Pale Moon Version 32.5.2 Released with Security Updates

 Pale Moon

Pale Moon has been updated to version 32.5.2.  This is a bugfix and security update.


  • Removed the standard Twitter/X user-agent override because they decided to block us on it.
  • Added preferences for the user to control whether or not the tab page title should be included in the window title or not. In Private Browsing mode, the default is now to not show the title in the window. This was done to avoid potential leakage to system logs (e.g. GNOME shell logs or Windows event logs) of websites visited through the recorded window title. The new preferences are privacy.exposeContentTitleInWindow and privacy.exposeContentTitleInWindow.pbm for normal mode and Private Browsing mode, respectively.
  • Fixed several crashes in DOM and relating to dynamic JavaScript module imports.
  • Removed a restriction on Fetch preflight redirects, following a spec update.
  • Improved the handling of web workers if they get aborted mid-action.
  • Security issues addressed: CVE-2023-6863, CVE-2023-6858 and several others that do not have a CVE number.
  • UXP Mozilla security patch summary: 4 fixed, 2 DiD, 1 rejected (which was DiD at best), 1 postponed (low risk), 22 not applicable.


*DiD This means that a fix is "Defense-in-Depth": It is a fix that does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered.

Rejected security patches: This means that patches were theoretically applicable to our code but considered undesirable, which could be due to unwanted changes in behavior, known regressions caused by the patches, or unnecessary risks for stability, security or privacy.

Pale Moon includes both 32- and 64-bit versions for Windows: Pale Moon for Windows downloads.

Update: 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.
