    One of the web sites I frequent on Safari,, has been destroyed. I see all of the links to other pages which used to appear as a column on the right side, but now appear as a column on the left. I cannot get the articles themselves; they’ve disappeared. It’s as though everything has been squeezed to the left pushing the articles off the web site.

    All this occurred as I was customizing AdBlock.
