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.

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

It's the new Tobin paradigm.

Is F45 branch deliberately interrupted for severe reasons?

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.

No, i don't use it. I've also disable extensions but nothing changed.

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.

To have an imgur photo upload display inline inside a forum post, please choose under the Get share links option the BBCode (Forums) entry, of the format: 

[img=https://i.imgur.com/[7-digit-code].jpg]

... and try to avoid their new beta photo uploader:

https://imgur.com/upload?beta

which is now being offered as the default :angry: ; the beta uploader uses much more resources here (CPU+RAM) compared to the old one:

https://imgur.com/upload

so the latter should be bookmarked and preferred in older hardware+browsers! ;)
Of course, the old one will cease to exist sometime in the near future, till then though, it's the obvious choice for me...

Or as an alternative just change the value of the "frontpagebetav2" cookie to 0 (if this won't work, do the same for "frontpagebeta" cookie, you might want to create it if it doesn't exist). This should force the old look (at least for now).

Is there a russian language pack for New Moon 27.9.6 x64?

Have you tried the ru.xpi "27.9.4_RC2" localization for 27.9.6 first?

Language packs are architecture independent, meaning the same one would apply to both x86 & x64 compiles of the same app version...

Unfortunately, I quit using NM27/Tycho months ago, since it no longer supports GitHub :(; so I'm not following closely that fork's development; you might try the official Tycho language pack at

http://archive.palemoon.org/palemoon/langpacks/27.x/ru.xpi

which should be the same as the RC2 linked to by @IntMD; however, I believe that relatively recent commits have added new strings that are missing in the old (and, of course, no longer maintained) official pack; so the official ru pack might well be a trial-and-error case; it may work partially, or prohibit the GUI from even launching at all... If that's the case, then obviously a Russian speaking member of this community could add and localise the new strings... :P

The newly released SeaMonkey 2.49.5 Browser supports WinXP (32bit Only) and Language Packs.
http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/#langpacks
And (MSFN User) 'VistaLover' created a FIX for INSTAGRAM Video for it under WinXP too.
I like to support RT's Browsers though. I gladly use the RT BNAV Browser, but it has NO LANGUAGE PACKS
available for it (so English Only). Sadly, LANGUAGE PACKS is becoming an 'issue' increasingly.

'VistaLover' FIX for SM 2.49.5 Browser -- For INSTAGRAM Video under WinXP OS (32bit Only).
