Changes in Pale Moon 26.3.2:
- Fixed a rare issue where the browser would not initialize properly (missing bookmarks and menu entries) if certain Windows registry values were missing (Windows 8 only).
- Fixed an issue on Windows 10 where the classic menu bar would become unreadable (white on white).
- Portable only: Switched to non-compressed binaries to prevent issues with antivirus packages, to prevent issues with browser run-time operation, and to simplify code signing.
This release only has pertinent changes for Windows. Other operating systems do not need this update.
