The The Restaurant at the Edge of the Universe, previously known as The Water Cooler, is a place to post stuff that has absolutely nothing at all to do with computers, broadband, Scot's Newsletter, or anything that's "supposed" to be here.
Above the water (yes, this is real.)
Things happen to my neighbor that I have never seen before (and I have seen plenty of screwups.)
He has an HP laptop hooked up to a big ASUS Tuf gaming monitor. Then the big monitor stopped working. I turned everything off, checked the HDMI cable. Turned the monitor back on, made sure the right connector protocol was active, got a diagnostic screen but when the laptop was booted, no display. I could not even detect the large monitor in the display options.
So I went into the device manager, discovered that the AMD graphics adapter was disabled, and the laptop was using Microsoft generic graphics. I re-enabled the AMD graphics, but they were still faulty. So I uninstalled the graphics adapter, restarted the laptop and presto! The big monitor started working again. How the AMD graphics got corrupted I do not know.
Pale Moon has been updated to version 32.5.1. This is a minor development and security update.
Important: as of this version, our beta FreeBSD binaries require at least FreeBSD 13.
Restricted protocol fallback for TLS. Pale Moon no longer (by default) allows TLS 1.3 to fall back to earlier protocol versions during the initial handshake. Reverted the addition of browser.bookmarks.openInTabClosesMenu due to behavioral issues with menus.
If you desire the intended behavior, please use an extension instead. We no longer support the data: protocol inside SVG's <use> statements. Enabled more validation/error checking for WebGL on Windows to prevent potential crashes. Improved secure context checking for iframes. Fixed the handling of relative paths in URLs starting with multiple forward slashes. Security issues addressed: CVE-2023-6204, CVE-2023-6210, CVE-2023-6209 and CVE-2023-6205 DiD UXP Mozilla security patch summary: 3 fixed, 1 DiD, 14 not applicable.
*DiD This means that a fix is "Defense-in-Depth": It is a fix that does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered.
Rejected security patches: This means that patches were theoretically applicable to our code but considered undesirable, which could be due to unwanted changes in behavior, known regressions caused by the patches, or unnecessary risks for stability, security or privacy.
Pale Moon includes both 32- and 64-bit versions for Windows: Pale Moon for Windows downloads.
