  1. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    @Bersaglio You explanation seems reasonable. My T41 does not detect a new version of Firefox when I run the update check (it says 52.4.0 is up to date), so I'm assuming that Mozilla is only intending the 52.4.1 update for Mac users.
  2. Last Versions of Software for Windows 98SE

    I don't see this mentioned anywhere, but CPU-Z 1.78 was released for Windows 98 in November 2016. Considering the current version is 1.81, this isn't that old at all. Windows 98 support had been dropped with CPU-Z 1.57, but was revived with CPU-Z 1.76 in April 2016: https://www.cpuid.com/news/44-cpu-z-1-76-broadwell-e-and-windows-98.html https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html (direct download http://download.cpuid.com/cpu-z/cpu-z_1.78-win98.zip)

    @Bersaglio That's very interesting! Why was the Windows binary updated?!
  4. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    @Sampei.Nihira I reported this type of "bug" back in March with Firefox 52. "Firefox 52 does not pull incremental update on Windows XP, manual pull needed" https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1348878 Please try the suggestions in that thread. Otherwise you can download the 52.4.1 update directly from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.4.1esr/win32/en-US/Firefox Setup 52.4.1esr.exe
  5. Latest Version of Software Running on XP

    The latest 7-Zip 17.01 beta from August 28, 2017 still works on Windows XP. It runs on my ThinkPad T23 with Pentium III, so there is clearly no SSE2 dependency. There is no XP Service Pack 3 dependency either, because I have tested it on SP2.
  6. Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

    Good morning, it's Patch Tuesday! Adobe Flash has been released. Tested and working on Windows XP. Internet Explorer ActiveX: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/ Mozilla Firefox NPAPI, and NPAPI for Google Chrome 44 and older: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/ Google Chrome 45 to 49 PPAPI: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/ Old version uninstaller: https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashruntimes/flashplayer/uninstall_flash_player.exe
  7. Latest Version of Software Running on XP

    I'm a couple months late, but just noticed the latest version of CoreTemp32 still works on XP. I'm running it on my ThinkPad T23 which means it also still works with SSE processors, maybe older ones as well. It's a handy program with a small footprint. CoreTemp32 1.10.2, released August 7, 2017. You can download the standalone ZIP file by clicking on "More downloads" below the Download button: http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/
  8. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    @dencorso I don't want to bother the good folks over at Mozilla. They are going to be busy for the next 8 months cooking up ESR patches for Windows XP. I expect the final official release to be 52.8.0 in June 2018. I am hoping we can come up with an unofficial port to continue XP support by then. The folks over at FloodGap made TenFourFox for PowerPC Macs, which haven't been supported by Apple in over 10 years. @i430VX I am glad you could see where I'm coming from. By the way, I was just taking a trip down memory lane. While it doesn't work for all sites due to browser version sniffing, CNN loads just fine with Internet Explorer 6.0, as long as you have Google Frame installed (it has been discontinued a while ago but I archived it: http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp2/GoogleChromeframeStandaloneEnterprise.msi)
  9. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    To me, the wording is confusing. I thought that it meant that "if you enable notifications now, no notifications will be shown until you restart Firefox." This seems perfectly logical, because most browsers tell you that changes will not take effect until you restart the browser.
  10. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    @bluebolt @bphlpt It is bedtime here on the East Coast, but I am going to have to dig out an older version of portable ESR 52 and check out the behavior. It used to be that once this box was selected, it would save it permanently unless you unchecked it. It seems silly that you would have to reset the setting every single time you launch Firefox.
  11. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    There seems to be a bug with Firefox ESR 52.4.0. Upon checking "Do not disturb me" and then closing and re-opening the browser, the box keeps unchecking itself. This was not a bug in previous versions. (I do not want to receive notifications from web sites.) Can anyone else test and confirm on XP system with this version? I'm trying to determine if it is just my system, or a chronic problem. I want to duplicate the problem so I can submit a bug report to Mozilla.
  12. @dencorso @jumper I stand corrected. I think I might have been thinking of MMX support, which was first seen with the later 1996 Pentiums. So, I think this means that Firefox 3.6.28 was the final version for the Pentium and Pentium II: (https://web.archive.org/web/20120525091229/http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/3.6/system-requirements/)
  13. I happened to stumble across some links in Mozilla's FTP, and came across some Firefox builds that were never officially released. For example, I downloaded the ZIP file for US English Firefox 45.9.1; I believe the final public release was 45.9.0 because I couldn't find the release notes for 45.9.1. I wonder why 45.9.1 wasn't officially released. Firefox ESR 45.x is unique as it is the final ESR to run on SSE only processors such as the Pentium/Pentium II/Pentium III. http://bucketlister-delivery.prod.mozaws.net/pub/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-esr45-win32/ In there, the very first build is 45.0: http://bucketlister-delivery.prod.mozaws.net/pub/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-esr45-win32/1456425508/ The last build: http://bucketlister-delivery.prod.mozaws.net/pub/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-esr45-win32/1497368434/ You can find the other earlier/later builds here: http://bucketlister-delivery.prod.mozaws.net/pub/firefox/tinderbox-builds/ You'll notice I have deliberately spoofed the user agent for Firefox 52, so I don't get silly messages that my browser is out of date.
  14. List of Web Browsers Working with XP 2017

    Firefox 52.4.0 became available on Mozilla's FTP today at 13:59 EST. The official release isn't technically until tomorrow. The United States English (en-US) version is here: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.4.0esr/win32/en-US/Firefox Setup 52.4.0esr.exe

    @JodyT I can confirm that the site is currently down. http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/kmeleonbrowser.org.html However, on the most recent archived page from September 21, 2017, I don't see any mention that they would be going anywhere. https://web.archive.org/web/20170921102329/http://kmeleonbrowser.org/ Maybe they forgot to pay the bill.
