Are you using NM 27 or NM 28? The hack above will only work on NM 28.

fp.isGecko45 won't be true for NM 27 or for Arctic Fox, which is based on NM 27.

Hello everybody!

Is there a way to use a Socks5 proxy with password on New Moon or Arctic Fox via extensions only (with no additional software such as Proxyfier)?

 

On Roytam1's Serpent and in MyPal I use the hack for the FoxyProxy extension from Palemoon forum (https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?t=20886) and it works perfectly fine. However, for some reason it refuses to work in New Moon or Arctic Fox.

Do you have any clues why and if there is a way to overcome this?

 

Here's the hack:

because for NM27 and AF, isGecko45 should be equaled to false as they're gecko38-based forks.

Thanks! It was that simple after all. Looks like I just missed the link to NM 28, silly me.

You're right; it is. I guess the list isn't in exact alphabetical order :rolleyes:

I wonder why archive.org's Web crawler didn't pick it up then? There's no robots.txt there AFAICS :unsure:

Oh, well; in any case it's archived for posterity now.

These are long threads and this question may have already been asked but is there anything that can be done with Captcha and Serpent/UXP? It whines that you need a newer browser version. It looks like it's missing a google api since spoofing the user agent doesn't work either.

Absolutely hate those things but at least with the latest versions of firefox it is now possible to hear the challenge instead. It's much easier and quicker.

I think we all hate them. I especially hate Google's since I learned that Google is using reCaptcha challenges to train its AI. If they want me to work for them, I think they should pay me....

Which site / captcha is giving you trouble?

JFYI, Serpent 55 has no problem with Google's reCaptcha demo page at https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo with the user agent overridden to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:60.9) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.9.

Any site that requires reCaptcha that message appears.

Looks like I'll have to re-download moebius just for this purpose then if it's working, as long as it has the play option. For the longest time I kept getting a network error and couldn't use that feature with firefox but lately it's been available.

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.

Good signature from "Roy Tam <roytam@gmail.com>" ! Thank you for the effort.

The challenges are all traffic related object recognition, which clearly is for auto-driving AI training. I don't mind do a couple of them, but it always forcing me to complete more than 3 tasks. Very annoying, especially one site I visit recently added reCaptcha challenges, but recklessly limited submission in 30 seconds, which I could never finish, essentially locked me out.

I think we all hate captchas. I especially hate Google's reCaptcha for the reason I gave above.

Google's reCaptcha is used by many Web sites, but the data is hosted by Google, and your responses are validated by Google. They sneak a few images into their reCaptchas where the "correct" answer is unknown, so they can use the user's responses to train their self-driving car software.

I don't even mind Google developing self-driving car software; I wish them the best of luck in that. I just resent being dragooned into helping them develop it, just to use a Web page.

I don't hate everything about Google; I still use their search engine (albeit via Startpage.com).

The hack above will only work on NM 28.

The FoxyProxy extension checks for

fp.isGecko45 = this.vc.compare(this.appInfo.platformVersion, "45.0a1") >= 0;

because rudimentary authentication (with login credentials) for SOCKSv5 proxy was finally implemented in Firefox Nightly 45.0a1 when Bugzilla #1200802 landed: 

Accept SOCKS credentials in proxyInfo object

The above condition isn't met for UXP apps (NM28/St52) and St55, because they use the Goanna 4.x versioning; but because UXP[Goanna4.x] was forked from Mozilla[Gecko] 52 (> 45.0a1), #1200802 code exists in the UXP tree and thus, by applying the patch

fp.isGecko45 = true;

the requested feature now works (same logic applies to Moebius[Goanna4.0] forked from Mozilla[Gecko] 53 (> 45.0a1) ) ...

NM27 builds on the Tycho platform; Tycho[Goanna3] was forked from Mozilla[Gecko] 38 (< 45.0a1), and so is AF, thus the fix introduced by #1200802 is absent in the Tycho code tree; hence the FP patch doesn't work there...

If @roytam1 was to apply, somehow, the fix from #1200802 to Tycho, then the FoxyProxy "patch" would also work in NM27 - however, the diff introduced by #1200802 involves modifying 20 files, it's unclear (to me) whether it would apply cleanly to Tycho and whether, ultimately, would work... @roytam1, would you care to try and hopefully compile a test build? I'm sure @Mabeso would be more than happy to test... ;)

Best regards :)
