    From the Dev of Pale Moon:

    Pale Moon 26.0 and later will not run on POSReady2009

    http://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=10831&sid=7c1285dc28122424668987eb9a3dc1fc


    You will most likely have to delete the POS registry entry in order to install Pale Moon
    26 (Atom version) to work on Windows XP. I'm not sure if the POS updates would also have
    to be uninstalled as well.
    If that doesn't work revert back to an earlier image backup before you applied the POS reg tweak.

    Out of topic, and sorry for this: from a ''paranoid'' point of view, just wondering if Pale Moon can be trusted? From the MoonchildProduction.info website the all Pale Moon project is run by a single person Mr. M.C. Straver. That's all, no additional info, no phone, no offices no nothing. I'm not a developer but I wonder how can a single person run a complex project like Pale Moon? I mean is a freaking web browser, with thousand lines of code and stuff, not a simple color picker. :D

    You really should visit the pale moon forum and your queries will be answered.Pale moon is run by a community of volunteers pretty much like the opensource community if you like.The developer is very transparent about issues.

    Just an additional comment.
    In regard to linux mint which is a operating system only one man puts his name on that.I just wonder if henry ford experienced the same level of paranoia when he first introduced his ford motor car...?

    Just a thought.

    Pale Moon 26.0.02 Released
    02.03.2016


    Whats New
    Removed the sanity check for unsupported point-of-sale XP-based operating systems by user request.
    • Please see the forum for information on which operating systems we can reasonably support.
    • Changed the way "transparent" is handled in Goanna to improve transparent gradients using this keyword.
    • Made sure that dom.disable_beforeunload is predefined in about:config.
    • Fixed web compatibility issues with Youtube, Youtube Gaming, Yuku fora and Netflix.
    • Fixed web compatibility with Comcast/XFinity webmail and other sites or web applications that expect older JavaScript versions as default.
    • Reinstated the about:config warning by default.
    • Fixed 2 potential browser crashes.

    Security fixes:
    • Updated NSS to 3.19.4.1-PM to fix a potential UAF and CVE-2015-7575.
    • Crash fix: Prevented queueing multiple media sources that could lead to unsafe memory access.
    • Prevented unsafe memory manipulations in zip archives. (CVE-2016-1945) DiD
    • Prevented a potential buffer overflow in WebGL. (x64 only) (CVE-2016-1935) DiD
    • Updated the way binaries are code-signed. Not only does v26.0 use a new SHA256-signed digital certificate, but starting this version will also be signed with both SHA1 and SHA256 digest algorithms to satisfy later Windows' code-signing requirements.
    DiD This means that the fix is "Defense-in-Depth": It is a fix that does not apply to an actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem.

    Pale Moon v26.0.3
    02.06.2016
    • Changed our cookie gate to allow cookie names with spaces in them, to improve web compatibility.
    • Critical note: if your site uses cookie names with spaces in them, please consider moving away from doing that so you are no longer in the "grey" area of cookie behavior.
    • Changed the configuration of our XSS filter to address some known, harmless filter hits that have been reported.

    Added an advanced, active XSS (cross-site scripting) filter. Pale Moon will now check for
    XSS attacks and block XSS content in the resulting pages.

    How is it different from, e.g., NoScript's XSS filter? (Moonchild - Developer)


    Question was asked on PM forum about disabling NoScripts XSS filter.

    Answered by Moonchild (PM Dev)


    XSS filter has a number of preferences found in PM about:config to control it.
