I currently got FF 56. Unfortunately when FF updates to 57 many addons wont work with it. How can I prevent 56 from updating to 57 but also get 57 installed as a separate new profile to test it when it comes out?

And when will 57 debut finally?

If you want to start testing FF57 now you can download the Beta here.

Make sure you use a different profile using the information that DanRaisch provide. And, quit FF and backup you current profile just in case.
