FoxE9 is an Internet Explorer 9 skin for Firefox. Default theme must be enabled for full functionality.

This is our first beta so feedback would be appreciated. Firefox 10+ supported.

Nice :)

Shame the URL bar doesn't auto expand when you go to type in it/click it. Actually not sure if IE9 even does this, but it would be good lol.

Great, good to hear.

I don't think IE9 does that either, but you can resize the urlbar by hovering between the urlbar and the tabs.

I'll stick to the last version of Stratiform that includes IE9esque, though. It lets me take the best of both worlds without enforcing either.

That's awesome! Any chance you could include the option to change the colour of the back/forward buttons and also if to add the Firefox app button to the top of the window?

Bug, will include in next version.

The buttons are images so we could give them a nice transition on hover, maybe in a future version we can include some options. You can remove our custom menu button (the cog) and it will return the Firefox menu to the top of the window, there are a few bugs though.

Excellent job. It's an almost perfect copy of the IE 9 UI; the only minor difference I can spot is are a few pixels toolbar height (see screenshot - FoxE9 on the left, IE 9 on the right). It's well enough done to trick Joe Users into running Firefox - install FoxE9, change the app icon, voila. :shifty:

Isn't IE9 on the left and Firefox on the right? IE 9 is smaller for me :dizzy:

This theme makes me want to go back go Firefox full time <3

Strange tab scroll arrows appearing and new tab tab being stuck next to the home button. New profile fixed! Not an addon issue, reinstalled all the same everything. Please scale the buttons to IE9, they are alot smaller and make clicking things like the bookmarks button difficult for us with poor eyesight.

Internet Download Manager extension causes the tab scroll arrows to appear. It is reproducible for me every time I enable the IDM CC extension and disappears after disabling.

Well ever since I removed this add-on, and went back to Stratiform, I can't get Firefox to place the tabs back on the titlebar. :angry: It works fine when it's maximized, but when maximized, the tabs go on the line below the Firefox button.

Top image is Ff, bottom is IE9.

IE9 scales with DPI settings, we have static images so they currently do not scale.

Can you check the preference 'browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar'? It should be set to true, once you uninstall FoxE9 it should restore all the settings to the way they were before you installed.

Wow, looks like IE9, if someone show me only browser without options or something then I will say it is IE lol, awesome :)

I've question, maybe there is possibility to use only piece of code to move tabs in same row with urlbar, without changing buttons, appbutton etc?

Everyone be careful if you have an elaborate customization set up in firefox before using it. This thing will screw it all up, and WILL NOT restore anything to what it was previously when you remove it.

This is nice, but for some reason it didn't want to remember my "previous session" when i using it, just opens firefox with a blank page.

Didn't have any problem with uninstaling and with restore all my customizations...

      Mozilla launches Firefox 81 with new Alpenglow theme
      by Paul Hill



      Mozilla has announced the availability of Firefox 81. The new update comes with a raft of new features including audio and video control from your keyboard or headset, a new browser theme called Alpenglow, and credit card autofill in the U.S. and Canada.

      With the ability to pause and play audio and video in Firefox from your keyboard or headset, you’ll now be able to better control your browser media even when you’re in another Firefox tab, in another program, or when you’re computer is locked. Check out the support page to get more information on the ins and outs of the new tool.

      Another nifty feature in Firefox 81 is AcroForm support, which will allow you to fill in, print, and save supported PDF forms. To accompany this, Mozilla has also given the PDF viewer a fresh new look.

      With the launch of Firefox 77 in June, Mozilla brought Pocket integration to its browser for users situated in the U.K. With today’s update, users in Austria, Belgium, and Switzerland using the German version of Firefox will now see Pocket recommendations on the new tab page.

      Avid shoppers in the United States and Canada will benefit from the ability to save, manage, and autofill credit and debit card information while shopping online. If you can’t see this option just yet, hold on a little while longer while Mozilla completes the rollout. Hopefully, this won’t take too long to arrive for other users around the world.

      Finally, Mozilla has added a purple-pinkish theme to its browser. The new theme is dubbed Alpenglow and gives users another theme option aside from Default, Light, and Dark.

      If you’re already using Firefox, you'll receive the update automatically in the coming days. You can also press the menu button, go to Help, and then About Firefox to apply the update manually. Linux users will need to wait until their distribution's repositories have been updated. If you don’t use Firefox at all, you can download it from Mozilla’s website.

      Mozilla is abandoning Firefox Send over malware and spear phishing abuses
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Mozilla launched Firefox Send in March 2019 as a tool for uploading large files to its servers and sharing the download link with contacts, all in an encrypted environment. However, Send was abused by bad actors to spread malware and launch spear phishing attacks, leading to the service's suspension this summer when Mozilla began investigating the matter.

      Today, Mozilla announced that it won't relaunch Send and, instead, will shut it down for good. The company described the service as "a promising tool for encrypted file sharing", which already "garnered good reach, a loyal audience, and real signs of value throughout its life." Send won't have any major status change since it's already offline.

      In addition, Firefox Notes will be shut down in early November. It was launched two years ago as a straightforward note-taking app on Android with end-to-end encryption to keep notes safe. That said, its desktop browser extension will stay in place if you've already installed it. Also, you will be able to export your notes.

      These legacy services are part of Mozilla's Firefox Test Pilot program. The decision comes as the company is restructuring its organization and shifting its focus to "new product development and go to market activities". It announced the restructuring last month along with the layoff of some 250 employees.

      Basilisk 2020.09.11
      by Razvan Serea



      Basilisk is a free and Open Source XUL-based web browser created by the developers of the Pale Moon browser. It is based on the Goanna layout and rendering engine (a fork of Gecko) and builds on the Unified XUL Platform (UXP), which in turn is a fork of the Mozilla code base without Servo or Rust.

      Basilisk as an application is primarily a vessel for development of the XUL platform it builds upon, and additionally a potential replacement for Firefox to retain the use of Firefox Extensions. It aims to retain useful technologies that its sibling Firefox has removed.

      Requires Windows 7 or later. Windows XP or Windows Vista are not supported.

      Main features:

      Full support for JavaScript's ECMAscript 6 standard for modern web browsing. Support for all NPAPI plugins (Unity, Silverlight, Flash, Java, authentication plugins, etc.). Support for XUL/Overlay Mozilla-style extensions. Experimental support for WebExtensions (in gecko-target mode). Please note that some Mozilla-specific WebExtension APIs are not yet available. Support for ALSA on Linux. Support for WebAssembly (WASM). Support for advanced Graphite font shaping features. Support for modern web cryptography: up to TLS 1.3, modern ciphers, HSTS, etc. Important differences with Mozilla Firefox:

      Uses Goanna as a layout and rendering engine. Goanna behaves slightly differently than Gecko in certain respects and may result in different display of web pages. e.g.: Goanna renders gradients in a more accurate color space (non-premultiplied). Builds on UXP, our XUL platform in development. As such XUL is alive and well in this browser and will not be deprecated. Has some long-standing known issues with the Mozilla code-base fixed (e.g. CVE-2009-1232). Does not use Rust or the Photon user interface. You can expect a familiar interface as-carried by Firefox between v29 and v56. Does not use Electrolysis (e10s, multi-process browsing). Does not require walled-garden extension signing. Basilisk 2020.09.11 changelog:

      Updated JavaScript module loading in accordance with the spec for web compatibility. Disabled a function related to WebComponents to prevent mis-detection. Improved compatibility with websites that try to style standard form elements. Updated the SQLite library to 3.33.0. Changed media errors to be a more generic response, improving user privacy. Improved code stability (fixed a number of crashes). Updated the NSS library for various connection security fixes. Security issues addressed in this release: CVE-2020-15664, CVE-2020-15666, CVE-2020-15667, CVE-2020-15668 and CVE-2020-15669. Unified XUL Platform Mozilla Security Patch Summary: 4 fixed, 1 defense-in-depth, 1 rejected, 9 not applicable. Download: Basilisk 2020.09.11 (32-bit) | Portable | ~50.0 MB (Open Source)
