Windows 7: Palemoon switching engines to Goanna

Palemoon switching engines to Goanna

Pale Moon - Release Notes


What I am confused on them saying that can't use the Gecko because of trademark issue and a lot of the Palemoon browser itself doesn't use the Gecko Engine. However, Goanna is a fork of the Gecko engine (Link). Both engines operate under the Mozilla public license. If palemoon got into trouble using the Gecko engine, so would other browsers (Iceweasel, cyberfox, waterfox, etc) as well.

What do you think the real reason is for switching engines?

I only have PM x86 installed.

Can we have PM x64 and x86 installed at the same time, and use either ?

I believe all of the flash content freaks out the x64
It used to operate very well :/

Ah, that wouldn't surprise me.
Maybe we'll be seeing another flash update soon

I use the Click to play per-element add-on so i chose what and when flash content plays.
You could try it see if helps.

Yes on 64 bit machine (Caution desktop & taskbar shortcuts will change). When I was using the 64 bit install. I renamed the shorcuts to know which I am using. I also redid the taskbar shortcuts as well. You can't open them at the sametime though.
