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 just downloaded New Moon 27.9.3 and am used it to write the reply to myself after booting the image on a Slow Leopard ramdisk. Using Gecko compatibility mode, it displays the Paypal test page for PCI DSS http://sandbox.paypal.com/
- so does 27.3.0 when running it now after closing New Moon, but now the system won't allow me to switch back to Firefox.
Will .9.3 be the last update to 27?

so I closed Pale Moon, and a Firefox window displays, but the menu bar was still Pale Moon's. I then closed it again and relaunched New Moon, but the problem persists, so I had to force quit Firefox and restore the session, which seemed to cause it to overheat, as the fan kicked on.

I just tried to see if the problem of not being able to switch to Firefox repeats by closing New Moon and relaunching Pale Moon, and it didn't, but the fans are still running.

Hello wicknix, thanks again for your work!

Everything works fine (iMac 27", late 2009, 10.6.8).

Paypal's test page also works in Native & Firefox modes. However Smith's only recognises the latter, otherwise it sends you to

Can we have the option of opening the final version for Snow Leopard in 32-bit mode, please, if it's not too much extra work?

I looked in to that, and it is too much work for me to mess with. It would involve me wiping my current build environment and installing all the macports "universal" packages. The other option is building natively on an old 32 bit core solo/duo machine, which i don't have. All my intel machines are core2duo 64 bit.

Cheers
