Pale Moon updated to 28.5.2!

Unread post by Moonchild » 2019-06-05, 01:33

Pale Moon has been updated to 28.5.2, which is a bugfix update on top of 28.5.1 to fix a breaking issue.

Changes/fixes since 28.5.0:
  • Restored a global getBoolPref() function shortcut for extension compatibility with old extensions.
    If you are currently using this global function in your extension(s), please change it to Services.prefs.getBoolPref()
  • Fixed an issue with the UI when the address bar was removed from the navigation toolbar.
  • Fixed an issue with scripting of the Help menu.
  • Fixed a crash resulting from non-standard manipulation of XML stylesheets by extensions.
  • Fixed Aero Peek (taskbar previews) on Windows.
  • Fixed browser.link.open_newwindow functionality.
    Sorry, not yet! This will be in the next major update.
  • Removed the default handler for webcal since the site doesn't seem to be properly maintained.
  • Prevented some ways smart places queries could be abused for social engineering attacks.
  • Ported an upstream Skia fix.
  • Improved the origin-clean algorithm for canvases.
  • Improved the efficiency of certain types of memory allocations in the JavaScript compiler.
  • Changed the way the application update checker code is hooked up so it will not require a user to go idle before being activated.
    This solves the primary issue with application updates not notifying users as promptly as they should; more improvements are slated for the next major release.
  • Applicable security issues fixed: CVE-2019-7317, CVE-2019-11701, CVE-2019-11698, CVE-2019-9817 (DiD), CVE-2019-11700, CVE-2019-11696, CVE-2019-11693, and several potentially exploitable crashes and memory safety hazards that do not have a CVE number assigned to them.
  • v28.5.2: Fixed issues with image/texture allocation incorrectly being marked as insecure.

Correction to the release notes:

The point "Fixed browser.link.open_newwindow functionality" was premature -- this wasn't uplifted to this point release and will be in the next major update (in July).
