Since the admins don't appear to see it's in their interest to fix this... Any ideas for what to do with Tor browser? Surprised others aren't using it, given the https problem. Tried blocking tracking as strictly as possible without success. It's a portable installation with no cache. Closing the browser clears everything. All other security settings appear to be maxed by default. Scripts are allowed for FC, which is needed for most sites to function these days. There is an ultimate solution that's beginning to have more appeal - a certain alternative forum in which many of the same topics are discussed by many of the same participants. For now, FC appears to get higher traffic, but as problems like this make FC less competitive, that could (and sadly, maybe should) change. Love FC - learned volumes of useful information here. It's sad to see these issues bringing it down.
