Hey guys,

As the Pros know, if you do local search you need Classic maps as new maps is different and missing features we need for local SEO.

I always have my main FF browser that defaults to Classic maps and that's what I always use. If I need to research with new maps then I go to Chrome.

Starting yesterday and continuing all day today I can't get Classic to stick. Every time I research something it defaults to new maps. I change to Classic and then when it asks I select, yes keep Classic for future map searches. (Or whatever that wording is.) But then next time I check something I'm back in new maps again. It's just not holding my preference for Classic.

Anyone else having the problem?

Just a glitch or sign that she's forcing us to new maps because Classic is going away???
