junk mail unsubscribe feature
I am receiving junk mail from the following address:flashlights tactical Military firstname.lastname@example.org. When I click on the unsubscribe feature at the bottom I get the following error message that the site is not secure: hyperurl.co uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.smarturl.it, smarturl.it Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN
As a result of this message I am not able to unsubscribe from this junk mail and I continue to am receive them daily. It is my hope that you will address this issue on a general level as it is a tactic these companies are using to effectively disallow individuals using their right to refuse junk mail
Thank you so much. Sincerely, Anne Marie Kitz

Beyond the scope of Firefox support; Firefox doesn't do email, it is a web browser.
The general rule is to not unsubscribe because that will tell the spammer that your email address is actively being used. And that may result in your email address getting even more spam from a list the first spammer sells to others; known active email accounts.
You're better off adding that domain to your spam list in whatever you're using for email; webmail or an email such a Thunderbird.
