    I went and had a look, but could only find 2 source code zips.

    Saying that, the "about" of this mypal browser says 68.13.0b

    did it auto update?

    I still need to use mypal 23.3.0, if I want to see any video

    I just downloaded and tested - seems to work better than previous versions due to javascript engine being updated to 78. Bitchute now works in MyPal 68.

    Other sites tested: Youtube, Facebook videos, ESPN videos, CNN videos.

    You can install extensions from addons.mozilla.org

    Going to keep testing and see if I encounter any other issues.

    Mypal 68.13.0b can be downloaded from here:

    Right, I can see video is working on sites which I had abandoned because of problems such as youtube, which I was now using through Duckduckgo's search engine page.

    The site I use the most is the BBC for weather & news, but they appear to reject video requests if the "User Agent" is set for firefox compatibility. Gekko & Native are OK.

    As I can't find the User Agent setting in version 68, that's stopped the video from the BBC and necessarily using 68 daily; although I do try it when certain buttons like "place a bid" on ebay UK won't work, instead of using auctionsniper as the work around.

    I have to say the options page is huge, but very little on it compared to 29.3 dialog boxes.

    It seems like "win some / lose some" but I seem to lose more than we win at the moment.

    Download the following addon:

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fi...la.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=search

    Go to the extension's options menu and paste the following user agent string into the user preset field and hit 'save'.

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:109.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/113.0

    [​IMG]

    If you added the user agent correctly it should appear at the bottom of the list in the extension's drop down menu.

    Go to https://www.whatismybrowser.com/

    You should see this screen:

    BBC videos should now play in MyPal 68 (they wouldn't play for me either without changing the user agent).

    It's sad that websites still rely on user agents rather than browser capability before serving content.

    I also recommend ArcticFoxie's 360Chrome builds for XP. Try it and see if it works better for you.

    Clippy,
    I'm glad you're keeping on top of this. I tried both the agent addon & ArcticFoxie's 360Chrome. Both worked a treat although I'm having trouble remembering which browser I'm using these days and where to find things like bookmarks/tabs etc as they are all consonantly changing, so still using 29.3 most of the time.

    Today I noticed this -mypal-68.13.1.en-US.win32.zip
    https://www.mypal-browser.org/download.html

    I tried it for a few minutes, but the tabs at the top drive me to distraction.

    Do you remember firefox's mantra, something about customizing it the way YOU
    wanted it to look, a bit like Microsoft in the 1990's, "all apps to look the same, making
    them easier to use". Well we've certainly moved on from those halcyon days.

    Tim

    Can anyone send to me, or point me to, a copy of 360chrome ungoogled? All of ArticFoxie's dropbox links are offline.

    Here it is:

    Note that these are not "rebased". A rebased download may become available in the future if one is still required among our userbase.

    Oh I guess it was just an issue with my installation of jDownloader, because it's working in Mypal, thanks

    My hope is that ArcticFoxie will return here as he is a member and update others, but yes, check MSFN until then.
