I'm using Vivaldi, it's already almost better than Firefox.

The only thing missing is, when opening a lot a tobs, and closing them it should move to the next tab instead of the previous open tab and being able to open bookmars from the bookmark toolbar in a new tab with mouse 3 or right click, as of right now if you click on the bookmark it will open in the current tab, also being able to switch tabs into new windows just by draggin and being able to merge them back, you can switch tabs to a new window by right clicking on it but it will reload and is not the same as firefox where you could just drag them out of the window.

This is getting a lot of development so I'm confident those issues will be fixed in less than two months.

It is on 24 base because that's the last build of FF that didn't suck. FF didn't use to be slow as shit, so I don't know where this 24 base = slow idea comes from. SJW fuckery bloating FF with useless botnets is what made this browser slow as shit.
Literally the only downfall of using outdated base is security, but that is pretty much solved by using noscript+ublock combo.

MozillaEx 2 hours ago | parent

I worked closely with Mozilla during the first few years of Firefox.

It's only the same in name and logo these days.

The hard truth is internal and external politics in the organization were so toxic senior-level programmers who were more risk averse were pushed out.

Imagine taking C++ pros who advised in the creation of W3C/IEEE/etc drafts, and tossing them out in favor of node.js programmers.

The gray hairs were betrayed in favor of node hipsters. Whatever happened to respecting those who made you.

This hits hard. The truth is Mozilla's days of glory are numbered.

Over the coming years the decline will come to eventually wrestle Firefox out of Mozilla's hands and into a normal open source project.

Was all this office backstabbing worth it?

This is what happens when you lose the hacker ethic. It's disappointing.

Because men in those communities are thirsty and willing to do the bidding of SJWs in hope of a sexual reward. SJWs aren't really attacking specific groups, they're just trying out their crap everywhere and then jump on whatever group they find enablers in. They tried a while back to attack metal but gave up quickly when they discovered there were no metalheads willing to be their white knights and the female metalheads didn't want a bunch of tumblristas telling them what to do. SJWs are lazy. They didn't want to put in the effort of doing all the fighting themselves so they moved on to other groups. Without beta white knight enablers, they would have zero power anywhere.
