Smooth update from v Running Windows 10 and Firefox from an Ethernet connected desktop.

I also managed to get the Kamoj add-on reinstalled.

Thank you for your work!
Excellent as always ! Currently running the snapshot version and no issues anywhere.

P.S - Voxel, are you planning to add more TCP congestion control algorithms in future ? Some modern ones like BBR, C2TCP or even PCC ?
