What can be the cause of these persistent malicious redirects?

I have had this issue for a while now where very occasionally I get redirected to a spam site while clicking on a Google search result. When I click on the search result again, I get sent to the right site. The affected sites are to my knowledge entirely unrelated. I deleted most of my add-ons in an attempt to eliminate possible causes, but since it only happens occasionally I can't really test it.

Since I began noticing this, I have installed another Linux distro and copied over my Firefox profile. Today I noticed it happening again.

I ended up on http://app9101.trueredirect32.live/8880272221/?t=main9_b3098321c3066e2a3b&u=d29pte4&o=vxzkpbg&f=1

In the past I ended up on http://competition3202.ttt-time56.live/6643885456/?u=gmqk605&o=55hppzy&t=main7&f=1 and http://competition3207.ourtime89.live/?utm_medium=oxxGrJ1EO8rl%2flkgHhDHtdaJe%2b6y3ml38Z%2b1ZX9QaLo%3d&t=main4

The add-ons I am currently using are uBlock Origin, Old Reddit Redirect, Plasma Integration and Feed Preview (plus a disabled Web Developer add-on). The only add-on of those that I also used when I first noticed the effects was uBlock Origin. This add-on is pretty well-established though, so I can't imagine it being the source of these malicious redirects.

Do you have any idea?

Firefox keeps crashing on startup. I click on the icon in the Windows menu, there's a pause, then I see the crash reporter. When I click submit, the same thing happens. I started my portable app version of Firefox to get this submitted. I'm not sure the version of the Firefox that keeps crashing, but I've got auto updates set, so it should be quite recent.

This has been happening for a few days.

I've got the latest .dmp and .extra files, but not sure if I should try attaching them where it says "Add images:"

I just noticed the "Troubleshooting Information:" section. Not sure what will be accurate since I'm using a portable version of Firefox, not the one that keeps crashing.

When I scroll down my page, I notice my address bar disappears to the very top and I can't pick any options until I scroll back to the top. I've never had it do this before - how do I change the settings? Attaching a picture of the bar that keeps disappearing. Well, I tried twice to upload the picture but that hangs up too.

Usually upgrades are automatic with a progress bar showing completion... I don't ever recall a Firefox Upgrade in the format:

"Firefox would like to make permanent changes to your Hard Drive" [.sic]

I've had some Malware issues lately so I am suspicious of this unfamiliar format.

Thank You for your assistance with this matter...

Where am I to look or expect your response?? Through my Email Address would be just fine.

Firefox opens fine and works fine. When I close it I get error messages. Event Viewer says the faulting application path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\pingsender.exe, and the faulting module path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\ucrtbase.DLL. The same module is causing faults in other programs I use.

My browser does not respond. We type in the address bar and nothing happens, not even some error message. The menu also does not work some options as internet option. I have already opened in security mode, I have disabled the plugins and extensions, I have restored firefox, I have completely uninstalled firefox and reinstalled, and lastly using applications like malwarebytes and superantispyware, I did a scan on the pc, keeping the same error.

I am trying to sign into a site regarding my medical prescriptions and information. It is a site that I trust. In the past, they were allowed to use cookies. Now, on the updated Firefox private window, they will not let me use the site since cookies are not accepted. I need help with this as it is very important.

Otherwise, I will be forced to use a different browser that I DO NOT want to use.

Hello

Since I'm working with a lot of B2B solutions that provide XML or JSON I have used this customer setting in Firefox:

network.http.accept.default;text/html;q=0.9,application/xhtml+xml;q=0.8,application/json;q=0.7,application/xml;q=0.6,*/*;q=0.5

In the inspector under teh network tab I see FF is sending this: Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8

I'm using FF66.0.2 and this has been working properly before. I can see that the default was changed in release notes, but the documentation still states that one can set this. Why doesn't it work?

I've tried this in safe mode as well. No change.

Just after installing Firefox Quantum v66.0.2 (64 bit), I am now seeing tens of items being blocked by Ghostery, NoScript and UBlock, items I have not seen being blocked in the past. Is this new version of Firefox subject to being immediately hijacked as soon as it is updated? Is there now something different in Firefox's security for this new version? I have checked ALL of my Firefox settings and all settings are set just as I want them to be set, with this exception: I seem to have many more certificates than I really need and many of them appear to be from countries other than the US. Would I encounter problems if I just deleted all the current certificates in order to update the required certificates? Thank you, Rusty
