I had some problems with firefox and installed and reinstalled before I could find out how to get it to stop updating to Quantum...whatever that is. I'm on version 56, by the way.

I THINK I've got it back to where I want it, but I can't figure out how to sort the bookmarks by date added in the sidebar. I can do it in the full bookmark menu, but not in the sidebar....which is what I use to do the bookmarks. Also, the star in the address bar is gone now...for some reason and I can't figure out how to get it back.

ANOTHER also....when firefox starts, it shows the home page as a tab. I don't like this. How do I fix it ?
Think about this. Once bread becomes toast, you can't make it back into bread.

Using a version of Firefox as obsolete as 56 means running with a browser that has unresolved security issues. Quantum is still Firefox but with changes, including new extension requirements that may make legacy extensions unusable.
If you won't move up to a current release version (currently 62), you may want to consider switching to the ESR version of Firefox -- ... elease-esr

(Current ESR, 60, is still Quantum, so Legacy extensions are dead there too.)
