  1. It depends where there is some official way to initiate "go back" action. There is undocumented WinAPI message, but Microsoft changes the message ID with every new build. But I'm not even sure if it makes sense to maintain glass frame for UWP apps, because blur effect is already there.
  2. I think it would be good to look properly at first (I already wrote in Firefox topic that moz-glass-win property works now only when WebRender is disabled) instead of posting off-topic stuff into unrelated topic.
  3. And the text in the message box is written unintelligibly ?
  4. Could you test with this build: http://glass8.eu/out/19h1_18362_1607_x64dbg.7z
  5. The same happens on Opera. I guess it is because hardware acceleration is enabled on Windows 10 only thus compatibility mode disables it.
  6. There are two settings (about:config ... gfx.webrender.all.qualified but the value needs to be changed directly in prefs.js) in FF67. If they are not present or set to "false", "moz-win-glass" value is accepted correctly. The problem is that these settings are reset back to "true" after several restarts.
  7. I don't know Pale Moon but I guess it is just a port of old Firefox. The question is if the statement "there would be visual glitches on Windows 10 without custom caption bar drawing" is true why these glitches does not appear in any other application except browsers (+thunderbird) that try to imitate Chrome behaviour; why these glitches does not appear on any other DWM-based OS (WinVista, Win7, Win8, Win8.1 - where rendering is exactly same) and why these glitches did not appear in versions before adopting Chrome look. Maybe, we should highlight that this look does not correspond to Fluent design
  8. Thanks for your report. Does it generate minidump file on the crash? Please post it.
  9. Yeah, there are some workarounds how to achieve it, but I mean that it should be supported natively. Or better, in fact, there is really no need to have some kind of support for Aero Glass - it is satisfactory that all browsers will give up that stupid trend where they disable system native titlebar and render its own titlebar (imitating the same look as system one) on Windows 10 (what's the point to remove something and replace it with something which imitates the removed thing?). It is really mysterious why this wrong behaviour has been implemented for Windows 10 only and it works correctly on any other system. I guess that this trend comes from Win10's UWP applications that do exactly the same (replace default DWM-rendered titlebar with its own GDI rendered parody).
  10. Sometime ago, I reported this issue into Mozilla's bug tracker, but it seems it was completely ignored. Now, on FF 67, on my work computer, Aero Glass in FF still works correctly but on my home computer the CSS property "moz-win-glass" is ignored. Maybe if more users report this issue to Mozilla, some developer will care about it. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1418759
  11. You have to use older version of Aero Glass to change the blur radius of non-aeroglass blur area. This feature has been temporarily disabled in the last version, because it had a few weird side effects. It may be added back later.
  12. It sometimes takes a while for PayPal to propagate its information to our server, so please be patient if you don't get any e-mail immediately after your donation.
  13. Yes. If you use installer, it provides you an option to select which mode to use. If you install manually, then Accent mode is used by default (with opacity = 4).
  14. To have acrylic effect, you must configure it on your own: http://glass8.eu/out/changelogRS2.txt Acrylic effect is nothing more then blurred background + transparent color over it + transparent noise texture over it.
  15. No, I checked the database and the donation key from your debug.log has been generated for different machine code.
  16. You are right, there seems to be bug. However, it seems that the stability fixes introduced in the most recent beta version address this issue too.
  17. Donation key is valid only for the computer configuration which it has been generated for.
  18. The exception information can be logged in event log, but it probably contains only value 0x8000FFFF, because the code just calls ModuleFailFastForHRESULT(0x8000FFFF) in this situation. As to debugging, if I use virtual machine, I can connect remote debugger to it and debug the assembly normally as any other application. But for local debugging, I can use only printf logs (or dump file for crashes), because attaching the debugger to DWM stops the desktop rendering .
  19. The exception code probably means nothing special. Whenever any function returns HRESULT different from S_OK, DWM throws the exception with this code. The most important is the exception structure member "ExceptionInformation" which contains HRESULT value.
  20. DWM crashes with this code are not Aero Glass related. It probably happens when video adapter driver is disconnected and it randomly happens even without Aero Glass for a few last Win10 builds (but it is probably less noticable without Aero Glass which has some delay when it tries to generate minidump file on crash). About Fast Startup problem.. yes, there is some problem that Win10 behaves inconsistently between normal and fast startup. In fact, Win10 "Fast Startup" feature is one of the most buggy thing in Win10 and it is responsible for many "random" problems. For this reason, I disable it on every installation. As a workaround for current build, you could set this registry value: HKLM/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/DWM - DWORD GeometryCommand value set to 0x1cc.
  21. The mail with instructions was send to your e-mail address, but it returned that the mailbox is inaccessible. Sorry, but I cannot be responsible when someone specifies invalid e-mail address. In any case, you can always read and follow the instructions in the local topic "READ FIRST".
  22. It crashes with certain video drivers only, I already have a fix, but I didn't have time to make it ready it yet.
  23. Your password is attached in the e-mail only when it is your first donation. If it is not the first donation, the password is not there because it is not stored anywhere. You can always log in using your postal code from your PayPal or request new password from the link at the login page.
  24. Do you use default Aero Glass theme or some specific theme?
