Thanks for your thoughts, was very ticked-off last night when I wrote that. I’m using LinuxMint now on a Mac. Having to learn command line stuff all over again has been hit an miss.
I’ve used PCs for 30 years, but just don’t have the flare for programming. I was okay with DOS, but that is nothing compared with command line Linux for getting things right moving around-in and manipulating the operating system.
The dropdown toolbar I was referring to is usually just under the menu bar, it would be the bar that says 'File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Window, Help (or something like that). They could have at least left-in a choice in settings giving one the option of showing or hiding it.
I may give it another try, just really didn’t like the forced update, and/or certainly don’t remember being prompted to agree to an update. I don’t need my experienced ‘improved’, I just need my stuff to be there and work so I can do what I need to do and go about my day.
We’ll see - it’s not like there’s a world of great browsers out there, all of them are basically glorified spyware for government or business or both (at this point there’s not much difference between the two).
