@jaclaz, the problem is no matter what you run on the internet there's a security risk. I've been using computers for 20 years and never had a problem with viruses yet. It's a matter of taking advantage of the right tools, like noscript and turning on javascript only when needed. I do upgrade software when it's worth using but not for the sake of it.

My hunch is Mozilla is desperate for market share and they need people off the older versions and onto quantum and they use security fears as a way to nudge people in that direction. It used to work but it doesn't so much anymore.

Sure.

I have been using computers for some more time than you, adopting similar techniques (with similar results :)) but of course ours is just "survivor bias" (at least in the perverted minds of the new generation of geniuses that is populating the tech scene).

@DanR20 That's reddit for ya, no criticism about whatever a subreddit is about, is allowed, that's why I stopped using it completely (it was, and still is, going downhill anyway).

@404notfound I noticed that too. But in my case it happens with all, even with firefox 52.9 when I watch some videos. Have you check the CPU temperature? It grows a LOT sometimes. Maybe it's my toaster thing that is finally dying... :P

@Tamris, same here, don’t post there myself but do visit occasionally because of the many links to good articles. No sense wasting my time arguing about it, let them have their quantum, I suspect it’s not long for this world anyway.

this is one of the many reasons why I have never donated a single cent to Mozilla company

they don't want to provide official support anymore... it's OK

they have erased the developers labor of thousands of hours over the years and want to force me to stay up to date... it's incomprehensible.

sooner or later the Windows updates servers for XP will get shut down as well.

@roytam1 we count on you. you are our hope !

If this will happen we might just set up an unofficial windows update site.And get the full functionality somehow:)

Avast recognized recent Basilisk.exe from Roytam1 as malware by heuristic engine. I reported that to Avast as false positive.

Heuristic engines are always snake oil (so is Norton's SONAR engine), never trust it. It is always good to disable it, in case you can't do so, add exclusion to folders you don't want it to scan.
