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

Recommended Posts

... And despite all recent incidents involving Mr. Matt A. Tobin and Moonchild Productions in general, there still exist people who post in the official Pale Moon forums questions related to Feodor2's MyPal and @roytam1's New Moon forks:

https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=22110

These "people" are only doing a disservice to the XP and Vista communities benefiting from the continued existence of these forks and they must be stopped from continuing such an infantile and foolish behaviour; the only unwanted effect they'll cause is more aggravation for the MCP devs, more hostility towards the maintainers of the forks and their users!

Who in his/her right mind would go to the official Pale Moon community (devs+users) forum and query about third-party "unsupported" forks running on OSes that the mere mention of their names would cause those people to throw a hissy fit? Please, anyone here with a PM forum account (I know several exist) contact that @DJboutit individual and try to talk some sense into him/her :realmad: . We can't risk any additional animosity from the upstream devs :(!

This user is obviously a moron, but who cares? I assume Pale Moon is GPL'd, right? If so, they can't do anything about others forking, and redistributing their browser. Regardless of how annoyed they may be.

 

Yeah, nevermind what I just said lol.

I could do it but I won't.
And excuse me Vistalover for this if I do not collect your request.:no:
Users of that forum are very rude, misguided and prejudiced.
They have the donkeys they deserve.:thumbdown

Sorry again.

BNAV Browser (RT)

https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/seamonkey/addon/metal-lion-sea-monkey/versions/
https://addons.thunderbird.net/eN-US/seamonkey/addon/metal-lion-silver-sea-monkey/versions/
These two (above URLs) Metal Lion SM Themes (Original, Silver) can be easily made to install.
Each one has an ACTIVE TAB with a different (brighter) color -- nicely done.

Use 7-ZIP software to unZIP the *.xpi THEME files to a folder, then edit the INSTALL.RDF file.
Then reZIP all files, and name it again as XPI file for installation.
This 'coding' below must be added (nested appropriately) to INSTALL.RDF near file bottom:

*** Note: the 'minVersion' setting (below) got corrected, due to necessity ***

<!-- RT BNAV Borealis Navigator (below) -->
        <em:targetApplication>
            <Description>
                <em:id>{a3210b97-8e8a-4737-9aa0-aa0e607640b9}</em:id>
                <em:minVersion>0.1.0a1</em:minVersion>
                <em:maxVersion>*</em:maxVersion>
            </Description>
        </em:targetApplication>
<!-- RT BNAV Borealis Navigator (above) -->

Just carefully locate (nest) the 'coding' above and SAVE the INSTALL.RDF file.
Thanks to MSFN.org users 'VistaLover' and 'RoyTam1' for help on INSTALL.RDF editing.

I have just tried the newest version of Firefox 45 ESR SSE (45.9.15) on my Pentium III RDD, and compared to the older versions, I noticed that scrolling in webpages appears to be choppier, less smooth than it is for example on New Moon 27 and the older versions of FF45 ESR SSE. To make sure it wasn't an impression of mine, I rolled back to 45.9.14 and the latest stable version, 45.9.11, and I've indeed noticed that the older versions are way smoother when scrolling websites, even with pictures (especially after applying the UOC Patch). I noticed that in 45.9.15, when I scroll a website with pictures that are loading, the scrolling noticeably lags, while in the older versions it scrolls almost seamlessly when pictures are loading, at least with the UOC Patch enabled. I hope this choppy scrolling issue can be addressed and eventually fixed, as I've currently rolled back to 45.9.11, which behaves as fine as 45.9.14 on my machine. A big thumbs up to @roytam1 for his great work, and I hope my report can be useful. :)

I'm going to try Palemoon but most I could install is 24.6

when I visit any sites alot complain browser is out of date or If i get in get put on the mobile version of the site

is there anyway I could remedy this

Can I import alot of the settings from Firefox

i noticed there is alot in the about config not in PM there is in FF, can I put these in ?

How do I get the Primetime to appear in PM like FF I have put in same settings in PM as in FF it doesnt appear

Noticed there is either No comment box or can not comment on Facebook status's

I managed to update PM to 26.9, but FB Twitter etc still doesnt allow me to comment

where are the userstrings stored, its not in the prefs file

I did try following guide on 1st post but still only get 2 blue ticks on html5/youtube

Just tried that. While it does slightly improve the smoothness, it's not as smooth as 45.9.11 is. I've used the same framerate settings I have in the older version but no dice. If it wasn't for this little issue, the browser runs wonderfully on my Tualatin machine, and pages take less time to load. If that issue can be fixed it would be really amazing.

then try change it to 60 to see if it is better or not (there is some code changed to treat -1 as 30)

EDIT: setting the framerate to 60 cured the issue. Thank you! :D

EDIT 2: I just stumbled upon another bug. When I open the "Find in This Page" feature, the browser crashes giving me a System Exception error. If necessary, I can post a screenshot.
