I received a notice showing the Firefox logo, and presented as a new patch requirement, for immediate install. the file downloaded onto my desktop, and then no longer existed even without me deleting it. I immediately conducted a search to see if I could find any info for the patch, and I did see a Firefox update for 6/28/2016, but not as a patch. I began to run scans, and did identify that the file came from baehaoolroo.net, or so it appeared to. My maleware scan showed three trojan files that were installed on 6/28, and I believe that they were installed through a fake Firefox patch. This may be a critical item, or I may not be fully informed, but the Microsoft scan found Koverter!rfn, and the malwarebytes scan found three file less trojans. I hope this helps, please advise should you have additional info.

Firefox does not load attachments (images, pdf etc) in Atlassian Confluence

I have a problem when using Firefox in our Confluence (locally hosted) Firefox does not load attachments, such as image files, pdfs, and other documents.

When clicking on the file attachment or image, it just keeps loading. I can choose to download the file no problem, but we would like to be able to view the file(s) in-line in.

Creating a new page in Confluence using Firefox causes the same loading to continue endlessly. Works fine in Chrome and Safari.

Opening attachments on other Confluence sites works fine in Firefox, so it might be a configuration problem at our end.

Any ideas?

Was reading an article from msn.com

An urgent Firefox download screen popped up and downloaded the .exe file "peemoteenfidelity.exe Webroot immediately popped up a threat detected box. Checked Webroot report. and it appears it was not installed as I did not click the file that was downloaded. I deleted the download from the the download arrow that is in the top bar. Neither Google or Bing did not show any information about the file. Any ideas? And should I be worried about compromised security?

I am just begging to develop add-ons, using the webextentions API, I followed the tutorial for the borderify extension, but when I try to load it, it doesn't load. I also don't have the option to reload extensions from the 'about:debugging' page. I am using firefox 47.0.1. Thanks in advance. (sorry if you have no idea what any of this means).

Today I've opened Firefox to find out it has been reset to it's default settings. This is a PC we use at work that recently had an issue with malware and adware and I had to remove several Add-Ons and other undesired settings they left (but the first reset occured automatically).

That being solved, I try to log in to Firefox Sync in order to restore my previous settings, bookmarks, etc. But now, when I try to access about:accounts it's just a blank page. The blue spinning wheel appears and it gets stuck there. I also attach a screenshot of Firefox's welcome screen after a second refresh I attempted to see if that solved the problem, which also shows the same loading icon.

I've already tried using Safe Mode without success. I've also performed a full scan of my PC and no other viruses were found.

Thanks in advance for any help.

In the past two days, I tried to order things online. The 'add item' icon didn't show up. This went on for 3 days. I finally had to use... (hold your breath), IE or Edge. (Yikes! Dont' want to use that).

Then today when trying to order a AV (Anti-Virus) product from Kaspersky, there was no 'trash' button or 'delete' button. Seems like something is definitely wrong. Maybe a 'pop-up' blocker, or something else causing this? Don't know.
