Maybe you should try Waterfox .. that's based on the pre-quantum Firefox


To installl
Code: [Select]
echo 'deb https://dl.bintray.com/hawkeye116477/waterfox-deb release main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/waterfox.list
then
Code: [Select]
curl https://bintray.com/user/downloadSubjectPublicKey?username=hawkeye116477 | sudo apt-key add -
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install waterfox

@Thomas_Raymond: Thanks, I have installed Chrome and tried Opera as FF updates did't cure the problem.

Seen some interesting +ve reviews of Waterfox, Mark so I shall give it a go.

Have used Waterfox for a fortnight now - very good, just like having my original FF back, thanks again Mark.
