  1. That's because Google have deprecated the old "classic" youtube layout and now yt defaults to loading the polymer layout (several iterations of it exist) which, unfortunately, IE8/XP (and also IE9/Vista) can't render... IIRC, there existed a now dead project called Google Chrome Frame, which used to bring Chrome's rendering engine to Internet Explorer (more info on Wikipedia); I can't remember exactly what version of Chromium it was built on (and the installer itself is currently hard to locate on the web) but it's worth a (long) shot, if available, to test [polymer]youtube loading inside IE8...
  2. If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say because of https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=39255 i.e. the CPU on that box of his doesn't support SSE2+ instructions set...
  3. It appears you missed the point in my previous post above... User Agent Switcher & Manager https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-agent-switcher-and-m/bhchdcejhohfmigjafbampogmaanbfkg Version 0.4.4 Updated: October 8 2020 => CRX3-package-only, that won't install in Chrome 49 OTOH, the one extension I suggested was last updated on September 6 2019 and will install!
  4. @we3fan currently has Chrome 49 on Windows XP, 49 being (as you might already know) the last version to support that OS... Chrome 49 only supports the deprecated CRX2 type of Chromium extension packaging ; however, evil Google have stopped publishing new and updated extensions in the Chrome Web Store (CWS) in that package (.crx) format since the end of last May 2020, making only available the newer format package CRX3, which isn't supported by old Chrome versions (NB: Chrome v64.0.3242.0 is the first one with CRX3 support). The following is an excerpt from an unpublished article of mine: The following depicts what happens when one attempts to install GOYT 1.16.0 on Chrome 49: Previously installed versions won't auto-update, either... SSUAOs in Chromium browsers can be enabled via, e.g. User-Agent Switcher for Chrome : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-agent-switcher-for-c/djflhoibgkdhkhhcedjiklpkjnoahfmg 1. First set a Custom UA and add it to the "Chrome" category (under default, this assumes the newly created UA impersonates some other form/version of Chromium), then 2. Permanent Spoof List => domain => youtube.com => choose the previously set custom UA =>add 3. When you load yt, the extension's tab icon will alert you a SSUAO is being used... DISCLAIMER: This was obviously OFF-TOPIC, as it doesn't pertain to any of Roytam1's browsers...
  5. That's because Serpent 52 by default doesn't check AMO (addons.mozilla.org) for installed WEs updates (and if one searches this long thread, will, hopefully, locate related posts of mine... ) If you go to about:config => extensions.update.url, you'll see default URI being https://addons.basilisk-browser.org/?component=aus&reqVersion=%REQ_VERSION%&id=%ITEM_ID%&version=%ITEM_VERSION%&maxAppVersion=%ITEM_MAXAPPVERSION%&status=%ITEM_STATUS%&appID=%APP_ID%&appVersion=%APP_VERSION%&appOS=%APP_OS%&appABI=%APP_ABI%&locale=%APP_LOCALE%&currentAppVersion=%CURRENT_APP_VERSION%&updateType=%UPDATE_TYPE%&compatMode=%COMPATIBILITY_MODE% i.e. only ABBO is being queried for legacy/XUL extension updates... Should you wish to be notified about WE-updates from AMO, you should point that pref to it via: https://versioncheck.addons.mozilla.org/update/VersionCheck.php?reqVersion=%REQ_VERSION%&id=%ITEM_ID%&version=%ITEM_VERSION%&maxAppVersion=%ITEM_MAXAPPVERSION%&status=%ITEM_STATUS%&appID=%APP_ID%&appVersion=52.9&appOS=%APP_OS%&appABI=%APP_ABI%&locale=%APP_LOCALE%&currentAppVersion=%CURRENT_APP_VERSION%&updateType=%UPDATE_TYPE%&compatMode=%COMPATIBILITY_MODE% NB: 1. You won't be notified about updates from ABBO henceforth... 2. In the case of id-less WEs like GOYT, you'll only be notified about un update being available, but the addons manager (AOM) won't be able to install said update; you'll have to, as you already know already, download manually/patch install.rdf/install from file (or drag-n-drop)... I hope it's clear now,,,
  6. Using 1. Latest Serpent v52.9.0 (2020-11-27) (32-bit) [BuildID=20201127025411] The default SSUAO for "youtube.com" there is general.useragent.override.youtube.com;Mozilla/5.0 (%OS_SLICE% rv:62.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/62.0 Basilisk/52.9.0 2. Latest Good Old Youtube v1.16.0 (patched to enable installation), with default settings: FWIW, you don't need to change the default yt SSUAO when using GOYT... I have no issue loading the referenced playlist in the non-polymer layout: However, I do not have a Google/YT account, thus I visit as non-signed-in... YT's behaviour might be different for signed-in users... Tips: If I suddenly find I am being served the abominable polymer layout, I make sure I delete browser cache and all *google.*/*youtube.* set cookies, then restart browser+reload youtube page ... Make no mistake about it... Already, the classic yt search is impossible to restore...
  7. ... ALL three links yield a 404 Not Found error ; upon digging in the actual repo, correct links are generated by "s/ffb32e0/11839e2/g", thus: Win32 https://o.rthost.win/basilisk/basilisk52-g4.7.win32-git-20201128-11839e2-uxp-a8a397fbc-xpmod.7z Win64 https://o.rthost.win/basilisk/basilisk52-g4.7.win64-git-20201128-11839e2-uxp-a8a397fbc-xpmod.7z IA32 Win32 https://o.rthost.win/basilisk/basilisk52-g4.7.win32-git-20201128-11839e2-uxp-a8a397fbc-xpmod-ia32.7z
  8. ... Making phone calls requires the WebRTC feature to be present in the application, New Moon (either versions) & BNavigator do not support it (by design) ... You might try latest Serpent 52 (... its WebRTC implementation is fully spec-compliant, but Google enforce strict racism against anything they, themselves, don't produce/control ) ... It's quite probable you'd also have to tweak Serpent's UA to pose as [a] Chromium [variant] to their servers ...
  9. Same thing happens with official Pale Moon. Any Ideas on that ? PS. It involves lists that I already had imported without any problems, then removed them, plus a couple of new ones. @Tangy : If the issue you're experiencing happens on the very popular https://filterlists.com/ site, then that site had a recent revamp/redesign (default dark theme), which might have contributed to the issue... I conducted some short tests with New Moon 28 + uBO-legacy, here's what I found: When loading a selected list's own page, e.g. https://filterlists.com/lists/1hosts-mini then, when clicking the "Subscribe" blue button/bar in the right sidebar, try to avoid clicking directly on the literal word, rather aim at an empty spot within that button; then, hopefully, the "add-to-custom-filterlists" dialog will pop-up: Take care...
  10. ... Actually, he was banned for a completely different reason :
  11. Probably not, as this is an extension created by Moonchild himself: https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/pm-commander/ What hinders you from downloading+installing it at will? BTW, Moonchild has seemingly lost interest in that extension, it hasn't been updated for close to a year and a half; so it might not work correctly with recent Pale/New Moon (quite a lot has actually changed in about:config since July 2019!)... FWIW, it's meant for "advanced" users, only Can't be easier than simply installing Add to Search Bar v2.9 (via CAA): caa:addon/add-to-search-bar And I can't speak for Roytam1, but "extending the Pale Moon browser" is what dedicated extensions are for, is that not the case? If, OTOH, you mean incorporating into the browser core functions that are currently available by existing addons, then this defeats the purpose and will only increase/bloat the browser package size,; and who's to decide what "additional" functions should be added? One person's needs can vary widely from another's... Well, I can't confirm that here (2008 era Vista SP2 32-bit laptop, 3GB RAM, old Intel Merom Core 2 Duo CPU/integrated GPU); MSFN forums "flows like water" in latest New Moon 28 (but, sadly, this is not the case for other, JS-infested, sites like (new) Facebook, polymer Youtube, Instagram, Twitter and related Social Media Satans; it would appear all these "trendy" mobile-device-targeting web designs put a severe tax on old hardware... ).
  12. Which version of CAA are you on? ... And on which browser? The XPI files are actually hosted on a "storage-waterfox.netdna-ssl.com" domain name, over HTTPS, https://storage-waterfox.netdna-ssl.com/amo/xul/239/239381/proxy_tool-1.19-fx+sm.xpi?origin=caa&action=download , so your system does have to be able to access that domain; check your DNS, firewall, AV suite, content-blockers, etc. Also, ATN still has v1.17 of Proxy Tool (not v1.19 that you seek, but you may still try it despite...): https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-us/firefox/addon/proxy-tool/versions/
  13. @soggi : Each of the above packages contains an application.ini file: BNavigator: [App] Vendor=OpenSource Name=BNavigator RemotingName=bnavigator CodeName=Browser Version=0.9.7608a1 BuildID=20201106041532 ID={a3210b97-8e8a-4737-9aa0-aa0e607640b9} MailNews: [App] Vendor=OpenSource Name=MailNews RemotingName=mailnews Version=52.9.7608a1 BuildID=20201106032451 ID={3550f703-e582-4d05-9a08-453d09bdfdc6} So, there you go! NB: The "7608" part of the version strings is actually build number, so expect it to change in future builds (when full "clobber" is done...)
  14. @soggi : A small inconsistency I'm seeing at your "mirror" : The link to Serpent 55/moebius 64-bit package should be modified accordingly (to be uniform with the rest of the links to 64-bit browser packages ...) ; other than this, many thanks for carrying the torch...
  15. AutoCopy 2 is still available on ATN: https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-us/firefox/addon/autocopy-2/versions/ => https://addons.thunderbird.net/firefox/downloads/file/431692/autocopy_2-1.2.91-sm+tb+fx.xpi
