    A final Version of Firefox has been released today. I already installed it and it is quite fast so far. Remember, old extensions will not work and must be updated (if the developers do that update).

    Not liking it so far...they changed the theme to look like Edge, including there is now advertisements on the front that appear to be immune to ABP.
    Gone is the sleeker look, to the gray blocky feel of Edge.
    Ugh


    Edit....you can remove the ads in preferences. So Kudos for that.

    It starts really faster then before and works without delay. Scrolling is now really smooth. The start page is strange. I can pin pages like in Opera but I can´t rearrange them. There is still no option to block third party cookies.

    So far I don't see a way to make the pins larger either. I haven't really delved into it., but once you turn off the advertisements - the pins still stay tiny. I have no idea why they would remove the ability to move them around either...makes no sense.
    I will continue to use it as time goes by, but I don't really like the looks of it and hate the home page changes.

    No...it updated on it's own a couple of hours ago. But probably only if you are using Win 10...I don't know. Also it looks like it is 64 bit only?

    I hope they improve the start page and will not inflate the browser with useless stuff.

    I don´t know for the updates but I guess it is independent from the OS. And no, there is a regular 32 bit version.
