This isn't an answer to your question, but have you looked at getting an anti anti-adblocker extension?

Re: Upgraded Mint today and now stuck in 800x600 mode

Well it will definitely make booting into the grub menu much easier than timing a keystroke (if it works). And it's a good learning lesson. I would just say to: 1) make a backup of the grub file before making any changes and save it in a safe place 2) don't forget to run sudo update-grub in the term...

Re: Suspend fails since Kernel 5.3.0-26

I would delete the 5.3 kernel and install the latest 4.15 as gittiest personITW suggests. The 5.0 kernel series is not a long term support kernel (support for it ends this February) whereas the 4.15 series is LTS and is supported till April 2023.

That's always a good idea. Sometimes profiles get borked even without a browser malware.

Re: Black window when booting

I'm no expert, but if that kernel works for you with Ubuntu, then it seems like something else besides the kernel caused your problem with Mint. Unless something changed from -31 to -37 that fixed the problem.
