Novice here guys/gals so patience please. Didn't see where to attach the png in the initial question area. Hope this screenshot helps....

The only difference in software, download is I had tried the LastPass program (now deleted) but can't see that would effect things. Not 100% sure.

Any ideas/response is appreciated.

It you use a custom theme then try the default theme.
