Hello, dear roytam1! Are you planning to update your browser builds for Windows 98/2000 in the future? Namely the following browsers:

It is necessary to add support for the new encryption protocol TLS 1.3 to the above browsers, since in the future (from 2021-2022) many modern sites (including Wikipedia, mobile versions of VKontakte and Odnoklassniki) may refuse support for TLS 1.2 and switch to TLS 1.3, which is not supported on old browsers. Thanks in advance.

I got New Moon 28 working in a Windows 2000 Virtual Machine.

roytam1, in Firefox 52.9 it is possible to install some new extensions with AMO by creating extensions.checkCompatibility.52.9 (false)

example: "PotPlayer YouTube Shortcut" or "Worldwide Radio"

This option does not work in the BOC/UXP (Serpent). Can this be fixed ?

I have a problem with one big site to report.

It is rozetka.com.ua

Several days ago they changed something and Nor last Serpent, not New Moon not Firefox 52.9ESR CAN NOT LOGIN in this site. I was logged in by default in both Serpent and New Moon and 52.9ESR and there is now no logged in browser in my XP system in rozetka. And any attempt to log in end up with nothing. You put login and password there, occasionally "robot check" happen and nothing.

I try on windows 7 with Firefox 78ESR - it logged easily even with "robot check". So something now missing in Serpent and New Moon that block use biggest online shop in whole country. Roytam1, please fix it. I understand that there is language problem, cause rozetka have only UA and RU language version, but maybe view through google translate will help. Or some ukr\rus users can figured out why this happen now.

 

Correction. I check Pale Moon last version with Windows 7 and it can not login in rozetka also now. So it is not a New Moon problem. I than check Pale Moon forum and found complain from another user that can't login. Moonchild post this:

It seems to me, this is a Rozetka JS-coders error (see error console):

It is.
They are using a global ambiguous event ('event') instead of the event passed into the event handler function ('e').
We do not support ambiguous global event references, never have, and in fact it's strongly discouraged even by the powers-that-be.

So this is rozetka.com.ua fault not New Moon or Pale Moon. The problem is now that i can't even find contacts on they site. No email support - nothing. This is ridiculous - i wanna inform them about problem and i cant find any contacts to them.

but not possible, since newer NSS uses features and new code syntax that old compiler can't support.

FWIW the Yahoo IMAP folder gets easily corrupted, regardless if it's mailnews or the latest Thunderbird and it has for years. I regularly delete the ImapMail folder in the profile since it re-generates when checking emails.

Both will also download the Yahoo junk folder when starting the program on occasion despite not being set to but will disappear after checking emails. I don't know if that happens with all IMAP accounts since Yahoo is the only one I've got.

It is likely related to google and Yahoo server side things. Both treat third party clients as insecure. Good to know it is also on thunderbird and that deleting imapmail helps usually

On latest basilisk52, vanilla and otherwise, the browser gets a connection from 104.22.12.159 (detectportal.palemoon.org). I do not want to enter this address into the firewall because it would block acces to palemoon's website and extensions. Can you check it out? Thanks!

See:

https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?t=631

And:

https://github.com/roytam1/UXP/issues/18

Try what happens when you add:

0.0.0.0 detectportal.palemoon.org

to your hosts file.

Or delete the string value of captivedetect.canonicalURL in about:config.

And/or set network.captive-portal-service.enabled to false.

I prefer not to use the host, or the firewall, when I can avoid it. Following your suggestions, I added to the following lines to user.js 

user_pref("captivedetect.canonicalURL","''");
user_pref("network.captive-portal-service.enabled", false);

Thanks!

No problem!

I just googled "detectportal.palemoon.org" (4 results).

[Edit]

I just noticed that network.captive-portal-service.enabled is already set to false by default in New Moon 28.
