Tutorials and Howtos should only relate to Pale Moon, and not to third party applications. e.g.: Don't post a Howto for configuring your firewall.
If you have a question how to do something, you should use one of the support boards, not this board. It is meant for people to document and post instructions.

To guess about the refresh button on the logger page, there's probably something that's not getting passed along properly .. the refresh button seems to work correctly in 1.3.6 .. haven't really gotten into the code otherwise beyond looking for the (why) of the Icon/button not appearing properly.
Thanks for looking into it.
I'm afraid I can't help you with troubleshooting, because I am not a programmer...
I will try building v1.3.12 tomorrow.

The issue with the logger is not really a showstopper for me anyway.

Thanks again!
As far as I can see it works well.
The Logger refresh button is functional again!

I have changed the incorrect version number in the install.rdf file in the *.xpi to 1.3.12

Testing on https://browserleaks.com/javascript shows uMatrix is functioning as it should.

This is indeed the last non-webext version... :(

Sort of.
I followed MoonSavvy's guide from this thread, then added my own changes.
It's indeed an earlier version, but it's still from this discussion.
Anyway, eMatrix and uMatrix at this point in time are effectively two separate programs and things related to uMatrix are not necessarily related to eMatrix too.
I wonder if I should open a support thread, but it'll have to wait for the next version.

From curiosity, which version is it?

I literally followed MoonSavvy's guide from earlier in this thread, so 1.3.2.
After the fact I went to look at the uMatrix changelog and decided that the amount of new features/bug fixes compared to the amount of work needed to make it compatible with Pale Moon, isn't worth a later version.

Well, until people start reporting bugs, I'd say it's only a matter of telling people the add-on is available (for example, instead of suggesting uMatrix, suggest eMatrix.)
This version is quite stable, so until Pale Moon or Basilisk get significant changes I don't really need to touch anything.

Hey folks,

Thank you for the research and fixes. I've noticed there is a performance degradation around 5-10% between 1.3.6 (1.3.3b8) and 1.3.12. It seems that 1.3.6 is the fastest one compared to 1.3.2 and 1.1.4
