Finally got the saved login issue fixed.

When v57 pushed its way into my systems, it disabled the "[ ] Remember logins and passwords for websites" option on all three machines. Re-enabling the option worked on the HP 2000 Win10 and the Toshiba Satellite ubuntu 17.10 boxes.

However, on the Toshiba Tekra Win10 machine, I could save new login credentials, but v57 wiped all old logins. I have Firefox Sync enabled on all three machines, but for some reason the Tekra would not re-sync the logins from the other machines.

I wound up using MozBackup to write a backup off the HP and restored the Tekra's profile from that.

Firefox - Tools - AddOns - Search, etc.

I'm trying this out as we speak, on (mainly) Win10 platforms & Linux as well.

AdBlocker Ultimate is fucking awesome. It makes the Skyrim and Skyrim SE mod nexii SO much nicer to surf.

Unfortunately, nothing seems capable of blocking Pandora ads, especially on mobile anymore without a jailbreak, as far as I have been able to determine.
