Thanks to all for your interest and help; Firefox gave me an update this morning and all is well again, fingers crossed.

Well, the 2018 Beta, but it did the job  ;D

Problem solved! Serendipitously (which I would never say aloud) I found myself on the Firefox page which invites you to change your master password (for Firefox); thinking I had nothing to lose I typed in my password (which I fortunately remembered) and found the option to cancel the need for a master password which I clicked on and discovered that my stored logins were immediately restored. O happy day! Definitely not an intuitive procedure, but effective.  ;D

The moral of that experience, being, I suppose: if you don't trust your browser then store your logins somewhere else. Lesson learnt. GRRR!

Glad that I'm not alone in my quandary; noticed that several chatters are on Windows 10, while I'm still on W7, and quite happy with it, even though they've not offered me an update for a few months. One of my main concerns was that my stored logins had ALL disappeared, which gave me a lot of time-wasting creating logins for email accounts, chiefly. To avoid this I would advise any Firefox users considering an upgrade to Firefox QUANTUM to make screen-grabs of their logins or make photos of them. The Firefox help forums have been absolutely no help.
            Thanks to all for your interest.

Technical Help / Calamitous Firefox Quantum update

Downloaded the above last night and have spent ages since trying to recover my saved logins with passwords, which I rely on considerably. Visits to the Firefox help forums have discovered several people in the same fix, but with no simple solution to the problem. I would love to read other users' moans about this so as not to feel completely isolated, and if any Firefox fan (as I have been for years) has found a solution I would love to hear from them, congratulate them and benefit from their expertise.
        Now where did I store my library pin . . .

Caernarvonshire / Re: where exactly is Caellwyngrydd N

Hello Washy; this wonderful programme (passed on on Rootschat) https://historicplacenames.rcahmw.gov.uk/placenames/map
will give you old and modern Rachub/Caellwyngrydd; the chevrons (like vvv armbands, top right ) will let you flick between old and new OS maps.

Breconshire / Re: bryngarn farm

Failed to find bryngarn farm on https://historicplacenames.rcahmw.gov.uk/placenames/map which is a wonderful resource found here; nant ddu can be easily found though. Perhaps you are restricting your readership by posting under Welsh language posts and might reach a wider audience by reposting under Wales -counties. Best of luck!

Wales / Re: welsh equivalent of Newhouse
« on: Monday 12 March 18 00:26 GMT (UK)  »
I don't think that a Welsh surname, translated, would end up as 'Newhouse'. It might conceivably arise from a Welshman being named as 'John etc Tŷ Newydd', common as a form of Welsh nickname, but seems unlikely to be have been used for official purposes.
