To report a Impostor Facebook Account

Scam artists can take your profile info and pictures and create an impostor account.

Thankfully, Facebook has a simple way for victims to report it.

To report an impostor account, go the Impostor's page and click the “…”  located in the bottom right corner of the cover photo (which might even be your cover photo). Then click “Report,” and follow the instructions for notifying the site.
If the impostor has blocked you from getting to the fake account in your name? There are ways around that, too. You can ask a Facebook friend to file a report for you.

Login to Amazon.
Double click on your name, Advertising Preferences, Select Do not personalize and submit.

Firefox shows loading in task manager but never loads.


You click on Firefox and it never loads.  

 Start it in safe mode and reset it.

 Open a command prompt  (CMD) and type at the Dos screen type  
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -safe-mode and the press enter.
If this command fails to run check and make sure the location its installed and add the -safe-mode
at the end of the command.

Then select Refresh Firefox. 

In most cases this will remove any issues that prevent Firefox from loading.
