Re: Further Analysis Of Firefox 57

As I've said before I've had no issues. I did run 58 beta 3 for a couple of days. It seemed slower than the current 57. I went back to it on Friday. My new PC I bought over the summer is a quad core with 8 GB of memory.

I think we know that there is no real issue with some fast machines running

10, the only other people I've seen with the problem I have had have, maybe

coincidentally, been using 7 and the 32 bit version of 57 on the 64 bit os.

the processor speed is a red herring.

Of course a slow dual or single core will be painfully slow.

I have just updated to Firefox 57 and so far have not come across any

issues. My OS is Windows 10 64 bit.
