    Sadly it still doesn't block autoplay videos, only the sound. Quite a few sites have videos that follow you down the page yet they still won't block autoplay. I used to be able to change settings in the config to block autoplay videos altogether but they put paid to that a few releases ago.

    I use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/fir...able-autoplay/ and it works a treat

    I would probably swap to FF but as a long time Opera user I can't do without quick dial home page and tiled bookmarks. I have looked for an FF extension that could replicate the feature but couldn't find one that really matched up.

    Vanilla FF can do the quick dial thing with the new tab page, you just need to mess with the config to turn off the other stuff on the new tab page and increase the number of tiles

    I would like to see more GPU utilization by this this browser.
    Also there seems to be a blue highlight that hangs around. Which
    never happened with IE !

    Glad Firefox is still prioritising privacy/security. Stuff like this is why it's one of my favourite web browsers.
