Maybe, but as long as waterfox stays up, I will continue to use it.

The devs in fact do not like all the new mozilla mods of late and I hope
that continues.

Well no, I do think we should keep pushing firefox to do better, the
break through build is 2.6 or there abouts.

I just don't care for the inaccessibility of some of the way addons
are structured now, noscript is one of the things.

And the sounds ofcause.

Waterfox works for me, and if they update to their own brouser its
still going to use the older structure, an updated addon store, etc,
some of the older addons, noscripts etc will no longer be updated
anymore, so no more addon updates ever, but then again, most of the
protection is there and will work for ages at any rate.

Since Firefox Quantum (57, 58, 59, ,,,) NVDA is having
incompatibility problems.

Is it time to forget about Quantum?

The 59 version is unusable because NVDA simply don't recognize the
web page, it is "an unknown" objectt.

I am using Windows 7, NVDA 2018.1 32 bits.

I am still using Firefox 52 ESR, but almost changing to Chrome.

Sadly, even Google recognized in its accessibility documentation
that Firefox was the best browser to be used with NVDA.Very sad.
