LET'S KICK ASS!!!!!!
I have now buckled-in to Chrome as Rachel suggested, and I grudgingly admit that it not only fixed the problem, but it is twice as quick as the previous browser.
Late last year, Grandson set up Chrome for me, probably thinking that I couldn't do it myself, but I sort of resented him barging in, not even giving me an opportunity to set my own passwords, etc, so I scrapped it. Once again, the young jump to conclusions about the effect of age on the ability to handle I.T. believing what the media tells them when it says that they are all born naturals who leave us old people behind in the technology stakes. Bollocks.
The other thing about Chrome - and every other browser alternative - is that it is set-up to be the most efficient information-gathering machine possible. When the geeks say that they are 'improving our experience', what they really mean is that they are improving their database on us. There really is no point in having a fake name as far as they are concerned - they know who I really am. What they don't know is what I had for breakfast, so they have to keep asking me that. This is called a 'survey', and it is to improve my breakfast experience. Honest.
Did you hear Sarah Palin's 'speech' in support of Trump this morning? The most frightening aspect is that he is actually supposed to be the front-runner right now.
