My screen was hijacked by something lacked look like Mozilla/Firefox heading saying it was taking a survey and I couldn't get out of the screen. So I took the survey and entered my credit card info for a sum of $1.00 (one dollar) for a chance to win an iPhone. Instead I got a charge on my credit card from lstfl.com for $33.+ dollars saying it enrolled me in a sex site. That is NOT what I imagined. And it came under Mozilla/Firefox name. Can you go after this site as it is operating under your name and logo. Thank you

why is Firefox opening to various websites on it's own in windows 10?

I leave my Windows 10 laptop on all the time, on power, and I know I close Firefox down when I am finished with it. I have no screensaver, and simply have a blank screen timeout set. Yet, every morning when I hit a key or move my mouse, Firefox is already open to some website I've never heard of, let alone visited. one example is this: https://com.com/results?q=pureleisurefun

It is acting as if I had done a search for this, which I know I didn't. I have looked in the forum, but haven't seen any solution to this issue, which is more annoying than anything else. I use Norton360 and is all up to date, and nothing shows up with regards to this. I also previously got rid of the "Recent Highlights", but this still persists.

Every now an then, since about a year ago, when I try to open a link from Google search results in FF, a web-page appears instead in the form of a virus (but it's not) with a popup window saying "Dear Firefox user, You are our lucky visitor ..." After that, I have to restart FF, otherwise this "thing" goes on. This last time I copied the URL (unfortunately, I didn't take a screenshot!), which was http://vacationdestination.org/maintenance/-/price/-/Deal848. However, it seems it's a fake one, since I could not open it again. (not even just 'http://vacationdestination.org'). I have done a virus check and nothing was detected. Also, opening FF in safe mode doesn't help, since as I said this "thing" is quite occasional and *not repeatable*. I would like please to know if someone has had *the same exact problem* and has solved it. Please don't reply by giving general suggestions like "open in safe mode", "do a virus scan" etc.

Among other things (popup login windows, etc), Firefox won't show CAPTCHA images even after a fresh install with all default settings. I tried cleaning my computer with the recommended spyware / adware removal programs (AdwCleaner and Kapersky) and one of them did the trick for about an hour, but then Firefox went back to not showing the CAPTCHAs again. Is there a permanent fix for this?

I cleared my browsing history and have the weather network as my home page. I updated Firefox and now the homepage seems to be a list rather than a web page, PLUS, I get a Google ad on it. Google then forces several steps to kill the ad and clicking on any of the Weather network page hotlinks brings another Google ad. I have Google Chrome also installed, but am not using it. Why is all this happening?

I run the Firefox browser, and ESET Security under Windows 10. My problem is I get what appear to be Russian popups when visiting sites such as Allrecipes.com and Foodnetwork.com. I did a screen capture showing a popup and can send.

If I visit the above sites in a “private” window, I do not receive the popups. Can someone explain why this happens?

I have run the various Malware removal tools recommended by Mozilla (Thanks) : • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Free ,• SuperAntispyware Portable Scanner,• Microsoft Safety Scanner ,• Anti-Rootkit Utility - TDSSKiller ,and • AdwCleaner.

I've never had a problem with Firefox until recently and this is starting to get on my nerves. My problem is yahoo.

Yahoo keeps showing up as my home page. I go into the settings and I fix it. It doesn't last, and before you know it. Yahoo. It sometimes loads itself as my preferred search bar, as well. Under settings where you can add your own homepage, mine keeps resetting to this: http://searchinterneat-a.akamaihd.net/hm?eq=U0EeCFZVBB8SRggQc1oNWF8VQBgWdwkJTA0QGAAOeFsAU RRHFlcVcQlcVwpHRAMFIk0FA18DB0VXfWFoKB8fHGZGIUtbCXcUVmJKLl1XFg== Which brings me to yahoo. There is also an ad-on that shows up occasionally. I don't know if it is related, I keep disabling/removing it. But it comes back, too.

I've searched and have tried everything. I'm using Windows 10, on a brand new computer. I've tried changing the settings {constantly}. I've tried looking into the properties after right clicking the firefox icon {but there was nothing wrong with that part}. I have even tried refreshing Firefox. That did nothing. I've done some scans and I'm not finding anything

I'm getting rather frustrated. I love Firefox but I'm not going to continue to use it if this doesn't go away. I use this computer for work and I need something that is reliable.

~ thanks

When I open Mozilla, an advert pops up, instead of my home page. I have installed ad bloc, so no other adverts pop up, but when I open Mozilla, the random adverts that look like a virus (about winning i-phones etc) are always there. I have scanned my PC for viruses, and it says it has no viruses. I've also checked my control panel, and I have no programmes that seem unfamiliar or that I have there for a specific purpose. I have also refreshed my Firefox, and the problem is still there. I have checked add-ons as well, and there is only Ad Bloc.

when we open chrome we do not have this problem...so this avg.com must be attached to Firefox not my computer.

Yes I already tried the keyword search bla bla bla, I tried deleting and redownloading as well. I don't understand why people use Yahoo, probably the worst search engine out there...

I tried everything on the internet and still it uses yahoo as the search engine. The worst part is when I try to use yahoo, it gives me bullshit sites that I've never dreamed clicking on, I work as a GM at a hotel, and it really does not help that I'm using the same search engine as my grandmother.

Aside from being incapable of completing searches relevant to your query, Yahoo! And Microsoft work together. That should tell you what maximum quality output you're going to get some such an un-evolved, unintelligent search engine.

Yahoo must be the most stupid search engine ever. Yeah, Google for life indeed!...


Bing is bad, but by God Yahoo is by far the WORST!
