    Does anyone have a solution to the tiresome problem with Rapport?(see image below) I get this all the time even when Rapport is supposed to work with v.57. I have looked online extensively but cannot see any answers. If I use use IE I can add websites to the Rapport list and they then show up on Firefox but what a pain in the proverbial. All suggestoins gratefully received.

    24 HD YouTube videos running full tilt on Chrome, (not all would even complete buffering!):

    The same 24 videos running in the same manner in Firefox Nightly with WebRendering enabled, (all buffered and playing!)

    In Nightly 59.0a1 (2018-01-11), you can now block sites from pestering you for access to your Mic, Camera, Location, etc.

    For an average user like me. I have been using Firefox for a long long time and by that I mean years. Chagnged to Firefox after Internet Explorer got overhelmed by the sites with to many adds popuo and incompatibility to some.

    Never had problems with the browser except on websites that they where made for ie or compatibility for chrome (ex hangouts can't find a standalone app only a Google Chrome extension).

    Google Chrome will always be a resource eater that has a lot of tasks open in task manager that can't be faster then Firefox for an average users points of view.

    The biggest problem that Firefox ha's is the phone version which is awful, badly optimizer for some websites, runs slow, and so on.
    So what am I gonna use!? Chrome as every android phone.

    Conclusion is that the pc version for casual users is OK but the phone version is horrible and with a big inconvenience since all your favorite websites.passwords. etc are saved on Firefox pc and when you use your phone you have to remember, and vice versa.

    Thank you for reading and paying attention to my replay.

    I use a third party password manager in firefox, works fine in 57. it has a cloud storage for the links/logins/passwords, and an android app to go with it so i do NOT have to remember the passwords on my samsung phone or my PC, i just get logged in. If i add a new site, it adds my new details & is then available on all my PC's and Android devices. I do need to occasionally type in my PWM's password, but it's the only one i need remember (it also gens more secure ones if i want one, like it did for this one (not used anywhere) [email protected]%3N1pr*1KMdeEQVuIs86 ).
