Webpages don't open on Firefox and a link is clicked (for example, a link in an email). This problem does not happen when using another browser. I followed the advice given to someone who had the same problem. Switching to "No proxy" as suggested did not correct the problem. The advice was from zeroknight and is pasted below: zeroknight 12/1/23, 1:28 AM more options The browser settings are in the menu that looks like three horizontal bars (≡). From there, go into Connection Settings and change "Use system proxy settings" to "No proxy".

Refreshing Firefox did not correct the problem

I noticed that websites in my main firefox profile began showing the time in UTC rather than following my timezone.

privacy.resistFingerprinting and privacy.resistFingerprinting.testing.setTZtoUTC are set to false

Other profiles follow my timezone, so I would imagine that this has something to do directly with my current firefox profile.

Thank you

hi, my drive died 4days ago and i'm just now back online, i was sure that i had registered (signed on) with Firefox. Turns out i have NOT done that... MYBAD, fersure, i am hoping against all odds that you can help me recover all my old passwords which i have stored on the Fire Fox app that i was using, quite happily, with the old drive, i still have some, a handful of those addresses and passwords on file, but not near enough to get back to where i was online b4 the old drive kacked, i was hoping that if i gave you the addies and passwords, you could somehow find that Firefox i had downloaded? I gotta say that i feel SO stupid asking this, but trust me...LESSON WELL LEARNED!!! if you can help me that would be AWESOMELY MASSIVELY GOOD!!!! THANK YOU for your time Malcolm Wright

Hi

My GF just rung up, she is running FF 128.0 (64-bit) from Ubuntu snap on Ubuntu Linux 22.04.4 LTS (which I set up for her and use myself)

She complained that whenever she starts up FF she gets a display about "MS Windows Defender" and ringing some allegedly Microsoft number together with a recorded message over and over.

I logged into her machine remotely using the SSH connection I've set up (Fiewalled so only I can do it), killed FF and she tried it again with the same result.

I told her go go onto Chrome for now, which she did without incident. On no account should she ring the number, which is obviously that of a scammer, although they would be confused by a Linux system.

In the meantime I had a look round the files on her machine. I couldn't find anything in particular, but I wasn't very sure where to look.

I tried deleting the contents of .cache/mozilla/firefox/0e35ujgr.default/startupCache and that enabled her to use FF again but I notice it got repopulated, seemingly with stuff relevant to Windows - however I see that exists on my system.

She almost exclusively uses Facebook on the system, I wonder if it is malware from a FB ad?

Has anyone got any idea about what this malware is, where it came from and what files I should remove from her system if it happens again.
