Comment (by cypherpunks):

 You didn't follow Mozilla with enabling Win64 in esr45-based Tor Browser
 versions. Though it was much easier, then e10s. And now you have no
 sandboxing on Windows and incompatibility on macOS (and does everything
 work in linux32?). Also Mozilla didn't fix all the bugs to ship e10s for
 everybody (everybody? add-ons? who cares? (c) Mozilla). But sandboxing is
 available only on top of e10s, well, its bogus version, the proper
 sandboxing is still in development...
 So, instead of well-tested esr52-based Tor Browser we'll get all-in-one
 with bugs from switching and more weird bugs from multiprocessing, called
 the new "stable". Great.
