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.

Will these builds for Snow Leopard also work with MacOS Sierra?

Yes. These were just built with the 10.7 SDK to fix the UI glitches that newer SDK's had when it came to snow leopard. The older SDK has no adverse effects on newer mac osx releases, but newer SDK's aren't fully backward compatible with older mac osx releases.

Very cool, wicknix, thanks a lot!

Your PM build runs even better on OS X 10.6 now. Last build, launched in terminal with scratch profile, seems to crash on/after exit (only noticeable in terminal) — anyway this is no longer the case with PM 27.9.2.

With PM 27.9.0 I had a problem with "Self-Destructing Cookies for PM" add-on, which appeared to be broken, this works again with PM 27.9.1 and 27.9.2.

Since a few builds crashes with youtube contextual menues seem to be resolved.

One thing that remains problematic with all recent builds, when I leave PM open through a whole day, with lots of tabs, maybe streaming going on, and I then decide to close the browser, PM crashes. RAM usage seems not to be excessive on those occasions. How PM 27.9.2 behaves in this regard? Let’s see. I will report.

All in all, I'm really happy with it.

This one seems to have the UI bug for me that makes the browser unusable. Whenever I click anywhere on the Pale Moon window, I notice in the title bar that File and then Edit are quickly highlighted, and then it interferes with my mouse click. Sugis latest build doesn't do that, so I'm guessing it may have to do with the compatibility fixes.

Thanks wicknix for your latest build of Pale Moon for Mac. It is working well on my mid 2009 MacBook Pro running OS X 10.9.5.

@PRIZZA What OS X are you running? Add-ons or themes installed? I tested on 10.6/10.7/10.8/10.9 and 10.11 and cant replicate that bug.

...and for everyone who's giving it a spin... You're welcome. :mrgreen:

Cheers

Unfortunately, above still happens. At least all tabs remain intact after restart, so nothing is lost.
