I'm uncertain what the differences are between Feodor2 and Roytam1 releases, except that Roytam1 releases are based on Feodor2 patches.  Roytam1, what do you add or take away?

Too many to be listed, please check change log for details.

people may want to know how far can pm26w2k go, and it even runs in Win2000 Build 1946 (with advapi32.dll from build 2000.3)

Hello..

I created an account here to thank you for this awesome browser! Used PM years ago (stopped when they dropped support for xp) and stumbled upon this place just a few days ago and glad I did!

Working quite well so far!

Take good care everyone and glad to be a member of the forum :)

Is anyone with New Moon able to watch movie previews on IMDB?  (or is it just me)  What plugin is being used?

Watching this right now..

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls022466419/videoplayer/vi63290137?ref_=hm_cc_main_722_i_1

Not sure what player the site is using, but its whatever the default is.

Since I'm new and testing this browser, I'm not using any plugins. I did this because I wanted to prevent it from pick up old (insecure) plugins FF does from XP until I can get rid of ones I don't use  (Old Windows Presentations Foundation in my case), so I just toggled to false..

plugin.scan.plid.all

Okay.. was having some trouble with some youtube vids, I'm using a pretty strict prefs.js just to see what this browser can do in the most basic forum, went through and just reset everything searching about:conifg pertaining to video (form false back to their defaults) and no more trouble so far.

user_pref("media.hardware-video-decoding.failed", false)

user_pref("media.navigator.video.enabled", false)

user_pref("media.peerconnection.video.enabled", false); <--- don't like enabling any peerconnection settings if I don't have to - not sure that was even causing the issue though.

user_pref("media.video_stats.enabled", false);

So far its functioning quite well overall :)

I'm also someone who likes to keep settings as strict as possible, but Mozilla's pref jungle keeps growing wildly. Must be about 2000 prefs now, no chance anymore really :-(
Here's another video pref you might test, affecting html5-videos:

permissions.default.media=1/2/3
where:
1= allow all
2= block all
3= allow same domain

Quote

user_pref("media.peerconnection.video.enabled", false);


don't like enabling any peerconnection settings if I don't have to - not sure that was even causing the issue though.

 


Just a general tip in case you're not aware yet (or other readers), the easiest way to test single settings is on the about:config page. Because most changes there work immediately, without a browser restart. And you'll still discover your prefs.js was changed accordingly after next exit, because this is where about:config stores your changes.
If a line then has vanished inside prefs.js, that's just because you chose the browser's default setting, since only different settings are stored in the user profile prefs.js, not all thousands of default prefs.
To make sure a personal prefs list keeps those lines too, and also keeps user comment lines, and also keeps your own sorting order, and that it can only be edited by yourself, and that those prefs will be enforced again at next browser start, write them into "user.js". At every browser start the prefs in this file will function as startup prefs, overruling any different ones in prefs.js
(Just writing this because I wish anyone had explained it to me YEARS earlier)

Is anyone in Vista still not getting YouTube videos to play on v28, until they pause and press play again?  Any solutions?

:)

New Palemoon 27 Build!
* This build is on par with official 27.9.4 build.

32bit https://o.rthost.cf/palemoon/palemoon-27.9.1a1.win32-git-20180714-4038e3c24-xpmod.7z

Hi :) . It appears the Tycho platform for Pale (New) Moon 27.x.x has been EOL'd, as per 5da550a

Quote

This repository and incarnation of Pale Moon is no longer maintained.

So PM 27.9.4 will be (probably?) the last official stable (release) version on that platform (and the last to officially support Vista SP2 :angry:). Since you were building New Moon 27.x.x not from the release branch 27.9_RelBranch but from the master branch,  perhaps just recompile one final time, but you yourself update appVersion on the master branch to 27.9.5a1 (see c674a10) to make it more evident, beyond any doubt, that the code snapshot is some commits ahead of the last stable 27.9.4 release; just a humble suggestion for next weekend's eventual updates... :rolleyes:

- Port TenFourFox changes:

I didn't have the slightest what TenFourFox is, so after searching I found out it is a fork of Mozilla Firefox for Power Macs that has significantly diverged from Mozilla code after the 45 ESR milestone; for transparency, are those changes the ones designated as M* and where exactly their details are to be found (somewhere inside https://github.com/classilla/tenfourfox perhaps?) ?

Thanks for your ongoing hard work :worship:

yeah, I'm preparing a Tycho-history repo for a clean history (like my palemoon*-history repos)

yes, they ported upstream(mozilla-esr) changes into their repo, and I cherry-picked non-PowerPC exclusive patches into my repo, and M*** are actually bugzilla.mozilla.org bug numbers.
