    Waterfox

    FYI--
    Just installed Waterfox, a fork of Firefox that uses the old Gecko engine, but with security updates a little behind Mozilla's. I'm reporting this for any others who want to try it. I copied the entire contents of my Firefox profile in, and it's 99% identical. also preserved a static copy of my FF profile in case I have to go back to FF 52.9ESR.

    I mentioned Waterfox in the Firefox Updates thread a while ago.

    You may also want to try Waterfox, a fork of Firefox 56 (64 bit only).

    This was just a conclusion of the other thread, which I thought should have its own thread under the Waterfox title, for the benefit of other users.
