    I use two computers.
    One runs Firefox 60.0.2 (32 bit) under Windows 7 and the other runs Firefox 60.0.2 (64bit) under Windows 10.

    Both are set to display Bing as my opening page.

    Bing behaves in an optimal way on the Win 7 computer:
    Clicking on the news item icons at the bottom of the screen takes me directly to the specified subject. Weekly quiz takes me directly to the quiz. "on this date in history" takes me directly to that page.

    Bing does not behave in the same way on the Win 10 computer.
    Clicking on the news item icons takes me to a page of selections with a variety of subject matter that is not exactly what the news item specifies and I have trouble wading through the choices to find the specified, and desired material. Weekly Quiz, "on this date in history" and other specified material is hard to find.

    I no longer work with Bing on the Win 10 computer it just does not work properly.

    Has anyone else discovered this problem?

    Strange, isn't it that Bing works differently under Win 10? Does Win 10 implement an unwanted/unneeded security feature that just makes links to desired internet pages less than direct, unlike Bing under Win 7? I must try Bing under another browser to see iof there is a difference.
