    You're not the only one.
    Palemoon is a gentleman's choice, hence the low user base.

    You are not alone. I'm proud to be listed on the donations page. Pale Moon was my favorite browser in Windows and now Linux.

    FYI, you can continue using the Intel Atom build on XP.

    Pale Moon support for Windows XP is still ongoing through 3rd party contributed build.
    Note: This version build will be discontinued when the last retail NT 5.x product goes EoL in July 2015.

    As mentioned the Atom version of Pale Moon will continue.

    I'm using it on Puppy Linux since it's pre-installed, that's about it.

    When it comes to Palemoon,
    do all Firefox add-ons work without a problem?

    I was a number 1 Pale Moon fan until they decided to move away from the Firefox builds and be on their own, breaking half the websites I visit and all addons now do not work unless you download their pseudo modified addons like for ABP, etc. which doesnt work to my liking. the updates are slow to the addons. I then just install Firefox with Classic Theme restorer and hope Pale Moon gets buried under the sand ASAP

    Version 25 brought several compatibility issues, but after some updates (we are at 25.2.1 now) many were solved.
    Most FF add-ons work with Palemoon, others are forked and you can find them here.

    I use Palemoon as my number 1 browser, no problem with website breakage or add ons - works absolutely fine here.

    I have used Palemoon for a number of years. But since the last few updates a lot of extensions do not work and I have moved back to FF which I used before Palemoon. The main reason I switched to Palemoon from FF was because of 64bit option. Using that along with ABP I noticed the memory was quite high in some of the websites I use. I was advised to move back to the 32bit version which would lessen the memory which I did and it did indeed solve the memory issue. Then came the resent updates and the extensions such as ABP would not working properly, only in static form and yes I know about Adblock Latitude. I wanted to try out µBlock and that was another bust in Palemoon and not sure if Ghostery works. So, since I was using the 32bit anyway, I decided to go back to FF. I still use Palemoon 64bit portable though, with no extensions but for NoScript which I use for certain websites.
    In conclusion I well say that I liked Palemoon and I have nothing negative to say about it other than that some of the extensions will not work with it. For my everyday browsing, for now I will use FF.

    EDIT. Just to add, I use both browsers in Sandboxie, FF and Palemoon Portable.

    Was a PM user for 3 years without any problems at all - preferred it due to the removal of unecessary features and not getting caught up in the Fx update cycle race.

    Would still be using it if it wasn`t for the fact I recently wanted to test uBlock so had to find an alternative, which happened to be CyberFox which also seems very good.

    (I could have both but only use one browser at any one time, otherwise PM would be still installed.)

    Am a Pale Moon user since abt Sept 2011 and is my backup browser of Firefox. All my 11 extensions work perfectly although I had to switch to ABL instead of ABP and have to use an older version of Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar to make it work. If for any reason RBT would fail in the future I'd have to say goodbye to PM.

    PaleMoon is my 2nd browser. The extensions that I use all work with it. I'm quite happy with it. It's just that I like SeaMonkey more.

    Been using Palemoon since 2012. I briefly got rid of the browser in December 2014 due to weird stuttering delays when launching – but resolved this recently by re-installing and re-configuring from scratch. (issues caused by problems in the browser profile)

    Palemoon is my lone 64 bit browser (I use multiple browsers, eg; Firefox (default) Seamonkey, Icedragon and Lunascape)

    Pale Moon has been working well for me. Runs great with Sandboxie and extensions like NoScript and
    Request Policy. Flagfox still works through addons.mozilla.org and there may be others that may work without going through Pale Moon addons which are limited.

    I've been a Firefox guy for a long, long time. I never could warm up to Chrome and, at least in the beginning, I didn't like the way some add-ons (I'm looking at you, LastPass) were rendered in Chrome. And, quite honestly, I never understood the arguing between FF and Chrome users about which was better, and their absolute "for me or against me" stances. I have both installed and think they're both great even though I like FF better.

    On a whim, I recently decided to give Pale Moon a try. I must say I am quite surprised. it's blistering fast compared to both Firefox and Chrome on my Win7 64-bit system. And my two must-have add-ons work great, LastPass and Adblock [insert whichever here]. I discovered Pale Moon uses their own flavor, Adblock Latitude, which appears to be somewhat like Adblock Edge, and the filters install just fine from the EasyList site.

    It's a wonderful trip down memory lane, as well, with the old school Firefox UI. I like this browser a lot so far. Just thought I'd share. Of course, I'm sure someone will be along to tell me why I shouldn't use it. I'm all ears.
