Firefox wants me to open or save a php file. I can't delete request.

Posted

I do not know how this started but I keep getting this pop-up. I did click "open" and nothing happened. There is a red dot upper left. Pushing it closes the pop-up until I do something else. It has popped up while I an writing this.

"You have chosen to open as.php which is: PHP file (0 bytes) from: https:ads-us-rd.linksynergy.com

What would you like Firefox to do with this file?

Open with TextEdit Save file

Cancel OK" parrishh said

This started happening to me after updating to 69.0 and only happens on Yahoo's sites.

I contacted them and they told me to quit using Firefox. Please advise.

Hi Matt, sorry to hear about that.

It seems to be happening to more Mac users recently, judging from these new threads:

Firefox doesn't have a general purpose site blocker built-in, so if this can't be tracked down to a poorly working security filter, you could consider using an add-on (as discussed earlier in this thread) or possibly a hosts file entry to block requests to ads-us.rd.linksynergy.com (and/or any other relevant server).
