Hi, Watch out for changes in Firefox. It updated to version 89 yesterday on my PC. (WIN10/64) It messed up the bookmarks, page sizes , fonts and menus. There is a temporary fix. go to about:config and enter browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled change the setting from true to false. Unfortunately they say it is a developer temporary mod and will go away in two months. The only other solution they have is to re-load version 88 and tell it not to auto update. Not a great solution IMO. I additionally tried Chrome and it did behave OK, just I don't like to have to change after many years of Firefox.

Good Listening

Thanks for the heads up. Most of my machines are running Linux now and the Firefox "upgrade" hasn't trickled over from Windows yet. But it generally doesn't take long.

For all its issues, Firefox has a lot of nice addons and ad blockers. Hopefully the developers can clean this mess up soon.
