Firefox is showing malicious activity when I log into our webmail on cox and Earthlink. Why? When I run my Security program it shows no threats.

This happens when we use Firefox. It does not happen on Google Chrome. Why am I being blocked on Firefox. What can I do? My Security Software says that their are no threats.

I noticed you have a Webroot filtering extension. Can you tell whether the warning is coming from that extension, or from Firefox itself? It would be helpful if you could post the specific wording of the message, or a screen shot showing it. This article has tips on screen shots: How do I create a screenshot of my problem?

To test how Firefox handles the site without the extension active, you could manually disable it on the Add-ons page. Either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a
  • orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons

In the left column, click Extensions. You may need to restart Firefox in order for the change to take effect. You may need to use History > Restore Previous Session after that to get back to where you were.
