... I think you did not view the screenshots posted by @RainyShadow ; the issue isn't that the about:support internal page doesn't load; it does, but it isn't populated with all the expected info/details one should find there:

Reproduced on a new/clean NM27 profile, on Vista SP2 32-bit  :(

I just wanted to report, that somewhere in the last 48 hours, Reddit appears to have partially broken on all XP browsers, including New Moon, MayPal and Chromium ports. It seems several smaller functions don't work anymore, but the most prominent thing is that new posts don't get dynamically shown when scrolling down anymore. The amount of posts the user can see seems to depend on the viewport, or rather on the vertical resolution. Let me show you a screenshot:

reddit-issue.thumb.png.2c068ba96417f8edc8b047db1fa855a3.png

The two grey fields at the bottom should automatically turn into posts, and more posts should be loaded so I can scroll further down. But this doesn't work anymore, so the user is stuck with this. The smaller the screen resolution, the less content they can actually see.

In this case, I used MyPal, but New Moon behaves in the exact same way.

Hope this can be fixed!

Thank you!

upstream got a report as well: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=24489

Upstream issue #1570 has been closed via commit e5dd97f ; when @roytam1 merges this, the issue should be resolved in next weekend's UXP builds; the issue has been caused by reddit opting to use the latest (ES2020/2021) javascript bells and whistles :angry: , breaking in essence all "legacy" browsers... :realmad:

If, like me, you hate infinite scrolling (which is more suited to mobile devices with touch screens) and prefer the previous ("old") reddit layout - much more lenient on resources :thumbup - then, as suggested by @Montana Slim , you can use (auto-)redirection to "old.reddit.com", which is made very easy via userscripts like Old Reddit Redirect ; for New Moon 28/Serpent 52.9.0, you'd need Greasemonkey for Pale Moon v3.31.4 :yes:

Should you also want to revert to the previous reddit favicon, then userscripts to that purpose also exist, e.g.

// ==UserScript==
// @name     Old Reddit Favicon
// @include  https://old.reddit.com/*
// @grant    none
// ==/UserScript==
(function () {
  var link = document.querySelector('link[rel*=\'icon\']') || document.createElement('link');
  link.type = 'image/x-icon';
  link.rel = 'shortcut icon';
  link.href = 'https://i.imgur.com/veJX9o5.png';
  document.getElementsByTagName('head') [0].appendChild(link);
}) ();

360 Extreme Explorer v12, a Chinese Chromium 78 fork, that is able to run on Windows XP SP3 onwards, does not suffer from this issue; you'd better flip the flag #enable-javascript-harmony to Enabled (followed by a restart) and you can use latest reddit without issues (including infinite scrolling...) :

(the above is with build 12.0.1268.0 and dark skin/forced dark mode... ;) )

Additionally, the "Move tab(s) feature" is completely broken, too.

Does NM support webrtc?

... New Moon 28 DOES NOT support WebRTC and the same stands true for (upstream) official Pale Moon 28/29; this has been a long-standing decision made by the Moonchild team, I think after a user poll; main considerations are security and performance toll on the browser... The team currently spends very little time on the WebRTC part of the (UXP) platform code, which is mainly still present (inherited initially from Mozilla ESR 52.6.0 platform) for the sake of Basilisk 52.9.x ...

In theory, you could build yourself a custom build of New Moon 28/UXP with the --enable-webrtc config flag, but if you are a social media sites fan (where WebRTC is mostly used), then opt to use for that purpose Serpent 55.0.0/Serpent 52.9.0, where WebRTC is built and enabled by default... Or switch to another browser (are you on XP?) with WebRTC support (probably all Chromium derivatives and, though I don't use it myself on my Vista laptop, MyPal 28.9.3) ...

Personally, I avoid ALL social sites like the plague (for security/privacy/performance issues, etc.), so I have currently no need for WebRTC and the like; pretty happy then with NM28 not supporting it... However, I am a democratic person by conviction and respect the right of other people wanting something I consider a nuisance... ;)
