    r3dfox, modern Firefox for Windows 7!


    r3dfox is release branch Firefox made to work on Windows 7/8. Also with limited compatibility for XP using OCAPI and Vista using the extended kernel.

    Main download: Releases . Eclipse-Community/r3dfox . GitHub

    Alternative download: r3dfox - Modern Firefox for Windows 7 - Browse Files at SourceForge.net

    If you run into any bugs or issues, please report it on GitHub under the issues tab. I am more likely to get to it and remember to fix it if it's there. If you don't have a GitHub account, here is fine too.

    Did I post this in the wrong place by accident? I saw the other threads like the latest Firefox versions one and thought it was correct, but I now see mark as solved and stuff. I'm new to this site and was suggested to share my browser here.

    It's working great for me. Youtube works. I was able to install 2 extensions (ubock and disable html 5 autoplay) and 1 theme. Now I need to decide which one to use permanently.

    I was able to copy over my bookmarks, history, and logins but I'm not sure if form information made it. Firefox isn't showing up when I go to import profile.

    @K4sum1 I have a job search link I use and on r3dfox it has half the results as firefox 2 days in a row. I'm not willing to discuss any more particulars on the issue publicly.

    If you can, check on a Windows 10 VM with latest Firefox 124 and r3dfox 124 to see what happens. If you don't want to VM, you should be able to run stock Firefox 124 with VxKex and maybe can check that way. Also try the 115 ESR version of Mercury-Win7 to see if it's a custom compile thing if stock Firefox 124 is fine.

    I assume this is some sort of anti scraping detection, as scrapers or bots can use useragents that make 0 sense. Considering the useragent in normal Firefox is just hard coded to report as Windows (NT) 10.0, seeing a Firefox 124 useragent with a different Windows version looks suspicious.

    With r3dfox on 7, go to about:config and make a new string named general.useragent.override with this as the content then try again.

    Could it be the profile then? We've ruled the browser itself out. Unless the useragent was messed up, it should be appearing as normal Firefox 124 on Windows 10. That leaves the browser profile.

    I checked this site: What is my user agent? - WhatIsMyBrowser.com It says:

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; rv:124.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/124.0

    Try about:profiles, make a new profile and start in it. Then try the search.
