Pale Moon Commander

Postby Moonchild » Wed Mar 06, 2013 9:06 am

A first release of Pale Moon Commander, the advanced preferences configurator for Pale Moon, has been released to AMO.

This is a first core release (0.5) and no documentation has been written yet, so please be careful using the add-on as any changes made with it are permanent.
You can find the add-on here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pale-moon-commander/

Documentation is in the works, and it's been added to the Pale Moon website now (Download -> Pale Moon Commander)
EDIT: I've decided to change the license to a freeware license.

Update: The add-on has been updated to 0.6 after adding a number of features and reorganizing the layout slightly.
A full review has been requested (it seems to share the queue with preliminary reviews? in any case there's a queue of 60 add-ons for review at AMO... this might take a few weeks :!: ), and it's available on the palemoon.org site directly as well: http://www.palemoon.org/commander.shtml

I'll see about creating proper documentation for it soon. In the meantime, Softpedia has picked the add-on up as a tweak tool listing (unsuspected!) and it can be found here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Brow ... nder.shtml

They also seem to be a lot faster in evaluating the add-on over there as it's been reviewed and given the 100% clean certification, as well as an editor's writeup. In the meantime: AMO has the add-on in the queue 6 spaces up after 2 days (Queue Position: 54 of 63) ... so.. maybe in 3 weeks or a month, this version will have been reviewed? :lol:

Hi Moonchild, I'v been using Pale Moon (Portable version) for a long time now and I love it, congratz for your awesome work there.

I stumbled upon this addon today, and as a geek, I obviously loved it :]

I'm used to change/tweak via about:config some of PM/FF internals and I'm here to submit one (maybe more later) to be made accessible thru your addon :
(Needles to say that Pale Moon being performance oriented, my current suggestion and futures ones are related to performance and responsiveness enhancement)


nglayout.initialpaint.delay = 150 (default)
Delay in ms before the page start to be drawn, to let more content (like images/css) to be loaded before the 1st draw, content loaded later will trigger a redraw of the HTML and cause more CPU cycles. If all content is loaded the page is drawn immediately.

A tricky value to tweak, but I like to have it quite high (1500 ms) on my low-perf netbook, because I know that very few page load faster. (the Wifi being another bottleneck)
On my High end desktop I set to to 0 or 1 to have maximum responsiveness.

About time ;)

Might be an idea to add to a later version, yes.
Note: setting to a very low value (less than 100 ms) is not recommended because network latency will then always waste time/CPU rendering a not-yet-renderable page (nothing received yet or just headers).

This will need translation until it's complete, also translation will be very tricky. It should be clear as glass or some users can wipe their computers by mistake. So why for the moment is English only.

A first version of the manual is available for Pale Moon Commander (PDF format).
Feel free to have a look through it and let me know any issues. Note that this manual is for PMC v1.0 which adds 2 things (Initial paint delay and switching to the new tab when opening bookmarks in a new tab) that are therefore in the manual but not in the currently released version of the extension.

The PDF can be downloaded here: http://ge.tt/api/1/files/7C0AjLa/2/blob?download

EDIT: Published v1.0 of the add-on now on the website http://www.palemoon.org/commander.shtml
AMO might take a while to review this as per usual.
