Performing any facebook actions (post, like, comment, ...) is redirected to the webpage https://www.facebook.com/ajax/ufi/modify.php "Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can. Go Back"

The big problem is that it is wrong since more than 2 months. And i have to use back IE only for fb.

Occurency : always Firefox version : up to date, now v15 Extension and plugins : default ones Conditions : brand new PC at work

For info, i have the same issue on my home PC since 3 months, since FF12 release, in this case with plugins protecting privacy. But even desactivated, it is not working. As a first contact, i posted related bug report in fb process, but i never had any reply since, neither one email to confirm bug report.


How to do, please?

I had a technician to clean and remove Babylon search from my computer and it still attached itself to whatever I'm doing. I uninstalled Mozilla fox at least five times , then re-installed. However, I cannot get rid of Babylon search. I spent $100 dollars to resolved this problem and it's not working. I handle high confidential files on my computer. I am afraid to open the file due to fear of information being compromised.

Please Help!!!

Every time I use the Flash plug-in (for videos on YouTube or PutLocker or whatever), FireFox just slows down a lot and even freezes. It happens very often now and it's really annoying.

By the way, I am using a gaming laptop so I am not sure why I am having these problems. My Flash plug-in and firefox are updated to the latest versions, too.

My brokerage requires Active X in order for Adobe Reader and Java to function. Without Active X neither work. After a lengthy session with their tech staff I was told to contact you or use IE. I hate IE. IE is the whole reason I got FF back when you folks first updated it to FF 0.7. That was in early '04. I haven't looked back. I HATE IE!

PLEASE DO NOT TELL ME TO USE IE.

If Active X is so bad, why does Google Chrome use it? Is it not a security thing but rather a licensing issue?

I updated java and ended up with snap.do as my search engine and home page. I researched it and found nothing good about it, a typical malware program that isn't picked up by CCleaner for some reason. It is easily uninstalled in chrome and IE but for some reason Firefox resists efforts to uninstall it. It doesn't show up in programs to uninstall, how can it be uninstalled along with all it's components and why does Firefox aid in its destructive methods by making its removal so difficult?

So essentially, it seems that somehow my PC has picked up a version of the Google redirect virus. It is only affecting Firefox, and it seems to be a bit stealthier than previous versions. Essentially, 70% of the time I try and click on a search result (only the first one clicked per search), it will redirect me to a php script on a different server. It seems the script analyzes what I searched and attempts to redirect me to a phishing site that has related information about my search e.g. realgamerz.net and other shady URLs. I assumed it was a registry issue, but despite using all of the below virus/malware scanners nothing has been found. Is it possible one of my plugins has been compromised and that it has something to do with the Firefox software/Firefox plugins? Your advice is much appreciated.

1) Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011 Professional 2) HijackThis 3) SuperAntiSpyware 4) Spybot S&D

If there are other recommended malware scanners you think I should try I would be happy to do so.

I recently updated to Firefox 15.0.1, and I'm having a lot of trouble with it constantly freezing. This doesn't happen on any one website and is very random in occurrence. I have already tried running in safe mode and updated flash, and I'm still having the problem. After a few seconds, it may start responding again however, most of the time it continues to hang. In order to close Firefox when this happens, I have to open task manager and end the process because nothing in the browser responds. This has become very annoying, and I would appreciate any help I can get to solve the issue. Thanks!

UPDATE: I've noticed that the freezing seems to happen every time I check my email (Yahoo & Gmail), and when I'm on Pandora. It still occurs randomly at other times, but I noticed it's very consistent with these sites.

I have tried reinstalling the Java Plugin for Firefox over and over and over again, but it says that I still need to install it when I go to a website that requires it. I made sure that the plugins page for Firefox says that it is enabled (which it is). Java works fine in IE for me, and Chrome. Firefox is the only browser where Java is not working.

Please help me, or I will be switching to a different browser. Thank you.

As of yesterday, I can't access gmail using Firefox. I can access all other websites (including other Google services), but not gmail. I just get the message:

"The page isn't redirecting properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I have tried reinstalling Firefox, emptying/deleting cache and cookies, disabling add-ons - basically every fix that I can find on the web, but no good! I can access gmail with no problems using Chrome and IE.

Any ideas?
