It is best to use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot and make sure that you do not exceed a maximum file size of 1 MB.
Then use the Browse .... button below the Post a Reply text box to upload the screenshot.
Please see below.
Go to the
Mozilla Add-ons Web Page
(There’s a lot of good stuff here)
and look for a good add / pop-up blocker.
How many malware programs did you use? Run several of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
All these programs have free versions.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.
