Recommended Posts

My Windows XP computer is equipped with only 1.5GB of RAM. And it's just SD-RAM. But in single-process mode, and using the cusom button memoryMinimizationButton and the tool Firemin, it's fine, so far. o-k.gif

Will need to try the memory and firman.


Basically, I'm only on old RAM and I've only 2GB of reliable as the other 500MB sticks are bad. My systems are very very old and showing their age.

But hey, just like me, rough around the edges and and needs a little bit more love and it sings like a crow. Wait :buehehe:

A short note on GitHub in Mypal 68. As long as there is no polyfill extension available or a new, fixed release of Mypal 68 is provided, GitHub can only be used in this browser to a very limited extent or not at all. :( This issue has been reported weeks ago and is well-known. :yes:

Updating of extensions in Mypal 68

I don't know whether other members here have already noticed that updating of extensions via the Addons Manager doesn't work at all. :no: In my system, there were new updated versions of several extensions available at the official Firefox Addons site, but checking updates via the Addons Manager leads to the message "No updates", unfortunately. I had to download and install them manually. I have already reported this in the issues of Mypal68. It's the issue #138:yes: Tested with Mypal 68.12.5b.

I had removed all links to the mozzilla including addons, for now you may update manually only and with a hassle.

Before update you are to delete the file addonStartup.json.lz4 inside the profile.

I want to know why the addonStartup.json.lz4 needed at all.

 

So is it possible with tricks in the 1st page to install another xul addon?

I already updated some extensions in the past. I did it via the update menu item of the Add-ons Manager without deleting anything before. I wasn't aware about deleting the file addonStartup.json.lz4 first. Why should it be necessary? :dubbio: Anyway, it also works without deleting this file as far as I can see.

The extensions I have already updated are working properly. I didn't notice any issues but I'll test and examine this a little more closely the nexr time. As far as I can remember, the manual updating via the update menu item in the Add-ons Manager by selecting its xpi file works as expected. :)

Hello @feodor2! As promised before, I checked the profile folder and the already updated extensions in my installation of Mypal 68. The file addonStartup.json.lz4 exists in the main folder of my profile and doesn't have to be deleted when updating extensions. Therefore, I can't confirm your statement, unfortunately or fortunately, it's up to you. jexplique.gif

I don't exactly know what you mean by the 1st page. The first page of the Add-ons Manager or the first page of an extension on Mozilla Firefox Add-ons website? interroge.gif Anyway, I already installed several extensions from the first page of an extension on Mozilla Firefox Add-ons website without any problems if the extension was really compatible with Mypal 68. Furthermore, I updated some extensions via the first page of the Add-ons Manager by using the menu item "Install add-on from file" without deleting anything before. So what is the issue? vertsennuie.gif

I'm sorry in advance to the author @AstroSkipper if I am encroaching upon your thread but I didn't know where to put it and I see you mentioned it, but please report it if you feel its in the wrong space as I'm only trying to help, not cause or add to confusion; or create a problem (issues) where there isn't one or need be.

Hello @XPerceniol! You are always welcome in my thread, and the place for your post is the right one, especially, when it comes to extensions, custom buttons, or anything related to them. :) You can contact @feodor2 in the issues on GitHub, in @Jody Thornton' Mypal 68 thread, or here in my thread.

Greetings, AstroSkipper ecrire-ordi.gif

@XPerceniol! Just an additional information! Please do not expect a prompt reply from @feodor2! He does not regularly visit our forum, only from time to time. I am saying this here so that you will not be disappointed if you do not receive a direct reply. :)

Thank you for the reminder. I don't think he visits the other XP Forum either. Which reminds me - I need to correct some errors and misinformation from myself over there, but at the time I don't know better and am still learning about Mypal.
