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.

Thank you again for new release, had some random crashes with 2750 while playing videos on youtube.

I can confirm this is running on 10.6.8 x64.

I've found one anomaly: there's an issue redrawing radio buttons on a preference window. Specifically, those in the "Tracking" section of "Privacy." The first draw of the window is correct, but if I select "History" and then return to "Tracking", the selected radio button is not drawn. This only happens when the window has focus and the drawing is shown correctly when I change the focus to the Pale Moon main window, or another application.

Snow Leopard user here too, youtube plays fine, html5 that is, though crashes happen randomly, when I bring up contextual menue for a youtube video and choose one of the menu items, i.e. to copy video url.

Problem with redrawing radio buttons (and other form elements) is discribed here https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=15199 – it happens not only in browser dialogues but also on webpages with form elements. It might be a Snow Leo only issue !?

Thanks for pointing me towards that, snowmoon.

I have yet to fully grasp the build environment for Pale Moon OSX and I fear that those versions of XCode which run on this aged OS will be unsuitable for attempting to build it myself.

CeeBee: the old XCode versions are preferred for releases -- they can target older OSes. In general you need to use an XCode and OS contemporaneous with the OS version you want to target.

Thanks very much Sugis for this!

I have been hoping/looking for an up to date secure replacement for Firefox 45 ESR for so long, as OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 is still my main (favorite) OS X version on Intel :D

I have tried Roccat 7.7 as the only other up to date secure replacement for Firefox 45 ESR but I seem unable to get used to how it works i.e. differs from the Mozilla browser style :?

Hello.
I am new here, so pardon me, if this has been already discussed (I have searched through OS X part of forum, but haven`t found anything) - but can be a 32-bit build made? I have an old Mini and MacBook which have both just 32-bit Core Duo CPUs. Thanks.

Here's what Sugis said about that last month:

Thanks - I missed that one. So, I guess, I have to try the build then.

So far not good: configure: error: MacOS X 10.7 SDK or later is required
But I keep trying.
