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 noticed you built it still using unstable branding.
I built it using official release branding, since it is the actual 27.5.0 release code and not a development snapshot.
If I remember correctly I had to backport the nsLocalFileUnix.cpp code fix, a simple if(MAC) then !define statement.
I saw is now merged into the master tree (27.6), That should be backported officially for the next 27.5.X series release.
While short of creating myself a github account, until then I hope this is helpful.
I'm assuming the normal process for code changes is through that system.
I spent maybe 12 hours reading through the entire code tree, all the moz.build files, and mozconfigs, configure.in, Makefiles,
Just to get myself a decent .mozconfig file.
From what I see, when Palemoon was forked from Firefox, was back when 64-bit intel Macs were possibly just coming out,
therefor the proper mozconfigs for a 64-bit Intel Mac included on more recent versions of Firefox are not in our tree.
Anyway, I haven't found any problems with 27.5.0 that I built.
Here's the mozconfig starter I use, would be curious to hear what differs from yours:

I've had this issue ever since I switched to Pale Moon on two systems.

I have just upgraded to macOS 10.13 and installed PM 27.5
This seems to have improved performance on my 2015 i7 MBA generally, and PM seems to be running fine.
It has apparently solved an issue with Disqus, where the display sequence drop down menu was not working.
How does one stop favicons from being added to bookmarks? I tried setting in about:config:
browser.chrome.favicons = false
browser.chrome.site_icons = false
I even tried adding a filter to uBlock Origin: */favicon*.ico
Those actions do not prevent the icons from appearing in new bookmarks. Where are those things stored so I can get rid of them, and how do I prevent any new ones?
I added a user.js file to my profile, but the settings in it were not copied to my prefs. It is a real bother to add all the settings manually. Is that totally unusable in Pale Moon?
What code do I need to use to make the add bookmark window bigger? I have a userChrome.css file, so I could add code to it if I knew the element name and syntax.
I installed my favorite Tab Kit 2 on it (modified a bit for Palemoon) and all seems to be working fine
And faster than Firefox too! (or maybe I dropped some unused extensions when migrating)
I am ready to give up Firefox now!
