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.

The problem is that my user name password for an account stays on the signin page after I exit the page. After the password, there is a little slash that looks sorta like a comma, but thicker and darker. I dont want my password and username to come up without typing it in when I sign in to the account. How do I put a stop to this?

I want to know can someone hack Gmail accounts without logging in? I received mails from instagram that new login has been from new device with location from russia. another email few minutes after the first saying new login from iphone from bangladesh ,and third email that the password has been changed . The username which was mentioned is not created by me.someone used my email. also how does Instagram have my email address?As it might be I had a Instagram account which was created in 2019 and then deleted the app from my phone.I had only used it for few days. There is no direct complaint portal where such kind of incidents can be reported.all is automated which is dumb. I tried to complain but emails relies were to send a authenticated government ID which I should hold in my hands and send them a picture so they can authenticate and take action for the account. As I informed that the user ID is not the one which I have created why they should have my ID? but no response and same reply again. is there a dummy Instagram website?which we log in through the net instead of the app? is this a phising scam ? I changed the password and also put in new email address in the same account with the same username . I want to find out more and also alert those who might fall victim of such events. Please help if have more knowledge about it.

After using messenger with no problems for years, yesterday I tried to make calls (audio/video) in messenger and keep getting an error message that my "brower" doen't support them now. I have the latest verion of Firefox 78.02. Anyone else experiencing this?

It asks me to use either Firefox (which I obviously have, or chrome).

I switched to chrome and got the same error message when trying to make a call as well.

Thanks for any help.
