    Its been a while since I used Tor browser, mainly because it was slow to use. I am impressed how fast it has become compared to last time I tried it.

    this change to v60 means we can't use some of the add-ons and no-script is changed to the new one (which I can't stand)?
    that's the reason I left firefox and started using firefox ESR.

    It's not recommended to install extensions in TOR browser anyway.

    Note that v52 ESR is dead, 60 ESR is the only supported version now.
    It looks like NoScipt is the new version but Firefox reports it is disabled because of compatibilityo_O

    I admit it did take a while to get used to, but it's really pretty simple to use if you give it a try. It is still a powerful security extension.

    The latest version of Tor browser 8.0 no longer supports Windows XP and Vista OS's.
    Tor browser 8.0 is based on Firefox 60 ESR. Version 7.5.6 based on Firefox 52.9 ESR
    was last version for support and now is considered outdated.
