  1. my version is 5.131.2600.6459 shall i still install kb update hotfix for sha-2 if the kb isnt in M$ catalog where do i get it last kb updates i did was for the ransomeware emergency update
  2. i got switched to new today without option of going back, fbp and revert wouldnt work fb would not load, so i changed the UA to Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_11_6) AppleWebKit/601.7.8 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/10.1.2 Safari/605.3.8 it seems atm all is ok again and videos with primetime is ok
  3. has anyone found a way around getting youtube to work properly on 52.9esr with all the functions , some stuff loads, others don't i have tried using default UA and some stuff will not load just white box with spinning circle tried using various UA's to no avail seems UT must see past the UA i set Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv75.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/75.0Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv62.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/62.0 i have tried setting it to newer FF and all i get is a white page most it will do is version 62 only one so far i found that works, but is on old polymer layout Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/49.0.2623.112 Safari/537.36 can the above be made to work on FF with a newer version of above so you have the newer layout on youtube
  4. I don't use chrome normally If I can help it, NOT tried with IE8, never did like IE, even years ago I would use Netscape Navigator no idea as to waht is causing these glitches now
  5. i've notice with youtube aswell now that if you click on your profile pic, not get the menu, used to till a few days ago, something clearing has changed, tried loads of UA's and without one using default did try this Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/49.0.2623.112 Safari/537.36, but page doesn't load properly has anyone found a way around this yet to get 52.9.0 to work properly on UT, Is UT actually seeing past the UA ? I know it isnt this browser on this PC, as it does same on 2 other same vbrowsers on 2 other PCs, so it has to be UT would prefer a Mozilla based UA to the apple webkit, as I like that feel, the apple one looks like a very old style layout
  6. mine is started to display same symptoms on/off another thing that is playing up on/off is the share doesn't work,(this keeps coming and going) and the like/dislike, save is greyed out not working I wonder if it is to do with the UT server rather than browser side, as the share button like add button seems to come and go, I had tried disabling ABP and UBO still same seems to be ok on chrome 49.0 although displays old style layout I did try this in 52.9.0 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/49.0.2623.112 Safari/537.36 it displays as Google chrome 49.0, but you get the nag yellow bar did have a play with a few UA's SSAQ no go
  7. that is what I get sometimes (not often), no idea what happens, but am getting what @Comrade_Hajji is getting, If i click the 3 lines can goto Libary and history
  8. atm moment I still got it all, the sidebar with Home, trending subscribtions, and If you click the 3 lines everything is there, on odd ocassions it ALL does disappear and only get the About at botton, if it does do that ,often a refresh or restart of browser cures it 52.9.0 eSR here
  9. one thing i have noticed using either UBO or ABP is if you block the element for the you are using a adbocker and put in filters, when page is refreshed it comes back with another some you can bypass, some you can't
  10. Would someone be kind enough to help here can;t figure this out most if not all site are ok except facebook (on Firefox 52.9) the time line is fine But the profile page looks like i am on a mobile app, instead of profile pic to corner of cover pic, its in centre below, and text is in black Not blue, and some links greyed out, now i have all the correct UA's in place thinking it was my PC i tried a different PC with 52.9 still same, but using facebook on chrome 49.0 on both PC's its no change way its supposed to be So I tried my sons Win7 Lappy with FF 66.0 quantum still same lookinging like a mobile app, but on his chrome 49 looks old way i had a play with the UA and came up with this Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/49.0.2623.112 Safari/537.36 this does fool FB thinking I am on chrome 49.0 even tho I am FF 52.9 (here is the but) althou I have HTML5 (primetime and widevine going) its works ok usung the UA I should but using the Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/49.0.2623.112 Safari/537.36 it breaks the html videos, it tries to play &/or tries to open in theatre instead of in FF and stops has FB become biased against FF it can;t be my 2 PC's with FF, as I tried 4 different FF on 4 different PC's even much much newer FF or has FB enforced a change me, it does look nasty some people i spoke to are having no problems is there another UA I could use
  11. is there a universal filter to use to block the adblock warnings on a site, rather than have to enter a site pacific for each site @@||example.com^$generichide i did try this where example.com is replace by the site domain
  12. i know this is an old thread but i think I have Quicktime going in Firefox, without installing quicktime what I did was ============================== In about:config set plugins.load_appdir_plugins set to true --------------------------------------------------- create a folder plugins ====================== place these dll/s in the folder npqtplugin.dll npqtplugin2.dll npqtplugin3.dll npqtplugin4.dll npqtplugin5.dll Put plugins folder into C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser restart browser test page http://camendesign.co.uk/code/video_for_everybody/test_qt.html https://archive.org/details/Davidleeking-testVideoUsingMovFormat286
  13. have I got this correct ? Create A txt File With Following pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.filename", "config.js"); Name It config-prefs.js Place Here C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref Create a txt File With Following // needs to start with a comment line Components.utils.import("resource://gre/modules/Services.jsm"); Services.obs.addObserver(function (aSubject, aTopic, aData) { var chromeWindow = aSubject; chromeWindow.setTimeout(function () { Components.utils.import("resource://gre/modules/UserAgentOverrides.jsm", chromeWindow); chromeWindow.UserAgentOverrides.init(); }, 1000); }, "browser-delayed-startup-finished", false); Name it config.js And Place Here C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox Now you can use useroverride strings this is what i used to have and the general.useragent.override.xxxxxx would work now they don't I would have general.useragent.override Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0 then general.useragent.override.whatismybrowser Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv:73.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/73.0 and whatismy browser would read i am upto date on 8.1 FF 73,,, now it seems as if it is sniffing out the correct version as being on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0 where have i gone wrong
  14. to get mpeg-4 mime videos to work in firefox apparently i need these 2 set to true or defaulte media.windows-media-foundation.enabled (it;s not in FF) but instead of this I got this as default media.windows-media-foundation.allow-d3d11-dxva (this was already in FF) will i have to add this in manually is it a string or boolean media.directshow.enabled which this is as some sites i goto i have video format not supported, yet on html5 test i have ALL blue ticks
