Pale Moon 27.9.4
Pale Moon is a Firefox-based web browser for Microsoft Windows, Android and Linux (with other operating systems in development) that is focused on efficiency and ease of use. The application is Open Source and free to use. Pale Moon offers you a browsing experience in a browser completely built from its own source with carefully selected features and optimizations to maximize the browser's speed, stability and user experience, whilst maintaining compatibility with thousands of Firefox extensions.
KEY FEATURES INCLUDE:
- Familiar, efficient, fully customizable interface with smooth and speedy page drawing and script processing.
- Support for Pale Moon exclusive extensions and themes and extensive support for HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL.
- Support for many Firefox extensions (add-ons) and themes. Pale Moon is able to import existing Firefox profiles with the migration tool.
System Requirements: Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8/Server 2008 or later. A processor with SSE2 support. 256 MB of free RAM. At least 150 MB of free (uncompressed) disk space.
Updated the useragent for addons.mozilla.org to work around their "Only with Firefox" discrimination preventing users from downloading themes, old versions of extensions, and other files with Pale Moon.
Restricted web access to the moz-icon:// scheme that could potentially be abused to infringe the user's privacy.
Prevented various location-based threats.
Fixed a potential vulnerability with plugins being redirected to different origins.
Improved the security check for launching executable files (by association) on Windows from the browser. For users who have (most likely accidentally) granted a system-wide waiver for opening these kinds of files without being prompted, this permission has been reset.
Fixed an issue with invalid qcms transforms.
Fixed a buffer overflow using the computed size of canvas elements.
Fixed a use-after-free when using focus().
Added some sanity checks on nsMozIconURI.
Fixed an issue in the case the preferences file in the profile would not be writable (e.g. temporary permission issues due to backup, virus scanning or similar external processes).
