Hi tyler456, I agree the Norton extensions would not cause this problem.

"reset firefox" may get rid of it (or it may come back, waiting to see if it's hiding out past a reset).

This thing apparently used to be fairly easy but I see more and more mentions of it being very tenacious, I think it's changing how it behaves. No idea how it got onto our home computers.

PS somebody recommended "blocksite" ---- read the reviews, one says:


SPYWARE ALERT DO NOT DOWNLOAD Rated 1 out of 5 stars

by lukenxn1234 on March 6, 2014 · permalink · translate

Total BS, hadnt added anything to my addons in 6months, then after updating FF, this thing shows up with its WIPS page every time i load the browser, then adds insult by blocking pages if you decline to participate. SPYWARE ALERT. do not download and check registry to make sure it isnt STILL accessing your info after uninstalling
