Pale Moon - A firefox fork


Anyone else not liking the new firefox?
Here's a great alternative, that will seem very familiar: http://www.palemoon.org/

This is great. I've been using it the past day and it feels much more responsive on the heavy websites. So far i've installed my usual add-ons including lastpass, noscript, adblock, etc. It seems to be working great. Looks just like firefox before 4.x, including the seperate downloads window. From what i understand, the developers are applying upstream patches for various things. So it should be quite similar to the latest firefox in terms of page rendering and security.

Think this might be a replacement for firefox on my desktop.

First, Opera lost its mind. Now, Firefox is losing its mind.

I switched to Seamonkey instead. Good so far. We'll see where they go and maybe I'll switch again.

Try them all, I know I have, many times even. I've made my choice.

It doesn't seem to care for Debian Testing (amd64). Iceweasel runs with no problems. I'm using a 3.15-5.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64 kernel.
Here are the error messages:
