That#s what I use. No problem.

Thanks, Trevor. That's reassuring. Presumably I can import my bookmarks from Firefox?

I've not noticed any grey folders, where are you looking?

Sorry, I didn't explain properly! Bookmark folders in the sidebar, as complained about here and here.


Ah, the sidebar.

I just use the dropdown bookmarks and they look untouched:

Correct. I imported mine from I.E.
You get a folder in the book bar at the top named Imported bookmarks or somesuch.
, I've just lost my bookmark toolbar when I was checking. Rolling Eyes

I couldn't manage without the bookmarks toolbar. It's so much quicker than the dropdown, but then I do have hundreds of bookmarks in multiple folder levels. Rolling Eyes

I thought about Chrome but then I wondered how it deals with Adblockers.

Chrome is Google and they thrive on advertising. Would they override Adblock+ and/or uBlock for example.

IE I don't like and Opera is too basic.

I'm waiting for FF57 to be released, not upgrade but watch for the change from addons to web extensions.

Well, I use Adblock (Not Adblock+) and that works OK for me. No ads from Google as far as I can see.

I'm using Adblock+ on Chrome which is fine. I like Ff and used it for years but switched to Chrome because Ff seems to be getting slower and slower.

I'm now on Firefox 57 Quantum and AdBlock Plus is in there as a valid extension.

This new version does seem faster so you may want to give it another try.

I've been running it for a few days now, it is fast.

Most of my add-ons have been converted:

AdBlock+
Privacy Badger
Norton Security is now Norton Web Safe
LastPass

I've used a .css script to move the tabs to the bottom so that add-on isn't needed.

Colorful tabs would be nice but I'm using a theme instead.

Sorted Very Happy
