Running FF 52.3.0esr on W7 and W8.1. None of the mentioned problems
(don't use the disaster called Facebook though). Promlems only with
one bank, but that's due to a bug in Ghostery.

I agree that Firefox is a crock, how does it make so much money?

Sorry, I meant Facebook.  My new copy of Firefox is okay so far.


IMO the average revenue per user (ARPU) revenue is pathetic. Multiply itbut that's a major annoyance
by the number of users, and it's a hefty sum.

The Register had a story recently about how FB's user numbers are fudged:

I note that my younger FB friends are posting less on FB, but don't have
any stats t5o confirm a trend.

IMO, FB would do better to offer a paid subscription service sans ads,
and with fine-grained control over posts/viewers. Sort Of like a private
mail service. I'd happily pay $10 a month for that.

I wouldn't.  AdblockPlus is free and works well.

FB is nowhere near as good as usenet. Perhaps I'd feel differently if I didn't have to jump through hoops to view FB videos with firefox (Chrome has no problems) and if I could see ALL the posts I've chosen to see on a timely (or "at all") basis.
