I know, but did so anyway just to see if it made a difference -- It
didn't -- since there were no plug-ins or extensions, etc. installed.
ESR was installed for only one purpose: To download Google Chrome.
However, I did note that Firefox was not as slow as it was when I first
installed it in Wheezy years ago. In fact, it was quite usable.  So,
it's been "fixed."  However, I'm still sticking with Chrome as my
primary.
