Default Change password - email not working

M$ has recently decided to alter all links in emails for security(?). The resulting links are a whole paragraph long and get redirected through: The resulting links often don't even work!

So my intended solution was to stop using their email service. Unfortunately I am unable to change that (or my password) in Account Settings. I entered my password at the top of the form, added the email change (in two places). The form button seems to not respond.

I'm using: Mac OS 10.12.6 Sierra
I tried: Safari 11.1.2 and Firefox 61.0.2

In the pics you can see the new hijacked links...

PM me with the email address change, so I can update that for you.

Once that is done we can work on a password change if needed.

Need admin assistance? Post here so we can help you!
