Support and discussions for the Apple Mac OSX builds of Pale Moon

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.

Yes, it's possible. However the current branch breaks packaging and can only be run on the build machine. I did manage to build an older branch where packaging still worked however. Just note its not as current as what they are working on, but it'll give you a good idea of things to come. The unofficial branding is Serpent in this build. Also note that this does not work on 10.6. This build works on 10.7 and above.

I guess you are using the "UXP" repo to build Basilisk, which is a work in progress. If you want a better Basilisk, try building from the "moebius" repo where I landed a few patches to specifically improve packaging on Mac. This repo is also more "current" in terms of feature set, and already well tried and tested.

moebius is deprecated and will be in maintenance mode as will Tycho in a few days.

Installed this on a friend's Mac, and it seems to be running great!
