    noticed about other screwups for us with Quantum,
    we lost noscript as well - hard to find options tab too,
    amongst others

    all came back with re-install of 56.02

    made sure "no updates allowed" checked

    but don't trust Firfox, last time we remember we had to do
    this kind of thing, they updated anyway

    FYI - this is what we used - english US 64bit

    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...ion-of-firefox

    DIRECT LINKS

    Firefox 56.0.2 64-bit (US English)
    https://download-installer.cdn.mozil...p%2056.0.2.exe

    Firefox 56.0.2 32-bit (US English)
    https://download-installer.cdn.mozil...p%2056.0.2.exe

    I definitely can't live without noscript or IDM which I paid for long ago and dearly love.
    F/F have stated that it's up to 3rd party stuff to make themselves compatible with F/F. I'm switching to pale moon

    Welcome to the Pale Moonies. I've been using it over here for years and it works fine. My main browser is Vivaldi and I keep it porn free

    It's a browser that forked from Firefox some years ago. It works fine but doesn't get as much development/change as mainstream FF. Try it.

    we don't know much about this option,
    your advice on this please, we may well try it

    you use chrome and something called Tapermonkey

    we dont have google chrome, or chrome anywhere

    we assume you need to go through IE to do this, or MSN or ?

    Tampermonkey looks interesting, anyone using it and your thoughts/
    advice on this please

    thanks

    Thumbs up

    PS

    changing back to FF 56.02 got back most

    BUT greasemonkey is now greasepoint, changed by
    Firefox to its new formulae

    SO greasemonkey still does NOT work in checking links

    You have to reinstall the older version of Greasemonkey (3.17). See Frosty's post here:

    Also make sure you turn off updates for Greasemonkey after the install.

    also found VideoDownloader app now requires you to download an addition app for it to work

    so we got rid of it

    now use Youtube Video Downloader Ultimate 1.2
    so far so good
