New Moon 27 doesn't crash here, just shows an empty page with some text at the end

Same!

 

Thanks for checking!

Unfortunately, they have changed the page already (as Roy noted earlier), so no need for more testing.

 

I was hoping to find what extension/setting/etc. in my normal profile amplifies the possibility of a browser crash, but it's too late now...

 

I still get some random crashes daily, but it's hard to test when they come so unexpected. I could get few crashes in a row, or not get any for most of the day, on random sites.

The mirror of latest BNavigator, Firefox 45ESR, MailNews 52, New Moon 26.5/27/28 and Serpent 52/55 builds by @roytam1 has been updated -> soggi.org - tools.

changelog:
- added latest New Moon 27 20211204 builds
 

@roytam1 is there any chance to make Matomo work again or will it be some kind of impossible?


kind regards

you may try with firefox-tff 45 first, if it doesn't work, then it will be unlikely to be fixed in nm27.

What is "Firefox-tff 45"? Tried it with your latest release, Firefox 45ESR 45.9.34 (2021/10/09), unfortunately w/o success - screenshot below. I tried the following of your builds:

New Moon 27.10.0_20211204 -> blank screen (screenshot posted some posts above)
New Moon 28.10.4a1_20211113 -> works
Firefox 45ESR 45.9.34_20211106 -> browser is not supported due to security reasons (screenshot below)

Maybe I have to move on to New Moon 28 as Matomo is a very important tool for me!?

And it's not like having a tool running on WinXP where you can say "Let me alone, I don't care!"...for security reasons you have to have the latest version of a tool like this running PHP, JS and stuff on/from a public domain / hosting service.

kind regards

Firefox 45ESR 45.9.34_20211106 -> browser is not supported due to security reasons (screenshot below)

Anytime you see a message like this from a Web site, the first thing you should try is a user agent override. 90% of the time the site is just checking your user agent and displaying a message like that to try to frighten you into upgrading to the latest Googleware.

Since NM 28 works, try starting FF 45, going to about:config, and setting general.useragent.override to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:4.8) Goanna/20211001 PaleMoon/28.10.4a1. Then try your Web site again.

It will probably either work, or give you a blank page a la NM 27. If you get the blank page, you'll probably have to consider a UXP-based browser like NM 28 (but @roytam1 has others to choose from).

You can reset the above pref after you're done testing.

Hey @Mathwiz,

thx a lot! There was no setting general.useragent.override (first screenshot below), so I just added it via right-click -> New -> String, set it to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:4.8) Goanna/20211001 PaleMoon/28.10.4a1 - and it really works (second screenshot below)!

@roytam1 so it is maybe possible to make NM27 work with Matomo 4.6.x!?

kind regards
soggi

This may have been mentioned before, but I don't recall seeing it.

The default "Get Add-Ons" pages for IceApe-UXP, FF 45, and Serpent 55 are all broken. The others work, but MCP keeps changing their add-on sites to thwart forks like NM/Serpent (although they can be fixed with a SSUAO).

So if your "Get Add-Ons" page doesn't work (or you just don't want the default), try this easy trick to make the Classic Add-Ons Archive your "Get Add-Ons" page! (You probably get most of your add-ons from there anyway!)

  1. Install the Classic Add-Ons Archive.
  2. Start it from the Tools menu once to set up the database.
  3. Go to about:config. Accept the warning if you haven't disabled it.
  4. Search for the pref extensions.webservice.discoverURL and change it to caa:.

Now, when you go to the Get Add-Ons page, you'll get the Classic Add-Ons Archive page!

Notes: In FF 45 and IceApe-UXP, the Get Add-Ons page will unfortunately be cluttered with a JSON object listing all your installed add-ons, but you can click on any of the links at the left to get rid of that garbage. (Maybe someone can improve my trick and remove the garbage proactively.)

In IceApe-UXP, you'll probably have to download an add-on and modify its install.rdf file before you can install it. However, Hyperbola's IceWeasel and IceDove add-on pages generally work without modifications. If you want to use one of those as your "Get Add-Ons" page instead of Classic Add-Ons Archive, change extensions.webservice.discoverURL to https://iw.addons.hyperbola.info or https://id.addons.hyperbola.info respectively.

1) Is BitChute.com supposed to work with Serpent? I see only animated loading bars on video pages.

2) Has anyone got an idea what Swedbank.lv uses to detect the browser? It is a Bank. I can't even read public information on this website as long as JavaScript is enabled. It does not respond to user agent. Could we perhaps get a more thorough version obfuscation in the browser?

The bitchute.com problem was discussed recently:

Confirmed here, using Serpent 52.9.0; it would appear their web player has been optimized for recent browser engines only, because player-related scripts they serve make UXP choke :}, due to unsupported regexp

The only workaround found so far (other than using one of the 360Chrome builds) is:

Hi

No way to watch videos on bitchute with all uxp versions of Roytam1. The only way that works is to use the Palemoon or Basilisk "PmPlayer" add-on which works well with bitchute to view videos using Serpent 52 and Newmoon 28.:unsure:

I have no answer for your bank question. I'm no Javascript expert but I'd guess it's similar to the bitchute.com issue; i.e., it's not "detecting" your browser and rejecting it; it's just serving Javascript that doesn't run on it. This is becoming an increasingly common problem.

Speaking of which, one of my favorite forum boards, avsforum.com, just broke UXP too. Well, not completely; it still "works" but viewing a thread with a reply box at the bottom (i.e., any unlocked thread while signed in) sometimes spikes CPU usage and slows down the browser unacceptably. CPU usage approaches 50% so it seems one of my two CPU cores is completely saturated. Sometimes it's fine though; the unpredictability is maddening.

The first time I tried avsforum.com on 360Chrome, it locked up completely! But that seems to be resolved now and avsforum.com now works fine on 360Chrome. But I have a custom UserContent.css for avsforum.com, so I'd prefer to stick with UXP if I could find a workaround.

Wait, what is the solution, exactly? Beside 360Chrome?

I'm also encountering a lot of sites that no longer work in UXP, or even Chromium 70.

Why they're all deciding to suddenly replacing working JS with JS that doesn't work on most browsers seems asinine to me, but I guess that's to be expected.
