I found some infos but I do not trust myself just deleting the files in question since they ared all over my system. The following I found per malwarebytes which found the pups every day up to now:

PUP.Optional.DefaultSearch is Malwarebytes’ detection name for a family of browser hijackers targeting Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Symptoms The browsers’ default search engine was changed to one that belonged to the threat-actors. I am german so probably I need your patience in helping me to clean my system resp. Mozilla.

My computer's date and time are correct but Firefox is using the wrong time in all sites (I can't identify what timezone it is). It's a big problem in receiving notifications. I already did the suggested solutions stated in some posts in this site but it's still not working. Even adding an extension doesn't make it right.

Does Thunderbird 91.1.0 support OpenPGP signing/encryption with < 3072 bit RSA keys? I have successfully imported my 2048 bit RSA key but Thunderbird does not recognize my email as having any valid keys. My 2048 bit RSA key is a pgp key.

Furthermore, when I opt to generate a new key, the minimum bit length is 3072, so I am led to believe that < 3072 bit length is unsupported but have found no documentation to support this assertion.

Many thanks!

I just added the "Word Count" add-on. I am supposed to be able to select text on any site, right click and a notification will let me know the word count of the text.

Here is my problem: When I select text and right click, I see "Word Count" it as an option, but I don't get a notification when I click on it.

So far I have:

-disabled and enabled the add-on. -gone to the notification settings. I only see an option to add a website--no option to make an exception for an add-on. -restarted firefox and am using the latest version.

Also: I don't have any other add-ons.

Can you help me? Thanks!

I need to be able to temporarily disable my ad blocker: I keep getting popups saying that an ad blocker has prevented me from accessing a certain site, or that it's interfering with a site's fraud protection settings. I'm running Windows 10 and Windows Security, and also MalwareBytes...but neither of them appear to contain an ad blocker. Is it Firefox?

hello there i have the following problem the company i work for has unistalled remotely firefox from my laptop, and i do not have any way to re-install it back i have managed in some way to obtain a copy of portable firefox on the same laptop since i was not informed about this process, i have not saved my password externally and unfortunately, i was not using a firefox profile

in few words: i do not have my passwords anymore

i have seen that in such folder: C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

there are still saved three subfolders (one of them has the last modified date as 13th Sep, meaning today), therefore i think that my profile (and all relevant passwords) are still there somewhere

i would like to understand if and how i can import the passwords from the unistalled firefox in the portable firefox: i have already tried to copy those directories in: C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

but no success, passwords are not importyed. please, i need help

thanks.

Hi.

My internet banking site seems to not work with Firefox for Android.

It works fine with:

  • Firefox (Desktop)
  • Chrome (Android)

The page is:

https://login.anz.com/internetbanking

Just wondering where should I report this.

Firefox is not one of the bank's officially supported browsers , but given it works fine on Firefox Desktop, is it a problem with Firefox for Android?
