    Apparently, my latest Win 10 update has forked up my access to FireFox.

    Now, every time I click on FireFox, a message tells me that MS Family Features requires a child to request permission from an adult to use FireFox.

    I can't really understand this as I have not set up MS Family Safety. When I log in to MS and go to the page, there are no family members registered there, nothing.

    Apparently, the required certificate is not lodged with Windows so it needs to be entered manually.

    I have printed off a guide on how to do this, but I can't find "Microsoft Family Safety Certificate" in the right-hand pane.

    I am well-forked orf.....

    You should ask a responsible adult.

    Re-install the whole damn lot. If you can't do that take it to someone who can.

    Have you tried rolling back to a pre-update setup?
