I have never enabled automatic updates since Windows 3.

And after a lot of messing around, I have my Win3 desktop.

I'm on 8.1 but it can be done!

Although I run Windows 10 on a new machine, my main desktop - the one I'm using at the moment, runs 64 bit Windows 7. I'm going to make the move up to Windows 10 on this machine soon for improved security and to start using an SSD and a 3T hard drive. As Win 10 will be a complete new installation, I plan to be a bit more careful about the software I install. For example, MS Office will be replaced with Libre, although I will stay with Avast. That aside, I think I'm going to revert to Pale Moon in preference to Firefox. I am currently running Firefox 63, but have found it a bit lumpy at times. Tried Opera, which is not bad, but really not quite as slick as Firefox. I don't know what it is about Firefox, but one release seems okay and the next is not so good. Maybe it's just me?

I have found Palemoon has got a lot slower recently, in particular with VEF where it can sometimes hang for 10s+ between clicking a topic and the page flipping over.

I'm experimenting with Waterfox which is based on a much later version of Firefox than Palemoon and liking it so far, but I'm no techy.

I've also found that the old ScrapBook add-on that runs on Waterfox (still overall runs well with VEF) does not get along with any VEF content anymore. I have had to move to DownThemAll, another old Waterfox-compatible add-on, requiring that every image be loaded in its own tab (something that Scrapbook didn't require). However, DTA doesn't usually work with Pimp and Host images (based on some of the posts I've read, it's an issue with their web page coding, not surprisingly).



For embedded videos, the old version of the Video Download Helper is still working with Waterfox, but not flawlessly. If you using Quantum FF, the newer version of VDH, installed along side the OS-specific version of the companion app, while with minimal settings & a lot of fiddling with the few settings it has, is the most reliable method of downloading embedded videos I've found, even grabbing those obnoxious "blocked" YouTube videos. Like the best video downloaders, it simulates the playing of the video in the browser, forcing the host to stream the hard-to-download videos in the small chunks, and then putting the chunks back together at the end, to give you a usable video file.
