Once support for Firefox ESR on Vista and XP ends, you may want to consider moving to one of the other browsers such as Comodo IceDragon, K-Meleon, or QupZilla. But for now, Firefox ESR will work fine till June 2018.

Thanks for that with the two suggestions of Comodo Ice Dragon and K-Meleon.

 

My older machine with Windows Vista sp2  IS  32-bit computer.  Also specific to another comment given, protection software on the machine is Norton Security.

 

EDIT:

 

THIS IS WRONG, AND SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN SAID:

Now after a couple days trying, a good apparent alternative to Firefox on Windows Vista is Comodo Ice Dragon, portable edition.  Still slow compared to how Opera responds, but response is faster than Firefox.

I was wrong about Ice Dragon on my Vista machine.  It is almost as slow as Firefox.  Faster, maybe, but still too slow.  Just a little less annoying than Firefox.
