Install Pale Moon Browser on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Pale Moon Browser on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Pale Moon is an open-source web browser for Windows and Linux, developed with a focus on efficiency and customization. It is a fork of the Firefox browser, aiming to provide a familiar and user-friendly browsing experience while preserving the traditional design and features. The browser uses its own layout and rendering engine, Goanna, which is a fork of Gecko, the engine used by Firefox. This allows Pale Moon to maintain compatibility with many Firefox extensions and themes while offering a unique browsing experience.

The browser is known for its lightweight nature, optimized for modern processors, and carefully selected features and optimizations. It also emphasizes user privacy and security, offering various options for customization and control over the browsing experience. Pale Moon is designed to be familiar to users of the old versions of Firefox, making it a suitable alternative for those who prefer the classic look and feel of a web browser.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Pale Moon Browser on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 22.04, 20.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
