Pale Moon has become my default and favorite browser. It is laid out for the convenience of users rather than being handicapped to keep up with the latest in look, touch and feel that kills productivity. Pale Moon is for those that want to get work done, with as little time as possible lost to the eternal quest to locate moved, missing or deleted features that are too common in other browsers at every update. As for all browsers, sometimes pages are not rendered correctly and if so, I just jump briefly to a different browser - but I always end up returning to Pale Moon. In recent years the collection of Pale Moon-specific add-ons has increased dramatically, making it a fine substitute for Firefox.

@Happy.Camper2 - You can probably use New Moon by Roy Tam. Check the MSFN forums for a link.

Happy Holidays To You All :)
Just wondering...Do any of you fine folks have the Palemoon Portable Browser v28 installed on a Vista Home Premium 32-bit OS?
Well, if you do, would you please tell me how? I've DL'ed a couple of v28's and installed them and they wouldn't launch.
To my knowledge of what I've been reading, Palemoon v28+ is for Windows 7+.

Please tell me your tips & tricks so I can go back to using Palemoon. Thanks so much.

Take care.

Pale Moon 28 essentially uses Firefox 52 ESR as a base. Likewise for SeaMonkey 2.49.

AndTheWolf: I'm not sure how to describe this browser outside of it's relationship to Firefox. It looks like Firefox, it supports some Firefox plugins, and the elements on the Technical Details page all reference things that have been added/removed from Firefox.
