    The latest update seems to of changed the frequent sites in the jump list to generic Firefox icons rather than use the sites favicon. A minor thing but irritating. Prob my lousy pc not liking the update rather than a widespread issue. I don’t find the jump lists on Firefox all that reliable. Sometimes first right click on the taskbar pinned Firefox shows my pinned sites as generic white paper icon. If I click a second time the icons then show up correctly. Weird. And on one of our machines the frequent sites in the jump list refuse to ever show up. Just get the options to open a tab etc plus the pinned sites.

    EDIT - and then today out of nowhere ‘frequent sites’ finally show up on the jump list. After months of not showing no matter how much I messed around in config. There wasn’t even a Firefox update. The strange white generic paper icons is still there on the pinned sites for the first right click though (unless I right click on something else in the taskbar first whereupon they will show fine first time round)

    Speedy new Firefox Quantum browser has people flocking to it

    Lots of us are installing the overhauled browser, but it'll take a busy 2018 to turn that into a real recovery for Mozilla.

    Those who are using the nightly builds of firefox 59, would you say we have a lot of improvements to look forward to?
    Also, when is 59 expected to go mainstream? (i think i read sometime in January?)....Thanks...

    Anyone seeing the following issue with Firefox Quantum v57?

    On the New Tab page right-click on one of your Top Site icons and look at the pop-up menu for the option to 'Search <search engine> for <"site name">'. Does the site name have an extra letter prefixing its name?

    See image for example...

    All of my Top Sites produce the same bug, whether pinned or unpinned. I have submitted a bug report but if others are seeing the same issue please consider reporting it yourself as it's more likely to get noticed and fixed! Thanks.

    It's a minor bug I know, but it looks rather unprofessional and takes the shine off what is otherwise a great browsing experience.

    Those are probably Keyword or Tag suggestions.

    Hmm, if so how do I get rid of them? Bringing up the properties for ANY of my bookmarks shows nothing entered for tags or keywords (see screenshot below). Besides, all of my Top Site entries were created manually using the Top Site Edit function which has no option to create/remove tags and keywords.
