Pale Moon 28.14.0 changes/fixes:
- Updated the browser identity code for website security to more clearly indicate website status.
- A detailed explanation is available on the forum and beyond the scope of these release notes.
- Updated unofficial branding to be more generic and more clearly separate unofficial builds from Pale Moon as a product.
- Please note that this goes hand in hand with an update of our redistribution license, and from this point forward any "New Moon" products are to be considered separate, and not unofficial Pale Moon builds or in any way related to or affiliated with Pale Moon, despite the similarity in name.
- Added a preference (signon.startup.prompt) to give users the option to ask for the Master Password the moment the application starts (before the main window opens). This allows a workaround for getting multiple Master Password prompts if individual components need access to the password store at the same time.
- Changed the way download sources are displayed to always use the actual domain downloads are from. In some situations the browser would previously display the domain of the referring page in an inconsistent fashion. [full release notes]
Changes in Pale Moon 28.14.1:
- This update addresses an intermittent crash in the newly-implemented ResizeObserver API (introduced in 28.14.0) occurring on a number of high-profile and often-used websites.
Fixes in Pale Moon 28.14.2:
- Fixed some additional crashes caused by the ResizeObserver API. This should take care of all crashes that have been attributed to this new code.
- Fixed erroneous parsing of CSS percentages as number values.
