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.

This was fast. Not surprised though, I expected excellence.

And why is it, every time I (re)install a new version, the browser feels a lot more snappier for a good while? (for reference, I always keep the same session that I restore on launch)

Thanks, wicknix! Working great on 2012 MacBook Pro, 10.11. Seems noticeably faster.

Agree. Other than the private browsing window title bar not displaying text, it's 99.9% functional. I feel it's pretty much on par with the Linux builds otherwise. What else do you think we need other than mac.palemoon.org and testing the update feature to make it happen?

Damn it.. I thought that was fixed.

Well because you didn't report to me you don't know about --disable-personas which works around the OTHER issue we were having.

There was some site where I found a larger Mac icon for (official) Pale Moon, but I cannot remember where that was. I was hoping to find one that is 1024x1024 pixels, which is the largest size for Mac icons starting with Yosemite. Where is there a large Mac Pale Moon icon available for downloading?

1024x1024 is a ridiculous size for an icon.

The largest I've seen for common Mac usage has always been 384x384 for the "x2" version for HiDPI. Normal being 192x192.

The large icon I have currently is 512x512. That was the largest icon size for MacOS from Leopard to Mavericks.
