My build of New Moon (temp. name) a.k.a. Pale Moon for XP

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately Skia support doesn't work good in this last version.

Before I used gfx.content.azure.backends = direct2d1.1,skia,cairo and all was alrght, but now it leads to wrong Palemoon interface.

If you use direct2d1.1,skia,cairo = direct2d1.1,cairo (default), it is OK, but fonts are pale and thin (compared vs direct2d1.1,skia,cairo).

Correct it, please. Thanks.

 

test in official unstable build please. (also test my binary in newer windows as well)

if problem persists in official build, report a bug to them.

(P.S.: there is another user created ticket for this issue: https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/UXP/issues/976 , and I can just revert it in my local tree for now)

EDIT: all 20190216 build archives have been refreshed

EDIT2: reverted commit has been pushed to branches

@roytam1 <-- Did make (URL above) the following (Borealis) 'BOC/UXP for XP' Browser Change (restoration)

"My changes since my last build:
- restored GOOGLE "Translate Page" menu item"

THANKS!!!  :)  Hope this was NOT difficult in terms of YOUR time. I did not notice it in (Menu: TOOLS) at first.
It is CONVENIENT to use 'ALT-T' then 'T' (keyboard) for full page GOOGLE Translation.

It is working fine with (occasional prompt) RECAPTCHA here.

One problem introduced by the PM team's change is that Basilisk will will now accept add-ons that won't work anymore since it identifies as 52.9.something. So to keep Basilisk from auto-updating legacy add-ons to now-incompatible WE add-ons, the PM team changed the "get add-ons" site from AMO to a new one they're setting up (not ready yet) for Basilisk: http://addons.basilisk-browser.org.

But @roytam1's builds retain Basilisk's original WE support :worship:, so the change to "get add-ons" keeps any WE add-ons from auto-updating properly. But I think this can be fixed by just changing these about:config prefs: extensions.update.background.url and extensions.update.url, back to addons.mozilla.org.

Checked an old Basilisk version and I believe you can restore auto-update of your WE add-ons by changing both prefs above to

https://addons.mozilla.org/?component=aus&reqVersion=%REQ_VERSION%&id=%ITEM_ID%&version=%ITEM_VERSION%&maxAppVersion=%ITEM_MAXAPPVERSION%&status=%ITEM_STATUS%&appID=%APP_ID%&appVersion=%APP_VERSION%&appOS=%APP_OS%&appABI=%APP_ABI%&locale=%APP_LOCALE%&currentAppVersion=%CURRENT_APP_VERSION%&updateType=%UPDATE_TYPE%&compatMode=%COMPATIBILITY_MODE%

(Note: the "Get Add-Ons" page will still go to the new Basilisk add-ons site.)

It's not a perfect solution: since AMO has removed all legacy add-ons, those won't auto-update. But legacy add-ons aren't getting a lot of updates these days anyhow. The main exception is if you're using the legacy version of uBO like me; hopefully JustOff's uBO Updater should take care of that one.

Easy download from VOD PL?
And what to download? Extension?

https://vod.tvp.pl/video/ojciec-mateusz,odc-100-sklep-z-zabawkami,8286051

... First of all, your request is rather off-topic for this thread; second, TVP media content is geo-fenced, accessible from whitelisted Polish IPs, only ... :angry: However, as with many media (video/audio) portals, your best bet lies with youtube-dl; it is a CLI (Command-Line-Interface) application, the pre-compiled Windows executable (youtube-dl.exe) is XP-compatible (built with Python 3.4.4); I had to find a working whitelisted Polish HTTP proxy (you won't be needing that if you're inside Poland ;)) and I had no issue fetching to disk:

Several streaming methodologies are implemented, from HTTP progressive download (http-* modes), to Smooth Streaming (mss-video-* + mss-audio-175), to AdobeHDS (hds-* modes), to AppleHLS (hls-* modes); say I want the 960x540 encode (SD) over http-progressive, then I'd type:

I think it's a losing battle. Add-on developers aren't going to start maintaining their legacy code again just because of Basilisk, so this would just make Basilisk a less useful FF 52 fork.

... Especially when the likes of Matt A. Tobin drive away the very few that express such an intention:

Moonchild takes the position that legacy addons no longer need to be updated since they will always work in their browsers.

That may be true for the most part but not for all of them. Newer addons that are interactive with the site, such as Enhancer for YouTube are constantly being updated for the simple fact that google is forever changing things.

Legacy addons that used to do that are now either broken to some extent or completely useless since the developers have abandoned them. And at some point Raymond Hill will end development of legacy uBO, it's just a matter of time.

That's why there's a need for webextension support whether most of us like it or not.

Super! Thank you very much. A suggestion was enough. I found the Youtube-DLG portable 96MB GUI. Slowly, but it gets from VOD. : D

(you and other eventual users: ) Be advised that:

1. This is NOT a true portable version, as it stores logs, settings and actually downloads youtube-dl.exe in "%APPDATA%\youtube-dlg" directory :angry:; there's an open issue for this at https://github.com/MrS0m30n3/youtube-dl-gui/issues/65

2. The binaries of FFmpeg+FFprobe bundled with the package are NOT XP compatible (require Win7+); you should replace them with XP-compat ones (e.g. v3.0 from VideoHelp archive).

3. The project appears to have become an abandonware, at least for Windows users :realmad:; last Windows release (0.4.0) was July 2017 (though last commit activity was Oct 2018 :huh:); in any case, I'm happy myself just using the CLI ;)

What problem?
I have no problem with me.
In my XP ffmpeg with github is installed.
FFmpeg-N-86763-g341f012-win32-shared_legacy.
I downloaded a portable version from direct links - https://www.dobreprogramy.pl/YoutubeDLG,Program,Windows,86713.html

https://www.virustotal.com/pl/file/4fed7cb6aa66e48b3344620e627c5fa4e8e92716db81e13683ea09dabf049b08/analysis/

I unpacked, launched, set and downloaded 19 films. Success.
I did not play with the links. After starting the movie on VOD, I pasted the URL from the address bar. In the program I added the URL of subsequent videos. I downloaded.

No problems.

The trick is that I block advertisements, harmful content and pop-ups, and so I have set that the websites do not detect blocking. I have good links in the address bar and unmodified to paste into youtube dll gui portable.
Youtube dong gui portable is cool !!!

... Especially when the likes of Matt A. Tobin drive away the very few that express such an intention:

https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=44&amp;t=21149

They said they were using New Moon; can't be sure, but it seems likely that refers to @roytam1's fork. But then the wrong word was mentioned: WindowsXP. That pretty much cuts off any discussion with Tobin. "New Moon is not Pale Moon!" Geez, Matt, no one said it was; will you help me port my add-ons to PM or not?

Does the add-on developer follow this thread? Tobin et al. may not be interested, but I bet folks here would be and many of us could help.

It's this kind of ridiculous nonsense that, in part, has caused the situation where we only have ond or two mainstream options when it comes to browsers. 

If he'd be a bit more open minded and do what some other developers have done ("we don't support XP or Vista anymore; our software may still work, but it's untested, so try it at your own risk, and don't expect us to help you if anything goes wrong")  PM could've been much more open. Instead, his attitude is, "I refuse to let my software run on anything not supported by MS, and anyone trying to do so is banned from any discussion".

What an excellent way to push users away!

@adatatried changing user agent?

As for PaleMoon thread, I don't want to be treated as one of MC haters... but unintended autoirony always pleases me :)
