  1. Thanks for the additional feedback... If I were to follow fully @ArcticFoxie 's way-of-doing-things, and let it be documented I have ZERO OBJECTION against, I should feel elated that I can load https://docs.github.com/en/rest/* URIs in both 360EEv11/v12 via blocking (in uBO) ALL scripts originating from "docs.github.com", without any perceivable dent(s) in the pages' expected performance ... However, the little sleuth in me wants my previous query answered: After some trial-and-error, it turns out the sole script responsible for the final page blank-out in said browsers is https://docs.github.com/_next/static/chunks/webpack-af28476a2e7790fd48db.js Blocking just the above script is sufficient for GitHub Docs pages to render fully in 360EEv11 (Ch69-based) and 360EEv12 (Ch78-based); in uB0, I just created the following static filter: ! https://docs.github.com ||docs.github.com/_next/static/chunks/webpack-af28476a2e7790fd48db.js$script,domain=docs.github.com "and whoala" :
  2. Thanks for testing! Unfortunately, I don't use NoScript (is this the one you're using?), nor am I inclined to install it for the sake of just this site... However, your input has been much appreciated ; I think I've achieved a similar effect by denying "scripting" on "docs.github.com" via uBO: and, e.g., https://docs.github.com/en/rest/overview/api-previews loads now in 360EEv12 just fine ! uBO's logger shows that a total of 12 scripts are being blocked, so my understanding is that one (or more) of them are incompatible with the JS engines of 360EEv11/v12 (but compatible with 360EEv13) ...
  3. I am unable to fully load GitHub Docs in both 360EEv11 and 360EEv12 ; https://docs.github.com/en/rest/reference/repos ... begins to load in an apparent "normal" fashion (it's a rather "elongated" page), but - just before load completion - it blanks out in the end! I have tried in both browsers to use a clean/fresh profile without any extension, but the issue persists ; the javascript console isn't telling much... The page eventually loads fully in 360EEv13 (and, FWIW, in latest St52+gh-wc-p), but if there's some workaround to enable it on either v12/v11, I'd much prefer it over v13 (v12 and, especially, v11 are much more "fluid" in this 13-yr old Vista laptop ) ... FTR. another Microsoft-owned page that demands at least 360EEv13 is Microsoft Docs Search : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/search/ ; I feel it's no coincidence either... I'm quite certain that after M$ adopted Chromium as the basis for their re-incarnated Edge Browser, they're making absolutely sure pages they have control on are fully working only on recent/latest Chromium-based browsers...

  5. The documentation was removed last December: http://web.archive.org/web/20200801000000*/https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/Working_with_multiprocess_Firefox Relevant articles: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2016/08/02/multi-process-firefox-and-add-ons-a-call-to-action/ https://wiki.mozilla.org/Add-ons/developer/communication#Migration_paths_for_developers_of_legacy_add-ons https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/comparison-with-the-add-on-sdk/ I'm quite sure additional documentation has been spared from Mozilla's axe, it's just that one needs to hunt it down with determination...
  6. As I stressed already, GitHub pages do load when e10s is force-enabled in St52, but the gh-wc-p extension isn't e10s-compatible; this means that the majority of useful functions (especially for a logged-in user) in the GitHub web front-end simply fail to work... Read the relevant discussion over at https://github.com/JustOff/github-wc-polyfill/issues/33
  7. Technically, they're being distributed by Zhongcheng, the exclusive and official distributor of Adobe Flash Player (in mainland China): The form of distribution has shifted recently to an AIO executable called Flash Center: https://www.flash.cn/english (links to FlashCenter_Setup_1.0.6.43_silent_10001.exe) Individual plugin installers (be it only stub, i.e. on-line) are linked on: https://www.flash.cn/download-wins but unsure whether they'll be phased out completely, in favour of Flash Center... Due to the spyware nature of these Chinese Flash products, several recent filter lists (e.g. inside uBO) will flag "www.flash.cn/*" URIs as malicious and block them from loading in the browser...
  8. works fine in 360EEv12 under Vista SP2 32-bit: No nags whatsoever...
  9. And, as far as upstream are concerned, the same stands true for the remainder of this month and the first week of November: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?p=220767#p220767 http://developer.palemoon.org/docs/release-engineering/ Pale Moon Version - CLOSED TREE - Intended Release Date - Type of Release 29.5.0 2021-11-02 2021-11-09 Major/Feature Release
  10.

  11. This is just a guess, but since I see no sse/ia32 part in the package's filename, I suspect it's been compiled to expect at least SSE2...
  12. ... YES; remove the LAV dlls adjacent to basilisk.exe, exit browser, relaunch browser and test: http://demo.nimius.net/video_test/ https://tekeye.uk/html/html5-video-test-page http://camendesign.com/code/video_for_everybody/test.html http://www.html5videoplayer.net/html5video/mp4-h-264-video-test/ https://ophi.org.uk/test-html5-video/ These DLLs have been updated by roytam1 on Sep 25th, 2021 ; they are based on FFmpeg 3.4.9 Those were based on FFmpeg 3.1.1 What does that even mean? What type of CPU are you on? If it supports SSE2 instruction set, download the default package; if it supports up-to SSE, download the ia32 variant; for even older CPU, give the noasm variant a try... The links are for the 32-bit architecture; the extracted DLLs must be placed adjacent to palemoon.exe (for NM27) / arcticfox.exe (for ArcticFox-Win); the browser has to be restarted to successfully load the DLLs...
  13. ... Serpent 52.9.0 on WinXP doesn't rely on LAV dlls for h264/aac decoding (i.e. playback); it uses a modified ffvpx third-party library; just make sure media.ffvpx.enabled is in its default value of true (FWIW, under Vista SP2 and higher, St52 defaults to using WMF system - OS - codecs; it can be configured to use ffvpx there, too, by disabling media.wmf.enabled; do note that ffvpx doesn't use H/W h264 decoding (Win7+), if your gfx card supports it, that is...). TL;DR: You should remove LAV dlls from within the Serpent 52 application directory! LAV dlls for NM27 (and related forks) were recently updated: https://o.rthost.win/palemoon/lav-dll-lite- https://o.rthost.win/palemoon/lav-dll-lite-ia32- https://o.rthost.win/palemoon/lav-dll-lite-noasm- Download the variant that is compatible with your CPU...
  14. Clean Flash Installer repo moved, for now, to GitLab: https://gitlab.com/cleanflash/installer/-/releases/ If Adobe are really determined, the future of that second repo might also be uncertain... PS: If on WinXP, to load that GitLab page you need a UXP browser by roytam1, along with the very latest version of github-wc-polyfill extension by JustOff; any flavour of 360EE will also do...
  15. Web Archive scavenged links to CleanFlash_34.0.0.192_Installer.exe : https://web.archive.org/web/20210923173744/https://github.com/CleanFlash/installer/releases https://web.archive.org/web/20210923173709/https://github.com/CleanFlash/installer/releases/tag/v1.5 https://web.archive.org/web/20210923173709/https://github.com/CleanFlash/installer/releases/download/v1.5/CleanFlash_34.0.0.192_Installer.exe
