Yea same lol, played many mp3s from sites through FF but never from my machine
maybe they should think about striping bloated feature no one uses from FF and it might increase its performance cause it been rather bad for years now compared to how it was originally. custom 64 bit complied for speed can only do so much,
I tried Edge it it rather fast, but like chrome it pain in the ass to get to clear cache data and cookies out side of doing in edge and doing it edge dont clear it all and it has no clean on exit function I can find either. so i wont use it like I wont use chrome.
IF i cant have that data complete cleared on EXIT (not on restart like chrome does) or if the browser own internal clearing dont clear it all data which EDGE dont do.
I refuse to use the browser. I see it as security issue bad malware could be sitting in that cache and do the damage before chrome is even restarted to do the actual clearing.
Flash and Firefox is match made in hell. I don't even have flash installed for Firefox. If I need to use site that uses Flash I use Edge instead.
I think that I'm going to give Vivaldi a try...
Not bad first release. Though... Edge is still hands down faster when it comes to loading pages. Scrolling is incredibly smooth on Edge too.
this is not super useful but may come in handy some day thank you
You can use it as video player too (h264+aac in mp4 container, webm, vorbis).
Just got v45.0.2 through
hmm interesting CF has been on 45.0.2 fore few weeks now,
So I j ust noticed the Hitching that was happen when FF/CF starts up "noticable when open menu the moment you FF/CF starts you will see hitch in the animation" Hitch is gone the momeny self-destructing cookies is loaded and you see it icon.
I thought this was do to ABP, which why I switched to Ublock but isnt from either of them, It happen cause self-destructing cookies addon, cause moment I disable the addon I and Open FF/CF and see not hitchs on loading.
Anyone else noticed this behavior ? my Profiles is on HDD and not my my SSD?
That's probably your biggest problem.
I highly doubt that but to just prove a point, I made new profile put it on my SSD and this still happened.
though I guess I could put both my FF/CF and Thunderbird profiles on my SSD seeing I long since setup both to put all cache in to ram and not on the disk, so there would be no needless writes done. though before I do this is there way I can double check website cache is in memory and on on the disk?
According to the s.m.a.r.t sdd has 5 TB written 689 days up and my HDD has 1369 days up with 180gb written , which is lie cause 25 days ago it said 280gb written think the HDD might be failing last i checked it was at 80% life,
the drive is altest 10 years old with about 8 hour a day up time since i got it it also might be why I think it has slowed down i barely able to get 80mb's out it these days.
It's faster to put the cache and profile on SSD. I've written over 10,5 TB's to my Samsung 830 which is quite a lot considering that it's only 128 GB in size. It still works just as well as when it was new.
However, if it still happens I'd
Start from scratch. Export bookmarks and passwords so that you can import them later.
Uninstall the whatever version of Firefox you have and clean all leftovers. Remove the profile folder completely too.
Use official 64-bit Firefox build.
Then start installing extension one by one to see what causes issues.
Did all that aready And like said its the SDC addon, maybe at some point I might put my profiles on my SSD but i not ready for that, and like said all my cache for both FF/CF/TB are all in memory. I still not sold on SSD life time realiablity

Just a quick update about default Privacy Tracking Protection settings from now on...
Since Firefox 46.0 was released Privacy Tracking Protection (if you've used it before) by default is set just for Private Browsing i.e. Private Windows, you can check that via:
...or: Tools -> Options -> Privacy
...and below Tracking option only: Use Tracking Protection in Private Windows ...is available.
To enable/unlock Privacy Tracking Protection option both for normal browsing and for private browsing you should do next:
about:config -> privacy.trackingprotection.ui.enabled ...change from: false ...to: true
then go to: aboutreferences#privacy ...and Privacy Tracking Protection should be "unlocked" both for normal & private browsing, choose: Always ...below Use Tracking Protection

Does anyone else get the forum not marking a thread as read, after you even posted in it, and hit the "New Posts" button?
I have to tell FF to "Forget about this site" in history, to remove it completely, and then it works again for a while
Something screwy going on with the cookies I think, but it only seems to affect this forum
