Installing Pale Moon [TAR] in P10 SOLVED
« on: May 19, 2020, 08:08:46 am »
dirived from the post 'A Newbie Discussion'

Some noddy or noddies [at google?] decided that it was handy [cool?] to have tabs along the top edge of the browser [chrome] instead of along the top of the actual site area [often called tabs on top] so that adress and bookmarks bars form a separator. Many browsers including Firefox now tow this line and even removed the 'on top' option. Pale Moon [a Firefox dirivative]: is my alternative in Windows. I now find there are more browsers available in the Linux community which still have my preferred Tabs on top [of the site field] option which is good news. Just as amatter of interest can I get Pale Moon running in P10? I picked up the TAR from the Pale Moon site, and extracted it. None of the instructions for installation via Terminal work, practically speaking I get 'no such file or directory' or when something does start it comes back with a 'failed' message. Even the [correct] instructions for installing a TAR, IN PEPPERMINT, would help...

Answer from 'murraymint'  quote              All I can tell you is that a tar is just an archive and usually contains instructions within it for the software. If they don't work you'd need to post the specifics of what you're typing in and what response you get.

Thanks so far: I shall get back to this post with examples, if I understand correctly a TAR is not a guarantee for successful installation?

IIUC, you want your tabs to appear above the black border of Firefox?


 


I see no option for that in my preferred browser, composer, email,irc client Seamonkey... from which Palemoon is a fork...

As for installation of .tar files, have you reviewed this thread? https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,8780.msg89624.html#msg89624


Also, many thanks for breaking up that OP

Apparently, I misunderstood, you prefer your tabs below the bookmark tool bar


 


I see that is the preferred and ONLY option for tabs in my preferred browser, composer, email,irc client Seamonkey... from which Palemoon is a fork...

My apologies for leading your new thread astray. I split my tangent off elsewhere

Exactly, as I had put this together anyway, here is an example of two browsers [together in one image] with the two different tabs situations. Thanks for the interest.   lliam

That is I was intending to insert a jpg here, but how? Atatchments and other options has no further connect and if I use the Insert Image button I get:      no manner of copying and pasting gets the image into the post, help?

Hi lliam53,

Follow this tutorial's video;)

Use of the forum's Search function is something that all new users should learn. Try it with the search terms "insert image."  8)
