What happened to the "Save and Quit" option when closing Firefox while multiple tabs are open?

The only thing I do with FF as often as open it is....close it. The "Save and Quit" option on closing Firefox is missing in version 63. Ouch.

Sometimes you want it to save your previous session and sometimes you don't. Sometimes opening Firefox and seeing a bunch of tabs open lets the person that opens it after you know that you were in the middle of something and that they shouldn't close your tabs. An "always restore previous session" setting doesn't cut it. The option to restore your previous session only works if you're the only person using the computer and you remember to do it.

The "Save and Quit" prompt in every previous version is the perfect solution. Sure, after a certain version, you had to turn it on once for each install in about:config, but lots of people did that.

Why would they remove something that many people find crucial?

Firefox 63.0 just installed and I see a tracker blocker is enabled by default. However, I will continue using Blur (by Abine) which provides tracker blocking. Will I improve performance by turning the Firefox tracker blocker off?

I also have AdBlock Plus installed with exceptions configured. Does the Firefox ad blocker offer anything that AdBlock Plus does not? It seems logical for me to turn the Firefox ad blocker off to avoid blocking sites where I wish to enable ads.

Sometimes, when I press ctrl+t, I get the tab in my tab bar, but it is not functional(clicking it does nothing, and ctrl+pgup/dwn will show the previous tab for a few presses until it gets passed the broken tab), and the only way to close Firefox afterwards is through the menu, pressing the 'x' in the corner will do nothing. I would say this happens about 50% of the time. If I use the plus(+) at the top to open a new tab it always works. I have been having this problem for atleast the past 5 versions, or more. I have tried with a new profile, and no addons loaded, and it still happens. Is this just my computer?

Sometimes stopping and then immediately restarting what I'm trying to download in Firefox three or four times gets Firefox to download the file to my OneDrive. But in this case, it doesn't. I want to overwrite the old Vivaldi 2.0 installer file in my OneDrive programs folder with the new Vivaldi 2.1 installer file (.EXE) in my OneDrive "Programs" folder. I'm glad in addition to Firefox reaching version 63.0 Stable two days ago, Vivaldi has reached version 2.1 today. Firefox 63 Stable has many bugs that are easy to notice and need fixing sooner rather than later in my experiences and opinion.

Because those are there.

I haven't looked, but.....

If there were memes related to gender or race or other "problematic" issues ..... Would those also be unavailable?

Because those are there. Downloadable on chrome, or even explorer.

You are a company that provides a browser.

Why can I not access certain things via your browser?

I used to love you guys

Cannot access passwords; cannot remake passwords

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance

As of yesterday videos would only play if asked. installed latest update today 10/26/2018 0630MDT. Now I have to manually stop the videos. I had ALREADY used the link "about:config" on previous versions & that worked. The line "media.autoplay.enabled" is already set to "false". This glitch happened as soon as I installed the latest update.
