My browser builds (part 2)

@TechnoRelicyes : yes , my post count is low but have been using New Moon as my browser for some time now. ( always the latest version )

have read the thread on the PM board and then some ...

just started testing older versions on xp out of curiosity to find where something in the browser changed.

the logon screen displays correct in the latest version , only after logging in with bogus credentials the error appears.

maybe the page is at fault as suggested on the PM board or a change with the November 10 , 2018 build.

the posted links are old versions of New Moon , not the Pale Moon browser.

whatever , as i said , just curious.

(image removed)

@roytam : thanks for having a look.

your work on this browser is amazing.

if you or anyone can not confirm my above findings i will leave it at that.

regards.

I must be missing something. Wouldn't you expect an error if you try to log into a banking site with bogus credentials?

Or are you saying the error appears whether the credentials are valid or not? If so, try this site: https://www.whatismybrowser.com/detect/what-is-my-user-agent. Try it with both the browser that works and the browser that doesn't, and post the results here.

If the results are different, try a site-specific user-agent override; in the browser that doesn't work, set general.useragent.override.citi.com to the value returned by the browser that works. Then try logging on to citi.com and see if that fixes it.

Not true.

 

If you have a browser NEWER than Nov. 2018, you get the error that has been screen-cap'd above whether you put a real account username/password or a bogus account username/password.

 

If you have a browser OLDER than Nov. 2018, you get a DIFFERENT error !!!

 

So you do NOT need a Citi account to test this - you get the screen-cap'd error on NEWER browser but NOT on OLDER browsers.

 

User Agent settings do NOT alter outcome.

With respect to Roytam's test win32 build of iceape-uxp suite (based on sea monkey):

I find the browser, email-client, HTML editor and the address book all works OK except for a single flaw (IMHO).

The browser will play Youtube videos, the mail client recognize Yahoo and Gmail IMAP accounts and the address book import contacts from other applications.The (Kompozer) HTML editor is handy if maintaining a basic home-page.

The only drawback: unfortunately I have not found a way to install extensions, e.g. legacy uBlock origin

You need to add the Iceape-UXP specific application id inside the extension's install.rdf file:

        <!-- Iceape-UXP -->
        <em:targetApplication>
            <Description>
                <em:id>{9184b6fe-4a5c-484d-8b4b-efbfccbfb514}</em:id>
                <em:minVersion>27.0</em:minVersion>
                <em:maxVersion>52.*</em:maxVersion>
            </Description>
        </em:targetApplication>

Hyperbola provide an Iceape-UXP compatible fork of uB0-legacy, which they call uBlock Origin-Libre; unfortunately, it's only officially installed via their Package Manager; you can have a look at their (limited) set of extensions below:

https://wiki.hyperbola.info/doku.php?id=en:project:iceweasel-uxp_addons

As a workaround to the missing Package Manager, you can navigate to

https://www.hyperbola.info/packages/community/any/iceweasel-uxp-ublock-origin-legacy/

and download the package via the "Download From Mirror" link; that will get you file

iceweasel-uxp-ublock-origin-legacy-1.16.4.16-1-any.pkg.tar.xz

Extract repeatedly with 7-zip and inside the

".\usr\lib\iceweasel-uxp\browser\extensions\"

directory you'll find the needed .XPI file; install that manually on the iceape-uxp suite via drag-n-drop...

:P

Huh? What's not true? I'm not missing anything? You wouldn't expect an error if you try to log into a banking site with bogus credentials? Are we even speaking the same language here?

You can do that if you wish, but to me, testing someone's browser issues by trying to log into a banking site with bogus credentials, probably repeatedly in order to test various possible workarounds, sounds like a pretty terrible idea.

Most of us aren't particularly interested in prompting an uncomfortable visit from the authorities, so asking for more information and letting the OP test possible workarounds with their real Citi.com account seemed to be the more prudent approach.

I'm sorry my caution seems to have offended you, but the OP has let me know they're content to let the issue drop, so I won't pursue it any further.

@ Vista over – thank you. The iceweasel-uxp-ublock-origin-legacy extension install without problems on the test win32 build of iceape-uxp.

Using your advice i could modify and install the (Pale Moon/New Moon) Password Backup Tool extension on iceape-uxp and in this way import  passwords exported as .csv from New Moon.

password-backup-tool@iceweasel.xpi

Twitter has really got it out for Firefox, no matter the version. Now even mobile gives a stripped down version with no video options, only text/pictures when using any firefox version string.

So for UXP I set regular twitter to IE11 and because of the distorted audio issue in XP installed a mobile search engine to easily go to that page using a Chrome string to watch videos. A bit of an annoyance but at least it can be done.

@roytam1 I managed to download files using mypal. Installed NM and tried links to see what happens. Everything is fine now. I reckon something was wrong with previous versions of Basilisk and NM.

Thank you kindly

Is this Paranoia or Conspiracy Theory?

I wasn't asking anybody to visit Citi's web site, for the record.

As I've stated over-and-over, I run version 28.2.2 (or thereabouts) from September 2018.

Because IT works for me and "newer" versions do NOT.

I 'all but' place people on "ignore" that chastise me for using a browser "from 2018" and wag their 'security hype' finger my way.

I'm HAPPY with my September 2018 version.  :cheerleader:
