My browser builds (part 2)

Recommended Posts

Where is the trigger for email-subscription of this part2-thread. since part 1(til page 200) is closed i  dont get email-messages anymore.
SSE-installation
btw: I am now using portable loader-in the same directory like updates. each in its own. Because installer not working. we discussed it seems my pcs failure.
When time is ripe I will generate an SSE-sticky here. Have videodownload-workaround not implemented at the moment and  there are still palemoon 27-crashes. Maybe due to videodriver-problem-cannot solve at the moment or all trials didnt help. new-same type videocard didnt help.
Update: Have found it under Notifications but its looking completely different than yours in PM27-SSE. Where yours is on upper right side its showing Follow and No of people following and showing them after clicked.

@VistaLover
thanks for you very detail long support post, you mostly right.
I test pushbullet-316-an+fx.xpi its work fine in 38esr firefox, i download it from first post, unfortunately its doesnt normally work in NM 27 like you say (and like i say to =) ), but in my opinion its even good, because i can use web Push when i need it, and its dont take system resource of my poor Pentium III )

and rmottola upstream pushed lots of commits of front-end side, so a merge commit issued and new test build is uploaded: http://o.rths.ml/gpc/files1.rt/arcticfox-27.9.18.win32-20191030.7z

as a trial of auto-signing in my packaging script, an ".asc" GPG detached signature is provided now. You may append ".asc" to 7z URLs from now on to retrieve signature of corresponding archive.

I have tried Arctic Fox on the RDD, but unfortunately I cannot get it to work, giving me XPCOM errors whenever I try to start it.

On which browser directory shall I try it? New Moon 27? Firefox 45 ESR SSE? Or is it not for SSE only machines?

Arctic Fox is forked from PM 27, but I don't think @roytam1's build is SSE-only.

Perhaps he can give us an SSE-only build of it; IDK

normal build is not suitable for SSE-only machines.

and AF builds are for me to test their front-end changes and I don't have a plan to switch my codebase to it right now.

My sorrow now is a problem with additions to modify palemoon and firafox.
At http://legacycollector.org/firefox-addons/, he clearly states that Note: this archive will be shut down in December 2019.
Anyone know something about this problem?

It's been archived at the Wayback Machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20191013130454/http://legacycollector.org/firefox-addons/

Also, review this post from the old thread:

Oddly, legacycollector.org's alphabetical list contains "AdBlocker for GMail," but not "Ad-Blocker for GMail" (the link you gave above). They appear to be two different add-ons that have very similar names.

If an add-on isn't linked to in the alphabetical list of add-ons, the Wayback Machine's web crawler won't find it. You'll need to add those to the Wayback Machine manually, by clicking "Save this url in the Wayback Machine." (I added that one and it now works.)

That "ad-blocker" is actually there too, in the list just some lines above. Frankly that had me quite confused too!
And archived here:
http://web.archive.org/web/201910/https://legacycollector.org/firefox-addons/364867/index.html

But thanks for letting us know that horrible news :-(
It's an absolute desaster for users of older browsers or forks. Everything that good people created gets destroyed fully intentionally since many years, everywhere, without any need :-(
How long until those addons will vanish from waybackmachine too? Or perhaps the waybackmachine will get destroyed? How long until justoff with his CAA-archive will have to give up too? Whoever created legacycollector as a service for humanity was FORCED to stop!!

legacycollector.org said:


Since starting this, end 2018, in response to Mozilla removing all legacy extensions from its add-ons site, with plans to expand to include more, similar "legacy" content, a few things have changed needing me to re-evaluate both the need for this site and my desire to run it.
Most importantly I've received several threats to my person for running legacycollector.org - not the kind of thing I signed up for.
But hey, Internet, if that is how you want to play ball, I'm out.


But that's how things are going in this downhill era.

So currently only CAA addon is left, but I can't even read that on this computer, it only runs on more modern browsers :-(
And the Seamonkey addons are nice, but only a tiny few of all Firefox addons.
Have also read that Seamonkey is having growing problems too with Mozilla cutting all engine bridges that forks could use in the past. And hardly any developers remaining either, so assume it's only a matter of time until Mozilla will kill their addons too. Edited by siria

Wow - that's insane (not to mention illegal - I hope the legacycollector.org Webmaster reported these threats to the authorities)! Why would anyone threaten another person for merely running a freeware web site? Some folks really need to get a life, I guess.

Archive.org has considerably more resources, however. So I expect them to continue for the foreseeable future.

Moonchild Productions is reasonably well resourced too, and as long as they're around, there will be a need for non-WE browser add-ons. I wish they would scoop up legacycollector.org while it's still around; it could really expand their addons.basilisk-browser.org site.

I just noticed that @roytam1 has started adding GPG signatures of his builds (in .asc format) to his server. Thanks!

But naturally, it threw my poor old browser downloader batch file for yet another loop, as it started trying to download the .7z.asc file instead of the .7z itself. (Who would've thought that .7z could appear anywhere but at the end of a file name?)

So once again, here's the latest update to my batch file. I've added signature verification if the user has gpg.exe in the default directory (%ProgramFiles%\GNU\GnuPG\). It will download the .asc file corresponding to the file just downloaded, try to verify the signature, and pause so you can review the results. It's also been enhanced to install the UOC_Patch_52.js into NM 28, Serpent, or BNavigator after downloading any of those browsers.

Edit: I've re-uploaded the entire .7z containing my batch file, zip.exe, two backgrounds for Serpent's "Help / About Serpent" box, several word-marks for that box, and @looking4awayout's latest UOC Patch. It's now on @i430VX's server at http://i430vx.net/files/mathwiz/Browser Installer.7z.

There have been numerous updates to the UOC Patch since my last upload, and while they haven't slowed down much, my old .7z was overdue for an update. Also, my "version 52" patch has diverged (very slightly) from the original, in order to retain compatibility with Adobe Flash and certain Serpent extensions (notably SaveFrom.Net Helper and Multi-Account Containers), at a slight performance penalty.

Update: I've added options to filter out the prefs known to cause compatibility issues when installing the UOC Patch for version 52+ browsers. If you don't use Flash (or the above Serpent extensions) choose N and my batch file will install the UOC Patch with no changes, for best performance. If you do, choose Y for the thing(s) you use and the incompatible prefs will be removed during installation. Note: this change only affects version 52+ (UXP/Moebius) browsers.

Update 2: Worked around minor bug: Batch file would end after installing MailNews instead of asking to install another browser.

Update 3: For @msfntor: added option to download and install LAV filters for pre-UXP browsers. The batch file will automatically download the correct LAV build for the architecture you choose (though if you have an SSE2 processor, the Adobe Primetime CDM is probably a better choice than the LAV filters for FF 45).

Update 4 is here! The batch file now lets you choose either FF 45 SSE or new FF 45 noSSE browser.

The extension's XPI file is hosted on GitHub which, as you might know already, is now owned by Microsoft; it is a relatively big file (for an extension that is :P ), so it's probably consuming a big chunk of GH's bandwidth with its downloads - a "valid" pretence for them to request its removal from a free repository - IOW, I don't trust M$ one bit :angry: ; fortunately, the extension is just a database, the legacy addons themselves are being hosted on Waterfox servers...

Aren't you able to even run the SSE-only compile of New Moon 27? Not even the ia32 (no-SSE) compile? Because CAA installs and loads fine here in New Moon 27 (the standard, SSE2+, build)...

As for the legacycollector.org site/service, the alphabetical index resides here ; please give the URL proper time to load fully (it's all on one scrollable page; I guess this is a poor web design choice on the part of the maintainer :whistle:). The database for this site is humangous, circa 15 GiB, so not quite sure at what extent it could be saved in the Internet Archive... Of course, individual legacy extension users like you and me have one month (?) to save (both locally and on the IA) those addons they're interested in... 

The admin of the site has also generated a compressed archive of the whole site (in .tar.xz format, circa 8.23 GiB) and made it available over the Bit Torrent network (but not for long), for people wishing to pick up the baton... :cool:
