I've been using 64 bit, Windows version of Pale Moon for some time with no such issue that I have since the lauch of version 28.
Pale Moon crashes immediately at launch since the very first 28th version.
I have tried a fresh install, and the portable version too, which makes me think that the add-ons are not the problem.
I have also tried running as Administrator.
All the following sub-versions after 28.0.0 also crashed at lauch.
I have found out since, that the 32 bit portable version does Not crash, and starts successfully. But since Pale Moon memory usage commonly goes above 5GB, I am hesitant to switch to the 32 bit version.
EDIT: The problem in my case was using old version (5) of Comodo Internet Security. (See Moonchild's post further below.)
So I am curious whether this symptom tells you anything, if it actually would already have a workaround (besides a VM), or if there is any hope seeing this fixed in the coming versions.
Thanks in advance for your time!
