I seem to be infected with some piece of malware/virus that keeps replacing my homepage and inserting a web address into my list of search engines. This is what gets inserted in both areas:

https://goto-searchitnow.global.ssl.fastly.net/v1/hp?aid=189&data=aWlkPTIwJnVpZD00MDc0NzQ2NA==&tb=1

Does anyone recognize it and how can I block or delete it permanently.

I'm also getting a "Close All Tabs" alert periodically (that keeps popping up after each attempt to cancel it) even though I've made no attempt to close out of Firefox.

After dealing with Advanced Mac Cleaner virus recently, I hope I don't have another battle on my hands.

I don't know what changed, but in the last 2-3 days, when I bookmark a page, it automatically gets sent to the "Other Bookmarks" folder. IT DIDN'T USED TO DO THIS. Normally a small popup shows where I can specify the folder, bookmark name, and tags. Now I have to select command-D again, where it now says "Edit this bookmark", and change the location to where I wanted it in the first place. EXTREMELY ANNOYING.

I haven't done any FF updates, added any extensions, or messed with any system or css files.

Any thoughts on how this changed, or what I can do to fix? I briefly tried the "Default Bookmark Folder" add-on, but it doesn't help. Running FF 63.0.1 on a Mac

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I am using Firefox 63.0.1 with Roboform V8 addon. The addon creates a toolbar at the bottom of the page. The problem now is, that the Roboform bar hides the status panel at bottom left corner. Is it possible to move the status panel to the left or right top corner?

Thank you in advance!

Drop-down lists or choice lists in boxes on web pages do not work on my latest release of Firefox. They worked before. I called the help desk of one web service I subscribe to and they said to use Internet Explorer -- that their site didn't work with the latest version of Firefox. That makes no sense to me. I set the Permissions to allow pop-up windows but that didn't help. Is there a setting in the new content blocker that is causing this? Help!

Cannot access passwords; cannot remake passwords

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance

I used to run Firefox without problem but lately had been using Safari. Wanted to get back to Firefox last week and downloaded the newest version. Since then I can't start Firefox; it crashes on start-up every time. I'm on a Mac, OS 10.12.6 (Sierra). I'm not especially techy but I have tried safe-start and a clean start with no success. Did submit crash reports, the last one about 10 minutes ago (Crash ID: bp-18a0ccaa-1f9e-4478-ada4-3ea8d0181109). If someone could help, that would be great. I am really fed up with Safari :(. Thanks in advance.

I have a new computer and I had previously saved a backup of the files of my Firefox profile. I followed the steps in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles but it didn't work, none of my settings or bookmarks are in place. The backup profile had a different name so I copied the contents and I used the default profile that was created instead of creating a new one. Why didn't it work? Does it matter that I'm using the same profile from the backup on a different new computer as well?

Firefox version 63.0.1 on Windows PC. This week, Firefox is slow to load all web pages. After pressing enter in the address bar or clicking a link, approximately 3-5 seconds will elapse before any page information is displayed. During this time, the bouncing ball is in motion where the favicon is usually displayed on the tab next to the page title. Then the page will visually load very quickly, while the bouncing ball continues for another 3-5 seconds before indicating the page load is complete.

This happens consistently on all webpages. The same behavior is observed in Firefox safe mode. Chrome loads pages without delay on this computer. This is a relatively new behavior which I've noticed within the past week. I'm on a 100Mb/s connection with very low latency and a fast DNS response (< 5 ms).
