Feedback on performance vs firefox 32bit

Unread post by yereverluvinuncleber » 2018-09-16, 14:59

Just had reason to fire up firefox ESR 52.9 32bit to avoid some of the captcha-hell I've been encountering in PM 27.93 32bit and FF's captchas worked well. What really surprised me was how SLOW firefox was in rendering the pages, just text and a few simple images on and other pages in that blog. Opening the same pages in PM and they loaded in less than half the time, so much quicker that it was peceivable. I just had a inkling refreshed of why I moved to PM in the first place, friendly UI, desktop-proven, XUL compatible.
