Since yesterday march 30, 2019, every time I want to make a research on google through Mozilla, or directly by a site address, a very unpleasant searcher "chissk.icu" appears instead of the usual research by google. I made a cleaning of my PC by malwarebyte and I have also ccleaner pro installed on it but they did not suppress this virus. Can you help me ? Thank you (Sorry for my english : I am french)

I've realised that once in a while my anti-virus (BullGuard) detects Trojan and I didn't think much of it because I thought my anti-virus would just get rid of it but just about 10 minutes ago (BullGuard detected it at 20:53) and when I open it and realise it's detected a Trojan about 5-6 times and it's automatically put it to quarantine which I have now deleted and forgot to screenshot beforehand, but it seems Trojan is attached to firefox somehow? I got Firefox about 2-3 weeks ago-ish so I am not sure why this is happening and I am concerned, is there anything I can do? I am currently running two full scans with BullGuard and Malwarebytes. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Leaving my computer on/open through earling morning 5-6-20, find on my screen the following of I encountered, and wanted to report!

Asking first... Was this a ligitimate request? And then continues, actions I took,... to view control panel for dates of possible instals 'by recent dates',... intention to uninstall(s).

We're Sorry Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore tabs and windows when it restarts. To help us diagnose and fix the problem, you can send us a crash report (?-checkmark box) Tell Mozilla about the crash so they can fix it Details (?) Add a comment (comments are publicly visable) (?-checkmark box) Include the address of the page I was on (?-checkmark box) Allow Mozilla to contact me about this report (?)Enter your email address here Your crash report will be submitted before you quit or restart.

I cancelled the checkmark, of the 'screen box asked for the query-report', did not submit! Then hard started-shutdown my computer!

GUESS WHAT? My OPEN SCREEN had a BACKGROUND of a CHINESE PAGODA and LAKE MURAL! Not anything I consciously I would open with!

Continuing I went to Control Panel! Control panel showed a 5-5-20 application, Publisher Google Chrome, I didn't install or reinstall this 'date period'! Next line showed a 4-29-20 application, Publisher Google Chrome, I'm sure I didn't need to install or reinstall, but while I often daily go to Google Search.

FOLLOWING:

Also showed three (3) issues in Control Panel, on 'close dates other installs', I am going to UNINSTALL Verified Publisher London Jamocha-xyz,... were of SAME TYPE 'AdoptOpenJDK - Open source, prebuilt OpenJDK binaries (adoptopenjdk.net)

About once a week I come back to a window or tab that is already open and it has moved from wherever I left it to a page that looks like it should be a firefox update but the web address starts with heezetoutembal.org. I never click anything except the back button to get back to my web page. Well, this time I thought I might look around as to why this is happening and tried to go back to the supposed update page but there is no button to click forward after I click back.

Anyone have a clue?? Next time, I'll try to get the whole address.

I have a persistent ad banner which appears only on Amazon and Ebay sites, and only in Firefox. It began just a few weeks ago, and for the first few days it was an ad for Ebates, but now it changed to advertise some epsystore.com I attached a screenshot of it. There is no plugin, no add-on which I did not install. I removed and reinstalled Firefox but it did not help. Has anyone seen this? Is there a way to get rid of this thing?

For 6+plus months, I get "popups". The latest shows a box in middle of screen that is in what appears to be another window. The small window has a message "Firewall has defined that your Windows Microsoft system is damaged and irrelevant. ...." plus other junk. No trade marks or anything to identify from whom. In the background, in what looks like another small window but in fact is full screen, it shows System Warning! in blue band around message starting with a "red x Your Windows system is damaged ...." that is partially hidden by the above message.

In the header where normally there is something about the site and an x to close tab, there is only the x. Also, in the address bar, it shows the i in circle, the green locked lock and the address.

Usually, I just shut down Firefox without clicking on screens. I would then restart Firefox which brings up a message "Close Firefox" with the following ? in a circle with message - "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old..." with choice boxes to close or cancel. This did not appear in lastest popup.

My settings are that Firefox on closing does not save anything.

The time before was a screen that told me on a specific date, my subscription to McAfee expires, unless.... Only trouble was I don't have a subscription!

The time before that was a McAfee back screen with a small window up front stating "Windows Security Center. Your Mcafee subscription has expired.... " with the choice window "OK".

Only just learned how simple it is to take a screen shot. I used my phone to take photos previously.

Oh and the time before above, there was a popup with Firefox logo and "Dear Firefox user, You re today's lucky visitor for: Feburary 4, 2019 ...".

I have seen multiple times these messages.

I have uninstalled and re-installed Firefox more than once. I just recently did a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro on a reformated M.2 drive. But I have a HDD with most files that I did not touch.

HELP!!!!
