My Browser Builds (Part 2)


Recommended Posts


Forum style probs, more SELFHELP stuff:
No clue what this does (messes?) in younger browsers, but in KM1.6/FF3.5 this
shows the Hover menu on Profile name:
html body.ipsApp li#cUserLink:hover ul#elUserLink_menu{display: inline-block !important;}
html body.ipsApp ul#elUserLink_menu{background-color: yellowgreen !important;}
html body.ipsApp ul#elUserLink_menu li {line-height: 1 !important;}

Personally I get to see hardly ANY css at the moment, so this lets me at least
recognize Quotes again:
html body.ipsApp div.cPost_contentWrap blockquote {
background-color: rgba(240,240,80,0.8) !important;
outline: 2px solid peru;
padding: 0px 8px;
}

Those codes can be restricted to specific websites, but hope that the "body.ipsApp" part is enough restriction to only apply on IPS-Forums - and that means all other IPS-forums too.
Otherwise add this:
@-moz-document url-prefix(https://msfn.org/board/) {
...code above...
}

Apparently, in modern times, the foundation of GUI development is to make sure it is forever changing. Why not make it as a "GUI randomizer" and be done with it? (sarcasm)

You don't want to give them any ideas. :--)

This has to be UI designers on the payroll justifying their jobs since there's no rationale to keep messing with the UI when Mozilla knows how much their remaining user base hates it.

For now we can probably revert most of the nonsensical change with userchrome.css but I'm waiting for that shoe to drop where they do away with that option completely. Even more reason to keep using roytam's basilisk and pale moon.

Quick question..

As it turns out, I just happen to have "WASM" (user_pref("javascript.options.wasm") set to (its default) "True"on New Moon28.10.2a1; however, on Serpent52, I had it set to false. So, I've spent some time researching {webassembly firefox} on duck~duck~go...HAHA... and I see good (security related) reason(s) to have it disabled - though is said, disabling it decreases performance on modern web sites. I don't know why I didn't catch this sooner, but digging around today, I discovered the inconsistency with regard to my browsers. Considering our maintainer has it enabled by default, do you folks recommend leaving enabled?

Thank you..

1. The "primary" and "secondary" colour settings (in "Colour Picker") are no longer stored in cookies:angry:
My personal preference was Marble (not the forum default) for both, and then I would protect these cookies
with a specialised cookie extension, so that every time I logged-in, those custom colour settings of mine
would stick...

Update on this:

Colour Picker custom selections are now stored in HTML5 cookies

The extension used is CookieKeeper 1.9.3.1 :)

3. We no longer have "Theme" choices, my preferred "IPS default" theme has vanished,

On 1/4/2021 at 10:54 PM, asdf2345 said:

and now I'm really curious to see how IPS Default looked, because I never saw the option to switch to it before.

Another IPS board I occasionally browse (but don't belong to as a registered member) is nsane.forums .
That one has also undergone the forum software overhaul last autumn, but the IPS default theme has been kept 
as a custom choice; do note that what's currently available is an updated iteration of past IPS default, but if one enables 
the new version now, one can get a good glimpse of what the pre-update version looked like...

@asdf2345 : Scroll down to the bottom banner, then choose via "Theme":

@siria : I combined your "fixes" into the following Stylem userstyle:

@-moz-document domain("msfn.org") {

  html body.ipsApp li#cUserLink:hover ul#elUserLink_menu {
    display: inline-block !important;
  }

  html body.ipsApp ul#elUserLink_menu {
    background-color: yellowgreen !important;
  }

  html body.ipsApp ul#elUserLink_menu li {
    line-height: 1 !important;
  }
  
  ul.ipsComment_tools ul.ipsHide:hover,

  a.ipsComment_ellipsis:hover + ul.ipsHide {
    display: inline-block !important;
    position: static !important;
  }

}

to be used in Tycho based browsers (NM27, Arctic Fox) ; still, the overall MSFN experience in these browsers is highly problematic :( ... (I don't mean to be disrespectful :no:, but the site owner tested the new layout only in Google Chrome 87/Win10 and, of course, all things work there as "expected"; so, no sympathy is expected/felt for (us here) users of older browsers on older OSes, which, I believe, is a unique trait of MSFN itself as a broader community, i.e. not to look down on users because of their Windows OS/hardware choices... :dubbio:Anyhow, the dice is cast and Rubicon crossed... )

Just a curiosity about FF45+. On an old XP desktop runs a version of Firefox 45.9.19.7307 (also known as firefox-45.9.19-20200104). 

Has this branch development been permanently abandoned? Can't find no mention about it on https://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/

tenfourfox has no development in these months

Thank you roytam1. It's only for knowing that this XP browser option now it's really better to put it aside, in favor of great other alternatives. Personally for this old desktop snail i found Mypal really impressive in terms of speed in front of FF45+: there's only one thing that can't understand why it's broke and that is the language pack (IT in my case) that, despite seems to be upgraded, continues to not work as it is not even installed.

Everything, from the bar to the right-click-mouse options, remain in native EN language

Well.. I found this article interesting re WebAssembly.

https://github.com/stevespringett/disable-webassembly

So.. I'll roll with WASM disabled. I see no (considerable) degradation in performance with it enabled - the risk doesn't seem worth the benefit to me.

I went ahead and grabbed the last two builds form you to keep in my archives in case that project is discontinued.

Thanks roytam1 for your time and hard work.

The latest release of @roytam1 's fork of FxESR 45 has been the one from last November:

http://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/2020/11/weekly-browser-binaries-20201128.html

v4tYOl5.jpg

... so you can at least update your one-year-old installation to the latest one... :)

BUT (sadly, there always seems to be a "but" lately :angry: ), if you, like me, prefer your browser to be localised, then v45.9.29 (buildID=20201008212525), package file name:

firefox-45.9.29-20201010-7391af2bb-win32-sse.7z

is the last one that supports the original FxESR 45.9.0 language packs:
