My build of New Moon (temp. name) a.k.a. Pale Moon fork targetting XP

and they're making something ugly in {their-prefix}/blob/a541fcbacbc92015c5969234a9b666db318ab88d/communicator/modules/Communicator.jsm#L35

since I'll make a source fork for that, these ugly thingy will be changed ;)

depends on upstream

Once I get the branding issues sorted out on my side, proper generic branding, my branding, and proper separation of the remaining bits of branding that weren't somehow done in the past 10 years over at the SeaMonkey Project.. Give me time.. Besides, you shouldn't be using the navigator anyway.. It isn't even finished.

I already got rid of that. Nothing to see here, move along. Also, you can direct-link. :)

since my binaries are marked "Test", I think people can always test how does navigator/other applications finish (like the old Mozilla M{numbers} ages, and those binaries are still lying in their release FTP site) (If people want something "stable", then they should use Feodor2's binaries instead ;) )

That is fine and all.. But when it hasn't even been released it is in flux a lot more than continued development on an already release product. Also, as pointed out before, there is the possibility of not everything being legally cleaned up never mind the potential for data loss or corruption.

I am currently using 'uBlock Orgin firefox-legacy-1.16.4.8 - gorhill Jan 26, 2019' ... with New Moon and Basilisk. If a newer legacy version is released ... I just run it with the older version in place and it updates to the newer version.

I don't quite understand why a person would need this updater - Ublock origin legacy updater 1.6.7 ( Basilisk ). Is this another actual 'legacy version' different from the gorhill versions?

My latest updated uBlock Orgin firefox-legacy-1.16.4.8 seems to be working OK.

...

Legacy version 1.16.4.9 of uBO is available. Appears to be a cosmetic fix with positioning the uBO button in the toolbar.

I think the idea is, it's supposed to update you to the next legacy version whenever gorhill releases one. If you just use Serpent's own auto-update it will keep updating you to 1.17.4 (Serpent 52) or the current WE version (Serpent 55), so without it, you just have to turn auto-update off.

I had mixed success with uBO Updater. It worked a treat in Serpent 55, offering 1.16.4.9 vs. 1.18.4 (or whatever the most recent stable version is). But in Serpent 52 it didn't offer me an update at all. Had to go into the releases at Github and download/install 1.16.4.9 manually.

Edit: This is probably related to the upstream changes made to Basilisk, to check for updates at addons.basilisk-browser.org vs addons.mozilla.org, but uBO Updater is supposed to intercept those checks anyway :unsure:

@roytam1 Ok.. I have maybe hopefully resolved the unofficial branding situation with the navigator.. Any further mentions of Borealis in the application or package are either for profile compatibility reasons so your users aren't screwed, due to the mozilla build system, or something I missed or need to further change.

These aspects I will not hold you responsible for. So you can start producing your builds again. Do keep in mind I am still changing stuff so your buildablity may vary.

what is TMP ? session manager ?

I have a similar addon installed on FF only and it's very helpful

looks like the sessionstore file content has been wiped...(Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\....)

sometimes I have more than 50 tabs open at once and I thought Palemoon was not afected by this FF issue

fortunately I have recently been using all those tabs so I will try to restore them from the 'history'

While I certainly have some differences of opinion with Tobin, MC, and the rest of the PM team, I do want to express my sincere gratitude for their work! In particular, it's nice to have browsers that work with modern Web sites, but that don't employ the "walled garden" strategy of Chrome and Mozilla, requiring every add-on and the like to get a digital signature from the "powers that be."

I understand that Chrome & Mozilla are trying to guard against malware, but the potential for abuse of "walled gardens" is clear, especially when Google or Mozilla has different interests than the add-on developer (as we've seen with the recent flap about Chrome threatening to break uBO).

Remember that PM, and hence NM, were derived from FF, so they are likely to share many of the same bugs (another example being the 23-minute YouTube bug).

Also, 32-bit browsers can run out of addressable RAM with many tabs open. If you can't run a 64-bit version, forcing e10s (multiprocess mode) can help with FF or Serpent, but that's not an option with PM or NM.
