I have new packages up. If anyone preferred the 32 bit version compiled with gcc 4.9.4, over the 32 bit version being compiled with Slackware's own stock gcc, let me know and I'll add that too.

Works good on x86_64, I've tried the latest 28.5 version (upgraded from 27.x recently)
Compiled on gcc 5.5.0 with -O2, these flags still work fine on UXP compared to previous engine:
Code:
--with-system-bz2 \
--with-system-zlib \
--enable-default-toolkit=cairo-gtk2 \
--disable-pulseaudio \
--disable-dbus \
--enable-alsa \
Probably missing some depends on my buildsystem, cause it would pass configure, pre-export, export but later choke on compile.
Had to use this one flag to avoid error, but it doesn't matter (it's unofficial build, and I don't use the feature anyway).
Code:
--disable-accessibility
After that it was all cool, no problem.

There is an archive of old firefox extensions, some of you might find it useful considering the recent events.
I bumped into it by accident just now, an even though I only use a few of them, this repository is a great learning resource.

Catalog of classic Firefox add-ons created before WebExtensions apocalypse

Pale Moon 28.5.2 has been released.
Quote:
This is a small update to fix a breaking bug with 28.5.1. More information in the release notes!
Version 28.5.1 was released just yesterday, so the above was a small follow up bug fix.

The Release notes, https://www.palemoon.org/releasenotes.shtml

Quote:
v28.5.1 (2019-06-04)
This is a security and bugfix update.

Changes/fixes:

Restored a global getBoolPref() function shortcut for extension compatibility with old extensions.
If you are currently using this global function, please change it to Services.prefs.getBoolPref()
Fixed an issue with the UI when the address bar was removed from the navigation toolbar.
Fixed an issue with scripting of the Help menu.
Fixed a crash resulting from non-standard manipulation of XML stylesheets by extensions.
Fixed Aero Peek (taskbar previews) on Windows.
Fixed browser.link.open_newwindow functionality.
Removed the default handler for webcal since the site doesn't seem to be properly maintained.
Prevented some ways smart places queries could be abused for social engineering attacks.
Ported an upstream Skia fix.
Improved the origin-clean algorithm for canvases.
Improved the efficiency of certain types of memory allocations in the JavaScript compiler.
Changed the way the application update checker code is hooked up so it will not require a user to go idle before being activated.
This solves the primary issue with application updates not notifying users as promptly as they should; more improvements are slated for the next major release.
Applicable security issues fixed: CVE-2019-7317, CVE-2019-11701, CVE-2019-11698, CVE-2019-9817 (DiD), CVE-2019-11700, CVE-2019-11696, CVE-2019-11693, and several potentially exploitable crashes and memory safety hazards that do not have a CVE number assigned to them.

New packages for 28.7.0 built and uploading now. I think this is also the first time I managed to compile and upload the latest version ahead of the official generic package.

So in any case for those who use the SlackBuild to repackage the official generic binaries, you'll have to wait until those are actually published (and I'm guessing that will be soon).

I uploaded new packages for 14.2; but current is a work in progress still. I suspect a fix will be needed for the newer glibc, that recently landed in current; not all that long ago.

After a lengthy delay the issue preventing me from compiling 28.7.1 on current has been resolved; you can find a Pale Moon 28.7.1 Slackware package in the usual location.

Pale Moon 28.8.0 has been released. This is a major development release with many changes, additions and fixes. More information in the release notes!
http://www.palemoon.org/

The release notes,

Quote:
v28.8.0 (2019-12-10)
This is a major development release. Many things have been improved, some landmark features have been added/enabled, and many libraries have been updated for added stability and performance. We hope you are as happy with this progress as we are!

All the best wishes for the Holidays to everyone!

New features:

Added support for modern Solaris operating systems like Illumos (thanks Athenian200!).
Implemented position:sticky for table parts - You can now use CSS to e.g. stick table headers so they don't scroll off the screen!
Enabled basic implementation of module type scripting. While not fully spec compliant (yet), this will fix the few web compatibility issues with sites that rely on this feature without fallback (e.g. the Chromium bugtracker).
Implemented Promise.prototype.finally() (ES2018).
Implemented Regular Expression lookbehind (ES2018).
Implemented Regular Expression /s flag (dotAll support) (ES2018).
Implemented String.prototype.matchAll (regex) (ES2020).
Added Ekoru to the list of default search engines. This is a Bing-backed search engine that donates the majority of its revenue to various charities that support the planet and animals. An environment-supporting alternative to Ecosia if you don't want to support Google in the process.

Changes/fixes:

Changed the way tables are rendered to fix a number of spec compliance issues and allow relative positioning of table parts.
Now building against the Windows 10 SDK 10.0.17763.132 for increased compatibility with Windows 10 and improved Spectre mitigation.
Removed the unused DiskSpaceWatcher component.
Updated cairo code.
Updated SQLite to 3.30.1.
Updated the Brotli library to 1.0.7.
Updated the woff2 library to 1.0.2.
Updated the OpenType Sanitizer to 8.0.0.
Updated the Javascript math library for precision and performance fixes.
Updated the embedded Emoji font to Mozilla's COLR-mapped twemoji 0.5.0 (Twemoji 12.1.3), to support Emoji 12.
Improved CSS grid rendering.
Changed packaging for archives to use 7z/xz instead of zip/bz2.
Made the second argument of (DOM/CSS) insertRule() optional for (Chrome) web compatibility.
Removed the non-standard object.prototype.watch()/unwatch() functions. Please note that this may affect some extensions; those will need to be updated to no longer use these non-standard functions.
Fixed the status bar module to work around an issue with relying on watch()/unwatch().
Fixed a build failure in the libcubeb sndio module.
Fixed a small oversight in the release branch that would potentially still mark jnlp files as executable.
Fixed the certificate retrieval logic in the certificate exception dialog.
Fixed an issue with add-ons potentially getting confused during add-on updates due to cached scripts.
Fixed a crash due to unnecessary reparenting calls in layout.
Reinstated the mentioning of the number of accelerated/total windows in Troubleshooting Information, for completeness.
Moved the embedded font for Emoji from application to platform so all UXP applications can easily benefit from it (thanks Tobin!).
Cleaned up the jemalloc code: Removed dead/unused code, removed conditionals around "always on" code, and made the allocator VLA-free.
Fixed an oversight in the release branch still marking "jnlp" (Java Web Start) as executable.

Security-related fixes:

Removed the silent fallback to insecure install locations on Windows.
Pale Moon will no longer by default install into unprotected program locations (this was a regression in v28).
If your operating system account does not have the necessary privileges, you need to manually select an accessible folder to install into. This is important to prevent malware from modifying installed programs in well-known but otherwise unprotected installation locations.
Added a preference for, and disabled, the confirmation prompt for URL authentication (prevents evil traps).
Disabled the use of HPKP by default due to the inherent risks involved with this feature. A preference was added to completely disable header processing, and using preloaded pins is effectively disabled. Please note that this is automatically disabled by default for everyone, regardless of your previous setting for this feature, and it is strongly recommended you keep this feature disabled. HPKP will eventually be removed (overall Internet concensus).
Fixed a potential issue when interacting with plugins. (DiD)
Fixed a potential crash scenario when reading PAC configuration. (DiD)
Fixed a potential issue with text selection painting. (DiD)
Fixed an issue with element references not being properly updated. (DiD)
Fixed an issue with incorrect saving of web pages as text. (DiD)
Fixed a potential issue with clipboard handling. (DiD)
Fixed a potential issue with attaching the debugger to web workers. (DiD)
Updated NSS to 3.41.4 to address CVE-2019-11756 and CVE-2019-11745.
Unified XUL Platform Mozilla Security Patch Summary: 2 fixed, 8 DiD, 16 not applicable.
