We need an Add-on to revert them - especially the arrows! I hate the arrows!

I think that's what really did it for me, I was happy enough with firefox that it was my only browser but they just changed too much. I could have delt with the square tabs I don't really care that much about the aesthetics of the browser anyway but the arrows are horrid.
I tried slimjet which is based on chrome but didn't really care for it, then I tried pale moon and I like it. Its a little slower than firefox but then firefox 57 is slower on my rig than 56 so there you go. Pale moon is still fast enough and after checking out the forum a little I found I like Moonchild's style.

For what it is worth (and I'm late to this conversation) I find recent (release - not beta or anything like that) releases of Firefox, on both Linux and Windows, to be considerably more stable than before. Perhaps Firefox profiles with accumulated lank, or browser extensions, are to blame.

yes i agree quantum seems much better than previous versions. trouble is i am too invested in chrome now to go back...

one thing i really dont like is that NoScript for quantum seems to have gone down the "tablet app" route and is exceedingly annoying to use now. another reason to not go back is i used colorful tabs extension... it doesnt play well with themes... had to turn it off because i couldnt see cody's great theme....

I ain't too happy with Quantum, so I've switched to Waterfox for a while.

I've used Firefox for years.
I tried the 64bit version a couple of years ago.

NOT GOOD

Was my reply.

The 64 bit has way too many glitchies using older stuff.
My TDM has been 64b for years, still runs 32 great. So guess what I use. yup x86

Newer DOES NOT mean BETTER.

If others want to use 128b crash boot bandy. Mine will work.

Everytime Fox internet gives me the shits, unload and install older version... Ye tell it not to up date, it'll take you to the newest crap version made by teen on phones.

Whathef is an app?

Update Firefox last night (to v57.0) and it no longer supports my form filler add-on :cry:
You may want to look at this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... y-control/

I'm using it and it works pretty well. Only downside: You need to fill a few forms with your most used entries so that it learns.

After a few tweaks in Options and about:config, I'm fairly happy with Waterfox - so far.
