It only happens with firefox. WHY? Bitdefender has discovered this issue as a phishing attack.

Somehow, the attached screen became visible after my browser had become unresponsive, trying to use Facebook. Looked very bogus to me. "Uploaded images" box, below, is not clearing so I'm going to try to send this, anyway. It was just a small jpg file.

I am getting redirected to unknown sites whenever I open any site while using mozilla. Initially I thought that there is a problem with my device, but then I realized that this happens only when using mozilla, not with other browsers like chrome, IE, or opera. These sites are mainly having the message 'Ad by ShopDrop'.. I am pasting below links to few sites to which I get redirected to

A program called pc keeper has attached itself to my Mozilla Firefox, and I am no longer able to use it. Even uninstalling and reinstalling is a no fix.

Yesterday I discovered a pop-up attached to my Mozilla Firefox, it was essentially a white box, with a grey bar inside, which I dangerously clicked as it would not allow me to close or access my Mozilla. Clicking the box revealed an ad for something call PC Keeper which now also shows in my remembered links as being in a second window. I was forced to shut down my computer to close the Mozilla, making all my links unavailable to me, and ultimately had to uninstall it from my computer. I attempted to reinstall a new version, but, again found this PC Keeper attached to it, it's white window firmly locking everything up, and forcing me again to uninstall the program. Please, find me a way to once more have my Mozilla without this PC Keeper.

I have windows 8.1 on my laptop. When I installed Mozilla firefox I ran it and the first search I did redirected me to a site that claims to be some sort of security for the software. pcprotecthub.com/Mozilla. Call Mozilla@855_276_8508 - Call 1-855_276_8508(Toll Free). I have had to uninstall Mozilla as I cannot use it with this hack. I have used hitman pro and the windows defender , and the Microsoft malicious software removal tool to no avail. They find nothing, yet each and every time I install firefox the same thing occurs. Please tell me you have a way to block or remove this annoyance.

Hello:

A few days back this computer was infected with ad.ssl.imgfarm.com. So I did uninstall firefox to get rid of it. Slowly it is taking over all fuctions. Internet is not working with Internet explorer. When I go to the website....it does not show any information. I canot download any browser including Firefox. The virus has erased all system restore points.... I regularly run Microsoft Security Essential + I have run Microsoft Virus Removal tool+ I have End Protection from Trusteer...only that seems to work. Microsoft cannot detect anything. I have not created any System Restoration disc and I am copying files ....to try and reset to factory condition...wondering whether with the personal files wil carry the virus, into a restored computer or a different computer. How to get rid of this menace?

Regards

Last week, a shortcut to a website that I have bookmarked has started appearing on my desktop each time I turn on my computer. (In case it's relevant, it is a bookmark for the website of payroll company ADP.) I keep deleting it, and it keeps coming back. I've searched the internet for others having similar problems, but I haven't been able to find instances of it happening to anyone else. I'm stumped. Help?

Earlier today, I was redirected during a FB session to log back in - kinda weird, but it took me to a page at facebook.com/r.php. Irt claims my system has malware. neither Norton nor Malwarebytes can find it. When I said OK, it took me to a page asking me to download some software. Of course, I did not.

I checked in Chrome, and I was able to log in with zero issues, so I know something is up. I tried to go to facebook.com/r.php, and it redirected me to the regular FB page, so I know something got me. I uninstalled FF, erased the folders, including AppData, Roaming, etc. Everything I could find. Re-scanned, all clear, then re-installed FF. Issue is still there.

Anyone have any ideas? I hate the idea of wiping my system, especially with W10 in a few weeks! I have a screen cap attached. The pages refer back to fbcdn.net,

Thanks in advance! (Did I find a new bug? or Virus?)

I recently downloaded some some tool bars that were suggested by Mozilla Firefox. Now, when I try to open the Firefox browser it immediately goes to the affilinet toolbar- Account Data window which asks for the Publisher ID and Publisher Web service Password. I don't know either of these and can't get past this window to use the browser. How can I disable this or get past it so I can use the Firefox browser?
