Pale Moon unstable releases - release notes

These release notes are for pre-release versions of Pale Moon. They may include notes for public betas and the "rolling" unstable channel.
Please understand that these release notes are concise summaries, nothing more, and not an exhaustive record of all changes.

If you find bugs in these versions, please report them in the issue tracker on GitHub for UXP. When you do so, please check if the bug has already been reported before by others to prevent duplicate entries in the tracker. If you report bugs, make sure to include the build date (as found in the about box) and provide clear information about the bug:
  • Clear indication of what version of the browser this was found in (x86, x64, Windows, Linux, exact version and build (see "About" box))
  • Clear description of the bug found, with a concise and clear title for the issue
    (include exact circumstances and exact error messages, if any)
  • Steps to reproduce
    (what exactly do you do to cause the bug to become apparent?)
  • Expected results
    (given the steps taken, what did you expect the browser to do?)
  • Actual results
    (what did the browser do instead of what was expected?)
Also make sure that before you report a bug, that you verify if the bug also manifests with default preferences and no installed add-ons (preferably create a new profile to check).

Current trunk progress (major and recent changes only):

  • Implemented CustomElements v1. (preffed, not functional yet due to reliance on shadowDOM).
  • Changed the way Firefox extensions are displayed in the add-on manager (provide a clear warning).
  • Denied other types of add-ons that aren't explicitly targeting Pale Moon's ID.
  • Updated bookmark backups code with the other half of what should have been done way back when.
  • Added a preference (browser.bookmarks.editDialog.showForNewBookmarks) to enable immediately showing the edit dialog for new bookmarks.
    If set to true, clicking the star in the address bar will pop open the edit dialog immediately for changing details/sorting.
  • Fixed the useragent string in native mode, and updated UA code to properly respond to live changes to some preferences.
  • Tidied up front-end browser JavaScript.
  • Changed the way sources are compiled (on-going de-unification).
  • Improved compatibility with gcc v10
  • Removed support for the obsolete and unmaintained NVidia 3DVision stereoscopic interface.
  • Fixed some build issues in non-standard configurations.
  • Fixed wrong positions when calculating the position for position:absolute child inside a table.
  • Removed support for the <marquee> element.
  • Aligned file name extension of saved url files with other applications (lower case)
  • Fixed building with --disable-webspeech (to disable speech synthesis)
  • Added global menubar support for GTK.
  • Implemented node.getRootNode
  • Implemented AbortController (Abort API)
  • Improved the uninstaller to use elevation when prudent and actually remove program files.
  • Fixed a rare issue with editable page content.
  • Fixed a crash related to ES module scripts.
