running Windows 7 and hit the update button for Firefox
... and, what about your Thunderbird experience from this effort?

When I was a young 'un, we had to install from floppies (5.25", not any of the new fangled 3.5") ....
no, wait, I mean mag tape, or was it punched cards?
Stone tablets, hewn from the mountain, that's it, I remember now.
Is that enough? Six domains?
I tend to go with the pi-hole type approach - i.e. a far larger number of blocked domains, updated automatically, for various devices.
Obviously still need an adblocker in firefox. Doesn't work against lots of mobile ads: avoid apps where possible, and use the browser instead; many apps aren't really necessary.
... and repeated "Critical security alert for ... Sign-in attempt was blocked" emails when I use an android phone running k9 mail or fair email to access a gmail account.
Since I popped a new sim into a phone I get this every time the phone leaves a known wifi network and is on the cellular network / other wifi.
"I'll not bore you with the saga of getting my FTTN to be actually usable"
Our FTTN NBN is still usable for the time being; when it was rolled out we almost managed a 50/20 connection; around 2-3 years later we can't quite manage 25/5. Maybe we can soon look forward to 12/1 or whatever comes next.
"Why should a platform like Youtube not have the right to remove any content posted by users that it wants to remove?"
... exactly. Treat YouTube like any other means for generating publicity for your content, don't rely on it.
Easier done from the beginning: host your content somewhere you control, link to from YouTube (probably entails uploading to them too).
App should validate input
a) for valid characters - perhaps numeric / alphabetic only allowed in certain positions
b) against vehicle registration database
c) allow input which fails validation only after a warning, so your foreign registered vehicle which may be hard to validate can still buy a ticket.
But by not using one of these convenient options one limits the ability of Apple/Google/Facebook etc to use one's data.
If I don't use this to sign in to Epic, are they going to know how often I use the Epic platform? Will I miss out on some targeted ads?
Uh, so someone else has had:
"Sign-in attempt was blocked. Someone just used your password to try to sign in to your account. Google blocked them, but you should check what happened."
I thought it was just me (not). Every time my phone (running K9 mail) connects to a wifi hotspot; thunderbird similarly. Makes me want to dump google email; I keep putting it off, but I have no strong attachments to my google email addresses. Must soon realise this laziness costs me more effort.
"encryption chips in the photos"
Pics, or it didn't happen.
Sounds like a crap / pricey messaging app anyway. Are all these lawyers and journalists just there to communicate with the criminals, or just because of the integrity of the platform?
I'm considering crossing this off my ways to pass information to WikiLeaks under the circumstances - sorry Jules. Back to writing messages on the back of a fag packet.
"business where you use your phone to order your coffee but take payment via contact-less credit card."
Isn't that something that could be handled adequately by a website? Then no appstore is involved, so no cut.
To me there seem to be too many things that want one to use an app unnecessarily, when a website will do just fine; I do, however, think email is a worthy exception - I'm prepared to use an app for email that connects to any email provider that supports IMAP, pop3, SMTP, rather than use webmail.
