You can disable the new Preferences UI in 'about:config' if you want to :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type and look for the preference : browser.preferences.useOldOrganization and set its value to true

hello, can you try to replicate this behaviour when you launch firefox in safe mode once? if not, maybe an addon is interfering here...

Apologies, i didn't mentioned this. Problem is also in safe mode present. It seems really something of Firefox itself

Thanks Enigma for providing solution, all options are back visible/selectable. Seems like a bug to me in the new update

I'm glad you got things back to normal   ! It's not a bug though : it's one of the changes that some users may like and others won't .....

Small remark, if it's not a bug how can users lookup their passwords / saved logins in the new UI ? I was not able to do so, with the trick from you it worked. I searched in the new UI but was not able to find a saved password/list

Good question  ! Guess users are expected to check what's new with each new release, like here : https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/56.0/releasenotes/ I've already suggested to Admin that users should see a banner, warning them / telling them about changes that come with new releases.

Just in case you want to file a bug report : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/

You would normally be able to use the search bar on the about:preferences page to locate specific settings. Maybe you had some weird preference settings that caused the Security tab to crash.

Maybe check the Browser Console for error messages.
