  1. Thanks for taking care of the problem , I probably can't test it before Wednesday or Thursday.
  2. I don't receive any new Kstub log entries. I also never succeeded in assigning an API. Nothing happens, if I try to make a new bookmark. There's no window "New Bookmark" or "Page Bookmarked". The window "Edit Bookmark" appears, if the bookmark exists. Old problem from 2011 - never really completely fixed. I don't know, whether the culprit is still in it: https://sourceforge.net/p/kernelex/feature-requests/7/
  3. Today I noticed, that all my file shares seem broken. I renewed the link (file share) of Firefox 31.8 (1st post). @ Kurt_Aust, you use Kext, so it can be, that an additional entry/definition in Kstub causes the error on exit. The simple replace of places.sqlite with one of Firefox on XP or 7 should work, too. Then you can use the existing History and Bookmarks, but you still can't add bookmarks and recently visited addresses still aren't saved.
  4. ... can't verify. On ME it looks the same to me as on XPSP3.
  5. The 32KB file is corrupt / created garbled on ME or 98 / KernelEx. History doesn't work properly - not solved: Recently visited addresses aren't saved.
  6. places.sqlite has a fixed size of 10.240KB regardless of the size of the history. I had run this portable version Firefox 31.8 from the first post on XP once to ensure, that the functions "restore previous session, recently closed tabs and recently closed window" work and the pages load as they should. Re-creating places.sqlite on 98 may break functionality again.
  7. You also can try RoyTam's portable-loader (o.rthost.win/palemoon/palemoon-portable-loader.7z) instead of the one of sourceforge. Rename palemoon to firefox in the txt file.
  8. Hallo, it shouldn't happen with Firefox 31.8 from the first post. Try - rename the portable profile folder, start FirefoxPortable.exe and make the improvements step by step yourself. IceCat 38.8 crashes on exit. The replace of RaiseException solves this problem.
  9. IMO the entry RaiseException=v4 is OK for testing purposes. For testing only, because such entry may cause errors elsewhere, e.g. the first I found with v4 is MRU-Blaster hangs on close. As soon as we have the Kex update, RaiseException should then be removed from Kstub.ini at the latest.
  10. v4 works here, too. Note, that the Kstub.ini with RaiseException in core.ini must placed on the right to Kexbasen,Kexbases. It doesn't work, if it is on the left side.
  11. v4 seems to be the best for now. It even solves the crashes on browser checker sites, if WebRTC is enabled.
  12. Jumper, thanks for taking on the problem. I also can start Serpent with following Kstub entries without replacing RaiseException in xul or mozjs: [Kernel32.dll] RaiseException=v4 or RaiseException=>Kernel32.dll:GetLastError However, I haven't tested this method in depth to see, if it causes any problems. GetFileTime doesn't work for Serpent. What makes you think, that it's a good choice in this case of RaiseException? Supplement: RaiseException=>api-ms-win-core-errorhandling-l1-1-0.dll:GetLastError (Wine 5 APISetDLL) works, too, but you usually don't have wine 5 APISetDlls on your machine. The ReactOS file realisation also may work, but I haven't a good experience with ROS APISetDlls, because some have produced errors. API SetLastError produces an Error on Serpent close.
  13. A crash doesn't occur on MSFN, , whether with or without WebRTC here. Other than most, which ones don't work for you?
  14. Does the crash also occur on pages other than browser checkers? My impression is that only a few pages are affected. WebRTC has always been inconspicuous with Firefox until now and and has not led to such crashes, but of course there is no replaced RaiseException. The replace in xul also works with NewMoon 27, but not before version 27.10.0.win32-git-20230513. It runs with AzureContentBackend Cairo only, so a lot of icons are "very abstract" or unrecognizable and buttons have randomly coloured borders (compilation switch - skia disabled). There are PM Themes, like PMOpera 2.1.0 or Aeromoon 2.2.0, that at least improve the appearance. And note to be expected issues like browser window is not completely displayed (Remedy: Hardware acceleration "layers.acceleration.force-enabled -> true") or input in address bar doesn't work on second browser start anymore / Search Engine List is empty.
  15. Workaround: Set WebRTC for those pages to disabled or permanently switched off (media.peerconnection.enabled -> false). The extension QuickJava 2.1.2 is a nice helper here. You can disable WebRTC with one click only. NewMoon has no WebRTC implementation. The crash also doesn't occur with Javascript disabled.
  16. It is RaiseException in Xul. Affected Serpent 52/55. I tried to replace it, but Serpent still crashes on this page.
  17. Yes, it happened here, too, on Serpent 55, but not on NewMoon (latest) and Iceape (round about one year old). Others not testet on the fast. Exception 406D1388 could still indicate the same problem. I'll check the address. Requirements: The KexVista module isn't required as I expected. RoyTam already has removed APISet Stub dll entries in dependentlibs.list. Otherwise, the same requirements as with FF52 should apply. .
  18. I've Mypal68 still not running (I'm able to run it in background without GUI). The problem with RaiseException exists here, too. Faultlog: "MYPAL caused an exception 406d1388H in module XUL.DLL at 0177:0b0715b0." (corresponding API RaiseException) Noticeable is that this exception occurs twice in a row on start. The replace by GetLastError (or ResumeThread) doesn't work. Then the browser also can't start on XP. NewMoon: It has a quite high consumption of GDI resources on ME like Mypal 28/29. I recommend the extension FreeMemoryButton-1.1.2. Serpent 55 isn't or is affected comparatively little..
  19. Running RT'S uxp based browsers like NewMoon 28 or Serpent 55 on ME or 98: I think I already mentioned "Second chance exception 0x406D1388 (Thread was named) occurred in "MOZJS.DLL" at address ..." somewhere here in this forum. Older versions couldn't have this module, so it happened in Xul.dll here. The corresponding API is RaiseException. Raise Exception is supported by Kernel32, but it fails in this case somehow. The best workaround I found is to replace this API by GetLastError with a hex-editor. There is also no consequential error when closing the program. Note that Serpent 55 requires ordinal 327 [Oleaut32], too, otherwise you get the known xpcom message on start. You can start Serpent 55 with the help of "APIlog". On Kex prompt the message appears "Xul is linked to missing Oleaut32.dll:327". Confirm with yes. On my main machine I've the ordinal functioning in the Kstub.ini, so there is no need to use Apilog here. I set the exe to XPSP3 and maked them portable using RT'S portable-loader. I'm not quite sure about the exact requirements yet. My KernelEx is expanded by jumpers Kexvista module, too. I recommend the program settings mentioned on the first page, like AzureContentBackend Skia. Have fun!
  20. Open "view page source" and search for e.g. expanded_assets -> https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal68/releases/expanded_assets/68.13.2b
  21. https://web.archive.org/web/20230602195245/https://kernelex.sourceforge.net/wiki/VLC_Media_Player KernelEx home/wiki page is blank! Yesterday SourceForge upgraded the PHP version.
  22. No offence! Basically I use yours on all machines.
  23. I don't see a problem with uxtheme of XP, BWC or React OS here. "Remaining in memory"is verified with Process-Managers. But indeed there is a prob with the ones of Vista and 7. ImportPatcher gives [Export forward replacements] SHUNIMPL. ordinals. Shunimpl doesn't even load with procwin.
  24. Thanks for the update. I'll let you know, if I run into trouble. My first impression is good and all my requested API's are now supported.
  25. Named api needed after the colon. KernelEx\KnownDLLs can't be extended yet. Yes. Add dummy names. Workaround confirmed now. Verified based on some modules with a few missing ordinals. Because of the Kext size and a high number of ordinals, it has become quite confusing here. I had to correct some mistakes in the ini files. In order to distinguish, each dummy name really has to be different. Yes, in Ktree I need "#" for all needed ordinals. The additional ones can then have the zero in front of the number.
