Slow as ***
I switched to Opera some time ago, because all of the recent offerings of Firefox have run like treacle on my machine.
I hear this tired complaint the Firefox is to slow every time there is an article about FF.

IMHO the obsession with speed among a large number of users and apparently developers, is a futile diversion and pain in the arse. I am much more interested in stability and security. Something which no-one seems too be reliably able to offer these days.
The Only Setback With FF Is That Some ADDONS Are Not Updated With The New Versions.
I Test Every New Version That Comes Along, But Right Now I Will Continue To Go Back To 3.0.19+.
