Anybody happy with Firefox-57?

I am totally confused and went back to 52esr.

I use it and there is no problem. Slackel uses Firefox-57 now in repos because of Meltdown and Spectre.
I suggest to move ~/.mozilla folder to ~/.mozilla-bak and then run Firefox to create a new profile. Then copy the key3.db, logins.json and places.sqlite files from ~/.mozilla-bak/firefox/something.default/ to new created ~/.mozilla/firefox/something.default/ to have saved logins and passwords and bookmarks you may have saved.

Thanks!
What I did, made a back-up as suggested. Then copied the
entire something.default over to the new ~/.mozilla/firefox
and changed profile.ini to the backed-up something.default.
That gave me better results and I am using now Firefox-57.
