"Firefox is About to Become an Almost Complete Copy of Chrome"

When this happens I'll use Pale Moon as my default browser because I definitely don't want anything close to Chrome on my computer.

@lakrsrool,

I use Firefox ESR.

That's very interesting midnight, I wasn't aware of this version, thanks for that input.  As stated on the : Extended Support Release web page:

Quote
Who is it not for?

Individual users who always want the latest features, performance enhancements and technologies in their browser without waiting for them to become available in ESR several development cycles later.

Do you notice delays as far as what is released as compared to some of the topics discussed in the forum regarding releases having to do with the regular personal FF releases?

So then the Avast Online Security plugin we discussed on the previous page is available for the ESR version of FF?

Presumably this is the browser used where you work which is why you're using this version.

Well it virtually has happened as of FFv42, but then you can't do anything about that as FF ESR is presumably at our work place.  :-\

To stay on topic...

I just tried again to sign in with Pale Moon browser and this time it works... 

If this was fixed by Avast then thank you.

Thanks avast.
Im finally able to log in with pale moon my favourite web browser.

Even though i dont agree with this form of discrimination its nice to see that avast finally provided a solution.

Im puzzled as to why avast did not do this from the start.
Of course with google being a large corporation they no doubt shook a few dollars about to gain numero uno status with the avast team.

Ethics anyone..? 8)

This is really sloppy work by avast and discriminatory in its very nature.
No avast ,not everyone wants to use google chrome thank you and attempting to shove it down avast users throats will not work either.
Maybe if enough opera users bark from the highest rooftops then avast may turn a deaf ear into a listening ear and actually sort thr god forsaken mess up.

Look at the amazing turnaround in regard to pale moon users.For weeks pale moon users could not log in and were then subsequently fed a mixture of avast contrived trollop as to why this was and then finally...VOILA.!! it was fixed.
Pure laziness and a security company should know better than to try and dictate what browser people should use. 8) 8)

Try to make a positive post for a change, or show everyone how it should be done in your opinion.
It seems you know it all and can do a much better job.
