I am trying to switch browsers for BBO but am having trouble. The Settings under the Accounts Tab does NOT show the check boxes for choosing an option under Firefox and Edge. What can I do to show the check boxes ? Right now I have to scroll over the area and hope I am
selecting the correct option.

Try Chrome, it hasn't given me any trouble

I use EDGE which is Chrome based. Seems to work well for me.

Edge, which is standard for Windows systems, works just fine. I'm not sure what works with Apple systems

Firefox has worked well for me on both Mac and Windows.

Slide the gray vertical divider bar -- between Settings and the "table area" -- further to the left to enlarge the Settings area. Click left and hold, drag left.

Sliding the divider does nothing, the selector blobs are always there on the right, and the words slide off if the pane is narrowed. But they are not check-boxes in the traditional sense, but slider blobs that slide left or right when dragged. (Could this be dependent on your choice of desktop environment? ie Windows looks one way and KDE another?) I am using firefox very happily, before that I had no problems with chromium. Friends have problems with communications dropping in safari.

We adopted a consistent style from the mobile app. So instead of checkboxes all the options use those slider toggles. It's the same in all browsers.
