Pale Moon has been updated to Version 27.1.  The update is a major development update.  Also included are bug fixes as well as security and privacy updates.  Many of the security updates are DiD* patches.

Of note: Version 27.1 introduces the so-called "PMkit" modules, Pale Moon's effort to restore most compatibility with Firefox Jetpack/SDK extensions and making it possible for extension developers to convert their Firefox SDK extensions with little effort to a Pale Moon compatible format.

*DiD stands for "Defense-in-Depth" and is a fix that does not apply to an actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem.

Pale Moon Version 27.1.1 Released:

This is a small bugfix and stability update to the browser.

Changes/Fixes:

  • Implemented  a fix in media handling to prevent crashes with concurrent videos  and/or rapidly starting/stopping video playback in the browser.
  • Fixed  the way the Adobe Flash plugin is detected to prevent confusion with  other plugins that identify themselves as "Flash" (e.g. VLC).
  • Windows: Solved stability issues caused by the release build process, resulting in unexpected behavior (e.g. hangups).

Pale Moon updated to 27.1.2!:

Quote

Pale Moon has been updated to 27.1.2, a minor update with a single workaround fix that should prevent hangs for some users on sites with many media elements (e.g. Facebook, YouTube, etc.).

This is a workaround; we are still working on providing a more proper fix to this issue rooted in Mozilla code.
