What is the security on this website? I recently got an email from a man who I never corresponded with ...

Posted

who had applied to a dating website but was waiting for approval and not yet a member. When I asked him how he got my personal email account which was NOT on there, he said that his "detector" told him. When asked for details this was his reply...

"I don't know how it works but my mozilla fire fox gave me an email address which was the same as your username of the site, So I think it just added the (my email provider) to your username that what I had and decided to message you."

Since Mozilla (I found this out when it was so difficult to find that contact us, was NO contact and found it difficult to find how to post a question and register) a basically self service site how did he do this? Is there a way one can delete the information from Firefox. I have a google chrome book and thus have not used Mozilla for years.

I am probably posting this on the wrong place in the forum from the trouble shooting answers i'm getting but don't know where else to post this.
