    Can't use Chrome here. Everything I need to do is different on Chrome. I could re-learn the actions and buttons in Chrome. But why bother?

    With Firefox 57 only updated compliant extensions will run. Current only two of my thirteen extensions are compliant. (I am using Firefox 55 beta which identifies legacy extensions.) I do like Firefox and its customizable interface. It is my primary browser.
    yesterday i decided to install the nightly, and just under half of my addons were incompatible. i found a about:config tweak and they;re all working now. i haven't seen any issues with any of them so far.

    Fisher Mann lastpass is working perfectly here. on another note at one time and for a very long ff had the lions share of the browser market. they killed themselves by shoving australia down peoples throats. pretty happy with chrome 64 bit beta as my default right now.

    That's what I was thinking. I don't remember Chrome ever getting installed on any of my systems without my doing. I watch all of these downloads and unsure to uncheck anything but what I truly need.
    Of course it doesn't install without user permission; that's not the point. The point is the install is "opt out" like most bundleware. It's not "opt in". Bundleware vendors know that many users don't pay attention and will allow the extra software to install. That doesn't mean people actually use it.

    Where you download the installer from is the key issue.

    I was using Chrome but it has too large of a footprint so I switched to Slimjet 64 bit.

    I just switched to Firefox 57 and it seems better than all of the past releases.

    Thanks appreciate knowing that. The Developer's Edition is very smooth so will use that for a bit before going back to Nightly.

    While I really do like FF, without anything to back up this claim except my useage, Opera IMO is the fastest browser that I have tried.

    Is there a link to download firefox 57? The only thing I saw was a nightly version 55. Seemed real slow.
