Just grabbed 28.8.0 src today, compiled on x86_64 - it builds and runs ok, but installer's somewhat broken. More or less.

Thing is, this file & directory removal/reshuffle:
Quote:
Moved the embedded font for Emoji from application to platform so all UXP applications can easily benefit from it (thanks Tobin!).
Could've been done so that the installer can find the new location, and not fail like:
Code:
Error: /storage/obj-palemoon/application/palemoon/installer/package-manifest:45: Missing file(s): bin/fonts/*
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/storage/UXP-PM28.8.0_Release/toolkit/mozapps/installer/packager.py", line 416, in <module>
    main()
  File "/storage/UXP-PM28.8.0_Release/toolkit/mozapps/installer/packager.py", line 367, in main
    copier.add(mozpath.join(respath, 'removed-files'), removals)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/contextlib.py", line 24, in __exit__
    self.gen.next()
  File "/storage/UXP-PM28.8.0_Release/python/mozbuild/mozpack/errors.py", line 131, in accumulate
    raise AccumulatedErrors()
mozpack.errors.AccumulatedErrors
/storage/UXP-PM28.8.0_Release/toolkit/mozapps/installer/packager.mk:41: recipe for target 'stage-package' failed
make[1]: *** [stage-package] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/storage/obj-palemoon/application/palemoon/installer'
/storage/UXP-PM28.8.0_Release/application/palemoon/build.mk:24: recipe for target 'install' failed
make: *** [install] Error 2
So my workaround is to get those removed fonts from 27.x, store them in $CWD and do this:
Code:
cp -R $CWD/old/fonts $TMP/$OBJ/dist/bin/
.. in the SlackBuild, right before doing:
Code:
make install DESTDIR=$PKG
Could probably be done by patching the manifest too, but whatever.

I just un-tarred, as user, the package (bzipped tarball)

http://linux.palemoon.org/download/mainline/

into its own directory and it runs perfectly.
The last few versions had trouble with the location finder on the Accuweather web site, but 28.8 works as it should. No problems on any site I have visited.

Board Member Khronosschoty will, most likely, provide Slackware packages in the near future.

General note:
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.
