    So if we Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows, does that mean we don't need HTTPS Everywhere extension any more?

    Correct IMO. While I'm still running HTTPS Everywhere in the stable version, the Beta version seems to work just as good without the extension.

    Thanks JR. I'll give it a run like that for a few weeks and see how things go. I suspect I'll have to make exceptions for my router login URLs.

    The Computer World article mentions a YouTube video but I couldn't find a link to the video in the article.

    In the same article, someone called Selena Deckelmann is quoted as saying "... We've been asking ourselves, 'What can the browser do to help people navigate today's Internet?' We're starting to experiment with suggestions that help people find items from their history, places they frequently visit and web content most relevant to them." but there's no link to that source either.

    April 26, I wrote,
    I use Firefox' HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows ever since and I think it works great.

    Firefox' HTTPS-Only Mode recognizes my non-https router login URL and doesn't try to change it to HTTPS.

    Click the lock and set to 'never'.

    Btw, those who have proton disabled run into trouble in settings now. A bug ticket is set to wontfix. You need to work on prefs.js or create a new profile.

    Well, the article did say that the video was "vague, a marketing spiel, and a head-in-the-sand refusal to acknowledge feedback from users" so it's hard to find any info. However, here's that video:

    This is exactly what I think about Mozilla, it's not a browser for power users anymore, unless you are willing to install tons of extensions for stuff that I consider to be basic features. Plus I wonder if their new plans are going to be good for your privacy, probably not.

    Thanks guys. So far no issue. It wasn't easy at first to disable HTTPS Everywhere but I didn't have to whitelist my ISPs router login URL [192.168.0.1]. I shall see with my Netgear next time I use it.

    Cheers,
    K

    Finally I found a solution to hide the useless Recent bookmarks menu using a .css file:

    because it might be wrong? its 1 year old, meanwhile proton exists and some things changed

    browser tools (ctrl+****+alt+i) told me
    Code:
    #toolbar-menubar #bookmarksMenuPopup menu.menu-iconic.bookmark-item:nth-of-type(4)
