Basilisk on Mac OSX?

Support and discussions for the Apple Mac OSX builds of Pale Moon

Forum rules
Important note:
The Mac OSX version of Pale Moon is still very much in development. Your assistance in bringing this build to fruition is greatly appreciated, but you can expect there to be bugs and problems for a while yet!

Any specific bugs you find that don't have their own topic yet: please make a new topic; one bug per topic please to keep things organized.

Please also note that these builds are currently created by wicknix and Moonchild will likely not be able to provide insight or assistance due to lack of Mac hardware and OS/build knowledge for Mac.

Yes, it's possible. However the current branch breaks packaging and can only be run on the build machine. I did manage to build an older branch where packaging still worked however. Just note its not as current as what they are working on, but it'll give you a good idea of things to come. The unofficial branding is Serpent in this build. Also note that this does not work on 10.6. This build works on 10.7 and above.

I guess you are using the "UXP" repo to build Basilisk, which is a work in progress. If you want a better Basilisk, try building from the "moebius" repo where I landed a few patches to specifically improve packaging on Mac. This repo is also more "current" in terms of feature set, and already well tried and tested.

moebius is deprecated and will be in maintenance mode as will Tycho in a few days.

Installed this on a friend's Mac, and it seems to be running great!

Hi, I'm new to this forum and I'd like to thank you for your time developing Serpent.
I'm just facing a minor issue when I right-click on something (it happens twice out of three): the context menu appears for just a few moments and, before I can left-click, it automatically selects the function being pointed by the cursor.
Is there any solution to fix this?
Thanks

Are there any newer OSX builds floating around?
I would like to use one that has pale moon's sync.
Thanks!

yes I see, but with the previous version I could synchronize with the Firefox browser on my other PC. I'm sorry if I'm annoying you.

Hello,

I'm interested in the file too. But it looks like my antivirus is blocking the download (tried to disable the antivirus, but it still has the same message about malware file, tried to clear the cache and cookies - the same; it's been happening with all files lately). Could you please share it via email? Here's my email address: che (dot) utexas (at) gmail (dot) com

Thank you,
Joseph

Only Mozilla Firefox is allowed to use FxA-based Sync. Mozilla is actively trying to block 3rd parties. As FxA is totally less secure than Weave-based Sync and given active resistance and policy from Mozilla, it's dead and gone from Basilisk. We're done.

Basilisk going forward will have a pure weave-only sync client and uses the Pale Moon Sync Service (or any weave-based server) and CAN sync most items between Pale Moon as well. (Exceptions being toolbars. Sometimes personas.. Needs looked into.)

tl;dr We're not "Modern" Mozilla, get over it.

EDIT: Yes, the text in my signature changes semi-regularly and yes, this post prompted one ;)
