I recently added to this board that my experience is that this is true. Checked on September 2nd 2017 this morning. Tried Firefox and other variations of Firefox. Opera 12.0x and login wasnt ever possible. Might have something to do with https/ssl/certificates or such stuff. Im not sure. IE6 that wont even load google.com or youtube funnily achieved to login atleast. I dont know how long the board will still be on, but just that you know there are issues with windows 9x. And so all Windows 9x just you know, that happened also on other systems. You can ofcourse still read topics and so, but the load time may be different from browser to browser. Would be interesting to find out what the issue is, but I think it may really not be worth of the time. So just an information for all. Also: On Windows 9x you do get the message "MSFN is made available via donations, subscriptions and advertising revenue. The use of ad-blocking software hurts the site. Please disable ad-blocking software or set an exception for MSFN. Alternatively, register and become a site sponsor/subscriber and ads will be disabled automatically. " But the ads are not displayed all the time. Atleast I remember it was so on Opera 12 with inprivate mode. I didnt make any screenshots. Also the "Opera Emulator" version 11 (designed to test mobile surfing) didnt allow login. If someone own the "Opera Mini" browser please check if the board login still works, since Opera mini also uses presto engine (should be the similiar to "Opera Emulator"). Might be Opera 12.1x supports login. So maybe somebody with Windows 2000 can tell if things work better from there.
As interesting as it would be to start that thread now which is not on the priority list at the moment until MSFN can be salvaged first. I have another project AM4 with XP and possibly 98SE that would need to be solved as if AMD can't install them and work properly then it will be Intel going forward for backward compatibility. I feel that given the impending doom of MSFN < 1 Month I have another idea to try and raise funding for 1 year of keeping MSFN up as being more vital than worrying about getting the XP xHCI drivers first. On the subject of 9X/ME, have you, Dencorso or anyone else been successful at getting 98SE installed on a system with 4GB without using a commercial RAM patch? Basically a 98SE system with more than 4GB or more of memory installed and installing Windows 98SE from scratch and completing the setup process. No tweaking of the Windows .INI files and absolutely no patching of the Windows VMMs or any other Windows system files? And if this has been done who has done it? And on what systems? Has it also been done (with the same above requirements) for these memory capacities installed: 8GB 16GB 32GB 64GB 128GB or higher?
