many threads about citi.com on the PM board with no solution as of yet.
maybe someone can look at this with the provided info.

this is the expected error when logon with bogus credentials.

"working" screenshot below on older browsers.

this is the error with newer versions of New Moon and Pale Moon.

Roytam, this is the original post.

It has the link, the working, and the non-working PM version info.

check if network.http.upgrade-insecure-requests is equal to true or not in about:config

if network.http.upgrade-insecure-requests = true, if should act like before.

What is the process for installing h.264 video decoder in recent Palemoon (28.9) or Borealis Navigator? The first post provides DLLs for older PM27/F45, which apparently have no effect when copied into the installaton of the new browser. Replacing mozavcodec.dll has no effect either. It doesn't even complain about wrong version. Nothing.

Awesome!  This works for PM28.

But it does not work for PM27 or ArcticFox :no:

Thank you for your releases. Videos and plain sound files seem to work out of the box after I reinstalled the browsers again. I don't really watch news portals myself and tried a few test sites that dind't seem to load at first. I love how Borealis exposes so many options in the GUI.

All the virus and mask talks seem way WAY "off-topic" to me.

A few questions, as I tried this out and it doesn't work very well unfortunately:

  1. At some point during installation, it said something like "InterLink is the browser and MailNews is the mail client", but I think you meant Borealis or whatever.
  2. The installer itself does download the programs. However, I can't figure it out. It downloaded both of the programs (New Moon x64 and MailNews) into the proper Programs Files directories, which is good. But...
  3. IT created desktop shortcuts for both programs, but it put them on the desktop of the CURRENT USER - rather than in the "Public Desktop" folder. I logged into an administrator account to run the installer and when I logged back in to a standard account, no shortcuts. But that's not a big deal, I can create the shortcuts manually. "New Moon x64" is a good name, but I prefer "MailNews" to "Interlink" (and it opens and shows "MailNews" in the title bar anyways) so I would rename it anyways.
  4. However, from a standard account, I cannot actually run either program! When I try accessing the respective folder in Program Files, it says that I require administrator privileges to accomplish this!

I know these programs don't require admin rights, so why does the installer lock these browsers down to administrators only? That kind of defeats the whole point.

I'd prefer a simpler version, if possible, that just downloaded the latest of the selected programs and put them in the program files directories, and didn't restrict the directory permissions or create desktop shortcuts. Is this possible?

Otherwise, could the batch file be open-sourced so I could make the modifications myself?

I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate.

Thanks!

UPDATE: I can extract the exe using 7z and edit the batch files. So I can easily take care of the shortcut thing.

I don't see anything in the script that is obviously causing permission errors but I'll look into it.

Thanks for the code base! It looks like this can be run at any time to update the browsers/programs, too, without affecting user data?

I can only speak about my SSE-experiences with the installer. When you tried to use the installer without admin-privilegues you have two problems: 1. browser will not start-no access. 2. you must totally remove the browser-folders(those you wrongly installed) before restarting with admin-previlegues. reinstallation in admin-account will not help. will never do. installer must run in standard-account with admin-previlegues.  maybe right-clicking and "execute as" with the right PW would do. didnt yet test maybe someone can do.
