I see Mozilla Quantum, Firefox's new browser was released today, has anyone downloaded it, or even Beta tested it before today's release?

I'm always a bit wary that I'm going to lose everything I got on my current Mozilla Firefox browser.

Just downloaded it 10minutes ago, certainly quicker on browsing.

Oh no I hate it, it was slow to download and everything is s-o-o slow, my tabs, like Sky News, BBC News etc didn't open unless I re-loaded them - easy to do by clicking on a tiny little circle that just went round and round and round - and worst of all I've lost my Firefox calendar, as it's not compatible with the new Mozilla Quantum - how stupid is that and even more annoying why didn't the blurb about Mozilla Quantum state that.  Fortunately, I do have all my appts etc written on a normal calendar, but I like the pop up reminders.  I've uninstalled Mozilla Quantum and even done a system restore, but I can't get back to the original Mozilla and it doesn't appear to be available to download.

Looks like I'm stuck with Mozilla Quantum, or I'll just go back to IE, which is what I'm using to type this.
