    Thing(s) to do after upgrading to Firefox 52.0

    I had to upgrade my Firefox Browser this morning.

    Afterward,  Everything was find except LOGIN IN in JPR – A connection in NOT secure message popped up!

    I had to change my PASSWORD to a new temporarily one.

    Does anybody have the same problem?  Or, am I to assume that the problem is with JPR by not providing a Secure Connection?

    Please let me know what you think …

    1. No problem with Safari.

      6. Are you referring to Safari, the "Diet 7-UP" browser for the sophisticated user?

    2. Firefox has really turned to shit the last couple of years.

    I got rid of it.

      5. I hear you …

      But when it comes to browsing the Internet in different languages and being able to switch between each one of them when you need it is still one of the best features from Firefox.

      Just saying …

    3. It's technically correct

    Firefox (and I believe Chrome too) now warn if you’re entering a password over an HTTP connection instead of HTTPS.  Eventually they’re going to start doing it for all HTTP pages.  It’s a reaction mostly to government spying but also hackers.  I personally wouldn’t worry about it too much on JPR (definitely worry if you see it on a banking site), but if you want to be more secure and eliminate the warning at the same time, just put https:// in front of the URL in your address bar.  JPR does support HTTPS, it just doesn’t automatically redirect you like a lot of sites do.  (I personally hate auto-redirection but it’s definitely more convenient for the average user.)

      4. Thanks for pointing that out…………..HTTP:// => HTTPS:// – worked great!

      Again thank you, I should have read Firefox Help Guide.

    8. Version 52?

    I just can’t understand why people use such a buggy browser.

      9. Check out reply #5 for a good reason

      On Ubuntu Linux, the Firefox browser works like a charm;  I will never go back to Explorer – ever!

        10. I haven't used Explorer in years

        I use Maxthon. I have been using it since the late 90’s. Maxthon is on version five. Microsoft even copied verssion 2 and called it Explorer 7 Pro. It has both Webkit and Trident browser engines. It works out of the box, no addons required. All the features are already there.

          12. This is the first time I hear about Maxthon Browser …

          But then I also didn’t know about Webkit and Trident, so I checked that out:

          Trident

          Popular Browsers & Applications: Internet Explorer, Avant Browser, Maxathon, Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, AOL Browser
          License: Closed-Source
          Acid2 Compatible: Yes ( In version VI included in Internet Explorer 8 )
          Acid3 Compatible: No
          Operating Systems: Windows
          Major Contributors: Microsoft
          Share: Prior to 2004, 95% of browsers on the Internet, now approx 70%.
          First Released: April 1997
          First released with Internet Explorer 4.0 and still in use today, Trident was designed as a software component to allow software developers to easily (and freely) add web browsing functionality to their own Windows applications. The overwhelming majority of third party developers that integrate web browsing into their software use the Trident engine (mshtml.dll) such as Avant Browser and Maxathon as well as programs such as AOL Instant Messenger, Google Talk, Valve Steam, Pandion and many others.

          However, a few notable Microsoft products no longer use Trident as their rendering engine, which may be an indication Microsoft is developing a replacement for the now 11 year old engine. Expression Web uses its own engine which Microsoft claims is the most standards-compliant on the market today. Internet Explorer Mobile also does not use Trident, but a engine custom developed for the Windows Mobile platform.

          Internet Explorer 5 for Mac did not use the Trident engine, but a custom engine known as Tasman, although previous versions of Internet Explorer for Mac did use Trident. Development of Internet Explorer for Mac was halted in roughly 2003, but development of Tasman continued to a limited extent, and was later included in Office 2004 for Mac in their Entourage product.

          It had been rumored that Tasman would replace Trident in Internet Explorer 7, but as of the Internet Explorer 8 beta, Trident is still Microsoft’s engine of choice.

          Gecko

          Popular Browsers & Applications: Firefox, Camino, Flock, Thunderbird, Seamonkey, Epiphany, NVU, Netscape, K-Meleon
          License: Open-Source
          Acid2 Compatible: Yes
          Acid3 Compatible: No
          Operating Systems: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux/BSD
          Major Contributors: Mozilla Corporation, Netscape (originally)
          Share: Approx 20%
          First Released: December 1998
          Development of the Gecko layout engine began at Netscape in 1997. The original Netscape rendering engine was considered to be slow and not compliant with W3C standards, compared to the one used in Microsoft Internet Explorer at the time. Ironically, today these are two complaints now typically directed at the Trident engine used by Internet Explorer. First called Raptor, this name was changed to NGLayout due to trademark issues. Netscape later changed the name to Gecko. In July 2003, AOL (which had purchased Netscape in 1998) spun off development of the Gecko engine to the Mozilla Foundation.

          Because Gecko (and the popular Firefox browser that drives it’s development) are open source, other companies use it to develop their own browsers and applications. Gecko is now seen by some developers as a superior alternative to the Trident engine because it is cross platform and also lacks many of the security vulnerabilities of the more popular Trident engine.

          WebKit

          Popular Browsers & Applications: Safari, Chrome, Adobe AIR, iCab, Epiphany (experimental), Konqueror (KHTML)
          License: Open-Source
          Acid2 Compatible: Yes
          Acid3 Compatible: Yes
          Operating Systems: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux/BSD
          Major Contributors: WebKit Foundation, Apple, Nokia, Adobe, Google, KDE Team (originally)
          Share: Approx 7%
          First Released: January 2003 (forked from KHTML, which was first released in October 2000)
          The first applications based on KHTML were released in October 2000 by the KDE team, around their Konqueror file and web browser. WebKit was forked from the Konqueror browser’s KHTML library, by Apple, Inc., for use as the engine of Safari web browser.

          Google’s recently released Chrome browser, along with the upcoming Android mobile phone platform, also use WebKit as their browser engine. WebKit is used on the iPhone and iPod touch to render content within the device’s web browser and email software. Adobe also uses the WebKit engine to render HTML & javascript inside of Adobe AIR applications. The team behind the browser Epiphany announced in April 2008 that it will use WebKit exclusively, and stop using the Gecko layout engine. Epiphany is a web browser for the GNOME desktop used by Linux.

          Finally, I realized I was more familiar with Gecko than the others mainly because of its connection to the Netscape Browser – the first alternative to MS Explorer in 90s.

          Anyhow, thanks for the suggestion!

            14. Maxthon has an icon at the end of the address bar

            to switch between the two. Lightning mode for webkit and retro mode for sites looking for IE. You can switch on the fly if you need IE compatability. It has reader mode which displays only text. Ad Block Plus is built in. It has a developer mode to examine the code on a page, a video downloader and a password manager as well. Version 4.9 has a problem with videos from Twitter but 5.0 handles it fine and I can use either at any time. I can sign into a Maxthon browser on any computer and all my settings and bookmarks are there. They also have the lightweight browser Nitro for those who don’t need all those features.

              15. Can't install it on Ubuntu 16.10; something about libgcrypt11!

              However, I have an earlier Ubuntu 14.10 installation still working, so I may try there again when I get around it – I let you know what I have found!

              Thanks anyway …

                16. From the support forum

                at the moment, Maxthon for linux is not updated. You may try this workaround : Maxthon 4.9 in Linux with Wine

                http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/bug-tracker/general-support/can-not-install-maxthon-in-ubuntu-1604-r123/

                Some are reporting success on 14 and it sounds like they are working on it.

                  17. Got it installed on Ubuntu 14.10………thanks for the suggestion!

                  I am currently using it on a Laptop where I am going to use it from now on – coming to JPR is a breeze now!

                  Again thank you …

                    18. All you need now is a JPR icon

                    lower right corner of each icon to edit

                    19. Hi, there!

                    I have begun to explore the Maxthon Browser, but already I am stocked and lost without my Menu Bar and a Session Manager.

                    This is a screen-shot of what I would like to have installed basically!

                    Still, I have managed to add a Google Translator quite easily I must say.

                    So, it sure feels like Chrome Browser, so I try to get Netflix going on Maxthon hoping to get the full HD experience.

                    Oh yeah, I got that JPR Icon going too, inspite of not knowing how to add more pages.

                    Other than that it’s been fun and interesting!

                    Again thanks for your input or any suggesting you may have …
