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 wicknix and Moonchild will likely not be able to provide insight or assistance due to lack of Mac hardware and OS/build knowledge for Mac.

New Moon 28.0.0 on El Capitan using CPU

Unread post by kneutron » 2018-09-09, 21:44

NM 28.0.0 on OSX El Capitan 10.11.6 is using heavy CPU (107%) on a 2008 iMac 6GB RAM, dual-core CPU with (12) windows open (and God knows how many tabs. :oops: ) Using the Restart add-on brings memory usage down from 1.97GB/844MB compressed to more reasonable levels (~1.2GB) and resets CPU usage to ~50% of 1 core. Message me and I can email a tarball of my New Moon session and hardware info if someone tells me what directorie(s) to include. TIA

I also have OpenZFS and Virtualbox installed on the iMac, FYI

Sorry for the late reply, lot going on lately.
28.1.0a1 looks like it has been causing overheating and hanging my iMac, sometimes after only 12 hours of uptime. :oops:
Any newer builds available?
