how to disable lexity from blanking screens?

When I access the bandconditions.com main page it updates the screen every ten minutes or so. But there is a thing called "lexity" which blanks the screen after what it thinks is some number of minutes of non-use. Actually the screen is used but only to read what it says, not with any input from me. Not only does this malware have this unwanted effect but it bloats the 2kbytes transmission with an additional 4kbytes of very much unwanted javascript.

I realize I probably prevent the (Yahoo owned) server from sending this malware but I should at least be able to spot that it is unwanted javascript and throw it away thus not blanking the screen and wasting my time waiting for a screen refresh when I do need it.

So it there an addon that specifically targets lexity (and preferably other nuisanceware)?

I use a web-based data entry form every day. Prior to the most recent update, I could type in 3-4 letters of a client name to search for that client. This allowed me to go directly to a client quickly.

After the update I can only type in one letter to search and then have to scroll through 100-200 other client names to get to the proer client.

Is there a way to set the default on these drop down menus to allow for more than 1 character to be searched?

My time spent has gone from 10 seconds per entry to about 30 seconds per entry and I have about 100 entries a week to make, so I am much less efficient.

Please HELP!!!!

Firefox was having a hard time connecting to Google docs, sheets, and slides, saying "Connecting" or "Reconnecting." Then whenever a connection was established it was very slow, it couldn't keep up with everyone else on the doc, and the connection would drop constantly.

Now I've resolved this by going to

Options > Advanced > Network > (Connection) Settings... > No Proxy

This has fixed the issue for now but it's unclear how effective it's going to be with other users on the doc because I haven't had sufficient time to test it all out yet.

I made this post to help others find this solution because there's nothing online that directly relates to solving this problem with Firefox.

I hope it helps.

Здравствуйте ! Прежде всего хочу заметить, что у Вас чудовищно громоздкий и неудобный способ входа в техническую поддержку. Меня не интересуют готовые ответы на вопросы, которые я не задавал. У меня свои есть. Также мне непонятно, почему мои пароли периодически слетают с Вашего браузера, а мне браузер сообщает, что я забыл пароль. Уважаемые ! У меня все пароли записаны. Это не я их забыл, это вы их забыли. Теперь к делу. После простоя моего компьютера у меня с вашего браузера слетел весь список моих закладок. Я вошел в Синхронизацию, но это совершенно ничего не дало- список закладок пуст, хотя в настройках Синхронизации стоят все галочки, т.е. должно синхронизироваться все. Зачем мне Синхронизация, которая ничего не синхронизирует ? И как мне восстановить список моих закладок ?

Starting yesterday when I turn on my computer, or after it has been in use for some hours, totally unexpectedly, unasked for, suddenly a commercial comes on, a speaking voice with background music - it can interrupt whatever is already going on, is not identified in any way, no accompanying images, and therefore of course how can I get rid of it?

Every time I'd open a new tab, my download manager would pop open asking to save an mp3 file. The mp3 file was from a web site that would automatically start playing the music anytime you went to it's home page. <insert long story of chasing numerous ways of clearing cache files and stored settings that didn't work> Yes, a new profile (devoid of any important saved information) worked. But that wasn't a solution, just an avoidance. ... The solution: My new tabs were configured to show my top sites. By sheer luck I happened to notice the source web site of this mp3 file being displayed within my top sites. Clicking the X to remove that site solved the issue.

My printer was configured the other day and it wasn't me. The way of gaining access was through the lrpc which is remote procedure account. I have been being hacked to the point where they have access to my computer as much as I do or even more with the ability to lock me out of programs and even the internet. So I was informed lrpc has a security issue and told me to go to a microsoft account to get an update. I know this site is legit yet I get an error message that it can't connect to https://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/ site to secure this vulnerability. The hacking I have no idea what to do about but what could be causing an error message to a legit site from mozilla? Any ideas on how to deal with a hacker who has the ability to shut down my windows firewall and make it so I can't access the settings to turn it back on? The hacking is brushed off by everyone as malware but I have seen things done to my computer that I had no idea a hacker could even do. I even have reason to believe they are downstairs neighbors but I can't prove anything and the police do not seem to be able to help. They say they will do their best but they don't even know when another hacking problem happens. Is there anyway to stop this? The FBI or Microsoft itself. The hacking seems to be malicious attempts and doesn't seem to have an objective of any kind.

Hello.

My internet is pretty unsafe and I decide to gain some security. I have a few questions:

1. How to disable "permanently store this exception" option for all invalid certificates? This can be archived by using private mode, but I want it in normal browsing.

2. How to force block any website that have certification issues, that is, making user cannot bypass the warn just by press "confirm security exception" button? I feel that option leave user too easy to get into a dangerous site. I don't even consider that a serious issue before, until I actually visit a hijacked site, and Firefox tries to protect me by that "inconspicuous" and easy-to-bypass warning.

3. It seems there's many problems with WoSign and StartCom CAs, so should I just distrust them in the Firefox setting?

Thanks.

My screen keeps freezing and distorting images and text - see attached.

This happens on multiple websites but always seems to occur when scrolling to the latter end of the page. It's almost like its a buffering issue but the broadband speed is good and this doesn't happen when using other web browsers.

I have tried completely uninstalling FireFox and reinstalling but it still hasn't fixed the issue.

Any ideas?

Installed Test Pilot yesterday at end of session. Today, Firefox has started to open empty web pages - from what should be cashed content (as these pages are frequently opened) and instead of fetching "new" data, it simply stops and does nothing ?! This obviously never happened before I installed the test pilot gizmo - or I would have addressed it then - so WHY has it started to do this now ?! Is this a known issue that others have also noted, is it a 'bug', could it be that other installed programs (eg., Anti-Virus et al) see the new addition as malware and are restricting access somehow ? Any answers out there please ?!
