PMXP NEWMOON 27 SSE 2019420 is showing up as old 2019413
UPDATE: happens when old version is still running!
i am keeping the versions seperated.
the three ffmpeg-files must be copied into the folder every time.
currently checking what must be adjusted in about:config.

AFTER A RESET THIS MUST BE ADJUSTED ONLY(in about:config).
media.mediasource.webm.enabled?   true  
there is an addon-on for quick access of about:config:
https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/open-about-config/
 

I am currently testing if some YT-video cannot be downloaded with CYS complete Youtube Saver. recognized downloading with this converter videos are of higher resolution wheras in CYS list the are not available but listed.  e.g Full HD showing !  will try again. btw: bin-folder of downloaded and extracted  ffmpeg -program must be aimed since its containing the exe. options are in the icon upper left side of adress-bad. download right of it under the down-arrow.
CYS now downloading Full HD also. I can swear in older version full hd download was not possible only HD but with this converter it was. it is also shown as link within netvideohunter addon which itself is not working. like downloadvideohelper.

that's normal since I don't clobber before build (full rebuilt just for updating date is not worthy)

Palemoon SSE/ PMXP SSE 27 adjustments in about:config  if running for the FIRST TIME:
If not there right click empty space and click BOLEAN anc copy  in and set true or false

Palemoon SSE Anpassungen/ADJUSTMENTS:

1. HTTPS Everywhere     5.2.21
http://matejhorvat.si/en/unfiled/pmxp/htps5221.xpi

NoScript     5.1.8.4   5.1.9 geht
http://matejhorvat.si/en/unfiled/pmxp/nosc5184.xpi
https://noscript.net/getit
Notice: you may need to open about:config and set your xpinstall.signatures.required preference to false in order to install NoScript 5.x, since Mozilla doesn't support signatures for legacy add-ons anymore.

2. ffmpeg
his version can use optional FFmpeg libraries to support additional HTML5 audio and video codecs. To use them, extract the DLL files into the application directory. On about:config, create a Boolean value called media.ffmpeg.enabled and set it to true.
a) ffmpeg files in palemoon-ordner kopieren/COPY TO PALEMOON-FOLDER
b) media.ffmpeg.enabled   true setzen/SET

3. Notice: you may need to open about:config and set your xpinstall.signatures.required preference to false in order to install NoScript 5.x, since Mozilla doesn't support signatures for legacy add-ons anymore. If you're using a non ESR Firefox, you may also need this hack.
xpinstall.signatures.required   false setzen/SET

4..Google recaptcha verified fix (2018.08.24) for all browser design for XP: New Moon SEE 27.8.0a1+ XP, New Moon 27.9.1a1 + XP, Mypal 27.9.4 + XP, K-Meleon 76.0 (20180818) + XP
- Test: https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo https://patrickhlauke.github.io/recaptcha
- about:config dom.messageChannel.enabled true

5. .evtl. language addon. de  SETTING YOUR LANGUAGE-hzere german de/deutschland . THERE MUST BE A LINK TO LANGUAGEPACKS where abbreviation are shown.
und
general.useragent.locale   de setzen/SET

6.a)
media.av1.enabled   true
b)
media.mediasource.webm.enabled?  true  ONLY CHANGE(from false) AFTER A RESET

7.Just set FFmpeg up in CYS Options once(installieren dann path), then copy/move the FFmpeg executable into the profile folder of your Firefox portable installation. If the FFmpeg location is set up, but FFmpeg is not found there, CYS will check the profile folder for the FFmpeg executable and use it if found there.

UPDATE

video  html5
https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/html5-video-tuner/    (alle formate bei SSE unterstützt!/all formats suppported in SSE)
-----------------
https://www.downfk.com/ (onlineFACEBOOKvideodownloader)
https://www.downfk.com/private-downloader.php chrome addon

https://www.onlinevideoconverter.com/youtube-converter (on some forum login enables download)

8.
Q: VP9 Support? (for PM27)
 a) VP9 works if async MSE option is unchecked
Extras/Tools, Einstellungen/Options, Inhalt/??   third one from left by me where fonts, language and video are, under video. pls tell us where to find in english version
b)  and "Enable MSE for WebM Video" checked in options.

9.

True for Winxp-SSE: There are still videodownload-problems on certain sites. 

e.g. this instruction video for Winfuture Updatepacks:
https://winfuture.de/UpdatePack
Only download-solution for now: Maxthon 3. it has built-in downloader which is stuck just above the videowindow.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Winfuture Updatepacks(german) also working in english MS OS. Only if newer than WINXP!

BTW: If Win7 and newer the updatepacks(Full monthly or monthly updates) will also work on english versions. there is a workaround if one is starting with Full version(latest)  stopping UAC. its in Sticky/Wichtig in the forum. msconfig and then click on UAC and press start. then down with the regulator.

Bedside the already know browsers  i can run also Opera and Chromium only video-problems seem not solved.

Hi there, first of all I wanted to thank @roytam1 for providing these builds! I wanted to share an auto-update script I wrote to automatically download the latest Weekly Browser Binary from here every Saturday and install it. I'm sure this isn't the best way to be doing this but worked well for me as a scheduled task every Saturday at 11:55 PM :)

The script as it's written assumes the following but can be easily modified for your setup:

  • 7-Zip is installed
  • Your browser is located at C:\Program Files\palemoon
  • GNU Wget 1.19.4 binary is located at C:\Program Files\palemoon_updater
  • Script must be run on Saturday after the weekly binaries have been posted

Essentially the script just downloads the latest NM28XP build and extracts it. Good enough for me.

::Set variables
cd /d "%PROGRAMFILES%\palemoon_updater"
set CURRENTDATE=%date:~10,4%%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%

::End palemoon process
taskkill /im palemoon.exe /f

::Download latest palemoon build
wget -r -l1 -np -nd -A palemoon-28.5.0a1.win32-git-%CURRENTDATE%-*-xpmod.7z https://o.rths.cf/palemoon/

::Extract archive to Program Files
"%PROGRAMFILES%\7-Zip\7z.exe" x -y -o"%PROGRAMFILES%" *.7z

::Delete downloaded archive
DEL /Q *.7z

... The Moonchild Productions devs have just bumped appVersion to 28.5.0a2 in their master branch:

https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/UXP/commit/bccf86a

(bumping platformVersion as well to 4.2.0); I expect @roytam1 to soon follow on this - when that happens, your script will fail and'll have to be amended... ;) Just a heads-up! :P

I think you could go with

11 minutes ago, VistaLover said:

wget -r -l1 -np -nd -A palemoon-28.*.win32-git-%CURRENTDATE%-*-xpmod.7z https://o.rths.cf/palemoon/

and you'll be set, at least until NM 29!

Note: I'd guess that, when the day comes, it won't be possible to make an XP-compatible version of PM 29. But I'm willing to bet that @roytam1 will continue post-EOL updates of NM 28, just as he does now for NM 27. So 28.* will probably work for a long time ;)

OS: Windows Vista SP2 32-bit
Browser: Serpent v52.9.0 (2019-04-19) (32-bit)
buildID=20190419233752
Original browser package: "basilisk52-g4.1.win32-git-20190420-51722cd4f-xpmod.7z"
Userstyle manager extension installed: Stylem 2.2.4

Sadly, it well appears that installing userstyles directly from the userstyles.org repository is currently broken (again :angry:) :

seHXEIm.jpg

Clicking the "Install Style" button gets the tab to become unresponsive/hang, with no prompt appearing to install the style... :realmad:

Is it

1. The site's fault?
2. The browser's fault?
3. The extension's fault?

In any case, I had to use the workaround posted in this thread some months ago... :yes:

about:addons => "User Styles" tab => "Install style from URL" button (second on top-left) =>

Input the following URL: https://userstyles.org/styles/144028/google-clean-dark.css

... It was detailed in the official Pale Moon forums that UXP (off of Mozilla ESR 52.6.0) is the final Mozilla code fork-point for Moonchild Productions' applications, as they concluded that any more up-to-date Mozilla code is, in fact, incompatible with XUL apps and their own vision of how apps should be:

Quote

Make no mistake, this is it. There can never be another vNext type of forking situation. There isn't enough of the Mozilla technology left in the now fully firefox codebase. It isn't even a platform codebase for many apllications anymore.

 To this day, they claim they'll stay clear of the Quantum platform (which includes Rust, Servo and other XP+Vista incompatible code/libs), so my gut feeling is if/when official Pale Moon 29.x.x is released, it'll be built on a UXP evolutionary off-spring (thus, still being susceptible to the XP+Vista restoration "treatment" :D); of course, time will only tell :P

Yes, that is likely.

That part, I'm not so sure about. OTOH, it's certainly possible. We'll just have to hope for the best.

It'll depend on what MCP intends to do with PM 29, and what code libraries they use. For example, they could go down a path similar to Waterfox, which preserves UXP, yet cannot be back-ported to XP (uses Rust, IIRC....)

As for Waterfox, it is not based on UXP, and as for the new Alpha release of Waterfox v68, Photon, WebExtensions and Bootstrapped Add-Ons will be embraced.

WTF is "Photon?"

These physics-inspired trademarks - Quantum, Photon, etc. - are really getting out of hand. Next thing you know, someone will have a "Higgs Boson" browser :buehehe:
