Re: Is it worth using a theme?

I have found that UI has played a big role in my choice of browsers over the years. I wouldn't say that theming is essential as such, but some way to get the browser to a UI I like is, and theming is one tool that can aid me on that quest. LootyHoof is pretty good at keeping his themes current and w...

Ideas for themes

How about some "dark theme" variants of existing themes like Past Modern Revisited, Moonscape, and/or Photonic?

I know Pale Moon does have some dark themes, but none really fit the vibe of the themes mentioned above.

Re: Free for all "off-topic" board?

My suggestion would be that there be a subforum that allows non-PM related discussion, but where its limited to topics related to software, hardware, and technology- and that it would be moderated. Essentially, I would like to recreate what we had in General Discussion before it given a more narrow ...

Re: Oh how I wish PM was on Android.

Aside from that: I don't trust Mozilla anymore -- especially not with their always-on telemetry and server-controlled "system extensions" that gives them a lot more control over my browser than I want and a lot more behavioral detail than what Google gathers . The words I highlighted in the quote a...

Re: Oh how I wish PM was on Android.

I tried Waterfox on Android and unfortunately it was all sorts of broken in terms of the password manager and even trying to log in to a few sites (e.g. reddit login massively failed). I had to go back to Chrome. I'm not surprised that you had issues with Waterfox for Android. The reviews when it w...

Re: UBlock Origin Blocks Huffington Post. What's Going On?

it's possible that a site-specific useragent override telling it that one is using a mobile browser to visit might be a potential workaround if one doesn't mind browsing their mobile site on desktop- at least until they institute a mobile version of this, too. Just to update: This method did not wo...

Re: UBlock Origin Blocks Huffington Post. What's Going On?

Thanks everyone. It looks like this has spread to Engadget, too. That's another site owned by Verizon. So far, Yahoo, which like HuffPost and Engadget is also owned by Verizon, appears to be unaffected. The Verizon Wireless homepage is also unaffected. Someone noted earlier in the thread that the ad...

UBlock Origin Blocks Huffington Post. What's Going On?

I want to state just at the onset I am fully aware that this is: 1. Not a browser specific issue -and- 2. Not necessarily even an issue with UBlock Origin, which may be functioning as intended based on the input it's getting from some of the filter lists I use and whatever it's finding on the site i...

Re: Looking for a Firefox replacement... Again.

I swear this is becoming a cycle as the years roll on. Currently stuck with FF 56 cause Quantum breaks alot of my extensions and their Quantum equivalents are just slag due to all of the functionality WebExtensions removes from the new API... That's a code thing I deal with storytelling. So now Moz...

Re: Firefox expired cert force-disables all user add-ons

As an aside, it occurs to me that Firefox could keep it's goal of essentially requiring signed extensions while avoiding situations like what is occurring now with one simple long-term change. This wouldn't have to be implemented now, when the goal should just be to get things working against ASAP, ...

Have There Been a Lot of Extra Downloads of Pale Moon During the Last Day or So?

I know Pale Moon intentionally doesn't do much in the way of telemetry. It's a (much appreciated) feature, not a bug (And I'm not using that phrase as a joke). However, I would imagine that the number of downloads are at least kept track of, and that there is at least a count kept of how many browse...

Re: Firefox expired cert force-disables all user add-ons

Cool down. You have to enable "Mozilla Studies" for a few minutes only, just as long as it takes to re-enable the certificate and the disabled add-ons / themes. The Mozilla instruction tells so. Once the disabled objects have been re-enabled you can disable "Mozilla Studies" again. It is just a som...

Update: https://www.theverge.com/2019/5/4/18529456/mozilla-firefox-extensions-bug-certifications-error-fix Now Mozilla apparently wants everyone to opt into "Mozilla studies" in order to receive a patch for this bug. That's borderline infuriating. They've got to be kidding. I'm not signing up for yo...

Re: Is there an add on that allows share to email from the URL bar?

You can try Email This! . Don't know whether it will work in PM 28, have not used it. Thanks! I used the classic add-ons archive just to limit how many sources I'm using for add-ons (For security reasons, I figure it's a good idea not to expose myself to a million random AMOs), but I used the add-o...

Is there an add on that allows share to email from the URL bar?

Is there a Pale Moon add-on that places an icon in the right-hand corner of the URL bar that (when clicked) opens an email on your default email program (In my case, Thunderbird for Windows right now) and automatically gives it the subject line from the article headline/page name you are viewing and...

Re: Firefox expired cert force-disables all user add-ons

Pale Moon is working beautifully (as I expected it would based on years of previous use as my #1 browser) as a desktop replacement for Firefox. I wonder how many people will move away from Firefox temporarily because of this situation and never bother to move back. One issue I was finding with Edge ...

Re: Firefox expired cert force-disables all user add-ons

Hard to believe they still haven't pushed out a fix yet. With that big of an organization and as many developers as they must have, it points to at least a mild level of incompetance somewhere. If nothing else, one would think a hot fix update flipping everyone's about:config to allow unsigned exten...

I always though an anthropomorphic logo would be neat. The logo could be a cartoon pale moon with eyes, a nose, and a smiling mouth. Kind of like this, but a moon rather than a baseball: https://calltothepen.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/135/files/2014/04/9040_hagerstown_suns-cap-2013.png It'd give the l...

Re: Firefox expired cert force-disables all user add-ons

It appears as though this started at a time when most Americans are done web browsing from a PC for the day and that it will be resolved by the time they wake up in the morning. So, the timing isn't that bad for Mozilla. The majority of users will never realize this happened (Assuming the western he...
