I had a listing of sites in my previos version of Mozilla Firefox that I used often, since the update to v 57.0 scrapbook is gone entirely.
I had built a list of useful sites for my use in my scrapbook add-on. Since the update to v 57.0, all are lost the add-on no longer appears. Where is my scrapbook add-on ?

We understand that you are having some trouble with the addons you have in your profile. We expect you might be seeing disabled Legacy addons, or see that some of your addons were disable after tou updated to Firefox 57. We are happy to help.
In Firefox 57, The WebExtensions API enables addons to be more secure and better performance with your browser. Unfortunately not all of them were updated. To check if yours were see areweextensionsyet.com. We did create a feature to help you find a replacement for your favorite addon Read more here
To find replacements for your legacy add-on:
- Go to ‘about:addons,’ click on ‘Legacy Extensions,’ and
- Click the button for ‘Find a Replacement’.
If a replacement doesn’t exist or isn’t helpful, please use this utility to find recommended alternatives. If you don’t find a suitable replacement, please head over to the addons forum for help. We expect legacy add-ons to continue migrating even after Firefox 57.
There’s also a community-sourced list of alternatives on Google Docs
Due to other changes in Firefox, we can’t delay the switch to WebExtensions APIs. We’re here to help you find alternatives to your favorite extensions. To start, use this utility to find recommended alternatives. If not, please head over to our forum to ask for help.
How can I keep track of what addons are ready? We are tracking them here: http://bit.ly/2j0Anlj. If you don’t see what you were looking for, let us know and we’ll look into it.
We hope to keep Firefox safe and fast while you customize your browsing experience. Let us know if there is anything else we can help with.
Have you been using the "original" Scrapbook extension?
Unfortunately, it is not compatible with Firefox 57. Your data is still saved, but inaccessible.
I am aware of one variant of Scrapbook that works in Firefox 57:
What I don't know is how to make it "see" your accumulated data from another Scrapbook extension. Based on this discussion, that may not be ready yet: https://github.com/danny0838/webscrapbook/issues/14
I think if Scrapbook is currently an essential tool for you, you may need to use an earlier version of Firefox. The Extended Support Release of Firefox 52 will be receiving security updates through Spring 2018. There are some differences between a Firefox 55-57 profile and a Firefox 52 profile that may cause some issues with downgrading. Most of your essential data should survive the journey, but please make a backup.
