Have you tried uninstalling Pale Moon, and then reinstalling Pale Moon? A thought comes to mind that some of files of your Pale Moon installation may be corrupt.

I'll get one built either tonight or tomorrow. Aleph, I'll shoot you a PM once it's ready.

I will continuous testing.

After many tests I never had a crash with this built.

Also I tried a new blank user with palemoon -p. Always was stable (although very very slow and heavy)

What now...?

Any suggestion?

I'm not really familiar with AntiX. Looks like it uses Fluxbox/IceWM? Does it include all the necessary GTK dependencies for Pale Moon?

Iceweasel - Firefox runs fine on Antix.

Are you implying that additional, special "GTK dependencies" exist for Palemoon?

If yes, which ones are these dependencies?

No, there shouldn't be any special dependencies. I'm just not familiar with AntiX, Fluxbox or IceWM, so it was just a thought.

I installed AntiX in a VM today and used the installer to install Pale Moon. I use it for a while, and while I do get the "`GtkRange::activate-slider'" message in the terminal, I did not notice any instability and could not reproduce the crashes that the OP reported (all OS settings, themes, etc. left at default)

Hi trava90,

yes, some people in antiX had problems with Palemoon and others not.

My antiX "full" installation in very simple, pointing to the Debian jessie "stable" repositories, locale "es_ES.UTF-8" and with not more programs installed as OTB except "Spotify".

Spotify installed some libreries:

- libpangoxft-1.0-0
- libgcrypt11_1.5.4-3_amd64.deb

I followed this instructions:

http://linuxconfig.org/installation-of-spotify-client-on-debian-linux-8-jessie-64-bit

I have not more clues for find an explanation to this problem.

@Aleph
Has Pale Moon 25.6.0 fixed the segmentation faults (crashes) you were experiencing, or do the release builds still cause crashes for you?

Hi Axiomatic,

just installed the new Pale Moon 25.6.0 version from the Mepis repositories and I got the same error :(

See if you can reproduce the crashes with our 25.6.0 build.

As another test, can you try to run Pale Moon on an antiX Live System?

Use it :) Well, get rid of everything Pale Moon related that does not work and install that built. You could either use the pmsintaller or install manually following these
http://linux.palemoon.org/help/installation/
instructions.

Sounds like something with the Mepis build caused the instability on AntiX.

As Sven said, just remove the Mepis build and then install Pale Moon directly from us and you should be good. :)

Maybe it'd also be a good idea to nudge the Mepis repo maintainer that there's a problem with their build?
