@orlanth Hi my friend. I would like to agree with your post as a whole.
"It is Disney, not a dodgy cryptocoin link. So its safe from viruses. But that isn't the point, it should not be there."
I ask myself, what's the point in having user settings to stop unwanted additions to the browser.
I believe we should all suggest that as we adapt user settings to meet our own individual needs, we should not then have spam littering the start page.
