Hi, VinDsl.
You use a lot of addons. One or two addons are enough. Ublock origin is better than Adblock Plus.

Hi Alex

Thanks !  I'm a Chromium fanboi, sooo ...

I use Fx for testing purposes mostly, and for the occasional critical HTTP download. 

Thunderbird is still a joy though.   :)

Not quite sure what you mean by "borders", but if you want some extra screen real-estate in Firefox, here's 2 addons for you...

There's a jazzilion addons and themes for Firefox .. WAY more than Chrome.

This has been a bit an eyeopener for me.  First of all, CBS News, believe it or not, still uses Flash.  But I've never been able to get CBS News to work for me in Chromium no matter what, but in Firefox, even with security add-ons (Flashblock and Privacy Badger), CBS News comes to life for me.  And, for me, this is a significant discovery.  This CBS News enigma intrigues me.  Why, on my computer at least, do the CBS News videos play in Firefox, but not in Chromium?  Did I block some precious little cookie way back when in Chromium, but now have no idea which one it might be?  I don't know.  I'll reality test this cookie theory of mine by unsyncing my Google account to see what happens.  So much for that theory, I've blocked nothing other than third-party cookies and site data, and unchecking that box, logging out and then logging back in, does not make any difference at all  I get no CBS News in Chromium. * :-\

Also, Flash Control, that works fine on my computer seems to slow things to a crawl, in Firefox, on my friend's computer.  I put standard Flashblock on his computer today, and it's working much better.  Also, Flashblock works today in Firefox on my computer too.  I must have experienced a bad installation yesterday --nothing more than that.  :)


Yes, your link helped with the boarder problem I had mentioned.  I just copied and pasted that phrase 'title bar and boarders' from Chromium browser:

Under Settings > Appearance > Use system title bar and boarders --that's all I meant by that.  I don't really know what Chromium/Chrome means by "boarders" either.  The phrase "system title bar" seems sufficient to me.

Yes, there are a jazzilion add-ons in Firefox.  I'm impressed with the selection.  Many of these cannot be found in Chrome's store, so I see.

@VInDSL  I have have to scale nearly everything up site by site in Firefox, but after a while, I've scaled up pretty much everything I need.

* I know this makes little sense, I can get CBS News in Opera.

[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)
