Pale Moon has been updated to Version 27.0.2, released as a DiD* patched update that fixes the crash at the root of CVE-2016-9079.  The update also includes usability fixes.

Also note that Firefox Compatibility mode has been by default for the useragent string.  This was necessary because sites, including Google, Apple and Microsoft, still use that method for determining "browser features".

    *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.
