    A couple more days until official release.
    That is The Release that you will get on Tuesday and it is from Mozilla, if you want to wait and use a less secure browser that is your choice. The link is official BTW.

    Firefox releases the new version ahead of the official release date so the brave can test it in case they need to pull it. They have pulled a few releases in the past. I usually wait for the official release which is this Tuesday. To each his own.

    Absolutely to each his own.
    I was just wondering the reasoning. Then again, I don't really need to know. Sorry I asked.

    I'm not sure it's an interaction with Windows insider or it's just FF but from 57.0 I'm having occasional problems with it. Errors keep on coming but not as often as before. FF gets stuck at tab changes and refresh. Several times it wanted to start in safe mode and few times I had to refresh and start all over again. Right now it's arking all messages in Gmail online page when I want to choose only one message. Such behavior stops when I close and restart FF.
    It doesn't feel nearly as stable as in v56.
    Here is what just happened and happens more often than one would like:

    The cache is probably bloated,
    you can reload the page, Ctrl+R or, hard reload, (empty the page's cache), Ctrl+Shift+R,

    (some browsers have an empty all cache and reload feature)

    If you disable Telemetry, you shouldn't see that notice,

    about:tabcrashed is merely a notice of Mozilla wanting you to submit a report.

    I raised cache to 500MB. Except when it crashes I can't find any way to turn off auto reporting ad when I do that it just reappears again at next error.

    Why wait in this age of a New Security problem every day? The link provided was from Mozilla and it is official. The one from MajorGeeks comes from Mozilla as well. I never update Firefox, I remove it and then install the new release. The profile stay intact and you do not fill up your profile with useless update files.

    EME, (Encrypted Media Extensions) allow you to view premium content through DRM (Digital Rights Management) such as Netflix...
    Just install the regular version, If you don't utilize the feature, you can turn it off in Preferences.
