Whereas MS Edge Defender Screen did a wonderful job, and also Norton safe web did well in this regard.

Over a year of not being able to use our home computer in Seattle using Firefox. Microsoft punishes us for using Firefox in Seattle by placing any request or search on Firefox into a full Green Screen labeled PAUSE.

From there left with option to turn computer off. COMCAST Staff say this in not their fault. They receive about $80 month for internet service. My wife and I feel like we are criminals locked up in a high security prison in downtown Seattle, with no way to get out. HELP! HELP! SOS HELP!

My Premium Malwarebytes has detected a Trojan on outbound, I usually Play Runescape, Have been playing for 15 Years +, 2 hours before this, i played on Runescape with no problems, since opening Runescape Launcher, game did not load, had reference also to firewall, since 2 hours prior Nothing had changed. i then rechecked firewall, and all was OK, I had added all URL from Runescape to exception, even company name, jagex.com I also use Norton 360, however Norton did not pick up Trojan, any suggestions? I was thinking of uninstalling Firefox, then installing again, I didn't do this as i have many Sites saved and wasn't sure if they would also be deleted, I play this game to keep my mind active, as i can't walk sit or stand for more then a couple minutes, ...

Hi Folks,

I've used Firefox for years with no problem. Yesterday, I was seeking out a specific font. The website looked legit, but then a security block happened and I don't recall if it was Firefox security or Acronis that flashed a brief "block" announcement. In any case, from that point on, several "racey" websites popped up every time I loaded Firefox. This happened even after I restarted my computer. I then checked to see if I had pop-ups blocked on the Firefox options. I didn't, so I checked the box against pop-ups. But what happens now is Firefox does an attempt to load TWICE with an odd jerk-flash movement. Only one Firefox browser window comes up -- and that's good -- but SOMETHING is still trying to make those "racey" websites load. Why? How?

All of that to say that I'm concerned about security. Should I uninstall Firefox and reinstall?

Thanks for your input! Bob Anderson

I use firefox and pay for the vpn from firefox. Last week I encountered a ransomware attack. The Firefox immediately quarantined the attack. I am having no issues with using the computer. What was affected is Firefox itself. I cannot open Firefox at this point. I get permission denied messages upon launch. I have tried reinstalling a number of times in both the standard login and administrative login environments but I get the same results in both. Where do I go from here? Thanks Pat Imbriglio ...

My windows 10 is forcing me to update windows. If i ignore the warnings. it just kills my unsaved work and restarts my computer. To make it worse. After I start Firefox again is starts to update too. And after the update all my Open tabs and session info is completely killed. The first time it was annoying. be now it is a reason to go back to an other browser. The last time i checked i was still the owner of my laptop. and not Microsoft and not Mozilla!

If this bug is not fixed I uninstall Firefox. I need a browser i can rely on. not just doing what it wants.

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

Axel
