How can I remove a software bug that impacts Firefox on my Mac Air?

Posted

Symptoms are that pages and tabs are created when I do things like press links and invoke other actions with my cursor. The most common page that opens up has as part of the name 360daily. Tabs that open up always seem related to the tab I had just invoked some action with.

Presently, I am running Version 67.0.1 (64 bit) on my Mac Air though I have had the problem before installing new versions (at least twice). This has gone on for I think over a year anyway.

That sounds more like a malware install then something from the Browser itself. You might need to search online to see what that software is and what it does and if it is something else others might have posted help on that.Otherwise if not then you need to go to your add/remove (talking from Windows) to remove that program if it is listed in the installed software location and remove it. Otherwise your going to have to take it to a computer shop to remove it.
