    Pale Moon v26.2.2 Released
    05.10.2016


    Changes & Fixes:
    • Added a detection routine for dark window colors on Windows 8 and later (system themes using dark window frames) to better adapt to dark system colors. Theme developers can take advantage of this by checking for darkwindowframe="true" on #main-window in CSS selectors.
    • CSS classes prefixed with "--" no longer stop parsing of the selectors.
    • Several crash fixes.
    Security Fixes:
    • Made GC suppression more aggressive to prevent issues when actually out of memory.
    • Fixed a memory safety hazard in jpeg decoding.
    • Fixed a potentially exploitable crash when using bi-directional text.
    • Updated NSS to 3.19.4.2-PM, fixing CVE-2016-1938 among other things.

    Pale Moon v26.3.0 Released
    06.21.2016


    Changes & Fixes:
    • Added detection for dark system themes on Windows 10 and re-worked Windows 10 specific theming to better integrate into the OS and provide more clarity.
    • HTML5 media controls have been reworked to a horizontal volume control on all media, including HTML5 audio that was previously without an element-control for volume.
    • Default HTML5 media volume preference added as media.default_volume -- fractional, default 1.0 (=100%).
    • String.prototype.match() and .replace() are now fully spec compliant.
    • NSPR and NSS now correctly no longer enforce IA32 architecture compatibility, getting the advantage of SSE2 like the rest of the code.
    • Worked around crashes in the XSS filter when navigating back in history due to document fragments.
    • Instated a hard minimum of 10,000 places entries regardless of free disk space and total memory to prevent undesired expiration of history. That is around 16MB for an average entry size, which should be sane enough even on low-memory machines.
    • Fixed a typo in networking code introduced in 26.2.2 that would cause issues on some sites due to adding extra forward slashes to the URL.
    Security fixes:
    • Fixed a number of memory safety hazards and potentially exploitable crashes.
    • Fixed CVE-2016-2821 Use-after-free in the mozilla::dom::Element class
    • Fixed netaddr deserialization for AF_UNSPEC and AF_LOCAL.
    • Fixed a memory overrun error in the VP8 encoder. DiD
    • Fixed non-threadsafe re-use of pixman images to prevent potential race conditions. DiD
    • Fixed CVE-2016-2825 Partial Same Origin Policy violation

    Pale Moon v26.3.2 Released
    06.27.2016


    Windows only
    This release only has pertinent changes for Windows. Other operating systems do not need this update.


    Changes & Fixes:
    • Fixed a rare issue where the browser would not initialize properly (missing bookmarks and menu entries) if certain Windows registry values were missing (Windows 8 only).
    • Fixed an issue on Windows 10 where the classic menu bar would become unreadable (white on white).
    • Portable only: Switched to non-compressed binaries to prevent issues with antivirus packages, to prevent issues with browser run-time operation, and to simplify code signing.

    Giving Palemoon another go. I see that I'm able to view HTLM5 videos in ESPN with the voice NOT being garbled now as was the case before. http://espn.go.com/nfl/ Looking good so far. :thumb:

    Gave it a good test in lot of websites and so far so good. (64 bit) If the ship is sailing in the North Sea, I won't be "jumpin' ship". Sailed it a few times and it's one rough sea.:cool: Just to add, I still have a "life boat" at the ready called Firefox, just in case. ;)

    FYI everyone, Pale Moon v27.0.0a2 (not recommended for everyday use; at your own risk) has been released and supports better parsing and playing of fragmented media files and much more up to par web standards.

    The only downside is add-on/extension Jetpack/SDK will be discontinued in this next re-base, though it's small impact on users, supposedly. See below:

    Although this may leave some of us at a disadvantage:
