Another update? Sheeesh! Pale Moon is beginning to remind me of Adobe Flash. ;)

This update was due to a change in the YouTube user interface with the notice "We’ll stop supporting this browser soon. For the best experience please update your browser." when at the site.  The change resulted in an extremely long thread on the Pale Moon forum.  The fix provided was to update the general.useragent.overide for YouTube in About:config. 

 

Since it was affecting so many people, it was apparently decided to make make the change for everyone -- much better that way since not everyone is comfortable editing About:config. 

 

Related:  Facebook users are likely seeing the same message but it apparently hasn't resulted in causing issues as the YouTube change did.  To remove the banner with "We won't support this browser soon. For a better experience, we recommend using another browser. Learn More" on Facebook, it can be done by editing About:config. 

1.  Open a new tab and type about:config.  Accept the warning and then search for "Mozilla".

2.  In both "general.useragent.override.facebook.com" and "general.useragent.override.fbcdn.net", right click the "Value" and select "Modify"

3.  Replace what is shown in both with the following:


Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:62.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/62.0 (Pale Moon)

4.  Close About:config

 

Note:  to reverse the change, right-click the value and select "Reset".

Yeah, I was reading a bunch of posts here and there yesterday about the YouTube page changes.

 

Thanks again for keeping track of this stuff for us here at Scot's, Corrine! :)

I go to YouTube daily. I get the Mass readings for the day then there is a link for a video reflection about the readings.

I'm noticing since the change, YouTube seems to load really slow compared to Monday's load time.

 

Has anyone else noticed slower YouTube loading?

I haven't noticed anything in FF, but haven't been there too much in the last week or so, either.

Everything is slower in FF for me. That's why I switched to Palemoon as my daily browser.

 

I guess I could see how Vivaldi handles it.

Your FF is probably all impacted with corrupt ca-ca in your profile directory. You should just delete the Profile Directory and start FF up. It will create a new one for you. You will lose all your settings/customizations/extensions/bookmarks, though.

I'm using FF ESR. I download a new version about once a year. Truthfully, I don't want to create a new profile and lose everything. I prefer Palemoon to FF so FF can stay as is.

I tried Vivaldi on YouTube. It might be a scooch faster. It isn't worth firing up another browser. I'll just go to YouTube then go get a cup of coffee while it loads.

Especially if you drink as much coffee as I do!

Today I read some emails while the site was loading.

I just put Pale Moon on my main computer a few days ago. So far, so good.

I think I'm going to like it. Plays YouTube videos and that's important to me.

I have a pretty dated copy of FF on that machine which I refuse to update

because I would have to give up an extension I really, really like called

Session Manager. That thing will store a ton of sessions, and each session

might represent several hundred tabs open simultaneously. No don't go

there. I shouldn't have so many tabs open at one time. I know...
