    Firefox iOS got updated with their new photon styling. It also uses Focus' block lists so I guess I will use it now.

    For those with Firefox 57.0 who were (like me) tinkering with processCount integer via about:config and now don't have neither AdBlock Plus icon in toolbar menu or/and Option button for AdBlock Plus in Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions menu + on the top of that AdBlock is completely unfunctional make sure to via about:config revert this integer: dom.ipc.processCount.extension ..to default value: 1

    After that close or restart Firefox and AdBlock Plus is there again on toolbar, same as Option for it, enter Option menu and configure filters as you wish.

    Other three integers with processCount in their names set as you wish, most important one: dom.ipc.processCount ...definitely likes higher values, lets say number of cores/threads your CPU has, I think everybody here already are aware of this.

    As always, thanks for the links, but NoScript still won't run on Firefox Quantum.

    Yep, out of some 11 - 14 Add-ons here on my side total of 4 are fully working so far after switching to Firefox 57.0, other 2/3 of Add-ons I was using are on hold for now in non-functional legacy extensions group. Nothing to be panicked about, although I miss additional TabMixPlus options and Classic Theme Restorer options for full customization but guess it'll pass few days, week or two maybe for most of well known Add-ons and devs are going to rewrite/update those to meet WebExtensions standards. Guess there are still some workarounds to enable legacy Add-ons on Firefox 57 (hate to bother, does extensions.legacy.enabled ...via: about:config ...works in FF57?) but this time I'm not gonna mess with it, I'll wait as long as it should for all needed Add-ons to be updated.

    So far speed and everything else about Firefox Quantum is really impressive if you ask me, no problems so far.

    No way to enable legacy addons now afaik, I was using it for multiprocess & legacy in FF56 but it didn't work with 57

    I went from over a dozen addons to 6 and tbh I don't miss the others, only one I hope gets updated was an image rehoster addon that allowed me to right click any image on any site and rehost it to imgur having the new URL copied to clip in the process, was handy for making new build threads etc
