Use Firefox? Quantum upgrade offers twice the speed but doesn't support older extensions
The Firefox web browser has been upgraded and released as Firefox Quantum. If you're a member of staff using Firefox on a managed machine you'll automatically be upgraded. If you use Firefox on a personal device, you'll need to update if you want to use the latest version.
The new Quantum release offers twice the speed of the previous version of Firefox, but you may find some applications that use older extensions no longer work. Most of the top 100 extensions are supported, but if you do experience any issues, you could try Edge (Windows 10), Chrome or Internet Explorer as an alternative browser.
