Firefox 24 - 52 for ME and 98

I haven't specifically tested with vxd sound drivers yet. There is no help from my side for now.

One small step - a tiny news concerning higher versions: I have Firefox 53.03 and IceWeasel 53.2 with Firefox en-US language pack running now.

K-Meleon 76: I got with builds, around June and July, a considerable slowdown on some sites, almost a freeze, also msfn bord, after a short time. It seem to be fixed with KM76.4.6-Goanna-20220813.

I've done some tests with 5 different sound cards (physical and virtual) and there is always no sound when using VxD drivers, but sound always work with WDM drivers. Additionally, when I installed some firefox plugins that allowed me to control sound parameters from browser, they said, that no sound card is detected. So probably newer firefoxes do not recognize VxDs

Firefox 54: I added [ntdll.dll] RtlDecodePointer= and RtlEncodePointer= to Kstub. Then no (error) message appears, but Firefox runs in the background only. Xul.dll is loaded. Currently version Central 54.0a1 (February 10, 2017) is still the newest I can start and run with UI.

:hello: Light Browser. Not up to date, but slimmed down. As the name says, it is significantly smaller than the corresponding Firefox version. It can start faster and use less memory. It is no longer being developed since 2016.

Portable Mode: https://sourceforge.net/p/lightfirefox/wiki/portable mode/

Version 48: It starts with UI and the graphical interface is stable. That means you can run it without Hardware Acceleration (Compositing > Basic). I guess the Light Browser is better suited for underperforming or older Hardware. You should still set AzureContentBackend to skia.

Light author cstkingkey:

"By default, Light only trust a few of Root CAs. It may cause problems.
If you run into cert problems when visiting https sites and it works with firefox, you can dowload or find nssckbi.dll shipped in firefox and put it into light's folder."

https://sourceforge.net/p/lightfirefox/wiki/certs/

Common message: Not trusted certificate because the issuer certificate has expired...     etcetera
 

I tested it with nssckbi.dll from Firefox 52.9.

It can also be newer file versions. There is nothing, even no numbering, that prevents even a current version (NSS Builtin Trusted Root CAs) - like 91.13 from being used,

Add-on "Get Archive" is a really fine thing to browse through the web archive (archive.org) for me as ME user.

Version 2.5.2 - works with Firefox 3.6 - 56.*  I can also use version 3.2 on Firefox 53 (compatible with Firefox 53 and later).
