MEGA Extension for Pale Moon

Unread post by Macca » 2018-11-26, 20:58

In case anyone is interested, MEGA is apparently officially supporting Pale Moon now:

It won't even install under Pale Moon v28.*.
And under v27.* it shows a red dot.

It specifies strict compatibility. But it did install for me when:

\install.rdf (line 13)

Code: Select all

<em:strictCompatibility>true</em:strictCompatibility>
was changed to

Code: Select all

<em:strictCompatibility>false</em:strictCompatibility>
I've never used this extension though, and can't speak to how well it works.

(Oh, I suspect that that monstrosity of an extension doesn't actually work in PM.

PS: There is a difference between "claiming" support & actually having it.)

They likely think we are just Firefox or Waterfox with different branding and ctr and added a targetApplication block without bothering to actually run Pale Moon let alone trying to install and use the extension.

They didn't even bother to do that.

Then it isn't a Pale Moon extension and thus just meaningless lies.

Has anyone tried to contact them? It seems that they even have a bug report email (https://mega.nz/contact). I just send them a quick note, maybe someone else wanna join the party? It could increase our chances to get it fixed, more voices -> more reaction

Done. But I won't get my hopes up. Not after the negative responses I got from other developers regarding PM compatibility. :|

Surprisingly, they responded:
We have already forwarded the issue to our developers and the fix will be include in our next release.

We are sorry for the inconvenience. If you require any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact us.

Have a MEGA-awesome day!
We'll see

Confirmed. Version 3.47.7 is compatible with PM 28. The file size stated on the webpage is still wrong though.

Issues I have with this..

1) It's "Pale Moon" not Palemoon
2) Target Application Block for Pale Moon has minVersion 24.0 when the first version with our GUID was minVersion 25.0.0
3) Target Application Block for Pale Moon has maxVersion of 55.* which is ridiculous considering strictCompatiblity is still on for no real reason.
D) SeaMonkey isn't very supported at all only 2.21 (gecko/24.0) to 2.29 (gecko/31.0) which is ridiculous as well
π) The XPI File has the word "Legacy" in it

Well, every developer out there refers XUL extensions as "legacy".

Update: Shit. Logging in with the extension enabled now turns up a blank page. These MEGA developers are trolls.

Not so much trolls as lazy and/or incompetent. I still don't think they have once loaded up Pale Moon or been to our site or forum which explains the wrong versons and incorrect name of our browser.

Alright so I sent them another email, because why not? I like nagging people.
Thank you for your support and for using MEGA!
The fix will be deployed in a future update release.
Please re-try in the next several weeks.

Still has the blank-page issue, at least with 3.59.1 and 28.5.0.

The "extension" is crap. (cannot be called an extension when it does not even work update after update). Instead I'm now using their sync client for uploading files to my account.

I love when 6 month old threads are bumped especially when the issue has nothing to do with us.

Nothing? It's certainly a point of interest, isn't it? One of the few sites in the world name-checking this browser specifically for a given extension...and it doesn't work?

Inquiring minds want to know. Sorry if giving a status update was bothersome to you.
