>Master Password and passwords

I remember researching this several years ago. (I realize we are discussing Pale Moon ...) Back in the day, one needed a master password to encrypt the passwords. This is from 2009:

Mozilla's page about the Master Password, updated in 2018:

Pale Moon forum entry by Moonchild (developer of Pale Moon), dated 2016:

https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.ph ... ted#p81494

A very recent discussion about the Master Password on the Pale Moon forums (note Moonchild has included a link to a bug report and the bug report contains a link to Mozilla's bug report):

Thanks! What's the bottom line of all this? Greetings, Joe

Pale Moon has been updated to 27.8.2 in the main repository. This is a security update.

Changes/fixes:

Privacy fix: prevented update checks for the default theme.
Added a user-agent override for Dropbox to improve compatibility with their service.
Fixed an issue with mouseover handling related to (CVE-2018-5103). DiD
Disabled the Mac OSX Nano allocator. DiD
Fixed (CVE-2018-5129) OOB Write.
Updated the lz4 library to 1.8.0 to solve potential issues. DiD
Fixed (CVE-2018-5137) Path traversal on chrome:// URLs
Fixed several memory safety an synchronicity hazards.

DiD This means that the fix is "Defense-in-Depth": It is a fix that does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered.

The new 27.9.0 release has now landed in the main repository! Changes are:

* New release:
- Fixed a number of spec compliance issues in our media subsystem.
- Added a trailing slash to referrers when policy is set to fix some web
compatibility issues.
- Fixed the property order in Object.getOwnPropertyNames(string) and others
for web compatibility.
- Updated RegExp(RegExp object, flags) to the ES6 standard specification.
- Changed the embedded font from the no longer free EmojiOne to the
open-licensed Twemoji (with additional fixes). This also further extends
unicode support to Unicode 10 emoji(s). Please note that as a result, color
emoji(s) will look different than before.
- Adjusted some things in our memory allocator code to provide, among other
things, better allocation alignment on Windows.
- Made the attempt to migrate people from the old sync server domain name to
the current one more aggressive. We will be retiring the old
pmsync.palemoon.net Sync server address shortly to remove the need for us
to maintain a security certificate for it; this preference migration should
automatically put everyone on the correct server address when upgrading.
- Made reading of the sessionstore synchronous, to speed up startup and
prevent the homepage from being loaded when restoring a session.
- Added a fix to switch to the correct window/tab when a web notification
is clicked.
- Changed the placeholder text to not include "Search" when all search
functions from the address bar are disabled.
- Enabled the use of Skia for canvas on Linux and OSX.
- Worked around a potential cause for some non-standard bitmapped fonts
ending up with incorrect line heights (I'm looking at you, Noto fonts!).
- Added a workaround for incorrectly-encoded JPEG-XR images with planar
alpha. Ultimately, the jxrlib reference implementation should be fixed to
encode according to spec.
- Aligned XCTO:nosniff allowed script MIME types with the updated spec.
- Improved the logic for storing vector images in the surface cache.
- Fixed character set handling for XMLHttpRequests.

Updated to 27.9.1 in the main repo.
* New upstream maintenance update:
- Removed the unused/incomplete places protocol handler.

with the playability of some live streams.
- Ported across jemalloc improvements from UXP.
- Ported across cairo mutex improvements from UXP.
- Added support for FFmpeg 4.0/libavcodec 58.
- Added a fix for Windows 10's "isAlpha()" not being what one would expect
in v1803.

Hi guys, not a lot of time todyay, so just a quick note (yeah right, right?) ;)

Remember that weird, possibly screensaver related issue I mentinoed awhile ago ... the one that triggers a funky looking desktop with a huge 150px+ border around everything and missing window decorations ... a problem which corrects itself inexplicably after a little while ... ???

PALEMOON is the culprit. If my system runs stable without any hitches for a few days, while using nothing but FF and keeping it open (minimized) on the screen, followed by then opening Palemoon .... bamm, that weird crash thingie whatever it is, occurs. I can duplicate it without a problem and there does appear an x-screensaver message of sorts with 2 errors on the screen. As stated, I can duplicate this and so far only palemoon has been able to cause this on my machine. I took photos of the screen, just don't have time to upload them today.

No, please don't advise not to use a screensaver. If any fix on MX requires the lack of using a screensaver ... then screensavers should be removed from MX. That would be the correct solution, instead of implying that something which is used by countless millions of people, should not be used anymore. I'll be back tomorrow to post those photos. Screenshots of the full problem are impossible because every time that the mouse is clicked or a keyboard key tapped, the screen changes again ... eventually returning to normal. Happy Fathersday for all of you Dads out there (in Germany) !!! :happy:
