EDGE BROWSER, Windows10 I have to use www.refreshthing.com to auto-refresh Edge (no extension available), which is the only browser that will allow me to download a certain stream from nest.com via www.starrranch.org/blog - if you can see it, it's the Trail cam. bottom left. (I hope you get the picture!) As of a couple of weeks ago the site is "infected" with coin-hive, which Malwarebytes is blocking (see attached). When I close the popup it is immediately replaced by a variant of same, ad infinitum. Is there any way I can use RefreshThing while MB continues to block coin-hive but without notifying me? I can find no alternative. Many thanks if you can help, and many thanks just for trying to follow the intro
I've also been getting messages about coin-hive being blocked. It's said to be originating from firefox.exe. I will try unloading all the Firefox extensions. It may be relevant that it seems to be connected with updates on KUSC's website kusc.org (public radio station in Los Angeles). Slightly later: I've tried disabling all my Firefox add-ons without effect, but I closed the tab in which kusc.org was running and the messages no longer occur. Is it possible that something on kusc.org has been infected with it?
