Well 14 mths since my last post on this thread, my Vista is still running sweetly with FF absolutely no problems.

I had to replace my laptop 2 months ago so decided to go for W10 on a DELL laptop, a bit of a mistake on my part the touch pad is ultra sensitive and apparently it is a well known issue which has not been fixed by DELL it is some thing that I will have to live with or ditch it for another brand. Sorry if it is a bit off topic.

Hello mich,

You would be well-advised to use your Windows 10 PC for all web browsing and keep your old Vista PC offline (which is exactly what I do these days). Your Vista system hasn't been patched for more than 2 years, the last-ever Firefox 52 security update was issued more than a year ago, and now your Vista has a known vulnerability called BlueKeep that does not affect Windows 8 or 10.

For those who are still determined to use Vista for web browsing: Did you see my post at the bottom of the previous page about a Chromium 69 fork from China?

I use Cyberfox 52.9.0
Welcome arcadianbue. I didn’t think Cyberfox supported Vista - in fact its sourceforge page plainly stated, “Windows Vista Unsupported.” But you must be an advanced user, because a very advanced user at MSFN once posted instructions to get that browser working on Vista. Too bad it would still not be possible to watch h.264 HD videos using Cyberfox on Vista. I’m not sure why you would prefer Cyberfox to other Firefox 52 forks that supported Vista?

Yes, true but I managed to get it working for x64 version of Vista by changing its code to recognize kernel 6 instead of 6.1....
Congratulations! I suspected you must be running Vista x64, and therefore would not be content with the x86 browsers that are always recommended at this forum. Too bad Cyberfox development ended in 2018. I wonder if you have heard of developer roytam1, who maintains builds of various Firefox forks (both x64 and x86) with support for Windows XP and Vista: My Browser Builds (Part 3). They might not be as fast as your Cyberfox, but have useful updates such as full support for TLS 1.3, and with third-party decoders you could watch h.264 videos.
