what problem is that ?
You can't playback youtube video without re-downloading it even if you've fully loaded it.... Do you know how to fix this issue for firefox 3.63?

Did you use the Install version or the Zip version? The Zip version just unzips the .exe and then you can make a shortcut.

I made the shortcut on the desktop... though using the zip version I find that I can not delete the folder else the shortcut doesn't work... I was refering to being able to uninstall it if I want as it doesn't appear in the programs and features nor in the programs folder with a uninstall option...

If you used the Zip version it does not install anything. It unpacks the program into the Pale Moon folder and the shortcut points to the .exe file and executes it to open the browser. To uninstall just delete the shortcut and the Pale Moon folder.

It does, by the way, not really matter if you use Pale Moon, Blazing Fast, tete, or pigfoot builds of Firefox. All of them use similar compiler settings, and you'll probably get the same results on your machine.
(However I prefer pigfoot builds because of their better artwork. *g*)

I don't really understand why the Mozilla people don't provide optimized builds themselves; but that's the advantage of the open source model. May it live long and prosper.

Because some of these are also leaving things out in their optimizations, and the overall a 5%-10% performance difference on a web browser completely doesn't matter.

A typical page might take 2 seconds to download, and 33 ms to render, a 10% faster browser isn't going to touch the 2 seconds to download, just the 33 ms to render.

So now it takes 2 seconds (download) and 30 ms to render. It just doesn't matter.

Heck I recorded almost 800% difference between Internet Explorer and Chrome Dev, yet you can barely ever notice an actual difference, because on most pages the download time will swamp the render time.

a small update, that might be interesting for others that useTabMixPlus.

i earlier posted that: if "TabMix-Plus" had worked with FF 3.7a i would have used it, so im waiting for an update to "TabMix-Plus"...

today i found a new betaversion of "TabMixPlus" that works on FF 3.7a5pre:
http://https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1122#install-beta

so im back to using FF now, mainly because there seems to be a bug in PM,
when switching from fullscreen (a "normal", not F11) to a window, its very small & cannot be resized.

but 3.7a5 is also faster then PM...

i tried pale moon, seems to work ok, there are at least one firefox addons that it does not work with & throws up an error until you uninstall the addon. the newest version uses it's own profile location rather than sharing firefox's, so this is not a killer as i can use firefox when i want that addon to be effective and pale moon otherwise, if i so desired. this is an improvement over earlier versions. they even provide a profile copying utility that duplicates your firefox profile in pale moon's preferred location, which worked perfectly.

however, when i used the developers feedback link to report the addon error i received a very patronizing reply requesting that i stop reporting it as a bug and that it was the addons fault, not theirs, and that the addon was no good anyway, and that they were an expert in that field and i should bow to their superiority of knowledge and not use it. i am an old fart, who has worked in computer support and security for a long time, as well as having run a customer relations team for an enterprise level software firm, so i did not take their approach at customer relations well and will not be using or recommending their product on the forum i moderate on another site. as they do not seem to want any critical bug reports or feedback, i see no need to clutter up my pc with pale moon. in closing, revo uninstaller removes pale moon effectively.
