Pale Moon is an Open Source, Firefox-based web browser for Microsoft Windows, focusing on efficiency and ease of use. Make sure to get the most out of your browser!

Pale Moon offers you a browsing experience in a browser completely built from source with carefully selected features and optimizations to maximize the browser's speed*, stability and user experience, while maintaining compatibility with the thousands of Firefox extensions you have come to love and rely on.

This browser, even though close to Firefox in the way it works, offers a different set of features than its sibling. A few carefully selected features have been disabled that are not in high demand, and that do not interfere with the way web pages are displayed or function; all to maximize the efficiency of the browser. Please see the page with technical details to learn exactly what the browser supports, and what it doesn't support. For example, if you need accessibility features or parental controls, then please visit the Firefox homepage and get the official, non-optimized version of the browser.

With the current generation of Gecko-based browsers, there are a few other differences between Pale Moon and Firefox that are more obvious and not just "under the hood": contrary to what Mozilla has done with their redesign of the user interface, Pale Moon will continue to provide a familiar set of controls and visual feedback similar to previous versions, including grouped navigation buttons of a decent size, a bookmarks toolbar that is enabled by default, tabs next to page content by default (easily switchable) and not in the least a functional status bar, to name a few things.

Version 24.1.0
Fixes:
  • MFSA 2013-102 Use-after-free in HTML document templates.
  • MFSA 2013-101 Memory corruption in workers.
  • MFSA 2013-100 Miscellaneous use-after-free issues found through ASAN fuzzing.
  • MFSA 2013-99 Security bypass of PDF.js checks using iframes.
  • MFSA 2013-98 Use-after-free when updating offline cache.
  • MFSA 2013-97 Writing to cycle collected object during image decoding.
  • MFSA 2013-96 Improperly initialized memory and overflows in some JavaScript functions.
  • MFSA 2013-95 Access violation with XSLT and uninitialized data.
  • MFSA 2013-94 Spoofing addressbar though SELECT element.
  • MFSA 2013-93 Miscellaneous memory safety hazards.
  • Security + cleanup fix: No longer store empty event handlers.
  • User interface: Fix for the classic downloads window having a blank title with no running downloads.
  • User interface: Fix of the drop-down menu "double entry" in the all-tabs list as-a-menu setup.
Changes:
  • Extensions are now set to automatically update by default. Because many users fail to do the occasional check to see if there are updates available to their extensions, the default is to automatically check and install available updates to extensions from this version forward to give the best possible browsing experience. If you prefer to check manually, make sure to change the setting accordingly in your add-on manager.
  • Two SSL ciphers that are considered weak are disabled by default (RSA-RC4-128-MD5 and RSA-RC4-128-SHA). If you are having trouble reaching certain encrypted sites that exclusively use these encryption methods, you should ask the site owners to update their SSL configuration to allow stronger encryption. As a workaround, you can enable the ciphers by installing the Pale Moon Commander add-on and changing the available ciphers there, or by setting security.ssl3.rsa_rc4_128_md5 and security.ssl3.rsa_rc4_128_sha to true in about:config
New Features:
  • When there is a web feed available on a website, Pale Moon will now display a feed indicator on the right side of the address bar to indicate that feeds are available. You can click this icon to subscribe to feeds.
