    Firefox 57 "Quantum" is out now, anybody using it with Windows other than me?

    For you Linux Mint users, it should ship with the alpha of 18.3 Sylvia (But not the beta). After 18.3 Mint will drop support for KDE and some other changes will be occurring along the way, see the October edition of the Linux Mint Blog from the Linux Mint default homepage. As Mint moves toward 19 it sounds like some challenges are coming but hopefully more fun and enjoyment...many of the new features and changes will be good.

    Meanwhile, I installed 57 to Windows 7 without changing old settings/bookmarks, something I think I will be changing and reinstalling it clean then adding the bookmarks again from IE.

    Being an early adopter I've already had it crash once today and I wonder if doing as clean installation will be better.

    I wish I could find something that resembles a check this website or block feature but I haven't as of yet and Yahoo gets Firefox drive-by exploits as well as Adobe Flash ones that come in IE or once did.

    I'm going to do as complete of an uninstall as I can and try it fresh. Windows keeps hanging for a while and I have 4GB.

    I've upgraded to Quantum and it lives up to all the hype about being faster.

    Sad to see some of the add-ins being unsupported but that will improve with time.
    Firefox has yet to let me down.

    I have not upgraded my Firefox yet as it is missing something Norton wants for protection. Firefox is ok but I find myself using IE far more

    I had left 56.0.2 there and installed 57, didn't seem to work out so I uninstalled both an installed 57 again and I'm finding freezing (not responding) with long waits and low CPU usge but95% plus memory usage. I have 4 MB RAM. That's a problem.
