    No more Legacy extensions!
    I updated on 2 systems earlier today and was able to restore legacy extensions on both with the about:config extensions.legacy.enabled true setting. I'm finding these Nightly versions don't do a great job with video streaming, though.

    I've been using Palemoon for a couple of weeks now as sole browser. It's like a faster, far more customizable version of FF. It has its own extensions and some FF extensions work on it as well.

    When I use the current FF now, it feels slow and tired. Still, I'll keep FF around as a secondary.

    Think I may give that a try. I've been a FF user for a long time, but the standard version is too slow now and Nightly has too many bugs.

    Because if we didn't we'd never be able to use any software as all of them have something in their verbiage that would make us cringe. It's the choice you have but don't have - agree or don't use. Period. And switching to the next guy, doesn't change the standard EULA agreements. Again, agree or don't use.
    Agreed.

    All you need to know about EULAs is:
    • The user is always in the wrong
    • You can't sue the company

    As I tell many, if you don't want to be "spied on", disconnect electronically and live the life of the 17 hundreds :)
    During most of the 1990s, Google didn't exist and even "Evil MS" didn't spy on you 24/7 (only the government did that).

    In Firefox Options you can toggle the "You're about to close multiple Tabs" warning:

    But hidden is the ole "Save Tabs and Quit" dialog:

    Firefox Fights Back - Firefox 57-000116.png

    To re-enable this feature, simply toggle the about:config setting: browser.showQuitWarning to True
