Pale Moon Bugfix Update to Version 26.0.3

Pale Moon

Pale Moon has been updated to version 26.0.3.  The update is a bugfix with two small but important changes.

The updates as described in the Release Notes include the following:

  • Changed our cookie gate to allow cookie names with spaces in them, to improve web compatibility. Restricting cookies to address CVE-2016-1939 also blacklisted a "grey" character (being 0x20, or the space character) in cookie names, causing some issues with some websites. This also affected Firefox who will be releasing a similar compatibility update soon.

    Critical note: if your site uses cookie names with spaces in them, please consider moving away from doing that so you are no longer in the "grey" area of cookie behavior.
  • Changed the configuration of our XSS filter to address some known, harmless filter hits that have been reported.

Minimum system Requirements (Windows):
  • Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8/Server 2008 or later
  • A processor with SSE2 support
  • 256 MB of free RAM (512 MB or more recommended)
  • At least 150 MB of free (uncompressed) disk space
Pale Moon includes both 32- and 64-bit versions for Windows:
Other versions:


    To get the update now, select "Help" from the Pale Moon menu at the upper left of the browser window.  Select About Pale Moon > Check for Updates.

    Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
    May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
