    More than half of my extensions are marked as "Legacy". I just disabled automatic updates, and may abandon Firefox if that picture does not change substantially.

    We are getting too radical here...

    Probably the Chrome store has an extension that suits your needs...

    I had updated to 57. Speeddial gone. Now all speed dial addons ask for permission to "access your data for all websites" and more. An example is below.

    Why they need permission to access all data on websites?
    Is it safe?
    There is an add on that does not do this. Windows 10 see it all so why worry about what a Browser does? I do not need speed dial I use the Bookmark Toolbar.

    Going back to 56!


    I installed 57 today. Disaster, No Scrapbook, Tabmixplus etc. Luckily it is possible to go back to 56 by downloading from FileHippo.com - Download Free Software or search for "firefox 56 download" which I have done - everything back to normal. Until key add-ins are written across, there is NO WAY I will move to 57. Bad deal Mozilla.

    Then you are going back to a Browser that is vulnerable. Also I would NOT get any add ons from Chrome.

    So let's hope Gomita can be persuaded to write Scrapbook across to 57. I am not going to lose 10 years of saved web pages. One option would be to run both versions and access 56 when you need to access a saved page, but I don't suppose that is easy to do. Or Mozilla could introduce a scrapbook feature that can read existing folders.

    At the worst, I guess that I can spend a week opening scrapbook pages and saving those I still need to pdf. We'll see.

    I use Chrome as my primary and FireFox as a secondary browser and only use 1 extension for both and that is [Removed] Since the release of FF 57, I'm using that as my primary browser but Chrome is still set as my default. That may change here ricky tick.

    Solution I'm doing is running both. I posted the instructions on the post below.

    Looks good KRL - exactly what I need. Much appreciated.

    But all you Mozilla gurus reading this, please develop a system to allow us to read existing and save new scrapbook items in 57 - one of Firefox's most useful features.
