If that is included, could its use be made optional somehow please?

I've just build 27.3.0 on 14.2 from the SlackBuild, changing only the
version number. For my personal usage, I've seen no problems with the
result yet. I understand others may have different usage patterns or
frequent sites which trigger problems and therefore need something extra
like this. However it would be a shame to inflict it on all those who don't.


PS. I've seen only vague descriptions of the problems people are having
when using the new PaleMoon not built with the earlier gcc version. It
would be good to see something more definite  about these problems so
others can test/verify them.
