  1. This just started with Serpent 52 and 55 in the last week or so. I don't know why Twitter rejects the most recent user string when it's with the Serpent versions but accepts it if you use an older one. Youtube does the same thing. Good to see Moonchild is on the case but I suspect at some point these older versions will get the IE11 treatment regardless of what user string we give them.
  2. Twitter is having firefox fits again. Using the latest release+ user string I'm getting this message in 52 and 55: "Something went wrong, but don’t fret — let’s give it another shot." Changing the string to this and it comes in again: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0
  3. Those posts are always fun to read. Moonchild says that a browser is a tool as they all plan to destroy what makes it a useful tool so they can move forward into the "modern" era. Did I get that right? --:) Whatever changes they make can probably be reverted here (it's those MSFN Hackers) so it should only affect them. Also, it's for Pale Moon only right and firefox addons should keep working in 52 regardless?
  4. This is the only text in shield-preference-experiments.json: {"experiments":{}} Mozilla firefox is like one of the those can't live with or without, it's still far better than chrome for certain things like customization. I just wish they would leave it alone and let us use it. It's one of the main reasons I enjoy this Serpent version. Their obsession with the ui and constantly changing it and removing options turns people off and is a big reason users move on from it.
  5. Ok I narrowed down the problem with the sticking mouse wheel. I thought it was google voice at first but usually I'll check both google and hotmail together. It turns out that it's hotmail seemingly causing the problem. After each visit page scrolling begins sticking and I'm forced to reboot the browser. This started recently after microsoft began messing around with the website.
  6. If you have 7-zip installed right click archive to edit install.rdf. Where you see: <Description> <em:id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</em:id> <em:minVersion>52.9.2020.10.05</em:minVersion> <em:maxVersion>52.9.2021.*</em:maxVersion> Change it to this: <Description> <em:id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</em:id> <em:minVersion>48.0</em:minVersion> <em:maxVersion>55.0</em:maxVersion> That should let you install it in
  7. It's a very small file, only 18 bytes. Kind of strange they linked that with about:support in the profile but nothing they do surprises me anymore.
  8. Can anyone test this? Whenever going to google voice lately with 52 right afterwards the mouse scrolling starts to stick and I’m forced to reboot the browser. It always seemed to do that following a visit to about:addons, even firefox 52 but now it’s happening with certain websites as well. It’s not a problem with Serpent 55 so it may be version-related.
  9. That was a recent problem I came upon as well. After some testing with a fresh profile there's a new file called "shield-preference-experiments.json" that has to be there to get all of about:support (at least with v88.0, haven't tested with v87.0). If the current profile isn't automatically generating it then try creating a new profile and then copying that file into the profile where it it isn't.
  10. If you’ve been working computers a while like me then you probably remember a great little program called OpenExpert. In win2k and XP it adds a context menu item that then lets you easily pick and choose the programs to open your files with. It’s way better than the native option. It does install in Windows 7 but only if you do so prior to the installation of SP1. So you do a fresh install of bare Windows 7 then immediately install OpenExpert. After that, you can apply all of the OS updates normally.
  11. Classic Shell, now Open Shell is the first program that gets installed, just hope that it keeps working with 21H2. Not the least bit interested in Microsoft's modern start menus.
  12. Same here. I seldom even boot up into it except to install their usual buggy updates. Some really annoying changes are probably small potatoes to a lot of people, but they add up. For instance, when switching accounts without logging off if the current account has music playing it stops when you log into the other account. To me that is just stupid, it never did that in prior OSs but if Microsoft thinks that it should then why not provide the user with an option? Another one is the ability to place icons in the order you want in the folder, they are alphabetical, take it or leav
  13. You're lucky to get by with only two, in Serpent I've got 36 of them and all of them are used frequently. It's actually surprising that the browser even opens.
  14. Currently using three of JustOff's addons and he's keeping up with the most important one, uBlock. They don't even make any money for their work, all they get are complaints, even some on that thread as we see with jacobliu1234. He's free to use chrome if he wants "modern" standards. The way I've seen google lately they're actually dragging internet choice and freedom down, not moving it forward.
  15. It looks like Microsoft is bringing their Github changes to Hotmail. So far messages are coming in but eventually we'll need a polyfill extension the way they take forever to load now and have that wavy gray strip for each one.
