<em:minVersion>1.0.0a1</em:minVersion>

This is why the extensions became incompatible; 0.9.0a1 < 1.0.0a1

Simply change to: 

<em:minVersion>0.9.0a1</em:minVersion>

Responsible upstream commit:

[Navigator] Version change
https://github.com/binaryoutcast/binoc-central/commit/fdded3b

Once again, the "Tobin" individual revolutionises app development by releasing updated code with a lowered app version number (for me at least, this is a first! :angry:) ;) .

That 'MAT' person strikes AGAIN !!! :o ... :P
It is good that 'Mathwiz' did those 'HELP MENU' PULLS to 'Re-Aim' the related URLs for RT's Browsers.

With RT BNAV Browser, latest version = 2019.09.20 (see above).
ALL of the EXTENSIONS and THEMES got DISABLED

... The culprit upstream change I linked to previously was first present inside the Aug 31st 2019 compiled builds (package bnavigator.win32-20190831-4c42623-uxp-11965adc1-xpmod.7z), as also indicated by its posted changelog:

Maybe this situation has to do with '1.0.0a1' vs '0.9.0a1' ???

Since 2 weeks I didn't walk through this topic and now i can't find new build for Firefox 45ESR SSE.

Is F45 branch deliberately interrupted for severe reasons?

If you think Windows 10 was cursed (and worried about Windows 11 too?), wait for Windows 13!

:buehehe:

Maybe M$ will do like some old hotel buildings and just skip from Windows 12 to 14. Or they could just go "back to the future" and start using the year of release as the version number, as I suggested for Firefox.

:rolleyes: Ain't it the truth?

It's the new Tobin paradigm.

Relax; this isn't unusual at all. @roytam1 just happened to release FF45 updates three weeks in a row (8/24, 8/31, and 9/7) but one or two releases of FF45 per month has been more typical.

Thanks for the reassurance!

I was a little doubtful about F45 behaviour in bookmarking as i cannot bookmark anything (see the following figure)

After clicking OK the pages are not bookmarked: i don't know if this failure is related to the UOC Patch.

I use the UOC Patch myself and I can bookmark sites just fine. Are you using DecentralEyes? Older versions interfere with the behaviour of the browser.

I have tried the UOC Patch on my Pentium M laptop (Asus A6000) with the latest update of Firefox 45 ESR SSE, clean profile and no extensions, and I'm not having any issue, sites bookmark just fine. Sorry for your issues, but I can safely rule the UOC Patch out as the culprit.

Interesting protection with New Moon.
I like to share this test with you all:

Hi - I do hope you're fine :); however, what you report is nothing to be in awe of and/or exclusive to NM; "mixed content protection" has been implemented since Mozilla Firefox 23:

https://blog.mozilla.org/tanvi/2013/04/10/mixed-content-blocking-enabled-in-firefox-23/

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/mixed-content-blocking-firefox

In Italian:
https://support.mozilla.org/it/kb/blocco-contenuti-non-sicuri

Auguri :hello:

@Vistaboy : Please do what @looking4awayout did (and it's the thing I always recommend when troubleshooting): create a new pristine FxESR 45.x.x profile, devoid of any extensions; safe mode only disables extensions and some gfx related features (e.g. HW acceleration, if applicable), but doesn't negate the existing prefs.js file inside your dirty profile!

You didn't tell us how your existing profile was initially created; often times, profile corruption due to mysterious extension interactions/conflicts, extension upgrades/downgrades and profile migration from different browser versions (from a higher Fx version to a lower one, not to mention between Firefox forks) may be the source of difficult to dissect issues...

BTW, can you still bookmark a URL via other approaches, e.g. the "star" toolbar button?

Best regards :)

To complete @VistaLover's post and as a proof, I will post a screenshot of the bookmarking feature working perfectly with Firefox 45 ESR SSE (latest build) on the RDD. The Netscape thingy and the custom icon are just edits done by me to "retroify" the look of XP further.
