Suggest 52 ESR as security update are available for that one, not the others up to 56.

This is one reason why I do not agree with Joseph about using 58 in his tutorials. In real world situations they have not yet fixed the access issues to make it as nippy as the old version was.
Shame they needed to go down this road. They could easily keep the old version and do security fixes for some years if they wanted to.

Fallback to FF version 53 seems do the trick. Will try update to latest version just before Quantum

Thanks for your help

Hi All,

I tried Firefox for couple of weeks now and it feels so sluggish. I think it began with Firefox Quantum, Unfortunately the solution that I found in the mozilla forum is to prevent access for accessibility, effectively rendering it useless with NVDA. Does anyone here has another solution?

Best Regards
