Re: Oracle JRE crashes Palemoon 28.1

Java 8 is working just fine for me with Pale Moon, under PCLinuxOS: the missing symbol you get is from the C++ library. Apparently, the libstdc++ version on your Xubuntu 14.04 distro is too old, and Java 8 was compiled with a newer version. Simply install a newer libstdc++ (/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6...

Re: FindBar Tweak now works in PM 28! (Well, mostly...)

It's possible that with the next release there will be some compatibility issues again since we're moving the Findbar to be a global window toolbar again, instead of per-tab, to solve a number of issues with the per-tab setup. This is a great piece of news: indeed, the major annoyance I found when ...

Re: Password manager for Pale Moon 28.0?

I use something similar called PWDhash. But it's not a hash that gets inputed into the password field. It just uses a hash with the URL to generate a unique password based on the password you use on input. And that password can be the same for all websites since each password created based on the U...

Re: Password manager for Pale Moon 28.0?

I do not like password managers that rely on external sites, so I am using an old (and alas unmaintained) but nice Firefox extension: password-hasher . With this extension, all you need is a private password that you can easily remember and use with all websites; that password is hashed with the sit...

Re: Palemoon crashing every minute with GLXBadContext error

Is there any chance that NVIDIA's proprietary driver installed with Mesa libGL? A very good question, indeed. When using the proprietary drivers, you must always reinstall them each time your distro's Mesa (and/or X11) packages are updated, else you will run into library conflicts (NVIDIA's GL libr...

Re: Palemoon crashing every minute with GLXBadContext error

Strange... I'm using Pale Moon (both v27 and v28) and never have had any issue with GLX (no crash). I'm using NVIDIA's proprietary drivers and Xorg.0.log reports:

Code: Select all

(II) Initializing extension GLX
(II) Indirect GLX disabled.
WebGL is working just fine too.

PM28 breaks Linky

Another addon I am using occasionally but that is extremely useful is Linky . It works just fine with PM27 but got broken with PM28. All I get when trying to use it is the following (cryptic) message in the error console: Error: ReferenceError: linkyContext is not defined Source File: chrome://brows...

Re: PM 28.0.0b2 oddities/issues

We had to change the internal location of the find bar to be tab-dependent due to architectural changes in the browser platform. Yes, I guess you did not change it just for the fun of it. :D Even so, if you open a new find bar in a second tab, the term you entered will be retained in it as default....

Re: PM 28.0.0b2 oddities/issues

Oh, and I almost forgot:
  • The search (CTRL F) bar turned into a per-tab one instead of a global (common to all tabs) one, which is extremely annoying when you open several tabs on the same site (but on different pages of that site), in search for some word(s) on them all.

PM 28.0.0b2 oddities/issues

It's now been a week that I am using PM 28.0.0b2 instead of PM 27.9.3, and I found two annoying oddities: PM 28 renders some pages at half the speed of PM 27 and can take ages (5+ minutes !) to close them. Here is such an affected site: http://ftp.belnet.be/mirror/pclinuxonline.com/pclinuxos/apt/pcl...

Greetings, I finally got around finding a little time to compile and try PM 28. Among all the extensions I am using, one (a pure little jewel that I could simply not do without so much I use it) is totally broken: Custom Buttons . The issue seems to be related with the __defineGetter__ JavaScript fu...

Re: Microsoft is buying GitHub

An interesting read Github is already a service comprising things you can't do on your own computer, anyway. Sure, you can do version control, but not the interaction with other collaborators part. Of course, you could: just setup a git repo on your computer, make it available via Internet to other...
