    The one thing that I have noticed with the new FF 50 is that it is much faster loading when you log on....it's about time....other than that the changes are so subtle you won't notice them....

    I just updated my firefox now every 'freezes' every now and then. Maybe I should have stayed with the older version. Sad

    I haven't had that issue with this current version of FF 52 but give it time....FF is pushing me more and more to Chrome.

    I'm still running Windows 7 so it could be the problem...

    I believe windows 7 has extended security patches until 2020. It's just that 7 users won't receive any new stuff or App updates.

    The Edge browser is faster than Chrome but I don't use it very much.
    Don't like I will stick with Chrome.

    I see nothing good about it. For one thing the choices you have for addons are pathetic and you're very limited as to search engines since it uses Bing as it's default. Then there's the fact I just don't trust Microsoft and tracking people and their searches.

    I cannot think of anything that I like about it. Chrome is what I've been using since two W-10 updates in a row messed things up so badly for me. I never have been able to get back my paid for version of Office Home & Business 2010. No matter how I try, it just sends me to an MS ad to buy their latest Office version. I'm not going to pay another penny for that offer. The 2010 paid for version had all I needed feature-wise.

    I also dislike the "ask me anything" feature which heckled me repeatedly.

    I saw an article, but didn't read it, about people suing M$ for W10 upgrades that screwed everything up. It wasn't a class action, but it could easily become one.

    The way Firefox is changing all things will change soon enough. Soon Firefox is going to be a clone of Chrome. Firefox is changing its identity for the worse....
