Screenshot feature in version 56
Hmm, they claim it's new in Firefox Quantum, i.e. version 57, at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/

It's in Firefox 56, but it appears on the main toolbar rather than in a separate drop-down. I think they didn't fully "launch" the feature until 57, maybe?
I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

    Firefox version?
    Windows version?
    have you tried the previous version to see if the issue goes away?


    Seems to have resolved itself.Took 48 hours to do so. Thanks

    Mark.

    My main loss was Noscript
    NoScript 10 now released. FF 57 compatible.

    I downloaded version 1.2.8 "'Classic' css tweaks for Firefox 57+" from this page https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/releases/ but that is a week old now. I see they are up to 1.3.4 so I am going to update now.

    The NoScript UI is changed; no more right-click menu, you have to click the NoScript icon on the toolbat but it's all there.

    Okay, bit the bullet and upgraded to 57. First I downloaded Firefox Portable and ran it along side Firefox 56 to get used to it. Used the css tweaks mentioned above to get it as close to how I like as possible. Still miss the status bar, tab mix plus, classic theme restorer, a reload extension for the menu, the ability to customize menus, etc. Still, not as bad as I feared and it most definitely is faster.  I've attached a screenshot of my modified version if anyone is interested.

    With the recent update- I presume 60.0.1- I found the "Classic Theme" changes via the chrome folder no longer worked; with it in place the display is rather indescribably glitched out (elements seem to be at seemingly arbitrary positions, move around when moused over weirdly- etc.

    I tried installing it from the github instructions all over with a fresh setup of Firefox 60.0.1 but was unable to get it to cooperate.

    Frankly I would have just shrugged and just gone with the "default" theme/visuals, but I greatly prefer my main browser to have tabs on the bottom of the toolbar area (eg right above the content). Since after a bunch of screwing around I couldn't get that seemingly simple customization to work, I decided to try a fork of Firefox, and settled on Waterfox. Another reason to switch was because some of the recent changes they have been making to the browser seem to have a bit of a "dark design" to them; adding advertisements to the new tab page, for example, and then removing the ability to change it to point at a specific URL, is one good example of this- You have to install an add-on to change the page loaded by the new tab.

    I ended up "switching" my primary browser to Waterfox, which is based on Firefox 56 currently- as a result, the ClassicThemeRestorer add-on itself still functions so I don't have to fiddle with the chrome folder at all. Of course, I still have Firefox 60 itself installed- I haven't run off into the sunset swearing or anything.

    Although I had been a Firefox loyalist for years, over the past few months I have found myself using Google Chrome for at first just the odd page, but now I use it for everything.

    Hmm - nothing broke on my end - the css tweaks are still in place on all of my systems.

    Yes, it's still intact on one of my systems with the latest release as well. Not really sure what happened but tried all sorts of things to try to fix the ones that were broken, disabling all plugins/extensions, copying the css tweaks/chrome folder from the working system's firefox profile to one that was goofy, etc.
