Don’t get me wrong. I like the Firefox browser, and find many of the third-party extensions very useful, if not indispensible. The first problem is that is loads SLOW! Very slow. Disabling extensions and all the other hoops they have you jump through doesn’t seem to help. It also hogs a lot of memory at times for no apparent reason, so not only can I do nothing on Firefox, I can do nothing on my compute until I force quit it.
The second problem is that I do my Internet-facing tasks on a limited user account. Everything is fine until Firefox needs to be updated. Of course it won’t update on the limited user account, but even if I “Run As” and administrator account and update, I still get the “can’t update” error message always and forever, from then on. The most promising solution I’ve seen so far (i.e. the one I haven’t tried yet, and therefore hasn’t failed) is running Firefox as a limited user from and administrator account. The problem is, I do a lot of Internet facing activities all the time, not just from Firefox, and don’t WANT to use an admin account unless it is absolutely necessary.
I suppose if I have a free day at some point, I can troubleshoot Firefox slow loading, or run Firefox on a limited account, but until then I’ll just use Internet Exploder and Google Chrome, which have neither of the problems I have experienced with Firefox
