Goodbye Mozilla


Pale Moon 27.6.1 has pretty much solved my main issue with the chat buffer on youtube. I have completely removed Mozilla Firefox , along with SeaMonkey. Now I am just trying to get rid of Thunderbird; but getting Claws to import my Thunderbird mail is a pain.

Have you tried forwarding your mail from Thunderbird instead of importing? Set up Claws Mail to download the forwards once everything is setup. Pale Moon 27.6.2 is the last version for 2017.

Sounds like a complete PITA to do that, I have tonnes of messages kept. I saw python scripts to import contacts and convert the mailbox, but it doesn't work when I try to use it.

You could try to make an ugly symlink but don't tell anyone that I suggested that.

Of course the real solution is to rebuild Pale Moon against the new icu4c.
Rebuilt it from Slackbuilds and all seems well, so far. BTW,
there are two scripts at Sbo for Pale Moon. I used one listed in lower-case.

BTW, I'm keeping an eye on the Otter browser. The idea that they are using Opera-12.xx as a model appeals to me.

The one you're using that is the lowercase one is just repackaging the binary that the Pale Moon team packages. I maintain and use that one. Theoretically, it should work in any situation.

For me Pale Moon is no go for practical reasons: banking and all secure transactions that require FF/Chrome/and (less and less) IE

Yes but without disabling completely ipv6 or blocking with firewall Webrtc does not matter because one can't NAT ipv6 as in the case of ipv4 so unless system does not advertise ipv6 address disabling webrtc is only half of the problem.
Ipv6 is privacy killer anyway.

I haven't had any trouble accessing my account with a major bank using the latest version of Pale Moon.
