    @msfntor: Session Tickets exist for performance, not for security. If enabled, they avoid renegotiating TLS for every HTML download from a given server. But it was recently discovered that they can be abused for tracking you. Thus Pale Moon (and thence New Moon) have them disabled by default.

    If you want to enable them, you'll have to toggle pref security.ssl.disable_session_identifiers to false in about:config.

    Thank you, - I've set now New Name, boolean, in Moebius 55.

    And what you think (looking for better performance and security too) to set

    security.ssl.errorReporting.enabled to false? I've it set to true (default).

    toolkit.telemetry.reportingpolicy.firstRun I've set to false.

    toolkit.telemetry.enabled I've set false (default).

    toolkit.telemetry.unified I've user set to false...

    But IMO they should not. Quite the opposite. They are a blessing for humanity, and should benefit as many freedom loving people as possible.
    The various voices in this forum who strive to keep the userbase of such improved browsers as LOW as any possible, wanting to reserve their use to be just fun TOYS for experts who run them in a virtual retro machine on their (of course) modern main systems, make me wonder sometimes. About the purpose of such goals. Strongly disagree of course. And find it rather unfair to tell all people who don't have great expert skills themselves, who are floating somewhere along the vast spectrum between "geek" and "lemming", to just go and jump off the cliff with the other lemmings, regardless how strongly they fight to escape into the opposite direction (and make me wonder about the goal of keeping the userbase intentionally as tiny as possible.) What a pity :-(

    Thank you, Siria, for telling everything. Those are my thoughts too, you know. These browsers should be made for everyone, our wives, the little ones.... they should be popular - they well deserve it!  
    We  have to ask roytam1 very kindly to add the necessary code for those browsers, which are missing it (e.g. codecs to play all HTML5 videos ... possibility to download more extensions ...) - already Moebius 55, Serpent 52 and New Moon 28 are as it should be. I'd like to play the videos on Arctic Fox... 
    And maybe roytam1 is preparing a nice surprise with a new browser based on FF. 56 or 57 ... who knows.

    On branding, I'm for RFox only: RFox 28, RFox 52 etc.

    Mainboard was once running perfectly. GA-7N400 Pro 2 which is universal IDE, SATA(SSE processor) has capacitor plague. at least a bit of it. some capacitors are ill or dead. cannot shut down PSU completely. cmos-data would be lost. same on Asrock SSE2 which had been reactivated successfully. only have it disabled concentrating on older pc. GA has also PCI-slot-failure. they are dead. no chance to installe network-card. Wlan stick was working. only switched back to onboard-LAN after i exchanged MOBO. onboard was defective... you see endless problems. over the last 18 months.
    Cannot do all the steps since other non-computer-related problems need my attention first.

    So your "Mainboard ... has capacitors plague... some capacitors are ill or dead."

    "you see endless problems." but can do nothing now...

    I think that your PC is dead, change it then.

    Hm haha I get impression that some of your postings sometimes  "doesn't mean anything" to me, and are wroted by an Microsoft "messenger" (no offense, an assumption, supposition only) to laugh, distract and impoverish the valuable content of this forum ...

    There were some entertainment on another forum...:

    I remember the old forum.sysinternals.com, where there were topics made expressly by people playing senile, who wanted to get the impression that they were technically up to date, but in fact their posts were meant to distract, entertain and increase the good mood of those reading these topics... I laughed a lot reading these "professional" topics in forum.sysinternals.com...

    So you too are sent by Microsoft, please?
    Perhaps the moderators can make a special topic only for you, with all your posts?...what do you think, please?

    Latest New Moon:

    - No Messenger messages in MSFN website

    - No images (but iframes only) in Google images search results

    uh oh ah


    @roytam1, - NO problems!


    In the latest New Moon 28.9.0a1:

    - No messages, if click on Messages button, then on conversations topics in the user bar on the top of the page,

    - NOW have the messages - in "My filters" in uBlock, deleted these lines of msfn and messages are here, sorry!-_-


    -but have images in Google Images search results, OK, so Google's yesterday fault.

    In the latest Serpent 52.9.0, and Moebius 55:

    -is OK, I've found Messages button under three bars at the right top of the page!:rolleyes:

    Browser security will allow malware, excavator and miner into the system. Antivirus will let in too. Add-ons will not allow access to minerals, malware or other fakes.
    I download movies even from dangerous websites. I personally scan the files. I haven't had an infection for the past 10 years.
    Browser security is mainly based on google badware. Google virus is a problem, because it is known good files and highway is entering the system. The browser cannot block malicious googe scripts. Blocking dangerous files by the browser is illusory and charges the browser.

    What would the excavator have to do with my system, please? Dig something up? What? Some minerals?:huh:

    OK, I'm kidding...

    Ged rid of Google translator very bad, here you have the decent DeepL translator (en English version) I use: https://www.deepl.com/en/translator


    I think like you: "Blocking dangerous files by the browser is illusory and charges the browser."

    So why it's good to set to false all "safebrowsing" items in about:config (Moebius 55, FF 45...) - first unnotch security cases under Options/Security tab.

    Then if you wish, download Bitdefender TrafficLight (have version in Moebius 55, and signed in New Moon ...).

    Thank you for your screenshot about safebrowsing items set to false!

    Best speedtest I've found is very simple one: scroll to the bottom of this page to look on the result (Page Load Time): deviceinfo.me: https://www.deviceinfo.me/

    I've on the latest browser versions (with extensions):

    Moebius 55 (13 ext.), best result: 1.689 seconds

    New Moon (10 ext.): best result: 1.5 seconds

    bnavigator Browser (2 ext. - Silent Block, uBlock O.): best result: 1.2 seconds...

    Arctic Fox (4 ext.): best result: 1.073 seconds - TRUE Best Result from all browsers!

    In my opinion i am being slowed down since weeks.

    Maybe problem is in some services (Messenger...)- clean them strongly, look too on ctfmon activity... delete it.

    - And your fan?... Clean or change it maybe...dust

    "! uBlock Origin is incompatible with Browser 0.9.7308a1. uBlock Origin (disabled). Finally...." - and "Remove" button only.

    Do you have any idea from where this problem might have come, please?

    you may need to update min/max version in install.rdf as upstream lowered the application version to 0.9.

    Could you natively fix this, I mean add necessary code in this browser (and other browsers too, like in your Firefox 45 and Arctic Fox add the possibility to play H.264 videos) so that it could work without my intervention? I'm not the developer - but common mortal. Please.

    I think that in this world there are far more common mortals than developers....I guess, that you can open your nice browsers for all those mortals... millions of them....

    not happening here.

    Moebius 55: now I don't have this "download big time" precedent problem, now download is in seconds like befoe, it's good.

    Then to remove from downloads (file persisted after restart of the browser), I've clicked to remove, in Library downloads window...


    Automatic check and "disabled" uBlock O. problem in bnavigator browser all more recent versions (after version 20190907 that are OK so I'm keeping it) - "not happening here" you wrote, but here is my sad reality in about:addons tab:

    "! uBlock Origin is incompatible with Browser 0.9.7308a1. uBlock Origin (disabled). Finally...." - and "Remove" button only.

    Do you have any idea from where this problem might have come, please?



  11. @RoyTam1,

    Now, firefox-45.9.19-20200104-ddcd778f4-win32-sse doesn't have precedent problem, this tab problem is gone!

    BUT: In latest Moebius 55: basilisk55-win32-git-20200104-dc63b5b94-xpmod - have big new problem: download make 1 hour?... or 2 hours another file download? indication in download display....

    So I've cancelled this download in the latest Moebius 55, downloaded with New Moon....

    Then I dare to ask in Kitaro1's way: to make usable (by everybody) browsers, could you please give modifications to support HTML5 (H.264, MSE & H.264) in some of your browsers that miss this essential, crucial feature (bnavigator before all, then firefox 45, ArcticFox). Please.

    Working Link to test youtube HTML5 features ( yes I post this link for those of you who don't know this link, not for you):




    Latest bnavigator (Borealis) bnavigator.win32-20200104-beb2221f-uxp-26b297510-xpmod - check to remove uBlock O. - so NOT usable by me...I would like to have the uBlock O., uMatrix etc, sorry...

    - latest version of your Borealis working with uBlock Origin is from 20190907 ...

    > RFox ... RFox 28, RFox 52, RFox 55 ...

    As long as the "R" is undefined, it could stand for "Roy" but also for "Retro" (systems)

    And RIGHT Fox ... the one we're supposed to have, looking to get.

    Indeed, everyone can guess the meaning of the letter R according to his or her taste - this denomination has the mysterious charm, leads to freedom, more freedom.
    As an icon, I already see two letters: RF - the color of fire on the background graded to yellow.
    Look on @ED_Sln nice avatar to get the idea of colors: light background passing to dark letters.
    While waiting for RoyTam1's decision, I retire in a quiet place...

    Hi roytam1,

    On Palemoon 27 accesing the site https://instant-monitor.com will cause CPU hogging as dozens of MSVCR120.dll threads start spawning and eating CPU. Worse, these threads will keep running even after closing the site and I had to terminate "palemoon.exe" process to get it to release the system resources ...

    This problem does not happens when accessing other sites, so I think it might be a bug of some kind.


    All these moving are the video-thumbnails with autoplay on loop mode - so right click / unnotch "loop" mode on each one of these moving video-thumbnails.

    Or right click / click "Pause" on each one of these...

    Or in about:config media.autoplay.enabled set to false.

    Or download SuperStop extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/superstop/?src=search - then you have to click Shift then Esc keyboard buttons to stop all animations on your tab - awesome addon! "SuperStop adds a Shift+Esc shortcut that stops background requests and animations..."

    Voilà miraculous event results here: CPU usage from 95 to 100% - decrease to 0%. That's all...instant-medication.:rolleyes:

    ..for all Firefox based browsers...
