      Citibank’s website https://online.citi.com still requires Flash, and I could not make a payment without clicking to allow Flash to run.

      Got to make you wonder that with so little attention on needed interfaces to transact payments what the security big picture might be like. I still feel vindicated in my continued refusal “to get” with it and do modern banking. Maybe more vindication is coming.

      It seems more attention is being paid these days to mobile apps than traditional Desktop usages. I hope their security is good there.

      Google recaptcha is a web standard.

      WEB Standard ? De facto GOOGLE standard maybe but not to my liking as I have to change browsers to deal with them! JUST DO NOT USE THEM !!

      All the id info in the reg and when it comes to Settings > Devices you are in the dark as to what device is yours especially if a neighbor has the same device. A sloppy way to do things IMHO.

      If you want the opt out option to reappear delete the askwoody cookies and reload the site!
      You may not want to delete all of them but there are a few that ‘look’ googlish go for them first.

      This is where logging into a webmail account has it’s advantages over client installed email programs. IOW, by using webmail, it’s never downloaded to your device,(unless you wish to do so) it’s only visable in your online mail account, which can be checked via VT/ purged from therein.

      something I have wondered about, how sure are you that there IS a difference. Will just seeing a header be a potential problem? If you auto view emails all bets are off for both modes would be my guess.

      There is a lot of slippery very slippery slope here. We here in the USA are lucky to have a very well defined right of free speech (but with freedom comes responsibility). Perhaps a slightly different tack would help. Can we avoid partisans of one particular point of view of allowing themselves being force fed only the ‘information’ they are addicted to? Perhaps the recommendation engines of the social media providers could be tweaked to add in a mix with other points of view keeping the ‘bubbles’ open. Free speech would not be the issue then. Make it positive to be on a site/service with a more open allowance of view points.

      I did paypal. It is annoying though. Some sites do not expose the full entry box (Little passports for another) an entry is NOT easy or in the case here possible at all. I would think another browser might work.
      Well no do not get past entering the amount.

      the extend subscription box does not light up. I am probably an outlier on this and the subscription has been renewed so no sweet.

      Ok I should really have said I can not input into the cc info space. I never get an active cursor or any evidence of text I input. I have Noscript but have allowed stripe.

      might be easier to try changing bank.

      And safer. I would question the ITfoo of any bank using flash in the last few years. Of course I am not one to do online banking yet..

      It is much better now IMHO with the Reply | Thanks | Quote on the bottom. The report button I have no opinion on, I have never used it and likely never will. (like most folk)

      I would note that for the last at least week maybe more, clicking on an attached image loads fast and clicking back subsequently in my browser goes back to the original page very very quickly. 🤩👍 I used to have to wait a few seconds. Maybe the new server arrangement??

      I just got annoyed again by having to scroll up to thank!

      This definitely belongs at the bottom of the post.

      Or are you trying to discourage ‘thanking’ ??

      I see that an “online’ vs “offline’ indicator was tried for a while, I have no opinion regarding that but it might be useful for some.

      I would REALLY like to be able to highlight a quote and hit the reply BY the quote to get that quote and index in the reply box. I realize that the software in use is very limiting but it would be nice.

      I would also like the function ‘new posts since last visit’ to be useful more than once a day. Not to hammer a dead horse but I miss the unread posts option from Windows Secrets.
