25.0 version make it look a newer

Unread post by samms7 » 2018-04-13, 13:37

Version 25.0 works really good on my old netbook but some sites tells me I'm using old browser. Is there a way I can make it appear as new version in changing something in about:config . Thanks for your help .

You are using an old browser. The latest version of Pale Moon Portable is 27.8.3.

That said, the issue you are seeing is probably related to user agent sniffing. Some sites use this as a lazy way to determine if your browser will work for their site or not. Pale Moon includes some settings for automatically overriding the user agent for certain websites; these settings are probably out of date in your version, so I'd highly recommend using the latest version if possible.
Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon (64-bit)
Windows 7 (64-bit) (Sometimes)
Windows 10 build 1803 (64-bit) (Sometimes)
We are our choices.

If you use Windows 7 there is no reason to not update Pale Moon to something that isn't from three and a half years ago.

Well, you have no rights to support or questions for ancient versions of Pale Moon so.. Enjoy Pale Moon 25. Have a nice day.

Nope, it's simply not possible. The browser is too old and many websites will use features that such an old version doesn't support. This can't be "fixed" with extensions either. You'll just have to upgrade to a current version. As Tobin said, we can't and won't provide support for such an old version.
