PaleMoon v32.3.0 (2023-07-11)

This is a major development update, further improving web compatibility.

Changes/fixes:

  • Added the (hidden) preference browser.history.menuMaxResults to allow users to control how many history entries are listed in the menu. Setting this to 0 will hide history menu entries altogether, and any positive number configures how many entries the entries are limited to. The default if not defined is 15.
  • Switched C++ language level used to C++14 on all platforms.
  • Web compatibility and scripting improvements:
    • Implemented geometry .from* static constructors for web compatibility.
    • Implemented partial support for CSS calc() in color keywords.
    • Implemented Array "find from last" feature (findLast and findLastIndex).
    • Implemented Object.hasOwn(object,property).
    • Implemented several additional Intl API methods and functions. This improves web compatibility with sites making use of things like hourCycle, advanced DateTimeFormat, Intl.Locale, and Intl as a constructor.
  • Cleaned up some unused code.
  • Removed support for Mozilla "experiment" type extensions.
  • Improved the JavaScript garbage collector's sweeping. This should fix a few intermittent crashes and improve performance.
  • Implemented some structural changes to the source to make future porting easier, and preparing for switching to C++17.
  • Removed handling of symlinks for directory linstings to prevent potential security issues by walking symlinks when uploading. This effectively reverts a change made in Firefox 50 where this functionality was introduced. A case of "Not such a good idea after all"
  • Updated the list of extensions on Windows treated as "executable".
  • Security issues addressed: CVE-2023-37208.
  • Made preparations for for requiring Authorization in CORS ACAH preflight.
    Since no browser honors this part of the spec at the moment this is left disabled until there is consensus among browsers.
  • UXP Mozilla security patch summary: 2 fixed, 2 rejected, 20 not applicable.

Apparently, Adobe is phasing-in "the new Adobe experience" since May.   SOME users may receive (and notice) this.  See Introducing the new Acrobat experience (adobe.com)

Among other things, the Menu bar across the top is being replaced with a "hamburger" Menu button.   If you wish to return to the old/customary "experience", click on the hamburger Menu button, and select "Disable new Acrobat Reader", and confirm your desire to restart Reader.

If you wish to try out (or re-enable) the "new" experience, click on VIEW, and select "Enable new Acrobat Reader", and confirm your desire to restart Reader.

Anybody know how to stop the "new experience" Reader from automatically searching for updates?

I've disabled the Adobe task in Task Manager Scheduler and disabled the Adobe Update Service in services.msc but that doesn't stop it.

My firewall pops up a warning every time Adobe Updater wants to check for updates so I know it's still trying to phone home, even with the task and the service disabled...
