    I wouldn't install that on any OS. Never heard of this dev, who knows what you are installing.

    Manchild/Tobin derailed MyPal because of some "technicality." I think the kid just wanted to derail competition, or people who were piggybacking off of their work (which is exactly what they do with Mozilla).

    It was never approached in a cordial or professional manner. Quite the opposite. The dude was a man-child.

    For those of you wondering why MyPal developer Feodor has been relatively quiet this may explain why. He was fairly active on a sub-forum at MSFN where he and Roytam, Serpent/NewMoon maintainer also posted and exchanged ideas.

    https://msfn.org/board/profile/422860-feodor2/

    He hasn't logged on there since Feb 23 but looking at his country of origin offers a grim clue - Ukraine.

    His last post at his Github repository was Feb 26.

    https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal/issues/57#issuecomment-1052931953

    We are all aware of the crisis in Ukraine and I'm not here to start a political debate but rather raise awareness of his plight and dedication to the XP community to those new to this forum as well as those who use MyPal/Centaury but are unfamiliar with the author.

    I doubt he is aware of the following he has here since he never registered but I know I am not alone when it comes to admiring his contributions to our favorite OS.

    Let's hope for the best and keep him and the rest of those affected by this senseless war in our thoughts.

    I hope he's ok and stay's ok.
    I am really looking forward to the new browser he is developing.

    Looks like our old friend Feodor is alive, well and continuing his MyPal development. He just released MyPal 68 based on Firefox Quantum 68.

    https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal68/

    It is a test release and therefore unstable. I have done brief testing and found it to be compatible with the same websites as PaleMoon - no BitChute etc.

    This is an early release and hopfully Feodor will work out all the bugs and improve compatibility. On the plus side it can install any extensions from Mozilla addons that are compatible with Firefox 68.

    I saw this yesterday, as I dropped in to the github. I "installed" v68, and none of my previous browser add-ons seem to work or show up.

    I've got to have noscript, adblock, and "cookie monster" working.

    MyPal 68 is based on Firefox Quantum 68 so older extensions won't work.
    You should be able to find newer versions of those extensions at addons.mozilla.org.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/noscript/
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cookie-monster/
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/

    Ublock Origin is by far the best adblocking extension for all browsers. Bar none.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/

    If you are still using older mozilla browsers (PaleMoon/MyPal/Serpent etc.) those extensions
    don't work on newer versions of Mozilla browsers so unless the authors rewrote them you will
    have to find equivalents from other authors.

    I'm familiar with the extension issue. It's just unfortunate, as they don't make them like they used to (or so I think).

    You're absolutely correct. They don't make them like they used to. Legacy extensions (XUL) for older Mozilla browsers work perfectly if you disable Javascript. Current extensions from addons.moziila (WEBEX) don't work at all if you disable Javascript.

    I like to surf using MyPal with Javascript disabled because websites load much much faster. Some just give you a blank page or 'please enable javascript' message but 90% of sites can be viewed with Javascript disabled.

    Javascript just makes websites bloated IMHO.
