    Each provide some protection or ad blocking. You don’t NEED any of them, but they can provide a more secure browsing experience. I thought we had already been thru this.

    I would keep all four extensions, Bill.

    They are needed for Security and privacy.

    Thanks, Cindy. I think I will. One I found seeems to block something but I find I can just switch it off, do my thing, switch it on and all is fine. Never really looked at these
    things before.

    Tony, I do recall and I understand. Just frustated at failures. I thought replied but guess I did not click POST.
