"Welcome back, your dreams were your ticket out..."
Sorry I got a little sidetracked.

Well I'm back and again with an issue but this time it's
Slackware current with Alien Bob's October updates for Slackware Plasma 5 desktop

Mozilla Firefox 56 is completely black except for the menu decorations.

Obviously an issue with the graphics driver?

I tried uninstalling and re-installing, doing the same with packages from a different mirror, using Firefox's safe mode,
starting with a new profile, and starting with everything backed up to another folder but nothing appeared to help.

On further inspection it looks like I was actually running Slackware current around the time of 14.1 not 14.2.
Worked my way from beginning to end (ie backwards) using Alien Bob's README to make sure I removed all the old packages
and installed all the new packages.

Going backwards to Firefox 55 gives me a similar issue but with everything white except for the window decorations and similar errors in Konsole.
Going backwards to Firefox 52 ESR I get a white window. Menus and window decorations okay but with similar errors in Konsole.
Going backwards to Firefox 45 ESR and all appears well except on occasion the window glitches. Looks like the window shakes a bit.
Going to try and catch video of it the next time it happens.

So far, except for Firefox 56, everything I've checked appears to be working.
I'm currently using Firefox 45 ESR. Seamonkey from current works fine.

I've come across posts with a similar issue (black screen in Firefox) and the
recommendation is to update the drivers.

Basic specs:

Quote

Intel Core i5 4460 (3.20 GHz)
8 GB DDR3
1 TB HDD
Intel HD Graphics 4600

Problem with e10s between the working (45) vs non working version (56)?
Problem with plugins not using webExtensions?
It didn't work when I tried installing fresh with no plugins.

I'm assuming Firefox 56 should work.
It works w/e10s turned on in Arch Linux on the same machine.
e10s currently off.

Currently searching and reading up on:
Crash Annotation GraphicsCriticalError: |[0][GFX1-]: Failed 2 buffer

Anyway, does anyone has any hints or clues regarding this issue?

Thanks in advance.
Cheers

Adobe Reader XI and Acrobat XI -- End-of-Life

21 Oct 2017

Posted by Corrine in Security & Networking
Adobe provides product support from the general availability date of  Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader for five years.  The five-year date was  October 15, 2017, meaning Adobe Reader XI and Acrobat XI have reached  end-of-life.  As a result, Adobe will no longer be providing technical  support for those products.  This also includes both product and, more  importantly, security updates.

If either or both of these programs are installed on your computer it is  strongly advised that you uninstall them as soon as possible.  If you  wish to stay with Adobe products, the Adobe Acrobat Reader DC can be  downloaded from here.

Note:  UNcheck any  pre-checked additional  options presented with  the download. They are not  part of the software and are completely  optional.

If you use Windows 10, Microsoft Edge works great to read PDF  documents.  In addition, new features are included in the Windows 10  Fall Creators Update.   See How Microsoft Edge will beat Chrome as the best PDF reader with the Fall Creators Update for additional information.

Another alternative is Free PDF Reader - Sumatra PDF.

Pale Moon: End of services for old versions (previous milestones)

20 Oct 2017

Posted by Corrine in Social Media
From End of services for old versions (previous milestones):

Since we've been on the current milestone 27 for almost a year now, and  we can't keep supporting all versions forever, we'll be ending services  for old versions soon.

This means in practice:
  • The  internal updater will no longer offer notifications or automatic updates  to the browser if you are still on 26.* or below. Please make sure to  upgrade as soon as possible.
    After this ends, the way to upgrade will be using the installer of the latest version of Pale Moon.
  • End  of special-casing for Windows XP users. We'll be cleaning up the update  process and website to remove special information pages etc.
  • The  (ancient) Android version of Pale Moon will be removed (unpublished)  from the Play Store. The only way to still get this unsupported version  of the browser will be by side-loading the APK from the archives, if you  need it. Please note that continuing to use this very old version of  the browser bears a considerable security risk.
  • We will no longer provide blocklist updates for previous milestones.
