They are different files with different sizes. They appear to be the Java "JAR" format, which is really a "zip" file. You can copy the JAR file with a "zip" extension into a separate subdirectory and unzip them. The version in the "palemoon/" subdirectory is larger and contains more files than the version in the "palemoon/browser/" directory. They happen to use the same name, but have different functions.

Because that is how the developers of Palemoon want it to work.
As I understand, one file is used for actual display of the browser and the other is used in display of web pages.

Probably keeps a bad coded web page from freezing up the browser. The bad code would only freeze up the web page.

Does the presence of omni.ja indicate that a java jre is required for Palemoon to run properly? Or does it indicate that Palemoon has some form of java runtime built in?

(I am happy with javascript but don't want anything to do with java)

cheers!

No. It is actually using unzip to unpack it.

Do not get all hung up over this.

It is just a type of compressed package file with files in it that Palemoon uses. Palemoon being based on Mozilla.
They use the jar format to compress/package stuff.

achieve performance improvements by moving many of their internal parts from being standalone files or sets of JAR files into just one JAR file called omni.ja ; this reduces the amount of I/O needed to load the application.

Note: Starting with Firefox 10 and Thunderbird 10, the file extension .ja is used because Windows System Restore does not back up files with the .jar extension, but it does back up .ja files. This change was needed to prevent Firefox from becoming corrupted.

That is a Windows problem, but .ja also works in Linux, so I guess they used it in both versions.

Whatever, it works! Very Happy

Does anyone else see square brackets around things like url and quote, and have to cut and paste URLs to access them?

Version 27.8.3 is available for downloading. This is a small update to solve a rather pervasive crash issue caused by layout code used for "responsive webpages". The release notes are at http://www.palemoon.org/releasenotes.shtml

That shows up when you hit "Quote" to quote a user as part of a reply to this forum (and also other forums)

Two possibilities...

  1. Are you recovering from a crash or "killall palemoon" command? Pale Moon will attempt to restore the previous session in that case.
  2. Do you have multiple profiles? Maybe you've set one profile to start with blank, but you're opening another profile that doesn't have the setting.

You should also delete the moonchild productions directory in /root/.cache/.

Version 27.9.0 is available for downloading. This is the last major development update for the v27 milestone (codenamed "Tycho"). After this, we will be focusing our efforts for new features entirely on UXP and the new v28 milestone building on it. We will continue to support v27.9 with security and stability updates for a while, but no major new features will be added from this point forward. The release notes are at http://www.palemoon.org/releasenotes.shtml

says

A XUL-based web-browser demonstrating the Unified XUL Platform (UXP).
This browser is a close twin to pre-Servo Firefox in how it operates.

Is this browser associated/affiliated with Mozilla?
In one word: No.
This browser is created and maintained by the team behind Pale Moon, and is a fully independent fork of the Mozilla/Firefox code.

What is UXP?

See first post in thread https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?t=18211 "Details about UXP in 2018" for more details. Basically, it was recently discovered that the current fork base (Firefox 55) already has some hard-coded stuff set up in preparation for Quantum/Rust/etc. This would get in the way of using the XUL base code for anything but a Firefox-like browser. Apparently, it's simpler and less work to re-fork off of Firefox 52 ESR than to undo the interconnected source code changes all over the place along the path from FF52 ESR to FF55.
