Thanks for the link, jon!

And some wonder why I have and still do hate javascript. rolleyes.gif It had great promise and did a lot of things that couldn't be done in the early days of web browsers. Today, not so much. On the other hand, it has become one of the primary means of invading our privacy. wallbash.gif

Been using Nord VPN for a couple of months, but it does sometimes slow things down and if you lose the connection to their server, it forces your browser to Quit. Fortunately, most browsers (I think) will/can restart with all the last tabs open.

I think some of the most irritating javascript's are the ones that detect blockers and complain or accuse us of denying them income. I usually just never go back. If they can't figure out a better way to supply what I want, they obviously don't want me as a customer. rolleyes.gif If they really value my info, pay me for it!
