bother, I upgraded firefox and 57 broke every single addon I use, and the new greasemonkey broke every script I used. Sadly after many years of supporting netscape/mozilla I'm looking for alternatives. This thread has been very helpful.
I installed waterfox using the instructions from https://www.reddit.com/r/waterfox/comme ... inux_mint/
Code: Select all
echo "deb https://dl.bintray.com/hawkeye116477/waterfox-deb release main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/waterfox-release-hawkeye116477.list
curl https://hawkeye116477.github.io/waterfox-deb/hawkeye116477.key | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install waterfox
Just for completeness, here are the scores from http://www.speed-battle.com
for the browsers I tested on my 18.3 system
1673.36 Waterfox 55
1633.74 Firefox 57
1459.04 PaleMoon 27.6.1
814.47 Chrome 62
So for me at least, RIP firefox, hello Waterfox!
