      I am progressively disenchanted with Firefox. I just put 73.0 on my WinX 1909 machine and now FF refuses to run: crash, reload, crash, reload, …

      Is anyone else having problems with the new FF? Any advice as to what I should/could do to restore my system? Chredge????

      Oh HO! I just ran across the 0patch Agent item on the 0patch website. I’ll do the workaround and see how things go.

        I suggest reading Woody’s computerworld article before making any rash decisions.

          Woody suggested that workaround.

          and someone ahem.. posted on the 0Patch site:

          Why does my system tell me that I must “Specify valid numerical value for ‘/d’ ?

            Yep. I suggest making sure the “[space]%random%%random%[space]” after the “/d” is correctly typed or copied.

      0patch replied to say that the script they first provided was for cmd.exe and would not work in PowerShell, so they provided an PS script that worked just fine.
