Waterfox is somehow faster than FF. I'm using both.
Sorry about the old thread post here, but...
I just installed the latest version of this browser, on a test rig... to test it on Win10 19H1 v1903 x64.
It appears to be working good here on my 1st spin around the block.
I found some VPN add-ons for FireFox. There is choice of countries for your location and some block settings. I'm using the "Touch VPN" add-on. I tried the others (Stark VPN) just short runs so can't say how dependable they are. Or you can also just use Tor Browser portable.
Have you tried Pale Moon? You can use the portable editions of those browsers rather than installs. I run browsers off my USB.
Pale Moon is good but you can't add add-ons to block ads
Pale Moon has its own add-on repository now. It doesn't depend on Firefox. The good folks of Pale Moon, made sure to fork the browser, way before Mozilla went to Quantum. Add-ons were forked as well. (albeit I'm curious about Quantum possibly improving over time)

this is my choice of browser to all of my devices/platforms atm. I liked how Brave speeds up my browsing experience
BRAVE was viral marketed all over the web for about a week, if you read their website you will find out it is essentially ADWARE. They replace ads with their own or you can pay website owners with bitcoin in some convoluted scam they are trying to pull. Really they just want to become an ad network.
there are ad blockers.
1. AB Prime
2. Ad Block Latitude
3. Script Block
Sends the name of the file you're downloading to Google for whitelist checking; stores your IP address associated with the file for a few weeks.
Every URL you even begin to type in the address bar is sent to Google, in whole or in fragments, for auto-completion purposes.
Connects to Google every 30 minutes to download a list of malicious URLs, so the fact that you even have Chrome open is transmitted to Google.
Asks you to login to your Google account, so your browsing tabs, history, etc. is stored on Google servers.
Connects to websites in the background before you are even finished typing them in, without your explicit instruction.
Contains an RLZ identifier, an encoded string sent together with all queries to Google.
Summary: There is nothing, nothing, you can do in Chrome that isn't transmitted to Google through some channel.
Nice advice, but why it took 3,5 years to get your advice
Well, you just ask what is wrong with it.
And I just see your post.
