redirection mail.comcast.net to Xfinity.com

redirection mail.comcast.net to Xfinity.com

I use a bookmark (mail.comcast.net etc.) to view my mail.  Lately clicking it redirects to Xfinity.com and I am on the unwanted Xfinity homepage where I need to click again the mail icon to get to the actual address that is in my bookmark.  I have checked the correctness of my bookmark address.   When I arrive on the homepage it shows my name in the corner so this is not a sign-in issue.  How do I  turn off redirection and stop this annoying time and tab wasteing exersize.  I have NO interest in viewing the [Explitive] on the home page.

Anytime you try to save a bookmark, url, icon or shortcut to the email Inbox page, sooner or later it will start reverting to the Xfinity homepage.  Sorry but that is just the nature of the beast.  The only reliable way to side-step it is to enable the account in a desktop email client like Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Windows Live Mail etc.

When I check my bookmarked address  [using Shift, Cmd, B ] I can see all my bookmark addresses and the change is not happening there.   The redirection occurs when I click the one for my mail and I see the address bar change like some virus taking me to a fraudulent site.

Tried shortening the URL as you suggested but that only worked for a day,  But I have found that if I use the bookmark to instead go to the voice-mail first  < https://vm.connect.comcast.net/ >  that one has not been tampered with YET.

 

The voice-mail screen then has buttons for the email and other things which do go to where one wants to go, including the home page if I ever want to see some more advertising!
