From End of services for old versions (previous milestones):

Since we've been on the current milestone 27 for almost a year now, and  we can't keep supporting all versions forever, we'll be ending services  for old versions soon.

This means in practice:
  • The  internal updater will no longer offer notifications or automatic updates  to the browser if you are still on 26.* or below. Please make sure to  upgrade as soon as possible.
    After this ends, the way to upgrade will be using the installer of the latest version of Pale Moon.
  • End  of special-casing for Windows XP users. We'll be cleaning up the update  process and website to remove special information pages etc.
  • The  (ancient) Android version of Pale Moon will be removed (unpublished)  from the Play Store. The only way to still get this unsupported version  of the browser will be by side-loading the APK from the archives, if you  need it. Please note that continuing to use this very old version of  the browser bears a considerable security risk.
  • We will no longer provide blocklist updates for previous milestones.
