On Youtube, it seems I can't read the user-comments to video-clips any more. Probably the same problem.


If I remember rightly, Firefox 3 runs well in Classic Pup. Some later versions of Firefox may as well but I can't vouch for them.

I had my problems with Aurora 6 too - sometimes it would display a big fuzzy patch of mixed colours instead of a graphic on a page.

Firefox is at version 30.0 at the moment. So I doubt, that version 3 is still usable for newer web-content. Does "soundcloud.com" work with it, for example?
I'd really like to see Firefox 30 on Puppy 2.14X' glibc or something in that direction. If it is possible. Please.


If you want Firefox 30 (and I can't promise this will work) I'd say your best bet is to install wine and then Firefox 30 for Windows. I got Firefox 28 to work in Legacy OS2 (which is based on Puppy 2.14).

If Firefox 3 isn't adequate (and I believe Mike says it is) another possible option is to try one of the Google Chrome files from Sully Sat's 2.14X page. He's got a great repository of files which work well in that one;

If soundcloud want to use obscure methods for handling sound and the internet then why not do as you are told and get a new computer with the latest system and appropriate software.

Otherwise look out for sites that use more standard methods where you can simply use the system you are happy with?

Shocked WHAT??? That's amazing! I didn't even try that, because I'd never have expected it to work. But it does. Behold the power of Puppy 2.14X! And thank you very much for the hint. Everything's working fine now. Makes me happy. Razz

Well ttuuxxx did update glibc and gtk and added the dbus libs so newer firefoxes would work. And latest firefoxes have slacked off on their glibc requirements fortunately....so enjoy. all this on a 2.6.18 kernel take note Very Happy

Yeah, ttuuxxx did an amazing job with this one. Just to prove it, I'm posting this from Classic Pup (Top 10) and Firefox 30, and gkrellm shows just 134 MB in use.
