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.

Pale Moon 28.0.0a4 for Mac

Unread postby wicknix » Fri, 15 Jun 2018, 05:14

Before you give this unofficial build a spin read this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=19235

Now that you've done that and feel comfortable, you may download it here:

FYI: PM28 builds for Mac will not work on 10.6 snow leopard. You'll need 10.7 or higher.

Hey wicknix, supercool, that you're doing these new builds too! :thumbup:

At the moment I can't test, but I plan to upgrade to Mavericks eventually, haven't decided on a ssd for my 2009 Mac mini yet, but I’m definitely keen on checking out UXP PM. Hopefully in the meantime others help out with testing.

Should I wait for Sugis to make their unstable build instead?

You could wait, but there wont be any "official unstable" releases for Mac. Not for awhile yet anyway, as PM has never officially supported macosx. The goal is to get macosx officially supported sooner than later however. That's why all mac builds currently use the unofficial "new moon" branding.

Alright. If I delete my PM, and get this version, will all my bookmarks (and history) carry over?

Bookmarks yes. I'm not 100% sure about history however as i have PM set to never remember history.

Right on. Well i can say, after 10.6, 10.9 is probably the last good OSX before things got too iOS-like. I do like mavericks and use it daily on my 2007 imac. It can handle up to el capitan, but i dislike 10.10 and 10.11. I triple boot 10.6/10.9/10.11 on that machine. My 2006 imac, and 2008 macbook triple boots 10.6/10.7/10.8 (macpostfactor hack for 10.8 on both). I only keep 10.11 around for the newer garageband. My guess is that 10.12-10.14 are just as bad as 10.10/10.11, if not worse.

Okay, I can now confirm that this build of Palemoon does NOT remember the last session from the 27.9.0 build. The builds are not 100% compatible.

I can confirm that this build is working great on my Mid 2009 MacBook Pro running OS X 10.9.5. Also I can confirm that all my add-ones still work which is fantastic.

Alright, switched to this build for now on. Every window is now draggable, which is an instant plus. However, I cannot restore any prior session, and the option is permanently greyed out. Also, the bookmarks tend to disappear when I open the browser each new time (have to manually "deselect" and select to make them appear).

Will use Waterfox until the "restore session" works.
