r3dfox, modern Firefox for Windows 7!

The design is meant to be similar to how the caption bar worked on 115 ESR. The title bar is forced black stock because it's forced black or white on 10+. 8.x was the caption bar color with 115. That's what I'm going for.

So that's not "modern" :-D :-P :twisted: :wink:
No offense, thanks for your work, you are almost our only hope for a Firefox based browser on Windows 7 and 8 in the future. :thumbup:

Hi, what .mozconfig file contents do you use to build r3dfox?

I've just installed version 126 and I'm not sure to like the very narrow scrollbar, maybe I just need to get used to it.
And the new about:config is somehow strange, to me it's making things visually harder than before when I want to compare settings between browsers.

But thanks for the fast update, well done :thumbup:

You can easily undo the change by changing these back in about:config.

Yeah, I should probably make it an option, and the above an option too.

So new release (likely 126.0.1 when it releases) will have about:confignew. I wasn't able to make the scrollbar stuff an option.

Not a problem for me, I can deal with the config key values. But I'll try to get used to it for now and I'll see if it's a problem or not over time with practice.

And now I know what was my problem with the scrollbar, it was not the width but the missing arrows at the top and the bottom of the scrollbar.
But now with the new options the arrows are back even with the tiny scrollbar so everything is good for me :D

For me it's the other way round, about:config is the new one and about:confignew the classic default one :?

Do you happen to use 7 without DWM? If so, I wonder if my menu fixes also fixed that.

I must have messed that up, guess I'll correct in next release.

Oh, I didn't mess it up. about:config is technically new, however it's the classic version that has been around for ages and was replaced somewhere in 7x/8x. about:confignew is the new version that replaced it somewhere in 7x/8x.

Nope, I'm on Windows 8.1 stock.

OK I misunderstood it, I expected confignew to be your new implementation.


BTW, there are some options missing in Privacy & Security:

Firefox Relay email, Windows single sign-on and Save and fill adresses. Not that I'm using them but I wonder if it's done on purpose or not.

I think Firefox Relay is removed or disabled since it relies on an external service, but I think Librewolf should disable it too idk. Something about removing it sounds familiar idk.

Windows single sign on and authentication are likely restricted in Javascript as they likely only work on 10+. My commits add back the restrictions so broken options aren't displayed.
