Pale Moon can be a opensource, Goanna-based web-browser designed for Microsoft Windows and Linux (together with other systems in evolution ), concentrating on efficacy and customization. Be certain you get the absolute most from the own browser!
Pale Moon supplies you with an browsing experience at a browser completely assembled out of a unique, individually developed resource that’s been forked from Firefox/Mozilla code a range of years back, with carefully chosen attributes and optimizations to boost your browser’s equilibrium and user experience, while still providing complete customization and a developing number of themes and extensions to create the browser your very own. It intends to supply close adherence to official standards and standards in its own execution (with nominal compromise), also intentionally excludes quite a few qualities to hit a balance between overall usage, performance, and technological advancements online.
With the present generation of browsers that are mainstream, there’s far more obvious and maybe not simply”underneath the hood” differences: Pale Moon will last to provide booted navigation buttons using a nice size, a bookmarks tool bar which can be permitted by defaulttabs beside page material from default (readily siphoned ) and maybe not at the smallest amount of a usable status pub along with more freedom from customization, to list a couple matters.
Pale Moon can be, and will be, free to download and use!
This browser has been released as an area endeavor to target to get open, collaborative creation of a full-featured web-browser, just as far designed by the consumer as it’s by our development crew. It’s published”Asis” and at the expectation it will be helpful for its own users. Therefore, we can’t supply any warranty of any sort, nor guarantee fitness for any specific purpose or work flow.

What's new in this version:


- Updated NSS to 3.38, removed TLS 1.3 draft version check since it's considered final


- Reinstated RC4 as an optional encryption cypher for non-standard environments (e.g. old routing/peripheral networked hardware on LAN). RC4 and 3DES are marked weak and disabled, and will never be used in the first handshake with a site, only as last-ditch fallback when specifically enabled (meaning they won't show up on ssllabs' test, for example)


- Removed Telemetry accumulation calls, automatic timers and stopwatches. This removes a very noticeable performance sink for all operations on all platforms - Fixed many occurrences of discouraged types of memory access for primarily GCC 8 compatibility. This improves overall code security as a defense-in-depth measure


- Re-implemented the pref-controlled custom background color for standalone images


- Updated session history handling for internal pages. about:logopage is no longer stored in history, and you can choose to store the QuickDial page in history by setting the pref browser.newtabpage.add_to_session_history to true. This is disabled by default (meaning you can't use the "Back" button to go back to the QuickDial page) as a defense-in-depth security measure


- Added ui.menu.allow_content_scroll to control whether content can be scrolled if a context menu is open


- Fixed incorrect code removal in ipc


- Removed support for TLS session caches in TLSServerSocket


- Added support for local-ref as SVG xlink:href values


- Changed the find bar to be a browser-global toolbar again (like in Pale Moon 27) instead of per-tab. For people who prefer search terms to be saved on a per-tab basis (like with the per-tab findbar previously), this is possible by setting findbar.termPerTab to true. This resolves a number of issues, including styling with lightweight themes not applying to the find bar, and status pop-ups overlapping the find bar


- Ported all relevant security fixes from Mozilla's Gecko/62 release, including CVE-2018-12377 and CVE-2018-12379


- Restored part of the searchplugin API that was removed by Mozilla, so extensions can provide and save edits to installed search engines


- Improved the speed of restoring browsing sessions upon startup


- Fixed the "Restore previous session" button sometimes being missing from about:home, while a restorable session would be present


- Fixed tab previews in the Windows taskbar (if enabled)


- Fixed the setting of the new tab page being "My Home Page" so it'll pick up subsequent changes to the home page URL automatically


- Removed the Firefox Accounts migrator from Sync


- Fixed an issue with the enabled state of number controls if appearances changed


- Stopped building ffvpx on 32-bit platforms (except windows) to use the (faster) system-installed lib instead


- Re-added a horizontal scroll action option for mouse wheel. (regression


- Fixed handling of content language if the locale is changed


- Fixed document navigation with the F6 key


- Fixed toolbar styling in toolkit themes


- Fixed viewing the source of a selection

  • 28.0.1

    This is a Windows-only update to address some stability/performance issues that have popped up with the new milestone release on especially 32-bit systems - The cause seems to be a compiler bug in Visual Studio 2015 with certain optimizations. Although 64-bit does not seem to be directly affected, we are still applying more cautious optimizations there too from this point forward until we can figure out exactly what the cause is and which (more aggressive) optimizations are safe to use
