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.

Thanks again sugis! Seems faster with this iteration. Working great on mid-2010 MacBook Pro OS 10.9.5.

Seems to be a bit snappier on a mid 2012 MBP running macOS Sierra 10.12.2 than the beta :-D

Now, all I gotta do is figure how to stop various transitions and other bits of flashy crap from happening that websites think are cool but give me a stonking headache. I guess a Stylish-type sort of add-on is gonna be needed :-(

That's not the programmers' fault, but the self-interested parties who try and define the HTML "standard" ;-)

Don't know about Youtube or anything like that as I don't do Flash or social media.

(Maybe I should try Lynx, no? ;-P)

Well done Sugis :-D

Happy New Year, all!

I just installed 27.0.3 for Mac ... and found that there are no preferences. The only item in the menu is 'Quit'. I remember that this happened on a previous version, and that it got fixed somehow, but I can't remember how.

Is there another download link, perhaps?
Or what was the fix? Does anyone remember?

@silvercloud, fix is simple, just quit and at next launch of PM the menu is complete again.

The other remaining bug is a sticky "private window" with window controls absent, but you can still close it with CMD—W.

Besides that PM 27.0.3 works flawlessly here on OS X 10.6. Regarding snappiness, well, it is definitely not slower :mrgreen:

Happy New Year!

Unfortunately no checkmarks in menus bug is still present.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

For me, that bug only occurs on the first start of the browser. Closing the browser and reopening it always fixes the issue for me.

I've never seen anything besides "Quit" in that menu since 27 came out.

I am running PaleMoon for MacOS now!
Thanks for the work!

Got similar issues:
- I've never seen anything besides "Quit" in that menu since 27 came out.
- no checkmarks in menus

Not sure If I can help in coding (have completely no clue on what is required to build OSX version :oops: )
Let me know if you need help beside bug reported :lol:

P.S. So many extensions cannot be installed, cannot do real battle test yet ;)

Thanks again for all of your hard work. I too have experienced the "Quit bug" (on 10.11.6 and 10.6.8) but it seems to be a non-issue after restarting, and it only occurs on first launch for me.

The latest version of Greasemonkey works great with it (I'm using it with a userscript limiting YouTube to 30 fps to reduce CPU load).

It even works on Snow Leopard, making it the only (apart from Firefox ESR, for a little while longer) updated browser for this OS. Please, let future versions work also!

Thank you so much for opening the door for me to Pale Moon on the Mac OS.

Now it has replaced Firefox and Vivaldi and Chrome on my machine.

Only issue I'm having with this version is that I cannot set it as default browser. It's listed as default in the OSX settings (10.10.5) but every time Pale Moon opens, it asks the "not default, would you like to set as default?" question.

Indeed. But if your Mac has a Core 2 Duo CPU, you can also run Waterfox, which is based on the latest codebase for Firefox. However, Waterfox is 64-bit only (so it won't run on Core Duo Macs).

Just spotted this...

Go to about:config and set browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser to false and you're all set ;)
