The main problems with it for me is that the refresh button has disappeared, so now I have to click on the url bar and hit enter. I do this a lot. That or try and find the f5 button, to press alt-f5.

For me it didn't disappear. It was just moved to the left, next to the button showing the cozy house.

I noticed when this one installed that they called it faster than the prior version. So far I'm not seeing much difference, except when pages have trouble loading. That bouncing dot gets irritating fast.

Refresh button is now to the left by the forward and backwards button.

There was no sign of DownThemAll, my gallery image downloader app, becoming compatible with this new version. I guess any Firefox app will require substantial rework if not complete redesign to remain useable with this Quantum thing. So I ended up rolling back to the previous Firefox version (ver 56.02) and now everything works fine again. I intend to stick with it for as long as this laptop lives. Kinda funny though. Normally, when something is called a quantum leap is it normally assumed to be forward...

Thanks. I somehow totally missed that it was there.  ::)

Btw, thanks Sara for the information on how to change the tab colours. I did that and have the pastel stripey ones now.
