Your instructions above say "Launch Start Tor Browser.exe and answer a few quick questions about your connection". Those instructions are misleading and confusing. I was stumped for a while until I realized the "Start Tor Browser" file is a shortcut, NOT an executable. Please correct the instructions by removing the text ".exe".

Version 4.5.2 available.

smaragdus on 2015-09-05 03:36

I needed to connect to an onion site and downloaded the latest version (5.0.2) but Australis makes Tor Browser absolutely terrible and unusable- I do not want to install heaps of add-ons just to restore features the Mozilla idiots removed. I had an earlier version of Tor Browser (3.6.0- before the advent of the abominable Australis) but the perpetual blinking of the Tor button urging for update is unbearable and cannot be disabled. It can be removed from the tool-bar but this way one cannot acquire new identities.

Password Security Scanner v1.42 Updated

  • 228KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 2 Sep 2017

Password Security Scanner audits security information about stored passwords without displaying the password itself. Includes the total number of characters: numeric, lowercase/uppercase and repeating, as well as a rating of overall password strength. Can help determine whether the passwords used by other users are secured enough, without knowing or watching their actual passwords. Great for administrators concerned about security concerns caused by their users.

Currently scans the passwords of Internet Explorer 4.0 - 11.0, Mozilla Firefox (all versions), Google Chrome, Chromium, Dialup/VPN passwords, MSN/Windows Messenger, Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, SeaMonkey, Opera (version 15 or greater), Vivaldi and Yandex Web browsers.

  • 'Save All Items'.
  • 'Quick Filter' feature (View -> Use Quick Filter or Ctrl+Q). When it's turned on, you can type a string in the text-box added under the toolbar and Password Security Scanner will instantly filter the passwords list, showing only lines that contain the string you typed.

All programs that claim to do password auditing should work this way. Admins don't need to know the actual password, just if its complex enough.

@Midas
You might like to re-check EagleGet's portable status. I had an email conversation with the devs a few versions ago about writing to the registry etc., and as far as I can tell they have acted upon it. On my system, a registry search for "eagle" produces no hits, regardless of the status of auto-update check in EagleGet|Configurations. Older versions also put the file EagleGet.sys in the System32 folder, but that behaviour also seems to have been corrected.
Hope this helps.

@Midas - sorry if I mistakenly tagged you. Perhaps I should have tagged @Checker ?

Midas on 2015-08-26 13:39

@jessharpur: thanks. No problem as comments are public -- but such details are usually debated at the forum, where they get more attention (follow double-balloon icon, second to last from the entry's header).

I just noticed that when FF Portable is closed it leaves behind a folder in AppData :
C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Pending Pings

Using v55 btw.

If I delete the Mozilla folder in AppData, run and immediately close FF Portable, that folder is left behind.

CornHolio the Gringo on 2017-08-19 00:47

@gbrao: Try using Firefox Portable from portableapps.com instead.

As of Firefox 49, Firefox requires SSE2 just like Pale Moon. Thus, there are no longer differences in system requirements between Firefox and Pale Moon. I dropped all the text about Pale Moon's system requirements.

Hawk on 2017-01-17 18:41

Sadly the latest versions no longer support WinXP.
