Boy!
Must be ages since i've last used Firefox!
Since when have they made installation of extensions without need to reboot the browser?

Add-ons still require a restart of the browser. Only a few of them don't require restart, like AdBlock Plus, or uorigin.

In that case, i believe the instant notification to restart in order to fully install has been done away with.

What do you mean?

If you are saying that after the add-on is installed, then the message to restart does not appear... but it still does.

Probably just hit a few that didn't require restart.

Btw, you wouldn't have a page rendering tweak that really works do you?

In some places, i found ways to insert nglayout.initialpaint.delay as integer with 0 as value (as per suggestion in link here below) but with no noticeable speed improvement

That's why i'm wondering if some or more of these tips can really make a difference.

So far, i find Slimjet and Opera to be really faster than Firefox (both for app startup and page rendering).

Win 10 - 64bit

I have been using Firefox since years now. It works perfect for me. I find it sufficiently fast. I have tried other browsers for sometime, but I always return to Firefox.

I used to have that attitude too!
Over the last 2 years, when Mozilla seems to ignore its core users and with the advent of Vivaldi and ongoing improvements to Slimjet (and even Opera - if that can be said) - my wanting to use Firefox by default has been shaken.

Firefox is still very good but Mozilla is going to have an uphill battle at gaining back lost ground.
