I have been running the latest Pale Moon and I confirm my issue is rectified. I have watch many new movie trailers on YouTube in HD and no issues. Thanks to alien bob for the package and PM for the update. I'm a happy camper now.

Yeah I'm guessing that Palemoon is written by Windows developers and GNU/Linux compilability is an afterthought. Actually, it simply would not compile on GCC when I tried it some time ago. Gave up on it.

For fast browsing needs, like browsing HTML manuals and such, Dillo and Lynx do a fantastic job, depending on content.

Otherwise selectively enabling JavaScript on Firefox helps as well. That also helps reveal the more sinister face of the modern web. i.e. pages that refuse to deliver content unless you run their obfuscated code on your machine.

ok, i've been using palemoon on archlinux for quite a while now.
the arch user repository has a precompiled package (palemoon-bin) and a source package (palemoon).
i have been using the source package for a long time now.
updates are fairly frequent, the compiling always takes a long while, but has never failed so far.
palemoon works just fine and dandy here.

just my 2ct.
