  1. It's a zip archive containing files from currently installed Firefox extensions. It is created to make the browser startup faster. There is NO private info there. If you delete it on your browser close, it will be created again on the browser start, so deleting is just a waste of time. However, you may need to delete the startup cache it if you have problems with some extension or if you hack extensions on your own.
  2. Read about Fiji and Morocco here: https://www.timeanddate.com/news/time/fiji-starts-dst-2020.html https://www.timeanddate.com/news/time/morocco-changes-clocks-2019.html Fiji seems to stop using DST - now DST will be only in 4 summer weeks. Morocco moved to EU time zone (for economic reasons), then restored Sun time for Ramadan (for religious reasons).
  3. Just checked WU and it worked again with no problem - with patched dll mentioned earlier:
  4. Well, installation in a virtual machine is not a fully clean installation… Or am I wrong?
  5. Is this Windows installation tweaked in any way? Did you install MSI 4.5 (WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe)?
  6. The files contain only certificates with different timestamps, there is no specific metadata with global timestamp inside. The updater always shows timestamps taken from the server. If you re-upload any old file, it will have a new timestamp.
  7. The last (third) screenshot is new, see the date 8/3/2020 (August 3).
  8. That's not true. There are two unchanged files: roots.sst is the same as it was 2 years ago, dated 2018-04-18; disallowedcert.sst is the same as it was a year ago, dated 2019-08-13. They were just freshly copied to that download server, other servers may still keep old copies.
  9. How do you want to do it? You can't change any WU client file - they must have valid digital signatures.
  10. @max-h I mean function available as a shell extension. Right click the cab file in Windows Explorer, then select its properies from the context menu and you will understand…
  11. Signature checking function provided in Windows XP works only for files less than 512 MiB.
  12. Wrong address. It's here (HTTP, not HTTPS): http://www.update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/default.aspx Edit: I can connect to WU, but there's error 0x80244019 when trying to search for updates.
  13. Well, finally I understood what MS did to KB4507704 for Windows XP Embedded. It's an update by downgrade described using corporate newspeak ;-) You should just read list of updates here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/914387/how-to-configure-daylight-saving-time-for-microsoft-windows-os in reverse order: 1. Go to May 2019 update - it's KB4501226 described here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4501226/dst-changes-in-windows-for-morocco-and-palestinian-authority As you should know, there was an update for Windows XP Embedded, but now it's removed. Explanation is in t
  14. KB4507704 is still available for Windows 7. I downloaded it yesterday. It's in *.msu file so it should be repacked to use in Windows XP. It looks like there is only update for time zones and their names in all available language packs (plus manifests, certificates, hashes and other bureaucracy).
  15. Do you need update for time zones only or anything else? I can save registry entry for time zones from Windows 7 and share it…
