Hello Moonchild guys ;)
Today i noticed that TUMBLR Login with E-Mail address does no longer work:
https://www.tumblr.com/

Is there a way to troubleshoot this issue, or at least identify the root cause of the inability to Login?
Many thanks in advance for your patience and taking a look into it.

Did you follow the instructions in red text up in the pinkish box? I see no mention that you did.

idk if it would be appropriate for me to post this here but the problem seems to extend far beyond logging in by email. the whole site is no longer working correctly as of today. the "dashboard" (timeline) is supposed to infinitely scroll, like so many other websites now, but seems to stop after about four posts. can't reblog, can't make new posts, can't click anything. even the ads refuse to load. to be fair, tumblr has had a big warning box about using an unsupported browser for probably a year now, but i just blocked it out with ublock origin and tumblr isn't known for having the best code on the internet lol.
restarted in safe mode, same result.
here's all error console output:

Code: Select all

Timestamp: 7/16/2021 7:13:34 PM

Sorry, i haven't noticed the red text, i'd like to apologize.
Here is the output from the Console:

Sorry for bothering again, but is there any chance that this error in the Tumblr Login-form is fixable?
Or is it unlikely fixable? I am just curious, because i really need Tumblr for working purpose. Thanks

I also cannot login to tumblr.com on Pale Moon. I don't get any error messages, just a reload of the screen requesting my login email. It never gets to the enter pw screen. Works OK in Edge. I have noticed that on tumblr blogs that don't require a login, it tells me my browser is too old. I've asked tumblr to look at the issue.

Not sure what this means "SyntaxError: invalid identity escape in regular expression"

It means that Tumblr Keyboard Warriors will not be able to use the site until Tumblr properly accounts for our current regex capabilities or we become successful at our currently stalled progress at enhancing said regex capabilities through bounty or sudden magical insight.

We are aware of it though. Thank you. Though, I wish you guys had properly followed the instructions despite getting the answer.

Before i was logged out from Tumblr (was previously logged-in on older Cookies i guess),
i also noticed that the deleting of a Blog Post on Tumblr does no longer work, when clicking the garbage can symbol.

I really doubt the world (or Google) will adapt to Pale Moon.

Could it make sense to ask Mr. Graydon Hoare for help, for whatever reason has stalled your progress?
He is very knowledgeable and has lots of expertise in the field of Rust, Mozilla code, Browsers generally, compiling etc.
Perhaps he is able to fix it, he seems to be very friendly and helpful, please try reaching out to him: {{scrubbed}} or else {{scrubbed}}

And if he really isn't able to provide a solution for your stalled progress, i am 99% sure, he knows at least who exactly are the individuals with the best chance to fix it ASAP. Ask him please.

We know exactly what the problem is, it's just the implementation of it that has been stalled since Google's irregex implementation is the only implementation in use (on the planet!) for this regular expression "feature", and this means we'd somehow have to adapt foreign Google V8 code to our tree which is proving problematic. It's effectively a Google-only extension to regular expressions in the browser world. of course Google used its influence to push it into an ES standard so that justifies them having it "officially" but that doesn't change the core of the matter. Classic embrace-extend-extinguish.

Someone versed in Rust and having general build/compile expertise won't be able to help as this is deep in SpiderMonkey.

Okay kids, time to see reality here. If it worked before without any additional new features being in the browser or provided by the service and they change something and now it doesn't work but there are still no actual new features. That means the decision was arbitrary either on their part or the lib they are using's part.

Change for change sake is not a justification in and of its self and just because everything is a mono-culture of Chrome (plus controlled and funded opposition) doesn't make it proper. 20 years ago people were so pissed at Microsoft for this kind if not exact shit with Internet Explorer that the federal government had to step in. Today you are saying that hope is lost unless we continue to mutate and abuse our technology to match theirs. No sir. I would say go cry about it on Tumblr but wellllll..

Exactly this is the problem with these kinds of sudden breakages.
Was there a significant change to Tumblr or its login requirements that made it necessary to use this Chrome-only "feature"? I don't think so. So why make this change that breaks compatibility?

My bet is on a library rather than the site itself.
Considering how there are widespread breakages all over the place, in sort-of unrelated websites, it's the most likely cause.
The question is which library it is and also if we can report this as a bug and see if they can make do without or work around it somehow.

Or do the most basic in feature, error, backwards compatibility testing and have a fallback. Which is the responsibility of a web developer or webmaster. Regardless of jslibs.

I find this morbidly interesting, since when dealing with Google and REGEX from my end as a web developer Google gets all hot and bothered when you stray from their conveniently limited REGEX.

Of course they would! Because then the tables would be turned and they would be in the situation we are put in now.
But if we ask web developers the same thing they push for, as in "please don't go outside of our implemented specification" then we get a cold shoulder from most.

As an aside: that's almost certainly also the reason why "as a policy" Chrome devs generally do not change implementations once they have been made without a TON of pushing, if ever, even if their implementation is objectively incorrect. Regularly these things are left incompatible, sometimes for years, until web devs get tired of it and give their vote to please unify it in one solution, which is the vote Google needs to push their implementation as "the one". and Chrome devs can just lean back and say "everyone else needs to do it our way now, officially."

What i tried to say is, that at this pace of 'progress' and dozens of additional websites incompatibilities (most of them unnoticed) arising day by day, sooner or later the Palemoon Homepage will be the only working website which one can browse.
That might be OK for a Palemoon fanatic like you, but for most other average Palemoon users it will not suffice. Come on now, lets get real !
Yeah you are right, website developers may be retarded, lazy, reckless and ignorant folks for using Google's Webkit crap or anything made from the greedy, evil and troublemaking hooknose-tribe.
But guess what? 99.9% of the freaking world is comprised of retarded, lazy, reckless and ignorant f*ckers. And they just don't care about anything, meaning Google is likely to win this battle, whether we like it or not.
(and btw, personally i hate it !!)

I am no coder or developer, but i never understood why its not possible to adopt a newer Mozilla Firefox Code.
Is Mozilla Firefox Code now based on Chrome too, and if so, since which version exactly?

And don't wait for your ZOG Uncle Sam government to step in against Alphabet/Google .. before that happens, Google will probably have BOUGHT and OWN your entire clown government.

It's not possible unless we would -become- Firefox and lose all the things that make pale Moon desirable by its users like, you know, customisability. Current Firefox code can only be used with the Firefox application or something extremely close to it. If we were to adopt newer Mozilla Firefox code we'd have to throw everything out and start from scratch.

In increasingly amounts, yes. They aren't based on Chrome but more and more modules of Chrome have been used over the years. We jokingly regularly call it "MozGlue" because of that, as most of the original code is being replaced with Google and other external libraries to be glued together. A very gradual process unseen by users but no less real and very obvious for those of us who are in fact up close and personal with the code.
Even things like compiler compatibility play in here. Guess what compiler Mozilla is using now for all platforms (hint it's not gcc or MSVC)? ... What compiler does Chrome use?

Get real?... Well let's get real, shall we. Go read: viewtopic.php?f=62&t=27175

In the meanwhile I'm continuing to work on making this V8 code build for us so we should be able to make progress on a whole bunch of bounty-labelled issues once that happens. Of course since it's just little old me trying to adapt foreign code to our core, that's slow going.
