  1. All versions Adobe Flash Player newer than contain a time-bomb. After 12-Jan-2021 local SWF-files does not playback. The latest working version is Use a virtual machine to check. Install the Adobe Flash Player and set the clock to January 2021.
  2. Good news. Guru JustOff has released a fork of the "Windscribe VPN" extension. For Pale Moon, MyPal, New Moon e.t.c. https://github.com/JustOff/moonscribe/releases Windscribe VPN service - https://windscribe.com/ Need registration on any email. 10Gb monthly limit on a free account. Checked in New Moon 28.10.1 and MyPal 28.10.0. Works great.
  3. Hello. Found bug here. Menu "Tools" -> "Preferences" -> tab "Advanced" is broken.

  4. Two words? Not informative. In my country, censorship blocks access to many sites. The above methods work fine for me.
  5. Oh yeah! It's a working great. Thank you!
  6. I checked https://o.rths.ml/basilisk/basilisk52-g4.5.win32-git-20200229-6e6ffb8-uxp-ae8eb4d4c-xpmod.7z Unfortunately, installed plugins do not work and are invisible in about: addons.

  7. I have repeatedly written about a problem with plugin support. https://msfn.org/board/topic/180462-my-browser-builds-part-2/?do=findComment&comment=1177415 https://msfn.org/board/topic/180462-my-browser-builds-part-2/?do=findComment&comment=1177422 https://msfn.org/board/topic/180462-my-browser-builds-part-2/?do=findComment&comment=1177760
  8. Another option is to use the built-in WinXP VPN client. Create a new connection using free PPTP or L2TP servers. For example - http://www.nlfreevpn.com/ https://freevpn.me/accounts/ https://www.vpnbook.com/#pptpvpn
  9. 1) Windscribe VPN - https://windscribe.com/ Need registration on any email. 10Gb monthly limit on a free account. Add-on v.0.1.61 for FF52 - https://www.upload.ee/files/11196640/windscribe-0.1.61-fx.xpi.html (versions newer 0.1.61 do not work in FF52). Note: in about:config parameter "network.cookie.cookieBehavior" should be set to 0, 1 or 3. Also available client for WinXP - https://assets.windscribe.com/desktop/win/Windscribe_1.80.exe 2) Browsec VPN. Add-on v. for FF52 - https://www.upload.ee/files/11196624/browsec- No registration required. Four countries are available. Unoficial build - no banner, no google-analytics. Note: in about:config parameter "network.cookie.cookieBehavior" should be set to 0, 1 or 3.
  10. Sites are sometimes overloaded (many requests) and auto-updating may be unsuccessful. Manual updates are also sometimes unsuccessful. Especially at "rush hour" in the evening. I am doing only manual update.
  11. 1.17.4 very old release (Dec 2018) and it does not correctly handle current rules in filters. There is no point in using 1.17.4 on FF 52, Palemoon, Basilisk and other Gecko/Goanna browsers. RU AdList author & maintainer said (Google translated): "... uBlock Origin v1.17.4 is basically incompatible with FF 52.9, like any other Gecko versions of Firefox. As I recall, it drops 100% of the scriptlet rules ..." Specially for Gecko / Goanna browsers, there is a separate uBO 1.16.4.xx branch, which the author (gorhill) maintains in an up-to-date state. Latest version was released Feb 17, 2020.
  12. Alas, plugins are still missing. It is sad. No Widevine CDM plugin, no OpenH264 plugin. Flash working.
  13. I have Thinkpad T42 with 2200BG card and WinXP Pro SP3 (POSready updates up to May 2019). Driver version Wi-Fi works stably. The problem of working wi-fi cards on Intel chips (including 2200BG) is associated with the KB4089694 update. If you installed update KB4089694, remove it in the usual way. This should solve the problem. Post on forum.ru-board: https://forum.ru-board.com/topic.cgi?forum=62&topic=30840&start=180#16 Google translated: "... Today I checked Wi-Fi again after installing update KB4089694 on 2 laptops Acer1692, Acer1694. The lack of Internet access was confirmed. Removed KB4089694, rebooted - Wi-Fi restored. Perhaps this malfunction appears only with certain types of Wi-Fi adapters. In both cases, the card type is Intel (R) PRO / Wireless 2200BG Network Connection, driver version, the system is everywhere WinXP Pro original and licensed, until KB4089694 was released and previous updates were installed, I did not have problems with Internet access via Wi- Fi ...".
  14. Tricks or not - I do not know. But Widevine CDM and OpenH264 plugins disappeared in the latest build. I rolled back to the previous build, where all the plugins are visible. Maybe something will clear up over time.
  15. Hi, roytam1! Maybe you know why upstream broke DRM support? I have the Widevine CDM plugin version installed. But in the last build Serpent, the plugin disappeared in the section about:addons -> Plugins. Plugin files are located in \profile\gmp-widevinecdm\\ and in about:config the following parameters are set: media.gmp-provider.enabled = true media.gmp-widevinecdm.version = media.gmp-widevinecdm.autoupdate = false media.gmp-widevinecdm.enabled = true media.gmp-widevinecdm.forceSupported = true media.gmp-widevinecdm.visible = true To check the DRM demo, I went to the site https://drm.axinom.com/bitmovin-and-unified-streaming/ and saw the message "Your browser does not support DRM. Try again with PlayReady or Widevine enabled browser." At the same time, the following lines appeared in the browser console (Ctrl+Shift+J): Checking Widevine support. Checking PlayReady support. PlayReady not supported. MediaKeySystemAccess::GetKeySystemStatus(com.widevine.alpha) result=cdm-not-installed msg='CDM is not installed' Widevine not supported. navigator.requestMediaKeySystemAccess promise rejected 0x80530009 'Gave up while waiting for a CDM update' No checked DRM not supported: Error: Can't get fulfillment value from any promise, all promises were rejected. In the previous Serpent build, the Widevine CDM plugin was available and worked. Serpent will no longer support DRM?
