  1. Seems Im not the only person with Windows 9x facing issues that pages especially the https ones wont open on either firefox and or Opera 12. But it does seem that not only that more and more pages by default use https:// at the beginning of their urls they also disallow to open in http:// (port 80) so forcing https to be used in the users browsers. Thats an issue for Windows 9x users (and maybe also 2000?) since not all browsers really have the support for Http/2 (or h/2) and especially Windows 9x lacks support of this. This issue is bigger than the one that youtube wont support flash anymore (and most pages by 2020) because even if your hardware supports this it probably wont support h/2. You could argue that Firefox and Opera partly had SPDY support, but the versions most pages use are not pure http/2 and in others cases spdy/3.1 (none of both have support for any Windows 9x browser so far I know). That also means that probably if this trend continues one day just a few webpages will be possible to run under Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME without extra help of lets say proxies or similiar. What I find interesting: Some https websites will load with no issues, but most I know wont open at all and will just give you an message that the page cannot be reached or is not available. This is annoying, we cant do much about this I think. But if someone has experiences like if this is TLS related and so one, you can share this info here.
  2. Firefox 53 on windows 2000

    I could install firefox 53 on windows 2000 exkernel 29e (localized german version). A few things dont work: It is possible to download files into standard download directory. It is NOT possible to change it. Screenshot: I installed on windows 7 and tested with Process Explorer - files are loaded when click "search": audiodev.dll, wpdshext.dll, wmvcore.dll, wmasf.dll, gdiplus.dll, msftedit.dll. Also thumbcache_xxx.dll's. In windows 2000, none of them are loaded. If I choose the second possibility "Ask me" and try to download a file: Screenshot: It is not possible to save the file. It is also not possible to upload files; but drag and drop works! I did not find dependencies of firefox.exe or xul.dll to one of the above files, e.g. gdiplus or msftedit. But I found missing depends of wow_helper.exe with kernel32.dll: RtlLookupFunctionEntry, RtlPcToFileHeader, RtlUnwindEx, RtlVirtualUnwind. Perhaps our Guru blackwingcat can help, also any other comments are appreciated. Greetings from Austria, *longlivew2k*, Joe

  4. Hello everyone! I have been using Mozilla Firefox ESR as my main Web browser for the big "social media" which demand all the latest "HTML5" and JavaScript dingledongles and multimedia support. I have just received a notification that the latest update, 52.6.0 ESR, is now available for download. I read the release notes and it says that the update includes a patch to mitigate the new Spectre vulnerability. Before I irreversibly alter my system by updating, I wonder Would this update cause intolerable slowdown to a browser which is tasked daily with loading some of the slowest, most horrible Web sites ever to be constructed, or Would it be stupid to forgo this update because of the security risk, being online, as well as all the other security updates that are part of this package. Thanks, Thomas
  5. I happened to stumble across some links in Mozilla's FTP, and came across some Firefox builds that were never officially released. For example, I downloaded the ZIP file for US English Firefox 45.9.1; I believe the final public release was 45.9.0 because I couldn't find the release notes for 45.9.1. I wonder why 45.9.1 wasn't officially released. Firefox ESR 45.x is unique as it is the final ESR to run on SSE only processors such as the Pentium/Pentium II/Pentium III. http://bucketlister-delivery.prod.mozaws.net/pub/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-esr45-win32/ In there, the very first build is 45.0: http://bucketlister-delivery.prod.mozaws.net/pub/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-esr45-win32/1456425508/ The last build: http://bucketlister-delivery.prod.mozaws.net/pub/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-esr45-win32/1497368434/ You can find the other earlier/later builds here: http://bucketlister-delivery.prod.mozaws.net/pub/firefox/tinderbox-builds/ You'll notice I have deliberately spoofed the user agent for Firefox 52, so I don't get silly messages that my browser is out of date.
  6. NoScript, Firebug, and other popular Firefox add-on extensions are opening millions of end users to a new type of attack that can surreptitiously execute malicious code and steal sensitive data, a team of researchers reported. The attack is made possible by a lack of isolation in Firefox among various add-ons installed by an end user. The underlying weakness has been described as an extension reuse vulnerability because it allows an attacker-developed add-on to conceal its malicious behavior by invoking the capabilities of other add-ons. Instead of directly causing a computer to visit a booby-trapped website or download malicious files, the add-on exploits vulnerabilities in popular third-party add-ons that allow the same nefarious actions to be carried out. Of the top 10 most popular add-ons vetted by Mozilla officials and made available on the Mozilla website, only Adblock Plus was found to contain no flaws that could be exploited by a malicious add-on that relied on reuse vulnerabilities. Besides NoScript, Video DownloadHelper, Firebug, Greasemonkey, and FlashGot Mass Down all contained bugs that made it possible for the malicious add-on to execute malicious code. Many of those apps, and many others analyzed in the study, also made it possible to steal browser cookies, control or access a computer's file system, or to open webpages to sites of an attacker's choosing.

  7. Mozilla has just eliminated a crucial security component of the Firefox web browser. The cookie control setting “Ask me every time” is now gone. It was deleted from FF 44. In addition, Mozilla DIDN’T TELL ANYONE and automatically changed the related Firefox option setting to “Accept [cookies] … Always”, for everyone. And that's ALL cookies, not just third-party cookies. This feature was the #1 reason why I and so many moved to Firefox in the first place – instant fine-tuned easy-to-use control over cookies before they stick. There is no substitute. Because Mozilla didn’t announce this, and because there is no visible sign of the disappearance of this important feature, most users don’t know that they are now allowing cookies that stick. There are two very good threads about this: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2987945 and http://www.ghacks.net/2016/02/05/firefox-44ask-me-everytime-cookie-option-removed/#comment-3819357 To all the experts here at MSFN -- I hope you know what I’m describing. I’m NOT a tech. I’m only a real estate lawyer. But this was truly an essential feature of Firefox. Without it, Firefox is no more secure than Chrome or anything else. Probably less. Why is Mozilla going backwards? What’s its motive? Because MSFN is an unusually knowledgeable group, and because this tourist would like to see Mozilla change its mind, I urge all MSFN participants to re-post and re-send this where it will do the most good. Can someone here start a movement? Thanks.
  8. Has anyone tested Firefox 29 and Firefox 30 on Windows 2000 with the latest version of UURollup? As far as I know, I recently switched to a new computer a few months back and as a result of this, I can no longer test new versions of Firefox on Windows 2000. Also, in Firefox 30, developers removed the dead OS/2 support code due to lack of contribution and the newer code that hasn't been able to work properly on OS/2.
  9. Hi there, I'm facing some... weird.. issues with DNS requests. I don't know exactly when it started but it has gone real bad in the past few days. Basically every 2-3 link I click / site I load in Firefox 27 leads to a "Server not found" error, forcing me to manually reload the site (one or a few times) until the site is loaded properly. First I thought that the issue was entirely FF related and I consulted a few similar issue threads accross the web, deactivated DNS prefechting and flushed my DNS. However I now noticed that other programs have issues as well (e.g. the Secure Download Manager, self written C# WebClient applications, Visual Studio update etc.). Does anybody have an idea where this issue might come from? I also tried determining the current DNS server I'm using using ipconfig but that just shows the IP of my U.S. Robotics Router and I couldn't find anything in the router settings either. Thanks in advance, Max
  10. Specs: WinXP Sp3, old single-core AthlonXp 2800+, 1500Gb ram, geforceFx 5200, 8Mbit connection, Firefox 19.0.2 (newer versions seem bad for memory) I've tested this even without other running programs, scanned for virus\malware, cleaned with CCleaner, checked running tasks\services and such. When I had Flash Player 10.3 I could see 480p videos on Youtube without any problem (720p, instead, is difficult for the old card). After 11.X in this year, the issues started: at early versions I got slowdowns\skips at 480p, then 360p, now with 11.8 even at 240p??? (but videos play fine in Vlc) I fed up, downloaded and downgraded back to 10.3 and.. even that skips at 360p.. WTF is happening, why can't I see the same content on the same computer with the same settings anymore?? Is Adobe messing badly with Flash Player? Does anyone have this problem with an old pc and Youtube? P.S: changing computer is an obvious solution, but I can't afford that right now.
