Hi,

 

Thanks for the update, but how do I update my installation of the last build? by simply overwriting

the profile folder? and, would that be all and perfectly safe?

 

Regards.

dropping new files over old files should be fine for updating palemoon/basilisk.

basilisk is a testbed of (in-development) next Goanna(4) engine, basically it is something like Firefox-55.0a1(Firefox 53 alike) browser.

Hi. thanks a lot for your XP-Mod of Pale Moon. The overall performance is great. I use your New Moon 27.7.0a2 Build 20180106013833. My platform is Windows XP Professional 32Bit. The german localization file 27.7.0_RC5 doesn't work properly. In preferences of New Moon the security tab is empty. Can you confirm this behavior? Using en-US default no problems. Is this an effect due to your modifications? Thanks in advance and best regards

Go to the folder Palemoon -> Browser and unzip the omni.ja file. Go to the folder chrome -> en-US -> locale -> browser -> preferences. Copy the security.dtd file to the Desktop. Open in Notepad. Replace english language with german language. Paste and replace this file in your language location.

just wanted to ask if it were possible that u could:

1. make NewMoon update automatically

2. make NewMoon a program that actually gets installed on a computer, not a 7z file that has to be extracted.

3. ditch the weirdly sized window buttons in ur latest build

anyway keep up the great work! I, along with tons of other people, really appreciate the work that u have put into this browser.

-create ur own website designated towards updating people on new things. Kind of like this page but just more organized

I think roytam1 doesn't like automatic updates but I may be incorrect on that. The subject came up either here or over at the K-Meleon forum.

I hope he keeps it as is ... I like updating each item myself, I get to see what changes were made. It takes me less than five minutes to update everything. I have no problem with downloading a 7z file ... WinRAR opens it quickly.

Not sure what weird windows you are talking about ... I see nothing wierd in my setup.

I hope things stay as they now are ... it's a good simple working browser for Windows XP. Maybe try the newer K-Meleon browser that he is working on ... you could probably customize that to your liking. I also use that roytam1 KM version.

Who needs anything more for WinXP ?

I vote to keep this browser as it is ... simple, lean and clean.

hey, by "weirdly sized buttons" I mean the buttons in the top right, as in (exit, minimize etc.) the buttons are bigger than the default windows xp size. Also, what I mean by automatic updates is that you would get a notification but u could choose whether to install it or not. And if u choose "no" then u can always go into the settings and there will be a list of all the updates u have missed and can then install if u want. just an idea.

Thanks for your picture of the buttons ... I don't have that setup at all. Those top right buttons are small or normal in my setup. They match exactly what I have setup in the K-Meleon browser.

I use the Klassic skin in the KM browser ... it gives the feel or look of WinXP. I'm not sure why you have those buttons, I never saw them before in New Moon. Maybe there is a size setting in 'about:config'. I admit, I don't care for those buttons either.

Maybe someone else can be of help. I just don't want a whole bunch of changes made to New Moon ... except for the 'better' of course, but it's a good browser now, better than Pale Moon, just my opinion.

People want a name change also but I happen to like New Moon.
