Hi, was wondering if anyone has experience with 'palenoon' as an alternative to firefox for using DPR (digital pali reader), firefox is problematic as its updates render DPR unusable...? thnks

Bhante,

I successfully use Palemoon and Waterfox for DPR.

DPR works in both of them.

There's 'Download' button on the frontpage of both websites. Clicking on it, you will download those browsers.

After installation, you can open these browsers, head to https://pali.sirimangalo.org/ and click on "Digital Pali Reader" to add the add-on.

I believe if one is going to use Firefox for the DPR is it better to use the ESR version rather than just an old version of the main product with security updates turned off...
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/

It looks like it will be supported for at least some time with security updates.
