  1. There is no need to hex-edit the dll file anymore. You can simply substitute psapi.dll in the KernelEx folder with the updated one:
  2. I can't start and run these browsers with the Ucrtbase.dll (system folder) of MyPal or Centaury (10.0.16299.397). I had this file in the ME system folder on my P4V800D-X machine. The substitution of ucrtbase.dll to version 10.0.14393.33 of Firefox 52.9 brought success.
  3. I am pleased, that you like to test ReactOS files on Win ME. I would like to help, but I had never tried VMWare/VMWare Tools on ReactOS. It's also been round about 10 years since I tinkered with VM's. You may find more help on the ReactOS forum or ReactOS Wiki at first. (https://reactos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=16367) Of course, VMWare Tools on ReactOS is off topic here in KernelEx Auxiliary DLL Updates.
  4. No, Centaury runs with the cairo ContentAzureBackend here only. CTR can improve the look of Firefox/Centaury, when cairo is used.
  5. CTR: Extension ClassicThemeRestorer. It can be used to improve or to fix some icon glitches as well as the TabBar glitch. content.azure.backend: The config string is "gfx.content.azure.backends". The left value is used. Default is "direct2d1.1,skia,cairo" (Firefox52). ME doesn't support direct2D, so that in this case skia is used. https://www.slideshare.net/SotaroIkeda1/firefox-os-graphics-inside
  6. KM76.4.4 (changelog): - Bug 1154322 - Allow using skia for content rendering. r=jrmuizel (26413363e) Thanks RoyTam for allowing testing, if the change is for me. K-Meleon fails to start with skia ContentBackend on ME and XP. Is skia, in context to your builds, discussed somewhere? Date 06/24/2021 Time 13:47 K-MELEON caused an exception 03H in module MOZALLOC.DLL at 0177:016210bd.

  7. No, Palemoon has caused an error in <unknown>. PALEMOON caused an invalid page fault in module <unknown> at c239:00020001.

  8. I'm sorry to say that I haven't a workaround to run RT's browsers NewMoon, Serpent, ArcticFox and IceApe so far. All versions crash on start. The reasons are different between NM26.5/27/ArcticFox and NM28/Serpent.
  9. Today I tried to run FF 52, Centaury ... on my other three active Win ME machines to verify that it works, to better isolate possible problems and to find out the exact requirements. So far I wasn't able to run these browser versions on my oldest system, Via PT880Ultra (P4V800D-X), P4 C Nothwood which meets SSE2, NV5900XT (AGP). The highest FF version I can run is 48.0.2, here. There were no problems on the other two computers (iG31,P5KPL/1600, Core2Duo 8500, NV7900GS and i915, MS-7058, P640 Prescott, NV7800GT). Requirements: First get Firefox 48 running. - Kexstubs.ini - reg file APISets/Knowndlls - The UCRTBASE.DLL version 10.0.14393.33 of Firefox 52.9 or 10.0.14393.795 must be in the system folder! Don't use version 10.0.16299.397 of MyPal or Centaury. The DependencyWalker also misses the concrt140.dll. So it can be added, too. - dependentlibs.list Issues: Sporadic letters that were slightly out of place and reduced in size. OE inbox doesn't always open (via winSSLwrap) when FF/MyPal/Centaury is running Sometimes error in Kexstubs on start - second start always OK MyPal: Updater doesn't work Sometimes I can't close Tabs after a while. "Input in address bar doesn't work on second browser start anymore / Search Engine List is empty". See issues Firefox 28 - 44 Centaury/MyPal: Mostly seldom - Error in Xul (browser restart required) Centaury: https://github.com/Feodor2/Centaury/issues/32 Boolean must be added: svg.in-content.enabled;true (not only issue on ME) The Search (Navigation Toolbar) doesn't work, if you set it back to "Old Search" with the ClassicThemeRestorer (Search Bar > Page 1). And see FF issues on first page. I checked e10s on FF48 of my oldest machine (single core), too. But it was also completely unstable and unusable.
  10. e10s: FF52.9esr on XP => probably OK Multiprocess Windows: 2/2 (Enabled by user) FF52.9esr on ME => doesn't start without message IceDragon 52 on XP => probably OK Multiprocess Windows: 2/2 (Enabled by user) IceDragon 52 on ME => doesn't start "IceDragon has caused an error in IceDragon.exe" Centaury on ME => Multiprocess Windows: 2/2 enabled by user, but got an endless connecting (Tabs) with blank pages.
  11. The appropriate topic on MSFN: (https://msfn.org/board/topic/178466-force-multiprocess-mode-in-ff-52/) So far I only have read the first page. MyPal: e10s may not exist or is removed. Centaury: e10s is disabled by default. I enabled it for the check. I had all extensions enabled and later I also had them disabled (PlainOldFavorites, CTR, CAA, GitHub Web Components Polyfill), but this haven't made a difference. The first try was the worst. The Kext prompt appeared, because USER32.dll: RegisterTouchWindow (win7 API) was called and the user ressources (TaskManager) went down. I had to reboot. Then I disabled this API in the stubs.ini and I also tried different stubs, with the result that Electrolysis apparently basically works here (Multiprocess Windows: 2/2 enabled by user), but got an endless connecting (Tabs) with blank pages. Now I will finish reading Force "multiprocess mode" in FF 52 first.
  12. Hallo Jumper. So far, I have not examined or considered e10s in detail. Because of your request I have just tinkered with some settings on 52.9. browser.tabs.remote.autostart browser.tabs.remote.force-enable=true => FF doesn't start extensions.e10sMultiBlockedByAddons 52.9 haven't this boolean dom.ipc.processCount extensions.e10sBlockedByAddons extensions.e10sBlocksEnabling (default true) => Troubleshootinginfo: "disabled by addons") when set false => Info "WindowsXP" I will test different settings more closely in the next days. Quite a bit about Electrolysis: https://www.ghacks.net/2016/07/22/multi-process-firefox/ It remains exciting.
  13. Centaury 0.16 could have not only problems on ME. Logos (icons) are also missing on XP. It doesn't run very long here. At some point it encountered a problem and I must restart Centaury. https://github.com/Feodor2/Centaury/issues/32
  14. After several attempts it worked.
  15. Obviously the Firefox default APISet dll loading of dependentlibs.list doesn't get along with forwarding dll's in the registry by knownDlls here. In details: The file "dependentlibs.list" is in the Firefox program folder. MSVCP140.dll api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll api-ms-win-crt-string-l1-1-0.dll api-ms-win-crt-heap-l1-1-0.dll api-ms-win-crt-stdio-l1-1-0.dll api-ms-win-crt-convert-l1-1-0.dll VCRUNTIME140.dll api-ms-win-crt-math-l1-1-0.dll api-ms-win-crt-filesystem-l1-1-0.dll api-ms-win-crt-environment-l1-1-0.dll mozglue.dll api-ms-win-crt-utility-l1-1-0.dll api-ms-win-crt-time-l1-1-0.dll api-ms-win-crt-multibyte-l1-1-0.dll nss3.dll lgpllibs.dll api-ms-win-crt-locale-l1-1-0.dll xul.dll => New: dependentlibs.list for Firefox 49 - 52.9 and Cyberfox 49/49.0.1 mozglue.dll nss3.dll lgpllibs.dll xul.dll ---------------- I also had Thunderbird 52.9 running. Still to be noted - the account wizard doesn't open (it freezes on start). MyPal: The "address bar workaround" to set search.json to read only may not work. I want to investigate further. The AzureContentBackend skia probably works fine on it. dependentlibs.list for MyPal (28 / 29) and Centaury ( up to 0.16): mozglue.dll nss3.dll gkmedias.dll lgpllibs.dll mozsqlite3.dll xul.dll Screenshot MyPal 29.2 on ME Centaury crashed with skia AzureContentBackend. So leave cairo and use CTR. dependentlibs.list for SeaMonkey (2.46 - 2.49.5) and Thunderbird (52 - 52.9.1): LDAP60.dll mozglue.dll nss3.dll PRLDAP60.dll lgpllibs.dll xul.dll Msvcp140.dll and vcruntime140.dll aren't knowndll's and may remain in the file.
