    you are way behind the times, if a server uses cPanel all sites on the server now get a free SSL installed automatically though autoSSL.
    SSL is not a scam it is a service provided by webhosts, just like domains, SSL certs encrypt personal details and payment details, without an SSL your details would be seen by anyone with access to webservers and payment processors.

    SSL is a scam, on dark web they say it has virtually been hacked anyway from what I have read, but would require state sponsored computing.

    It is not the be all and end all anyway.
    Thanks, don't you just hate people with sigs !

    We have Firefox on: my desktop, wife's laptop, both phones and my tablet. Phones are both Wileyfox, but the other devices are different manufaturers. On all 5 devices, Firefox works perfectly. Desktop is Firefox - synced to my phone and tablet. Wife's laptop is synced to her phone. I have used Firefox for many years.

    There may be more than one way to skin a cat.
    But the result is always inedible.

    I recently removed Firefox because it seemed to be hanging up repeatedly, but using IE instead did not remove the problem. It has become pretty clear that my problem is Windows 7.
