Update to Firefox (120.0.1) in Linux Mint blocks CNN - its the only site which appears to be blocked. I get a message telling me that configuration of the site is blocking CNN from loading, and goes on as follows.

Rather strange, since I'm using Firefox.
In general, I am thoroughly annoyed with the way the Internet experience is increasingly fouled up by various sites implementing "safety" aspects. It used to be fun, now its a crap experience. Firefox is getting bigger, slower, and infested with site 'improvements' which do absolutely nothing for me - Is it so hard to provide a simple, clean, straightforward browser without so many 'add-ons' that its grinding to a halt? Time was software was written for the users, now its clearly written to give software developers something to do. Can't you create a revolution in software and do something useful, instead of "clever"?
