The look of tabs changed between v25 and v26. There is a thread about it here, including a solution for those wanting the old style back.

I build from the official sources. I make no alterations to the source code (except for the version string for the About dialog box). I certainly don't include any extensions.

I checked and there are no references to "colormytabs" in the source I used, and that string doesn't show up in about:config for me. There's something strange and possibly worrying going on with your system. Have you ever used Color My Tabs? I don't know if it's possible for an extension to leave behind some "trash" (i.e. about:config entries) when it's removed.

If you check Help > Troubleshooting Information, what is listed under "Extensions"?

v26.0.3.SSE released

Unread post by Mercury » 2016-02-06, 23:37

Version 26.0.3 is now available here.

With how quickly this update followed, I've learned my lesson: It pays to be lazy. 8-) I could've skipped one more version if I'd just waited another day.

And that would be a mistake. We release updates for a reason.. They are all important. Every last one of them. That is a distinct difference between what we do and rabid release.

Thank you once again, Mercury!

I know it was a kinda joke, but no, in the long run, it never pays to be lazy. ;)

You're welcome. :)

Unfortunately, it's a fact that my releases can lag behind the mainline build, sometimes more, sometimes less. I do this when I have free time, and I can't have a response-time guarantee. Usually SSE build will come within a few days of a new PM version.

One thing I'm set on is that if, one day, I decide I can't keep up this task anymore, I'll make a formal announcement about it rather than leaving people hanging with false hope. I've been burned by that behavior myself.

Don't worry about it, a few days delay is fine. I just hope that the day when you give up on maintaining your build won't come anytime soon.

Great! Thanks, Mercury & the PM team!

BTW, I wish more people express their gratitude here for everything Mercury and the PM team are doing. C'mon guys, they are doing this for us.

Quite some time ago I have indeed installed "Color My Tabs" once. I guess those were indeed leftovers in about:config.
I've done a complete uninstall and installed v26.0.1 rightafter. The "Color My Tabs" entries are gone now.

That I didn't know. Thanks. I've tried and messed around a bit with the userChrome.css posted by 'Lootyhoof', but it didn't work out for my setup. I'll stick to the new look for now.

P.s. Despite having ticked everything in the notification options in the control panel, I wasn't notified by your post. Weird.

Maybe because I didn't reply directly to you, and just posted in the thread? I'm not sure; I don't really use notifications myself.

Glad we got that mystery solved.

Don't worry too much about me. Thanks are nice, and I appreciate it, but I take a practical standpoint and I'm more interested in whether my builds actually work. I work under the assumption that you test each version before you thank me. ;) And that lack of posts means there are no complaints.

v26.1.1.SSE released

Unread post by Mercury » 2016-02-26, 00:34

Get it while it's hot. 8-)

Also, small announcement:
I will be removing the v26 beta builds; I expect that no one cares about them or ever did, and they're especially useless now, but on the miniscule chance that someone wants them, they'll be available for download for another 5 days or so.

Installed and I'm running the latest build all flawlessly. :)

Thanks and keep it up!

P.S. About outdated beta builds, yes, I think it's OK to remove them since they are redundant now.

yup :)
Before i can't see v26.1.1. Now I use it. Thanks.
I think older version is faster especially on YT.

I have an old Dell Latitude D600 laptop. I have been using PM Atom/winxp which works well.
I am curious about PM SSE.
Do you think that it may work better on my old laptop?
Is it OK to install both PM Atom/winxp and PM SSE on the same computer?
Do the PM and FF extensions work with PM SSE?

I doubt it. Lack of SSE2 instructions is a handicap. It will probably perform slightly worse, though I think the difference would not be noticeable by a human.

I don't recommend it. If you want to try PM SSE, download the .zip file and extract the files to a dedicated location. You can then run it by launching the executable directly. All version of Pale Moon will try to access the same profile by default, so all your settings, extensions, bookmarks, history, etc. will be picked up automatically.
Do the PM and FF extensions work with PM SSE?
Yes. PM SSE and PM Atom should be functionally identical.
