New build of Serpent/UXP for XP!

Test binary:
Win32 https://o.rths.cf/basilisk/basilisk52-g4.1.win32-git-20190323-0d9f3396a-xpmod.7z
Win64 https://o.rths.cf/basilisk/basilisk52-g4.1.win64-git-20190323-0d9f3396a-xpmod.7z

source code that is comparable to my current working tree is available here: https://github.com/roytam1/UXP/commits/custom

NM28XP build:
Win32 https://o.rths.cf/palemoon/palemoon-28.5.0a1.win32-git-20190323-0d9f3396a-xpmod.7z
Win64 https://o.rths.cf/palemoon/palemoon-28.5.0a1.win64-git-20190323-0d9f3396a-xpmod.7z

Official repo changes since my last build:
- [EME] Make WidevineAdapter compatible with CDM version 9 (1fa998d89)
- [EME} Hackily implement cdm::Host_9::RequestStorageId (6310310e0)
- [EME] Update content_decryption_module.h to more recent revision (34bfc1f40)
- [EME] Add content_decryption_module_ext.h (8279f15d4)
- [EME] Cherry-pick fix for content_decryption_module.h (e1d7634ba)
...

- [EME] Remove WidevineDecryptor::OnLegacySessionError (cece1cb71)

Encrypted Media Extensions? On PM/NM? I thought MCP had a law against those ;)

I suspect Widevine is nonetheless useless on XP, but I'm curious whether it now works on Vista with this update.

I found a bug (?) in Serpent/UXP (at the moment I'm using 2019.03.23, but the two previous versions also manifest it). Go to this site https://www.nature.com/immersive/d42859-019-00001-7/index.html, click on "Enter the site", then click on any of the element symbols presented, the on the image related to the same element that appears, then an entry text corresponding to that element will appear. At ths point move slowly down with the mouse until a crash on plugin-container.exe. By dismissing it one can continue browsing normally but the crash will reappear more times, until one closes the Interative Periodic Table site tab, after which action it won't reappear, unless one goes once again to that site and repeats the above procedure. It's harmless, but it's a bug nonetheless, so I'm reporting it. Attached is some more info.

I've had that problem with seamonkey for YEARS. And I've used noscript for a very long time. It never helped, but I did allow some scripts for ebay to work. If I really want to buy something badly, I can persist and eventually get it to work, but very slow with all the hangups.  I can't run any seamonkey version later than 2.40 though, because of my old  amd processor (has the curse of no magic sse stuff:)

Could you say what script sources you allowed, if any?

Thanks!

none are enabled for ebay, but i have not tried purchasing, only browsing

The site seems to work correctly with Flash disabled.

If disabling Flash doesn't help try it on Win 7. Could be an XP incompatibility within whatever plug-in is involved (surely it doesn't use Java?)

Well, it does work without crashing on Chrome 49.0.2623.112 m (with pepper Flash 32.0.0.156 enabled)... which is good enough for me.

From my laptop:
In new moon and basilisk, the browser freezes up (consuming 50% cpu during this) on ebay item pages and the amazon login screen. It does not seem to matter whether or not "use hardware acceleration" is on, and I have tried every GPU driver version available for my ATi mobility radeon x1300 with no difference.

However these pages work fine on my other computers.

:dubbio:

I have had problems with Ebay freezing up on Firefox and Palemoon. There is some part of a script on their own domains (rather than being one of the third party ones) that will freeze and make the browser go "not responding" but eventually it will time out and you can use the site. It happens most on item pages and has been happening for over a year. It also sometimes happens on Chrome. This is what my findings are in relation to the Ebay problem.

- It freezes on my home computer. Windows 7 x86 with Firefox and Palemoon, but not with Chrome.
- It freezes on my work computer, Windows 7 x86 with Chrome and Firefox.

I will note that the freeze with Chrome on my work computer is very short, perhaps 1-2 seconds. I only notice it because I have all theme stuff in Windows disabled, so I can see the title bar change every time I click on an item page. When Chrome is skinned, you do not see this happen.

And I agree, I can't find any reason for it in particular. Graphic settings all on or all off. I can see the issue in the inspector, but it comes from Ebay.com itself, some script that is obfusicated that I can't tell what it is trying to do. I think they just have some optimization issues on their end. And since they had redesigned their cart/payment portal to be for mobile browsers, we can imagine that the desktop experience is not high on their list of priorities. :rolleyes:

Same problem for me on eBay; it's especially bad when trying to scroll on certain parts of the page, it can sometimes stick for 30 seconds or more before resuming.

Many sites today are script-intensive and it appears overwhelming at times, even for the most up to date browsers.

One of the reasons why I use Noscript.

Those who don't like this extension can also use uMatrix for Pale Moon.
