Pale Moon 28.8.0

Support and discussions for the Apple Mac OS X builds of Pale Moon
Forum rules
Important note:
The Mac OSX version of Pale Moon is provided by various people and is not official or in any way organized at this moment. Your assistance in bringing this build to fruition is greatly appreciated, but you can expect there to be bugs and problems as long as we don't have a maintainer or official builds!

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 various independent Mac OS X people and not by our core team; core devs will likely not be able to provide insight or assistance due to lack of Mac hardware and OS/build knowledge for Mac. You'll have to solve the issues among yourselves.

Get on the winning team and use multiple browsers.

I use Waterfox and Palemoon.

Now, on-topic for this.

I'm actually pretty sad that this is the way Mac versions have to be announced and updated. I've been looking forward to being able to announce official Mac builds finally being there, but for all the people building various versions as-needed "because nobody else did it this time" there's been no structure or real effort to have official support on the Mac platform.

I was hoping that of the various people who have built Mac versions so far at least one would be willing to put on the maintainer hat and actually work with me to make official builds happen. Someone who is willing to offer a longer-term commitment of building and releasing mac versions. But no such thing has happened thus far.

Is there no-one then who is wanting to take on this role? None of the past builders? No-one new who will do this?
If the answer is still a resounding no or deafening silence, I guess I'll have to change our roadmap.

I can do builds, troubleshoot, document, and identify bugs; I have time, and I'm very interested in being part of the solution but I'm not the right guy for the main role. It would take me too long to learn the ins and outs of the mozilla code, and I've tried previously (!). So if you're looking for a team of people, count me in.
Nothing to say here.

Many many thanks SpockFan02 :thumbup:

I'd probably give up on using my MacBook if I couldn't use Pale Moon in native form.

Well, once more I come across the "media won't play just cuz" problem:
https://twitter.com/splaffinator/status ... 6529228805

When in Discord, and having the link embedded, it plays just fine. So it's a Palemoon issue.

Looks like this is a glitch, not a bug. It plays fine now, I don't know what randomly made it unplayable before.

[bug]Found a video that refuses to play:[/bug]
https://www.bitchute.com/video/BVJqnQFfoYo/

According to the comment section, and I am quoting: "Palemoon is an archaic Firefox clone that doesn't have the necessary media codecs for web-torrent videos". Is that true though? Is there a codec lacking?

For the record, many other people are having issues with no playback. But just as many do not.

From the video's comment section:
This video is being used to live-test adaptive bitrate p2p, check out the extra buttons. Thanks to Styx for agreeing to let us test on his video.
And one more but there are many there all reporting varied results:
Video stoppages every 10-60 seconds with almost constant audio distortions using any of the available quality options. Significantly higher, 2 to 3 times, cpu usage sometimes maxing out the CPU. Same system plays 'normal' Bitchute videos flawlessly.

Raspberry Pi 3
OS Raspbian 9.9 (32 bit)
Chromium v.72.0.3626.121
In conclusion: This is Not a Pale moon issue
