Following Links from E-Mails
I am subscribed to 4 or 5 Firearm forums, and I have a problem following links. every time I click a link, when it opens in the browser, doesn't matter the forum, it goes to address 127.0.0.0
Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

Same problem, just started happening last Thursday 01/16/20.
I sent feedback about the issue then, but no followup from vesta.threadloom.news.
And obviously no correction or information on how to fix the issue from them.
Not sure if I should blame it on my browser or firewall, but I haven't made any changes in months so don't expect that to be a problem. Unless Microsoft did an update and screwed up more stuff.
Error message is ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED
This site can’t be reached127.0.0.1 refused to connect.

That IP is a loopback address that is controlled entirely by your PC operating system - it's a local host address. When it appears it means that your network card is working correctly. It has nothing to do with the site you are trying to navigate to.
I assume you are using Windows - and if so, I'd check to see if you have a some security updates to install. If Linux or Mac OS I'd check those for updates as well.
I navigated to this thread from a link in an email and had no issues doing so.
