Firefox just updated itself on my Computer, and dulled down

I'm not happy with improvements to Firefox..

I refused the latest.

I doubt Firefox did that

Seems you have other problems.

What do you mean, the "3rd logo of Google Chrome"? Google Chrome is Google's own browser. You shouldn't have 3 Google Chrome shortcut icons on your Desktop.

My wife's laptop has FF, and the other day

I did the suggested upgrade. Don't see any operational difference; is the security issue that great?

Thanks for noticing, Roger. Yep, 3d logo, it looked shiny

and raised with a nice little highlight on the blue centre. Now it's flat and uninteresting. I think FF was jealous because all previous FF updates haven't changed my icons on my desktop, this one did, but only the one. Google Chrome works just fine. I don't use it that much, but it's useful to have a separate browser to open so you can keep track of what is open where without running your cursor over the Logo in the bottom bar.

Bad thing about Google Chrome is that you have to clear the history manually whereas when you set the defaults on FF it does it automatically.

of history detritus, the glossy logo is now back. The best you can say about computers is that they're enigmatic, and you never know what they're going to do next.

I think we had that in a thread a few years ago.

Since all our memories are going, it's good to get a refresher.

Ummm .... What was the question? Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
