Pale Moon 28.16.0

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.

Actually,
So after vanishing without a word to apparently spin off your own derivatives you come back here to make claims about Mac support and sow the seeds of discord about what we can/could/should support? With a note "don't bother replying, I'm back to my own corner and if you want me you can abandon what has been the foundation of my spinoffs"...?
You know, this is the very kind of thing that makes me want to give up on Open Source.

He was working on his old and insecure hack jobs well before I called him out on his BSD bullshit after slowly over months going dark. But yeah after 14 months to come back and do this only serves one purpose.

And in my opinion there really is only one true response.

Oh I can think of several, in fact, but most of those require physical proximity.
So the next best thing has been put into immediate effect.

Off-topic:
OS X 10.6
I get the feeling that from what I've read above the most secure browser for anyone running Snow leopard would be ParrotGeeks "Nightly" Branded Build of Firefox legacy?

I only run 10.6 in virtual machine currently, but I just use Firefox 48.0.2. Firefox Legacy there doesn't work right for me and it is only a few versions newer at 52.

I have not tried this out for 10.6 but it's good on PowerPC as said before. https://github.com/OlgaTPark/tenfourfox/releases

Thank you for the build, dbsoft. If it's not too much trouble, would you mind posting a checksum to accompany the download link, using shasum -a256, perhaps? Just so as to provide some means of determining that the content is exactly as it was at the time it left your build machine.

On another note, I have access to a machine running Big Turd^W Sur. At least for a time. If there is anything in particular that needs to be tested on that platform, I could give it a whirl.

I'll try to do that for future releases, and nothing specific needs to be tested, just make sure it shows as 10.16 or 11.0 when detected, and take note if something doesn't work that I haven't noticed yet. :)

I have noticed a couple of issues with big sur and Facebook not loading the feed. I did notice this on a couple of other sites too. I'll try and get some screen shots when I'm home later, let me know if you would like to see anything specific

These are specific to Big Sur? Or do they happen with Pale Moon on other OS versions?

Edit: I've been testing on Big Sur, Mojave and El Capitan and I don't see any issues with Facebook looking at my personal page. If you could post or private message screenshots of the issue that would be helpful.

I will check when I get home, but I think it was OK in lion and el capitan.

Interesting, I can't reproduce these problems on either of those pages on my end running Big Sur... can you open the Web Console from the menu Tools->Web Developer->Web Console.... on one of those pages... then reload the page and see if any errors show up on the Console or Network tabs?

Also maybe check if there is anything suspicious in the Tools->Web Developer->Error Console

Hope this helps, or at least shows if I have something wrong?

So I don't get those errors on the Facebook page and I don't get the storage instance error here on the start.me page.... I'm not sure what would cause them without doing some research, but is it possible to do this again with a fresh profile? I am wondering if something is screwed up with the profile or extensions on this computer/user. To do this you can enter in the URL bar:

Cool, so Creating a new profile and making it default sorted both those issues. :thumbup:
