    You use the beta version @JRViejo ? Been running the nightly builds and have enjoyed them but looking for a bit more stability. I enjoy the new Proton look even though it is getting a ton of hate lol.

    Trooper, I mainly use it to check Web designs so nothing is broken when that particular Beta version becomes stable. Nightlies are too unstable for me. If you wait halfway through a new Beta version cycle (#5 or #6) to update, you might find the stability you're looking for. That's usually when I wait to check designs and run through my own site bookmarks to see how it's working. The stable version is my go-to browser, with only 2 add-ons: NoScript and AdBlock+.

    Good stuff thanks. I ditched the Nightly build and have installed the beta. So far so good. I run uBO, Bitwarden, Reddit Enhancement Suite, and Clear URL's.
