Mac 27.3.0 build

Support and discussions for the Apple Mac OSX builds of Pale Moon

Moderators: Indalecio, satrow

Important note:
The Mac OSX version of Pale Moon is still very much in development. Your assistance in bringing this build to fruition is greatly appreciated, but you can expect there to be bugs and problems for a while yet!

Any specific bugs you find that don't have their own topic yet: please make a new topic; one bug per topic please to keep things organized.

Please also note that these builds are currently created by Sugis and Moonchild will likely not be able to provide insight or assistance due to lack of Mac hardware and OS/build knowledge for Mac.

I am very glad it still works with Snow Leopard - the only modern browser that can be used with this OS.

Keep up the good work!

Hey,
So I just updated to 27.3 (very happy about it) -- except that suddenly I can't log into any online banking anywhere, or send attachments in gmail, even with addons disabled.
Is anyone else having any similar issues? ...Or, more to the point, does anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks!

This seems to have been lost in the mists of time and I'm curious: is the source for the Mac build available? I'd like to see what's needed to patch regular Pale Moon releases for Mac.

Currently there are no outstanding patches. All you need is a mozconfig, the developer tools, and a handful of libraries and you should be able to build a fresh tree much as you would on Linux.

Check out this thread for the difficulties in getting PM to build under OS X.

If you have some time, a more detailed how-to would be very much appreciated.

Ah, that thread mostly relates to the older 26.x.x series. There were numerous build difficulties during that time frame -- have you tried with the new 27 tree though? It took a lot less work to get it building on Mac than 26 did historically.

Anyone else having this problem?
I'd like to update but don't want to run into this.
Thanks heaps, guys! Best browser for Mac, by far!

I've used 27.3.0 as my daily browser since release day, and it generally works quite well. Hopefully that issue isn't widespread and the OP figured out a workaround or solution.

I just started to use Pale Moon in place of Firefox. I am using this latest available version.
Everything is working without problems so far.

Glad to see macOS development is going forward. Respect to the OP!

The only thing I'd like to change is the app icon on Mac: it became a grey one in this build. Is it possible to return to the milky blue icon?

GHSRobert, unfortunately the blue icon is reserved for official builds. We need another maintainer and to fix a couple of issues (auto-update not working, for example) before Moonchild would allow the Mac build to be official. Applications for maintainership are open ;)

It's a great icon, just a bit too small.

one issue i found is that silverlight wouldn't be found though it is installed. Both flash ( which did work ), and silverlight were installed into `/Library/Internet\ Plugins`

So i tried installing the newest silverlight (by default it was downloading an old 3.xx release ,how ? : http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid= ... .0.40624.0 <--- change the last query to the preferred version https://www.microsoft.com/getsilverligh ... _5_1_50907). then i deleted the pluginreg.dat and blocklist.xml files from my profile. None of this had any effect though! I guess it is due to mozilla's plugin blocking being forced to affect the palemoon install somehow

Just installed to replace Firefox on my 10.6.8 system. So far all is well with the same extensions running.

Excellent and hope you can keep the support for the older system.

I just installed this on 10.6.8 with SeaMonkey 2.40 running and Firefox 45 installed. When I launched it, SeaMonkey stopped responding & so stopped playing an internet radio station. It then caused my system to overheat to the point of kicking on the fans on my MacBook, and it was slow to respond. While the other two were slow trying to run in 64-bit mode, I don't remember them overheating my system. Having them run in 32-bit mode made them more quick to respond. I'd do the same with Pale Moon, but that's not an option on its Info Panel. Please add this option in a future release. Thanks in advance!

Hi, sorry but I am not likely to release a 32 bit build any time soon. Too much time invested for little return (32 bit is dead!) However you could build it yourself without too much trouble if you like.
