While I am browsing on a site I find that Yahoo will suddenly pop up without having been requested to do so. It also happens when I go from one page of a given site to another. This happens on most sites and I am about to "ditch" Firefox, since it does not occur when I use Safari.

Realize that Firefox has a lot of unpaid developers. But this Firefox 57 really has quite a few security flaws and easy-pathologies.

New pathologies discovered : None of the available ad blocker ADD-ONs work. All of them, even when enabled, allow more-or-less all ads.

This level of non QA could only be by design. It is hoped that Google/Instart/etc paid you a LOT of money for this Swiss Cheese of a browser.

It's FREE! But, thanks but no thanks.

Suddenly this afternoon I get horrible video ads on my Firefox screen. I reloaded AdBlock and they're still there. Also and equally out of the blue, Ask has become my default search engine and remains so, no matter how many times I have selected Google and deleted Ask. I have been a loyal Firefox user for many years but I do not want ads and I do not want Ask!

I used to use Pocket back when it was a simple addon. I used it without ever registering, with syncing disabled.

I only do two things with it: (1) add something to my reading list, and (2) view my reading list and select something to read. I don't want syncing, I do want privacy.

Now that it comes with firefox, seems like there's no option to use it without registering. (Sounds like a regression to me). Or is there?
