Why authors of slow browsers do not use instant icedragon solutions? @roytam1

different technologies. if you can make rust creating XP compatible binaries, and if you can make firefox > 53 XP compatible, please tell me how to do that.

comodo icedragon fork on FF 65 ...

OK, so that's Quantum-based with the "Photon" interface, right? My first thought was, "that couldn't run on XP;" but:

Will Comodo IceDragon run on my computer?

Comodo IceDragon will run on 32/64 bit Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

On Windows 7, it certainly looks like Photon (and a bit too much like M$ Edge). I can't test it on XP until Monday; in the meantime, can anyone confirm? https://www.comodo.com/home/browsers-toolbars/icedragon-browser.php

(Warning: a dialog box will pop up offering to install "Comodo cloud Antivirus" and change your home page and default search engine to Yahoo on all supported browsers. You must click the teeny "Decline" button if you don't want to do that. Seems a bit PUPpy to me....)

A Quantum browser would have drawbacks; the chief ones being no legacy extensions and no NPAPI plug-ins (except Flash). Still, a Quantum browser on XP would be quite a feat.

I've tried installing it on Vista, and while it indeed installed, after launching, Windows complained that it's not a valid Win32 application:

I guess the same will happen under XP.

Try blackwingcat's PEMaker and change the PE subsystem from (presumably) 6.1 to 5.0 or 6.0.

No issues thus far with both New Moon 27 and 28 and this forum. The only thing is dom.storage.enabled needs to set to true to post here.

I think I'm too dumb to use it, tried changing the SubSysVersion to 6.0 using the change button and also putting it in the main window of pemaker, even tried running it as admin, but always it keeps switching back to 6.1 for whatever reason.

Did you try clicking "save" in the upper-right corner? I had never had such an issue on either NT 5.x or 6.x.

I did, but after loading it in pemaker again, subsysversion remains at 6.1. I guess someone else has to try it then...

Try using a PE editor to change the subsystem version, PPEE for instance.

Link doesn't work.

It's because of the recent change in the hostname; "o.rths.cf" => "o.rths.ml" :)

Probably, quite a few know of this (including you), but does no harm to post of it.

This Bookmark House (B.H) is simple and (via Ads & Donors) free to use it.
 

Thanks for the info, yet from the snapshot image I see this is another "cloud" bookmark service, not to be invoked from the app menu.

Hello, you can eliminate calls to "EncodePointer", "DecodePointer" and "GetLogicalProcessorInformation" since Windows XP RTM / SP1 does not have these dependencies in kernel32, but Windows XP SP2 does. At least do it with New Moon 27 since Windows XP SP1 in Pentium II works better than SP2 / SP3.

And another question how do I make YouTube play videos on New Moon 27?

NM27 requires SP3 functions, you may have a look on this to see if there is workaround for that or not: http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?19,143253,143901#msg-143901
