hoo-ah! FF 57 just dropped :-)

much-much faster, much-much needed.

broke most of my plugins, but i'm OK with that. after a couple tweaks to the UI -- moved tabs to bottom of menu and changed color of inactive tabs, i'm good to go.

Glad to hear that, I've been using Chrome some FF has been lagging so badly.

I upgraded to it yesterday, too

Most of my add-ons still work and I can live with the minor UI changes. The key for me is that it still allows a top menu, which is the one thing that drives me nuts about Chrome.

Going to be interesting to see how well their memory management works. Before, you had to close it to release the memory.

So far it passes two tests that made me use Chrome and Vivaldi, YouTube and a certain music site, Freegal.

It would be great to never need to use Chrome.

Firefox and Duck Duck Go, less intrusive.

Nice to see bookmark tags getting some new prominence. I hardly classify bookmarks anymore, just use tags and hit enter.

My FTP manager add-in was one that stopped, and the author is pushing Waterfox for the immediate fix.

Any comments on Waterfox?

Why not use the native one?

The add in app saves a lot of work as far as updating and publishing to my site. The native ftp is just folder level viewing or [right click 'save as'] DownLoading. Does FF native FTP actually have upload provision, the earlier version sure did not when I explored it.

Yes !

Thanks for the update news. I was a long time FF user, dropped it when it got bogged down.

Will see how well it sync's with mobile versions

FTP you might like this

The waterfox recommendation leads me to believe I'd been using the same add-in as you for so long I'd forgotten it wasn't native.

Just for grins, I opened a vanilla Windows File Explorer (WinKey+E) and entered ftp://TheFTPAddress in the address bar.

Credentials prompt, voila, drag and drop FTP - thanks Microsoft.

YMMV, but it worked this time. The proof? Happy Halloween!!! (small photo)

I have been using Windows Explorer for years and exclusively so as it does the job well enough to not bother using other pc specific ftp software.
