I am still using FF52. For a few days now I have noticed that when I open Google it looked strange. I could not pinpoint why and just thought that they had experimented with a new design. I then opened Waterfox and Google looked normal. FF52 https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51822100503_a9b05e3c6b_w.jpg

Can I get FF52 to make google look normal again?

You have to change the User Agent to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0

Thanks TyDraniu,

I used FF56.0.2. What is missing in FF52 that it suddenly does work anymore. In FF56 I get the warning that some extensions cannot be verified and FF56 will not run them. Can I get round this?

It's due to certificate, so I really don't think so. Why don't you use a recent version?
