I took a look at the list of sites Palefill fixes in this file and GMX mail is not one of the sites Palefill fixes, therefore installing Palefill will have no effect on this specific site.

I would suggest possibly opening an issue on the Palefill GitHub issue tracker asking them if they can add support for GMX in the Palefill extension.

@ cartel

If you "need" GMX webmail because you have an account with them and it does not work anymore using the newest Pale Moon version, then you realistically have only one choice and that is to use another one of GMX's "approved" browsers.

And it is obvious to me GMX is not going to accommodate Pale Moon. This is the long and short of it.

Yes, they have made abundantly clear they only want telemetry/data-gathering browsers on their webmail service. They are totally unresponsive to communication from me or Pale Moon users other than saying "Use Chrome".

I personally would not use such a service, because e-mail is supposed to be private. if a webmail interface requires a client that sends usage data 9anonymized or not) back to the vendor while you are working on private mail, then that is pretty bad. Same reason why I don't trust working with my e-mail in a web interface that displays third-party ads right next to your private communication -- it's much too easy for your private mail content to get exposed.
