Fwd:  Stupidly Slow Firefox ESR (RJRiley.C)

We have several thousand installs of ESR 52.6.0 and there has not been a report 
yet about slowdowns like your experiencing. The only add ons those installs 
have are the ones put in by the users. I do add that we are on Win 10 
Enterprise, 64 bit, with 64 bit Firefox.

Not only slowing down over time, but also crashing.? I have noticed that

certain web sites cause this, one example is mlive.com, where just three 
concurrent web pages loaded would bring a 4th gen I7 with nearly a 8000 
CPUBenchmark rating down. Problems with Firefox have become so frequent that I 
now rarely use it. I would appreciate feedback on why mlive.com is such a 
problem. RJRiley
