Skip to comments.My Computer Goes Nuts Every Time I Freep. Anyone else?

It's fine until I tune into Free Republic, and then the screen goes upside down, or sideways, or twirls around willy nilly. Or it starts scrolling down uncontrollably and then shutting the page I'm on, and it keeps doing this even after I leave freep. Anyone else getting this problem?
Baby sick...mine is fine...Di8d you have an update?
It only happens on my computer when some Fearper posts.
Not that I noticed.
UHF or VHF? If you've lost the plastic knob, sometimes you have to use pliers.
Check for Malware and Viruses. No problems with it here at all. What OS and version is your operating system and what is your browser and its version?
A plastic knob, you say? I still have the old wooden knobs.
Without channel locks and duct tape civilization would end.
Yes, made a post that was nagative Dem post and received a bill from an anonymous email address but wanted to check it out. Suddenly my Apple ID page opened and then a Google quesion page opened with my Free Republic post was displayed on the question area.
This is one of those pictures that divides the world into those who are old enough to understand, and the ignorant.
AVG found nothing. I think I’ve got Windows 10 and Firefox browser. But the problem persists even after the negative AVG deep scan. Voter fraud? What voter fraud? virus, we can name it. Or how about Biden Wins or Jeff Epstein-cide?
Are you logged in?
I’ve also been getting bizzarro pastings when I push certain buttons, sometimes of entire passages I’d previously posted on freep or elsewhere.
I will make a post and see how it turns out.
I regularly went to a CDC.gov site that gave statistics on
“excess deaths.” Since Americans are always dying, I thought it interesting to see how many more were dying than usual. It’s been a while since I used that link.
This morning the link does not work. First my updated OS tells me the link is not secure. Then it does not work. I went directly to the CDC website, CDC.gov. I’ve rummaged around and have not yet found anything on excess deaths. Maybe they are conducting routine maintenance. Or maybe they are moving out and pleasing the new administration. Time may tell.
Are you sure it’s not you going upside down, or sideways, or twirling around willy nilly while the computer stays still?
First, change your browser. You have lots of choices. Stay away from Google and Bing. I know that Comcast is programmed in China. If you are using Comcast, they have your data. And your cable box is Chinese controlled. Consider using your own equipment. A router and modem is not expensive and its better than theirs. Try private windows. That is harder for them if they are watching your login. And then you could try a VPN. VPNs are good anyway.
This will never get you totally out of the woods. They can always see the address in the stream of your data going in and out. But it makes it much harder. And the effort may be too much for them. If you were Tucker they would make that effort. But you are a low importance target. So its more likely that all you need to do is make it hard.
One thing that is really important. Don’t sync your phone to your computer. Don’t use google very much. Don’t use Facebook or Twitter or Instagram if you can help it. Certainly you never want to login to these things. Don’t install Zoom, ever. And Wechat and TikTok are right out. These are among the worst. There are far more.
If you'll excuse me, I'll go take my Geritol.
I would scrub your Firefox Internet cache and all your saved pages and cookies . You may have to login again to sites and you will lose your history, but that is the first thing I would do.
