One thing I forgot to say that was strange and out of place, when NoScripts displayed update page, it had a message to update to 5.1.2, that I was on 5.1.1 and the reason was that most likely most current version was not on Mozilla.

However, when I checked version, I really was on 5.1.2 of NoScripts.

Noticed yesterday that just hovering the mouse arrow over the update caused the icon to disappear from the add-on bar. it reappeared as soon as you moved the arrow off of it.

This happened on both Win 8.1 Home 64 & 7 Home 32 with FF 56.0.

The fix worked on 7, have yet to apply it to 8.1

I had it yesterday. I'm back to 5.1.1. for now.
The only similarity from the extensions of the people seems to be Noscript.
A few weeks earlyer i had the same problem with uBlock origin.
There I also went back to the previous version.

My last update caused the icon to disappear and I cannot get signed into any of the sites that I need or want to.

I had firefox v 56.0 when NoScript updated to 5.1.2 and the icon disappeared. Then firefox updated to 56.0.1 and the noscrirpt icon was back. I did not take any manual steps my self.

Had problem with Firefox 56.0 (64-bit) Windows 10. Was a simple fix.

Go to Firefox tools > addons > NoScript Options > appearance tab > select "show" status bar label > restart firefox.
