Pale Moon 26.4.0 Released: August 17, 2016

Updates No Comments »

Pale Moon: Release notes

26.4.0 (2016-08-17)

Changes/fixes:

  • Removed
    Google Search as a bundled search provider. If desired, you can
    manually install it (or other search engines) after the update by
    following the steps in the Manage Search Engines topic.
  • Fixed the URL API to allow “stringification” of the object
    per specification. This should make a number of websites happy.
  • Added the ES6 string .includes() function in addition to the pre-existing .contains() function for checking if a string contains another string. The .contains()
    function is retained for compatibility with web and extension scripts
    that adhere to the ES6 pre-release specification up to and including
    RC3.
  • Fixed
    the calculation of standalone SVG embeds width and height, which should
    solve some reported issues with html5 graphs being displayed
    incorrectly.
  • Linux: improved memory allocation.
  • Updated the graphite font library to 1.3.9.
  • Added a blocking rule for F-Secure’s 64-bit deepguard library to prevent crashes.
  • Updated the SQLite library to 3.13.0.
  • Download= properties of links are now honored from the context menu “Save” option.
  • Fixed a crash in the XSS filter.
  • Fixed a crash in the DOM error module.
  • Worked around a crash on Linux
  • Linux:
    Improved optimization and GCC6 compatibility (Note: compiling with GCC
    6 is still not recommended and it may or may not work, depending on
    your environment)

Security fixes:

  • (CVE-2016-5251)Potential URL spoofing in the address bar.
  • (CVE-2016-0718) Context-dependent crash in expat 2.1.0.
  • (CVE-2016-5266) Outgoing dataTransfer items are not properly filtered.
  • Fixed potentially exploitable crash in the array splice implementation.
  • Fixed potentially exploitable crash caused by badly formatted ICO files.
  • (CVE-2016-5254) Heap-use-after-free in nsXULPopupManager::KeyDown
