    Default Was pretty happy to use Microsoft Edge until today ........

    .........when I seem to have been hijacked! Until now, tabs showed along the top, however, with no warning whatsoever, they now appear down the left. That would not
    really be much of a problem, except the whole setup is not now so intuitive. Have just downloaded M/S Chrome, which seems disturbingly similar, to what I have described
    ie, sparse, lacking in detail and obvious choices! Is there no escape? Am I doomed??
    Affinity Photo 1.8.5 (marvellous)
    Lightroom 6

    Firefox, Chrome or Edge....up to you.
    Are you using NOD32? I would, it was very good at warning you about dodgy websites......

    I did try once I went to Linux, went to a known bad page and let the hijacker try....all it was able to do was try....even though the browser is still the weak point on Linux....
    But I always used NOD before and paid attention to it's warnings...
