Added a new addon for firefox and it's just sat there 'verifying' for almost an hour, and it's still not installed the addon

Due to the new change to v57 of Firefox due to auto-update, some of my Legacy add-ons no longer work. I decided to change them for versions that where designed for v57. Clicking on 'add to firefox' it proceeds to download the addon and then verify it, however, this is where the problem lies. I have it stuck on the 'verifying' part for almost an hour now, without anything actually being installed. Frustrated at this, I clicked on 'cancel'. It seems to be happening with every addon that i try to replace, thus NONE of my addons have been replaced with versions compatable with V57. Is there any way I can install these without this happening?

Well, I am feeling very upset right now, but I will try to tell my issue quietly. I submitted an addon in last January called "Classical Music Only" https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/classical-music-only/ that is open source and hosted on Github. Yesterday, some irresponsible reviewer, for some reason, set my addon as rejected and removed it from the addon store without a single warning. The reason as was emailed to me, is that the code has obfuscation. The code was acutally built using Webpack and minified. But the source code is available on Github https://github.com/classicalmusiconly/classicalmusiconly-extension and you can follow the instructions and build it yourself. And you can simply compare the hash of the zip file of the contents of the dist directory with the uploaded zip file to the addon store to make sure that they are the same file. So why did this reviewer remove my addon abruptly and without a warning, that's something I don't know and I find it unprofessional and suspicious to say the least. The funny thing is that he's asking for how to generate the final XPI. XPI? really? does this guy even know what he's talking about?

I have looked to find a way to be able to run, independently, both v56 and Quantum on the same computer. The solutions I find refer to installing, in a separate folder, a portable version which apparently no longer exists as any search for a portable version on the Mozilla website finds zero results. Can this be done some other way and, if yes, how. I am loathed to give up v56 and lose all the add-ons that I rely on and for which no decent alternatives exist in Quantum. Thx

I keep waiting, but sill looking in vain for an Quantum extension that lets me toggle gif's on and off. Really miss that old extension EscapeThemGifs.

I know how to turn off all gif's in about:config, but want to toggle not totally disallow.

Thank you!
