Mini bug report: Serpent on Vista with Aero Glass enabled doesn’t seem to like the window bar around the minimise/close buttons for some reason - they appear the same as the default Windows style when maximised the window... no idea if this would be fixed given it’s XP targeted, though.

Hey guys..

I realize its likely already been said here countless times, and I know I also read where there was a setting to make New Moon - Portable (something like pointing the program to specific appdata directories); but darned if I can find it and I've been looking for hours here. I don't care much about using a portable loader rather I prefer have the directories and the program (New Moon) all on a flash drive and have nothing saved on the computer. Again, I recall seeing something, but I could be wrong also. Sorry guys for asking and thank you in advance to anybody that would re post instructions again.

Take care.

I think you just have to tell palemoon.exe (or whatever browser) where the profile folder is when you start it; e.g., put a one-line .bat file (say, portablemoon.bat) in the palemoon directory of your flash drive, which does this:

start "" palemoon.exe -no-remote -profile .\profile

... then you can just double-click portablemoon.bat and it will look for the profile in palemoon\profile directory of your flash drive.

You read about the palemoon on a pendrive. Very good. However, this is not a palemoon from MSFN. This is a modification from github.

https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal/releases
You are downloading a palemoon mypal 28.6.0 modification. Create a new folder on the pendrive and name it as you like.
Run the installer on the disk in the system. In the first installer window, select the portable version. In then select the new installation folder - created on the pendrive.
Install the browser. The installer will extract the portable to the folder. Use.
The browser's folder will contain profile folders - transferred from appdata and from local appdata. All settings and cache will be in the installation folder on the pendrive.
Be happy.

New Moon only comes in a 7z archive, Mypal comes with an installer.

Might also be worth out of curiosity looking over at the SeaMonkey 2.49.5 development because some FF52 Gecko post-EOL patches are there and the x86 versions still support XP/Vista (they are intentionally meant to be supported btw), you could potentially be a really good contributor to SM development in some way or another if ever you wanted to maybe :p

You can enable or disable SSL/TLS ciphers according to your own security preferences. Go to about:config and filter for security.ssl3 and you'll see all available cipher suites for SSL 3.0 through TLS 1.2. Filter for security.tls13 to see the available cipher suites for TLS 1.3. Set to true to enable or false to disable. Changes are stored in your profile so they'll "stick" between browser updates; but you have to do this for every browser profile you use.

A few Web sites may not yet use newer, more secure ciphers; if you visit any of those, you'll need to leave a less secure cipher enabled to access it. If you disable some ciphers, then can't connect to a site, that's probably the reason. Create a new, "clean" profile, restart the browser specifying it, and try again. If it works, check which cipher your browser uses with a particular site by clicking the padlock, then the right arrow, then "More Information." Then restart your browser with the default profile, and re-enable the cipher your browser used with that site. Your communications with that site are probably still reasonably secure, but be aware that they could eventually be decrypted by someone determined enough; perhaps even years later, and act accordingly. Ideally, you should contact the Webmaster and ask them to enable newer, more secure ciphers. (The Web site may choose to leave some older ciphers enabled as well, for compatibility with older browsers. That's fine as long as the newer ones are preferred.)

Offtopic: I still don't particularly understand why HTTPS was so encouraged by Chrome and its derivatives (including of course Firefox since they ran out of ideas) all of a sudden everywhere since the middle of 2015, especially given the big countries will always find a way to decipher whatever's being passed through somehow via ISP co-operation or whatever...

(The UK for example has banned end-to-end encryption on IM and some other platforms, so anything that claims to use it here actually isn't, they have to disable the encryption on the UK users' end so the government and such alliances can read it and not have to say anything about that.)

Understandable if you're trying to protect against say a bank card interception of details by some nolife sitting in a basement intercepting it, but not everywhere should have to be forced to use it or be forced to drop lower. The only place it's needed is when submitting data since ISPs usually end up logging history/etc anyway...

The about:support page is broken for me in UXP, the addon information or the user string no longer shows, is this intentional? Tried and confirmed with a fresh profile so I don't know of any pref setting to fix it if it can be.
