Fake Firefox virus and payment warnings

I clicked on what may have been a malicious link last night. A Firefox message popped up immediately warning of viruses, so I exited out of Firefox and then ran a full McAfee scan -- which found no viruses.

But I am now getting popup messages, purportedly from Firefox, warning me that my McAfee payment has been rejected (not true) and warning that Windows Security has located viruses. A capture of one is attached.

Note it says it's from qltuh.check-tl-ver-106-1.com.

Assuming these aren't legit, how do I remove them?

Thanks!

When I launched Mozilla, it asked for the system admin password to perform an update. I had never encountered anything like this before, but unfortunately, I entered my credentials instinctively. When I realized that the browser had never asked for credentials for an update before, I checked the update history. According to the history, the last update was the day before. Additionally, I checked the modification dates of the files updater.exe, maintenanceservice.exe, and maintenanceservice_installer.exe, and they match the date when Firefox requested administrator privileges. I would like to know what could have caused this situation and whether it could have compromised the security of my Windows system.

Hi, I'm a UK user and since this update dowloaded it is blocking the "cookie options" popup boxes on my email accounts and as a result I can not access my emails using Firefox. I have had to resort to "Google" but I would much prefer to use Firefox I am trying to see if I can make my email accounts exceptions, however it would be easier if I can just uninstall this update. Could you advise me how to do this. Thanks for your help and advice Mike

Several months ago, I couldn't log in to my Yahoo email accounts. For reasons yet to be explained, the two step verification ended up with a message saying they were having trouble, and try again later. No amount of waiting for later worked.

Maybe what I'm asking about now is unrelated, but yesterday I tried again. When I go here Yahoo | Mail, Weather, Search, Politics, News, Finance, Sports , and select either of the links

link text

I am directed here link text

link text

Instead of here (these came from Chrome)

Welcome to Yahoo Mail

https://i.postimg.cc/c45Qp77L/yahoo5.jpg

When I use that url in Firefox, I am taken here

link text

If I try to add a Yahoo account in that situation, it becomes clear that IS only for adding other other AT&T accounts.

I tried using about:support - Troubleshooting Information to clear the startup cache, and in safe mode, but it did not help.

I talked to ATT&T. They have been having these sorts of Firefox related problems for months now, which they have reported to Mozilla month ago (which confirms my past troubles as well), but for whatever reason Mozilla hasn't acted on it.

But here is the weird part for me. Aside from my main profile, I have a Firefox "basic" profile. It has no addons, but It has basically the same settings with my main profile, and, because it hasn't been updated in a while, I believe it has most of the same about:config tweaks as well.

In that profile, It 'Yahoo works '. What could constitute a difference between this starter profile and one that's running in safe mode to create this problem. Can you think of an about:config tweak that could be responsible for all this?

Do we have any idea whats causing this.

Hi,

I think it would be nice sync-ing bookmarks would include favicons too.

When I bookmark a site from my work computer, the favicon would not appear in the bookmark of my home computer.

When I reinstall Firefox the bookmarks are restored, but not the favicons.

So, it would be nice to sync favicons too. Makes bookmark more aesthetically pleasing.

Pretty much every video I attempt to play, including https://www.allaboutbirds.org/cams/red-tailed-hawks/# will play the video only when audio is muted. unmute the audio and you get the audio track but the video is paused.

Can't figure this one out, I've seen it only in the last few days (it started when I was using 127.0.0 and continues in 127.0.1)

Chrome and Chromium don't do this.

Thanks in advance for any helpful advice!

When pasting text into Outlook Online the text removes the preceding space. A minor inconvenience but it does mean I have to double space before pasting.

Also after pasting text I get a paste box that locks out any controls unless I click out of it or press ESC. (image below)

Text being copied from inside Outlook doesn't pop up the box.

This problem is only happening with Firefox as using a different browser (i.e. chrome at office) does not do either of the problems. Anyway to fix either option?
