I am running Firefox on Windows 7. On a number of sites the icon box to the left of the current URL gets an icon that is circular with the cardinal points of a compass like figure. A dialogue box appears emanating from that icon and asks the user if he/she wants to share hs/her location with s0.2mdn.net? I cannot get rid of this and think it is adware.

I have tried everything I can find to stop bing.vc from opening as the start page in firefox version 39 and so far nothing has worked. I am unable to find any reference to in in about:config; a refresh of firefox did not help; no add-ons refer to it and conduit or search protect do not appear in uninstall programs in control panel. No malware removal tool has any effect on it and I have used all that were recommended on the Mozilla support site. Help please!!

I've got a cache problem that's probably a simple fix but driving me crazy, I open a browser, any browser like firefox or internet explorer etc.. and all have the same problem, first time it searches fine, and any more searches on that same page work fine, but if i open a new tab or close and reopen the browser i get no search results at all unless i clear the cache only for firefox or the temporary internet files and website file option in internet explorer, then click home page and i can search again, but opening a new tab or closing and reopening browser causes same issue to return every time. i have tried everything from flushing dns and renew and release ect. to reinstalling browsers and i even reinstalled windows in the end :( but even then with nothing installed but windows and basic motherboard drivers installed it still did it, the only other thing i had installed was avg zen which i now removed and use avira instead. i have also checked for disk errors and memory errors.. any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I was having issues with pop-up adds on a select few websites and was a bit concerned i had inadvertently downloaded some adware or other malware. So i ran a local scan with ESET and looked around for methods to remove malware that may or may not have been present. One of the posts i found (i cant find it now >.<) said to check add-ons for anything unusual and to hit "Refresh Firefox" after removing them. I saw only AdblockPlus so i hit 'Refresh Firefox'

Its after that point that i immediately had issues obtaining certificates for almost every website, it didnt matter that i had been using it fine 10 minutes ago. But even if i added an exception the website would only load as raw text, no video, no images (i tried to upload a picture but its not letting me for some reason). at this point i installed chrome (which works fine) and tried reinstalling Firefox (probably not a good idea in hindsight), which did nothing noticeable to solve the issue.

At this point I've done everything suggested here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can

Hi everyone,

Recently I was cleaning some malware/viruses/spyware/worms and all other nasty files located on hard drive of computer. Actually I still have them but this is NOT the purpose of my message. The problem is that I lost everything in Firefox. All my bookmarks that I cannot live without are gone. ALL. Each and every bookmark is gone. Saved passwords are gone. Addons are gone. Online banking certificate is gone. Also when I click CTRL T to add new tab in same window I get extremely annoying squares (3 lines and each line with 5 squares) which are graphically showing websites I have visited. Please if someone could help me to get everything back, particularly bookmarks are extremely important.

I tried to do three possible tasks but neither of them worked.

TASK ONE:

Usage of about:<wbr>profiles command in address bar but it is reporting error message saying The address isn't valid.

TASK TWO (consisting of multiple steps):

step 1: finding old firefox profiles I could manage to find. I hope they are NOT all otherwise I am in huge trouble. Hopefully something was overlooked and you will see why in upcoming steps.

step 2: clicking Open menu icon on the left hand side of firefox consisting of three horizontal lines and click Open Help Menu icon and then click Troubleshooting Information

step 3: clicking about:profiles in section Application Basics. Here I then added every single profile I am aware of via button Create A New Profile

step 4: for each of profile I got listed, I clicked on Launch profile in new browser and my bookmarks, together with other settings (online banking certificate, saved passwords, addons,...) were NOT ( !!! ) there. In neither of profile. I pray that I overlooked some saved profile...

TASK THREE:

Bookmarks menu\Show All Bookmarks\Import And Backup\Restore. However, In this submenu Restore there is nothing to be restored.

Someone please help me as I really need to get, particularly but not only bookmarks, back.

Waiting extremely anxiously for your reply...

Thank you in advance a billion times!

I am using Spectrum Security Suite as an anti-virus on my Mac. OS 10.10.5 I get an alert saying I need to install an extension for Firefox called Browser Protection. I already contacted Spectrum and they can't help. I uninstalled and reinstalled the antivirus suite. They said to contact you or use a different browser. I don't want to use a different browser. The alert comes with the option of installing this extension, but when I click "install", nothing happens. Nothing is installed. Yes, I unlocked the lock so allow an install.

Using Windows 7 64bit. Firefox opens and runs a separate page in the background. The extra page does not open and the only way to see it is to open ctrl/alt/delete and that is the only way to close it but I have to go to processes to close it, it will not close in applications. Today Firefox a page loaded in the background before I opened my FF browser. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox twice to no avail. I have removed all themes - nothing. Please help me fix this, I have used Firefox for years and love it but this latest mess is causing my computer to overload its ram and loading too many temp files.

There's this deceptive site that suddenly opens a tab on my browser... a pop up message appears telling me that my computer is infected by a virus and that I have to contact a certain number and it won't allow me to close the tab or the browser . I have to shutdown the computer each time. I then restart and open a private browsing window and delete the history. It works temporarily. But every few weeks or days, it comes up again and has become so annoying. Is there a way to block it from Firefox?

When I go to info Fox News, another account that says Fox comes up first. I have twice clicked by accident and both times a screen says a virus has been introduced to capture all computer entry and sent worldwide. It gives a number to call to pay for release. I shut down, bring back up, and then run security without finding anything. This could be, or maybe is, a great problem. The site is listed as link hidden by moderator

I seem to be infected with some piece of malware/virus that keeps replacing my homepage and inserting a web address into my list of search engines. This is what gets inserted in both areas:

https://goto-searchitnow.global.ssl.fastly.net/v1/hp?aid=189&data=aWlkPTIwJnVpZD00MDc0NzQ2NA==&tb=1

Does anyone recognize it and how can I block or delete it permanently.

I'm also getting a "Close All Tabs" alert periodically (that keeps popping up after each attempt to cancel it) even though I've made no attempt to close out of Firefox.

After dealing with Advanced Mac Cleaner virus recently, I hope I don't have another battle on my hands.

According to my options dialog, Google is my default search engine. However, when I type any text in the address bar, the browser uses Yahoo to perform the search. Every answer I see tells me to go to "options" and change the default to Google, but Google is already set as the default.

I want the address bar default search enfine to be Google.

Why does the pop blocker information bar disappear immediately and a box pops us saying that you have pop ups blocked and you need to disable this or some 800 number for assistance? Why would would describe in your help section to allow exceptions from the information bar, when the information bar doesn't work or isn't allowed to be used? Seems really dumb to tell people your product works in a way it doesn't. Is it really too difficult to add a function to automatically load web pages into the exceptions group when a pop up is blocked?

I am running MAC OS 10.10.5 with Firefox 40.0.3. Signed up my wife for Swagbuck; however, now everytime I click the “+” to add a new window it open at “search.swagbucks.com/?f=5” and not the window showing previously sites that i Have pinned. Now I did go into “extensions” removed the Swagbuck.com extension; went to preferences and changed homepage to the window i want and I did change the search engine to google and deleted “swagbucks” search engine and then I restarted Firefox. With all this I still get “search.swagbucks.com/?f=51“ whenever I click “+” to add a window.

I NEED HELP in getting rid of this annoying, in my opinion, “MALWARE”

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello,

I visited the website http:// y2mp3 .cc to convert a Youtube video into mp3.

I must mention that I did not agree to install anything from that website.

Then I started noticing adware messages mentioned to be from y2mp3.

I restarted Firefox in safe mode but saw nothing unusual.

This is an attack on firefox.

I want to remove this adware, I want that website mentioned as dangerous, and I want a security update.

Looking forward to actions and answers.

Regards
