Re: Tab loading icon blinking on Pale Moon 27.6  Topic is solved

It's actually an encoding issue in the throbber image (thank you Mozilla!). The libPNG update made the code more optimized, which resulted in the decoder trusting what's in the PNG meta data, and as a consequence dropping wrongly-encoded frames.

I'll have an updated version of the throbber in the next point release, and a more permanent fix for any other incorrect images in the next major release.
Improving Mozilla code: You know you're on the right track with code changes when you spend the majority of your time deleting code.

I suggest you next time not to hesitate to open issues on GitHub, especially when you have already completely determined the cause of the problem :thumbup:
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

- In the chrome folder edit userChrome.css and add/insert the following lines:


Would this be /usr/lib/palemoon/browser/chrome ?
There is no userChrome.css there in my case. Am I looking in the right place?

Any word on a new unstable x64_86 build that fixes this blinking issue?

And what is the path to the chrome folder in question to do the manual workaround? Is it usr/lib/palemoon/browser/chrome ?

Sorry, have been traveling the past couple days for a friend's wedding. I will have a new unstable build up either later tonight or tomorrow morning.

I have searched for the same file to make some modifications, but there is definitely no file by that name in Pale Moon!
I am very interested in reading the answer you hopefully will get, gracious1.

Thank you, biopsin, that was useful info! :thumbup:

I am running a live Puppylinux, as usual as root, and in the .moonchild productions/palemoon/profiles.ini, the user is Name=default.
What should I use to make the userChrome.css file, for example defaultprofile.local/Chrome/userChrome.css, or what? I am moving in unknown territory here!
I have seen from previous atempt to find a userChrome.css file, that they always should begin with the lines:

Code: Select all

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);
@-moz-document url(chrome://browser/content/browser.xul);

Is that a pure Firefox thing, or should that be applied here also?

Okay, you've lost me again. :shock:
No chrome folder exists inside any of my profile directories.
None of my profiles end in .local .
There is a .local folder in each profile directory.
So I am not sure what you are saying here.

Is the path, for example,

Code: Select all

/home/my_name/.moonchild productions/pale moon/72f6qfy3.test_profile/.local/chrome
or

Code: Select all

/home/my_name/.moonchild productions/pale moon/72f6qfy3.test_profile/chrome
or is it something else?



ADDENDUM:
OK, I found out some of what I need to know here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserChrome.css
The path is:
/home/my_name/.moonchild productions/pale moon/72f6qfy3.test_profile/chrome
Create the chrome directory if it isn't there. Create file userChrome.css .

doffen wrote:{some stuff}

The highlighted string in the example above, by the way, is found in the profiles.ini, in the entry that starts with Path=, not Name= .

I also think that the first line should be:

Code: Select all

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);

Anyone who knows for sure about the first line, please post & say whether that is so. Thanks.

With 27.6.2 the blinking icon is gone. Yes! It was really slow and annoying for a while, but pages are now loading and responding super fast, as they used to. Thanks for getting that fixed up!

Well, I am glad that the blinking has been fixed, because I could never get the workaround described in this thread to work. Still would like the one who posted it in the first place to say more about it and be specific.

Thanks to Moonchild and the rest of the Pale Moon team for taking care of it!
