   * KeePassXC a fork of KeePass, is possible a better solution for Slackware users wishing to use an advanced secure password manager with Pale Moon. The plugin KeePassHttp which can be found [[https://​slackbuilds.org/​repository/​14.2/​misc/​KeePassHttp/​|here]],​ used in combination with add-ons like PassIFox, found [[https://​addons.mozilla.org/​en-US/​firefox/​addon/​passifox/​|here]],​ might prove more enjoyable then the before mentioned KeePass and KeeFox combination -- the reason being, among many possible reasons, is that KeePassXC is a Linux native port of KeePass; and the most recent versions of PassIFox add-on work with current versions of Pale Moon. It should be noted that, PassIFox and KeePassHttp should also work with the before mentioned version of KeePass. ​   * KeePassXC a fork of KeePass, is possible a better solution for Slackware users wishing to use an advanced secure password manager with Pale Moon.

-  * The theme [[ https://​bugzilla.mozilla.org/​show_bug.cgi?​id=733324#​c9| "​Oxygen gtk" (liboxygen-gtk.so) has been known to cause crashes in FireFox ]], and, in my experience does cause random crashes in Pale Moon. In my experience, the likelihood of crashing increases when an attempt to access history is made. As far as I know, this bug only effects ​FireFox and Pale Moon if the gtk 2 version of this theme is used. There is some question to whether or not this is a palemoon bug (old FireFox bug), or a bug in the theme itself.+  * The theme [[ https://​bugzilla.mozilla.org/​show_bug.cgi?​id=733324#​c9| "​Oxygen gtk" (liboxygen-gtk.so) has been known to cause crashes in FireFox ]], and, in my experience does cause random crashes in Pale Moon.

   * It appears that the Oxygen theme in KDE when used causes Pale Moon to crash; apparently, if the appearance in KDE is changed from "​Oxygen"​ to something else the crashes cease to happen.   * It appears that the Oxygen theme in KDE when used causes Pale Moon to crash; apparently, if the appearance in KDE is changed from "​Oxygen"​ to something else the crashes cease to happen.

-  - Arguable ​the best solution would be to install a patched oxygen theme that does not suffer from the bug that causes Pale Moon to crash. ​aleinBOB ​provides a patched oxygen theme; which can be found [[http://​www.slackware.com/​~alien/​slackbuilds/​oxygen-gtk2/​|here]].+  - Arguably ​the best solution would be to install a patched oxygen theme that does not suffer from the bug that causes Pale Moon to crash. ​alienBOB ​provides a patched oxygen theme; which can be found [[http://​www.slackware.com/​~alien/​slackbuilds/​oxygen-gtk2/​|here]].
   - The most obvious work around is to use a theme other than Oxygen, or at the very least, find a version of the Oxygen theme that does not cause Pale Moon to crash or segfault (if there is such a version). ​   - The most obvious work around is to use a theme other than Oxygen, or at the very least, find a version of the Oxygen theme that does not cause Pale Moon to crash or segfault (if there is such a version). ​
   - Anther possible work around is to only change the theme Pale Moon is using (so that only Pale Moon is not using the Oxygen gtk theme) -- to do this, enter the following command into a terminal (for example): <​code>​GTK2_RC_FILES=/​usr/​share/​themes/​Adwaita/​gtk-2.0/​gtkrc palemoon-27.9.3</​code>​   - Anther possible work around is to only change the theme Pale Moon is using (so that only Pale Moon is not using the Oxygen gtk theme) -- to do this, enter the following command into a terminal (for example): <​code>​GTK2_RC_FILES=/​usr/​share/​themes/​Adwaita/​gtk-2.0/​gtkrc palemoon-27.9.3</​code>​
