Firefox and youtube

Please confirm, does Firefox 38 support youtube?

I am using ArcaOS 5.0 and Firefox doesn't support playback of videos.

If I remember correctly, no.

You need to try the latest FF.  I have used both the  FFPentium and the FFSandyBrige and both work good.

https://bitbucket.org/dryeo/dry-comm-esr31/downloads/


FFSandyBridge 45.9.0 runs just about everything I throw at it except for sites that require a Windows browser.  I use the OS/4 kernel, the FFSandyBridge, and the AVX libs since the OS/4 kernel can use AVX.  For some reason, I cannot find Dave's AVX libs on line.

The FFPentium runs good with the OS/2 kernel.

With Firefox 38.8.0 I could play Youtube videos, but some months ago that stopped.
Apparently Youtube no longer supports Firefox 38.8.0 , but it still allows Firefox 45.9.

Tom, you are right.  It worked for a very short time and quit working.  That was when I switched to FF45.9.0.

I haven't tried it in sometime but others have answered. Make sure you have the FFmpeg libs installed.

This is a known problem, fixed by updating to FF45.9 for now.
My latest Firefox builds are now at https://bitbucket.org/dryeo/mozilla-os2/downloads/. Using a newer compiler seems to have helped with stability.

Here the appreciated i686 build appends entries to POPUPLOG.OS2, albeit I haven't rebooted yet. But I did type the matching SET LIBPATHSTRICT and SET BEGINLIBPATH commands before typing FIREFOX.EXE:

Solved. The only technically required change since FF 45.5 for i686+ CPUs. I didn't use the newer, experimental LIBCX0.DLL. Just curious: is the icon of FF 45.9 (i686, one (ZIP file) size fits all, including sometimes limited disk sizes) a new FF icon?

Generic remark, without FFTURBO.EXE in use: closing FF too soon after deleting the cache files, before a Pentium 4 desktop CPU calmed down, triggered the quick creation of a TRP file. Apparently in a section of code related to closing FF. Patience seems to be an obvious solution.

The icon hasn't been changed in a while, and then it was just making it lower bit depth to work around a lxlite issue, which corrupts 32 bit colour icons.
Yes others have reported that it is best to wait till the CPU calms down before closing.

Why not take the icon that comes with the ArcaOS browser and delete the 24 bit icons and leave the 8 bit.  It still looks good on the desktop.  I have attached the icons I was talking about

As far as I know, I am using the 8bit versions. Here's the ones in the source tree.
Edit, why don't mine show up here?
Edit2, OK, it is your png file that shows. Not sure how to make one.
Edit3, screen capture. Seems the nightly/thunderbird-os2.ico is broken.

I worked on your FFnightly icon to see if it could possibly be improved.  Can't upload from work.  The differences are  that the 40x40 icon is larger and that the white pixels on the icon rims are less.  Will upload after work.  If you like the old one after seeing my modifications, just trash it.

One of the things I just learned is that jpg's are better for converting  to OS/2 icons.

I'm sure all the icons could be improved. They're just the Windows icons converted to OS/2 format.
As I said, they have to be low colour to survive being lxlited as lxlite has a bug that corrupts high colour icons.

FWIW, I redrew the Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey icons for ArcaOS.  (They're the same design, just updated from upstream, rescaled, and touched up.)  If you have any ArcaOS DVD you can find them zipped in the \CID\SERVER\MOZILLA directory - feel free to take and use them, since obviously we have no IP claim on them.  As you say, you would probably want to delete the 24-bit devices if compiling them into the binary.

Here is the modified nightly.  Main change is that the 40x40 icon is just that and not 32x32.  Also eliminated some of the outer white pixels.
