Fix to forum change may be stealing your browser history

Options
To those who added the 'Stylish' extension to their Chrome and Firefox browsers to fix the columnwidth issue when the forum was updated in April (https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showpost.php?p=74151687&postcount=8), there is a report that this extension sends your web browser history data back to a server on the internet. See https://robertheaton.com/2018/07/02/stylish-browser-extension-steals-your-internet-history/ for more details.

That link also suggests an alternative extension 'Stylus' which is based on an earlier version of Stylish before the spyware was added
