    Tnx. Edwin, just updated it, my auto update is always off.
    Some extensions and plugins that I kept on "Ask to activate" are gone. "Video Download Helper" was updated too.
    Yup, that's a 'biggie'!

    Perhaps those who require the use of certain plugins could run the new ESR Version.

    Firefox ESR 52.0 is the new Extended Support Release version. You may enable NPAPI plugin support in it.

    I don't miss those removed, will probably be able to find substitutes for them, main ones work fine.

    If you require plugin functionality for which there is no suitable WebAPI, perhaps, for example, an older version of Office,

    you may navigate to about:config from the address bar, right click and choose New/Boolean, add plugin.load_flash_only and set it to False

    Ugh, you're right, I think Office 2013 plugin is missing and it was set to Always ask.
    PS.
    Did that and all plugins are back.

    I don't generally use the addons, so I'm probably one of the least affected by these changes.

    I will, however, follow the leaders in TenForums in order to get the best experience.

    Seems that way to me. Also, pages load faster then in Chrome, so far, including the ones I frequent with one main video window, and up to four thumbnail videos running.

    Speaking of startup, I had an attempt to hijack FF the other day. I set Start page to Google again but now when I close FF with multiple tabs open and start FF again, I don't get offer to open tabs again. Any way ti fix that ?
    Edit.
    Me and my big mouth, I just fixed it.
