Is there any certificate manager add-on that could be on Serpent? I tried caa:addon/certificate-manager but it seems not work as it claims to replace the built-in certificate GUI.

Correction: After restart it launches OK.

"Upstream" have just removed the years-long ability of official Pale Moon to accept Firefox-targeting "legacy" extensions:

https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProductions/UXP/pulls/1748

UXP master branch
https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProductions/UXP/commit/3aa334d
https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProductions/UXP/commit/3064ad3

Pale Moon master branch
https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProductions/Pale-Moon/commit/86e5b48
https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProductions/Pale-Moon/commit/bb6dab5

These changes haven't made it yet to the respective (UXP+PM) release branches, but I guess it's only a matter of time now... :(

 I think that route, which was already on the horizon for some time now, has been expedited considerably after the spat with (and following divorce from) ex-associate JustOff and his insistence on keeping Fx legacy extensions compatible with PM (via, among other things, CAA and MTT) ...

1. I sincerely hope/wish the above isn't even considered for inclusion by @roytam1, he's currently building NM28 with the
--enable-phoenix-extensions
mozconfig flag and they've axed it now...
2. MyPal follows closely the release branch and build configuration of official, release channel, Pale Moon, I'll be waiting with bated breath to see whether @feodor2 merges this in... :whistle:
3. The code changes also touch platform (UXP) files, I hope Basilisk (and, thus, Serpent 52) aren't being harmfully affected by them, as St52 shares the same GUID with Firefox (and is natively able to load Fx extensions) ...

Yes. I certainly hope the legacy add-on support is never removed from any of the browsers RT1 builds if at all possible.

I'm just plain frustrated to see yet another user of Serpent 52 UNDER WINDOWS XP post and seek help in the official Pale Moon (& Basilisk) forums:

https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=26414

Such actions only undermine further this project in the eyes of "upstream" and often lead to additional "counter" measures from their side... :( By pure luck, the OP was replied to by Moonchild, who used more moderate/civilised language...  ;) I don't want to even fathom the verbal abuse the OP would've been subject to, had he been "welcome" in the official forums by a certain M.A.T.  :( developer...

But in the above case, XP users who don't want to get informed themselves about the software (browser) they're using on that OS is only one part of the problem; OP is still unsure where to seek support for his predicament, trying Roytam1's GitHub repo for a start (only to be discouraged by GitHub's user-agent sniffing and the fact UXP browsers no longer support Chrome/Edge-targeting GitHub without installing a third party extension first... ).

@roytam1, please make the header/banner in your blog's page more verbose; I personally know that comments there are indeed enabled, but that fact isn't at all apparent if you arrive there, much like the OP did (from God knows where...), by simply loading: 

https://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/search/label/serpent

(you'd have to scroll all the way down (END) and then click on the blue "no comments" link in the bottom to reveal the comments input form; a redirection to

https://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/2021/03/weekly-browser-binaries-20210313.html#comment-form

takes place); or you can always include links in that blogspot banner to this thread or to the other forum(s) you provide support for your XP forks...
We, as a community of users of your splendid offerings, just can't afford anymore to further aggravate Moonchild and Co. :( ...

Thanks for reading, best wishes :) !

I'd like to try Zotero add-on for Serpent 52, as this link (https://laptrinhx.com/basilisk-browser-to-run-downthemall-zotero-legacy-addons-once-again-3877096175/ )suggested, it should install fine on Basilisk. But I tried zotero-4.0.29.25.xpi from official site and zotero-3.0.11-fx.xpi from CAA, both failed to run, giving "There was an error starting Zotero". The add-on's option window could be opened, but it seems malfunction, e.g. the "choos..." button does not response. Please take a look.

update: I searched and found the problem has been raised before in this thread (page 14). According to the hint I verified that version 20191026 is the last that support Zotero. 

So in 20191102's changelog:

Quote

Official repo changes since my last build:
- Issue #1257 - Part1: Remove watch class-hook and proxy trap. (c59c9682d)
- Issue #1257 - Part 2: Remove watch/unwatch and JS watchpoint class. (44a077980)
- Issue #1257 - Part 3: Remove/update tests. (24027f0df)
- #1261 - Update status bar component for the removal of Object.(un)watch (ff881bdb6)

My changes since my last build:
- update libaom to rev 1f0a4746aa8bfcce3fe7fbd2092aef8fe247aef4 (without moz.build and aom_ports/aom_once.h) (4f8655fb7)

Which one could be the culprit and be reversed?

... Well, that article dates back from Jan 27th 2019, so it isn't relevant anymore :( ; a lot of things have changed in the platform+application code since then, almost 25 1/2 months ago... Unlike "extensions-frozen-in-time", a browser being actively maintained evolves forward, its goal is the current web, not compatibility at all cost with abandonware... :no:

UXP issue #1257 was an important platform improvement, rightly merged IMHO, that got rid of Firefox-inherited, non-standard, JS feature that broke recent web compatibility :) ; from related UXP issue #1253 :

Quote

(Moonchild writes: )

I looked more into this; we should just remove it. It’s non-standard, none of the other browsers offer it, our devtools don’t use it any longer, and assuming Firebug has also moved on to using alternatives (since the “breaking” comment was from 2013 and a lot has changed since then).
Stuffing it behind a pref is not really possible because it has many JS hooks that will get called if present, and my guess is the sites suffering from this will trip over having the internal JS definitions existing in the first place in content that can’t be redefined (erroring out when trying to define their own watch() or unwatch() functions on objects). Since it’s not a prefable IDL API it can’t be simply disabled, and since it intercepts calls/proxies (by design) it can’t be made into something that way either.

 Asking for removal of UXP issue #1257 related changes isn't the wise thing to do... As I wrote above, an actively maintained browser targeting the web of 2021 (which is, heartbreakingly, only Chrome-centered) must follow close the recent web standards (sadly now dictated by Chrome developers :angry: ), else major webpage breakage takes place and the browser becomes less useful for today's web-surfing needs (just look how deficient UXP browsers are currently due to lack of support for Web Components/Custom Elements/Shadow DOM and related Chrome-only web technologies :( ... ) .

 As the "upstream" devs believe, a constantly evolving modern-era browser shouldn't be held hostage by a few abandoned, old Firefox targeting, legacy extensions... As I recently posted, they have taken extreme measures in their own products to make sure browser development isn't held back due to some users being reluctant to part with their old Fx extensions...

 We have kept compatibility with Fx legacy extensions in our own UXP tree, but what should be the course of action from now on, when some of those legacy add-ons break as NM28 & St52 move along to tackle the web of 2021? Should these browsers be degraded in quality just to restore the functionality of abandonware? One thing's for sure, "old addon" breakage will definitely happen!

Extensions supplement the browser, not the other way round... The removal of the "watch/unwatch()" functions did also break other extensions, like IHG (ImageHost-Grabber) and even JustOff's L4E (that I use on NM28); the latter was fixed by its author in v1.0.6 (Nov 2019), and that is the thing to do (i.e. fix the extension, not unfix the browser) !

If @roytam1 (am afraid this forum is short of JS/XUL developers :( ) is kind enough to take a look into zotero-4.0.29.25.xpi and is further able to patch it successfully (I remember reading back in the day that a watch/unwatch polyfill could be used in lieu of the removed functions), then you should be able to use that extension with current St52 (and you should thank Roy along the way...) ; if not, move on... :P

Kind regards.

yes it was written by someone else: https://gist.github.com/adriengibrat/b0ee333dc1b058a22b66

 

EDIT: extension seems to be working after prepending Object.prototype.watch.js from above in chrome\content\zotero\xpcom\locateManager.js

@VistaLover: Thanks for letting me get a glimpse of the development trade-offs. Compatibility usually has a price.

@roytam1 : You are a great savior! I am about to seek other approaches, when unexpectedly seeing your solution! Yes the modified xpi works under Serpent52 20210312. Now I could clean my pdf hives and make my readings more organized :)

:thumbup :wub: ; though I can't code (but at the same time I feel I have pointed you to the right direction ;) ) and am not a user of said extension, I must publicly express my personal admiration+respect towards you, for taking personal time to cater to one of your users that does use that add-on! Your dedication speaks volumes! :worship:
