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

@roytam1 It might be worth updating the thread title to something like "Goanna-based browsers by roytam1 retaining XP support", or something along those lines, since doesn't this thread also refer to KM-Goanna and Basilisk too? :P

Nice work, though! I use KM-Goanna personally since I prefer its UI over Mozilla's XUL interface, KM definitely has more of a XP-era program vibe in terms of design and layout (back when no one was forced to target social-media obsessed teenagers).

that's inaccurate since esr45 branch is not Goanna-based.

Instead of this big melting pot it would be SO much handier to have single topics for single browsers, as others have already mentioned too 8-)

Have also just posted something over at the K-Meleon forum, regarding KG74 crashes on 98SE and KernelEx (http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?19,146040,page=4), just because there is a dedicated KG74 topic. While here on MSFN it's shattered a bit everywhere, across several topics containing a multitude of different browsers, completely confusing. Although would have preferred here, far more dev experts around here. Edited by siria

I would LEAVE this particular 'New Moon' current named 'THREAD HERE' to continue to exist.
Because @Mathwiz did FIX some of the RT Browser 'HELP' URLs to aim HERE (THIS THREAD).
And this was done, as a manner of attempting to remedy criticism from a certain 'MAT' person.
Which, now that it is done, I think that the situation is MUCH IMPROVED. I would argue
that RT can say to 'MAT' that what is REASONABLE to address the 'MAT' concerns,
has been DONE now..

As to IF that RT wants to 'monitor' ADDITIONAL MULTIPLE THREADS created
on a specific 'Unique RT Browser Defined Basis' -- SEEMS like that should be
as RT PREFERS it to be.

This 'THREAD HERE' is a bit messy, no question. But it does offer solutions and feedback
for the various RT Browsers. But okay, NOT so easy to always LOCATE the exact MESSAGE
that pertains to the specific RT Browser that you have a 'problem concern' with it.

Instead of trying to perform major surgery on this thread, perhaps we could have a subforum dedicated to Mozilla Firefox and other browsers derived from it. This thread, and the link to it, would then remain the same as now, so the links in NM 28 and Serpent 52 wouldn't be broken; it would just be the first pinned topic in the new subforum.

Folks could then create other threads in that subforum to discuss issues with "official" FF, Seamonkey, @roytam1's builds, etc., thus reducing the "clutter" in this thread going forward. (Sometimes folks do that now, but the thread winds up in the larger XP forum, so it can quickly get lost among all the other XP topics being discussed.)

It's always a dilemma trying to reorganise something after such a long time, already or almost too late, instead of considering future problems right from the beginning. Have no easy solution either, just wanna mention two little points:

If I see it right, the single topics have no subforum key in their URL?
That would mean externally stored links keep working, regardless if topics are later moved around to other subforums (RT browsers? Mozilla browsers? Whatever? Back and forth across forum?) The most important thing is just to have separate topics at all. And not breaking stored links is especially important for those Help-Support links of course.

Not sure if you discovered already one can just open the forum with this very handy link, named "All Activity", and it shows all recent posts?
https://msfn.org/board/discover/
RT is already posting in a variety of different topics across the forums, that looks like he's simply watching "all" too, not just "monitoring single topics" (which would be a pain of course)
