Firefox 45.9.17 Nightly: Cannot find German language file. Installation possible?

This was posted in the past (in the now closed original thread), but the official Mozilla langpack for FxESR 45.9.0 should do:

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/45.9.0esr/win32/xpi/de.xpi

Install, restart browser, in about:config set general.useragent.locale;de, restart once more... ;)

Am I the only one that can't see gifs on Twitter? While I can see their thumbnails, as soon as I click on them, they turn completely black. I've only tried disabling uBO, tried safe mode and a new profile, but none of these helped. For example this one:

I'm running latest NM28 on 32-bit Vista by the way.

I'm running latest NM28 on 32-bit Vista by the way.

Fellow Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit user here :P; on Vista, there seems to be a conflict/incompatibility between the native WMF h264 decoder (not present in XP) and certain gif formats, like the Twitter ones :(; the ffmpeg-based h264 decoder present inside @roytam1 's custom-patched ffvpx library is still capable of rendering those gifs though, but has a lower value (in the preferred order) and is thus not used by default on Vista (while it is on XP, which lacks WMF); so, your issue is Vista specific... :(

To view such Twitter gifs on Vista, temporarily set (in about:config)

media.wmf.enabled to false and reload the twitter page; the gif should play now (because ffvpx takes over...) :cheerleader:

NB: I'd advise against making this a permanent pref change, as the WMF framework is better suited for media playback integration with UXP browsers under Vista (e.g., if your gfx card supports hardware (i.e. GPU) h264 decoding, it can make use of that, while ffvpx always uses software (i.e. CPU) decoding) !

Best regards :)

In Windows 7 decoding works good for me with media.wmf.enabled to true but in Windows XP, where I sometimes go to use older software CPU decoding doesn't cut it on certain sites like Twitter. But I just finally learned a little trick to force lower resolution by adding a mobile tag in the url, for example,

https://twitter.com/FireTheFoxxo/status/1196668801489739777

to this:

https://mobile.twitter.com/FireTheFoxxo/status/1196668801489739777     

Twitter videos are now at least bearable in XP without having to download them. 

Unless I'm missing it it's apparently beyond the capability of the "Twitter team" to provide resolution options on their player the way youtube and others do. 

Edit: you can also force mobile twitter by changing the UA to an older browser like Firefox 3.0 but if you're like me and have the UA set in about:config then adding the mobile tag to watch videos is another option.

Mcinwwl posted about the distorted audio issue:

"It still affects all the videos on VOD.TVP.pl. Polish national TV provider, might be geofenced. It was reported first time over a year ago by @kitaro1, so won't likely change..."

____________________

In about:config, click New/string:

general.useragent.override.vod.tvp.pl

then value:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Goanna/4.0 Firefox/55.0

This works on Serpent55 / Moebius here, with test link "Ceremonia Otwarcia" on vod.tvp.pl:  https://vod.tvp.pl/video/eurowizja,ceremonia-otwarcia,45326534

- no more distorted audio, no geofencing...

As long as the distorted audio can always be fixed with a simple user agent change, I see no reason to retain Adobe Primetime support in Serpent.

(I'll add the above user agent to myuseragents.js.)

Does anyone know of a site with distorted audio that can't be fixed with a different user agent? (If so, that would be a reason to restore Primetime support.)

No, I don't know. My personal problem lived in Twitter distorted videos, now it's fixed by user-agent override, cause I change user-agent in uMatrix, sorry.

To improve quality, resolution of watching Twitter videos (that are, uh... look very bad, poor, with random parasitic noises interferences; search on the web: "Twitter videos randomly slow down to lower framerate, framerate variance" ...) - I've changed these boolean in about:config:

media.hardware-video-decoding.enabled - change to false (user set),

media.hardware-video-decoding.failed - change to true (user set) - if you don't have this name, click New/boolean ...

Too, if you would check your fps, change this boolean:

layers.acceleration.draw-fps - to true (user set).

The fps score shows up in the left-hand corner at the top of the browser Serpent 55 / Moebius. Very cool.

Hmm, with Twitter video I have 10 to 12 fps, with YouTube 20 to 23 fps ...

Twitter video test I've found very funny EsBadBunny:

and another momentoviral video test:

https://twitter.com/momentoviral/status/1197576387990867969

Edit:

Take this above with a grain of salt, after reading the VistaLover post on the next page:

"I would advise against this setting for those combinations of Windows OSes (Vista SP2 and up) and GPUs where hardware video (h264) decoding is actually possible and the default; disabling HVD delegates h264 decoding to the CPU, which may have (depending on the CPU) a significant performance toll (especially on high res videos) ...

Additionally, I'm not quite sure whether the above "media." pref has any actual bearing on XP (where HVD via WMF is not possible) ..."
