Problems your your font size again, size 2px and not size 2, I modified the quoted text
For me, font size is 10 and It's showing up fine?


Believe me the original wasn't, I change the quoted text, but you have since changed the original (after my post) and that looks fine.

How to improve your privacy in Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge and Brave

Edited to remove tagging from hyperlink. Sorry guys. :-[
@rocksteady
  You should always hover over any link or hyperlink before clicking, anyway. As we see here, the destination can be easily modified.

@Simion,
Links like yours above that only show a title but not the destination webpage (unless you mouse hover) are not nice.
Prefer this:

Hovering the mouse over the text shows the underlying link.

But what I don't like about that link is all of the tag cr4p after it.
