  1. Wasn't windows 98 released after windows NT listed by hotnuma?
  2. XP Updates2.zip ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ It's here, right on the 1st post! All linked to wayback machine in this post.
  3. Glad I didn't even have time to update yesterday...
  4. This soundtrack reminds me of Japanese Action Videogame soundtrack... Nothing less, nothing more
  5. So Microsoft don't give a crap to even offer it to home users... We'll lay our hands on 'em updates anyway, MSFN collaborative mind has experience in it...
  6. 1. Which version of Firefox do you use? 2. Which website do you refer to? 3. do you install POSReady 2009 updates or not?
  7. And, TBH, I've been reading how-to-geek some time ago regularly, but somewhen they started their review geek sub-section, and I feel they they've turned from help and guide articles into being big advertising tube. Now their articles are more "old is bad, new is good" themed, and argumentation "it's official, so it MUST be working better than replacement". And as for this particular article, I can agree that PM and Basilisk are slower than quantum-based Firefox, which anyone can test on his own PC, but the author also mentions security risk involved in using PM and Basilisk... and then it would be cool if he mentioned any real vulnerability that is present in Basilisk or PM, and not in the recent Firefox ESR. And last but not least, many of roytam1's builds suers were with Firefox 52ESR for as long as it was supported. We're in XP board, and there is no official alternative for this system. Remember that
  8. Hi, welcome, and have a good time asking and helping around
  9. I come from the retro-gaming world, where Rymdreglage, Swedish totally independent, totally non-commercial duo is best know for their 8-bit trip Music Video. Totally recommend. However, when you check their portfolio, they will have much more to offer. Except some songs and videos that are supposed to be funny, but are crappy in fact, they published a lot of cool songs, mainly chiptues, totally woth listening. some with their own awesome MVs too:
  10. I don't have XP 64, so i tested on windows 7. as roytam1 said, please use compat mode in about:config. I personally needed to enable all 3 (webgl, gecko and firefox compats). PS never expected to stumble upon geoportal on this site...
  11. I am grateful and cannot ask for more from you. Still, I am disappointed by TW devs and their communication with users. Please keep these things separate
  12. We are still speaking about a software, that claims support for windows XP, not for all versions released after XP Because TW notified me about that after an update caused TeamViewer Service to crash and it continued after every system reboot and after every attempt to run the software. Because TW didn't warn me about potential issue while I was prompted to update. Because TW didn't warn me when I manually installed newest version. Because their system requirements does not say that, their website does not say that. Only support board, where you need to know what are you looking for. Because most of the internet still uses ipv4, and see no reason why home user should have ipv6 installed in his local network - even f it's by default, it probably lies useless. Because secure user might follow the rule "if you do not use - uninstall it" and remove it even on newer windows. This rule isn't some geeky trick, this is one of three basic security rules by mr. Krebs. Because their installer could recognize if I have ipv6 installed, and install it on it's own - after all it has given enough permissions do do so. Because they recognized the issue soon after releasing an update from 13.0.6447 to never one, and nine months is enough to give a birth, and they still didn't give a ... requisite to giving a birth and didn't fix the bug and fail to inform users before they install a software. They didn't even reply with "no, we do not plan to fix it", which is what I would require from serious, renowned company, that treats its users fairly.
  13. Sure, I know there is a workaround, but what about fixing the software itself?
  14. Probably as long as I'm not a business user that can sue them, they will not care. I'm not even a paid user
  15. Unfortunately, it still crashes under both 13.2.26558.0 and 14.1.3399.0. There is a topic on their board explaining this particular issue. If you want to reproduce, disable ipv6 on your XP machines and turn your TeamViewer into Accept incoming only in Local Network exclusively. Not sure if I should post another one, expecting TAT for a resolution of year-old known issue o.O.
  16. Yep, my first thought was also buying old, used computer, or some older model, but new unit. Whatever that was designed to run XP, and can work out of the box.
  17. Never used Mac, Really. Welcome anyway
  18. Sure, thanks for answer. I thought the opposite way - it's hard to find valuable information in ~1500 post thread, where different issues are mixed together. So maybe we should put separate topic for different issues and persuade you this way? Obviously kidding. anyway, decision is on your side.
  19. Because as we all know, the only pre-installed game on windows that ever mattered is Minesweeper. Period
  20. Which means that Win10 Mobile received (will recelive? grammar fairy help me!) much longer security patch support than most of Android devices in existence
  21. Ooki, thanks both Will test newest TV 14.1.3399.0 on my XP machine soon
  22. As in the topic, are there any realiable TH forks for Windows XP? Just like BasiliskXPmod/ New Moon for the browsers? All i need is to receive security updates after thunderbird jumped onto FF 60 ESR fork.
  23. Hi, but which TV is the latest one that supports XP natively? I'm still sticking with 13.0.6447 on XP, due to IPv4 bug that caused it to crash on later 13.X vesrions, and I'd like to know if anyone tried the latest 13.x if it works on XP.
  24. Ok, so if adding a language pack to Basilisk UXP will be a case of modifying XML file, i might be able to handle that. The problem is where should I start, any noobies hints? where the documentation lies? Which files should I modify? Mozilla pages about that I found are way to vague... Other case (more important) is a dictionary. I can live with Basilisk running in English, but Polish dictionary is a muss for me. I can download it via native add-on manager in Basilisk, but it cannot be opened. Anyone tried to work it out? Ok, I found this one out myself- it was enough to copy polish dictionary files from firefox 52 ESR to Basilisk 'dictionary' folder.
