More and more "modern" websites no longer work in PaleMoon

Unread post by DavidP » 2019-10-18, 14:19

For example, just switching the Google account gets stuck and loads forever:

Other examples don't occur to me right now, but it happens more and more often that pages don't load in PaleMoon, which is why I then use Google Chrome instead for these pages.

I shall add more corresponding incidents here as they happen.

Thanks

On a fresh PM portable, I can switch google accounts just fine. The problem might be on your side, but without more information, those who could help can't really.

If you're looking for help with your broken sites, you want to post in General Support, not General Discussion. and also include the required information for people to be able to assist you. If you want to simply complain about PM then well..
Off-topic:
If I had a penny for every new user who simply says that 'it doesn't work' without even providing a link to the site in question for starters..

I moved it here from General Support because the post didn't ask for specific support; it just made a statement/gripe, at most a discussion-opener.

I've seen people just make a one off post saying it doesn't work - without providing either the URL in question or any troubleshooting info - then they'll go on r/palemoon and gripe about how the developers of this browser are unhelpful and 'toxic'.

I should be happy if the problem were at my end, because my productivity would be KILLED, would I have to quit using Pale Moon and tons of invaluable XUL addons, first and foremost the legendary SearchWP.

I was just going to state that for example, Linkedin.com has stopped working in Pale Moon months ago -- but just gave it a try on another PC, and sure enough, it worked there.

So I'll try to figure out why it wouldn't work on my main PC and then report back.

"More and more "modern" websites no longer work in PaleMoon"

So... you provide ONE example. Of a website that works. And you get the browser name wrong.

That title is in serious need of editing. :D
