@watchdog

I tried your method to install uBlock in palemoon 28. However, I still have a problem.

Quote:
Copy it in the extensions folder of your palemoon's profile.


I don't know where this is but I did manage to download ublock.xpi to "Downloads". On the extentions page there is a small box with what looks like sliders on it next to "search". I clicked on this and one of the options is to "install Add-on from File". This I did but it failed with the output "This add-on could not be installed because palemoon does not support web-extensions. I had the same output when I tried before. If you can point me in the direction of my palemoons profile I'll try again using the method you outlined.

Regards,

Ken.

Thanks for the links. I had tried this method before and got the same result but I thought it was worth another go. The first output I got was "Palemoon prevented this site (github.com) from asking you to install software on your computer" I thought this was to do with how I've setup palemoon. It gave the option to "Allow". I clicked on this and saw uBlock download. This was then followed by the same output as I described in my last post i.e. "----------palemoon does not support web-extensions". I am coming to the conclusion that v 28.3.1 does not want an add blocker installed.

Regards,

Ken.

Keniv,

Watchdog appears to be correct.

The latest "Legacy" build as of today is the one he suggested in his last post.

When visiting this page, you MUST choose the "firefox-legacy-x" release to drag into your browser.

Go to the previous link posted:

https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/releases/tag/firefox-legacy-1.16.4.8

Just click on "uBlock0.firefox-legacy.xpi". Version 1.16.4.8.

@watchdog and Semme,
Thank you both for your help and patience. I now have uBlock installed. This together with the other improvements makes v28.3.1 a usable browser for me again.

Regards,

Ken.

In such cases, it may be helpful to change the default intel acceleration from sna to uxa.
To implement this potential fix, you can test the attached 20-intel.conf.
Remove the fake gz extension, place the file as /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf, then reboot.

@radky
it's not necessary any more to add this configuration file manually.
There is a xorg_intel_uxa.sh script installed by default to write the 20-intel.config file if needed.

You need not to launch this script manually because /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit contains an entry for a new boot parameter.
Following parameters are possible to launch xorg_intel_uxa.sh script on bootup:

inteluxa
intel_uxa
uxa

Thank you norgo,

Your information will be very helpful for those running Woof-CE Pups built after Feb 25, 2018.

new boot param: intel_uxa, inteluxa or uxa
