Recently I began receiving junk when I try to click on a link. I think I'm in Safe Mode. No File, Edit, ... Options but no other signs to indicate Safe Mode. A screen shot follows and I'd appreciate suggestions: Ops. Guess I don't know how to cut and paste. Help out with that, please.

After you've taken the screen shot/s...
Reduce it/them to around 600 x 500 or so in your favourite image editor, (Be sure to remove any personal info.)
& upload them to your favourite image hosting site.
> http://tinypic.com/ (If you use TinyPic, select "Message Board" from the "Resize" drop down.)
> https://imgur.com/
> https://imgbox.com/
> https://ctrlq.org/images/

&...Select the code listed as "Forum Thumbnail", copy the code and paste it in
the thread where you reported your problem.

"You're receiving junk?" From where?
What site?
If you're in Firefox Safe Mode, then after right clicking in the Tab Bar & selecting the Menu Bar,
you'd be seeing all the usual buttons...File, View, Edit etc.,
Just no extensions & the default theme.

I was in Safe Mode with no change. I've decided it's a Microsoft problem as it occurs in Chrome, too.
Thank you folks.
