I went a bit overboard with my first review. After using 59 for a while I like most everything about it. As time went on, I found FF to be rather slow in page rendering, slow to load my home page, some sights not loading photos and sometimes freezing. Overall, Slimjet is a better performer, but it's so damn ugly that I don't like using it. FF is good looking, but doesn't live up to all the hoopla and propaganda that preceded it.

59 is well designed and responds well. It's easy on the eyes and also quite fast. All in all, I'm quite pleased. It seems that FF has won me back. Well done.

As an SEO professional, browser speed is crucial. I am also testing and tweaking constantly. Interesting to see all future updates.

Fortunately I was able to find alternatives to most of my old addons, and once I did that and got them all configured things are working pretty good. FF feels like a real, professional browsing product now, although its still very slow on Android compared to the competition. The real problem is the neglect FF gave to its user base, they should have improved the speed literally 5 years ago, but they were too busy integrating pocket and 15 other things no one asked for. Mozilla is probably dead within a year, but I can finally say that FF is a real broswer again.

The slide continues. With 57 most net users will move on to prob chrome or like me, other mozilla/gecko clones. RIP FF

BIG improvement since version 50, a version that started making Firefox sluggish for me, this vastly new version 57 resolves the problem I was having. No stuttering live streaming, no browser sluggishness. It's fast and snappy.

However, this version breaks a LOT of addons. Until either Video DownloadHelper or KeepVid Pro comes out with a compatible update, I can only give Firefox 4 stars for now, and thus can't use as main browser. I need an ad blocker (AdGuard works just fine) and a video downloader, those are the only two addons I truly really need.

I'll stick with 56.02, 57 looks and feels terrible ... when will they learn.

Firefox had an edge at one point due to a robust addon community, but they just killed that completely. So the browser is 100% dead, time to move on from this corpse.

version 56 was o.k. but this update to 56.0.1 killed my fav theme. I also fooled around with version 57. Wow, that killed all my add on's. Including an important one called classic theme restorer. Like allot users, I'll move on from Firefox now.

Pros: non

Cons: loss of add-ons is not good.

Bottom Line: Looks like FF is going backwards not forward.

Aegis69

Aegis69 reviewed v56.0.1 on Oct 6, 2017

Pros: fast

Cons: all extensions will be gone soon

Bottom Line: Sorry firefox I cant follow you this time, the change is too big and losing all my addons is just not acceptable for the speed increase, which honestly you should have been working on speed 4 years ago, now its too late. If they are just going to turn themselves into Chrome, then why wouldnt I just use chrome? The whole reason I was using Firefox is because its NOT CHROME!

Waterfox is working fine for now, I'll stick with it as long as I can.

Firefox is the best browser imho but it's not as fast as Chrome I'm sorry to say.

Mozilla has turned Firefox into a painful joke.

* Same filenames used for 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
* Install process that tries to install 90's-era background monitor. Puts a shortcut on your taskbar without asking.
* Bloat, bloat and more bloat. Nodody gives a damn about Pocket, "reader mode" or the other garbage. Thankfully it can all be disabled with a little bit of tweaking.
* Change for change's sake has driven off many of the best addon developers.
* Default UI is a copy-n-paste of Chrome. Thank god for Classic Theme Restorer..but how long until idiots at Mozilla decide to break it?
* Breaks about a third of e-commerce sites I've visited over the past six months.
* SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. So, so, slow.

So if FF looks just like Chrome, has driven most of the best devs to Chrome and its slower and breaks more sites than Chrome...why not just use Chrome? After well over a decade of championing FF I have switched to Chromium as my primary browser out of necessity. I don't use anything that requires a Google login so Chromium is the closest thing I can find to what FF used to be.
