My Browser Builds (Part 3)


Recommended Posts

Mighty fine, mighty fine!

Serpent 52.9 sits this one out... I chose Serpent as my replacement for Mozilla Fireferret 52.9 because it scored the highest on http://html5test.com and still does 481 out of 555, KMGoanna does 439 same as New Moon.

Am I correct in such classification?

regexp group problem is not the thing that palefill can fix:

23:43:40.376 SyntaxError: invalid regexp group 1 common.a7451d66741fd9fd.js:1:307

This (regexp groups) is becoming an issue on more and more web sites.

Question for those who frequent the upstream forums: Has there been any progress on dealing with this, or is it a "toughie" like Web Components seems to be?

No progress at all, it seems...

Vanilla Pale Moon user here, also feeling impracticality due to those. Can't use Google Drive, can't use Nextcloud, couldn't even buy a vignette on evinjeta.dars.si (toll payment method to use motorways over here).

My stopgap (Win7+ only) solution with close to classic GUI (with CTR addon) is Waterfox Classic, but it's also slowly becoming obsolete. :(

... In addition to the Pale Moon forum thread linked to by @nicolaasjan , pertaining to Regex Named Capturing Groups, UXP is also plagued by lack of support for another Regex "feature"  I "spoke" about in my Aug 29th post:

Hopefully it's something minor :)

Sadly, it's not; as your posted Error Console Log says, this is due to missing Regex Unicode Property Escapes support in UXP :( ; upstream have open issues for it at:

https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProductions/UXP/issues/1282

(=> https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProductions/UXP/issues/1286 [closed, unresolved]

=>) https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProductions/UXP/issues/1675

but they have seen little action as of late... :(

So, as you see, complete SNAFU in the RegExp "front"... :( :whistle:

I'm still using github-wc-polyfill-1.2.19.xpi, but seeing there's a lot more activity around palefill, would it be wise to use this instead?

I used github-wc-polyfill for a longer time. Unfortunately, there wasn't any activity since April. Therefore, I changed completely to palefill a few months ago. :yes: And, I am totally happy with that. :)

if you use github/gitlab only, github-wc-polyfill is faster as it doesn't calculate script hash everytime.

latest version is here: https://github.com/JustOff/github-wc-polyfill/issues/68#issuecomment-1250325691

Micro$oft must require its GitHub developers to shoehorn in at least one use of every newly-announced Javascript feature, so that something on GitHub will break every time Google thinks up anything new!
Luckily, downloading new releases still works (for now).

... As it turns out, your "friends" over at Microsoft must be really liking your posts and the "new ideas" presented to them (just joking, of course! :P ;) ) ...

So they thought: Matt did mention that "downloading new releases still works (for now)", so let's just scratch that! (:realmad:) Hence:

https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=28849  (do click, it's safe ;))

which, in turn, necessitated

https://github.com/martok/palefill/issues/47 and

https://github.com/martok/palefill/commit/3a480ab

TL;DR: Assets (under Releases) have been hidden behind a WebComponents-requiring "wizard", thus fresh installs of UXP-based browsers are unable to access, among anything else released in GitHub, the very one (two, if you count gh-wc-pf) extension that would make them GitHub compatible :realmad: ... Fortunately, workarounds are available...

In retrospect, that was a smart thing to do! :thumbup Comment attachments are accessible by UXP-based browsers without palefill or gh-wc-pf...
