).
  7. Same result here. It seems they've changed something regarding HTML5(?). Although Firefox 9.0.1 is principially able to play HTML5-embedded videos, youtube is no longer working. A current workaround: You could create a so-called bookmarklet (i.e. a bookmark) with the following URL: javascript:(function(d){d.PwnBkmkVer=3;d.body.appendChild(d.createElement('script')).src='https://deturl.com/ld.asp?'+1*new%20Date;})(document); You have to call this link while a youtube video is "playing" (better: is not playing) and you will get some links with the video in several file formats. It's advantageous to have the addon HyperBK installed to have bookmarks in FF 9.0.1. Maybe it's possible to associate the file extension "mp4" to any media player of your choice directly in firefox; if you don't want to save the video, but only to view it. The mp4-files from youtube work even with the good old MCP (Media Player Classic) revision 82. Disadvantage: You have to wait until the video is fully downloaded. I.e. a video doesn't start immediately, because the videos in mp4-format are not streamed in real time. Any ideas how to achieve that?
  8. As far as I remember correctly it's a font file from WinXP.
  9. I've downgraded all KernelEx-files to version 16. Result: The security-component-errors don't occur again. Even Kmeleon does (principially) work with that version of KernelEx, but it's a little bit buggy, and e.g. youtube doesn't work properly.
  10. I got a version from here k-meleon-74-windows-9x-edition from roytam. I'll try your tip with the db-files. Maybe some files from firefox are working(?). I also found out a strange behaviour. For tests I wanted to create a new firefox 9.0.1 profile. But it didn't work; I got the same error like with Kmeleon: However, my "old" firefox 9.0.1 profile did still work. After downgrading KernelEx from 2016.17 to 4.5.2 that strange "security-component"-error was gone away! So I suppose it has something to do with 2016.17-version; maybe only one file. Also with an older version 2015.xx(?) from KernelEx I had tested with new FF-profiles and had never have such security-component-errors. Presumably KMeleon 74 won't work with any older KernelEx version than 2016.17, but I'll try to change every *.dll from it separately.
  11. For me, youtube is still(!) working in FF 9.0.1. A general problem seems to be that youtube (and other sites with videos) have started to "eliminate" Adobe's Flash player, which worked fine. Howewer, fullscreen mode in youtube doesn't work, but that's better than nothing. As far as I remember I had changed something in Firefox' about:config regarding media(?) to prevent videos from jerking, but I'm not sure. Regarding to the "strange characters problem": I had have exactly the same problem with Firefox 9.0.1, too. If I remember correctly (I'm not sure whether I will now forget something): My solution was to copy the font-file MICROSS.TTF (Microsoft Sans Serif Standard v1.33) into the Windows\Fonts folder and to add the following into the registry: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Fonts] "Microsoft Sans Serif Standard (TrueType)"="MICROSS.TTF" That was the most important thing what made FF9 usable (even more than FF 3.6) for me. For bookmarks functionality, I use HyperBK. It works almost exactly like original Firefox bookmarks.
  12. I tried "Kmeleon 74 windows9x edition". With the "original" KernelEx 4.5.2 version that Kmeleon version didn't start. But with the latest KernelEx 4.5.2016.17 it started at lesat - a partial(?) success! However unfortunatelyI noticed some issues: 1.) @mindingulove At first I can confirm your observation regarding the "could not initialize..."-error. You can see a screenshot below. 2.) It seems that it's (as a consequence of issue 1 ?!) not possible to open any(!?) site with "https". You can also see an example sceenshot below. 3.) Every time I try to add a bookmark Kmeleon crashes with an "invalide page fault". The exact wording (partially in german) is: "K-MELEON verursachte einen Fehler durch eine ungültige Seite in Modul BOOKMARKS.DLL bei 016f:035908f5. Register: EAX=00000000 CS=016f EIP=035908f5 EFLGS=00010246 EBX=00000000 SS=0177 ESP=008cb704 EBP=78144cad ECX=00000028 DS=0177 ESI=00000000 FS=2107 EDX=81bf59c4 ES=0177 EDI=00a49640 GS=0000 Bytes bei CS:EIP: 66 83 3b 00 56 57 8b f3 8b fb 74 4e 55 8b 2d 4c Stapelwerte: 00000f60 035909de 00000000 00000028 008cb75c 00a49640 00000194 7f2e7a8a 00000f60 0358e4fa 008cb75c 00000028 12b29301 00a49140 00a4b580 008cb9b0". But nonetheless the idea to backport a quite new browser like Kmeleon 74 to Win98 is nice. Maybe that could solve some problems which exist with Firefox 9.0.1, what is actually still the best browser for Win98SE with KernelEx. Main Problem in FF9 is that lately more and more sites are blocked because of "invalid" TLS-version (I suppose so).
  13. Until now it was (as far as I know) impossible to use any Java Plugin in Firefox 3.6.* or higher. So the last Firefox version which is usable is 3.5.19. But now I've read some news about several KernelEx updates here. So here's now me question: Is anybody out there who managed it meanwhile to run a Java Plugin (I'm thinking especially about the Java next-gen-plugin) in FF 3.6.* or higher (including until FF 9.0.*)? The non-working Java Plugin in FF 3.6.* or higher is a reason why to stay at FF 3.5.19.
  14. Is the "paste button" (or similarly) in CorelDraw active (i.e. not greyed out) if you previously have selected "copy graphic" in SeaMonkey? Do you use an older or newer CorelDraw version? Firefox 3.5.19 is a "KernelEx browser". So if copying works (does it?) with Firefox 3.5.19 your problem should not be a general KernelEx issue. If I were you I would try/test the following: - Try to copy&paste from an old SeaMonkey version into your current CorelDraw version. - Try to copy&paste from FF 3.5.19 version into your current CorelDraw version. - Try to copy&paste from current SM 2.0.14 version into several (older and newer) CorelDraw versions. - Try to copy&paste from current SM 2.0.14 version into another image editor (like FixFoto; I can email you an old exe for testing if you want). That you can copy into IrfanView shows that copying from SM 2.0.14 isn't impossible in general.
  15. After trying some fonts (especially for working with MathML) I stayed in conclusion at the font "Symbola". I modified the newest version a little bit; i.e. improved some integral symbols and compressed the font file symbola_hint.ttf by deleting emtpy glyphs so that it has only 3,19 MB now. Symbola has not all symbols (e.g. chinese or japanese symbols are missing), but many Unicode symbols are included. Actual screenshot from http://www.w3.org/Math/testsuite/build/main/Characters/Blocks/02190_Arrows-full.xhtml with Symbola: @ MiKl How did you install that font FontAwesome? I tested it by simply copying the file fontawesome-webfont.ttf into Windows' fonts folder. I did not copy the other files included in the downloaded file font-awesome-4.3.0.zip. After that Firefox 3.5.19 displays http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/ correctly without any further modifications. Firefox 3.5.19 requires KernelEx, too (like SeaMonkey 2.0.14 does). Which KernelEx version do you use? Yoo should try Firefox 3.5.19 together with FontAwesome to find out whether your problem is maybe a SeaMonkey issue. Does copying images from websites work with Firefox 3.5.19? I can't try it with CorelDraw because I don't have Corel Draw; but with some other image viewers/editors (IrfanView & Fixfoto) does it work if I copy an image from Firefox 3.5.19 into the editor. What exactly happens if you try to copy and paste an image directly from SeaMonkey into CorelDraw?
