Whilst I have encountered many peculiarities over the years, I have never encountered that situation.
I wonder whether some recent excitement about the future led you to install it without realising exactly what you were installing.
Pages such as this are reasonably carefully worded:
It’s likely that in some other areas, bloggers are describing Firefox Quantum (just one of the names by which 57 is known) with less care. Causing people to install 57 either:
- prematurely, before 57 is release quality; or
- without realising the implications of (or overlooking) the yellow alerts in Firefox 56
– no such alerts with extended support release (ESR) 52, I guess. Keyword – and I wonder whether the UPPERCASE SHOUTING BY DESIGN causes some people to naturally IGNORE, WALK AWAY FROM WHAT IS SHOUTED:
@meditek2 please: if you can check your browser history, maybe easily identify and recall a web page that misled you, I’ll be very interested. Thanks.
I do not intend to police the blogosphere
;-) but we do need to understand and somehow minimise the negative impacts of situations such as this.
