I have some add-ons that use the add-on bar and that is gone. Also can't find out how to bookmark a site and save it where I want. It just sticks in bookmarks then I have to move it. Maybe I am missing something.

Did you have to do this recommendation?

No, I did not do that. I have had no problems.
I'll get back to you on the bookmarks.

Could do it the way I have always done it. Just right click somewhere on the page and select "Bookmark this page", that is still there in the context menu.
Dragging the tab still works as well. The only thing that annoyed me at all so far is I can't seem to set up an open bookmark sidebar button on the taskbar, only the drop down one. Ctrl-b still works though.

FWIW, I create Bookmarks mainly by dragging URLs out of the Address Bar and into the Bookmarks Sidebar, which gives me complete control over where they go. I've always done that.

I got mine up there yesterday.

Ctrl + D to bring up page bookmarked, then select where to save.
I have dragged & dropped for years.

That's what I wanted. Thanks. There use to be a "STAR" button that did that but it got changed.

Thanks, Mickey for the Ctl-D option.

Thanks,

I haven't customised Firefox much, so it's mostly the same for me. It may take some time for me to get used to the menu button being relocated to the right. For the time being, the noticeable changes don't concern me but don't seem necessary either.

I'm finding Firefox a little sluggish with age. Someone I know uses Chrome and it appears more responsive.
