Just installed 66.0.2 (64 bit) and my security seems to be compromised
Just after installing Firefox Quantum v66.0.2 (64 bit), I am now seeing tens of items being blocked by Ghostery, NoScript and UBlock, items I have not seen being blocked in the past. Is this new version of Firefox subject to being immediately hijacked as soon as it is updated? Is there now something different in Firefox's security for this new version? I have checked ALL of my Firefox settings and all settings are set just as I want them to be set, with this exception: I seem to have many more certificates than I really need and many of them appear to be from countries other than the US. Would I encounter problems if I just deleted all the current certificates in order to update the required certificates? Thank you, Rusty
