Pale Moon: Release notes
This is a small update to fix some stability and usability issues.
- Fixed an issue with planar alpha handling (transparency)
when drawing JXR images.
introduced in 27.2.0.
This became apparent with the pentadactyl extension, but could happen
in other situations as well.
- Fixed a crash when opening ridiculously large images with
HQ scaling enabled (default).
Pale Moon will now only apply HQ scaling for images within reasonable
limits (64 Mpix or smaller). Images larger than that may not display
properly when zooming in, or may not display at all, even scaled down
(e.g. >256 Mpix large) and show a “broken image” placeholder
instead; please use dedicated image viewer applications for those kinds
of images; it is outside the scope of a web browser to handle such
- Changed the way URL hashes are handled, and will no longer
%-decode anchor hash identifiers by default.
Note that this is against RFC 3986, which states that any part of the
URL scheme that isn’t data should be decoded.
This is required for web compatibility because several sites use hash
links to pass actual data to web applications (Please don’t do this!
Hashes ar part of the URL address, should only consist of “safe”
characters, and aren’t suited to pass arbitrary data) and the most
common browsers no longer follow the RFC in that respect.
If you want RFC compliance, switch dom.url.getters_decode_hash
- Restored 2 RSA Camellia cipher suites that were missing:
TLS_RSA_WITH_CAMELLIA_128_CBC_SHA and TLS_RSA_WITH_CAMELLIA_256_CBC_SHA
- Fixed an issue with custom toolbars getting deleted during
upgrade from 27.0/27.1 to 27.2
