Languages for Mac OSX

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.

How can I change language? Are language packs available for version 29?

There is no version 29 yet so no.
Is it that you have no idea where you are going or what you're supposed to be doing right now?
Or did you just assume when you saw that timer that something in this room is capable of turning it off?

I am looking at New Moon 29.0.0a5 but see no options in Preferences to change or install languages.

You have a problem with New Moon.
You are on the forum for Pale Moon.
If you have a problem with Google Chrome, do you go to the Mozilla forums to ask for help?

To be fair, they probably would know exactly what the problem is, since all that they do these days is copy Chrome code anyway. :P

Who is ignorant? I made a test build of Pale Moon and tagged it as unofficial. For all intents and purposes, it is Pale Moon source code (untouched).

You, when it comes to making a problem statement. If you want language support you ask for that search the forum for other people asking the same thing, not play Einstein by building browser from source and then asking where the option to set language is when that's NOT how it works.

You can instead build the release version which today will be 28.12 and then install the language packs from the link given above.

And you have the audacity and arrogance to always think that you are right because of what?

I asked a simple question and got responses from not one but several serial idiots. Thanks, but no thanks. I do not recommend this forum to any Internet user!

Mate, you did nothing of the sort. You were just your usual smart arsed self. You can make excuses for your self all you like and try to justify your pitiful intelligence until the cows come home. But you will always be known and remembered as as turd.

Let's look at it again, shall we?

You asked if there were language packs for 29 -

Anyone with at least one fold in their cerebellum would comprehend that there can't be language packs for a non existent stable release but you show up with non sequitur

and then things deservedly turned to shit for you. But yeah, sure, everyone else is to blame and that was such a smart arsed reply to your initial query.

Answer:
  • 29.* is in preproduction and not ready, and as such does not have published language packs (at most pre-release in-progress ones courtesy of JustOff)
  • "Setting the language " is done by installing language packs form the add-ons site as linked to above. if you build a release versions instead of unstable, install the accompanying language pack
  • We have pre-built Mac OS X binaries marked as New Moon posted on the forum because they are not official yet (the maintainers are not yet confident they can serve the Mac population properly with what they have now). This is a QA consideration. Pale Moon language packs should work on (those specific versions of) New Moon, but there are no guarantees at the moment since it is unofficial.
And that's all.
Locking this thread because you all act like a bunch of overexcited jocks who want to prove their right. Stop it.
