I use the update checker from file hippo last night and that suggests the latest version is 56,, so maybe others are confused also.
Where can I ..
Change the update channel

Um BTW, V 56 of Firefox is in beta as of Friday. 56.1. I wouldn't say
it's broken till you or other beta testers ahem test it.

If you use the command control I to open the bookmarks search field,
NVDA automatically treats it as though it is in forms mode. I don't
know if it is, but it lets you type into the edit field. if you
simply issue control/ I again, the field should close and you will be
back in the general browser. Alt b does the same thing now, it
toggles the search interface on and off. Unless you are describing
some other behavior, that is the behavior I've seen in the latest
update available from Firefox now in the about dialog. As I said, in
the update I have. alt b now duplicates the action of control I when
you hold alt and type b while doing so./

/Also, if people don't know how to use the control I book marks search
interface, that is one of the biggest advantages of Firefox unless you
start talking about specialized add ons some people may really like./

/If you issue the command control I and type a word or more than one
word, then tab once, you will see one or more book marks. All folders
are searched so you don't have to worry about where the book mark is./

/I have a number of New York Times book marks. I don't want to bother
organizing the order of book marks in the book marks menu. I simply
type something to show me the result I want efficiently. There is a
book mark that is titled Today's Paper. I don't type all that. I
type apostrophe s then I space than I type pap as follows:/

/'s pap/

/That's all I have to do. I tab once, I down arrow to select the only
result, and I press enter. /

/I often use the menu if book marks are convenient to get to by
qquickly arrowing to them or with first letter navigation. But anyone
with more than a small number of book marks knows how limited these
methods are to get to a lot of the book marks in the menu which aren't
conveniently located to be moved to in these ways./

/Also, after you press enter and are taken to the page, you can toggle
off the interface with control I. You will be taken to the page and
you won't know the interface is still opened. It doesn't
automatically close and it doesn't get in the way of the page. But
it's good to close it to reduce clutter when you move around the
firefox interface and so that you won't have the annoying situation of
intending to open the search feature with control I and have nothing
appear to happen. If nothing appears to happen, that's very likely
because you forgot to close it and you have just closed it now./

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.

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?
