@Monkey_Punch It's not I'm against change if it improves the browser, but web extensions just do not have the same capability as the current XUL system. So many authors are just throwing in the towel or creating web extension add-ons that just simply can't do what they did with the old system

I've used Firefox since it rose from the ashes on Netscape long ago. I've Preached to others how great it was. The one thing that made Firefox stand out above the other browsers was the ability to customize it and make it your own browser. That is becoming a thing of the past and this browser may very well meet the same fate as Netscape.

It's Waterfox for me, as it's developer has forked off of previous mozilla builds and allows the old extensions.
"All of the other browsers are going in this direction" That's just it, why even use FIREFOX if it is no different from chrome. Go ahead and follow FF off of that cliff.

Gawd! Boo hoo, your ancient and no longer supported add-on no longer work. All other browsers are going in this directon but you don't see their users complaining. Tell the author to convert to Webextensions and join the 21st century. It's like listening to XP users complaining that web sites and other apps don't work right anymore. No *hit! Get a modern OS and get with the times! The web and the way browsers interact with it will be *nothing* like it is in a few years. To keep malicious web sites and other bad guys at bay, the browser world has to change. Adapt or die.

It's Waterfox for me as well. Cyberfox and others have thrown in the towel, but it appears Waterfox is going to fork and allow XUL extensions.

Everyone tried to tell you MOZILLA, that the ONE thing that made Firefox stand out was the ability to customize it to make it your browser. That is now a thing of the past and unfortunately Firefox, which I have used since it rose from the ashes of Netscape is soon about to meet the same fate as Netscape. I mean, take one look at the reviews..... Thanks Mozilla for ruining something special

FF has always been my default browser until the new versions came out. It's useless. I've been using Cyberfox and it works very well and d is my default browser. Why does Cyberfox work and FF doesn't? when FF comes up with a new version like the latest ff48 final. i always give it a shot, with the same unusable results, yet other reviewers say that all is fine and dandy. Could it be Win 10? My rating for FF is zero. It doesn't even rate a 1.

I recently upgraded from FF 42.0 to FF 43.0 from Freeware files. I found that my computer was working extremely slow after installation. Since I never had a problem with any FF versions over the years, I didn't suspect that FF 43.0 was the problem. As I was about to do a system restore, I reinstalled FF 42.0 and what a difference. Once again, my home page loaded quickly and page rendering was up to snuff once again. I'm running on a Lenovo G50-70 laptop with the intel i5 processor. My laptop is less than a year old. Anyone else have the same problem with FF 43.0?

Running happily on my old dinosaur E6500. We'll likely see it go to 64-bit if they can figure out the 32-bit > 64-bit plugin stuff. We've only ever had a 32-bit Firefox and now that plugin and add-on devs have a shot at native 64-bit, they're playing catch up. The inclusion of SQLite 3.8.11 (https://www.sqlite.org/releaselog/3_8_11.html) will yield even better performance. Win win!

I thought I'd give Firefox a go after being ditching It several years ago & although the speed & performance has improved greatly there is one major issue I'm having, Plugins such as Java, Silverlight & VLC Media Player are not showing up In the plugins tab In the extensions manager. I've been a long time user of Cyberfox & I've never had this issue when using Firefox bases web browser & all the plugins I use are compatible with 64bit browsers.

Running perfectly on Windows 10 here.
I've tried IE, Chrome, Opera and Edge, for me they are all lacking in comparison to Firefox. It's fast and reliable.

Used to be browser of choice... but lately they have driven me to search for an alternative browser. This locks up, consumes ridiculous amounts of memory, and has become virtually useless on Windows 10. Rather than fix these issues, the devs has focused on feature building with no obvious benefit to the user.

Chrome too restrictive with "secure' features,
