    My Firefox has always had it to false.
    But it's LEAKING like ...

    What's more.

    I've just updated my Firefox to 79 and it started crashing.
    I don't have nice feelings about Firefox anymore.
    It's all about SYNC this/EXPOSE that, it's SO EASY, etc...

    Mozilla have reset several of my extension since the update to FF79.

    NoScript being one, which as anyone who uses it knows, it takes a while to configure it for all the sites you visit.

    #465

    Not at all happy!

    "Although Mozilla called out some under-the-hood improvements – WebRender support for more Intel and AMD graphics processors, for one – and several changes of interest to developers, there was nothing to pitch to users."

    WebRender support is not trivial. The author asks "where's the new shiny stuff?", but he doesn't say what shiny stuff he expects. Firefox is already mature and largely "feature complete".

    Victek, they never do, yet I thought the article was important to post, due to the below statement (although it's only one metric):

    I understand. It's a bummer that Firefox continues to lose market share.

    I know because to me it seems that Mozilla has finally got their act together, maybe a little too late. :doubt:

    It is. Unfortunately it's hard to compete when Edge is already installed on any Windows PC and Google has been effective at slipping Chrome onto people's systems by bundling it with other installers. They both also aggressively market their browsers on the platforms they control. Use Bing? Hey, why aren't you using Edge? Use Google? You should already be using Chrome! Firefox? What's that? They don't have a search platform owned by a trillion dollar company. :(

    Google hasn't done in since forever, this is not why Firefox is losing market shares of today.

    I just downloaded the free version of SUPERAntiSpyware and Chrome would have been both installed and set as default browser if I hadn't unchecked both options.

    Everyone already has it now, but as Krusty just pointed out if you don't already have it... And no, it isn't why Firefox is losing market share. But it's at least part of why they're not gaining any.

    SUPERAntiSpyware hasn't been updated in over a year, the latest installer for that has a timestamped of Wednesday, June 26th 2019, so no, grabbing old installers and saying "they still do that, see! see!" doesn't count.

    Where did you get such installers? Both free and pro are digitally signed on 04 August 2020 and previous versions on 03 August 2020. I personally have both.

    I don't know what else to say. I told you my experience when I downloaded from the SAS site.

    Anyway, that is OT for this thread now so I won't continue.
