👉🏿FireFox Quantim vs Waterfox 👈🏿

I have been having a few hiccups w/FFQ.  For one thing, browser does not get along w/my add-ons.  YouTube videos on its site were invisible.  I had sound but not video.  Yet, I can view YouTube videos on other websites.  Just not on YouTube's site.  Something has changed in the Quantim version.  Hate it as much as I hate Safari. 


I was in Apple's forums as well as Mozilla forums a few weeks ago to see if other Apple or PC users were having FFQ issues when I noticed lot of posters in both forums kept mentioning this a browser called Waterworks.  It's exactly like FF before it became Quantim. 

I have been testing it for about 2 weeks now.  WW uses the same add-ons as FF & FFQ plus a lot of their own.   I can now view YouTube videos directly on their site again.


I have now ditched FFQ FOREVER!!!


Anybody else tried Waterfox?

not for nothing but I gave up on FF a few months ago, went to Chrome, which I did reluctantly as I liked so much with FF.


but it had become very buggy and there were things that were not working anymore

Never heard of it.  Using FFQ now.  No problems with videos on Youtube; view them every day on the Youtube website.
