Thanks. That worked. Was on an old 32bit system that I only use occasionally running 17.1 MATE.

Re: Adblocker

I am trying uBlock Origin right now. I went to cnet (aka scourge of the Internet) it is consuming a lot less of the CPU. It was running the CPU at a solid 100% under Adblocker Plus. It still consumes too much. Will see how it goes.

Adblocker

Re: Add-ons_Won't_Re-enable

Before I follow your instructions I want to say that "Old Firefox Data" folder appears on the desktop. Does that affect how I will proceed?

It contains 2 folders:
Mwad0hks.default
o6y8rtod.default-1486575351247

Re: Add-ons_Won't_Re-enable

As far as I understood your post, you seemed to have selected to refresh. If you click this you get at first a sub dialog which tells you, that the add-ons and adjustments get removed and that the browser settings get restored to their defaults. I did not get a sub dialog. This is not the safe mode...
