Pale Moon 28.6.1 is now in the main repo. All users should update.
This is security and bugfix update.

Improved handling of FTP resource loading (allow save-as and cater to some FTP-based browsing).
Added a preference (security.block_ftp_subresources) to allow users to completely bypass the blocking of FTP subresources if required for their environment, if the improvements made in this release do not suffice.
Added blocking of authentication-locked cross-origin image subresources by default to prevent spurious auth prompts.
A preference (network.auth.subresource-http-img-XO-auth) was added to allow users to bypass this blocking if required for their environment.
Changed the behavior of file: URIs to treat each URI as a unique origin. This prevents cross-file access from scripting.
A preference (security.fileuri.unique_origin) was added to allow users to relax this restriction if required for their environment.
Implemented a revised version of http2PushedStream to address some thread safety issues.
Aligned browser behavior with mainstream regarding inner window behavior when domain is manipulated.
Backed out a 28.5.* patch for causing multiple issues in the UI and web content.
Updated NSS to 3.41.2 (custom) to pick up several upstream fixes.
Fixed a type confusion issue in JavaScript Arrays. (DiD)
Added a fix for cross-thread access of Necko. (DiD)
Added a port safety check for Alternative Services.
Implemented fixes for applicable security issues: CVE-2019-11719, CVE-2019-11711, CVE-2019-11715, CVE-2019-11717, CVE-2019-11714 (DiD), CVE-2019-11729 (DiD), CVE-2019-11727 (DiD), CVE-2019-11730 (DiD), CVE-2019-11713 (DiD) and several networking and memory-safety hazards that do not have CVE numbers.
