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

Recommended Posts

Off Topic:

For getting idea how Firefox 57 is incompatible with older Windows, I tried to compile it from source.

There is a list of Missing APIs in XP (* in front of DLL = missing DLL)

In MOZGLUE.DLL:
KERNEL32.DLL
InitializeConditionVariable
WakeConditionVariable
WakeAllConditionVariable
SleepConditionVariableCS
InitializeCriticalSectionEx
GetTickCount64

In XUL.DLL:
KERNEL32.DLL
SleepConditionVariableSRW
WakeConditionVariable
InitializeConditionVariable
SleepConditionVariableCS
WakeAllConditionVariable
K32QueryWorkingSet
K32GetProcessMemoryInfo
GetCurrencyFormatEx
GetNumberFormatEx
ResolveLocaleName
GetDateFormatEx
GetTimeFormatEx
GetUserDefaultLocaleName
LocaleNameToLCID
GetLocaleInfoEx
GetUserPreferredUILanguages
LCIDToLocaleName
InitializeCriticalSectionEx
AcquireSRWLockShared
AcquireSRWLockExclusive
ReleaseSRWLockShared
ReleaseSRWLockExclusive
InitializeSRWLock
TryAcquireSRWLockExclusive
K32EnumProcessModules
K32GetModuleFileNameExW
K32GetProcessImageFileNameW
GetFinalPathNameByHandleW
InitOnceExecuteOnce
GetProcessIdOfThread
QueryFullProcessImageNameW
K32GetModuleInformation

USER32.DLL
GetTouchInputInfo
RegisterTouchWindow
GetGestureInfo
CloseGestureInfoHandle
SetGestureConfig
UnregisterPowerSettingNotification
RegisterPowerSettingNotification
CloseTouchInputHandle

ADVAPI32.DLL
RegGetValueW

SHELL32.DLL
SHGetKnownFolderPath
SHOpenWithDialog
SHQueryUserNotificationState
SHGetPropertyStoreForWindow
SetCurrentProcessExplicitAppUserModelID
SHCreateItemFromParsingName
SHGetStockIconInfo

*AVRT.DLL
AvRevertMmThreadCharacteristics
AvSetMmThreadCharacteristicsA

OLE32.DLL
CoGetApartmentType

WS2_32.DLL
inet_pton
inet_ntop

*DWMAPI.DLL

DwmGetCompositionTimingInfo
DwmIsCompositionEnabled
DwmFlush

UpdatePanningFeedback

*API-MS-WIN-CORE-WINRT-L1-1-0.DLL
RoGetActivationFactory

*API-MS-WIN-CORE-WINRT-STRING-L1-1-0.DLL
WindowsCreateStringReference

And for example, grepping K32GetModuleInformation in source tree shows:

Roy@roy-srv /d/test/firefox-57.0 $ grep -r K32GetModuleInformation *
Binary file obj-i686-pc-mingw32/dist/bin/xul.dll matches

Binary file obj-i686-pc-mingw32/toolkit/library/xul.dll matches
Binary file obj-i686-pc-mingw32/toolkit/library/xul.pdb matches
Binary file obj-i686-pc-mingw32/tools/profiler/generated.pdb matches
Binary file obj-i686-pc-mingw32/tools/profiler/shared-libraries-win32.obj matches
third_party/rust/kernel32-sys/src/lib.rs:    pub fn K32GetModuleInformation(
third_party/rust/kernel32-sys-0.1.4/src/lib.rs:    pub fn K32GetModuleInformation(

So I have no clue how to deal with it. :(

All user32/uxtheme function can be stubbed out. You already know how to fix dwmapi codes. Avrt don't make sense to me I hope it can be stubbed.

inet_ntop & inet_pton implementation from xompie are good one.

CoGetApartmentType can be replaced with a XP function which I forgotten.

K32 function can redirected to psapi by removing word k32 from beginning.

Preferred UI languages can be stubbed with out any issue.

LCIDToLocaleName Can be stubbed.

For other API one core API has implementation.

https://github.com/Skulltrail192/One-Core-Api

Just some little concern from my poor knowledge.

Not bad, but it might confuse Windows 2000 users. NT 5 implies being compatible also with Windows 2000, which it is not.

OK. Then I second your proposal of:  "New Moon XP"

You might still be in to something with NT 5.x. I assume that New Moon still is compatible with Server 2003 R2 since it shares code with XP. Of course there's no guarantee New Moon works with vanilla Server 2003.

Perhaps New Moon XP/03? Pronounced "XP-oh-three"?

Or, "XP-oh-three-are-2"? It kind of rolls off the tongue.

Could you please share your source code for a portable launcher?

Also, seems like last version (2017-11-21) of New Moon doesn't like it for some reason, e.g. bookmark tab disappears after start. But the same version with PortableApps launcher isn't affected.

I've been a fan of Pale Moon since before it became more widely known (been using it since around the end of 2015) and I must say this is some great work that has been put into making it compatible with ol' NT 5.1! :)

I'm having no problems on NT 5.1.2600.5512 fully updated - no POSready 2009 patches - using a build from around last Friday or so.

Thanks, now my XP netbook is ready to go and works rather well with the Internet, and also means I don't have to deal with deprecated Chrome backports (SlimJet), the odd forced ClearType glitch (Firefox/SeaMonkey) and spyware (Maxthon).

I really appreciate the work you put in this. Thanks again, I don't think I can thank you enough ^.^

> NewMoonXP? It emphasizes New Moon's mission to serve XP, just as TenFourFox serves Mac OS X 10.4 users.

A new moon can't be seen (it's below the horizon) so:
FauxMoon -> FOMoon -> FiveOneMoon

> third_party/rust/kernel32-sys/src/lib.rs: pub fn K32GetModuleInformation(

Most of these new dependencies are likely in third party code, not the core code. Or they might be generated by newer compilers.

How to avoid such dependency?

It most likely is compatible with Server 2003, as it works on XP x64 (which shares its kernel version 5.2 and its APIs with Server 2003). That's what the 64-bit build is for anyway: XP x64 and Server 2003 x64, as there are no 64-bit NT 5.1 systems, that's all NT 5.2.

Edit: I just tested the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of New Moon on Windows Server 2003 x64 Standard. Works fine, as expected.

Already posted.

And my portable launcher is just the same as running ' start "" palemoon.exe -no-remote -profile .\profile ' batch file, but works without the help of cmd.exe.

Rather than create an OS stub, modify the source to assume failure (or success) and remove the call. If an api is called multiple times, it might be easier to redefine it:

#define IsUserWin10Fanboy() FALSE
if (IsUserWin10Fanboy()) {...}



Or remove the third-party module entirely.

Actually you can't get rid of this (rust) because it is mandatory since 55.0 release.

Is there any build only with SSE, without SSE2, for CPU's like AthlonXP, with LAV codec ?

I currentry use 3dsparty SSE version  26.5.0 from official site, but there is seems no LAV codecs support for HTML5 video, even if I copy these dll from first post.
