Pale Moon 27.7.1 Released January 18, 2018

Updates No Comments »

Pale Moon: Release notes

27.7.1 (2018-01-18)

This is a minor emergency update to address website breakage and a theme issue.

Changes/fixes:

  • Added support for Array.prototype[@@unscopables].
    Unfortunately, the addition of Javascript’s ES6 Unscopables in 27.7.0 was incomplete, which caused a number of websites (e.g. Chase on-line banking, some Russian government sites) to display blank or not complete loading after updating to that version of the browser. This update should fix the problem by adding the missing part of the feature.
  • Fixed an issue with the default theme causing tab borders to be drawn too thick at higher settings for visual element scaling (125%/150%) in Windows.
