Nice one pin  ;)

BTW, how did you get on with the Palemoon version of ICE? It seems fine as a web Skype container on a low-powered PC.

I'm not sure I'll be adding Palemoon support to the default ICE .. it seems to be being supplanted by Waterfox as the most popular Firefox replacement.

As long as a Firefox alternative is present, I'm happy... Although, I didn't have any issues with the Pale Moon SSB's.
I can't install any, anyway... They are to close to Firefox and somehow Netflix thinks I'm running an outdated version of Firefox and doesn't stream. Sorry, but I need to have Netflix somewhere and it's here on Peppermint. Don't have any other choice! Well, I do Google chrome, but that's out of the question... all these chrome/chromium forks just ain't for me!

BTW, thanks murraymint!

Waterfox does look a lot nicer, I think Palemoon was based on a pretty old Firefox. I'm going to give Waterfox a try, it seems pretty fast so far.

Thx!

@Ly
If you want to try basilisk just download the tar file and unpack it with
Code: [Select]
tar -xvf <name of the file>
cd into the newly created directory and run
Code: [Select]
./basilisk
It looks pretty much the same as Firefox before Quantum, but with a komodo dragon instead of a red panda (or fox)

Waterfox is faster here. Maybe I should try Firefox with a clean profile though.

I'm stickig to Firefox here. Is just that, and I've said this too many times already, ...I like to see FF forks, just because there are too many chromium/chrome forks already

If Waterfox is pre-quantum, trust me there's NO WAY it's faster than Firefox .. or even close to it ;)

I don't need to trust anyone, it's noticeably faster on the same PC, with the same websites. Maybe I've got too many of the new-style plugins in Firefox.

It looks like they're not officially branding it as Quantum but the moderator of the Waterfox blog says

Well Quantum is already a part of Waterfox. It was just a collection of improvements in various aspects of the browser made at the same time, so Mozilla just decided to use the umbrella term Quantum so people would know that all these changes were happening. It’s been going on for years, and Firefox 52+ were the finishing touches to it.
