  1. Jaclazz, I still use the text editor called "Joe" in Linux systems. It was in the original 1990's builds, with compatible command interfaces for Wordstar, Emacs, etc. Surprisingly it is still in the repositories for the major distributions. Joe is a good name, apparently with a lasting pedigree, there would be little confusion between the browser and the editor of the same name ps: Roytam: Thanks for all you are doing for us :)
  2. Amazing! It works for me too. I now have two processes running, 750K and 850K. I typically have to reboot Basilisk 52 once a day when it gets to 1800K (or so) of memory and Windows XP gets very upset (too close to the 2Gb XP program limit). Let's see if this helps deal with Basilisk's insidious growth as you open and close windows, especially video windows.
  3. I would keep 3.4.x FFMPEG has been essentially stable for a decade, at least with respect to its decoding functions. I haven't looked into the details of what has been improved in function since 3.4.x but I would suspect it is basically cosmetic, maybe with some speed improvement.. I recall the change in Lame maintainers in around 2001 which broke its ability to produce compact MP3 files using ABR. When human factors are involved, such as audio and video, I am always wary of change...
  4. I use both Basilisk and NewMoon so that I don't have to waste time dealing with incompatibility problems such as this. I also use the "User Agent" plug-in, often telling sites I am an iPhone so that they display a usable page. Sometimes one can't rely 100% on browsers any more, HTML has become a programming language, and has to be treated/debugged as such...
  5. All three (MP4, Basilisk and NewMoon) work OK for me. I am using old versions though, Nightly 03-06-2018 and New Moon 27.9.0a1.
  6. I am using the version roytam1 posted (above) a few days ago, http://o.rthost.cf/gpc/files1.rt/basilisk-55.0.0a1.win32-git-20171111-5201659a8-xpmod.7z Three of the files in it were updated on 13th to fix a bug with file selection. Everything I needed to install was in that archive. There is a diff of source patches there as well, I think
  7. Roytam1, I have been running the Nov 13th Basilisk Nightly extensively on WinXP x86 SP3. Has been in constant use and I have not seen any problems, except the typical firefox tendency to gradually use more memory as the hours go by. It has been my primary browser for several days. Incredible! Thanks for all you have done for this community b
  8. That works for me! Three files changed; XUL.DLL, MOZGLUE.DLL and BASILISK.EXE. I put them into the current directory and everything seems to be working just fine! Will report back once I have exercised it more. Thanks again
  9. Roytam, I am a newcomer here, and not too familiar with how your files are organized. I checked the gpc 'files1.rt' directory but could only find the RestoreXP Diff file. I don't have the ability to compile the source. Is there a win32 binary for the restored basilisk available yet? Thanks for all you are doing.
  10. That is correct, the folder/file chooser dialog is not displaying, and it appears an exit error code is being generated, which is being ignored (no error messages displayed). I don't understand how the Basilisk code is organized, however, so I can't drill down more than to say the problem is global, I have never seen it generate a file/folder chooser dialog during attempts at read or write.
  11. I spoke too soon (above). I did create logins.json successfully, and eventually got my bookmarks and history working OK with Basilisk, but there is an overriding problem which made things tough. Whenever the browser tries to open an explorer menu it fails, and nothing happens. This is even noticeable from a RUN "basilisk -P" command, where the profile editor to "Create Profile" displays a button for "Choose Folder" that button does nothing, and the new profile is opened in the default location. Similarly, when one opens the "Show all Bookmarks" panel, "Import and Backup", then selecting any of the import or export items from the list does not result in a folder opening, and therefore no import or export occurring. This gave me a few headaches... When I initiate a download the download is OK as long as I accept the default download location. When I set options to "always ask" for the download path, no explorer menu is opened, and the download fails without an error message. OS is Windows XP SP3, this problem does not exist with any other software (I have 452 folders in my "Program Files" directory, this is a daily-use development machine). Palemoon 26.5.0, Firefox 52, Chrome 49.0.2623.112 and Chromium 49.0.2623.112 all have no similar problems Do you have any suggestions?
  12. Installed the archive above (Nightly 2017.11.12 (32-bit)) on XP Pro. It didn't interfere with the several versions of PaleMoon and Firefox I have scattered over my disks, and it ran perfectly with full video capabilities. Am now customizing it with my customary add-ons, and moving across my Palemoon passwords and history. Thank you for the great work you have done! Suggestion: for XP you might default about:config "network.http.spdy.enforce-tls-profile" to "false" since XP typically does not have the capability to enforce the "true" security (AFAIK).
