  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

  15. has this now disappeared as i no longer she this instead it is this ""https://www.youtube.com/supported_browsers"" is there another test site to see if you have all installed i found this https://html5test.com/
  16. was this ever cured i still don't see vidoes on instagram on FF 52.9 "IF" they do appear don;t play, evn tho i have primetime and widevine i put this in the \chrome\userChrome.css userContent,css fike as another line to what is already in there QUOTE 129 posts OS: XP Pro x86 Country: Report post Posted March 21, 2019 (edited) You guys give up too easily, is this the infamous XP lair of fanatics or not!? Fortunately there is (for time being, anyway) a pretty simple fix for this "video problem". (I use quotes because it has nothing to do with video as such.) You don't need to switch or recompile browsers either - at least not right now over this particular issue. Apparently ESR 52.9 handles CSS flex layout a bit differently, so with the current Instagram code the video and its surroundding elements kindly get the height of 0 pixels... This can be fixed by modifying a surrounding <div> container to use block display instead of flex. If you use uBlock Origin, you can add the following rule to your My filters: instagram.com##div.ZyFrc[role=dialog]:style(display: block !important) (Just make sure Filterlists > Parse and enforce cosmetic filters is checked and that Settings > Default behavior > Disable cosmetic filtering is not checked or is overridden per-site for instagram.com.) The same can presumably be done with other styling/tweaking extensions, only the syntax may be a little different. I don't use anything else, so can't give you the specifics. If you don't use any such extensions and don't want to install them, you can just add the following CSS snippet to your userContent.css file (it's located in the chrome subdirectory under your Firefox profile folder. Edit: as @Dave-H pointed out, the file may not exist yet, in which case just create a new text file, put this stuff in it, and rename the file to userContent.css.) @-moz-document domain(instagram.com) { div.ZyFrc[role="dialog"] { display: block !important; } } i tried this and addiing in the usercontent.css file doeswnt seen to work , still can't see or play videos in instagram
  17. can someone help when firefox closes Ablock Plus is Not saving filters they used to, but not now , now what can i do dom.indexedDB.enabled is set to true, i did try removing ABP then reinstall it still same can't figure it out
  18. i don't see a folder called chrome in either main install folder or the profile folder do I create a folder called chrome in the profile folder ? i take it this is where it goes Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\frbggthb.default-1582150475918\chrome\userChrome.css then the file userContent.css with the above you posted sorry for being a bit vague n stupid here
  19. can you show what how where you did that as i see in UBO 1.17 you can't see to add filters
  20. Does anyone know how to correct this An error occurred in the secure channel support I get this in uTorrent 1.8.2 and othe utorrent clients, as much as i can find utorrent support HTTPS or its to do with TLS 1.2 is there a fix for this all other torrents are ok apart from this site
  21. I seem to have Primetime and widevine going ok on FF 52.9
  22. @dencorso yep I agree, really stubborn here to move on will keep using XP till no longer can do, but as it is, it still serves me It took me me almost 3 years to move from 98SE to XP, but that was only because I HAD too "IF" I have to move most will be 7 or 8 not keen on 10 after a play with one and the constant f'ups M$ do to it
  23. seems it didn't work althou MSE did say i was upto date, on a reboot of PC system, MSE now says Virus and definitions last updated 2 days ago despite it originally saying upto date as someone said looks like MSE on XP is now numbered and M$ is delibrately trying to derail use of XP I would off hoped there was/maybe a work around image now say virus and definitions created 2 days ago
  24. I Well I got the file above which @dencorso supplied , stopped MSE, extracted the files to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Definition Updates\Updates restarted MSE and it seemed to update ,,,, (but it left behind the MpSigStub file) now says MSE is upto date . I did try getting latest mpam-fe extract files and change SubSystem from 6.0 to 5.1 and same with others to 5.1, that didn't work . Antimalware Client Version: 4.4.304.0 Engine Version: 1.1.15800.1 Antivirus definition: 1.293.2807.0 Antispyware definition: 1.293.2807.0 @heinoganda does this make sense I did the same on other PC without the MPStigSub and it updated and now got same as image below on both PC's Wonder "IF" it is possible just to use the mpasbase.vdm , mpasdlta.vdm , mpavbase.vdm , mpavdlta.vdm I did notice all these files are 5.2 , sure they used to be 5.1 and leave out MpStigStub & mpengine.dll
