I made the jump to Pale Moon and it's working well for me, but I am curious. Why does Pale Moon play flash content where Firefox does not. It is a matter of plugins on the developer side? What's the difference?
These days, I find that Flash "just works". I only have windoze on my PC, and I only occasionally use it for playing games. My daily driver is a laptop with openSUSE, which I started using at 12.3 or whatever the last version was before 13.
Of course I've heard all the complaints about Firefox, from the aggressive memory footprint (still not as bad as Chrome, IMO) to the insane size of the codebase and its terrible documentation. I even have a friend who doesn't use it because when he closes it, it won't let him restart because "Firefox is still running".
I say again, it's all pretty weird because Firefox is the ONLY browser I use, and since the improved Flash for Linux I can watch and use any Flash content on the internet without any discernible difference from windoze.
I know, I know... Do I want a medal, or public accolades because I'm the only person it works for? Of course not.
I still think that the issue with Firefox not restarting properly for my friend is a memory problem, possibly related to his RAM and the way windoze is allocating the memory space. It could be that the Flash issues others are complaining about are also hardware related.
Who knows? I'm just saying. I'll also let myself out, and the door won't hit me in the ass...
