Differences between KM 76 Gecko and Goanna

I start the list of diffs found in 2 builds for now.

1) Goanna is really web-compatible almost as Gecko 52 not 38

2) Twitter videos (fragmented) do work in Goanna not in Gecko

3) Twitch.tv works fine in Goanna

4) KM 7x Gecko doesn't handle the pref browser.visited.color (as well as ignores Colors from about:рreferences/Content)
I was unable to change this color any way: not by pref, not by usercss.

Goanna allows do that.

Things still non-working in both branches:

1) web.skype.com asks to update browser (with any UA tested by me) to work with.

2) web.whatsapp.com doesn't allow to paste images copied in our browser into message field.
Though it pastes images copied in Firefox well

Well I tried with 'skype login'. No luck.

Win 7.

Basilisk-xpmod works fine for example.

Changing the display style of the links before and after visiting, like many other custom design options are fully working in original K-Meleon builds and new guanna. The difference is that it is necessary to set it in usercss.css. It is important to specify: !important (to override).

As example:
a:active, a:visited{color:#800080 !important}

Copy and repaste has always been problematic on some pages.




roytam1's test version http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?19,143253 - is my current fad.

Dimly remember that Mozilla did not WANT this anymore, because it was bad for privacy or such. Just in case, you checked those prefs?

No, this is not the case.

The subject task isn't to simply make visited links alt-colored (this works already), but to change this alternative color from default purple to smth else...

This may not be meaningful, but I just got signed up for Skype web beta using KM76RC2 with the K-Meleon user agent. Was first told to update browser when using FF compatible agent. Win 10 OS. Perhaps if they simply don't know who/what you are, then you just get a pass.

This is the code that I have in my user defined style sheet. It works for me. Had it there forever.
/* --  Links that have been visited are DeepPink  -- */
a:visited { color: DeepPink !important; } 
 
/* --  Links that need javascript are green  -- */
a[href^="javascript:"] { color: SandyBrown !important; font-weight: bold !important; }

Note: I don't remember why SandyBrown becomes green.
