And if Palemoon were the best browser, simply the best ?
after installaing Palemoon, can we delete seamonkey and Firefox from usr/lib (Triton Puplet 5.4) ?
Seamonkey, I presume answer is yes, but firefox and palemoon perhaps have common libs. I shall see, and confirm whatever working or not.
Wihdrawal does not impact Palemoon (rebooted)
Further interrogation, are the brand new ISOS cleaned of these libs ?, i verify that right now....
Tahr is ok.

You don't need a pet or sfs to install Palemoon.
Go here ==>http://sourceforge.net/projects/pm4linux/
Download pminstaller-0.1.6.tar.bz2, unpack it in your home (or tmp) directory and click on the pminstaller.sh script.

The installer makes it the perfect default browser for Tahr or other new pups, as you don't have to sweat tracking down the latest version afterwards.

If anyone's wondering, I have tested the installer with Tahr 6.0 (to update to the latest version) and with Precise 5.7.1 (for a new installation) and it has worked perfectly with both of those Pups.



Tip: about:config works like in Firefox and SeaMonkey.

I don't know yet if Pale Moon has the same cache leakage issues as the others, as I went ahead and tweaked it immediately.

It's actually easier to do in Pale Moon than it is in Firefox:

1) open a new browser window or tab in Pale Moon.

2) enter "about:config" (without the quotation marks) as the URL address.

3) in the search bar, type "memory"

4) Find the line that reads "browser.cache.memory.capacity". By default, it is set to -1, meaning the browser can use unlimited memory for its cache. Right click on that line and choose "Modify".

5) Input a new value to determine how much cache memory you want to allow. I use 65536 (for 64 meg), but 32768 should be plenty.



It's a similar process in Firefox, except that when you enter "memory" into the search bar, you probably won't find the browser.cache.memory.capacity line.

So for Firefox, you then have to right click anywhere on the list of entries, choose "New". choose "Integer" for the type, and then type in "browser.cache.memory.capacity" for the entry.

Once you enter it, then you can set the value to whatever you like.

666philb,

Palemoon wants you to touch base with them.
Some misunderstanding brewing there: http://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=6655

OK, situation explained to Palemoon developer - we now have permission to distribute the .pet, assuming it is unaltered.

See: http://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=6655&start=10

It seems a bit overrated to me, anyway. It works pretty good but I'm still liking the Chrome, Chromium and Iron based a bit better. I've never been a big fan of Firefox or its offspring though Seamonkey seems to be a necessary evil for its html editor.

Best,

cheers guys

the developer of palemoon has given the ok for the .pet package and also for it's inclusion in tahrpup. the license agreement has also been updated making it easier for free community distributions like puppy to package palemoon into their distro specific format.

i will update the pet soon to include the official palemoon updater

666philb,
That's a nice outcome!

Slavvo,
I don't think it's overrated, in my view, the exact opposite is true - it's underrated. However, I'm biased in favor of Mozilla. The first time I saw the internet, was through Netscape Navigator. I have a hard time choosing between Firefox, Seamonkey, Iceweasel or Palemoon. I like them all, as they are all descendants of The Browser. Bill Gates too, had an unhealthy infatuation with Netscape Navigator at the time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tr7_T_M0g4&app=desktop

Palemoon is a lean and nimble Firefox, just what I have always wanted.
Thanks.

Start it like this, then choose or make one:
Code:
palemoon -ProfileManager

Something I don't understand about PM aboard Nix.. Why on Earth leave spaces when naming directories?

Here, open >> /root/.moonchild productions/pale moon/profiles.ini

.. and have its path include the full line in quotes:
Quote:
Path="/root/.moonchild productions/pale moon/*.default"

Yah, sub your default number.

no, I'm afraid that generates the same error message / no browser launch

putting the default number into the file where you suggested also unfortunately does not work ...

I'd do this:
Download palemoon installer script (see a couple posts above), uninstall palemoon, remove .monnchild productions from /home, install the latest palemoon version - 25.0.2 or whatever it is. Problem solved.
