I am positive about Firefox is the most secure browser and have evidence of it. Nevertheless the following site could traspass the Firefox barriers: https://www.eldestapeweb.com/ I am concerned on the survival of Free World and consecuently of Free Software. I guess the above mentioned site belongs to a parapolitical official organization. I consider that for it's job obtained tech help from some powerful international group. The average user of Firefox is unprevented of this issue. I am not asking for help in my behalf, because I have the necesary time to help myself. I suggest the Mozilla guys to investigate the facts. Sincery yours, Edgardo Colombo Buenos Aires.

Hello,

unfortunately my english is not so good, my protection software comes from Bitdefender and it`s called Bitdefender Total Security. When I open Mozilla, I get always a little Bitdefender Window with a message the the protection system has blocked a malware site https://milkpload.net But if i run the security scan, nothings comes up.

Is it possible that this site is stored in the moziolla browser ? because the warning comes also up without any internet connection.

May be somebody has an idea because I am only an end user :-)

Many thanks in advance and sorry again for my horrible english

Malware Auto Download with Capital One Download URL

I happened on a page: https://capitaloneshopping.com/join-capital-one-shopping?utm_source=Meerkat&utm_campaign=107592707702&utm_term=472928718855&gclid=EAIaI… (read more)

I happened on a page: https://capitaloneshopping.com/join-capital-one-shopping?utm_source=Meerkat&utm_campaign=107592707702&utm_term=472928718855&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI0Ij6h5iD7QIVgi0MCh2TLgrJEAEYASAAEgJALvD_BwE

And it immediately began "downloading an app" and I quit the page before it could get far, but, obviously, that doesn't mean it stopped. However, now Firefox is acting a little wiggy, and I'm concerned it might have downloaded something that's affecting the browser. Was trying to read about "capital one shopping malware," and pages wouldn't open when any links on the search results were clicked, etc.

Is this a known issue? Resolutions offered?

"New" Firefox Search Result Hijacker

Hi,

I recently downloaded and installed some Android emulator named "Andy". Unfortunately, the .exe also installed all kinds of other Software on my Windows 7 system.

I removed most of the unwanted Software but one problem remained: A search result hijacker was part of the package. It replaces the top 4 results with some cryptic redirect links that are luckily displayed in a different font, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed at all.

I tracked the issue down to a addon in Firefox (see attached screenshot) that I cannot remove, no matter what I try.

What I tried to remove it: - I tried to remove the addon via about:config - I tried to run Firefox in safe mode and uninstall it - I tried to factory reset Firefox - I Installed Avira and made a system scan - I installed MalwareBytes and made a system scan - I check all the extension folders for addons that I do not know but can't find anything - I checked my whole system for any xpi-files but couldn't find any.

I am out of ideas. I can disable the addon but thats about it. After a while Firefox will shut itself down and the next time I start it, the addon is on again. When I resinstall FIrefox, the same thing happens. The addon is always back.

When I inspect the element it loads some invisible icon file that is supposedly located in "src="jar:file:///C:/Windows/Installer/%7BB28AF4A4-C997-4A5B-A111-FD1E65138A8D%7D/%7B02E337C0-4D70-452D-AA64-92D0A8C5D953%7D.xpi!/icon48.png"", if that helps. But the location doesn't exist on my system.

Can anyone here help me? I alread sent a problem report via the official tool.

Sincerely Florian

I need help! Everyday I have at least 8 Chinese Hackers that show up on on the top in the list of websites visited on my Firefox. The entire page is in Chinese with Chinese pictures. Please see the attached images. I have no idea how long they have been there prior to being so bold to openly show themselves. I certainly have no idea of what they have uploaded or downloaded on my laptop. How can I get rid of them and what can i do to prevent them coming back? I know a lot of weird things have been going on in my computer that I have absolutely no reason nor explanation for. this has been going on for at least the last couple of years or more. I have had 3 computers to crash in a short period of time which I feel they have done. Spyware shows I have had a keylogger for a long time but all of the files it takes me to are protected and I have not been able to delete them. BillCowanjr@gmail.com

Since there was an attempted hack a few weeks ago that firefox interrupted I have been unable to access my electric utility account. I tried working through the company trying to sign in to no avail even after changing id's and passwords numerous times. They told me they have done all they can at their end. I really would like to talk to someone who can help me. I'm 73 years old and do use my computer that often and am not really computer savvy. If you can help me, my phone number is [phone number]. I really hope to hear from somebody soon.

My wife called me in this afternoon when big red error message popped up "saying" it is a red alert and the web page used Apple's logo on it, said the old 2011 iMac, OS 10.10.5 Yosemite, is "blocked" and has a virus. It had an 877 phone number to call but we failed to write it down. She did nothing after that. When I saw that I pressed the red window page kill button, upper left. Got the rotating rainbow ball. . . computer working overtime. Next, Command-W to kill the webpage, nada. Finally, pressed the hardware ON/OFF button behind left side of screen. On SAFE restart I opened my account not hers and found Firefox had thin, white, flashing lines across the tab bar area(full width) and tabs were flashing individually. Every time you open a tab, this happens or possibly when it is accessing. So, I upgraded Firefox, leaving the OLD version intact. Upgrade I NOW notice is the 64 bit version.

Is there a fix out there? or, is this thing "infected" with the CCP virus or something? Fix for it?

I will shut down and re-open the old version and see if it still happens and post an update here.

I have tried everything that I can find to get rid of that damn searchitnow, which replaced my preferred Google Search. I've looked for downloads, extensions, everything. I've checked to make sure Google is my preferred search engine, and on and on. There is nothing. I have run Malwarebytes several times and it comes up clean.

How do I get this off my Mac? I am running OS X El Capitan 10.11.6.

I believe my FF account was compromised and an unknown person has accessed my synced accounts to commit criminal activity (stolen digital assets).

Where can I find a log of logins/session history, or better yet, can someone from FF support help me find what I am looking for. I checked for a confirmation email but I suspect it may have been deleted and then permanently deleted from my gmail - which according to Google is unable to be recovered.
