    Hello Team,

    Thanks a lot for the amazing work. I have been using Mozilla Firefox from the very old days as long as I remember. It was also my preferred browser and I have always enjoyed the features, security and I know how it has evolved over time. The new version of Firefox 57 and 58 is really amazing. I have always been disappointed when the browser surveys used to report Chrome as the best and top performing browser. Now, I’m happy to see Firefox Quantum topping the chart.

    I would like to provide a few feedback which could make the browser even better. I have a highend laptop with i7 Octacore processor and 16GB RAM. But, I still see browser taking a few more seconds to load when compared to Chrome. Also, the memory utilization of Firefox is always more when compared to any other browser or apps even if there are one or two tabs open.

    Connecting to WebEx with Firefox makes the browser unstable or doesnt load the pages correctly. I have tested this with other laptops as well. I had to use Chrome in scenarios like this when using WebEx. I don’t have any extensions or addons or themes installed on Firefox to make it heavy, but still have some issues. But, it comparatively is better when compared to the previous versions before Quantum.

    Hope you consider my feedback and make this even better and make it light and not resource hungry.

    Good job guys. Keep rocking!!!

    Thanks again.

    Best regards,
    Shrinivas.
