Hello, Microsoft Defender did a scan tonight and apparently detected a trojan script, located in the folders for Firefox extensions for both profiles I use on my computer

Trojan description: Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml

Files: C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[default profile]\extensions\langpack-fr@firefox.mozilla.org.xpi C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[second profile]\extensions\langpack-fr@firefox.mozilla.org.xpi

This scan happened at 9pm, and a previous scan at 6pm didn't show anything. When it detected the script, MS Defender contained it and apparently deleted it when it asked me to restart the computer, I then did a full offline scan and nothing else showed up, same with a full scan with the free version of Malwarebytes. I didn't do anything unusual between 6pm and 9pm, so I'd like to know if there's a way to determine whether that script was an actual threat (instead of a false alarm)? If so, any way to know how long it has been on my computer? Any further risks to take into consideration? Other steps to follow? Thanks for the help

Firefox was working well on HTTP websites until a few days ago, but now HTTPS-Only Mode seems to be permanent. Despite changing settings to 'Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode', when HTTP sites are selected I get the same message as for 'HTTPS-Only Mode'. Also, if I select 'Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows' and add exceptions, I get the same result.

Hello, I am finding that Firefox display incorrectly and out of sync the subtitles in streaming services like Hulu or Amazon Video. Subtitles dialogs appear around ten seconds before the actual audio plays that dialog. It doesn't occur when I am using Chrome.

Thanks.

Hi there! I am a long time Chrome user and decided to try Mozilla Firefox. I loved it and after a bit of tweaking, I run into a problem I can't deal with myself. In Chrome I loved auto fill options every time I needed the option for my home address, email address or credit card. In Firefox I just can't do it. The option is only available for Canada or SUA. Is there any way I can make it work? Of course, I looked for some add-ons and actually found several, but given the fact that auto-fill in my case deals with personal and sensitive data, I need a safer method. Is there any? Thank you!

Lately for the last 3ish days my YouTube connection speed on Firefox and only Firefox has been terribly slow. So slow that it can't even watch normal HD content. But not always, sometimes it does work at normal internet speeds which is so weird. I have around 500 Mbps download speed internet so I know it's not the issue. The picture with the slow download speed is on Firefox and the fast/normal download speed is on Chrome. Sometimes in a private window Firefox runs at normal speed but not always, I don't think it's an extension issue.

Hello! For some reason I can't add separate icons for extension quick menus to the address bar area and am only able to add the extensions "master" button which shows a list of extensions without going to the settings page. I've tried to go to customize toolbar to add the extension icons to the bar but none of them show up, and I know for a fact that the extensions have icons, I've added them to the bar on other computers.

After the Firefox update to 114.0.2 on my WIndows 10 desktop computer, the display of the Google Voice website became all garbled and vertical scrolling stopped working, making it impossible to read new next messages. My laptop, which has been turned off and has not taken the update, is still running the previous version and does not have the problem. I'm wondering if others have had the same issue.

Hello, I wanted to restore Firefox to start clean. I wanted anyway to reinstall my (few) extensions, all of which are safe and well known. When I do that, though, their icons don't show up in the toolbar. When I open the "customize toolbar" setting, extension icons aren't there. So there's no way to add them to toolbar.

I tried all possible methods: - "Restore Firefox" and resync my account (extensions are reinstalled but icons not shown in toolbar / customize toolbar) - "Restore Firefox", not syncing, and manually installing extensions (icons still not shown in toolbar / customize toolbar) - Uninstall Firefox, delete everything in Profiles folder, reinstall Firefox. Same behavior.

So, it seems it's something not related to a broken profile, since a fresh profile, with no syncing, does not fix the issue.

Any clue of what I could try? Thanks!

So I have the latest version of macOS Ventura, the latest version of Firefox, and the latest version of Roblox. Whenever I try to open a Roblox game from their website (yes, I know. Roblox now has the desktop app so you don't need the website to open a game), it opens the app, but not the link, which means it doesn't open the game :( Does anybody know how to get Firefox to open the link and not just the app? (Btw no hate on firefox)

My computer 'guru' reinstalled Win10 in order to correct a serious problem. ALL of my programs were gone and I was left with a raw Win10. 6/12/2023 was last date prior to the disaster. I reinstalled Firefox. Using the "firefox.exe -p" I can only find the default profile. I DO HAVE a full backup done using the Win7 Backup and Restore feature. How do I resurrect my most recent profile? I will need to find the files(s) manually from the b/u. When I did a Full Restore the bookmarks didn't appear. Where and what files am I looking for? The attached screen shots from the b/u may be of help. [removed email from public forum]
