Pale Moon Version 27.4.0 Released with Security Updates
« on: July 12, 2017, 12:48:41 PM »
Pale Moon version 27.4.0 has been released with security fixes, including DiD* patches.

    *DiD stands for "Defense-in-Depth" and 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.

This is a major update to address most of the media streaming issues users have had.  In addition, the update includes enhancements, bug fixes and security fixes to the browser.

To get the update now, select "Help" from the Pale Moon menu at the upper left of the browser window.  Select About Pale Moon > Check for Updates.

Palemoon is at version 27; version 24 is from 2014.

I suspect Corrine will change her title and post to Palemoon Version 27.4.0.

Since the time for editing has passed, I will say v 27.4 fixed an issue I was having with the Titantv site! (I kept v 26 handy because I had to fire it up to get the site to show me what day and time I had selected).

Oops, thanks, Winchester73.  I've definitely been trying to do too much multitasking today.
