    @tomseys, look what happens to Content process limit after I disable Multiprocess (it becomes greyed out).

    I installed Firefox on my desktop. Still as unstable as it used to be. Keep in mind that I watch a lot of youtube and Netflix so I'm guessing that they're still struggling with videos, issues which I haven't seen in any other browsers. Might try Nightly to see if it's any better.

    This is a thing they struggle a lot with, in fact, the last time I reported a bug, they just told me to upgrade my VGA drivers, because they were blacklisting the older ones, instead of investigating why Chrome didn't exhibit the same problem...

    I hope the servo rewrite for the browser helps on spotting issues instead of just blacklisting drivers... it's insane.

    Nightly brought back the Play Button on YouTube background tabs!

    As is any pre final build including Windows 10. I am happy with Fx57 if you do not use legacy extensions 57 and 58 will work just fine.

    A couple useful tweaks for Firefox, that I had forgot about; you may find them useful as well.
    (my apologies if they've been posted elsewhere)

    UserChrome.css tweak:

    Make that annoying 'Overlink Status Message' in the bottom left corner transparent:

    Code:
    /* Make Link Box Transparent */ 
    .statuspanel-label[value=""] {display: none !important;}
    .statuspanel-label:not([value=""]){opacity: 1 !important;
    -moz-transition-property: opacity: 0 !important;
    -moz-transition-delay: 2000ms !important;}
    #main-window[sizemode="normal"]:not([inFullscreen])
    .statuspanel-inner{margin: 0 1px !important;}
    .statuspanel-label {color: Windows Text !important;
    border-color: Transparent !important;
    background: Transparent !important;}

    Or, disable it altogether:

    Code:
    @namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
    
    statuspanel[type="overLink"] .statuspanel-label {display:none!important;}


    New about:config preference:

    Open bookmarks in a New Tab:

    Toggle browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs to true

    You can plant each one of these on the Address Bar.
    (Musta missed that!)

    When an extension has taken control of your New Tab Page, you can now Disable it in Preferences:

    (It would be nice if the same applied to 'hijacked' Homepages!!!)

    One particular annoyance: Firefox will not remember site preferences as Chrome does!

    browser.tabs.tabMinWidth is back in Nightly 58.
    The default is 50 but, set to about 70 gives you approximately 24 reasonably identifiable Tabs, full screen at 1920X1080.
