Javascript injection spamming after last update

Posted

Firefox auto updated yesterday for me and immediately afterwards I've been getting javascript injecting spams that is slowing down my machine noticeably. In addition I can no longer use firebug or inspect element due to this spamming.

I have run every virus scan I have from boot up and nothing was found, so the firefox update is the only thing I can think of as the cause.

Here is the spam that just goes on and on, how can I fix this?

That seems related to the Abine "DoNotTrackMe" product, potentially as supplied through their partnership with ZoneAlarm (Check Point). Could you double-check that you have the latest version? To update extensions, you can try this:

Open the Add-ons page using either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons

In the left column, click Extensions. Then find the "gear" button above the list and "Check for Updates".

If it continues to behave strangely, you may need to disable the extension and seek support from the publisher (whichever one you have a relationship with).

This was indeed the problem. I was up to date with the zonealarm extension and so the problem wasn't resolved by checking for updates, but disabling the addon fixed it.

Thank you for the assistance.
