Are you blocking mega.co.nz?

Restart PM in Safe Mode & see if that makes a difference?

Mega requires local storage to be enabled. If you have disabled that it won't work.

Preferences-Advanced-Network-'When a website asks to store local content' - should be always ask by default, and there's a button marked Exceptions, for sites that are blocked from local storage. Remove Mega from this list if it's there.

about:config -> dom.storage.enabled = true

As therube said, please also make sure that you are not blocking requests from mega.co.nz
Blocking requests from that domain gives me the message in your screenshot.

Was taking a look, what does device.storage.enabled do? Defaults to false.

Thanks I checked and it was set to true. It used to work with Moonchild 27 and I never changed any settings.

The amount of change from PM 27 to PM 28.7.1 is enormous. And Mega has doubtless changed as well.

So please check any adblocker, content blocker etc that you may have and make sure that it doesn't block requests from mega.co.nz.

At first I was like :think: Then I read the next response and was like :lol: OK I get it. :thumbup: I love this browser Palemoon. It's my favorite browser of the 10 use frequently. I tried turning off the ad blocker and nothing changed. It was doing the same thing a few versions ago but then it worked for version 27. I am just offering feed back at the most. Thanks none the less.

As asked above, what happens in safe mode?
