Pale Moon version 24.7.0 has been released with security fixes, including DiD* patches.

*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.

This is a major update to address most of the media streaming issues users have had.  In addition, the update includes enhancements, bug fixes and security fixes to the browser.

To get the update now, select "Help" from the Pale Moon menu at the upper left of the browser window.  Select About Pale Moon > Check for Updates.

Pale Moon Version 24.7.1 released.  It is a small update to address some media and web compatibility issues.

Changes/fixes:
  • Fixed an issue where media playback would not use hardware acceleration properly when using MSE.
    This would cause high CPU usage and/or choppy playback for HD video on e.g. YouTube.
  • Fixed ES6 iterator chains to be spec-compliant.
  • Fixed ES6 vector append calls and some related memory leaks.
  • Added a workaround to reduce the likelihood of a potential rare (timing-critical) crash.
Linux versions will follow shortly.
