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.

Pale Moon for Mac updates

Post by SpockFan02 » 2020-04-02, 08:39

Hi all! It's an exciting day for Pale Moon on macOS, thanks to some recent changes being made:
Lootyhoof has updated the default theme to visually merge the titlebar with the highest toolbar (plus some tweaks to the search bar and forward button). Here's what it looks like:
New macOS default theme changes
New macOS default theme changes
And I fixed the history swipe bug. This feature has been broken for a while, but now you'll once again be able to navigate back and forward in page history with two finger swipe gestures on a trackpad.
You can check these things out in this build. (Do note that it should be considered unstable as Pale Moon 29 has not been released yet. Built from the most recent commit on the master branch.)

I don't see a dedicated "stop loading" button.

It's normally the same button as Reload, but you can split them by going into Customize and either putting a separator between them or switching their order so the Stop Button is on the left. I think there are also some extensions that can separate them. None of that is different than it has been.

Now that you mention theming, I noticed that in dbsoft's builds the color of the title bar sometimes blends with the rest of the browser and sometimes doesn't.

Also for some reason the improved theme didn't work on my end.

History swipe seems to work, although only after changing the trackpad gesture to use 3 fingers.
I'm starting to think these problems are caused by something in my profile folder, but launching the browser with a fresh profile ends with the same results.

This may be related you your trackpad settings. Back / Forward works here using two finger swipe gesture, although it is instant (I'd prefer a slightly animated version for user feedback).
