    Yes they can because they use different directories for the profile data. I have MyPal 68 and MyPal 29 in XP, both can be run simultaneously without conflict.

    MyPal 68 on top and MyPal 29 on bottom. To find the profile directory in any Mozilla browser simply type
    Code:
    about:profiles
    in the url bar.

    Yes a good link. Thank you very much Elisabeth.

    Thanks ClippyBeer.

    I originally thought the issue was unique to MyPal based on an early posting (Github?) I saw somewhere and didn't bother to follow. And I presumed the worst, thinking maybe the author wanted to bury the controversy with the old MyPal serves me right for not investigating it myself.

    And that's why I come here...:)

    The registry won't conflict either because they are different. 68 shows up as a loader, rather Mypal 28-29 does not. Over at MSFN we are assured that the registry entry is safe and no cause for concern. I do trust AstroSkipper.

    You could also make your Mypal 68 (sort of) portable, I do that now, but still, I'd monitor your appdata application data folders and the mozilla plugins.

    This just in: IMHO Coincidence is the rule, not the exception.. there are no coincidences...
    Tried to pay a utility bill online today and it would not go to final page as it has in the past on Basilisk 52. So I opened up MyPal 68 and it took the payment with nary a hiccup.
    I see I will be diving into this much more. Did I say thanks? Thanks!

    Just wanted to say ...the latest MP68 is working as great as expected, but I've junk for computers and graphic card do can't enable much anyway (webgl, wasm, acceleration, web components) Have to settle for low experience.

    Sorry guys I've not been posting over here, I haven't been doing very well, but am getting better and reply to posting. Things have changed in this new version and I will update as you can disregard my pref suggestions, while most are valid.

    Of course, this being a personal decision on whether or not to disable safe browsing. If you feel you need it, best to leave it at the defaults. This goes in the same line of "real-time" antivirus and your comfort level.

    We're still trying to learn more about this "launcher"

    user_pref("browser.launcherProcess.enabled", true);
