Pale Moon v27.5.0 Released
09.26.2017


This is a major update furthering general development of the browser.

Whats New:
Changes/fixes
User interface
• Added a menu option to restart the browser.
• Added Windows-specific CSS parameters and queries for the use of the system accent color. Added are parameters -moz-win-accentcolor and -moz-win-accentcolortext, and the media query -moz-win-accentcolor-applies to know if Windows is actively using an accent color.
• Changed Windows' browser CSS sheet ot use variables instead of hard-coding colors, simplifying its style and making it more flexible. Further cleaned up the Windows 10 specific browser style.
• Changed the theme on Windows 10 to use the new accent colors and improve O.S. consistency.
• Fixed some general inconsistencies in the Windows theme on all Windows operating systems.
• Updated Windows widgets to be able to pick up Windows 10 accent colors dynamically and have the browser 's look and feel respond accordingly, even with automatic color changes based on desktop wallpaper.
• Removed the experimental FF4 prerelease status-in-addressbar feature because the already-crowded address bar needs a break. This should solve some extension interop issues, theme issues and domain highlighting issues people have reported.
• Cleaned up some dead code for the plugin updater that no longer exists.
• Fixed a text direction issue in preferences.
• Fixed an issue with disabled context menu entries after using Customize...
• Reorganized and cleaned up the status preferences.
Media
MSE Media updates (ongoing). We are focusing on improving MP4 handling.
• Improved MP3 metadata parsing (e.g. incorrect duration with embedded album cover)
• Fixed a number of searching issues in MP3 files
• Fixed a few crashes
• And So Much More.... :)

Pale Moon v27.5.1 Released
10.10.2017


This is a security and stability update to the browser, as well as fixing some issues users have indicated.

Whats New:
Changes/fixes:
• Changed the default Windows 10 styling when no accent color is aplied to black-on-white.
• Changed the theme styling on Windows 10 when the system window frame is used (menu bar enabled) to use the window manager background directly, preventing visual lag updating the window color when it changes.
• Updated user agent overrides for DropBox, YouTube and Yahoo to work around user agent sniffing issues.
• Fixed a crash in the media subsystem.
• Fixed a regression where video playback hardware acceleration was disabled incorrectly on some systems.
Security fixes:
• Updated libhyphen to the latest upstream code to fix a security issue.
• Updated NSPR to 4.16-RTM with a patch to un-bust building on win64.
• Updated NSS to 3.32.1-RTM.
• Worked around some more issues with Mac fonts (CVE-2017-7825).
• Fixed a potential rooting hazard in NPAPI plugin code. DiD
• Fixed a potential reference issue in JavaScript arrays. DiD

DiD This means that the 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 when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem.
