IMVU not working anymore

Unread post by pm4eva » 2023-09-20, 14:20

Hi, IMVU seems changed to much now and PM not works anymore.
You can login on www.imvu.com but after it change to imvu.com/next and nothing happens anymore.
Also faking UserAgentString does not help anymore.
Guess somthing is missing in the browser.
Can you pls check it out?
thx and greets

This shows some webgl and wasm errors.

Code: Select all

Warning: Error: WebGL: Failed to create WebGL context: WebGL creation failed: 
* Error during ANGLE OpenGL init.
* Error during ANGLE OpenGL init.

Pale Moon does not support the "c0" wasm opcode, which is part of the sign extension opcodes:
// Sign extension
I32Extend8S = 0xc0,
I32Extend16S = 0xc1,
I64Extend8S = 0xc2,
I64Extend16S = 0xc3,
I64Extend32S = 0xc4,

The same c0 error:

These opcodes were added in this bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1389461

As to webgl, these settings seem to fix the problem, but the site still does not work due to wasm.
webgl.disable-angle = true
webgl.force-enabled = true

Ugh, so it was a spec update that came in logrolled with a different proposal; no wonder that went under the radar.
I'll file an issue for it.

I applied the Mozilla patch that implemented the missing opcodes, but I can't figure out how to login to IMVU to test it.

It keeps trying to make me download the mobile app.... oh wait it only allows creating an account via the app? What the heck?

No it makes me try to login, and when I do it sends me to the mobile app download.

I had to create an account with a different login method and I was able to login.... appears to be working with the patch applied. I made a pull request.

IMVU is very special

The best thing is if u downlad the Classic Client atm 545.0, 545.2 or 545.4 here
https://imvu.com/download.php
The Client don't need Admin Rights for get installed. It runs in your user folder.

If you have created an account (use Firefox for it) u can start the client (Windows or Mac)
If u login in the Client u can click on Top on your Nickname and if PM is your Main Browser u will see the Classic IMVU site.
This still works.

But they have also a new site (more modern) at https://imvu.com/next/
And this site is now broken and it seems it is used for browser only login.
This thing now only works with firefox.

I hope u can fix that in the next PM Version. TY
thx and greets

p.s.

For creating a new account u can use the Android App too i guess
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... ilecordova

If it ask u at first start for some rights just decline all. It should work without any rights.
thx and greets

You do realise that this is a known security hazard, right? :)
In other words: that's not a good feature.

Yes i know its not optimal to run EXE from UserFolder.
But with limited User rights and UAC maybe not that dangerous

----------------------------------------------------------------

The new PaleMoon 32.4.1 from today works now!
The only Thing what still sux is that it shows the IMVU.COM/NEXT site in kinda Mobile Phone view.

BUT
I changed the useragent with
general.useragent.override.imvu.com
to
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; rv:115.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/115.0

AND now all is perfect and i also tested the LOGIN only in the Browser and also switch to Classic Site is ok.
All is working TY very much.
thx and greets
