Subject description: Still very useful

FF27 that I put in the updates to slacko5.7 spins still works a treat with TLS1.2 and foreward secrecy. Its a root only package, everything installs to root, and the desktop icon must be linked to root/.mozilla/firefox/firefox. That which resides in usr needs to be removed. One might say its a modular approach... don't like it, just remove the dot mozilla file in root and the root/dot cache/dot mozilla folders. Voila!, gone.

AUG 2017: This includes a few settings changes since the last update. In essence, sessionstorre.js will not save any pages, or settings upon resume from a crash. This is important as theres no data leak after something went wrong. It also causes less memory to be consumed in storing such information JIC FF27 crashes.

There is a change in YouTube ALL HTML5... it seems this add-on used IE10 as a default pathway to function. Recently Google (owner of YouTube) stopped supporting IE in general. Thus, changes had to be made in the way the addon works. Be aware that;
1.) the vid is no longer paused
2.) the annotations and autoplay must be manually turned off (gear button)
3.) the vids will not play in a new window

All 128-bit securityhas been falsed. Google was able to force a collision a few months ago. There is a SHA256 sum as a text file that may be D/L prior to Browser D/L.

Link to download the August 19, 2017 UPDATE.
