Re: Latest Firefox is extremely slow

Hi Andy:

This information might not help you much, but it might change your
attitude about Firefox.

The latest episode of the Eyes On Success podcast features an
interview with Jamy Teh, who, as you know, was one of the guys who
originated NVDA, and he now works at Mozilla. As he points out in the
interview, Firefox version 57 is not where they would like it to be,
but he promises that the next version, 58 will show a substantial
improvement in the performance of Firefox.

I am done with mozilla..

If they say that screen readers are the problem I will use water fox which

as all the stuff I need.

True it will eventually use outdated addons but so what.

With this new processer bug fix, I suspect firefox will be even worse.

Hi Group,

I have the latest 57 version, I think its 5 or 6 as in 57.005 or 57.006

and I don't see this sluggishness.

Yes. Run the version 52 ESR or simply wait till V 58 comes out.
Download 58 beta build 13 also if you'd like. That's what I'm running
now. Its not as slow as V577.3.

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
