Firefox Quantum

I found one issue with newest Firefox, when you Need to open mhtml files: From MHTML: Firefox Firefox was for many years, like most browsers, a good way to both create and read .mht and mhtml files. Mozilla Firefox previously required an extension to be installed to read and write MHT files. Two ext...

Firefox Quantum

Quoting myself... duh... Also, installing binutils 7.6 M or 6.9 M... I recally now why I had "ar" in my porteus/rootcopy, cause I believe activating binutils just for "ar" is quite the overkill… Are there "ar" modules that just have the needed ar (and probably some library ar needs as well) for 3.1 ...

Jack's version of Porteus 4.0 x86-64 - 3 Desktop's

I started LCDE 4.0rc4 and logged in as guest, executing "slim" … but nothing happens.

Firefox Quantum

How many things does Quantum drop support for? Flash? Java? User mods? I have no clue, I never saw it running on any machine... And this article https://www.cnet.com/news/firefox-quantum-update-mozilla-brings-speed-and-a-new-look/ says nothing about Flash or Java... :( Who wants Java? With all its ...

Firefox Quantum

Since I found 0 hits for a forum search for "Firefox Quantum" I presume it is not really tested by the Porteus community? I read about it on several IT sites that it should be quite the performance improvement compared with the regular Firefox. :) Is it possible to create an update-firefox-quantum s...

That is the way my build is setup, you download the ISO and pick which Desktop you want to try.
Indeed it is... but I won't be testing the official Version.

We're lucky to have minds like this that are actively public. She is the ideal spokeswoman for mother earth. Educated and sympathetic.
I could not have said it any better.

I presume you also listened to her in person?

Jack's version of Porteus 4.0 x86-64 - 3 Desktop's

I just thought I will need to build a 32 bit Porteus 4.0 USB to use brokenman script file. At least creating XZM modules works fine, I created lots of 32 bit modules running x86-64 Porteus, and also created 64 bit modules when running a 32 bit machine / running on 32 bit Porteus.
