I am receiving junk mail from the following address:flashlights tactical Military herminacagliostroep1715@hotmail.c. 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

Any time a page won't load it is with a sense of inevitability that I notice t.co in the address. It is happening across all my devices, but specifically my macbook and imac where I use firefox.

There is no error message, just a blank page that stops trying to load. This has been going on for weeks now and it's really tiresome. Reboot, update, all the basic tricks haven't changed anything. Running Yosemite 10.10.5 with the latest version of firefox.

It has also been paralleled (as far as I can tell) with slower loading of pages in general, freezing of pages for several seconds, tabs freezing when I try to click between them and very jerky scrolling. I've used firefox for years but I can't put up with this for much longer.

And I'm not sure if it's related, but I cannot confirm my disqus account as that page won't load either.

I've gone to Preferences and changed the default home page a dozen times today and it keeps coming back. I see other people who've encountered this problem (for me at least) say "Problem soled." Well, my problem isn't.

Please advise.

Thank you,

I was very upset on updating to firefox quantum to see that I could not disable tabbed browsing. How can you do this in the new firefox? To anticipate responses: For all those who are as arrogant as the google chrome developers and say that opposition to tabs is legacy behaviour they do not want to support, I can only express my disgust. The tab bar takes up valuable screen real estate. If you have a visual impairment and need magnified text, losing the pixels really hurts easy browsing.

I am on a mac book pro (2 months old.)

When I visit my own website (www.NLP4Kids.org) it causes my mac to crash. Initially I thought it was a problem with the site and got it checked but it is running fine on my colleague macbook.

When I visit the site firefox freezes, sometimes the images become "tiled" (random squares of the page all jumbled up) and other times it just makes my mac switch off completely.

This doesn't happen in safari so apple will not offer help.

This continues to happen in safe mode.

According to firefox my plug ins are up to date
