Mozilla Firefox is a free and open source Web browser descended from the Mozilla Application Suite and managed by Mozilla Corporation. Firefox is the second most widely used browser.
To display web pages, Firefox uses the Gecko layout engine, which implements most current web standards in addition to several features that are intended to anticipate likely additions to the standards.

Version 53.0 - So slow and draggy and took forever to open webpages. Had to go back to ESR 45.7. Very disappointing.

Waterfox is doing very well and firefox is not. The latest is that my home page does not come up and I get a blank screen. This has been the case with at least the last three "upgrades" of FF. I doubt that FF will ever be right again. FF has s*** the bed.

Sorry Firefox, Ive used you faithfully since you rose from the ashes of Netscape's collapse way back when. I have endorsed you faithfully to my friends, and you have always been the most customizable browser EVER.
NO MORE. With your announcement of discontinuing support for XUL/XPCOM it seems that a lot of the add-ons I have come to rely on will no longer be supported. I just don't like the direction that this browser is moving and it is time to go our separate ways. I have tried Pale Moon, but eventually settled on WATERFOX. All of my add-ons, bookmarks etc. migrated perfectly to my new default browser.
Thank you Firefox, good luck with your new Chrome Cloning strategy., I hope it works out for you, but I'm afraid the one thing that made you great is gone, and you will soon meet the same fate as Netscape.

Monkey Punch, you have to remember that a fresh install will *always* perform better than an existing one with addons and accumulated garbage of use over time. Overall, Mozilla is doing pretty average to what the should be.

When they first started releasing 64-bit builds of Firefox, I jumped on the band wagon. It ran so much better on my 64-bit OS. I remember testing it against the 32-bit version with Peacekeeper and Speed Battle. Way back, I was amazed when my old clunker scored 600-800 on Speed Battle. Today, Firefox 51 scores in the low-to-mid 1300s. So, for all the haters and complainers that say performance sucks on Firefox, it's nonsense. The benchmark numbers speak for themselves. You guys must have such a munged up system that you're your own worst enemies.
