Video Loads Automatically

Whether I sign in using Yahoo Classic or the New Version, an advertising video loads automatically in my Inbox and every other empty folder.

I can stop it and X out of it but it still starts automatically then next time that I sign in.

The only way to stop the video from loading upon sign-in is to email myself and save the email in each folder.

Is there a way to permanently stop videos from loading automatically upon sign-in or is doing what I did the only way to stop them from loading?

“Grub loading… Welcome to grub” banner appears before grub bootloader loads

I have a dual boot system with kali and ubuntu. One week ago I did a system update with apt upgrade but interrupted it because kali did not respond if I moved the mouse. Now, when I start my laptop, there is the banner Grub loading... Welcome to grub!. The banner was not there before the update. Actually I did not experienced problems or damages so far but it is really annoying for me. Can I remove it or is it possible that the banner is sign for a possible damage?

JAWS with IE 11 – focus moves to different area on different computers after page loads

So there are 3 of us. We all have JAWS 2018

I have IE 11 11.557.17763.0 My two coworkers have IE 11.885.17134.0

So I on the web page in question, there is a drop down menu with a checkbox immediately in the tab order after that. I can drop down that menu, make a choice, the page will load and my focus will move to that checkbox

But my two coworkers, when the page loads for them, focus moved to the URL bar of the IE 11 web browser.

We think that because I am still using an older version of IE, there must have been some kind of IE update that is causing their browsers to perform that action, but I cannot duplicate it on my computer.

My website only loads after several refreshes

I’m trying to understand why my website only loads on the second or third refresh of the page. Once the assets are cached it loads withing a few seconds otherwise it times-out after taking too long.

I suspect it has something to do with my nginx as it’s the part I understand the least in my stack but was often edited. I can’t seem to access the error log either.

Is there anything erroneous about my setup?

Here is my default.conf:

Expanded Ubuntu partition size, now loads into grub

I ran out of space on my Ubuntu 16.04 partition so I used easeUS partition master on Windows 10 to shrink my Windows partition, move the unallocated space over, then expand the Ubuntu partition. Now when I try to boot into Ubuntu, I only get the grub terminal.

I was able to locate the grub.cfg file but after trying to set it as the config file, I got a very quick error message containing a bunch of seemingly random numbers and letters.

error: no such device: 7debd206-c…

I was also unable to find the vmlinuz file.

When using the “set” command I get back:

?=0 cmdpath=(hdq,gpt2)/EFI/ubuntu ... lang = locale_dir= net_default_ip=(null) net_default_mac=(null) net_default_server= pager= pxe_default_server= root=hd1,gpt2 secondary_locale_dir= 

Where the “…” are settings what I assume to be unnecessary for this question.

Booting ubuntu off a flashdrive I am able to list the partitions on my computer and the one that should be the Ubuntu partition says Microsoft basic data. I dont think this is important but I thought it would be better to include it anyway.

If anyone can help me boot up Ubuntu without having to format the partition that would be great! Thank you!

Does it cost money to actually have a working website rather than one that just loads? [on hold]

I know a website. I can open it and it loads but it has not significantly different from none amount of text or hyperlinks at all: just a loaded page that’s blank or has two words. Was this done to conserve money or did they just happen to have a server but can’t afford a programmer to write the html?

GNU GRUB screen no longers loads Ubuntu OS

I was working fine with Ubuntu but one day when I restart it because it freeze the Lap return to the GNU GRUB screen (the purple one) where there’s only 3 options: Ubuntu / Advanced option for Ubuntu / System setup. When I hit Ubuntu the screen freezes in the purple screen like if its loading but it can stay like that for hours. I havent make my backup so, what are the commands to recover my info?

Slow page loads due to WordPress Core Query

I have a page with many posts and every single page load is noticably slow. Hence, I have checked with Query Monitor the culprit(s) for the slow loading time and found that one query in particular is taking 90% of the time.

This one query is:

SELECT ID FROM posts WHERE (post_content LIKE '%template=publish%') 

This query takes 3-4 seconds everytime a page (frontend/backend) is loaded. This is not userfriendly as well as it puts a straing on the DB, too.

Since this query originates from WP-core, simply deactivating a plugin will not solve the issue. enter image description here

Does anyone have any suggestions as to reduce/improve/cache the query? Unfortunately Object-Caching is not feasable on this site.
