        I like Kim Kommando’s tips so I signed up for several newsletters. I’m sickened by the politics in a lot of the ads so I tried unsubsribing individually and en masse. It doesn’t happen because the web page refreshes automatically too quickly for me to click the button. So I tried customer service and the same things happens–just about when I’m typing in the last letter of my name (which is the first box, even before you ask your question), automatic refresh. Even if I do nothing and just stay on the page, it refreshes.

        I’m using Windows 10 home.

        This doesn’t happen anywhere else and I’ve tried on 3 different days. Suggestions other than blocking?

        Just plain block it in your email

        Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

          I did, but I’d still like to be able to unsubscribe.

        If you are using Firefox, you could try stopping the auto-refresh in your browser (other browsers probably have similar setting options).

          I am using Firefox and had no idea this was an issue with the newest version.

          Thank you!!!
