  1. As I said in my previous post, most https pages not loading are due to unsupported cyphers or unsupported key lengths for supported cyphers. There are no other issues AFAIK, certificates certainly aren't one and fiddling with TLS settings won't help for those issues, and there is only one local solution which is using an MITM proxy supporting those cyphers and/or key lengths on your machine and configure your browsers to use it. Another, non-local, solution is to use proxy websites working OK with Opera12/Firefox 8/9. Currently Burp Suite works but it is going to fail too some day when Java 7 will be obsolete on that front. Ideally, what is needed is an MITM proxy that is as capable and adaptive as Burp Suite but is using the OpenSSL libraries instead of Java cryptography.
  2. Unsupported cyphers or supported cyphers with unsupported key lengths are the problem with some https sites. The solution is to use an MITM proxy. See this post for the only working solution I know:
  3. HTTPS proxy for Windows 98? (CCProxy?)

    What makes you believe CCproxy would solve your problems if it worked? What is needed is an MITM proxy not a simple proxy. I know only one that works and solves all my https issues with opera and that is Burp Suite Free Edition. It runs on Java 7 and also requires for optimal use the Java Cryptography Extension Unlimited Strength. I found two more potential candidates which are an old version of ProxHTTPSProxy and DeleGate but went nowhere with either of them.
  4. Interesting malware received via email

    Yes, similar to .lnk and .pif.
  5. YouTube WORKING! With Opera 12.02

    Sourceforge stopped working for me too a little while back and this even with using Burp Suite as proxy which usually lets me use any https site on which Opera fails. Now it works OK again and I didn't change any settings. Happened with a few other sites which went back to OK again too. I guess something (bug/error) to do with upgrading servers to nginx 1.13.9.
  6. YouTube WORKING! With Opera 12.02

    FileHippo works fine for me with Vanilla Opera 12.02. Nonetheless I tried using the 12.18 css files and it made no difference whatsoever, nothing I could notice anyway. The only difference I have noticed so far is in the look of Opera's internal error pages.
  7. XmPlay and all the official plugins (which includes the Rar plugin) don't need KernelEx at all AFAIK, they still run on vanilla 98SE/ME.
  8. Java 1.6.22 fails on install

    The OP is trying to install update 22 (the last version that should normally install without extra hodge podge) and you are telling him it's more recent than update 31!!!!
  9. Java 1.6.22 fails on install

    Destro, The last Java 6 version is update 45: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-downloads-javase6-419409.html. I have it installed on my machine, it runs fine. Update 22 is not too high of a version, it's older than update 31. And if you don't mind me asking, how do you know the number of people who installed it successfully on 9x? Btw, in case anyone is interested I have JRE & JDK 7 Update 76, JRE & JDK 8 Update 92 and JDK 9 Beta 95 all installed on my machine. 7 appears fully functional, 8 and 9 have some stuff that doesn't work but still usefull as I can run some programs requiring either of those versions specifically.
  10. YouTube WORKING! With Opera 12.02

    Do you use 9x and Opera 12 those days? I bet you don't otherwise you wouldn't do generic comments like that but instead would speak about your first hand experience using the new youtube with Opera 12 on your 9x system...
  11. YouTube WORKING! With Opera 12.02

    Well that was then when you had that system you don't have anymore and when youtube's html5 implementation was in its infancy.
  12. Need help with Config.sys and Autoexec.bat

    I don't care about retro computing and I am not using a 9x system out of any kind of nostalgia so your generalizations don't apply. There are easier and better ways to play Doom on a 9x system than using the original executables which is a pointless exercise in masochism IMO, if you want plain vanilla Doom experience and no more, use Chocolate Doom, if you want more features and the ability to play recent maps, then use limit removing engines such as ZDoom, it's that simple.
  13. Need help with Config.sys and Autoexec.bat

    Why don't you make your life easier and use a modern source port to play Doom? It's better in every way.
  14. YouTube WORKING! With Opera 12.02

    People, which people? For me the html5 player works better/faster than Flash did. VP8/Vorbis only streams since the bundled gstreamer runtime doesn't support newer codecs but that's actually surprisingly fine as far as quality goes.
  15. Yeah, was talking about AGP cards MrMateczko, which, as you mentioned in an earlier post, is likely off topic as the OP appears to have PCI slots only. Typical internet age ADHD makes me sometimes answer topics without actually properly reading the OP... Unless I am wrong there is no PCI-e mobos officially supporting 9x OSes???
