I've stuck with Firefox through the great years. Now it seems like it has turned into a complete mess.

Some of its best add-ons have been rendered unuseable. My two favorites, LastPass and NoSquint: down the drain.

This obnoxious yellow strip under the titles pops up several times each session to say a script keeps running. All in all, it has turned into a nightmare experience.
Please, can I have my old reliable browser back?

That yellow strip is likely an indication that one of the previously installed extensions is no longer compatible. It's up to the authors of those favorite extensions to update them for compatibility with the latest versions of Firefox. You could run Firefox in Mozilla Safe Mode ( http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode ) to test that theory.

Hi Wonderful1,
Last Pass is available for the latest Firefox versions.
> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... ast%20pass
No Squint appears to be stuck at the 2017 updated version.
Reviews are not very favourable either with no response from the Dev.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/zoom-page-we/ works well for me.

While I can't argue that they killed some good add-ons, my Lastpass is up to date and working well with the most recent FF version 63.03.

I do miss TabMixPlus

I, used to use LastPass, but had issues about it automatically login, so, I now use StickyPassword, and am so glad I switched, because I’m having no issues whatsoever. 8-)

I take it that that StickyPassword is not an extension?... but an app to install?
