  1. My understanding is they are betas or something similar to nightlies pending the release of an updated version. I am not exactly sure but the last official Basilisk release may have been in March?? Again not positive but eventually there will be a new one minus Roy's changes to work with XP.
  2. Ok that looks better. --) Wonder how long before Mozilla starts complaining about copyright or something.
  3. This is what I have for 60esr: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0 That's Waterfox's current string?
  4. Speaking of Waterfox, if anyone uses it could you please be so kind as to post its user agent string? I have several that I like keeping up to date and use for various reasons but Waterfox eludes me since it can't be installed on my lowly 32-bit computer: Googling for it brings up at least two different versions; one is probably right but which is it: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:56.0; Waterfox) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.2.7 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:65.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/65.0 Waterfox/56.2.7
  5. It's not a problem anymore. The Lightning version on TB 52.9 is 5.4.9 and when I opened mailnews with the TB profile it wanted an older version of 3.00 something. But that was from a mailnews version a few weeks ago. I tried the latest one from last Friday and 5.4.9 was working and it didn't ask for an older version. There's also a new addon: google calender, which was disabled.
  6. Instead of creating a new profile I just made a copy of the one from Thunderbird 52.9 then opened MailNews using that. The only problem I ran into was it wanted an older version of Lightning but everything else worked good.
  7. No not really other than any additional security updates to the program, some of which I assume are being ported to MailNews. I do use it on Win 7 and functionally it doesn't do much more than 52, all of the same legacy addons still work. It's the transition to quantum that all but makes porting the newer firefox versions impossible and chances are I wouldn't use it much anyway even if it they could manage it.
  8. Still using Thunderbird 52.9.1 on XP but I did try MailNews and the accounts migrated fine. What's interesting is that moebius (firefox 53) works on XP and W2k. There were call function problems that kept us from using it on these OSs since it was designed for Win7+ but obviously these were overcome. I would think the same then could be done for Thunderbird 60esr depending on how many additional call functions were added that XP could not load. Not that I want to give Roy any more work, just wanted to throw that out there that the newer versions probably could be made to run.
  9. Had the same problem, wouldn't start. Reverted back to the old one.
  10. The end of the line for XP yesterday and POSReady 2009 support. Microsoft dumped a bunch of last minute patches and since I hadn't bothered to update since last December there were a total of 34 to install. So far running no problem and the good part was many of those patches were able to be ported to W2k thanks to blackwingcat. No doubt this will get the internet XP haters really blowing their tops at any mention of someone still using XP but with basilisk UXP but there's some life left. :--).
  11. @Alex, glad it works for you, for me not so much. The problem seems to be more about the extra process plugin-container.exe than the primetime codec itself, sometimes crashing when pausing the video or moving to another site. I also believe it's responsible for the choppiness since it did the same thing with flash after they removed the ability to disable OOPP. It's a little better in 52esr compared to earlier FF versions but I'll take what comes with basilisk if I've got a choice.
  12. There is some occasional audio choppiness that I'm getting with the built-in decoder. I chalked it up to the typically horrible Road Runner connection but if it's the codec it's still far better than plugin-container, which I have always found to be far worse and unreliable. There's a huge playback difference between the two decoders with some other sites besides youtube. This one for example: https://globalnews.ca/ The prime time plugin is unbelievably choppy and unusable while the built-in decoder renders smoothly. It probably comes down to each person's system configuration and the processing power of their computer.
  13. For Moebius to get Primetime working, in addition to the prefs that have to be added in along with the gmp-eme-adobe folder there's a couple of obscure prefs that have to be changed back. Apparently even when copying over the profile from UXP to Moebius they're automatically given new values: media.gmp.decoder.aac media.gmp.decoder.h264 Change these from 0 to 2. Primetime instructions: https://msfn.org/board/topic/175591-enable-mp4-h264-aac-html5-video-in-firefox-on-windows-xp-without-flash/ Fortunately for me the built-in decoder works fine and is much preferable to using the buggy plugin-container.exe but it's an extra option to have just in case.
  14. Thanks to Roy for restoring container tabs in UXP, it saves me the trouble of opening another browser but on a side note their temporary removal did get me to try out the moebius version and now I've got two nice running browsers to play around with. --:)
  15. Currently running Roy's moebius build from last Saturday and all four of my webextensions are disabled, with no option to enable. Is there a setting in about:config I'm missing? This supports the container tabs extension so it would make a good backup when I need it. Edit: ok reinstalled them and now they're back, so that's good news. I'm actually using this version on W2k at the moment and it handles nicely.
