Re: Firefox has updated to 56 and its broken

It asked me this morning and I let it do it, and the result was that on opening, with no keyboard input, a panel comes up about bookmarks, but its not an html screen so no virtual buffers.
Slowly hitting tab eventually ends up in the browse mode on the page you set up as start. However, whereas the previous 54 and 55 versions always go into focus mode if this page is a search engine, in 56 this does not occur, leaving you to figure out if its shifte or e to get to that field, then press enter to get into it. Its all very inconvenient. I have never ever seen this weird bookmark panel before. Its most certainly not the bookmark list or toolbar as we have had previously, and indeed as I say, no keyboard entry is needed to initiate it, its just there on start up.
I got so annoyed in trying to find a place to put it back as it was, I decided life was too short and put in 54 as this is the last executable archive I had.

Where have people got v56 from, because mine is 55.0.2.

I just installed 54 over it and its back as it was. Can anyone shed some
light on the new weird bookmarks panel that seems to be there by default?

It just did this and now it opens in some kind of bookmark panel.
One has to tab to find the actual displayed page. I am thinking this is a Firefox bug. Toolbar for bookmarks is definitely off.

Anyone else noticed this?
