7-ZIP packed Windows versions

These are simply 7-zipped versions of the Pale Moon browser. Perfect for testing, advanced use, and quick use (unpack and run). Note that this is not a portable browser, it stores its data in the normal user folders on the system (documents/settings or users folder).

Portable Windows versions

You've enjoyed Pale Moon at home, or at the office. You've wondered if you could use it elsewhere: in a library, on a public computer, in a cybercafé... You need something portable, that is as simple as plugging in your USB stick and running your favorite browser, with all your bookmarks and passwords at your fingertips? Then here is the answer: Pale Moon Portable!
Following the trend of other browsers, a portable installation has been created, which, thanks to winPenPack's X-launcher that the portable launcher is based on, is completely self-contained. Nothing is stored on the host computer; your bookmarks, passwords, history, downloads, etc. stay neatly where they belong: on your stick.

Note: these portables are not meant to have file/URL associations or integration with the desktop. Their settings cater specifically to use on multiple hosts, run from removable media.

If you require desktop integration of any kind (including pinned taskbar entries, launching a mail application from mailto: links, remembering default download locations, etc.), it is recommended that you do not use Pale Moon Portable, but the normal desktop version instead! Pale Moon portable has been specifically designed to take with you on removable media with high wear and slow access, and its default settings reflect this. Using it on a stationary computer has a number of drawbacks and is not recommended.

How do I use this?

Three simple steps:
  1. Download the Pale Moon Portable file (below)
  2. Extract the contents of the file to your USB stick in a folder of your choice:
    Run the .EXE file and tell it where to unpack (should be an empty or new folder)
  3. Run palemoon-portable.exe (not palemoon.exe) in the location you unpacked to
That's it! Simple enough?
The first time you run Pale Moon Portable, it may take a fairly long time to load, because it creates a new personal profile on your USB stick for you. This can take some time, also depending on the speed of your stick - up to 30 seconds, usually. After that, it will be much faster to start.

Of course, you don't have to use a USB stick; any writable medium would work: External harddisk, a networked drive, even an MP3 player if it allows you to access it as a drive in Windows.
Do note however that Pale Moon Portable doesn't run from read-only media like CD-ROM or DVD-ROM; it needs write access to the location it is run from.

Updating the portable version

Although it is possible to use the built-in updater of the portable browser, this will only update the embedded version of Pale Moon and you will miss any changes or enhancements to the portable launcher or environment which will occasionally change. The recommended way of upgrading is downloading a new portable version, then copying the user folder from the old version to the new one.
