Just ran a search in the address bar and was taken to this "Firefox search contest 2020" page. Never happened before and I assume it's a scam, have checked my add-ons and plugins but I don't see anything suspicious. Is this something to be concerned about?

If helpful, the url for this page is: https://sweetrelxme16.live/2262313374/?utm_campaign=QPF8euu28II5lw7O2iHhCugVqK5RzfdNsTpLaMM91qY1&t=main9_f90c820c180a04261c8d0973930afd&f=1&fp=4e4lHv53VRFsZD7g8DH8cHoGoZqhKuVVuUJjMi0vd9MavAzv9Ra8r35cGpaMIxPQMRUMvVHb0l82DIdO3468J0I1IGraOutgrge%2Bq9NWJxSgTtCArhRG9wrtn5m01%2Bx0n3MmjZiSV6rdotDp1uZK3X%2FC73QNaXrVEwU6oP9mIPSfJK%2B9iUDEhYFO3CUB0gqNmsYjipzEBg99p%2B0M3CKQbwifntTBZHvPFeMpyKOWKE7SKgze%2FpKn5JZBWY3pSSBh4y1pXXC3eYKb2LhL2ZoH4%2BWQ9hbMgWcybfFg5BkLBtWg1kwuZsikClxevJtm60RKV7prd51JiGjLrzf%2FNTDqxdrpwU2A0t4hnMG%2FGjpBHkvqc7jsROicHRQJdXvl6Xw%2BK1B4QHr4OdFM%2BRtvtMIuVoWNw3847b%2Bz5EijdBw1lIcKWD54y5Ykl2UHIWkWE3GJ0k%2Boz0qwm%2Bjks2VWfUk1dLIjwzZZ67mP3%2BIlzBvpAGyhYi%2FWISpYwui97wQ8U53uQKjnBTYIz1WN5e6HZkKCRHJTfzo%2FYcUJhu%2Fk4HDS04VDapoV6VLpeDv4JHDFP3AcqH5EPLVv648vIOUc%2B27TQByyZx70ORGYyOztbMH6xU0v%2B%2FM6DLecFWnHAPkQ8X%2Fk1igvbBNx8cPPUGQOchdh9Y1Hc7nm%2F4mZ%2BHsCVI5oeT%2FX7TJ15lDFHvc7uVp7J61DCWuWlQdtwjhqXu7Ms0k45AQQwlDJe4XvNbuDOTcti8QfPQw0zMaHTsoH6KjWUiBG6Qlk5UE4apuslT%2BVS8%2FhGlqRo190rqmBhsp3GLn%2B%2FkX8eoNQBK5adrrme1vjyuDFwg3XB1E0E9FY5RGGQuCmS2NgJ5NY1epvc0bT8qUYVwoKESw3dxc0I8oaHXm8pjJotg8dJ9p18vFzQfENSQ1Lif%2FXLA3qsLDDGOeLC5KQwPTUDb%2Bbwt5MjbLFbi09eakKIqSw1T6jyb6AzUIbIYU9CobdiZXlqXR1faA65a%2Bb49rHlYpFMsmtVMGAZGJ6GRcpqgidhwUeEfDWptpsKYjjcWxDXhB3bu93CuigV8dR%2FobTpbwwGmyFCtClfyPoqFgQ57R83bMHQta0ufdOf5rN%2BN%2BUUcgassNy4H84lggSNKjX1Tfle8JYPE8P850TKT8zL0qRyVHs9cq5ng7k%2FQl3TB847FICfrcWLUcxAU5Ed5hGOBPMcjGbc1pABVRV9%2BIivKKTvd06vBei1U27t1QJnlPCRub9A1wI2MEwWlJijoNtXlXN1odzAUFPLHNLG%2B3OjI80qmpNeUJoxRmfUN%2B%2BohI9hbzBle58Ij9659u%2FRIvLRx5Cs96YiHAeFadW%2FDvWvDJh3TzYhc798ZMqiB4KIcFtttKF8siLLCWSmhOmvNl0xVlAZBjrv%2Bs7beWbDKa2

Besides the Google app button, the buttons next to it like the profiles picture and the notification button acts the same.

One day all those buttons just stopped working. I thought it was the version of Firefox but I updated it, downgraded it, tried several versions (pre and post quamtun), and all were complete clean setups, uninstalling and removing all the cache and profiles and whatnot. Nothing helped.

Google Keep and Gmail also acts strange. On top of the mentioned problem on the respective page, Keep is completely blank and many of the buttons on Gmail are missing. Despite them being invisible, some can still be clicked, others just don't respond at all.

It's fine on the same version of Firefox on another machine. It's fine on all other browsers on the same machine. So it's only the combination of this computer and Firefox.

I also tried changing proxy settings, safe mode, disabling hardware acceleration, disabling all the add-ons and plugins and extensions of Firefox and windows itself.

Appreciate if anyone have any idea.

This problem is new to my use of firefox which I've used for many years. I've never had this problem before. I have version 50.0.1 of firefox. Normally when I want to log out of firefox I left-click on my account photo which can be seen in the screenshot that I've provided and select the logout link. This link no longer exits as can been seen in the screenshot. I am uncertain whether the screenshot is being uploaded as there is a thumper in the Uploaded images box below this dialogue. My screenshot is a 300x165 px .jpg.

I do not like the idea of being continually logged in to my gmail account, or any of my online accounts, for security reasons so please lend me a hand with this issue.

How accurate is it when you download something through Firefox and it says "This Download Has a Virus or Malware and has been blocked for your safety"? Because I clicked "dowload anyway" then scanned it with Malwarebytes and Windows Defender and they didn't find a virus. I also scanned my whole PC and detected nothing.

I had this problem with Safari & Chrome but I was able to fix it. I cannot get rid of "search manager." I have looked into all the items listed that I can find but every time I sign onto Firefox, I'm directed to search manager. I just open a new tab. It is NOT listed as one of the search engines. How can I get rid of it? My home page is a blank page.

I am using Spectrum Security Suite as an anti-virus on my Mac. OS 10.10.5 I get an alert saying I need to install an extension for Firefox called Browser Protection. I already contacted Spectrum and they can't help. I uninstalled and reinstalled the antivirus suite. They said to contact you or use a different browser. I don't want to use a different browser. The alert comes with the option of installing this extension, but when I click "install", nothing happens. Nothing is installed. Yes, I unlocked the lock so allow an install.

I was having issues with pop-up adds on a select few websites and was a bit concerned i had inadvertently downloaded some adware or other malware. So i ran a local scan with ESET and looked around for methods to remove malware that may or may not have been present. One of the posts i found (i cant find it now >.<) said to check add-ons for anything unusual and to hit "Refresh Firefox" after removing them. I saw only AdblockPlus so i hit 'Refresh Firefox'

Its after that point that i immediately had issues obtaining certificates for almost every website, it didnt matter that i had been using it fine 10 minutes ago. But even if i added an exception the website would only load as raw text, no video, no images (i tried to upload a picture but its not letting me for some reason). at this point i installed chrome (which works fine) and tried reinstalling Firefox (probably not a good idea in hindsight), which did nothing noticeable to solve the issue.

At this point I've done everything suggested here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can

I have "ask" malware appearing everywhere. I have sought "ask" programs or files and I cannot find any , but "ask" appears on my searches. It is really annoying. I renewed my my operating system and have been careful not to inadvertently allow "ask" to fit itself in new apps. I am using Windows 10 with Mozilla Firefox as my browser. All are current.

I have tired to use a program called Searchreset 0.3, but I can't get a response from it. I search for "ASK" but I can't find anything to remove. I don't seem to have it's toolbar, but it is on any search. I have restored the operating system and have not knowingly exposed myself to "ASK". I don't want it to ever appear on my scree; can anyone help?

The extra page does not open and the only way to see it is to open ctrl/alt/delete and that is the only way to close it but I have to go to processes to close it, it will not close in applications. Today Firefox a page loaded in the background before I opened my FF browser. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox twice to no avail. I have removed all themes - nothing. Please help me fix this, I have used Firefox for years and love it but this latest mess is causing my computer to overload its ram and loading too many temp files.

I downloaded a malicious add-ons extension called "YouTube to MP3 Convert Button" by "Firefox user 6248547". All it did was open a video conversion website, which worked for the first video I tried (with alot of popups) but the second video I tried, it redirected me to a fake Firefox update page. As soon as I tried to cancel it, a login popup kept appearing and all my open tabs immediately went haywire trying to do some kind of redirect, and I it would not let me click on anything. I quickly ended the process to force close the browser, restarted Firefox and cleared my cache and uninstalled the extension. I am concerned about what kind of malware this may have installed on my machine. I reported this user over a month ago, but it is still available on the add-on page, and other people also commented about it having malware. Any suggestions?
