  1. In regards to the Firefox argument, it seemed pretty cut and dry IMHO. He threw every logical fallacy under the sun at me, but I'm the bad guy. Ok lol. Been over it for a week now, but since you've dredged it up, I must beg the question: Is it not irresponsible to refrain from criticizing blatent misinformation? It's common knowledge that old browsers like FF52.9 ESR have gaping security holes that are actively being exploited. This is not a matter of conjecture, but fact. I wouldn't want someone who is less than informed to take poor advice, then get harmed in the process. I'm not here to attack anyone personally, or stir up trouble for the sake of doing it, but I will call out prima facia misinformation, when I think it could do someone harm. If spreading flat out falsehood is something that isn't only tolerated, but actively encouraged, I'll be happy to see myself out.
  2. In my experience, exloprer crashes have been due to hardware failure. Usually memory related. Is your processor overclocked?
  3. I'm roughly 99% certain that is the case, but it has been a few years since I last used vanilla Firefox. I know for a fact that RT builds Basilisk for IA-32 on a weekly basis, though. I never really have much to say, but I do enjoy reading about your adventures with Windows98 ITT . Great work, and keep it up.
  4. Hi, I just thought I'd point out that FF 52.9ESR requires the SSE2 instruction as well. Otherwise, accurate, to my knowledge.
  5. Basilisk is a fork of Firefox 52.9 ESR, if I'm not mistaken.
  6. Nobody asked you to throw away your computer, cellphone, or any other device, but cool strawman, bud. If you and @ArcticFoxie want to use insecure versions of the very software that is updated on a regular basis, and offered to you free of charge in this very thread, then be my guest. Your irresponsibility is your business. By deliberately practicing terrible opsec, you're only harming yourself.
  7. Using an old browser chalk full of security holes does not make you bold, or enlightened. Frankly, it's asinine, but you're free to do whatever you'd like. When using an unsupported operating system, the least you can do is mitigate the security risks that come with browsing the internet.
  8. On Debian, yes. I'm not sure if the same applies to other distro's as well.
  9. Thanks for this! I'll definitely give it a try later on
  10. I've experienced the very same problem with the same device, on multiple laptops. The problem only seems to crop up on machines that have the POS Ready 2009 updates installed. It works fine for me on vanilla SP3, Windows 2000, 7, and multiple Linux distro's.
  11. Very cool! I'll have to give this a try after I get off work tomorrow :)
  12. I've always chalked it up to Windows 7's more advanced CPU scheduler. I'm sure memory management has a bit to do with it as well.
  13. Looks like I hadn't installed the latest updates correctly. All is well now! Thanks!
  14. I'm trying to use KM74g on Windows 98SE with the latest KernelEx updates, but I'm getting the error "K-Meleon failed to initialize. Please reinstall." I set KernelEx compatibility mode to Windows 2000, and have tried all of the other available Windows compatibility versions as well. Any ideas?
