Here is a quick portable version of 27.6.0a1.win32-git-20171004-61e3f2cfb (with lav dlls) based on Palemoon-Portable-27.5.0:

NewMoon-Portable-Roytam.rar (36.77MB) https://www.sendspace.com/file/elvhqp

 

+ A few small requests:

1. Could you change the default search engine from duckduck back to google?

2. Remove loading www.palemoon.org/firstrun.shtml on the first run

in "browser/branding/shared/pref/preferences.inc"

pref("startup.homepage_welcome_url","http://www.palemoon.org/firstrun.shtml");

3. Change default startup page from "start.palemoon.org" to about:blank

Links work for me.

Cheers and Regards

Thanks a lot for confirming but it is not working for me for some reason .

@roytam1 please can you strip your package with following mozbuild command on next release if you like. It will create a installer . It worked for me in sea monkey i don't know about Palemoon. 

mach installer

Edit: I found the issue for download . XP doesn't support TLS1.2 which rhost issue reason IDM cannot impart security connection.

Download Pale Moon unstable releases from https://www.palemoon.org/unstable, unzip the file with WinRAR or 7zip and exchange the content from the core folder. The files from the LAV Codec can also be copied directly into the core folder.

I think `mach package`will do?

and for chrome/IE on XP can't access HTTPS version of build storage site, it is nothing to do with TLS 1.2, but due to lack of SNI support in schannel.dll.
You can always use non-HTTPS version of links since it is CloudFlare-fronted site.

Schnannel update will fix it ?  I will try to make a patch for SNI support. In chrome xp can handle tls1.2?

Have you given an updated HTTPS proxy, just start ProxHTTPSProxy_PSwitch.exe and on the fly, all websites work with Chrome! :yes:

We have to take the specific code then fix bugs then add them into schannel.dll of xp by means of code cave.
