My Browser Builds (Part 4)


Recommended Posts

Thank you very much @AstroSkipper! :)

I think it's some kind of IP blocking and it seems your provider's IPs aren't involved. While trying WinSCP via several proxies I got the error message that proxy connections aren't supported. I'm online with Telekom, maybe their IP ranges are the problem!?

I know this is very off-topic, but maybe someone of you can mirror one (or both) of these two FTPs? BTW it's not that off-topic as you may think, because the most of us use old (but gold) technology which is unfortunately falling behind for years or even decades and (re)sources getting more and more lost - latest browsers even don't support the FTP protocol anymore.

OK...one older post, I can answer to. Recently I had to join f***ing paypal :realmad:, because the four colorful letters don't accept my payment through Apple Pay - and while having a paypal acc I instantly got in mind to donate some bucks to MSFN, hopefully it helps! :cool:

kind regards
soggi

@roytam1 could you please answer the following questions?

- Your ArcticFox 40 build requires SSE2?
- Your Firefox 28 build doesn't require SSE (or later)?
- Your RetroZilla 2.2 / RZ browser 2.2 builds don't require SSE (or later)?
- Your Palefill Polyfill 1.23 build doesn't replace your GitHub / GitLab Polyfill 1.2.19.3 build?

my ArcticFox 40 build is a "normal" build so it requires SSE2

my Firefox 28 build is plain VC2005 build so it doesn't require SSE/SSE2.

my RetroZilla 2.2 is plain VC6 build so it doesn't require SSE/SSE2.

my Palefill Polyfill 1.23 mod changes only install.rdf to allow SP55 to install. and the question of replacing GHLpf 1.2.19.3 is a "no", but I don't have decent idea on updating GHLpf for now.

Mypal68 does work on that site. Are there any scripts that I can put in my browser folder to

make all the sites work? The Iheart sites for one.

None that I'm aware of and according to this, the only way to have dynamic imports working is having it implemented in the browser's JS engine.

Hi @soggi,

I can open ftp://ftp.dyu.edu.tw/pub/  with all my browsers.
But I can't open ftp://ftp.cc.ntut.edu.tw/pub/  with all browsers I tried, I even tried few countries (US Central, US East, US West, Canada East,
Canada West, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland) with VPN but still nothing, I also get timeout.

It offered to download the file from ftp://ftp.cc.ntut.edu.tw/pub/Hardware/Diamond/display/fire-gl/fire-gl-1000-pro/b1kp154.exe  but after download
it had size 0 bytes, so it was not successful.

Thank you for the explanation ... as I DO use this browser on my Dell Dimension 3000. Have you updated to files to play youtube? For some reason I can't locate them so I've just been using ones from early this year. Still works like a charm.

Does anybody notice that the recent (I'll check the exact version later) Serpent 52 has bug in text input box? As I am writing this post, I cannot use backspace and del to edit text: backspace brings me back to previous page,  which is annoying when the site do not have backup of what I have typed, and del just does nothing. But they works if some text be selected first. This only affects web page's text input, not URL input or search input. Safe-mode tested too.

ps. New profile doesn't have this bug.

Not sure if that's technically a "bug" but rather INTENTIONAL.

SEVERAL variants of Chrome do that backspace to previous page CRAP.

Here's how to disable backspace to previous page using a Monkey Script  --

 

// ==UserScript==
// @name Disable Backspace
// @version 3.0.1
// @include http://*
// @include https://*
// @require http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.4/jquery.js
// @run-at document-start
// ==/UserScript==

var backstayCurrentLocation;

$(document).keydown(function(e) {
    // If backspace is pressed
    if (e.which === 8) {

        var active = $(document.activeElement);

        notEditable = function(element) {
            var edit = element.attr('contenteditable');

            // Ensure backspace still works on any element with contenteditable="true"
            if (typeof edit !== 'undefined' && edit !== false) {
                return true;
            } else if (element.is('input, textarea')) {
                return true;
            } else if (active.attr('type') == 'application/x-shockwave-flash' || active.attr('type') == 'application/x-silverlight-2') {
                return true;
            }
            return false;
        }
        return notEditable(active);
        window.onbeforeunload = function() {
            return "Backstay: Are you sure you want to navigate away?";
        }
    }
});

Is it supposed to have greasemonkey add-on? I have heard about it but never tried. Anyway this is not I wanted; I'd like to keep the "back to the previous page" function of backspace key, as it is before, when the input focus is outside of the text box.

After some tests I have pinned three preconditions for that bug to appear:

1, version: the latest basilisk52-g4.8.win32-git-20221029-3219d2d-uxp-a6338caef-xpmod.7z.

2, multi-process option opened, that is,  browser.tabs.remote.force-enable;true

3, my old profile

The 3rd condition is hard to debug. Given version 20221015 is fine at all scenes. I think maybe this changelog is relevant:

Issue #2019 - Do not dispatch keypress event for non-printable keys. (1392f5f22)

The path that works for me is:

ftp://ftp.dyu.edu.tw/pub/Hardware/vendor/Diamond/display/fire-gl/fire-gl-1000-pro/b1kp154.exe

(206 KiB file...) ;)

Hi. It didn't work for me. I get a "can't fetch  http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.4/jquery.js" kind of error.

However, the following script works:

Odd.  Working for me in 360Chrome v13.5.

Why not just set browser.backspace_action in about:config according to your preference rather than mess with user scripts?

Chrome variants cannot set the backspace via about:config.  I am not familar enough with Serpent 52 and offered the solution I use in 360Chrome.  Good do know there's an about:config solution for Mozilla variants.  :thumbup

I just assumed an interest in Mozilla solution since it was posted in this thread. Sure, userscripts can be useful and work in different browsers, but native solution should be more direct under the hood.

Chrome had backspace bound to navigation-back action in the past, but that was many versions ago and the official solution for those that want it back is Go Back With Backspace. Guess Chinese re-hardcoded backspace navigation-back while Edge users may actually have a settable flag in edge://flags, depending on the version.
