    Is there a tool to migrate from Quantum to Palemoon?
    What does it do, and what can it not do?

    Thanks

    No there isn't. You'll have to export bookmarks, passwords etc from Quantum and import into PM

    I never had top add code like that, where can I learn that? Although I cannot imagine that there is a safe way to do it: Is it possible to copy the saved passwords from Firefox?

    Otherwise. I have been pleasantly surprised by palemoon... so far.
    Streaming f.e. is a desaster on Firefox, works a lot better on Palemoon.

    Fast Dial however does not really work .... :oops:

    paste "caa:addon/add-to-search-bar" (without the " ") in your address bar in pale moon once you've installed the classic archive addon.

    or search for Add to Search Bar, leave out the 2.9.

    Thank You.... but:

    "Pale Moon doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (caa) isn't associated with any program."

    But the real problem is that I cannot get IDM to work.... Although Palemoon is added to the browser list, the IDM integration procedure given by them does not work. I sent them a mail, and usually they are good at support....

    I'm a little confused. Did you install CAA into PM? If you downloaded the "ca-archive-1.2.2.xpi"
    then drag the file into any PM window to get the install dialog. Once installed there should be a button on the toolbars and a link in "Menu>Tools" to open the archive in a tab.

    I use DownThemAll! 3.0.8 for my downloading.

    No, I did NOT intall it into PM.

    WhenI do as you wrote and put caa:addon/add-to-search-barinto the search bar of palemoon, then I get this pop up:

    The address wasn’t understood

    Pale Moon doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (caa) isn't associated with any program.

    You might need to install other software to open this address.

    For the caa: URLs to work, you MUST install the CAA extension into Pale Moon, as these addresses point to resources the CAA extension provides..

    Thank you, but the forist might have mentioned that ... These are reasons why people who use Firefox refuse to try out other browsers. The kind of help you get makes it such an enormous waste of time. Almost each and every time you you try! You try, and you search, and you check,. because you assume that advice is correct....
    So... Thank you... I found a few things I use PM for, the rest stays with Ff esr

    The CAA extension is essentially a collection of all the old XUL-based extensions. Once it is installed, any of the legacy extensions can be installed without the need to rely on online resources. The caa: addresses are only shortcuts to the internal update archive.

    Of course, the latest Fx versions cannot use XUL-based extensions anymore, so the CAA extension is not for them.
