yes -libfontconfig1 in debian/stretch is libfontconfig1 (2.11.0-6.7 and others) so the palemoon build is faulty for standard debian/stretch.

Oops, I must have had the MX repo added to sbuild for that particular build. But it's fine with MX!

However, antiX users can always use the Jessie/Stretch/Buster versions from my OBS repo--add the repo and its key to get automatic updates, or just download and install the single deb package. See the "download packages" on this page:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... r/palemoon

The repo also has the latest firejail and firetools if you want to use those with PM.

Pale Moon 28.4.1 is now available in the main repository.
This is a security and bugfix update.

Fixed hover state arrows on some controls.
Fixed potential denial-of-service issues involving FTP (loading of subresources and spamming errors).
Disabled Microsoft Family Safety (Win 8.1) by default. This prevents security issues as a result of a local MitM setup.
Added several site-specific overrides (Firefox Send and polyfill.io) to work around website UA-sniffing isues.
Implemented the origin-clean algorithm for controlling access to image resources.
Cleaned up the helper application service code.
Ported applicable security fixes from Mozilla (CVE-2019-9791, CVE-2019-9792, CVE-2019-9796, CVE-2019-9801, CVE-2019-9793, CVE-2019-9794, CVE-2019-9808 and ZDI-CAN-8368).
Implemented several defense-in-depth measures (for CVE-2019-9790, CVE-2019-9797, CVE-2019-9804, and a JavaScript issue).
Fixed several memory safety hazards and crashes.
Binaries are now code-signed again (including the setup program for the installer).
The Pale Moon package now also provides www-browser and gnome-www-browser for any desktop metapackages that require one of those virtual browser packages.

Unlike the last 28.4.0 packages, these are also fully compatible with vanilla Stretch and antiX 17.X.

I like Palemoon, my default web-Browser now (thanks Stevo, I discovered it by you), I also have an Android version (but unfortunately not the latest, an old V 25.9.6)

Updated to 28.5.0 in the main repo:

- Fixed a crash with frames (e.g. when using Tile Tabs).

- Removed the Windows Maintenance Service one last time.
- Improved http basic auth DoS heuristics.
- Fixed an issue on big-endian machines (e.g. PPC64/linux).
- Removed e10s code from widgets.
- Preffed the various http "Accept" headers and aligned with the Fetch spec
(except for image requests).
- Aligned URLSearchParams with the spec.
- Updated several site-specific UA overrides.
- Fixed "Yet Another special case of a flex frame being the absolute
containing block"™
- Fixed border drawing when the tab bar is hidden.
- Pref-controlled and disabled the use of unboxed plain objects in
JavaScript's JIT compiler.
- Improved handling of interrupted connections through proxies and
pseudo-VPN extensions.
- Removed contextual identity.
- Updated the 7zip installer stub to a much more recent code version.
- Fixed an issue with applying percentages to 0 in layout sizes.
- Fixed an issue with calculating linear sums in JS JITed code.
- Added default value feature to get*Pref() preference functions.
- Fixed an issue that would occasionally overwrite the new tab custom URL.
- Updated the SQLite library to 3.27.2
- Killed the crashreporter toolkit files and exception handler hooks.
- Fixed an issue with a missing border on the tab bar when on the bottom.
- Fixed a crash with badly-formatted SVG files.
- Showed the robots to the exit after squatting in the browser for decades.
- JavaScript: Implemented TC39 toString() revision proposal.
- Rearchitectured the JavaScript front-end parser to provide better and more
logical parsing of JS code.
- Removed support code and leftovers for unsupported SunOS, AIX, BEOS, HPUX
and OS/2 operating systems.
- Fixed a scrollbar arrow issue on OS X.
- Removed all Firefox Accounts code.
- Made the CSS parser more robust and aligned url() behavior with the CSS3
spec in case of bad input.
- Fixed an issue with blocklist updates not actually dynamically applying
due to a wrong URL.
- Updated the embedded emoji font to the TweMoji v11.4.0 equivalent.
- Fixed an issue with async/deferred scripts preventing page loads from
completing.

I have updated to 28.5.0 in MX and in Mint 19.1 Cinnamon.
The new "Check for Updates" entry in the 'Help' dropdown menu is missing in the MX build.
I haven't seen any other way to do an update check.
It does work properly in the other build.

I've attached a screenshot that lists my installed extensions.
Currently using the new default theme.

... Strange, Ctrl + Left mouse clic does not work "to open as new tab" into this Palemoon version here, a bug?

Ah ... thank you for the info. JayM ... then I have to investigate ... (work into Chromium, Firefox, but not Palemoon 28.5.0 here, worked with the previous version)

EDIT: OK, FI it was a plugin, the new version of "Tab Mix Plus" solved this issue.
new one: Tab Mix Plus - Version 0.5.7.0 Installed

You might want to read the Release notes.
http://www.palemoon.org/releasenotes.shtml
v28.5.0 (2019-04-30)
This is a major development and bugfix update.

Changes/fixes:

Redesigned the about box.
Added "Check for updates" menu entries to the AppMenu and classic menu (since the About box redesign no longer has application update in it).
If it is still in another build else where then they modified their build to include it.
Normal people think "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
Engineers think "If it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet".
