Yeah I had to roll it back for that very reason (NoScript being removed from my hotbar).

Yeah, the NoScript site still says the new version will be ready by the time 57 comes out, but nope!
Mobile version seems OK.
Desktop version locks up every single time I try to open the menu. Seriously. (Win7, at work.)

And when I try to autoscroll. Super.
Going to try rebooting. If that doesn't fix, I guess it's back to the ESR version. (That's v52. You probably don't want to stick with 56, because it won't be getting any more security updates.)

Ha haaa I was so very prepared for this.

Back to ESR for now. Won't plan on updating on my desktop or laptop at home (because I use NoScript on both). Might try on the HTPC.
Not seeing anyone else reporting my issue yet. I'll keep an eye out; it's still a brand new release.
Tried rebooting, tried uninstalling and reinstalling, tried deleting my profile (backed up first, of course). Issue persisted until I rolled back.

I had to turn off the update notification function because it was badgering me to update every time I opened a new tab, plus some extra random times on top of that.
OKAY MOZILLA, I THINK I GET IT.

Again, you might want to install the ESR. It'll continue to get security updates but won't prompt you to upgrade to a non-ESR version.
The differences between v52 and 56 are mostly superficial. In the old days, they would have been minor version bumps; Chrome kind of fucked up browser versioning for everybody.

There's also Basilisk
, a fork of Firefox 56.
