  1. Update notification! My favourite registry editor Registry Workshop has been updated and its current version is now 5.1.0. Link: http://www.torchsoft.com/en/rw_information.html It is still supported in Windows XP, but it's commercial. This program is definitely worth its money. You can try it 30 days for free. Here are the download links of the English and German version 5.1.0 (other language versions are also available): English version: http://www.torchsoft.com/download/RegistryWorkshop.exe German version: http://www.torchsoft.com/download/RegistryWorkshop_deu.exe Cheers, AstroSkipper
  2. My essential tools for solving problems in Windows XP — Part 3 - Text, hex, resource, and registry editors Notepad++: Notepad++ is a text and source code editor for use with Microsoft Windows. It supports tabbed editing, which allows working with multiple open files in a single window. For me, one of the best text editors ever! The last version which has been compatible with Windows XP is Notepad++ 7.9.2. Download link: https://notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/v7.9.2/ HxD: HxD is a carefully designed and fast hex editor which, additionally to raw disk editing and modifying of main memory (RAM), handles files of any size. The easy to use interface offers features such as searching and replacing, exporting, checksums/digests, insertion of byte patterns, a file shredder, concatenation or splitting of files, statistics and much more. HxD is free of charge for private and commercial use. The last version which is compatible with Windows XP is HxD 2.5.0.0. Download links: Installer version: https://mh-nexus.de/downloads/HxDSetup.zip Porrtable version: https://mh-nexus.de/downloads/HxDPortableSetup.zip Resource Hacker: Resource Hacker is a resource editor for 32bit and 64bit Windows® applications. It's both a resource compiler (for *.rc files), and a decompiler - enabling viewing and editing of resources in executables (*.exe; *.dll; *.scr; etc) and compiled resource libraries (*.res, *.mui). While Resource Hacker™ is primarily a GUI application, it also provides many options for compiling and decompiling resources from the command-line. I think Resource Hacker is one of the best in this category.

  3. Very good find! Thanks for your deeper insight and information about the latest developments! You are definitely the expert of repos and commits. I've just tested this setting of uiStyles and it works perfectly. Now, I understand why you didn't observe this issue in your browsers. When I was thinking about a solution for this glitch some weeks ago, I also looked in the advanced settings of uBlock Origin. Unfortunately, I didn't pursue this further because I didn't look at the individual options more closely due to the fact that I didn't know their syntax, either. A look at this page would have greatly simplified my search for a solution: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Advanced-settings Anyway, we have now different solutions to solve this glitch of uBlock Origin's dashboard page, and I have extended my knowledge about CSS.
  4. That should not be a problem at all. If you do not understand what I have written, use an online translation service like DeepL! DeepL Translator In any case, it would be desirable not to spread information that does not correspond to the facts. This only confuses others and is in no way helpful.
  5. Update notification! The article "Mypal 68 on low performance systems with an amount less than 2 GB of RAM" has been updated with regards to a new recommended setting of the variable dom.moduleScripts.enabled. Cheers, AstroSkipper
  6. Did you read my short clarification? There isn't or hasn't been any automatical reset or forced reset of these dummy certificates. Resetting these certificates in the folder Certs always means to delete all of them manually. It doesn't matter which version of ProxHTTPSProxy.
  7. I think I know the reason: the setting you shared (dom.moduleScripts.enabled false) breaks uBlock Origin. It also crashes the browser eventually (I think it's because of uBO as well). Without that setting set to false, I can use uBlock Origin without any problems (But the version is 1.42.4, while it's 1.44.4 in my main PC's browser Firefox 105). Addition: Oh wait, it's because Mypal doesn't support auto-updating of extensions and I installed it before the update. If I reinstall it, then it should work fine too. Unfortunately, you are on the wrong way. It's more hardware related. As I already said, I will post about these problems very soon. @SC7601! I have to correct my statement. You are right! I have retested uBlock Origin 1.44.4 in Mypal 68 and can confirm your observation. Setting the variable dom.moduleScripts.enabled to false breaks the most recent version of uBlock Origin 1.44.4 in Mypal 68.12.5b. This setting was helpful in getting the new interface of VirusTotal to work in previous versions of Mypal 68. But in the latest version Mypal 68.12.5b, it has no positive effect anymore and has become useless. Therefore, I recommend to set the varaiable dom.moduleScripts.enabled back to its default value of true. Kind regards, AstroSkipper
  8. I think I know the reason: the setting you shared (dom.moduleScripts.enabled false) breaks uBlock Origin. It also crashes the browser eventually (I think it's because of uBO as well).

But, as I posted above, ImTranslator is an interesting extension for translating and offers many features. Each to their own! I love the good and simple ones, and that means in my case Simple Translate.
  9. @SC7601! Using ProxHTTPSProxy with browsers that already support TLS 1.2 or 1.3 is not the purpose of it. Generally, these TLS proxies are needed to access Windows Update or Microsoft Update, for example. Or, for updating programs that require the old Internet Explorer. Or, for email programs that cannot set up such connections themselves, e.g. eM Client or Eudora, and so on. But, all this has nothing to do with the fact that you actually just wanted to test my software package on a time-period correct system. Didn't it? BTW, you can test it with browsers already supporting TLS 1.2 and 1.3, too. Anyway, it was your suggestion! Cheers, AstroSkipper
  10. You're welcome! OT: BTW, what about your offer weeks ago? uBlock Origin is my favourite ad blocker extension. Unfortunately, there is a real problem with its compatibility, Therefore, I can't use the more recent ones in Mypal 68 on my old system. I'll post about these problems very soon. The extension Simple Translate is easy to use and works perfectly. Of course, I know the extension ImTranslator as well. I use it in the New Moon 28. The quality of the translations is better in Simple Translate, though, and ImTranslator is much too bloated for my taste. Basically, ImTranslator is an interesting extension for translating and offers many features. Anyway, to each their own! I recommend Simple Translate: https://msfn.org/board/topic/183657-mypal-68-in-windows-xp-custom-buttons-and-extensions/?do=findComment&comment=1225646 The advantage of Adblocker Ultimate is that it works like a charme in Mypal 68 from the very first, and its most recent version is compatible with my system. BTW, most of the ad blocker use the same filters like Adguard's lists, Easylist, Fanboy's lists, and so on. uBlock Origin does it, too. Kind regards, AstroSkipper
  11. @ward201185! Such comments without any indication of which operating system you are referring to are useless to other readers. Only the initiated can see that you actually mean Windows 2000. On the subject of dummy certificates in ProxHTTPSProxy's Certs subfolder, a brief clarification: Cheers, AstroSkipper
  12. Just a reminder! Any changes to an installation of ProxHTTPSProxy or HTTPSProxy, especially the installation of a new CA certificate, or severe crashes of the system while one of the proxies was running in the background, always requires a reset of all dummy certificates in the Certs subfolder. The word "reset" at this point means deleting all certificates manually that have been created in the Certs folder. The next time the proxy is started correctly, all necessary certificates will be created again when the corresponding websites are accessed. Renaming or saving the Certs folder is completely unnecessary. Cheers, AstroSkipper
  13. This is an old, well-known error! For more information: BTW, it doesn't matter whether XP or Vista. Getting the error code 0x80072f8f while accessing the WU/MU website using ProxHTTPSProxy always means to install its CA certificate to Trusted Root Certification Authority under the account local computer. Cheers, AstroSkipper
  14. Modding to the user's needs, when official support weakens, is great! Isn't it?
  15. You can adjust that by editing the CSS code. Have a look into the CSS reference! At the moment, there is no other way. No extension like Classic Theme Restorer for the legacy browsers Serpent 52 or Firefox 52! Frankly, I do not need that. My tab bar will stay above the address bar. Cheers, AstroSkipper
  16. @Anbima! Two posts above I provided a solution how to move the tab bar below the bookmarks bar, more or less only for you. What about that? Do you think it is much fun to post solutions without any feedback? Instead of responding to such solutions in any way, I can only read one of your next questions. Maybe, you should just rethink about it! Cheers, AstroSkipper
  17. Hello @VistaLover! I've tested this beta version 1.16.4.31b2 of uBlock Origin in a fresh, clean profile, and unfortunately, it causes the same issue as the official version 1.16.4.30. When clearing the browser's cache and opening the dashboard, you should see the issue in the top of the page. Tested in New Moon 28 (2022-09-09). Kind regards, AstroSkipper
  18. Hello @XPerceniol! I already noticed that you haven't been around here for nearly a week. Hope all is well with you and wish you the very best! Friendly greetings from Germany! AstroSkipper
  19. @Anbima! This thread is dedicated to the 360Chrome browsers. Here you'll find the answer to your request about Mypal 68: Cheers, AstroSkipper
  20. @Anbima! Here is the answer to your request about the position of the tab bar: Greetings, AstroSkipper
  21. Move the tab bar below the bookmarks bar After some changes in the past, the tab bar was moved above the address bar as its new default position. To revert this change in Mypal 68, you have to modify the file userChrome.css. Requirements: Download package MYPAL_68_CB_requirements.7z in the first post of this thread. Read carefully what I wrote about Custom Buttons requirements in Mypal 68! After closing Mypal 68, add the following code to the file userChrome.css at its end: #TabsToolbar { position: absolute; display: block; bottom: 0; width: 100vw; background-clip: padding-box; color: var(--toolbar-color); } #tabbrowser-tabs { width: 100vw; } #navigator-toolbox { position: relative; padding-bottom: calc( var(--tab-min-height) + 8px ); } #main-window[tabsintitlebar][sizemode="maximized"]:not([inDOMFullscreen="true"]) #titlebar { height: 36px; } .titlebar-buttonbox-container { position: fixed; right: 0; visibility: visible; display: block; } #TabsToolbar .titlebar-buttonbox-container, #TabsToolbar #window-controls { display: none; } Start the browser again, and you should notice the tab bar is located below the address and bookmarks bar from now on. Cheers, AstroSkipper
  22. I used github-wc-polyfill for a longer time. Unfortunately, there wasn't any activity since April. Therefore, I changed completely to palefill a few months ago. And, I am totally happy with that.
  23. Of course! I can write PMs in any language I want to use. But, that wasn't the intention of my statement! PM is meant for personal or private communication, and that isn't the case here. I generally do not answer questions on the topic of a thread via PM. I did that once, and I will never do it again. Any requests and their answers or solutions to technical problems should be posted in the appropriate threads so that others can participate and benefit from them.
  24. Read my article! BTW, MSFN is an English-speaking forum only! Therefore unfortunately, no!
