I have been working on an updated version of SeaMonkey 1.1.19 (Firefox 2) for Windows 95 and NT4. I plan to backport CSS features over from newer versions of the browser, as well as modify the browser to work better with the modern web and improve user experience on older OSes. (I plan to include an optional hosts file that blocks Facebook and Google Analytics URLs, which will speed up the web greatly.) Right now, it is just a rebrand, but I am working on newer features and I do accept contributors. GitHub Page Latest Release
Hi fellow glass8 fans, Since the last update to version 45.0 my Mozilla Thunderbird just ignores the glass window frame as well as the button theme. See screenshot. With Thunderbird 44.0 and earlier there was no problem. I tried to force a transparent title bar by UserChrome.css (workaround for Firefox to enable glass effect) but it did not work. Just wondered if anyone knows a workaround or found a solution for this issue? I guess it has to be fixed within Thunderbird, not within glass8. I am even willing to switch to another mail program, as long as it can import from tbird and looks good with glass8 (If you have any suggestions?)
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.
