Malcolm, you'll have to make sure that you've got Mozilla updates set to let you know they are available, but that they can't be downloaded unless you agree, otherwise you'll find Mozilla will just update itself to Quantum.

I updated to Quantum and am using their reminder add-on, it works fine for me, but will see how it goes. ;)

Sorry to say that there is no plans to update Reminderfox ever to the new HTML5 needed to run on Quantum

Oh dear, well I shall hold off updating to Quantum as long as possible then.  To test out Thunderbird calendar I put some reminders in that were also on Firefox reminder.  I normally ask to be notified a few days ahead and Reminder Fox does that and then reminds me daily up to and including the day of the event.  Thunderbird on the other hand reminded me a few days ahead but that was it.  I think there's a way round it so I'll have a play until I'm happy enough to use it totally and maybe then I'll update to Quantum.
