    Although the title says Firefix fights back, I do not believe FFQ will make any serious inroads into user's browser usage.

    Reality is most users are comfortable with one they use and know, and very few bother to change.

    In part, this is why Edge has not been used as much as it might have been.

    The only market share FFQ will possibly make inroads into, is to recapture previous users who stopped using it for various reasons.

    For me FF's main attraction was the plug-ins. Many of my most used (and most useful) have now been blown out of the water by FF 57.

    For the past few years most of the development decisions made have succeeded in doing nothing but alienate people and drive away many long-time users - it makes you wonder what the heck they're thinking. But they're reaping that which they sew, it's a shame really.

    I dislike Chrome, but it looks like I'll be heading that direction soon.

    It looks as though you, and at least one other person on this thread, who posted not long after you did, are confusing Plugins and Extensions, two things that are quite different. If you go into the Firefox Add-ons manager, you will see an entry for extensions, and another for plugins.

    Most browsers, Fx included, have reduced the number of plugins, or even removed all of them, due to their being, as I understand this, very subject to providing pathways for the introduction of viruses, etc. You can find about this subject by an on-line search; I won't go into this, as it is far removed from my areas of expertise.

    It is certainly correct that most Fx extensions have been removed; again, there were valid reasons for this, mainly (again, to my limited knowledge) because Fx was based on programming that was very old and could not be used to bring Fx up to today's browser standards. There are already a limited number of extensions which have been ported to the new WebExtensions standard, a number are in the process (such as my news reader, Brief,) and there weill be new extensions to replace at least some of the features lost by the changed basis on which Fx is now based.

    Change is inevitable, often painful; sic transit gloria mundi.

    Yes, my mistake: "Extensions" rather than "Plugins"...

    Change for change's sake, however, is just plain silly. Ever since Mozilla's aim switched to "beating Chrome" by "Imitating Chrome" they have lost many, many long term users.

    Users are the life-blood of any project and to alienate so many is nothing more then madness.

    Agreed.

    Despite me warning him only a couple of days ago that "the end was near", my friend forgot to block FF updates on his Arch Linux PC.
    He wasn't happy when FF56 got updated to FF57.
    He was even more disgusted when he discovered that NoScript didn't work.

    Luckily Linux Distros tend to cache software packages, so it was a simple job (for him) to restore FF56.
