Apparently when I bought a Fire HD10 last year, it somehow became my default download device (replacing Kindle cloud reader). So now the HD10 has the hundreds of free books I've acquired since then. Not only do I have to delete them one by one, but after each delete I have to wait until the book list refreshes with one more title before I can get the menu to delete the next one. Surely there must be a better way?
So it's 2 months since this post, and I just noticed that my default device once again somehow got switched from cloud reader to the Fire HD10. Is there something my wife could be doing accidentally on the HD10? I thought it could only be changed in MYCD, but she never logs into that.

Logged into my bank's Internet Banking site, glanced at the account balances, they looked okay, copied credit card balance to clipboard and went into Funds Transfer - I was there to pay my credit card debt.

Did what I do every month, pay off Credit Card from Cheque Account, but I didn't end up at the "Done, where to next guv?" page. Instead I ended up at the Transaction List page... and my balances hadn't changed, credit card should have been zero but it was still $49.50.

Tried a couple of times over next couple days, same result. I hate having to call banks and such with their press 2, press # nineteen thousand times. Have you tried our Internet Banking. Are you sure you want to speak to an account rep. Did you know we have phone banking too.

Listened to their crappy music, yelled obscenities at their promos telling me what a wonderful outfit they are. They're not, they're the NAB, they just got a shellacking from a Royal Commission for charging people for stuff they didn't want or didn't need, and charging people for things the bank could never deliver - because those particular things never existed.

Eventually a pleasant enough lady took my call, we walked through the transaction - at the end of which I heard a long sigh - "What browser are you using?', "Firefox 69," says I. Another sigh "Can you try doing it in Internet Explorer?", "No," says I, "I uninstalled IE ages ago - I have Chrome, Edge, and Falkon"

Upshot was we finished the call with the understanding that if I couldn't do it in another browser I'd call back. Fired up Edge, did what was needed to logon to NAB, the Funds Transfer worked fine.

I thought we'd gotten well beyond banks and government agencies etc being stuck in the 1990's.

Over the weekend, I had massive issues getting Debian installed on my new laptop. It seems GRUB is massively messed up on (at least some) Apollo Lake devices and you need to use a different bootloader like rEFInd. Only took me like 9 hours to figure that out.
