Hi Delia

Just to tidy up a loose end, yesterday I tried the store in Firefox 57, got in with no trouble this time, and placed an order. So it seems you were right and the store has now caught up with new version.

If necessary I'd install another browser, but I like to keep things simple where possible these days. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"!

Firefox 57 seems pretty good now, and much faster than previous versions. The only thing I still can't do is save web pages to view offline, but that's not such a big deal.

That's great news for you John. Well done and thanks for the update.

I always try to have either FF, IE or Chrome as a back-up on my laptop; just so that I can try one of them if a web site doesn't work properly for some reason. I find if you phone the company they want you to test in IE, so it saves a phone call and time if I do that first! AND you know it's not Firefox's fault (or whichever) but the company being a tad tardy LOL

Hi Niels,

In the previous version, I had three lines, and much bigger icons. I had used this mode to organize my most-visited sites ... not only does that no longer work, but the old organization scheme became mostly inaccessible with the update.

Probably I shouldn't have invested so much work in a semi-controllable feature, but I couldn't resist because I liked the graphical presentation so well. Still, losing control completely was an unpleasant surprise ...

Regards,

Henning
