    Yup and how bad they're ruining it has been discussed. And alternatives have been discussed. And Waterfox is a GREAT alternative.

    That is your opinion. Waterfox is a close of Firefox when Firefox dumps all of their old extensions who will Waterfox copy then?

    From what I read they are creating their own extensions store.

    Many may not be aware of this one, but...,

    The "All Tabs" List, which is hidden by default, can be dragged over to the left side, via 'Customization', to be functional, including links to 'Container Tabs' and Management:

    Nightly 57 has removed the "Share" Feature because of the use of a non official Social API:

    however, there is now a backported version you can install:

    What I have yet to hear is what Mr Alex will do to continue to update a post 57 Waterfox, after there is no longer XUL to borrow code from. Lots of possibilities discussed, but noting set in stone yet.

    I like Firefox 57 Nightly a lot more than I thought I was going to. And now that my only needed extension is available as a WebExtension, we're set.

    You are indeed all set if you don't need any add-ons that won't be updated. I hope Mr Alex works it out after 57. :)

    The biggest problem I've found with Nightly so far is playback of videos such as those at YouTube. Occasional visual "stuttering" is obvious.

    I'm watching american football via Game Pass (html not flash) and no stuttering, nor on youtube so far.

    Nightly titlebar in color now if you tick color on titlebar in settings
