Old Firefox vs. New Firefox

Kuphostiwe

This is more of a Migration Problem than anything else .... I hate Change ... I have been a user of Firefox since the early days (Yup, I am old) ... Currently I am using Firefox 47.0.2 with Windows 7 .... I like it ... BUT ... a couple of important websites don't work real well on that combo anymore (Yahoo Mail and Hotmail) but they do work perfectly on Internet Explorer..... Thus I suspect the issue is because my FF version is too old .... Updating, as I understand it, will likely mean loosing my favorite Add-ons and getting used to a new layout/system .... Question: Need Some Advice .... should I continue with Firefox and suffer thru an Update .... or look for a new browser (Not Chrome nor Microsoft IE or related) and make a serious change .... What do you think?

Why did you stop updating Firefox with version 47 instead of continuing with 48? Was it because you need to run an unsigned extension?

For signed extensions, what are your favorite add-ons that you don't want to lose? What functions are critical?

You need to consider which browser has the best replacements or which browser still runs old add-ons. Or leave them in your past and move on to a new day.
