    I just got this a few minutes ago. So far, it's quite spiffy! (Also, posted a note in the Submit News section.)

    If you haven't tried Firefox in awhile, you might want to at least give it a whirl.

    One question I have, is it 64bit? If it is I might make the move from Waterfox to it.

    So now I'm wondering, should I move to Firefox Quantum or not? I mean, I think I am going to stick with Waterfox for a while as I've been hearing people having problems with Firefox Quantum.

    It is definitely more speedy than previous versions. My only problem is the extension I used to have to block pop ups (Strict Pop Up Blocker) is now not working/compatible. That pisses me off a lot.

    Have you submitted Feedback? Not sure if it would help, but, could be worth it to bring it to their attention.

    Here's a list of what can be added....

    Basically it is crashing for some users on Windows 10.

    I don't want to register to yet another site.
    I installed another one, for now, but I don't like that when installed it says it is gaining access to all the data to all the sites I visit. I can see how and why it could technically need it, but I don't like it. I will use it for a few days and see if my favorite returns, if not, I will stop using Firefox even more.

    Have they tried uninstalling Windows 10? That fixes most problems.

    You really don't like Windows 10 eh? I mean, I've been running Windows 10 for the last couple years and I've only ever gotten one BSOD which was linked to a bad update.

    I
    I am not going to get into this again. Its quality as an OS is irrelevant for my hatred towards it. The spying is.

    As I wrote in the news-thread about it.

    They messed things up a bit for me. I had gotten used to the "favorite links" on the new tab. Now, with this version a few of them are gone since they cut it down to two rows. Hence, some of my fav links are gone from that page. THough, it's some of those I use the least, which is why I can't remember which they were. I still want them quickly accessible though, that's why I had them there.

    I'm a bit annoyed by this.

    That's just too bad, at least you'll remember with time whenever you need them.

    I don't have that many links saved and all of mine are still in the List. But, I wonder if the ones you had are in the Library list now?

    I just did remember two of them and one of them aren't in any list. So, now there's only one I can't remember.

    It's also annoying that I can't seem to rearrange them. There's a maximum of 12 it seems, 6 on each row. I had 15 before.

    This really sucks.

    The new version is better, I have now 16 "most visited" on a new tab. When it comes to how fast and compatible it is I can't say, haven't noticed that much of a difference yet.

    My practice, for several years now, is to create a new Tab and I call it: LIST. In that List I have 18 links to sites I've wished to save for quick access.

    AND, FTR, Hardwareheaven is at the very tippy top of the LIST. :)
