I use hotmail.com with Firefox on a Win10 computer. 


Like everyone else I get spam/phishing junk mail.  I've reduced the volume significantly by blocking the entire domain whenever hotmail will allow, else I block the username@domain.  Obviously, blocking "domain.com" blocks "abcdef@domain.com", "bcdef@domain.com", etc.  I also report the spam by forwarding as appropriate . . . to paypal, amazon, facebook, etc. and to a couple of general spam-fighting addresses.


I've found it easiest to store all these spam-fighting addresses in a group in hotmail.  That keeps me from having to remember all of them plus the "general" ones.   Then when I forward, I simply remove any addresses that are not appropriate for that specific junk mail.  I don't forward phishing that "appears" to be from Paypal to Amazon or Facebook, etc. 


Before today, when I clicked on a group email, it showed in the address line with a "+" to the left of the group name.  Clicking on that "+" would replace the group name with all the individual addresses.  Then I could quickly remove inapplicable addresses.


But today, suddenly, the "+" no longer appears.  I cannot see &/or remove individual addresses.


Have I inadvertently changed a setting?  If so, how do I reset it?
