  1. Damn [insert nice stuff] eat each other alive when in need. That is all there is to it.
  2. True that. A steroid-fed hybrid of proxomitron and decentraleyes. If done in a pi-hole it could mean better safety/privacy and good business too.
  3. Hi there. I'm having issues with the search bar not working properly in the last version of sp52 (Win32 https://o.rthost.win/basilisk/basilisk52-g4.8.win32-git-20220430-3219d2d-uxp-cf4e046f9-xpmod.7z) It won't process enter, nor clicking on the arrow. Not an issue with previous built.
  4. Hi @XPerceniol, For e10s, I use user_pref("extensions.interposition.enabled", false); // set (true for no e10s) *-* user_pref("extensions.interposition.prefetching", false); // set (true for no e10s) *-* For network stuff, these are the settings I change/monitor: // NETWORK user_pref("network.allow-experiments", false); // set user_pref("network.dns.disablePrefetch", true); // set user_pref("network.dns.disablePrefetchFromHTTPS", true); // add user_pref("network.http.altsvc.enabled", false); // set user_pref("network.http.altsvc.oe", false); // set user_pref("network.http.redirection-limit", 12); // set user_pref("network.http.sendRefererHeader", 2); // default user_pref("network.http.spdy.enabled", false); // set user_pref("network.http.spdy.enabled.deps", false); // set user_pref("network.http.spdy.enabled.http2", false); // set user_pref("network.http.speculative-parallel-limit", 0); // set user_pref("network.IDN_show_punycode", true); // set user_pref("network.IDN.restriction_profile", "high"); // set user_pref("network.manage-offline-status", false); // set user_pref("network.predictor.enable-prefetch", false); // default user_pref("network.predictor.enabled", false); // set user_pref("network.prefetch-next", false); // set user_pref("network.protocol-handler.external.ms-windows-store", false); //set user_pref("network.seer.enabled", false); // add user_pref("security.sri.enable", true); // default user_pref("webchannel.allowObject.urlWhitelist", "");
  5. Yeah, sorry. For a few uses it seemed to work, but it breaks after visiting a few github pages. I've seen the same in e10s enabled sp52, but don't use github that much, so that's it for me. I have also noticed issues with ublock and umatrix dropping off, somehow, their guard, similar to chrome's "your app has crashed" but without the notification.
  6. I wouldn't know. One of the first things I do when tweaking a browser is to turn webrtc and webgl off. I assume I haven't missed much, have I? :P
  7. I'm sorry, I didn't see this before. Which one of them? all of them? I have them all working in sp52 for a year at least, some much more. But I may have tweaked a few of them a bit and forgot about it.
  8. Blocking tracking ads?Yes Blocking invisible trackers?Yes Protecting you from fingerprinting?Your browser has a nearly-unique fingerprint [changs every time]
  9. ABOUT:CONFIG stuff User.js functionality is broken. First batch of odd keys: Unlike FF52 and derivatives, network.proxy.socks_remote_dns is set to false by default. I wonder why. Unlike FF52 and derivatives, browser.eme.ui.enabled is set to false by default -would this interfere with silberlight? The key dom.workers.enabled is missing
  10. I have silverlight installed and working in SP52. Mypal doesn't pick it up. Can I manually add a plugin in mypal?
  11. Hi there. Testing it. It works well in heavy scripted sites (fb, yt and the like), probably better than 360chrome. However, it has all the issues of FF post 52: poor interface, lack of suitable addons, privacy issues, etc.. Therefore, I will keep it for alternative use when sp52 doesn't work. Will report on use of user.js, in particular hardware acceleration and e10s, in separate comment Noscript last (FF) version works, but I do not like it -what version is recommended? The same applies to ublock: last FF version installs and works well, but the interface is lacking -what version is recommended? Greasemonkey last FF version installs, and scripts from usual places do as well. I cannot find, however, where the settings are saved. I would like to have this to have preconfigured scripts if I rebuild the profile. SP52 ADDONS THAT SEEM TO WORK in MYPAL FIREFOX ADDONS THAT SEEM TO WORK in MYPAL
  12. That has been said so many times... In any case, maybe access to some websites is lost. But for almost all other day to day business still works, and better, than subsequent versions (excluding perhaps a well modded w7). In my imagination, I can see a near future where I connect into a raspberry-pi 4 for both internet connection and x-windowing of a few apps that require something better than xp and are worth the effort (i.e., apps with no suitable replacement in the "They"-wanna-see-deprecated xp).
  13. I just found out that there is another about:config item related to e10s: user_pref("extensions.interposition.enabled, false); // set (true for no e10s) and there is also another related extensions.interposition.prefetching EDIT: using these tweaks, it seems to me that I can see less v-synch (or whatever is the horizontal-line artifact that every now and then shows up while watching videos. Some old extensions (for example, TB profile switcher 1.77) become less responsive due to lack of shims, but no other significant drawback. Cheers!
  14. @nicolaasjan, @RainyShadow. After a long search, I found the problem with this, as well as difficulties downloading addons from dfferent platforms. The problem was eMatrix 5.0, when tightening too much. I had the following umatrix rule: matrix-off: behind-the-scene false But since two or three versions ago, it interferes with the above. The solution, other than changing it to true, is to also add the following 3 rules (I'm not yet sure if the first two are strictly necessary) behind-the-scene * css inherit behind-the-scene * image inherit behind-the-scene * other allow Hope it helps someone else.
  15. The palemoon addons is back, but for the old ua "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Goanna/4.8 Firefox/68.0 PaleMoon/" doesn't seem to work for me anymore. Could anyone check? Alternatively, does anyone have a working copy of https://addons-dev.palemoon.org/addon/getemall/ ?
  16. Very neat app, really. Now the only thing missing in my tray is a way to remember hide/show status. It's crazy, when you think about it, that 20 years later xp keeps giving new treats.
  17. EDIT: Issue solved after running debug mode, then restarting on run. Hi there. I'm trying to try your library. On restart, following the readme instructions, I am able to run and debug the utility, but my set up is not able to create the utility registry entry at [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SysTrayUtil]. Should I create it manually?
  18. Yeah. But in my set up I cannot get rid of the server errors at 100% level. I tried changing temp folder, changing the number of fragments and so on, to no avail. Unfortunately, the DTA logs doesn't produce info that I, at least, can use to understand and change what is wrong. I will try in a vanilla profile and see what happens. A pity: this addon was part of my daily workflow. Download star is good, but lacks the capability of saving downloaded files to specific folders on demand. Cheers and out! :P
  19. Hi again. There is this ery robust but outdated spoofer that, besides spoofing, allows you to see the status of a number of about:config settings, and of course the possibility of changing their values through a convoluted but very convenient interface (much like configuration mania does). I use both mostly for that. Now, I do not spoof with this addon (I use the "real" profile) because its browser definitions are pre-52. But as a consequence, the setting "real" profile sticks: the "real" profile can be detected though configuration mania and cannot be changed, which defeaats the purpose of the general, so to speak, general.useragent.override. So my real specs can be known, and heavily scripted sites know I'm flying through their scripts, whiche they don't like. But I insist: i like my privacy. The addon is based in https://github.com/dillbyrne/random-agent-spoofer. And for what I understand, the browser definitions are in https://github.com/dillbyrne/random-agent-spoofer/blob/master/data/json/useragents.json, for example: { "description":"Chrome 52.0.2743.75 (Win 7 32)", "useragent":"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/52.0.2743.75 Safari/537.36", "appname":"Netscape", "appversion":"5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/52.0.2743.75 Safari/537.36", "platform":"Win32", "vendor":"Google Inc.", "vendorsub":"", "buildID":"", "oscpu":"", "accept_encoding":"gzip,deflate,sdch", "accept_default":"text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,*/*;q=0.8", "accept_lang":{"en-US":"en-US,en;q=0.8"}, "pixeldepth":"24", "colordepth":"24", "screens":"800x600,1024x600,1024x768,1152x864,1280x720,1280x768,1280x800,1280x960,1280x1024,1360x768,1366x768,1440x900,1400x1050,1600x900,1600x1200,1680x1050,1920x1080,1920x1200,2048x1152,2560x1440,2560x1600", "profileID":"W1" }, Would any of you know how to update those entries? Thank you very much!
  20. Well, after too much tweaking and finally rebuilding the profiles from scratch, the issues were two: 1) umatrix settings (for FB and also YT and derivatives) should NOT Spoof HTTP referrer string of third-party requests. See pic. 2) previously, through various hacks I was able to convince FB to accept fake referrers (including not referrer at all), but not anymore. Using configurationmania, see pic below, I need now to send the full url and referrer header for cross origin requests (I do NOT use noscript for the social media profile) BUT with strict origin. see pic2 Hope it may help someone else.
