  1. Welcome back! Perhaps your operaprefs file has the read-only attribute. Try also this. In your profile folder, you serach operaprefs.ini and manually add this string into [User Prefs] section: Custom User-Agent=Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv: Gecko/20081217 Firefox/
  2. I desire to save into web.archive the update packages still offers to download in my localized language, to prevent a possible future unpleasant surprise when (if) MS will remove them. Could anyone kindly provide me a current reliable list of the relevant updates post SP2 for Vista?
  3. Open regedit -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Graphics Filters\Import\JPEG Make sure that Extension string contains only the JPG value. In case, you delete other value (e.g. JPEG).
  4. Just a question. Aren't the new cyphers inside opera.dll? Is (e.g. sourceforge.net) available with this "configuration"?
  5. Hi! I'm sorry, but i don't know IDM. I cannot compare them. Anyway, I have just found the limitation of the free version: http://web.archive.org/web/20140716212406/http://www.metaproducts.com/mp/DE_Advanced.asp?id=18 Judge if you need it
  6. Forget it... recapctha is schizophrenic, stopped working again.
  7. I don't know if it will last... but i have just discovered that recaptcha backs to work into Opera!
  8. Oh no, standard Download Express is free. All the releases. Look here for the final version and details: http://web.archive.org/web/20140606102223/http://www.metaproducts.com:80/mp/mpProducts_Detail.asp?id=18
  9. Hi, what you want is Download Express by Metaproducts. Also runs with Windows 95.
  10. Hi Diamant. The only intention of my previous report was for academic demonstration that the issue is also due to artificial limitation. Have you tried with the same video that i indicated above? Another link that works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4An1BrG2u_4 I noticed that if i copy the address (right click on the video window in a browser that works) of some videos (those that can be seen changing the value), they have this format: https://r3---sn-hpa7znse.googlevideo.com/videoplayback? + more parameters (only for vp8 encoded videos?) Other videos haven't a http URL, but mediasource: + alphanumeric string (only vp9 / mse codec?). These are the videos on which the change has no effect. In the first category i found personal video (e.g. No commercial song here) and, once the address has been identified, we can watch this videos also only using the embedded HTML5 player of Firefox or Opera. Now, a lawful (i believe) and sufficiently fast way to watch youtube's videos directly (when so avalaible) that i can suggest is as follows. Using the Y2mate service through a custom search engine (i used Opera, as in the example image), you just copy the ID video and search it. The Y2mate's page contains different options for obtain audio or video files, but, if avalaible, an WEBM option with a download button. Selecting it, without waiting for the entire download, Opera starts the video (or only audio) streaming. Please, test it and report your feedback
  11. Opera 12.02 doesn't work anymore. But, unlike Firefox has only an inactive checkbox, Opera opens the challenge window, but doesn't show the picture, only a blank frame, and the buttons don't work. Any hope of workaround using a test audio? What's your opinion?
  12. I don't know if exists a specific extension for firefox. Just to be clear, like opera and its internal editor html. I only changed the value, saving the page on the disk as complete page, and opening the html file with notepad. An update about this thing: unfortunately, i noticed that doesn't work with all videos (copyright limitation (like embedded videos)?)
  13. The Youtube's block is also artificially created... This is into html code :html5_disable_vp8_only_browsers=true Changing this value from true to false, currently, the video playback runs again. I've tested it now with Firefox 10 on Windows 2000 and this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGonRkSiwb0
  14. I believe that an important thing for an eventual new project moderm browser is the recapcha's (v2) support https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo But today, rather than a new browser, i am absolutely certain that the best option should be to have Opera 12.1x branch capable on Windows 9x. I wonder what is the main reason(s) because so far kernelex (and company) always fails to run it. Is it really impossible?
  15. Backup MyPc from Stomp-Sonic-Roxio manages .qic files as MsBackup (i remember, surely the 5.0 version, also they have same interface). Maybe a copy (but the version is 6.0) is still available here for download: http://www.tucows.com/preview/368095/Backup-MyPC
  16. 11 hours ago, winxpi said: And were you able to play the video without Opera lets say with a media player? For me it only worked inside Opera 12. Yes, only inside Opera. You can follow the loblo suggestion or try a conversion in another video format. Anyway, this is off topic. Maybe, you should to start a new topic.
  17. I don't know with Opera 12, but i can say you that my 11.64 shows the save clip video option without any modification.
  18. Working also in Opera 9.64. I write now through it. Almost everything much better than 11.64. Sign in and sign out (and all other profile and settings options) are possible by default; also with user menù, unlike 11.64.
  19. Good idea Jumper! So it should prevent any future changes to the css name.
  20. Hi all. I have just seen that the workaround doesn't work anymore today, because the IPS custom css is already changed! I have updated my previous post with new modified string to add, so the workaround works again.
  21. After long consultation about the opportunity to propose this workaround and having received positive feedback (thanks Schwups) about it, i report here the "fix" for the benefit of all interested users. Although my suggestion needs the block of a board element (a single CSS), this workaround is only beneficial to users and not detrimental to MSFN, in fact, the advertising box at the top of the page is not affected by it, even better, it come back visible. All you need is add the following string into the list of the embedded block content of Opera: http://www.msfn.org/board/uploads/css_built_39/258adbb6e4f3e83cd3b355f84e3fa002_custom.css.afb11b271d1a29fed825457171bab42e* You can find this list opening the Opera preferences (CRTL+F12) -> advanced -> contents -> block content. After the application, close and reopen the browser. At least, the pages with the theme Shift default are totally readable now, and also the advertising box at the top of the page come back visible.
  22. For the battery monitor: NHC Notebook Hardware Control / Centrino Hardware Control - i don't remember if the older versions run over windows 9x http://www.pbus-167.com/ For the screensaver: nero burning rom Vulcano (opengl) ftp://ftp4.nero.com/vulcano.exe http://www.chip.de/downloads/Nero-Burning-Rom-Screensaver_13010136.html
  23. Hi Schwups. It seems that we are the only ones interested in this. Anyway, i would have found a workaround, using the opera content block. But i'm just not 100% sure if, for the board rules, i'm allowed to write it here. I ask permission to admin before. Can i report it? Thanks This is my actual layout:
