Have you tried Help->Check for Updates... ?


@ 6502coder:-

I doubt that'll work for him. Up until the 28-series, Palemoon made use of the separate updater, which has since been deprecated. I forget if PM 27.xxxx even had the 'Check for updates' menu entry; if it did, it would lead to a dead-end.

@ LeithR:-

Try my 'portable' Palemoon package:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1015085#1015085

The resident 28.6.0 will very soon auto-update to the current 28.8.1. Usage instructions are in the first post, along with the download location.

@LeithR:
What Mike said. His portable Palemoon package has worked great for me.

LeithR, I ususally download my Palemoons from palemoon.org, you'll find the lastest 64-bit version here: (I use tahr64_6.0.6)
http://linux.palemoon.org/download/mainline/
I unpack it, and place the PM in /opt, make a palemoon.desktop, and a link from /opt/palemoon/palemoon to /usr/bin.
There is a detailed description of the installation here, you'll have to adapt it to your puppy, but if you have the icons and palemoon.desktop from earlier installation, there is no need to modify those, just leave them as is.
http://linux.palemoon.org/help/installation/

The browser icon on the desktop is usually set to open /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser, if you open defaultbrowser as text and modify it, you can set palemoon as you browser; exec palemoon "$@"

I saw a note about the old /root/.moonchild productions/ dir, it should not be used, there are some new mods in the PM 28 series. You can delete, or rename it. You should also delete the palemoon dir in /root/.cache before you start to use the new PM. If you have a lot of bookmarks and other notes, don't delete but just rename the old /opt/palemoon/ dir, and import the bookmarks from it to the new PM later.

BTW, to update PM later, use the Check for updates in the Help menu, works for me.

@6502coder - I'm replying on another machine that still has access to the forum. Thanks for the suggestion, help-> check for update does not exist on this version of Palemoon (27.6.1) and internet-> palemoon updater is not working for some reason.

@Mike Walsh - I've got onto your Portables Google Drive and am trying to download Palemoon-28.6.0-amd64-portable.tar.gz , single click does nothing and double click opens it as an email attachment would. How do I download it? I don't use Google Drive.

@tallboy - I've downloaded the TB. I may need further help as I've not done any linking before.

Thanks to all for your help.

I've just used quickpet and that seems to have sorted at least some of the problems out. I'm now using palemoon28.8.1 on that machine. However the forum is not letting me login any more. When I try to log in I get a message saying the email address I supplied does not match the one listed for that username.

There doesn't seem to be any obvious way to update my listing. Can you suggest who I should contact to sort this out please?

"Panic over" after 15 minutes I was able to get into the forum, must have been related to my old palemoon issue.

LeithR, sorry for not responding earlier, I was away for a couple of days. But, I saw in another thread that you got the help you needed. Very Happy

Remember that in Linux, all programs are just a bunch of text files, usually containing lines of code language, but otherwise like any other text file that you make yourself. Some scripts or programs that don't scatter files all over the place, can simply be deleted. But if you want to remove a program the normal way, the Puppy Package Manager (PPM) always list the programs that you have added. Just open the PPM and click them to uninstall and remove them. My PPM in tahr64, also tell me if the program that I just removed, needed additional dependencies when it was installed, and gives me a list of deps that I have to remove manually myself (by clicking on them in the PPM). Remember to copy that list, it is shown only once! Some programs may have produced files containing preferences or logs, you can run pFind and search for the program name to find files to be removed. After removing programs, and if you use the jwm window manager, run the command jwm -restart to update your menus, I usually also restart X - usually by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, or choose Restart Graphical Server from the Exit Menu.

PostPosted: Sat 15 Feb 2020, 18:16    Post subject: High CPU usage level possible fix  

Pale Moon high CPU usage.
There is a fix for Linux they are working on.
Testing it for now.

You can try to make the changes.

about:config in address slot, will bring up config window.
Make changes.

Try this one first.
layers.acceleration.force-enabled

This one may or may not help or be needed.
First try without changing this.
media.hardware-video-decoding.force-enabled

Shutdown and restart Pale Moon, so changes are being used.

about:support in address slot, will bring up support page, where you can see what changed.

Helped my Pale Moon v28.8.2.1

Also, Pale Moon v28.8.2.1 fixes You tube.
Quote:
YouTube deprecating their old web UI. This change will enable the new YouTube UI by default.
