Pale Moon: Release notes

27.2.1 (2017-03-24)

This is a small update to fix some stability and usability issues.


    • Fixed an issue with planar alpha handling (transparency)
      when drawing JXR images.
    • Fixed a crash related to a change JavaScript array handling
      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
      large images.
    • 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
      to true
    • Restored 2 RSA Camellia cipher suites that were missing:
    • Fixed an issue with custom toolbars getting deleted during
      upgrade from 27.0/27.1 to 27.2

What is Advanced PC Fixer?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Advanced PC Fixer is a “system optimizer”. These so-called “system optimizers” use intentional false positives to convince users that their systems have problems. Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these problems.

Remove the Fake AnonPop Ransomware (

Uncategorized Comments Off on Remove the Fake AnonPop Ransomware (

The Anonpop Fake Ransomware is a malware program discovered by @JAMESWT_MHT that pretends to be a ransomware that encrypts your files and demands a ransom of $125 to decrypt them. In reality, though, this program does not encrypt any of your files and deletes them instead. Thankfully, these scumbags do not securely delete the files and you can use Shadow Volume Copies or programs like Recuva or PhotoRec to recover your files.

Pale Moon 25.8.1 Released: November 28, 2015

Uncategorized Comments Off on Pale Moon 25.8.1 Released: November 28, 2015

Pale Moon: Release notes
25.8.1 (2015-11-28)
A small update to address two important issues:

Fix for a crash that could occur at random since the update to 25.8.0.

Fix for CSP (Content Security Policy) to be more lenient towards the incorrect passing of full URLs with all sorts of parameters in the CSP header, leading to misinterpretation of the header and incorrectly blocking the loading of content.

Pale Moon 25.8.0 Released: November 17, 2015

Uncategorized Comments Off on Pale Moon 25.8.0 Released: November 17, 2015

Pale Moon: Release notes
25.8.0 (2015-11-17)
This is a security, stability and usability update.


Updated LibVPX to 1.4.x to be able to play more kinds of VP9-encoded videos.
Updated the JPEG decoder library to 1.4.0.
Fixed and cleaned up XPCOM timer thread code to avoid intermittent issues with events not firing (especially after stand-by).
Updated overrides to work around issues with Facebook and Netflix.
Fixed an issue where too-old system-supplied NSPR and/or NSS libraries would be accepted for use.

Security fixes:

Updated the libpng library to 1.5.24 to address critical security issues CVE-2015-7981 and CVE-2015-8126
Updated the NSPR library to 4.10.10 to address several security issues.
Updated the NSS library to 3.19.4 to address several security issues.
Fixed a memory safety hazard in SVG path code (CVE-2015-7199).
Fixed an issue with IP address parsing potentially allowing an attacker to bypass the Same Origin Policy (CVE-2015-7188).
Fixed an Add-on SDK (Jetpack) issue that would allow scripts to be executed despite being forbidden (CVE-2015-7187).
Fixed a crash due to a buffer underflow in libjar (CVE-2015-7194).
Fixed an issue for Android full screen that would potentially allow address spoofing (CVE-2015-7185).
Added size checks in canvas manipulations to avoid potential image encoding vulnerabilities like CVE-2015-7189. DiD
Fixed potential information disclosure vulnerabilities through the NTLM authentication mechanism. Insecure NTLM v1 is now disabled by default, and the workstation name is set to WORKSTATION by default (configurable with a preference for environments where identification of workstations is done by actual reported machine name). This avoids issues like CVE-2015-4515.
Fixed a potentially vulnerable crash from a spinning event loop during resize painting. DiD
Fixed several Javascript-based memory safety hazards. DiD

DiD This means that the fix is “Defense-in-Depth”: It is a fix that does not apply to an actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem.
