New MacBook Air M1 after my Pixelbook Go died. Oh well. Here it is.

I am running as an Admin account but I have severely restricted it through Terminal tweaks and the Privileges app. Once I have everything configured I will consider creating a separate admin account.

I would suggest you to use uBlock Origin or AdGuard..
Thank you. I do! MT changed a lot of the fields. I didn't know where to put them. My extensions are:

Testing:
-Random User-Agent (Chrome extension)

Testing. Right now I think they defeat their own purpose because the fake user agents are not being updated to the latest browser versions so you stand out because your UA is from a browser from last year and who does that?? Useless.

Removed:
-NeatURL (Chrome extension)

I replaced it with a userscript in Violentmonkey.
