Yes, it is an Add On...

All one has to do is go Tools>Add Ons   A replacement can be found from there.

I tried it in beta & was impressed with it, it's certainly fast, but it disabled TabMixPlus as they are not compatible. As they are the addons I won't do without, I've gone back to the old Firefox, but I will use it when these addons are updated.

You can customize almost everything to make it look the way you want. When I upgraded a couple of hours ago it copied most of my settings from the previous version so it seems hardly any different . . . except for the speed  8)

The NoScript add-on was disabled but it seems they're bringing out a new compatible version soon.

Seems just as fast as v56.0.02 but as I've a couple of add-ons that aren't yet migrated to Quantum or do not have an equivalent replacement, I've gone back to v56.0.2 in the meantime.

Well I've managed to download my "old" Mozilla, so I'm happy now, everything is as it should be.

I tried the replacement for Reminder Fox, (I mean on the add-ons on Quantum) but it didn't bring up anything.

Maybe I'll try again in a few weeks when all the problems have been ironed out.

The only problem I have now is that when I click on a Rootschat link in an e-mail, it opens in IE instead of Mozilla.  I know there's a solution I just can't think of it at the moment.

Thanks Hallmark, I remembered how to do it fortunately, so now I'm a happy bunny again.  I'm going to lock this topic.
