Pop up scams wont let me close them

Posted

Some scams sites are open and won't let me close the window or tab, because they open a box saying: A username and password are being requested by(site). As soon as i get it again i will take picture and update the post

You may have ad / mal-ware. Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.


If it's like the fake FBI/Interpol browser lock page, This add-on can stop such pages; disallow Script Button {web link} The Disallow Script button looks like a letter "M" and the title is the Minus Script, drag and drop the button on a toolbar. If the button is not displayed then nothing operates, except rules for plugins.

I can't tell, but that doesn't look right to me. Have you used the malware article?

I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck.

thanks, i have a kasperky i scan at least once a week, i don't think is a malware, but a scam website with the log in spamming just to annoy/ scare and/or scare the user. I just want to know if Mozilla has any option to prevent this type of login to pop up or at least to block it from certain sites.
