  1. Not a bother at all - sometimes it takes a while to get a response, but the folks here are going to be both glad that you got it solved, and curious as to what may have caused the issue in the first place. At any rate, thanks for at least coming back and posting not only the fact that you had solved the issue, but also how you did so.
  2. Last I checked, MalwareBytes, the AV product, should not be messing with network stuff. I just recently installed it again for the umpteenth time. Did you perhaps instead get the MalwareBytes Privacy VPN instead?
  3. I'm using Cosmos myself. For me, it has the right balance of reducing large white spaces and still a bit of color pop for a lot of different things.
  4. I know this year has been a very trying one for all of us around the globe. So, here's to spreading some holiday cheer by wishing everyone here a very Merry Christmas! Stay safe!
  5. Thanks for this. I also didn't change anything in advanced settings but I *had* enabled pen testing setting when this error started occurring with all my PowerPoint slides stored in OneDrive. I've gone back and verified - simply enabling that Penetration testing setting immediately causes a recurrence of the issue with my PowerPoints, and disabling that setting causes the issue to regress back to normal. Thanks for paying careful attention to that - I didn't think that there would be a link and did not notice the change after attempting to reset advanced setting would change anything outside of the advanced settings area.
  6. Welcome, @GaryBaley, to the forums! Sorry you experienced the issue, but glad you were able to get it resolved.
  7. Verified on work laptop with pages that were still exhibiting the issue that I did not reload (for further testing) as well as in old profile on my desktop - I cannot make it happen anymore. Marked TetonBob's reply as answer.
  8. Thanks for the heads up - my desktop installed that version this morning already. I'm still using the new profile, so I'll go back and try the old one in a few minutes.
  9. After reboot everything on the laptop still works perfectly fine. I told MB BG to go ahead to the NewEgg sites it was blocking, without marking them as 'safe' and the prompt did not appear again after reboot either.
  10. So far. I said that the cache clearing was optional, but if I closed the browser and opened it again, the error occurred again, so I did a cache clear and that seemed to fix it permanently. I'll test more and report back.
  11. A fix that seems to work is the following: Turn off web protection. (Optional) Clear your Firefox cache (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-clear-firefox-cache ) Reload the page(s) with the issue After that you can turn on web protection and it should be fine. HTH
  12. Yup - I posted about it and submitted logs - TetonBob said they are now investigating.
  13. I created a new profile on my desktop and it doesn't occur there. On my laptop, disabling web protection and re-loading all pages seems to have fixed it, except now I'm getting a Browser Guard popup block on New Egg pages - I think that is unrelated, though.
  14. Q: Can you ask if they reverted the setting where using the "Mark all forums" link sent you back to the main forums page, or did that setting simply revert on the install of 4.5.3? Because I, for one, found that extremely helpful, since I use the notification bell to find posts I need to look at....
