I have been trying to undo a hacking problem for quite a while. I am using Kaspersky Cloud Security, looking for unusual (hard to really say what that is) network and app activity and making apps ask before running or using the network. I saw an event reported by K that had a bunch of versions of various browsers, one of which was Safari that I never have used. I asked them but then realized that was just something that edge or K tacked on to identify somethnig else.

However, I did notice that Chrome was being used, apparently by edge, as my browser. My understanding is that chrome is used a lot by hackers for various things. I'd rather not use it. That's why I installed Firefox.

So I did a search of my pc for "chrome" and up came the thing in the title of this question: ChromExtMalware.store. I was fairly surpised that it would actually be called that. But I did find by searching the web that it's malware.

beyond that, several other things came up, chrome.nm-server-v2.manifest.json, same thng without the v2, plugins.chrome.manifest.

So apparently I not only use edge but chrome.

Can anyone tell me whether I simply do not understand how this is all structured and its all fairly safe, or, if it lookw like i'm right nd something is fishy, is there reason to imagine that Firefox will make it easier to control these things?

thanks for taking a moment to look this over. I really do need some guidance, so if you are willing but you need more info, please reply and request it.

Note: The image and issue, if the image uploads, is not on this PC. It is on my Microsoft Surface. This machine has problems as well, but I haven't not see that here - yet. So the shared configuration is for this pc.

I am part of a charity organisation which is using Google Drive to store records in the "cloud" and a means of multiple members accessing those files. A form has been created which needs a date to be entered. The form was created by another person with a drop down calendar or by entering the date using dd/mm/yyyy. When I open the form through Google Drive on my computer using Firefox (my browser of choice)the drop down calendar does not operate and the date is formatted MM/DD/YYYY. Through "Options" on the home page the language is set to English (Great Britain) and the date is said to be taken from my Windows settings. My Windows settings for the date formatting are correct at dd/mm/yyyy. If I change browsers to Chrome the form is accessible with its correct formatting. Your assistance would be appreciated

Speed tests shows normal uploads on Firefox and Edge but on Firefox only downloads show 0.0

Good evening. I have run the Ookla speed test through Edge and my download is 212.94 Mbps and my upload is 11.76 Mbps and uses the Spectrum Syracuse Server. Running Spectrum speed test on Edge registers Spectrum Syracuse as the optimum server and download is 236.2 and upload 11.6. Both are using my Spectrum server in Syracuse, NY.

When I run Ookla through Firefox I got 227.17 down and 11.63 up. Spectrum's speed test through Firerefox's Syracuse server 231.8 up and 11.5 down.

However for a while earler this evening when I ran both programs on both browsers and both through Syracuse's servers I was getting downs of 0.0 to 0.7. I reset the modem and router and still had low speeds but shortly after I got the readings I wrote in the first two paragraphs.

What would be the reason for this? Anything particular with Firefox? Something I should look out for in the future? Partially a curiosity while the other part being proactive.

Thanks for anybody who can take time to answer.

A while back I noticed that when loading any one of my sites in Firefox, the URL changes itself from http https which causes the non-secure sites to crash. This is a major problem for me that makes my sites all but inaccessible to please advise what to do to stop it, preferably at the server level so that visitors to the sites won’t have to fuss with it individually!

I'm running Windows 10 on a Surface Pro like device (it's a Vaio Canvas). I have a bluetooth keyboard that is always connected, but I often just use it as a tablet. I've tried disconnecting the physical keyboard but I still get the same behaviour.

Using touchscreen, I select a text box (or URL bar/search box etc), normally the On-screen Keybard (OSK) comes up and lets me type. Right now, with FF it pops up and then promptly disappears.

This makes FF completely unusable using touchscreen/tablet mode. I have switched to using chrome on this device - I've tested other browsers too and none exhibit this behaviour. Could it be my settings?

Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.

I use Win 10 Pro. If I want to copy something - a document or site address or use any other control in the menu, sometimes the menu options appear and sometimes they don't. Sometimes nothing happens and I have to hit Esc several times to get a program or menu selection to work. Occasionally, I even have to reboot. I seldom use other browsers but when I do, they don't seem to have a problem. I'm thinking of resetting Firefox but I'm concerned about everything I'll lose. I've tried to simply update my browser but it doesn't help. Suggestions?

Redirect via onafterprint working in Chromium but not Firefox

I am trying to serve a print view and redirect the user to the page they came from right after printing (or cancelling). This works fine in Chromium with the following bit of JavaScript code:

  function printPageAndRedirectTo(redirectUrl) {
   window.addEventListener("afterprint", function () {
       window.location.href = redirectUrl;
   });
   window.print();

In Firefox, however, nothing happens at all. Debugging shows that the callback is called, but the href field remains unchanged.

This is mysterious to me. Any ideas what the reason might be?

Firefox version is 84.0.2, Chromium 87.0.4280.88 (both from the Arch Linux repositories).

Edit:

Here's a fiddle to illustrate. Redirect to Wikipedia works in Chromium but not in Firefox: https://jsfiddle.net/xnazLb6p/1/

Edit 2:

Another one to show that the problem here is redirecting from the event listener, not redirecting itself: https://jsfiddle.net/xnazLb6p/2/
