Pale Moon stops loading pages

Postby PCMasterRace » Tue Aug 22, 2017 7:30 am

After a while (maybe after hitting a certain threshold of tabs open???) Pale Moon stops loading pages, or perhaps it loads them really slowly and many time out and fail to load. Restarting or ctrl-alt-deleting and recovering PM fixes the issue. Does this happen for anyone else? I use a ton of extensions, so maybe it's one of them, I am looking into that. I will list them, maybe someone else who has the same issue will see they also use one of these extensions.

I seem to sometimes (unconfirmed, sorry) have an issue where the browser possibly gives up without an error message and shows me a blank page!

Reminds me of Netscape 4.7x or the like in the very late-1990s or the very early-2000s, where it randomly gives up and just says "Done" on the lower left, IIRC... :thumbdown:

It's most likely to happen on I hope it was just a brief server issue...

Windows 10 Home with "Creators Update" on a Pentium Braswell N3700.

Braswell shan't be a load of bull like Intel graphics was in the Pentium III era, FFS!

Since nobody have that problem you should disable your addons one-by-one

I also get that issue. It seems to occur mostly if I visit twitter. All new pages will continuously load when it happens. It's not a network issue as I can use other programs that connect to the internet just fine. Sometimes the issue resolves itself after some minutes or forceably by restarting the browser. I'm not using any of those addons though.

I have similar problem, after visiting several pages (for example this one: Pale Moon just completely stops loading content until restart.
Safe mode does not helps, so it is not about addons.

No issue here with the latest unstable version. Neither on Windows 7 or 8.

Some possible issue reasons ways to find the issue:

1) When copy-pasting the profile from recent Firefox versions into Pale Moon, that does not work out in a good way as Mozilla changed a lot of stuff which makes newer Firefox profiles quite incompatible. You can import the bookmarks for example but not just copy paste the profile as a whole.

2) As it was already said that deactivating add-ons changed nothing, try to make a fresh profile and see if the issue arrives with a totally fresh one
