my internet supplier, ( bezeq ) hijacks my browser, only way to get it back is a restart
on my Linux (Ubuntu 14.4) that is used by my wife, my internet supplier - BEZEQINT, keeps hijacking the firefox browser. The only way to get rid of the damn thing is to restart the system, ... this helps till the next time, usually about an hour later. It is more of an adv. that is annoying, and until you fill in your details incl. email and tel. you can not do anything. she refuses to give her tel no for fear of fraud. The only option I have is to restart the system. PLS HELP !!

Having more than one version of a program may cause issues. You must remove the older programs. Then get the current full installer.
Note: Edge on Win10 does not use ActiveX version but its own Flash.
Then reinstall the latest version.

Type about:addons<enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; <Control>(Mac=<Command>)<Shift> A)
In the Add-ons Manager, on the left, select Extensions. Remove BEZEQINT Anything. Now do the same in the computers Programs Folder.
Windows: Start > Control Panel > Uninstall Programs. Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. Linux: Check your user manual.
Also look for anything that you don't know what it is or does. Use a web search on anything you find.
