I gave up firefox already a few years ago. Now it's a modern looking browser from the outside, but the inside is still old. After all those years they are finally doing something about that with their servo project, but in my eyes they come mutliple years too late. It's like they don't know what they have to do with it. It's still the browser that is on my pc quite slow and that I can make crashing in 5 minutes. Still the same unresolved and annoying bugs. Copying others, almost no innovation and they are just removing features out of the browser for no reason, but instead they add addons like pocket (and now they are experimenting with Cliqz) by default...
They want to look like Chrome with their australis project, with electrolysis they want multiple processes just like Chrome, they want webextensions like Chrome, they changed their settings pages in tabs like Chrome, they are looking into getting PAPPI instead of NPAPPI like, you know, Chrome....
And now with Servo they want slowly getting Gecko more modern, but in the stage that Chromium now is, it still would take them far too much time to be at the same level.
Palemoon is the way to go for good old firefox fans or you just make the switch to a Chromium based browser.

Everything vent downhill after v2.0! Nowdays they are adding then removing bloatware for no logical reason, trying to imitate Chrome instead of remaining unique browser and keep current user base and slowly working on getting new users. They only infuriated old users to abandon Firefox and go elsewhere.

Greed ruins everything.

I am going the route of CyberFox and Vivaldi browsers.

Seriously no one uses Opera? Why?

It has built-in ad blocker, VPN and battery saver. If you enable Opera Turbo on slow network, you can actually surf faster. You can also install Chrome extensions if you install Download Chrome Extensions.
I tested Opera and I have different results than you do on my laptop. It seems a lot slower in comparison to Waterfox or Vivaldi. Safari is fastest on the MBP, but the lack of addons and customization deters me from using it fulltime. It is still my go to browser for online banking.

Chrome addons are all garbage. Main reason why I'm sticking with Firefox is excellent addons. If they ruin that, I don't see much point in using it anymore.

What results are you talking about? ;)

In my case, Opera is faster than Chrome, Firefox and other browsers. About Firefox, Waterfox, Pale Moon and other Mozilla based browsers, I don't like them because of cold start. While Opera starts for cca. 3 sec (on cold start), Firefox and other browsers takes forever and when they start, they are laggy for few minutes. If web page has flash content, Firefox freezes while Chrome, Opera and other Chromium browsers don't.

Firefox is my second browser, after Opera, when before it was always my default browser

I keep it on my computer by the extensions, (just the opposite of Edge), but if its innovation consists of an involution I think it will lose millions of users. It is the default browser in tmost of linux distros and all those who have been hitting the keyboard for many years, however, I notice that new generations look at Firefox as an old dinosaur and it is not just ahead by opera, Vivaldi , Cent and others, if not for their own based in (Cyberfox, Palemoon ...)

I, who am also an old dinosaur, I want them to recover their personal seal, that which has made them so great, now seems a transatlantic boat with a monkey drunk as a helmsman, giving flocks from one place to another without us to see if they really know where and how they want to go.

Obviously all this is my personal opinion, are the feelings that I collect, perhaps because I do not like changes, but I do not like the guidelines that Firefox is taking
