    I use YouTube without issue. I've seen many issues for GMail address. Best to chack out their forums, since I don't use GMail. I think the short answer though is a definite "Yes"

    Welcome back to Vista Forums quinncy, and thank you for bringing the situation with Opera 36 and 37 to our attention. Sounds like even more bad news for Vista users, although Opera 36 will at least still be supported (unlike Chrome). This appears to be the official announcement: Initial Opera developer 37 release – Opera Desktop - Opera Software.

    Well I have been perfectly happy with plain vanilla Firefox - but a year ago I was still using IE 9 exclusively, so perhaps I'm not that hard to please. I have lately been reading about Pale Moon, the Firefox fork that has been advocated by a few forum members in this thread and elsewhere. One thing in particular that strikes me as remarkable: Pale Moon is the only software product I know of that has ended support for XP without also ending support for Vista at the same time (Hurray!): https://www.palemoon.org/PM_end_of_WinXP_support.shtml. I especially like this quote: "Being able to use more modern (Vista and later) windows kernel functions improves stability and overall performance of the browser." At last, a developer who acknowledges that Vista is not XP's younger brother, but rather Win7's older brother, instead of just tossing out Vista with the XP bathwater because Vista's user base is small. Before long I will have to give Pale Moon a try!

    @Vistaar: That's true, and yeah it just shows there are developers/companies that make some sense even now. It's silly to discontinue a 2006 OS with a 2001 OS, though of course, it just seems no developer has bothered to do that except Moonchild.

    @Cammygirl192 and other Pale Moon users: Does CCleaner Free work well with Pale Moon, or would one also need CCEnhancer? Have you ever had Firefox and Pale Moon installed at the same time, and are there problems with that?

    Yes it does. It detects mine as Pale Moon (underneath the Firefox section). I use CCEnhancer though as well.

    Have you ever had Firefox and Pale Moon installed at the same time, and are there problems with that?
    I have both installed on my laptop, no conflicts with either installation or running at same time.

    I don't use the CCleaner type of programs, I let Sandboxie erase any temporary browsing files and traces.
