Pale Moon updated to 26.3.2 – Windows only!

Updates No Comments »

This is a Windows-only update to fix a number of issues on Windows 8 and 10.
Non-windows operating systems do not need this update!


  • Fixed a rare issue where the browser would not initialize properly (missing bookmarks and menu entries) if certain Windows registry values were missing (Windows 8 only).
  • Fixed an issue on Windows 10 where the classic menu bar/page title would become unreadable (white on white).
  • Portable only: Switched to non-compressed binaries to prevent issues with antivirus packages, to prevent issues with browser run-time operation, and to simplify code signing.
    Note: if you prefer compressed binaries like before, you can compress them yourself with UPX.
