Did you authorize EasyPDFCombine by myway to impose itself as firefox's home page?

Posted

When I clicked on firefox's full screen popup to install firefox's 51.0.1 upgrade a second small popup representing itself as mozilla firefox said that I should install something called EasyPDFCombine by myway on firefox as my home page. I first ignored this second popup and just clicked on the firefox install button to install the upgrade for firefox, and in so doing nothing happened; i.e., this EasyPDFCombine popup appears to have blocked or prevented the upgrade installation. I then went back to the EasyPDFCombine popup and clicked on it to OK its installation and then again I clicked on firefox's install button; which at this time then the upgrade appeared to install. Which at the time appeared to be OK. Later I discovered I could not, that is, was not allowed to change my homepage to firefox. Moreover, I discovered that the EasyPDFCombine program was not even listed on my computer so that it could not even be uninstalled.

It appears that EasyPDFCombine is clearly a form of malware operating under the guise of Mozilla's Firefox program. This therefore is definitely a matter that Mozilla and Firefox must concern itself and look into.

PS: My operating system is Windows 7.

That was an ad, not part of Mozilla. Remove it if you don't want it.

Mozilla nor the Firefox web browser has anything to do with EasyPDFCombine or any other questionable things like it.
