I got a warning notice from Yahoo that someone was signing into my mail, and web-site from Richardson, TX they wanted to know if it was me or a hacker. I checked my IP and internet service; its from California. but there was a long list of sign-ins from Richardson, TX (2602:306:cd7f:62fo:h5dc:e286:9196) for the last 19 days(Aug 12?) then from CA a few days, then back to Richardson, TX, with the Firefox logo. Am I safe or whats happening?

Having more than one version of a program may cause issues. You must remove the older programs. Then get the current full installer.

Note: Edge on Win10 does not use ActiveX version but its own Flash.

I did change my password, but since I have to go on the internet to do it, I am still going through Richardson, TX. All I want to know is: does Mozilla Firefox use Richardson, TX for the browser. I am not a computer person so don't speak the language. I gave the URL Firefox is using, is it legal? Is it yours?

ps: I do have Flash Payer Version 18.0.0.232

I found the problem. ATT is my internet service provider, and they have offices in TX. Tomorrow I WILL get on the phone and find out all the trouble. Also, I think Yahoo is getting carried away with their security notices. I paniced. So sorry
