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.

Been using Pale Moon on OS X for almost four years now, from version 25.2.1 on Lion 10.7.5 built by BitVapor and lately running 27.x/28.x on a Mavericks 10.9.5 installation with first the sugis and now the wicknix builds.

The Pale Moon browser is clearly maturing in many good ways, leading to a better experience all round on any OS including with this latest Mac build. As a regular user of Linux, Windows and Mac for many and various paid/professional tech tasks over the past 25 years, Pale Moon is without question the best browser that I have ever seen or used.

This appears to me to be the best version of this great browser for Mac yet, so many thanks @wicknix! :clap:

Thanks. The real credit goes to the main devs. I've only submitted a couple patches to date. I do enjoy building for mac though. :)

Cheers.

Might as well ask: why is the "form & search history" option now permanently greyed out? It has been that way for at least couple of weeks for me.

EDIT: never mind, I'm stupid. I made the browser not remember those things before.

Very well said sir! Pale Moon continues to deliver and it ranks the highest in my books - most specifically the 27.6.2 release (the last one ever, still having the option of the user to veto the cookie accept / reject process, on a per-domain basis, and which I like and I cannot live without it). I'm currently using it on both Windows and Linux.

And at my new workplace, I am required to use a Mac now. Any chance for trying out the 27.6.2 build for OS X? I've seen sugis has it available here:
http://mac.palemoon.org/dist/palemoon-27.6.2.mac64.dmg

Is that the right one to try out? Or @wiknix may have his own build as well, perhaps?

Thanks!

Might as well ask here. When I delete one build and install another, should I erase all the associated files in ~/Library? Is there a risk of performance problems when you use the preferences of an older unofficial build?

There is no need to delete your profile or cache in "~/Library" folder, unless you want to start from scratch, of course!

So there is no risk of incompatibility that affects performance? Okay, I'll trust that.

Still trying to figure out what causes lag, you see (0 luck on that front).

I am convinced this is Twitter's scam to force me to change to Chrome or Firefox, since the video in question would load, then disappear upon full load.

There are known issues with twitter videos tracked in Issue #932 (UXP).
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

See Issue #932 (uxp).
