Please use the issue tracker on GitHub for the version you are using. We prefer not to have bug reports and support topics for these versions in this forum since they are third-party ans do not have our support. I'll be more than happy to direct people to a better place like their own forum (wink wink nudge nudge) if they actually care to set one up, but for the moment nothing of the sort is available, so the github tracker is what you'll have to use..

Thanks a lot.

To Your answer:
perhaps under ´Development (discussion)´ You can make a topic
"Pale Moon fork XP - Support-Links" or/and for similar and this can be made to ´Sticky´.

And the version names and numbers to which support-link, please. (Then all is for in one view.) Thanks.

I need more detailed assistance, PLEASE.

I have tried for SEVERAL weeks on building a New Moon version 28.2.2 for WinXP and the instructions are simply NOT detailed enough for a first-time beginner.


Can anybody please offer some more precise details on just HOW to compile a New Moon version 28.2.2 ???
I realize that we have RoyTam New Moon releases each and every week and we have Feodor Mypal releases - but I would really like to build my own version.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We do not support Windows XP on a base code level so even if we provided hand-holding class of support for building yourself, which we don't, we cannot support building for Windows XP in any form.

Please don't come back until you use an operating system and target that isn't older than a decade.

Good day, sir.

That is because the user has not been back since registering and making their post. I also doubt their e-mail address is actually being checked or being anything more than a sham, considering the domain is a parked domain and email addresses at that domain are primarily used by shell accounts on fora and on websites for creating new accounts that have 1 or 2 posts before being abandoned.

Just having mail from a parked domain is already suspect and grounds for banning, but I tend to err on the side of caution.

Thanks a lot these infos.

A parked domain ..., then he might have received my mail ...
I just had to wonder about not receiving the copy (of my mail), already.
OK. So what.
