IMO, I'd LOVE to see Firefox become usable again. As far as I'm concerned, right now it's not (it's nearly usable again with v52). It's simply too slow, too sluggish, takes too long to load pages, hangs for too long when using more than 1 tab. But sadly, with the current state of Firefox, the performance is so terrible (and this is on an 8 core 16 GB ram pc that has an SSD as it's only drive), that I absolutely cannot bring myself to use it.
