  1. KernelEx 4.5.2

    OK - I wrote yesterday that Firefox3.6 was rock solid for me, and this is true, but I discovered today that the Java doesn't work anymore. I don't believe I have read anything about that in this thread so far. Here is what I got: 1) Loading a java-based page I got asked to install a plugin. It tried to do so but the auto installation failed. I tried a manual install with no success. 2) After investigation it transpires that Firefox3.6 needs JRE6update10 minimum to have java work. I eventually got that JRE version installed and then, when I went to the java-based page that had previously asked me for the plugin, I just got a black screen in the java area, and NO request for a plugin download. So nothing works there now. Not sure how to proceed here. I could revert to a Firefox3.5x - but 3.6 is supposed to be be much faster. Do you know Xeno86 if this factor can be addressed? Many thanks for all your esteemed work.
  2. KernelEx 4.5.2

    I finally upgraded to the latest KernelEx Beta a couple of days ago and got Firefox3.6 installed and looking how I wanted it, replacing my previous FireFox2.0.0.20 (I think - the last v2 anyway.) The next day, using it, I got graphics corruptions after a while, starting with the browser icons and then generally shifting to more snd more things including system icons, and getting thick black lines across webpages. The machine generally slowed down too. The only way of curing it was a complete reboot, but it would soon return. After much tearing of hair, I stumbled upon the idea of checking the graphics drivers and found a 2009 issue for my card (NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420.) I was surprised, cos it's an older card, but this totally cured my problem. Everything is rock-solid now. It may not be the cause of your problem, though the symptoms seem to be the same, so worth checking.

    Thanks, having made the registry changes you specified, I now have Flash10 installed, which is great. This restores an ability to download my phone call logs which had stopped working several months ago Now to try for Firefox 3.5 !!

    Well - I don't know what I could be doing wrong, but I still can't get Flash 10 installed. I ran the xp.reg and tried the installer (Plugin) linked to above, with compatibility set to first Win2K then WinXP, but both types of attempt fail partway through with the message that I am trying to install on an unsupported operating system. Any suggestions? Win98SE KernelEx 4.0 Final
