  1. @roytam1 Do you have the complete source of NM28 online somewhere? I need to fix a problem specific to my CPU that is keeping me on 27. (For some reason NM28, or any 52.x-based browser for that matter, doesn't like my dual-Xeon setup too much. I tried git-applying the patches, but they don't want to apply.
  2. @roytam1 Have you run into certificate issues? I checked the Mozilla CA file in NSS and there are no root certificates in that file that are not in ours. I get this issue in both Win98 and my Win2k dev machine, both with BlackWingCat's root certificate update for 2018 installed. Do not have an XP+ machine with RZ to test on, but I don't think that will matter, as I have a semi-recent version of SeaMonkey working on Win2k with the updated kernel with no certificate issues.
  3. Yes. The version of Mozilla that Classilla is forked from is older than ours.

    Modern Browser Project 2018

    Has anyone tried running that custom Pale Moon over on the XP forum with KEX? And yes, some of the changes could be backported. Right now, one of the major problems on RZ (at least in my experience using it while not developing it) is some security/cert issues. I have been getting errors and warnings a lot more lately, that's probably the next big thing to be fixed. I'm still thinking of the best way to do rendering. The Mozilla graphics rendering engine switched between 2.x and 3.x, so I have to think about how to go about it. CSS/HTML shims are a possibility going forward, as well as possibly including NoScript and enabling it by default.

    Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    Just came across this today, it seems that people are finally waking up to Windows 10's true intentions (which we had known since before it even came out).
  6. Not sure, didn't really test it that much as SeaMonkey is my default browser on that machine. However, on my high-powered XP machine, I did notice an improvement over Fx52 ESR. (This machine has 2x octa-core Xeons and 16 GB of RAM) I don't know if this benefit will be noticeable on more modest machines. I don't have easy access to a vanilla 2k installation at the moment, but I assume that it wouldn't work. Pale Moon was forked from Gecko 38, which was a lot newer than native 2000 support. (The drop in support was due to a change in MSVC versions used to compile it) The BWC kernel adds a lot of functions and newer MSVC support. This 2000 installation was running on a Pentium 4 2.4GHz with 1GB of RAM. It is an upgraded Dell Dimension system, however I do not remember which one.
  7. I can now verify that New Moon works on Windows 2000 with BlackWingCat's extended kernel.
  8. Could you try building an installer? https://developer.palemoon.org/Developer_Guide:Build_Instructions/Pale_Moon/Windows#head:Generating_the_installer
  9. It's not working for me, it's complaining about GdiGradientFill in GDI32.DLL.
  10. 2.1 is out! I changed many of the default security popup dialogs ("you are entering/leaving a secure site") to be disabled by default, as most people consider them to be annoying, I disabled the sidebar opening every time you search from the urlbar, added the StartPage search engine (Google results without the tracking), added a few urlbar keywords to search easier, and added an update notification to the default home page. Any issues please let me know. Download RetroZilla 2.1
  11. A lot of progress is being made on the stopgap release before I get to updating Gecko. I am planning on dropping 2.1 within the next few days, possibly as early as tonight. Has a few improvements, especially in the realm of search and a few security-related prefs. These fixes are all already in the codebase, roytam1's patches will be applied to the next release, the reason behind this is to get another release out quicker and allow for more further testing and development of the patches. (I may apply those patches in a 2.2 release, or just hold off for 3.x, depending on how certain things go.)
  12. Just tried it out and it's great, the native 64-bit version works and is fast, and it is extremely customizable. I found a Netscape 4/Mozilla Classic theme right away and installed TreeStyleTabs and it works just like my SeaMonkey install. (maybe once RetroZilla stabilizes a bit, I will work on a project that I will dub MoonSuite XP- an XP-compatible Pale Moon based SeaMonkey) Here's my setup if anyone's interested:
  13. Nice, I'm gonna try this out when I get home tonight, see how it compares to Firefox 52/SM 2.48. Would you know the comparative Gecko version of new Moon?
  14. Yep. Windows 95 is an operating system I test RetroZilla on extensively, and I will delay release if RZ is not working properly on it.
  15. The official source tree. If the tree built by VC6 works on NT3.51, we could try to backport the TLS patches to build on VC6 and add NT3.51 to the supported OS list.
