I received information from the creator Little Spark of Firefox add on "Idle Login" that there is a bug in Firefox 56 that prevents it from working at all. The bug prevents the add on spinning star from /appearing/spinning. There must be a way to remove that bug. This is Little Sparks email reply to me""Due to a Firefox internal bug, the spinning star won't appear in FF56.

If the addon is working correctly on previous FF and not in FF56, then likely due to incompatibility with FF56. A fast solution is to use a FF version where u know the addon will work right."" I don`t intend to change Firefox version, so a fix should be done please. See my attachment that`s where the spinning star spins near the end of the location bar.

I would suggest you recontact him and see if he is going to be updating his program to run on version 57 Quantum release date Nov 14th. As it stands it will be removed from Extensions page and will not work. If he is not going to update for ver 57 then you need to move to another program that will be compatible with ver 57 and is not listed as Legacy.

No if he has a bug in his program that it does not run on ver 56 that is up to him to fix not Firefox to fix so it runs.

Not sure about the above post but seems you need to update to ver 5.6 of Little Spark and it will run.

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.
