  1. I just updated from New Moon 28.10.5a1 to 28.10.6a1 (64-bit on XP x64) and noticed it can now pass the Cloudflare browser check! This is reaaaally helpful for my partly web-based primary workflow, so if anything you did made this work, roytam1, you have my sincere thanks!
  2. Alright, thank you very much! I've installed the Moon Tester Tool extension and will give it a shot with a newer version of New Moon after having worked through the remaining npapi exensions. Thing is, more and more sites are starting to break on my 29.1.1 version (actually MyPal at the moment), so I'm hoping that upgrading to a newer version of either MyPal or New Moon will do some good. :) Your help is appreciated!
  3. I have a quick question to which I haven't found a clear solution browsing through the first and last 10 pages of this thread. If it's possible, is there an easy, generic step-by-step guide on how to make old FireFox extensions work with New Moon (and/or Pale Moon) after version 29.1.x? I tried to replace as many extensions as I could with native Pale Moon ones, but there are still some left I can't do without. There's some mention of an "install.rdf" trick, but I'm not sure how to pull it off. Not all my FF extensions have such a file in their subfolder within my profile folder. Before I mess something up (I'll make backups, but still) I thought I'd ask here first. Thank you!
  4. Thank you very much! However, the code did not work on my system using Python 3.4. It appears there are some syntax errors (at least when running it with 3.4) plus it tries to access the download subfolder without creating it first, which fails upon file write. I've adapted your code, fixing all the breaking stuff, adding the folder creation and a few more human-readable strings for what I believe are more common HTTP return codes. One new required Python module: "os". It's not very efficient I guess, trying to create the subfolder on every iteration, but hey, I am no Python programmer at all. But this did work for me (Python 3.4 on some old CentOS 6.10 Linux): import csv import os import requests # Add/replace the filenames in csv_files below with the CSV files you want to download csv_files = ['NT_5.1.2600-x86-All.csv', 'NT_5.1.2600-x86-IE-All.csv', 'NT_5.2.3790-x64-All.csv', 'NT_5.2.3790-x64-IE.csv', 'NT_5.2.3790-x86-All.csv', 'NT_5.2.3790-x86-IE.csv'] for csvfile in csv_files: print('Starting file download for' , csvfile) with open(csvfile) as csv_file: csv_reader = csv.reader(csv_file, delimiter=',') # Read comma-delimited CSV line_count = 0 for row in csv_reader: # Iterate over rows if line_count == 0: # Output CSV header print('Column names are:' , ' '.join(row)) line_count += 1 else: # Create download folder, but do nothing if it exists already try: os.mkdir('./' + csvfile[:-4] + '_DL/') print('Subfolder' , csvfile[:-4] , '_DL/' , 'created') except FileExistsError: pass print('\tDownloading' , row[0] , '...') url = row[1] r = requests.get(url) # Get WU file with open('./' + csvfile[:-4] + '_DL/' + row[0], 'wb') as f: f.write(r.content) # Write WU file to disk # Let's define some human-redable HTTP status codes to output if r.status_code == 200: status = ', OK' elif r.status_code == 403: status = ', FORBIDDEN' elif r.status_code == 404: status = ', NOT FOUND' elif r.status_code == 500: status = ', INTERNAL SERVER ERROR' elif r.status_code == 502: status = ', BAD GATEWAY' elif r.status_code == 504: status = ', GATEWAY TIMEOUT' else: status = '' print('\tCompleted with status code' , r.status_code , status) # Write error log, should an error have occurred if r.status_code != 200: with open('./error.log', 'wb') as errLog: errLog.write(('FAIL: ' + row[0] + ', ERROR CODE: ' + str(r.status_code) + status + '\nFAILED URL: ' + row[1] + '\n\n').encode()) line_count += 1 print('Processed' , line_count , 'lines.') print('Download Completed.') I haven't introduced any additional, Linux/POSIX-specific stuff, so this should work on Windows just as well (or so I hope). Edit: Further extended the code. It now writes an error log to file error.log including file name and URL should any errors occur during the downloading process. That way you won't miss any download errors.
  5. I tried it just now, and it's pretty ugly (well, in my opinion), but does work! So that's a good workaround for now, thanks! @VistaLover Thanks for your detailed report. I'm rather concerned about that Chinese browser. I've tested it before in a Russian re-release, supposedly with "less spyware", but I don't have it on my system anymore, so I haven't tested it. At least there is an option for those who are ok with it. PS.: I dislike almost all modern "responsive" designs (as they don't properly "respond" to me having a 100dpi desktop monitor, and are wasting my screen real estate), and that includes infinite scrolling. I'm not a Reddit user myself, but a person who used to comment on my blog and now sits on my IRC server reported this to me, so I thought it'd be a good idea to report it here.
  6. I just wanted to report, that somewhere in the last 48 hours, Reddit appears to have partially broken on all XP browsers, including New Moon, MayPal and Chromium ports. It seems several smaller functions don't work anymore, but the most prominent thing is that new posts don't get dynamically shown when scrolling down anymore. The amount of posts the user can see seems to depend on the viewport, or rather on the vertical resolution. Let me show you a screenshot: The two grey fields at the bottom should automatically turn into posts, and more posts should be loaded so I can scroll further down. But this doesn't work anymore, so the user is stuck with this. The smaller the screen resolution, the less content they can actually see. In this case, I used MyPal, but New Moon behaves in the exact same way. Hope this can be fixed! Thank you!
  7. Thank you! Also, it'd be interesting to hear of any leaks of updates sourced from paid support (which are not available to the public). There should be some companies which still get them after all. Would violate the license agreement to release them I presume, but still. I would've tried to actually pay Microsoft for them myself, but unfortunately, this service is not available for private individuals.
  8. I'm sorry, but just 2 posts before I said that I had tracked Server 2003 x64 updates since the EoL of XP x64. You can find my corresponding list [here]. Also, as said, maybe I've just overlooked something. But my searches don't turn up any TLS 1.2 update for Windows SSL on Server 2003 x64 or XP x64. Of course, I can use it with New Moon, but that's not what this is about. I want this for IE8 to upgrade certain softwares which use the IE8 engine to access secure websites (some license activation systems do this, e.g. the one that comes with Adobe Photoshop CS6). Edit @FranceBB: You're right about ProxHTTPSProxyMII of course. Just saying, so you don't think I'm ignoring your suggestions. :) But if there's a way to get this done with some Windows Update on XP x64, I'd prefer that way. If at all possible.
  9. When using Internet Explorer? If so, then very interesting. Then the question would be: Which update gives TLS v1.2 on XP x64? I've tracked all the updates that came out for Server 2003 x64 (after XP x64 went EoL), and there was no TLS v1.2 update included, unless I've overlooked something.
  10. TLS v1.2 doesn't work. Like I said, the corresponding Windows update simply doesn't exist for XP x64 (or Server 2003 x64). There is no x64 version of POSReady2009 after all, so my Windows SSL is stuck at TLS v1.0. Maybe there is a corresponding update for companies which paid up to get continued support for Server 2003 x64, but no such update was ever leaked to the public as far as I know.
  11. Hello again, First: My apologies for double-posting. I just tried this on a Windows XP Professional x64 Edition SP2 VM after removing the "Update Root Certificates" Windows component, and this is what it looks like: I took a look at the certificate store before and after, and certificates were indeed added and removed. The intermediate certificate authority revocation list stayed the same though. But it appears to be working as intended, I guess? Nothing related was logged into the system logs, no errors either. Just a minor suggestion: I think it should say "Root Certificates", not "Roots Certificates". Thanks for your work!
  12. Alright, thanks. I'll try in in a VM first, and let you know how it went.
  13. Heinoganda, I would like to use your updater, but before doing so, I would like to ask whether it works for Windows XP x64 SP2 (NT 5.2) as well? System's English with no MUI installed, but some components differ from regular 32-bit XP. It never got the TLS 1.2 update from the POSReady2009 branch of XP for instance. Also, it has system32/syswow64, like other 64-bit Windows systems, and the registry hive is split between 32/64-bit in a similar fashion. Can I still use your program on XP x64, or is this completely untested? Thank you!
  14. Thank you very much! I set the UA for those three domains as you said and set general.useragent.compatMode.firefox from true to false. Then I went back to github.com, and yes, everything works now! Edit: It works on New Moon as well, so I don't have to switch browsers just for github. That was really helpful.
  15. I tried Basilisk 55/Serpent x64, New Moon 28.9.0a1 x64 and KM-Goanna on XP x64 today, but no matter what, I cannot edit my own issues on github.com. Also, the editor is pretty broken so I can't properly write issues either (e.g. the source code button doesn't work). The fun part is, that this works flawlessly with Palemoon 28.8.0 on CentOS Linux 64-bit! I have no idea why the OS would make a difference here. I tried faking my user agent to FF 71.0, but this didn't change it either, it just got rid of the "your browser is no longer supported" message on github. Tried FF 52.9.0 ESR as well, no luck. Ancient Chromium 49.x browsers have the same issue on XP x64. What could I try?
  16. I just tried the Win2000 build on my ancient quad Pentium Pro 1M 200MHz machine, literally Intels' first 686 processor. So there is no SSE2, no SSE, no MMX, just plain 686; And it works perfectly fine. It's very slow of course, but it does work! Thank you very much! :)
  17. You can always just rip the videos to local disk using Video DownloadHelper or online services like y2mate, but of course, a lot of people might not want to do that. If that bug could be fixed, it'd be really awesome!
  18. This bug also exists in Firefox 52.x ESR + Adobe Primetime on XP. I don't know what the cause is though.
  19. Ah, I see. Of course, with CygWin I'm relying on POSIX threads. Haven't considered that. Also didn't know that you are compiling with the MSVC toolchain.
  20. I compiled myself an ffmpeg version targeting XP 32-bit and also XP x64 last weekend. Built on CygWin, removing bcrypt/schannel and avssource stuff (because I don't have that on CygWin), and replacing the crypto functions with OpenSSL. I can confirm that this works without any Windows API modifications; No Extended XP or anything on my machines, it's all regular Microsoft stuff: (click to enlarge)
  21. Just tested the latest New Moon 28 x64 version on XP x64 - works fine. Had to switch from 27 because somehow, reCaptchas stopped working even in Firefox comaptibility mode. Once more, my words of thanks for this backport! :)
  22. It's not just that. 10+ years ago, Videos were not always encoded in compute-heavy H.264 either. And websites generally used less CPU resources. Plus, modern video de- and encoding relies on SSE and SSE2 a lot for a speed boost (H.264/AVC as well as other modern codecs), additionally to multithreading. Edit: roytam1 was faster.
  23. Even MSVC/MSVC++ 2017 can target XP and XP x64 if you choose to install support for that (platform toolset v141_xp)...
  24. It most likely is compatible with Server 2003, as it works on XP x64 (which shares its kernel version 5.2 and its APIs with Server 2003). That's what the 64-bit build is for anyway: XP x64 and Server 2003 x64, as there are no 64-bit NT 5.1 systems, that's all NT 5.2. Edit: I just tested the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of New Moon on Windows Server 2003 x64 Standard. Works fine, as expected.
  25. @dv_2, I have the exact same issue with OpenGL, but I haven't tried it with official Palemoon on Windows 7 or anything like that yet. As for the name, I believe New Moon to be a pretty nice name for a browser targeting a group officially dead operating systems. Kinda fitting. But that's just my own opinion.
