Pale Moon Version 24.7.0 Released

Pale Moon
Pale Moon has been updated to version 24.7.0.  In addition to fixing some performance issues with the new rendering engine on Windows, there are many other updates, including the following security and privacy fixes:


  • Google SafeBrowsing, which is defunct, has been removed from the browser.
    Google SafeBrowsing no longer works in Pale Moon, and still having it in the browser and enabled caused a potential privacy issue by sending the domain check to Google. Considering the limited use of the service to begin with and defunct nature, removal was the only logical option.


  • Updated the NSS library to 3.16.2 RTM to address a few critical SSL issues. 
  • There was a possibility to lose the source frame for raster images if images had to be discarded in low-memory situations. This has been fixed. 
  • Made refcounting logic around PostTimerEvent more explicit. 
  • Prevented an invalid pointer state in docloader. 
  • Added proper refcounting of font faces. 
Detailed information about this update is available in the Announcement.


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...
