Not bad. Might shift me back to FF over Chrome. It's zippy for sure.

Don’t like the new tab look. Just updated 20 minutes ago.

After switching over to chrome, I've never dabbled in FF. I probably should just to familiarize myself with it though. Does it have the same amount of customization and punch that chrome has?

I've been using it most of the day today and I have to say I really like it.  I think it is way snappier than chrome ever was for me.  As far as customization I don't really do any of that so I can't comment about it.  My only complaint is the tabs being in that "Material" style that google has been sprinkling all over android the last couple of years.  Never been a huge fan of the style (or lack thereof IMO).  Just flat and straight.  There might be some themes or something that might help but I try to keep my browsers as plain jane as possible as I'd rather them spit pages faster rather than make tabs and UI pretty.  ;)

I went to chrome from FF, but uploaded FF again a while back because it streams better than chrome. Hockey is fast moving and chrome was way choppier. I am going to try this new FF tomorrow night when the wings play and see if it’s better yet. I’ll report back.

personally I never really got along well with chrome so I never really use it much, but I don't dislike it.  its a fecking browser WGAF, right?  at any given time on my two laptops I have FF, Chrome and Safari or FF, Chrome, IE open at all times.

 

been using quantum now for a day, it works just fine, somewhere between old FF and chrome in terms of feel, I haven't found anything I dislike that I couldn't change, performance seems fine, fewer 'slow downs' than old FF so far.  worthwhile upgrade at this point if you like FF over chrome.

Is there a mobile version that anyone has tried yet? I was using FF for years until the board problems a few months ago. Chrome helped, but neither has been perfect. One logs me out randomly, the other doesn't handle mobile skin very well, crap like that.

I like the screenshot function in Firefox Quantum. Can easily capture the whole webpage, including off-screen portions. I sometimes save webpages as PDF, but that doesn't always come out right.

One thing I love about Firefox, each tab has an audio symbol and you can kill the audio playing on the tab. Great fro when you get on a page and there is a collection of video windows and one of them is playing with audio.

I switched to FF from IE a couple years ago(I know, what a disaster) and liked it over Chrome. There is something about the FF update that doesn't work with my hotspot. It won't load pages and somehow messes with the connection showing that I only have 1 bar where Chrome doesn't. Moving on to chrome.

That is the strangest problem. It's only a browser and should have nothing to do with your internet connection.

I know. But when I started using the new browser I was getting 60+% failure to connect with my connection showing up as 1 bar. Switched over to chrome after several failures to connect tonight and no problem, 4-5 bars. Been messing with FF for the last 3 nights and cussing furiously.
