Alternatively, you can switch to FF 52ESR and keep your old extensions till next summer, when many of the extensions will have been ported to the new FF.
I REALLY miss ReminderFox and the folks who made it said they will not do a new version. Not worth it.
Google Calendar was recommended as a replacement. It's not even close.

The Moz utility for substituting other extensions is poorly done, written by Mozilla, of course. But if you post in one of the forums, someone might give you a workaround. Mozillazine has far better help than the actual Moz.org site. I've been using it about 15 years.

Many of the extensions will be ported in the next few months. Meanwhile I'm using the ESR track till next summer, with my add-ons intact.

Brink--
your explanation looks like PR. If they cared about how their users use the web, they wouldn't have done away with all the extensions and changed the whole UI to a naked look. That's what makes Firefox unique among browsers. Now everyone's scrambling to get back their old look, because THAT'S how Firefoxers use the web. They want customization and they want certain conveniences at their fingertips.

I would gladly give up the extra speed, which doesn't seem necessary on my puter, to keep my 28 extensions and innumerable code tweaks in userchrome.css. And I probably will. It's likely I'll load 54 next year and stay there. I won't move to another browser because the others have NO customization.

@ RoWin7

The best I can tell Brink has not posted his opinion on this subject.
He did however post a article on the subject. Which he does on most news that may effect this forum users.

To my understanding when Brink post news it's not necessarily his opinion. It's just news for the rest of us to ponder.
I'm quite sure if Brink has a opinion and cares to share it, he will post such opinion.

This is just a news article I relayed, and did not write.

It's usually assumed that a relayed article is not one's personal opinion, and just posted for information.

Please note the source of the article.
