OK, thanks. I just assume that these sites are tracking as I know that they're very interested in tracking everyone.
The good news is no more warnings or errors in the console.
Unluckily, the padlock is still yellow. Might just be a subtle bug in the browser or perhaps restarting it will fix, I'll report if it does.
BTW, I currently have the os2world scripts blocked.

Hi Again.

The OS2World Wiki is now showing a green padlock and I also updated it to MediaWiki 1.30.0. The update was not that complicated and the wiki seems to work fine.

I'm getting the "You have requested an encrypted page that contains insecure information..." warning on a lot of the miscellaneous pages (Software News pages, Bounty System, etc). It's caused by this:

Also, while you're tweaking things, you may want to update your profile and get rid of the link to your AOL Instant Messenger account. May it Rest In Peace...

Hi Rich

I removed the IM stuff form the wiki, the links was useless. I also removed the social network pluggin from Joomla articles, until I get a newer/better one.

At least you tried without reading the Release Notes or checking the requirements. By this procedure you broke the stylesheets (MediaWiki:Common.css) you copied and pasted in summer 2017. For instance no bullets for unordered lists show up now.

Hi Andreas.

Your sarcasm / sharp comments are not helping.

There is a difference between saying:

and

Quote
No bullets for unordered lists show up now. Please check that, it seems that the style sheets got broken. 

The second way is more efficient and it doesn't makes you look that bad.

Please post the links of the pages that are not working. MediaWiki replaced/changed the skin on newer versions.
Regards

Hi.

It seems to be some issue with "Firefox 45.9.0" displaying the bullets of MediaWiki 1.30.0.
Update: Firefox 38.8.0 on OS/2 does not sees the bullets too.

Hi

I checked the "MediaWiki 1.30.0 bullets incident" on Windows, using Firefox 45.9.0 and the bullets shows in Windows.
My only guess is that there is a limitation on Firefox for OS/2 that does not allows that bullets to be displayed.

I'm attaching my four tests.

Regards

Actually it may be a fontconfig issue. The bullets display fine in older versions of the browser that uses mzfntcfgft (SeaMonkey 2.28 or older) or the native font support (SeaMonkey 1.19). Images below.
(Warning, use a scratch profile for older versions of the browser)

That's not correct. I was talking about different issues and giving only one example. I cannot make any comment about relations. I don't know about the content of the configuration file or the server configuration.

To the facts:
Your Common.css (from 2017) tries to use the templates Editnotice‏‎ and Refbegin‏‎, which are not available.

Further you try to use extensions without the installation of the required backend libraries.
Especially GIF files will create a visual hell when resized.

The easiest workaround is to display a message to use older Mozilla builds for OS/2 or to migrate to Windows-based Mozilla applications which you're already using for editing.
