News: The UXP Browser Bundle now includes build-able copies of Interlink and Borealis Navigator.

What is this page?

This page provides source tarballs for the UXP Browser Bundle including Albus Luna.

Albus Luna is a Classic Firefox (tm) work-alike based on a well-known Firefox (tm) fork.

The up­stream fork — Pale Moon (tm) — is con­sid­er­ed to be important but is dis­tri­bu­ted under re­stric­tive terms and con­di­tions. Albus Luna exists to pro­vide the FOSS com­mun­i­ty with a de­ri­va­tive that can be mod­i­fied without issues. Such as death threats from Matt Tobin of Kokomo-Greentown.

Albus Luna is, in short, a pre-Quantum Classic Firefox (tm) fork that you can mod­i­fy largely as you wish.

As a re­la­ted goal, the intention is assemble a few of the best XUL ex­ten­sions from the past 10 to 20 years and to ship them with Albus Luna. In some cases, the ex­ten­sions will be pre-in­stall­ed and in other cases they'll be avail­able but not in­stall­ed.

The browser comes with ScrapBook X, Tab Mix Plus, and Saved Password Editor pre-in­stall­ed and more ex­ten­sions will be add­ed.

The UXP Browser Bundle features Albus Luna and 7 other Mozilla pro­grams in one easy-to-build source tree:

Classic Firefox — As Albus Luna
Pre-Quantum Firefox — As Iceweasel
Netscape — Or a reason­able facsimile
Seamonkey — As Blue Gorilla
Thunderbird — As Icedove
Chatzilla — As Ambassador
Borealis Navigator

Unpack the source tarball, install a few de­pen­den­cies, and run a single “bash” script. 3 hours later — de­pend­ing on hardware — you're fully Mozilla'd up with 6, count 'em, 6, Mozilla pro­grams that include XUL sup­port and no need for Rust.

It's never been this easy to fill your distro to burst­ing with pre-Quantum non-Rust Mozilla soft­ware. XUL Forever is the endeavour.

Some caveats:

This is a pre-beta source tree intended for devel­op­ers. There are a num­ber of rough edges.

One example is that most of the Help links and simi­lar links which are built into the pro­grams go to Error 404 pages and/or obso­lete pages. This issue will be addressed over time.

The source tarball omits git histories. There's not much point to them since up­stream has deleted most of the history entries.

Netscape Lives Again
UXP Netscape browser fork

To address a ques­tion that has been received: No, it doesn't seem to be an I.P. violation of any type to dis­tri­bute FOSS source code descended over decades from Netscape (tm) that happens to build a work-alike to the orig­inal browser; with or with­out images that are trademarked.
