    Hello all,
    I am hoping that one of you guys can possibly help me. I have just finished setting up (Clean install) of a friends aged Samsung R60plus Laptop. (Specs attached).
    All is working well in fact it is quite snappy considering it's age.
    However I am having trouble getting a Browser installed that runs OK.
    Have tried a lot of obscure browsers Pale moon ,Maxthon.Slimbrowser etc: but the only one I can get running is K-Meleon.
    However I dont know how to configure it properly and add the Addons etc:and am unable to sign up to the forum.

    Could anyone please help me:
    a) Advise on which K-Meleon build would be best
    b) How to best configure for this system
    c)Advise on Java and Java scripts etc:

    Thanks in advance,
    Nick

    MyPal 28.14.2 (most current version) is what I use in Windows XP Professional SP3 32-bit (integrated with post-EOL security updates to May 2019).
    https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal/releases
    It should work fine in Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit or 64-bit.

    Hi again,
    Although Mypal browser working well it tends to 'hang' quite a lot although usually getting there in the end. Is this something I should expect using Vista and MyPal or can it be improved?
    (I have latitude Adbocker running by the way.)
    Nick

    PS: Cant seem to get Skype to work at all.Which version/s would be recomended for my config of SP2 and MyPal.

    Nick.
