Thanks but I'll not check for updates this instant. I wait for it to get pushed to my machine in the next few days as by then it will probably be up to v67.0.1 or maybe .2 or even .3 :evilgrin:

Thanks, Hans.

The release notes state that "Users can block known cryptominers and fingerprinters in the Custom settings..." What are fingerprinters?

I'm taking drugs . . . powerful drugs . . . to control severe back pain caused by disks impinging the sciatic nerve; so . . . consider this when reading this post, please.

This morning when I saw that Firefox 67.0 was released I scanned the release notes then allowed Firefox to update. I thought I saw a new feature that puts passwords in a lockbox which I interpreted to be something like Roboform or KeePass. I must admit that I passed over it for later consideration; however, now that it's later and my drug-induced fog is not so thick, I cannot find any information on this new feature.

Shall I put this down to big pharma and my inability to withstand level 15 pain?

You're not deluded. In the "What's new" page, there is a link to Password Manager - Remember, delete, change and import saved passwords in Firefox
