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.

Firefox Quantum NoScript is out
You should all get it now because my sister was hired by Mozilla for Quantum user retention and now that its released she seems to spend all day hooked up to a computer that shocks her whenever someone stops using current release.
I mean not that I do because Firefox's thing seems to follow the Bethesda method for development, and I'm not one to wait for mods to make the browser enjoyable, but you should.

If it helps, the primary reason I don't use Firefox as my main browser currently is that it doesn't handle opening images with bad MIME types gracefully.
