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
Bruce

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.

I don't remember the last time I used Firefox. I have been using Google Chrome for years now and I don't feel comfortable using any other browser.

Firefox, I didn't even know that was still around. I use Google Chrome too. I also use Microsoft Edge. I'm not real fond of that one. It's been years since I used Firefox. I'm not even sure why I stopped using it.

Hi Everyone....it is still around and my choice to use as it does what I want. Chrome isn't bad, but not to my liking as much.

Good Listening
