    This is direct evidence that nothing is sacred. I can no longer support FF or anything they claim they're about or stand for. I find it rather disgusting.

    I put it in my bookmarks for now. Thank you.

    As for Pale Moon - testing here is already completed. All systems go 100%, all add-ons go 100%, everything perfect.

    In all honesty, it feels like I am using 10 internet connections at once compared to FF. It is that much faster for everything, with precisely same exact setup as FF. (I copied my profile from FF for it - now only thing left is to delete FF, it's profile, then move Pale Moon profile to my non-boot/system drive like FF was.)

    Don't delete ff's profile, as Palemoon uses the same one.

    No, it doesn't. Maybe the new version I just started with compared to how it was for you, is different.

    It put my profile in C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Roaming\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles <<(I deleted all in there then copied FF profile to there.)

    while my Firefox was at D:\FF

    Perhaps my FF being in a non-default location to begin with is the difference.

    Either way, I have profile backups. Thanks for looking out!

    There is a good little tool I use, just for that...
    Mozbackup
    MozBackup - Backup tool for Firefox and Thunderbird

    It'll back up browser and email.(thunderbird or Seamonkey's built-in email client)

    I just grabbed Pale Moon. I like it. It's the new Firefox.

    Using Win 7, no skydrive.
