:tools: Scheduled maintenance

Heads up! Downtime for the Forums, related to the NodeBB upgrade, is planned for Thursday, December 14, starting from 10:00 UTC.
Please make sure to finish all your posts before this time. The downtime should only last for a few minutes.

Bye bye Firefox !!

  • Been a user since their conception. Couldnt stand the issues anymore. Im using Opera and just started here a bit ago. Small learning curve but no problem. The OTHER guys, rife with problems. The latest, crashing my Win 10 computer so bad that Ive had to reinstall Win 10 3 times. Absolutely it was Firefox. IDK what happened to them. Started off just awesome and turned into a steaming pile of virtual s***. ANyway, the only issue with Opera right now, its really slow to load up and to load pages. Kinda painful, BUT... Im betting threse a simple solution (fingers crossed) Cheers all.

  • Out of interest which anti-virus are you running? As your problem of "really slow to load up and to load pages" sounds just like mine.

  • With regard to the O.P., it's rare to come across a person who is so totally confident in being so totally illiterate.

    Been using Firefox for many years on Windows, Mac & Linux with no major issues. Nothing beats Mozilla's tab scrolling. The O.P.'s main problem is lack of knowledge, Windows 10 and other malware. I respect what Opera is doing and like the free VPN, but Firefox did not "crash your Win 10 computer." Windows is an unstable house of cards to begin with. If you are sick of reinstalling, replace it with Ubuntu.

  • Firefox is the best! But version 57 will break old extensions so things might change then :)

  • OK, Ill be no posting here anymore. Seems being an asshole is universal. What a fucking asshole you are there CY8. That an the lack of any really helpful responses here.

  • Any chance of answering my question above before you disappear completely?

  • That an the lack of any really helpful responses here.

    Your lack of cooperation has a lot do with the result here: You declared that Firefox is trash and it "absolutely" damaged your Windows installation, which is simply not possible if you obtained a clean copy of the installer from an authorized source. So you're really declaring yourself to be deeply computer-illiterate.

    Then you declared that something is wrong with Opera because it is slow — which is also virtually impossible. If Opera is slow all the time, the problem is with some other software or your internet connection. And this is only a forum for Opera browser support. No one here has an obligation to teach you how to use a PC, and help you fix Windows (or your internet service.)

    Many of us dont really want to spend our life fixing Bill Gates software design mistakes for free so he can make billions from Windows. If you are having that much trouble with Windows and you cannot afford to pay for tech support, my advice is to stop using Windows because it requires a relatively high level of administrative intervention compared to Mac OS or Ubuntu running on a supported hardware platform.

    Its possible that your system is infected with malware and even if not, the kind of support you are going to need here will require a technician to take control of your computer to use various system tools. I might even be willing to do that for free, purely out of curiosity about how you damaged your installation -- but you wont attract people willing to help when you only go around whining and blaming things you know nothing about, and refuse to state a question or answer one either!
