@polonus,

I did uninstall Firefox but might install it again sometime today.  I too like the Brave Browser and use it every day.

@ -midnight,

Another thing is, that could be just  because of that corrupted file, to uninstall your firefox,
and reinstall the browser with a complete fresh install. That may finally cure it.

I personally think you will be overtly very, very happy with Brave, as it comes closest to your personal likings and views.
Also the lay-out of the browser is gorgeous and a very one-way of using it.

It impressed me a lot both in the laptop version as the Android one. I like iridium a lot, but have Brave as well on that same machine and my android device and on both the computer and mobile phone of my dear spouse.

Instead of Brave, why not simply use the  Avast SafeZone Browser ???  or, Opera with VPN enabled ???

Is it me, but is Brave somewhat like a cross between Vivaldi and Firefox?
I don't have Brave installed and was just wondering. Yeah, I know Vivaldi and
Firefox use two completely different codes and engines, but I'm curious. Not curious
enough to install it though.

@ -midnight....Thanks for starting this thread.  ;)

@polonus,

I installed the latest version of Firefox and so far my add-ons and extensions are still there.

@bob3160

I do use the SafeZone Browser every day to access the forum.  I've tried Opera but really didn't like it.

@Para-Noid,

I really like the Brave Browser.  I had never heard of it until polonus sent me a link.

You're welcome.  I was almost afraid to start this thread. :)

@Para-Noid,

Look here for the benchmark test: http://www.networkworld.com/article/3030134/microsoft-subnet/benchmark-tests-brave-browser-ad-blocker-chrome-firefox-ie-11.html

Some do not like the browser, because of the controversial orthodox christian views held by the main browser-developer, Brendan Eich.

That that is nothing new for a liberal Western society, that is being "sung loose" of G*d Allmighty constantly nowadays,
might not surprise us at all.  :D

This however does not have anything to do whatsoever with the fact that the man is/remains a very apt and a professional browser designer.

So this controversy should never have been brought into the discussion.

Anyway it costed him his job as Mozilla CEO, as he rather kept to his views based on the Scriptures,
and they thought that was stepping a line in a situation where you cannot hold a minority view, nor even defend it.
Sad days for America really (and for Eurrope as well).

All this said and done, Brave is a good, swift, browser, secure and adfree as well.

@ -midnight

Never be afraid to post anthing however trivial it may be, that you may have on your digital chest  ;D,
while 'old' polonus is still around.

What does that have to do with the operation or effectiveness of the browser ???

@bob3160 and Para-Noid,

Nothing, zilch, nic, nichts, niets, nada - as I stated there, but as they could not have anything else to hold out against him,
they started to personally attack the developer, withstanding his excellent track record here: https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brendan_Eich

But I mentioned this nasty Mozilla controversy, because with choice of browsers all sort of non-arguments can enter the bargain, eh I mean discussion based on emotions rather than facts.

However I think that Brendan Eich has to redo partly his main invention, javascript,  a bit as seen to the insecurities of that language, we have to struggle against now everyday. But he and we did not know that back in 1995.

Hi bob3160,

You must see this totally apart from a larger picture, Has nothing to do with what you say.
It was long before that. But it touched what we discussed - browsers.

Nothing to do with what you say, the controversy was over a browser developer,
namely at Mozilla's whether the man could stay as a Mozilla CEO, and he could not.

It was a personal attack by browser people on another browser man, their developer and CEO.

How can you say that that has nothing to do with browsers?

It is a non-argument, I agree, it should have had nothing to do with browsers or his functioning as a CEO,
but as they found he stepped the line he went and then started his Brave company.

Else we would not have had Brave browser at all. So it was very important in that respect.

After reinstalling the latest version of Firefox once again my add-ons are gone and I have only 2 extensions.  The add-ons were there before I restarted Firefox.

I'm going to uninstall it and not install it again.

Did nobody tell you, that those 2 of your screenshot don't harmonize? You better deinstall McAfee!

I know, but inspite of that: it conflicts with Avast. It's your choice!
