As explained by the Pale Moon developer, Moonchild, one of the changes impacting the milestone release in version 25.0 was the removal of the "Firefox" portion from Pale Moon's user agent.
Because the Pale Moon User Agent string is not universally recognized, this has resulted in poor user experiences, including being presented with mobile site layouts, broken pages, or even being flat-out refused service. As a result, the update to Pale Moon version 25.0.2 includes the following change:
- Added a "Firefox compatibility mode" selection in Options -> Advanced. This mode is enabled by default.
- Disabled SSL 3.0 by default (to put a muzzle on the POODLE).
Please note that this may cause issues with some poorly configured web servers (usually ones with a hopelessly broken security setup that do not support TLS 1.2 or secure (re)negotiation of the protocol).
- Improved active tab display on particularly dark personas.
People using "black" personas/lightweight themes should now have a lot less difficulty distinguishing the active tab.
- Fixed add-on update issue (that was preventing update checking through addons.palemoon.org).
- Fixed the redundant redundancy in asking redundantly if the
browser would be allowed to ask to install an extension when not on
- Fixed the internal UA-sniffing insanity that broke devtools in a few different and colorful ways.
