Pale Moon has been updated to version 29.4.0.1. This is an out-of-band update to address an issue with the FUEL component.  As described in the Release Notes:

Quote
"In 29.4.0, the optional FUEL component (long since deprecated precursor to the Mozilla Add-On SDK) was removed from Pale Moon. This had unexpected impact on a number of popular extensions as well as a few bits of core functionality that went unnoticed in our pre-release testing and unstable channel.

As part of our commitment to resolving issues and giving extension developers some more time to address any problems with this removal of the component from the browser, this update temporarily restores the FUEL component.

If you are an extension developer relying on FUEL components or namespaces (e.g. implicit 'Application'), please update your extension before the next major release."

Pale Moon includes both 32- and 64-bit versions for Windows:  Pale Moon for Windows downloads.

Update: 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.

Pale Moon Version 29.4.0.2 released.  From the Release Notes:

Quote
´╗┐This is an out-of-band update to address the issue that in rare occasions on both Linux and Windows, audio would stop working (e.g. for playing videos or MP3s). We're still investigating the root cause of this issue on Windows (Linux cause was already found) but have temporarily reverted to our previous audio library (libcubeb) version for this release to provide a proper media experience for our users in the interim.
