Anyone know of a good alternative/fork to Firefox since they have just made themselves a 3rd rate browser?

See https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2016/11/23/add-ons-in-2017/ and https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2017/01/24/preventing-add-ons-third-party-software-from-loading-dlls-i… (read more)

Just 12 weeks before it was set to a happen did they notify developers right after most of them took a retarded amount of time rewriting all their code for multi-process support.

So basically what I am looking for is a fork of Firefox that doesn't try to copy chrome.

Spesso faccio teleworking e lavoro da casa utilizzando tramite Firefox un sistema chiamato KOHA. Mentre lavoro spesso mi succede di essere buttata fuori e di ricevere questa risposta: 'la connessione al server è stata annullata durante il caricamento della pagina'. Ho provato a fare varie operazioni ma non ci sono riuscita. Poi magari dopo un pò di ore funziona nuovamente. Allego un esempio, da aprire con Wordpad

Hello. What about this old issue? www.id.ee/?id=30608&read=37737

I always used id + firefox without any problems. But in the last time i need to use IE or Chrome for id signing. It is very uncomfortable and I'm already thinking about the possibility to move to a different browser entirely.

Also, I set up a large number of computers in Estonia. Because of this problem, I simply can not recommend firefox for work with id cards.

Your homepage has an annoying add box below the search bar, (which itself behaves badly like the chrome one and forces ones typing to the top of the page search - why?) ... If I donate to Mozilla Firefox - apart from the wondrous gift of Firefox itself, will you remove the annoying add box from the homepage? At the moment its presence is an extreme disincentive for me to contribute at all.

For the last month or two I have started getting pop-ups from reputable sites which I have used for years. These are not the typical ad pop-ups either, like asking for donations to a site or the like, or even ads for products based on browsing history. These are specifically pop-ups for adult themed or adult suggestive games. Today's most recent one was for a game called Stormfall: age of war, which does not seem to be an actual adult game, but it asks if I'm over 18. It popped up while I was browsing audible.com of all things. I have Adguard installed, and sometimes it seems to catch the popups and either block them or give me a warning screen, but not always. One site I use regularly is Symbolab.com, which is a mathematics help site and calculator that I have been using for 2+ years without issue. It was the first site to start giving me adult game pop-ups, one of which was a game called P***y Saga, the others weren't quite as jarring, so I don't remember what they were. The odd thing is that it is specifically games, not porn sites, not dating sites, just game sites that specifically ask if I am 18. They seem like they may even be legit games, such as Stormfall, not malware or the like. Bitdefender doesn't detect any malware or viruses present, nor does Windows MSRT. I'm at a loss as to what changed to cause this to start. I'm the only one on this computer and my browsing habits have not changed recently. Firefox is up to date, and I only install updates directly from Mozilla, never from pop-ups. Any Ideas as to the possible cause would be greatly appreciated.

I used this function a lot on Firefox for Android to send tabs from handheld devices to desktop, or from one handheld device to another. Strangely I cannot find the same function in Firefox for Desktop(v50.1.0).

I am aware there are add-ons could do this but I am wondering if this is achievable without an add-on.

Thanks,

Jeremy

I keep getting a "blocked" message from Avast, my internet security provider. Where is this "updaterex.com" malware virus coming from. The other day my girlfriend told me that I was trying to "video call" her on Facebook, I don't know how to do this, I did not do this. It also said that she was trying to "video call" me, she doesn't know how to do this either.

Do I have a virus in my computer? I ran a scan and all the files are ok, no viruses. Why does this bad file keep trying to attack my computer, its scary. It has happened about 12 times already. I want it gone !!
