I have received a similar message, I deactivated it as requested and had 
no particular issuesl

a little of topic, but it is indeed an issue. The best choices you have 
on 10.6.8 are

- TenFourFox Intel (some sort of side-project of me and Ken)

- ArcticFox (mostly my toy and Matt, a fork of PaleMoon 27

TFF is slighly more modern in features, but is geared for 10.4 so on 
10.6 you have minor nuiseances, also I was not able to fix JIT on Intel, 
if you want to help... could prove useful

Both are good enough to use track, google.. especially ArcticFox is 
capable of going on Facebook even, ebay... very nice!

However, GitHub is a bad beast to crack: recent changes broke things 
(oh.. since it is Microsoft owned?) so with these 
semi-vintage-but-updated-browsers some things do not work well. E.g I 
think you can open an Issue, browse changes, but e.g. comments are 
unusable, large diffs do not load fully and other annoying things which 
increase day after day.

Help appreciated, if you do love 10.6 and 10.7... (and 10.5 soon,
