Firefox users..

Anyone else finding it a boat load of arsegravey at the moment?

 

I have used it for years, but since they broke add-ons a couple of months ago, which they acknowledged and fixed a short while after, things haven't been good, YouTube tabs seems to crash a lot and have strange rendering problems (artifacts etc) when playing windowed, and just a lot of full blown crashes where the send a report to Mozilla box comes up. 

 

Disabled addons and deleted temp files etc doesn't seem to have helped.

Not having any crash problems here, but that thing with the certs not long ago fucking up my lovely containers really pissed me off.

 

Still, what's the options *shrug*.  Best of a bad bunch still.

 

ETA

Link for those who haven't heard of containers. They're worth learning about.

Random vid I've only skipped through -

The only problem I've had with Firefox is when they fucked up the add-ons a few monthe ago like you said. Since then it's running as good as ever, and I often have 20+ tabs open. Clear all your cookines and shit, reinstall Firefox, and run Malwarebytes while your at it.

Had loads of bother with Firefox lately so I swapped to Slimjet. It's based around Google Chrome and so far runs a lot faster. This is on a Windows 7 laptop.

For the artifacts and crashing try flipping the hardware acceleration switch in browser settings - Unless your computer is ancient or you play 3d games in browser(maybe) you shouldn't notice much of a performance hit.

Some gpus can't change gear fast enough, some don't atall, (and that's just different drivers on my card!) there are probably other bugs too, but i need to stop thinking computers.
