Install latest Palemoon on Elive 3.0.6 Stable

As the title says, it works with the latest Palemoon.
I'm writing this post on my old Thinkpad X61 from it! :w00t:
Here's a screenshot as proof:

All that has to be done is download the tar.gz file from their website, unpack it and then run from that directory.....It even upgrades itself from there.
Their earliest .deb version is for Debian 8.0 so will not install on Stable.

Methinks this should be added by default, thus bypassing the common "browser is out of date" complaint and making Stable 3.0.6 usable for a considerable longer time. :madness:

The file is downloadable here:
https://linux.palemoon.org/download/mainline/

In short: Kick FF altogether and make Palemoon the standard browser in Stable.

Always cracks me up, this name :rofl2:; I would never be able to get passed installing it!

My point being you wouldn't have to, on Stable .... it'll be there by default replacing outdated FF.

Updating the iso can be a dangerous thing (many bugs will come), not sure how good idea this can be :slight_smile:

Then let's try it !!

You've got an entire group of beta-testers, that is currently beta testing a beta version that should probably be turned into a stable retro version after we fix the last few bugs.

I know at least I can spare the time, if you post the new ISO here first...once it's downloaded.

And installing palemoon really didn't introduce any bugs for me ... not sure for you.

Agreed, confirmed and voted...

PS @triantares:
What made you change your mind -
in the past you was not so convinced of Pale Moon?

Actually there is a. deb file for Debian.
Pale Moon is my daily driver nowadays, BTW :+1:

not debian wheezy

Probably because its the only modern browser that works decently without any hoops

Any update ? We just need a new iso with palemoon installed, we don't even need a new iso with more up to date packages (though that WOULD be better), we just need that.
