Some plugins disappeared, some no longer work the way they did (meaning they now work worse), NoScript freaked me out when I saw what happened to it. And in general, with each new release FF seems to be getting worse and worse: more dumbed down while at the same time being bloated with "features" like tracking, telemetry, promotions, social, etc.

Anyway, thanks for the link.
