Thanks. Looks like I'll be updating my ESR.

A very fitting song, since it was first sung by Doris Day (1956 in the movie The man who knew too much) who died yesterday.

Blake Shelton
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
And may you stay forever young
May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
And may you stay
Forever young
Forever young
Forever young
May you stay forever young
May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
And may you stay forever young
Forever young
Forever young
May you stay forever young
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
May you stay forever young

Here you go Dr M
Alphaville lyrics:
Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while,
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies.
Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst,
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We don't have the power, but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music's for the sad man.

Can you imagine when this race is won?
Turn our golden the faces into the sun,
Praising our leaders, we're getting in tune
The music's played by the, the madman.

Forever young,
I want to be forever young.
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever, and ever

Forever young,
I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever young.

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later they all will be gone
Why don't they stay young?

It's so hard to get old without a cause
I don't want to perish like a fading horse
Youth's like diamonds in the sun,
And diamonds are forever

So many adventures given up today,
So many songs we forgot to play.
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
Oh let it come true.

Forever young,
I want to be forever young.
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever, and ever?

Forever young,
I want to be forever young.
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever, and ever?

Forever young
I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever youngWriter/s: BOB DYLAN, ROD STEWART, K SAVIGAR, JIM CREGAN

The android version of FF has also been updated to 66.0.5.
I assume if you run FF on an iPhone/pad or in linux, it has been updated.

I'm with you, Pete, on the amazing amounts of ads on legitimate sites!
My android tablet is showing me ads I've never seen. I had to resort to using a different browser to cut down on the ads.

I finally found an about:config tweak that will help until Mozilla loads 66.0.4 for android on googleplay.
I found the ftp site for mobile browsers earlier but didn't have a clue which version to download. I was afraid I'd break something to I searched for another fix.

Don't waste time trying to download a new addon. Apparently that is also broken.
https://github.com/mozilla/addons/issues/978

So I'll wait until Mozilla figures out how to fix it and I can get my addons working again.

Interesting link ky331. My normal browser is Palemoon but I fire up FF ESR daily to do online jigsaw puzzles. Last night in the middle of a puzzle, I get a yellow notice in the browser below my bookmarks toolbar that one of my addons is unsupported and will be disabled. I opened the addons. It appears that 5 of my formerly working addons have been disabled including noscript and uBlockOrigin!

One of the posts here has the addons that are affected

When I saw that yesterday and it said to remove all USB devices, I had to dig deeper. Most computers today have USB keyboards and mice and if you had to remove them, that wouldn't work.

Then I discovered it is USB storage devices. Phew.

I still have an extremely old version on our 4 Windows 7 computers. I changed something on my husband's desktop computer and it alerted me that a change had been made to some startup item so it is "monitoring".

Banks are just as bad with those meaningless papers about "what we do with your information".

Then there is this: We renewed a CD at a bank that was acquired by another bank. Because there are so many more branches and people might not know us so they asked us to pick 3 security questions. I can't believe they are still using "what is your mother's maiden name?". Seriously??? How insecure can you get. I didn't pick that and with the questions I picked, I didn't give answers you'd find on the internet. (No one said I had to give true answers to stupid questions. As long as I wrote down the "answers" I gave, I should be fine to prove who I am in case they don't trust my driver's license and another form of ID.)

I have to watch what I plant because the deer eat almost everything.
We've lived in our home for 30 years and this is the first time that the deer have completely eaten all the ivy. We have ivy planted on the banks at the front of the house. Now it is just a mass of roots. Sad. I won't plant more because they will just eat it.

I have to search for something they won't eat. At least my daffodils are safe. I do have lots of bright yellow flowers in my garden.

I buy refurbed computers and haven't had a problem.

That should work. I've never used a "toaster".
I have to image 4 computers so moving a portable hard drive around is easier for my needs.
