    No issues in Firefox.

    macOS Catalina

    Yes I was thinkinf of Mac Book Pro. Still like I said the Hades on maxed out spec would be a better purchase.

    Can't see hard drives after BIOS update

    Did the machine already have Windows 10 or was it an upgrade? If an upgrade the original OS may have had a different boot parameter and the upgraded BIOS is looking for a boot partition for clean install of Windows 10 but you haven't provided any other details. What was the issue that required the BIOS update?

    macOS Catalina

    Yes, but you did quote in your second post that a notebook with it on could easily stretch to $50-60,000 - or was that too many zeros? By comparison the Hades would offer far more.

    Zorin 15 Beta is now out!

    The Beta has now reached the Final Release Stage. Zorin has now made Core Free of Charge - no ask for donations - but it may appear that Ultimate users are subsidising Core users at a high price (?) of €39. However you do have to bear in mind that Zorin 15 being based on Ubuntu 18.04 will be supported until 2027 so not bad price. Core is totally free as will Education and Lite. The manual has been updated recently - still w.i.p. The link has not changed, just the latest version of the document. Promotional video: https://zorinos.com/ And they are hoping to launch dedicated hardware: https://zorinos.com/computers/ In the meantime there's always Entroware: https://www.entroware.com/store/index.php?route=common/home

    macOS Catalina

    Why waste money on a Catalina when you could waste good money on a better, more productive machine, one of these: https://www.entroware.com/store/hades?search=hades Maxed out spec = Price: £18,804.86 Ex Tax: £15,670.72 And this includes multiple graphics cards, 2 x 27 inch monitors with Logitech keyboard and mouse!

    Tracing a caller?

    Just been looking around and giving this a try: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vladlee.easyblacklist&hl=en I now realise that since Comodo Internet Security updated to the latest version, call blocking is no longer present as it used to be - i.e., included option to block private/unknown numbers.

    Talktalk email address issues

    I vaguely remember (or imagined it) that they give you this when you sign up - afterward just log in to 'My Account' and edit the Primary email address, i.e, change from phone# to Mr_and_Mrs.Smith@talktalk.net - and get banned by hotel booking systems!

    Tracing a caller?

    If it's a smart phone, open the phone app, then look in the menu (3 dots top right - or it might be 3 bars on left and look for 'Contacts Manager'. Inside there should be 'blocked numbers' - when opened you should see a plus sign to add a new one. If the number is not shown that might be difficult to add obviously but you did not state this in the OP.
