    I've been using the 64-bit version since FF42, although the download link wasn't readily available.

    Well, I knew I'd live long enough to see an official x64 release lol. I did run Waterfox a few years ago.

    In this 43.0 release, Mozilla's Safe Browsing adds three objects (mozstd-track-digest256.cache .pset & .sbstore) to the local store for Disconect.me strict protection versus the basic protection. The option for selecting or disabling either is in Options > Privacy.

    Any Windows XP Professional SP3, 32 bit users that care to share their experience with Firefox 43? I am currently using Firefox 38.0.5 and having no problems but I am thinking of updating to the new version. Any recommendations or suggestions? As always I appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance.

    Hi John, I upgraded Firefox in my XP last night, all is well with version 43. I haven't had any kind of issue using Firefox in my XP (or W7) in a very long time. You should upgrade. I streamed the Hawks basketball game and followed up on the Pacers, watched videos in YouTube, things couldnt be any better.

    I use very few addonsl. In my XP, the only plugin that I install is Flash and only use 4 extensions. No Av or security products other than Sandboxie. Keeping things lite helps as I avoid conflicts. You should be fine as long as you are not loaded with security programs or addons that might conflict with each other.

    Thanks for the heads up. By the way I'm guessing you meant 43.0.1 and not 42.0.1.....?

    I thought Mozilla were dropping the ad tiles in Firefox? Just updated with the internal updater to 43.0.1 & got the new tab page with the all the ad tiles despite the fact I have the New Tab Override extension installed have that set to about:blank

    Allow me to ask this, does using NoScript, negate the need for Adblock Plus, and etc.s? Thank you!

    Not at all. With NoScript you block scripts, with Adblock plus, you block ads. Let me give you an example, in YouTube, even if you only allow the necessary scripts to view videos, you still get ads and annotations in the videos. To me, this is very annoying. But by using Adblock plus, I completely clean up videos of this ads and annotations. It works the same on other sites. I use both addons and they work great together, IMO.

    Sooooo, I re-enable AbP and I thank you!
    On another note, despite upgrading from x64 W7 SP1 to W10 five months ago, since v1511 W10, I get bombarded with this giant blue popup box (it is even part of the name of the file if you download it) prompting me to upgrade. This happens starting a Firefox (always the latest v) session, loading homepage MSN and after a CC disk cleanup, so I know it is something I'm removing from the Firefox choices. I've tried numerous solutions to no avail, including de-selecting many cleaning options and blocking methods. It never happens using Edge. I believe I've found the bugger with NoScript and am blocking it. Time will tell!

    Hi Ratchet, by using NoScript and Adblock plus, I rarely get any pop ups. I get maybe one or two pop ups a year, if any. And the only time that happens is when downloading something from some site (like Rapidshare but not Rapidshare) and you have to allow an script that allows the download but also makes the pop up possible.

    thats reason for uBlock - it can block scripts by content. (example)
    Code:
    wetteronline.de##script:contains(ligatus)
    but it will be tricky to block ads when a script contain needed site scripts and ads.
    the ublock picker is not enough for that, some need to examine the object or -> Inspector ctrl+shift+c

    I found that adding this custom rule to ABP or UBO stops the annoying popup:
    Code:
    www.msn.com##.popup.win10promo.promobanner
