Speaking of Java... have been having issues with LibreOffice full version on Windows 10 - not so when using the portable app version on usb.
Do believe it's a Java related issue there as well.
Btw, with regards to LastPass, i don't use it for anything more than username and p.w., especially now that security experts know that webpages can be tricked to have LP fill in blanks for you that you can not see (bank account info. credit card etc.)!
Well, i guess i have no choice but to quit and find a job where i have permission to install plugins to a browser (when i can install a browser though, silly situation).
Silly stuffs when you're working for the government, and they have a silly IT department managing maaaany, many different branches.
@SpadarShut For me changing to the Desktop version solved the problem, you might want to click the "Home" button in the web panel after that, since Skype automatically redirects you to https://web.skype.com/en/wrongDevice page, and this URL persist in the web panel even after switching to the Desktop version.
Thank you for this. I had not heard of it, & was shocked when i read the linked article. For years WOT was always one of the first extensions i'd add to any browser. For now i have disabled it rather than removed it, & i am trying out the Avast one you mentioned. Golly but there's sneaky people about.
– saved a copy of ..\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Vivaldi\User Data to be sure
-- deinstalled Vivaldi with revo Uninstaller Pro, leaving login-folder. Thus I did not have to transfer/copy passwords, bookmarks, speeddial.
You can specify a proxy on the command line with something like this:
~$ vivaldi --proxy-server=127.0.0.1:80
I haven't tried it, though. It seems that the graphical user interface to specify a proxy in Vivaldi settings isn't ready yet. On Windows, Vivaldi can use the system proxy but it appears that that's not the case on Linux.
