[FireFox] Pale Moon 12.1 released

Pale Moon 12.1 released! - Tue May 22, 2012
A major update to the browser, implementing a number of visual and under-the-hood changes.

Security fixes:
• bug #745580 Thebes: handle bad results from Core Text shaping more robustly.
• bug #744541 XPCOM i/o: Charset conversion issue.
• bug #748613 Javascript: Scope vulnerability
• bug #747688 Layout engine: Drop references for all destroyed frames
• Security update of the included MSVC runtime libraries

Enhancements and fixes:
• Dynamic smooth scrolling algorithm for mouse/keyboard implemented. Smooth scrolling is now also enabled by default.
• Update to the status bar code to fix pop-up status not switching sides on mouse-over, as well as using a safer allocation/destruction mechanism for controls (potentially preventing memory leaks).
• Fixed: cache size override on new profiles (would be set to 1GB instead of the application default of 200MB). Bug 20120512-GN.
• Addition of a number of preferences in the Tabs category of the options dialog box:
- A checkbox for inserting related tabs next to the current tab when opening a link;
- A checkbox for closing the browser window when the last tab is closed;
- A selection for new tabs: Choose from a blank page, the Pale Moon start page or the Quickdial page.
• Some slight color has been re-introduced in the navigation elements to improve clarity of the UI.
• Disabled an image decoding library with hazardous code. This has no impact on the browser's image decoding capabilities or performance as alternative methods for decoding are used by default.
• Some changes to memory handling which potentially keep memory use better within bounds.
• A change to the build environment to improve stability of Javascript. Note that this is a trade-off and may result in a slight drop in synthetic benchmarking performance of the browser compared to the previous version of Pale Moon. The impact of this on overall real-world performance of the browser is negligible.
