Here's a thread with info about how to solve some possible issues with the latest Palemoon.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=115266
For users running on machines with Intel graphics, but probably not all Intel graphics are affected, (I have it also, but no such problems for me)

Hi !
I am not really satisfied with new Versions of Palemoon 28.xxx.
Since all my Add-ons ( Imtranslater-Ublock Origin-Umatrix -Disconnect- Open With ) no longer working and could not find any adequate Substitute ......it does not make any sense for me to use it ( any longer ) .
Lack of Ublock and Umatrix makes this new Version really slow .

So I now did (re) discovered Firefox Quantum again .I am amazed how blazing fast it works .......of course all my Add-Ons are working too .
Also just switched back to Palemoon 27.9.4 and all my Frustrations are gone and my Add-Ons are also back again .

Did give Palemoon 28.4 a real fair Chance.........but sorry .......maybe later ....
What`s your Experience/Opinion ?

Btw:Switched all my Internet Browsers and Thunderbird to "Portable" Versions .

Dont know if there is any Advantage ( beside of being "portable" ) in it or if there are any ( hidden ) Downsides to it . Maybe anybody can explain .
But somehow i like it this Way .

Regards !

@ backi

The current latest Ublock Origin version compatible with Palemoon can be found by going to this page and scrolling down to the first entry headed (in large blue font, thus) "firefox-legacy-x.xx.x.x", then clicking on "uBlock0.firefox-legacy.xpi" and installing in the usual way.

EDIT - Sorry Semme, our posts crossed! Embarassed
Though many thanks to you and 666philb for that link and add-on, didn't know about it

Hi Salty Dog -----Semme !

Thanks for Advice ....... so i got all my Add-ons working on Palemoon 28.4 .

But........still not convinced from Version 28.4 -----
Made some Test....... even Palemoon 27.9.4 is definitely snappier----
Using 64 Bit Versions on a Dell Precision M6600 with enough Horsepower .....
As a ( former) hard-core Palemoon User ..... sorry but i have to say..... Firefox Quantum is a Beast...........can`t be beat by Palemoon (in my Case ) ......lightning fast .....easy on Cpu .....low on ram (on a 64Bit Os ....posting now from it on Devuan Dog with E17( in Reality E22) Enlightenment Desktop ) .

Seems i am back now to Firefox .....unless someone can give me some real good Reasons to keep Palemoon which i doubt that it will happen .(means .....make it faster )
Probably Palemoon is better for older Laptops which is (no longer ) the Case for me .
Maybe later (again) .

Edit :
O.K Palemoon 27.9.4 and Firefox are nearly equal fast .......but 28.4 still a Problem Child .
