Freshloaf Preferences

I am trying to enter a valid email address and whenever I save it, my account name shows up in the email field! What's with that? I received no confirmation of the change from Freshly either. Is that normal for this site?I want to ensure that when I make a comment and get a reply, it comes into my email inbox.

I have attached a screenshot to show that Freshloaf indicate that the changes have been saved, but the email address field still switched back to show just my account name.

 Also, why are there so many pop up adds here?

Thanks.

The yellow background means your browser is auto-populating that field. It isn't coming from the site.

The ads pay the bills.

Thanks but why would it populate the field with my account name when it is the email field. That makes no sense to me. Further, even though it looks like it is saving the account name, it is not intact saving the email address because I am now getting notification in my mail client. 

So even though it still looks odd, it is working the way I want it too :)

PS As for the adds don't you find them annoying. They are instant regardless where you navigate. Personally I never would consider going to an advertised site just out of principal.

Then send Floyd some money for providing this incredible resource.

While I do appreciate the site, there really isn't that much to putting up a website like this. I cannot afford to send any money as I am a pensioner with very limited resources. Feel better now?

This site provides invaluable information. It takes work and financial resources. Ads make it possible. Do you want to fund the site? By supporting the advertisers you support this site. How's that for principle?

Each to his/her own I guess. The ads I see here of of zero interest. Have a nice day.
