How can I get the newest features of Firefox?

If you want to keep your Firefox up to date, with all the latest
features and updates, you'll need to upgrade your computer's operating

Which is why I downgraded to an earlier, less bloated version of
Firefox, that runs faster. I really don't want all the latest features
and updates, which made it fun painfully slowly.

Yes, slow fun is no fun (in software, anyway - some kinds of fun are
nicer slow!).

I agree, older versions run better, especially on older hardware.

It's all part of the planned obsolescense syndrome.

But in my experience the "latest features and updates" often give more
bells and whistles, but with fewer pistons and cylinders.

Yeah. I still use my old stuff like my decade old PCs, analog speakers,
PS/2 mouses and keyboards with my OmniCube KVM from Y2K, etc. They all
still work.
