I found some infos but I do not trust myself just deleting the files in question since they ared all over my system. The following I found per malwarebytes which found the pups every day up to now:

PUP.Optional.DefaultSearch is Malwarebytes’ detection name for a family of browser hijackers targeting Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Symptoms The browsers’ default search engine was changed to one that belonged to the threat-actors. I am german so probably I need your patience in helping me to clean my system resp. Mozilla.

Looking forward Ingrid

I would like to search the bugzilla database for known issues.

While there is a builtin search tool, that does not work: if I search for a string and limit the search to one specific bug where I know it contains the string, then that bug is reported. Doing the same search over all bugs, it (takes long and then) reports that no bug at all contains the string - not even the one where I know it contains the string.

So this search tool is proven defective and cannot be used. What alternatives are there?

I use Win 10 desktop. Recently FF 92.0 started crashing frequently. Not sure whether this is a browser issue or whether it has anything to do with the recent Dell chip set update software.

Downgraded to FF 91.0 which do not appear crashing. However, I noted FF uses a huge amount of memory, and FF does not properly shut on Exit. Task Manager shows FF lines for about 30 seconds after exiting FF.

Is this something to do with my setup or something not right with FF?

I want to disable all of the automatic suggestions and autocomplete functions. I am totally blind, and I have recently had problems with a suggestion appear which was wrong! I entered my four-digit address, and the autosuggestions popped up several addresses - ALL OF WHICH WERE WRONG! I was very annoyed arrowing through the items, listening to them spoken, and finding that NONE of them were correct. I got lost in one of those darned suggestion systems while finalizing an order and eventually closed Firefox and started the process over. I had those darned suggestions turned off at one time, but they must have come back on when the last update occurred. So i want to fix Firefox so that it will simply let me type in the needed information - address, or whatever is needed - with no suggestions popping up - hopefully so they will stay off PERMANENTLY!

About a week ago, Firefox began occasionally opening a webpage or even my Google login window in some random language. Opening a new tab and closing the errant tab would result in the same page opening correctly in English. The language used when Firefox erred was never the same twice. In the last couple days the rate of errors has accelerated. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Is someone other than me using my Firefox credentials?

First off, I'm kind of a nincompute. So, simply, my bookmarks always separate somewhere in the middle of the list. Each section is alphabetically arranged.

  But why does this happen? I choose to sort by alphabet, so I should have one list with all the A's in one place, etc., instead of two lists.
  I never chose to divide the list, and i can't figure out how the bookmark genie picks what goes where.

Before I close the Firefox browser i go to Settings>Clear Data> Cookies & Site Data>Cached Web Content. I clear all and the Cached Web Content is lowered to 45kb. History is deleted. There is nothing in Manage Data or Manage Exceptions. The computer is turned off. A day later the computer is turned on and Cached Web Content is 2Mb.

Windows Defender anti-virus malware scan and full scan have been run. The computer is up to date, Win 10 Home, version 21H1, OS build 19043.1237.

Any idea what is causing Cached Web Content to grow from 45kb to 2 Mb when the computer is turned off?
