I have the latest version (5.70) of AllMyTube for MAC. I wanted to check with you to see if you''ve added a way to temporarily TURN OFF those damn Download Tabs since the last time that I asked you. They get in the way of various screen elements on banking and credit card websites. Preventing me from interacting or even reading parts of those sites. Will you do something about this or not?
