Prohibited characters error
When I go to www.tractorsupply.com, and click on "My Wallet," I get the error, "Prohibited characters error." The My Wallet is an area reserved for special offers that the shopper can load to the shopping cart.

Did you log in before clicking my wallet. And until another registered user does what your saying this will be impossible to do.
Yes, I logged into my account first, went to my cart, clicked on the "My Wallet" icon, and received the prohibited characters error message.
So unless you can get a screenshot of that without showing personnel information is the only other way for others to see what or where that is happening.
That's not possible, to provide screenshots without showing personal info. Thank you for trying to help and your quick response to my question.
What characters are allowed in that input field ?
You can right-click and select "Inspect" to open the built-in Inspector with this element selected.
I did a right click on the "My Wallet" icon and opened the Inspector. What am I looking for and what is the next action. I have discovered, in the meantime, that the My Wallet icon opens when I'm on the Tractor Supply home page; I get the Prohibited error message when I'm on the dashboard and cart pages.

@ cor-el: Thank you for your detailed reply. I have gone through your troubleshooting suggestions and nothing resolved the issue. I then discovered that the same error occurs when I use Chrome. In researching further and examining the source code of the My Wallet feature in Chrome, I discovered it likely has something to do with a deprecating feature. Per definition I found via a Google search, "Deprecated refers to a software or programming language feature that is tolerated or supported but not recommended. A deprecated attribute or feature is one that may eventually be phased out, but continues to be used in the meantime." I called Tractor Supply to have their IT look into it. I'm surmising there is nothing further that I can do at this point.
