    I currently have Firefox installed under Win7. The last update doesn't just nag about Adobe Flash, it just flat out refuses to run it. There is a different version for corporate users (52.2.0 esr) that need Flash, so I just installed that. Everybody hates on Flash, but half the damn internet requires Flash to operate.

    I'm trying out a Browser called Slimjet. Its 32bit and is based on Chome. Not the snappyist but is functioning fine on this P4 with 1.5gigs of ram so far.

    I thought it was a quirk of one Asus / AMD / Win7 machine that rendered some FF content as a black window - this from vers. 4x upward. Submitted bug reports but they were largely ignored.

    Finally just removed FF and am currently using IE 11. Not doing anything fancy, though... Updating Flash every few days has become a pain.

    Opera? The fat lady has sung.

    I've been using Slimjet for about 8 months and it seems to be quite decent.

    My last update to Debian 8.x (32 Bit) XFCE installed Firefox 52.0 and it is terrible. I can't even get to gmail or my google drive.
    It just hangs and waits forever.

    his morning I updated to 54.0.1 (32 Bit) and also installed the required libstdc++5 library package. So far everything seems to be working,
    as I can get to gmail, download, and access my google drive.

    I might need to look into that. V52 broke Java, also, which we use at work for printing FedEx labels.

    Running FF 54 on Mint 17.3 here - no problems, other than the usual FF bloat.

    Down the road, I've got my sights set on NetSurf - it's still in alpha be seems really promising and lightweight, too.

    Speaking of which, I thought that adobe was going to drop flash a few years back, but yet, it's still here. I really dislike the internet's heavy use of scripts and flash. I miss the days of simple fast html without all the fluff and glitz (late 90s).
