For Moebius to get Primetime working, in addition to the prefs that have to be added in along with the gmp-eme-adobe folder there's a couple of obscure prefs that have to be changed back. Apparently even when copying over the profile from UXP to Moebius they're automatically given new values:

media.gmp.decoder.aac
media.gmp.decoder.h264

Change these from 0 to 2.

Primetime instructions:

https://msfn.org/board/topic/175591-enable-mp4-h264-aac-html5-video-in-firefox-on-windows-xp-without-flash/

Fortunately for me the built-in decoder works fine and is much preferable to using the buggy plugin-container.exe but it's an extra option to have just in case.

I have PMXP-SSE. if it crashes nothing is lost it will find his way back to last position.

videos now running quite good.

Only can download them from YT with CYS. elsewhere onlinevideoconverter needed.  difference: resolution with CYS is lower.
https://www.onlinevideoconverter.com/youtube-converter

In forums with login(free) only loging prevents from using the onlinevideoconverter/youtube-converter
Remember: SSE here!
-------------------------------------------

https://www.downfk.com/ not tested
UPDATE: Facebookvideoconverter Only!

------------------------------------------------

Sooner or later I will post a workaround for those who dont want/ can dig-around all the messages.

Yes have read about the Primetime CDM. Maybe someone could write a turorial to understand what and which and why. Its going to be much complicated here, isnt it?
Its not easy making old pc running again. everything is so important. lately could install updates. thanks to NFW4 reinstallation. There  is much Intuition needed to handle all the problem. Good i have over 25 years of computer-experience from 286 to Dualcore(only) win7-64!
Its fantastic how PMXP is learning. dont have to make a lot of installations when new update must run. So do i need the installer? i have been saved updates in new folder.
How do i have to handle SSE-updates? I am using seperate folder to avoid mess if new version makes troubles. how to run the installer? is the bug solved?
Portable FF :
I have FF
45.9.14 i dont see ESR(is this Firefox own designation) seems from PM-community.
Is this the portable version if i dont see in Software, right?

Something strange to report. As from this morning when I visit the forum NM is using 100% cpu. Mypal performs a bit better using 70 to 60 %, while ff52 and basilisk use basically 0% when idle for example reading the contents of a thread. This is why I used ff to convey this message ( CPU usage was 0% while typing} . I did clear cookies and history however the problem persists. Any ideas on that ? @roytam1

Cheers

You must block Google's scripts!

My filters uBlock Origin:

@kitaro1 Thank you so much. I reckon it kind of work. My cpu from 100% went down to something between 40% and 50% when visiting this forum..

My filters ublock origin I inserted the following :

msfn.org/.googlesyndication.com

I trust it is the right syntax

Edit 1 : However when I sign in it shoots up to 100%. Just now turned it off for this site as I had always done before and in a matter of 15 seconds cpu went down to 2.9 %. I guess either the forum or my browser is a bit moody as it seems.

Edit2  Back to 100% I reckon there might be something wrong with the forum.

Just to let you know everything is ok now. No more high cpu usage whether signed in or not.

@kitaro1 I used your suggestion on this other streaming site I had been having trouble with and worked like a charm. 

Edit 1 : Also another thing that may have contributed to that may have been some conflicting settings on ublock and adguard. After sorting that out cpu usage is minimum all over the place really. :)

Thank you.

... Using more than one content-blockers at the same time is inadvisable :no::

https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock#note-for-all-browsers

More is... less ;) in this case; uBlock Origin and Adguard are both competent in what they do, so choose the one or the other (I use the - Russian made - Adguard solution in my Yandex Browser (17.6.0) copy and I find it can satisfactorily replace uB0 :) ).

Just my two (euro)cents, of course... :lol:

Hi,

Have any MSFN members replaced their email client with MailNews Win32?

Any problem with accounts migration?

TH.

@VistaLover Inadvertently changed my adguard settings. Actually there were supposed to be as depicted below.

I am aware thet I can get the nocoin list f ublock origin. I prefer to use adguard spyware filter since it is more complete than ublock's adguard spyware filter and also because of the phising malware protection provided by adguard and not by ublock.

You are absolutely right.

Thank you

Still using Thunderbird 52.9.1 on XP but I did try MailNews and the accounts migrated fine.

What's interesting is that moebius (firefox 53) works on XP and W2k. There were call function problems that kept us from using it on these OSs since it was designed for Win7+ but obviously these were overcome. I would think the same then could be done for Thunderbird 60esr depending on how many additional call functions were added that XP could not load. Not that I want to give Roy any more work, just wanted to throw that out there that the newer versions probably could be made to run.

Well 60 ESR is quite a bit further along than 53 and uses FF's Quantum rendering engine. (In fact, AIUI that's why Mozilla delayed the ESR releases from 59 to 60 this time around; they didn't want another pre-Quantum ESR to maintain.) I'm sure with enough time and effort anything is possible, but it would be much harder to backport anything using Quantum to XP, even if it's "just" an email client.

Is there anything in particular you're looking to get from Thunderbird 60 ESR?

No not really other than any additional security updates to the program, some of which I assume are being ported to MailNews. I do use it on Win 7 and functionally it doesn't do much more than 52, all of the same legacy addons still work.

It's the transition to quantum that all but makes porting the newer firefox versions impossible and chances are I wouldn't use it much anyway even if it they could manage it.
