Thanks for the Pale Moon link, Emilia. But I seem to be running into 
circles now:

# wine64 ./palemoon-27.6.2.win64.installer.exe
fixme:winediag:start_process Wine Staging 2.17 is a testing version 
containing experimental patches.
fixme:winediag:start_process Please mention your exact version when 
filing bug reports on
err:winedevice:ServiceMain Failed to load L"win32k.sys"
err:winedevice:ServiceMain Failed to load L"win32k.sys"

# file palemoon-27.6.2.win64.installer.exe
palemoon-27.6.2.win64.installer.exe: PE32 executable (GUI) Intel 80386, 
for MS Windows, UPX compressed

So wine64 and file both think that this is actually a 386 binary ?

Thanks & Regards,
