anyone else think that v28.6.0.1 is considerably snappier than the last few versions?
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

I'm still using Firefox as a primary browser, so I can't really say. I was using Palemoon for a while there because FF was not rendering certain websites properly. I found that it was my HTTPS Everywhere extension that was causing that problem, though. Had to disable it.

By the way, if you're bored, give Basilisk (a Palemoon derivative) a try. It'd definitely snappy!

Eric, was it HTTPS Everywhere in PM or FF causing the problem?
I have it disabled in PM but still enabled in FF.

I don't remember, Liz. I don't seem to even have HTTPS Everywhere installed in Palemoon. It was definitely causing me script issues in Firefox at my private forum, here at Scot's, and on my weather/radar site that I visit often.

Thanks Eric. I remember trying to figure out if it is needed now because browsers seem to use https. When I search, I can't seem to find an answer to "do I need this extension or not". I prefer to keep my extensions to a minimum, if I can.

Are you using at VPN? If so, HTTPS Everywhere is definitely not necessary. Your data to and from the VPN is ALWAYS in an encrypted tunnel.

I pay only $31/year for security and peace of mind. It's not expensive at all. The prices have gone up a wee bit since I started with Private Internet Access. It's $37 and some change per year now. Something you might want to consider in this day/age of nastiness on the Internet.
