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.

Hello everyone, Trying to find out if my Mac Mini has been infected with flashback. Using this terminal command,

defaults read /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Info LSEnvironment,

I got this response:

{MallocNanoZone = 0;}

It should read:

The domain/default pair of (/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Info, LSEnvironment) does not exist

I cannot find anything about this and was wondering if it indicates anything malicious. Anyone know about this? Thanks.

1) I have to tell it I want to use Google. I've deleted ALL the other search engines, hoping that would solve the problem. It didn't. They were reinstalled when I rebooted. 2) I have to reset the Google search settings 3) I have to reset the Add-ons (either reinstall them or reset the activation settings)

There are probably some other things I haven't noticed because I haven't tried to use the affected feature.

Initially, I thought that a virus might have infected my computer, I think this was solved. After that, I started to use the Opera browser and under it was not be made these very annoying, disturbing phenomena, so I think that Mozilla Firefox is under an attack on side and I wanted to indicate it to You.
