Yes well, one of the problems that arose today is that a dialog popped up that to the average user might suggest that No-script is malware, rather than a tool for preventing it.
This dialog took the liberty of de-activating a plugin which I installed, and all I needed to do to restart 100 tabs without it was brush against the spacebar.
Do I understand the practical side of saying that this plugin is unsupported? Yes. That part is fine.
No-script is designed to break some functionality that some people may not consider neutral, but I don't take issue with the fact that it is unsupported in Pale Moon.
I take issue with the fact that I consider Firefox and increasingly unsuitable browser, I have generally considered Pale Moon to be a replacement which does not do the same dubious, arrogant or foolish things to take options and power (and responsibility) away from the user, and not because of this decision but *because of the way this decision is implemented* (with scare language and attempting to automatically disable things I installed. YOU didn't install that plugin) I am now between not being able to recommend Firefox to anybody--
and because of the implementation, not the decision itself, I am also extremely reluctant to recommend Pale Moon to anybody either. I cannot recommend ANY web browser to anybody.
Seriously. What the heck is happening to software design lately?!
Further decisions like this and there will be cause to fork Pale Moon. Aw heck, there will be further decisions like this. Time to fork Pale Moon! (Darn you, darn you, darn you for this.)
