Is Pale Moon in Debian repos, no.

AntiX 15(64bit) and MX-14.4 non-pae are on "Live" thumb drives for booting to the Apples, can the thumbs be updated,
no not yet, working on the EFI mess Apple has made for linux(anther subject).

PPA are great for the fast trackers like Kubuntu. The CR repos are great for MX-14, Mepis, keeps packages useful for
the OS. The CR repos and PPA are the same, just at different levels, maybe remember the version may affect the packages
use too.

A couple of folks used the CR repos for Pale Moon to test it out and stevo's build worked. I used Pale Moon's web site
download to a 64bit Debian 8 and it works, the choice is increased and yours.

Another browser to choose, lets see if the folks at Pale Moon keep pace with FF updates.

Did I miss any point of Pale Moon? :popcorn:
Just where the PPA 25.3.1 was compared to Firefox 40--but the versioning is quite different, since security fixes are backported to Pale Moon, and "bloat" features added to recent FF releases are not built.

It's a lot easier for someone to build the packages on a PPA, since all the maintainer does is upload the source and Launchpad's machines build the packages. Pale Moon takes several hours to build one architecture on my laptop running the CPU at full speed.

As noted earlier in the thread, we also have packages built on Jessie in the MX 15 repo.

Could we package up the already built binaries from the palemoon.org page http://linux.palemoon.org/download/mainline/ similar to what we're doing with firefox, thunderbird, seamonkey ?

Might be able to come up with some debian/watch and debian/rules files to do that.

I'm not sure if the Pale moon license allows that--I sort of remember looking at it and thinking it did not on a previous thread, before starting the source builds.

The latest version 25.7.0 is now in the test repository. This is a bugfix and maintenance release. I also added a little postinstall blurb you'll see if you watch the terminal output at the end of the process.

Release Notes.

Please let us know how the install goes and how it performs if you try it out--Thanks!

Thanks, should be good to move to main, then. BTW, Mike has rebuilt 25.7.0 for the Jessie base in the MX 15 test repo, too.

Have been browsing the Pale Moon Forum (PM for Linux). See a few posts there about problems with HTML5. That's new territory for me.
Any comments here?
