Firefox Quantum 57

#1 Post by Shawn »

Opinions?
Thoughts?
Compared to Waterfox 64bit?

Kaspersky auto updated my CF 52 to version 57. It actually seems MUCH faster. As long as I can get over losing my addons.

FF is trash post 56, that's why I blocked updates.

Might give Waterfox a try if I get bored one night.

Why do you feel that it is trash past 56?

Mozilla itself is trash because diversity bullshit, no Classic Theme Restorer or NoScript, Stylish breaks styles on 57, and on and on.

Ergo, i'll be sticking with FF56 for now, if not forever.

I miss Classic Theme Restorer but Noscript is back (although still a work in progress) and a few other useful things I use for work. So far Quantum works for me.

I will learn to accept the loss of some add ons. Especially if it performs better.
Old Firefox was a real cpu and memory hog.

I just left all my "legacy" add-ons installed/disabled and a few started popping up on their own as they auto-update once they are converted to WebExtensions from the developers.

That's what I planned on doing also.

I got mixed reviews with it so far. I updated to it 3 weeks ago. It doesn't seem any faster to me. But I ran my original Firefox tweaked. I haven't even tried to see if about:config works with this version yet. It may be because some times I can have 20 to 50 tabs open at once researching one of my projects.
CF-28 MK2,Mk3 / CF-29 Mk3 / CF-30 MK2 / CF-25 Mk1 ATI / CF-19 MK3/Mk3/Mk5 / CF-U1 Mk1,Mk2 / CF-M34 Mk7/Mk3 / CF-17 Mk1 / CF-07
Voodoo Envy M355 / M360 / M515 / M780 / U703 / Voodoo Hexx / Voodoo Idol / Voodoo Rage F1 / Voodoo Rage F1 / Voodoo Rage F1 "signed case" / Voodoo Omen

Can confirm, on my G1 with 4GB RAM and a tuned Win8.1 install FF can use 50% RAM or more, with only one tab open.

I have two tabs open on 31 and it uses 1.25 GB of my 16GB.
