Websites since this morning load only random text - see attached. Somehow gmail worked while everything else didnt, so I manage to send myself via the phone a direct download link for chrome. Since then gmail has also crashed. The only website that I found working so far that loads is https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/ I am on the beta FF update channel and my version is 78.0b4 Cleared the cache but it did not resolve anything. Any ideas what could be causing this? Chrome runs obviously fine and avg found no obvious threats. Thank you so much for your help!

Hello,
Lately scammers have been posting   (mainly in threads where no reply has been posted yet),   claiming to be Mozilla experts and asking users to either call a so-called toll-free phone number or giving them a link to a site, where they are promised to get expert help.
These posts of course are scams.
Hopefully informing you about this will scare them off and you won't see such scam post.
