OK, I broke a long standing rule of mine today, and upgraded a software application on the day it launched.
And I got burnt.
Many of the Addons which I rely upon (and most importantly the RoboForm menu bar) don't work in the new version.
Oh well, Hopefully I can roll back to the previous version.
And wait until the new release settles down, and addons are upgraded.
EDIT: in case anyone needs it, v22.214.171.124 isd available from
