Pity you can't do anything useful with the latest version.

You mean like browse the web?

Browse without it freezing and without it complaining that a script
has stopped working.

My bitch is the number of videos that no longer play, requiring me to
use Chrome -- which I find distasteful.

I do not know anything that will work only in that bad browser, except the Flash plugin based things (which are certainly not the case because these can be played in FF if the plugin is installed). Can you give me an example of a video that does not work in FF?


On Windows10 I had the Tracking Protection in Firefox 58.0.2 set to "Always". That prevented some CNET videos from playing.

Changing the setting to "Only in private windows" fixed that problem.

As a test, I set "media.autoplay.enabled" to "false". That prevented all CNET videos from playing. So if you have that setting, I would suggest resetting it to "true".
