Well, you can download and install Firefox 56, then disable updates until Mozilla takes their reality pill, or until you find a replacement.

reverting to old versions of Firefox can produce problems (as far as I can read in some FAQ by mozilla). Can anybody from Mozilla please explain us a most secure way about how to do this downgrading, without damaging the old "profile"? Thank you!

Well, I'm not from Mozilla, but I had to revert from Quantum by istalling version 56 over, three times in a row (before I realized I had to uninstall Mozilla Maintenance Service for the downgrade to finally stick). I haven't lost any information from my profile. If you're worried, you can find your profile in %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles folder and make a backup copy of it.

I have autism and half a dozen other neurological and endocrine health problems and because of autism's effects the web is unusable to me without ad blockers and script blockers to cut down stimulation coming from web pages. Quickly changing GIF are the spawn of Satan and create actual physical stress effects. Quantum update seems to have no functional script blocker add ons at the moment. That is unacceptable. Totally unacceptable. Absolutely unacceptable. --> for me the necessity of using ad blockers and strong script blockers is NOT negotiable.

And because of the physical health problems I need something easy on my eyes, Walnut suited that perfectly as it happened in all windows and menus. This current look is too harsh. I should look in to financially supporting the Walnut developer after finding out whether having such a thing is even possible in the new browser programming. See, that's the thing with developing new computer stuff, you have to take in to account ten thousand (and likely 100% contradictory) things like my situation which you have no way to know they even exist. {I was a bit dyslexic in the 3rd and 4th grade years and now I'm wondering whether topic should be Hello or Ohell How can I take away Firefox Quantum. }

Until script blockers for Quantum become available think I'm going to switch most of my usage to a browser which currently has them available.
