    Hi, the most recent firefox update (57) was automatically updated on my pc this morning. Previous version worked fine. New version deleted my old desktop shortcut, didn’t create a new one and after looking for it in the gubbins of my machine I tried to open it, run it, troubleshoot it, do anything with it but it won’t open or work. I have Windows 10. I can find the firefox program on my machine but is totally non responsive. I have uninstalled it and re-installed it – same issue….it disappears into the machine and won’t come out and play!! Please advise how to fix this. Thank you 🙂

    TY all for your contribution. I was worried about Firefox, but this new version is great. its fast and really pops. no more memory leaks overnight. I was really close to downgrading Firefox to my #2 browser. But thanks to 57, I’m keeping it at #1. Great Job!!!

    Thanks for your hard work. But Firefox 57 takes >10x CPU cycles with just Mozilla home page open than Chrome with 8 tabs open. Like to get off Chrome but I can’t do it yet.

    Thank you for all the time that everyone has put into making Firefox what it is today! It has been my go-to browser now for the last 10 years! You guys rock!

    Nobody is perfect. The new version of ‘Firefox’ doesn’t open ‘Google Earth pro’ (GEP) as the previous version did (at least on Windows 7). The problem should be fixed the sooner the better. GEP is a widely used application.
