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.

Help getting OpenJDK 8 working in Pale Moon for Mac

Post by realmdee » 2019-11-20, 08:11

I installed OpenJDK 8 successfully using the instructions from this link https://installvirtual.com/install-open ... ptopenjdk/. But OpenJDK 8 is not appearing as installed in the Pale Moon Add-on Manager under plugins. Do I need to uninstall my installation of Oracle Java SE 8 first for OpenJDK 8 to appear or is OpenJDK 8 not compatible with Pale Moon for Mac? If I need to uninstall Oracle Java SE 8 first how would I do that? I am using OS X 10.5. I would like to migrate away from Oracle Java SE 8 so any help anyone can provide would be appreciated.

Hi, I'm looking at what I have installed under plugins and it's this: Java applet plugin 15.0.0.1, last updated in 2015. The JDK (Java Development Kit) really has nothing to do with the browser applet plugin. The applet plugin is what runs Java applets in the browser, so if what PM comes with doesn't work for you, you'll need to find another Java applet plugin.

Hope that helps!

Pale Moon does not contain anything Java software.
