I am not happy with FF way to add new bookmarks, but it is not slow or
have strange problems - besides being badly planned.

So now they change the version numbers so much fast! Weeks ago it was
60, for a BIG change in many things... now they are preparing 64 and
65... those are, for sure, not big change releases - which, in software
world, do not justify an increase in the first part of the version number.

I am perfectly happy with my Firefox ESR 52.2.0. Everything I want works
