Firefox Quantum was lautomatically downloaded to my laptop. It maybe OK but how can I get get the Start Page that was in version 56.02 back? It had the search bar in the middle of the page and useful large icons below to get downloads etc below. I have for the time being reinstalled the 56 version purely to get this very useful page back ( I am slightly visually handicapped).
