  1. Ewwww - I have no idea. I keep my own backups of the updates, so I hardly used his library. @greenhillmaniac, care to chime in?
  2. Look through this thread. @greenhillmaniac maintains a site that has all of the updates.
  3. KB5000840 is available from the Microsoft Catalog
  4. You have certainly helped @VistaLover. And that was my thinking that if they stay on official Basilisk for the meantime, they will be fine. They don't stray to different sites all that much. No online banking is done AT ALL. When it comes time to switch to Serpent, there aren't many passwords they store at all, So I don't worry about that in the least bit whatsoever.
  5. Sure less calls, but now they can't run their Flash games. Just like the new CD player won;t spin their 78s (just a joke but you see what I mean?) In this case, not teaching a old dog new tricks is letting them compute like it's 2005. Oh wait, that's the same mandate as MSFN :p (kidding ......lol)
  6. Nope not stepping on toes at all. Here's what the situation is. My parents are in their late 70s. They migrated from a failing Windows XP machine to an i5 based Windows 7 machine. Now they used to play all sorts of 16-bit Windows games (ala Windows Entertainment Pack from the 1990s). These just worked on XP, so I wasn't about to just teach my folks how to use DOSBox and run customized Win 3x sessions for each game, or even set up Windows 3.1 in a virtual DOSBox for them to use - just too confusing. So I had the vendor preload Windows 7 x86 (and it's a sad thing too because he inadver
  7. So let me make sure that I understand this. I have my mom and dad set up with 32-bit official Basilisk on Windows 7. Now that x86 development has stopped, at some point I will need to move them to Serpent 52 if they are to stay up to date. If I do so, will the news about Firefox legacy add-on changes mean that at some point, Classic Theme Restorer will stop working, even if I used an older version, with a version-modified install.rdf included?
  8. Here's the thread on it. https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?t=26204&p=208720
  9. Sure does - don't forget the download link says that the file was deleted
  10. Hey @BYTE-ME Is there a comprehensive list of what the tweaks are? I have a mostly "perfectly" working system, and want to keep installation/uninstallation to an absolute minimum. Cheers! EDIT - Ooops - the file download is gone
  11. What he heck does that first line mean? I simply asked a question. I don't have time to go through pages of a thread, just to ask a simple question, so sorry about being "superficial". My lord! EDIT: (and yes I saw the smilies, but I abhore the tone of your comment. I don't need to concern myself with differences between source code and "versions". Pale Moon v29 was apparently a milestone release, and I checked the last builds that Roytam1 submitted. I never saw any 29x issues, so I asked. That's NOT spreading misinformation, and I look upon any inference in the slightest to that
  12. Just curious. Are you guys moving at to any of the new 29x releases? Can this be recompiled for XP/Vista compatibility?
  13. You should (in my mind) leave your original post intact, because now our responses make less sense for someone else stumbling across this in the future.
  14. Well it could be a number of things: Vista had the first implementation of Superfetch, and even with SP2 could be sluggish at relinquishing RAM to apps that called for it. Try disabling it (but keep Prefetch enabled) Is your graphics adapter adept at rendering Aero and transparency? You could try the Windows Basic theme. Do you have a lot of widgets loaded? Perhaps turn those off. There is a registry setting (I think it's EnablePrefetchParameters) that can allow you to disable Superfetch, but keep Prefetch enabled. I'm a bit tired right now, but I'm sure someone c
  15. But at this point IE 11 is becoming useless. Twitter no longer works and YouTube will be not supported soon (I'm pretty sure of that anyway) I think that Edge will maintain support for somewhat longer, I hope.
