Dose Fierfox bookmark have advertisement function?

Posted

Sometimes when i restarted my browser, some unknown bookmarks showed on my bookmark bar, and i have never seen them. They are added to my bookmark automatically, and all of them are ads. I dont konw if Fierfox browser has commercial ads? But i dont like the way that the ads could be added to my bookmark bar so easily.

Hi, we definitely do not add ads to your bookmarks toolbar.

This sounds like you either have a malicious add-on installed (check via the three-bar menu -> Add-ons), or there's some other adware/malware on your machine that is injecting bookmarks onto the toolbar.

What sort of ads are they? If you find the source, please can you let us know so that we can take a look at what is going on.
