optimized Firefox browser Pale Moon is a Firefox clone that has been optimized for for Windows Operating Systems with current, high performance processors. It looks identical to the standard Firefox browser and supports Firefox extensions, themes and identities. All your existing extensions, bookmarks and settings are imported during the installation, so, except for the logo, you won`t notice any difference in functionality. What you may notice however is a difference in speed due to the optimized code which will results in faster scripting and page rendering as well as (slightly) lower memory consumptions. Pale Moon is based on the Firefox source and offers the same levels of security. It supports most Firefox features with the exception of accessibility features and parental control features which have been disabled for performance reasons. Copyright

Love it 5 stars by mak0058588 Feb 12, 2020
I used Firefox for years. As time went on it seemed that every time I got it set up for the way I wanted it, they would update it and ruin my settings. It got so that I could hardly do any customization. I found Pale Moon is a simple, easy to use and set up program that is very much like Firefox. I now have everything the way "I" like it and it does everything that I want it to do. show Review details
Great progam, beats firefox 5 stars by highcloud63 Jun 04, 2019
Now I have my tabs on bottom and hidden tab bar when one tab showing. You can use theme maker to customize the looks. It's fast an so far it hasn't consistently nagged me to update. The add ons are a little lacking in choices but that may improve in time. It's what firefox should have been, I'm not going back unless they mess it up like firefox did. show Review details
Does Not import your existing extensions and bookm 2 stars by henerey773 Aug 28, 2018 (Read all my 34 reviews)
Not only did it NOT import during the installation, it seemed to have NO facility for importing other than bookmarking one's manually opened Firefox "bookmarks.html", and for extensions and themes only a one-by-one open/install (if you know how to find them). If you want a FF clone that does import everything on install, try Waterfox. PM does run fine otherwise and is free and also free of some of the cruft FF imposes. show Review details
