  1. roytam1, in Firefox 52.9 it is possible to install some new extensions with AMO by creating extensions.checkCompatibility.52.9 (false) example: "PotPlayer YouTube Shortcut" or "Worldwide Radio" This option does not work in the BOC/UXP (Serpent). Can this be fixed ?
  2. XPerceniol, the mobile version of youtube is still light, but there you need to create rules for ublock for example m.youtube.com##lazy-list > .spinner
  3. Firefox 78 https://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20210623T030849Z/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/firefox-esr_78.11.0esr-1~deb10u1_i386.deb https://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20210623T030849Z/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/firefox-esr_78.11.0esr-1_i386.deb Fastest Firefox 68 https://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20201015T150652Z/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/firefox-esr_68.10.0esr-1~deb9u1_i386.deb https://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20201015T150652Z/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/firefox-esr_68.12.0esr-1~deb10u1_i386.deb It is advisable to do the following for better responsiveness layers.omtp.enabled - false media.av1.enabled - false media.cubeb.sandbox - false media.rdd-process.enabled - false security.sandbox.content.level for Firefox 68 - 0 dom.ipc.processCount - 1 extensions.webextensions.remote - false browser.tabs.remote.warmup.enabled - false browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory - true layers.async-pan-zoom.enabled - false toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled - false browser.stopReloadAnimation.enabled - false browser.suppress_first_window_animation - false
  4. GusCE6, it is possible to put a WMP or VLC plugin in the browser. With which you can watch video in 360p example on Windows XP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-6MczEoa6I example on MX Linux https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhltXEaJHmU Hardware acceleration is disabled by default in Firefox on Linux. If your video card supports OpenGL 2.0, enable it layers.acceleration.force-enabled or layers.acceleration.force In Firefox 78 for SSE, be sure to toggle these settings media.cubeb.sandbox - false , security.sandbox.content.level - 2 (for Alsa).
  5. Dave-H, only K-Meleon, PM27 and Firefox 45-47. I asked Feodor2 to fix OpenGL, it did it, but then it broke it https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal/issues/126#issuecomment-660646967 roytam1, is it possible to fix (without crashing) OpenGL compositing in NM28, Basilisk and Serpent?
  6. Dave-H, For Radeon 9500 - x600 can enable OpenGL compositing. In K-Meleon, PM27 and Firefox browsers 45-47. layers.prefer-opengl - true layers.acceleration.force-enabled - true or layers.acceleration.force - true In km - normal. In PM and Firefox - shifted up (fixed by full-screen mode and browser.fullscreen.autohide - false PM28 (Firefox52) crash at start
  7. Typically, hardware acceleration problems occurred due to Direct2D. But Direct2D doesn't work for WindowsXP. Only "compositing" can work in WindowsXP about:config and about:support
  8. DirectX 9.0b Dave-H, x600 supports WebGL, but not Angle, only OpenGL . You need to switch: webgl.disable-angle - true webgl.angle.try-d3d11 - false webgl.force-enabled - true Even the Radeon 9500 can WebGL If WebGL through OpenGL will not work, you can do s/w WebGL, it will not h/w, but will work (necessary SSE2) webgl.disable-angle - true webgl.angle.try-d3d11 - false webgl.force-enabled - true gfx.prefer-mesa-llvmpipe - true and add opengl32.dll to your browser folder https://msfn.org/board/topic/182647-my-browser-builds-part-3/page/11/?tab=comments#comment-1199702
  9. roytam1, I tested h/w acceleration on Radeon x700. Firefox does not include it. But works in your. Looks like Directx 9.0b support is critical Dave-H, do you have an h/w acceleration on x600?
  10. Hm.... Radeon 9550 (DirectX9) video card. Serpent, KM and PM write the following errors Compositing Basic GPU Accelerated Windows 0/1 Basic (OMTC) (#0) Assert [D3D9] Failed to create a critical resource (vbo) (#1) Assert [D3D9] Could not Initialize the DeviceManagerD3D9 (#2) Error [D3D9] Failed to init compositor with reason: FEATURE_FAILURE_D3D9_DEVICE_MANAGER This video card works normally OpenGL compositing in K-meleon (layers.prefer-opengl) and OpenGL compositing in Firefox78 on Linux. Why might this and other D3D9 video cards not be initialized?
  11. roytam1, please remove the limitation 4K texture for hardware acceleration. This can return hardware acceleration for Radeon 9500 - X1250 and Intel GMA900 - 3150 graphics cards https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=637089 And add opengl32.dll file for SSE2 + , that it would be possible to enable software WebGL on computers with a bad video card https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1193695 https://download.qt.io/development_releases/prebuilt/llvmpipe/windows/ (25-Sep-2014) and rename opengl32sw.dll
  12. PotPlayer v1.7.21419 - last for Windows XP
  13. 1. to unpack wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe (WinRAR or 7zip) 2. start in turn: umdf.exe , wmfdist11.exe , wmp11.exe 3. reboot WMP can be used to view Youtube in a browser on very slow computers
  14. Software WebGL1 on Windows XP, for non-OpenGL2.0 video cards (MX440, Radeon 9250, GMA....) download opengl32.dll https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/4hr7voppxcxpqq8/opengl32.dll or MESA OpenGL Software Renderer http://trixarian.net/Chell/ opengl32.dll drag in folder ..... C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox (or another browser) In about:config webgl.disable-angle - true webgl.force-enabled - true gfx.prefer-mesa-llvmpipe - false https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1193695
