None............and I do mean NONE of the posted solutions posted permanently resolve the problem. They will temporarily, but inevitably Yahoo rears it's ugly head again. Comically Mozilla has admitted awareness of the problem stating "it was a glitch in version 35, but it has been corrected and updating to version 36 will take care of it". So what are we on now..............version 42 and it's still ongoing. The I.T. department at the corporation I work for finally got so fed up with calls about this that we are no longer permitted to use the Firefox browser on corporate owned PC's. Unless Yahoo has a malicious hacker in their ranks or there is a "cyber browser conspiracy" between Yahoo and Mozilla I find it incredibly difficult to believe they can't resolve this!?!?!?

Help Please! An Adware Tab Keeps Popping Up Randomly On Firefox, And I Can't Stop It!

Hello, I am new here. I have been using Firefox on my Windows laptop for a while now, but now, I have an adware tab that keeps popping up randomly! This is the tab that keeps popping up: cl.1ck.me/dl/shuffle.php I've tried everything, from refreshing Firefox, installing add-ons to block pop-ups, blocking the site with BlockSite (add-on to block websites), and still it is popping up! By default, whenever the rather assertive tab opens itself, I get a message saying that Firefox prevented the page from redirecting. When I allowed it to show, it would show me some obviously malicious ad, saying something like "Windows Media Player is out of date! Click to update now!" (it was different ads each time, but all of them wanted me to download a program). Now whenever I allow it to show, I get redirected to http://www.adtrackone.eu/go.php?a_aid=55415c29d7266 and Firefox gives me a message that says that the website is a reported attack site, and advises me not to continue. When I do proceed to the site, I don't even get an advertisement anymore; a pop-up from Firefox appears, asking if I'd like to save "Setup__11652_il641438.exe" Of course, I have not saved the executable, as it is obviously malware, and I've gotten some pretty bad viruses on my laptop before (Security.Hijack was one of them. What a nasty thing that was! There was also Storm Watch, Desktop Temperature Monitor, et cetera, I'm getting off topic.) And even when my computer is off, this bugger still finds a way to open itself! I usually find about 5 or 6 of these tabs open every morning, each one with the message "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page." It used to just keep opening itself one at a time, but now it's opening itself in pairs. For example, it's already happened three times while I've been typing this; I'll be typing, then the tab will pop up twice in a row! I'm sorry that this message is so long, but I really need help! This is actually the first time I've made a forum post for help...I searched for cl.1ck.me/dl/shuffle.php online, and the only result I could find was a page in Polish where someone had it set as their home page and couldn't get rid of it. Unfortunately, there were no solutions to that problem. Again, I'm sorry for the dreadfully long message but I REALLY need help! Refreshing Firefox, uninstalling my add-ons and themes, deleting suspicious-looking files in my Firefox data folder, scanning my computer for viruses with MalwareBytes - all of these have done NOTHING to help the issue! Here are some screenshots, if they'll help. Please, ANY help at all will be appreciated! If you need any more information, ask! Screenshots (had to use an image hoster because it wasn't working when I tried to add them for some reason): http://s28.postimg.org/5kv62lwvh/Screenshot_1482.png http://s28.postimg.org/hlgm3c4a5/Screenshot_1483.png http://s28.postimg.org/6pp87zjcd/Screenshot_1484.png http://s28.postimg.org/u2n9qhzfx/Screenshot_1485.png

I have a redirect problem with Firefox but not Safari: Norton antivirus finds no viruses on computer so maybe it's on the modem router: what can I do?

I'm using a Mac running OS X Yosemite, 10.10.5. When I use Firefox (but not when I use Safari) to go to any website that doesn't have a little green locked padlock icon next to its URL, the browser tries to redirect me to an adware site within a few seconds. I have now clicked the button telling Firefox to notify me when this happens, so I no longer actually get the adware site -- just a notification from Firefox that it's been told to go there and a blank screen.

Norton antivirus has done a complete system scan and finds nothing. Maybe the problem is on my ADSL router, or maybe it's some legitimate-looking add-on. I have contacted the router company and they sort-of helped, perhaps by sending a firmware upgrade to the router but I don't know. Soon after I contacted them the problem went away, but only briefly. Now it's back

I really want to get rid of this thing, as I greatly prefer Firefox to Safari. What should I do?

Quite often, maybe every other day or so, while navigating to my regularly visited sites on Firefox a page will automatically redirect to https://eecohweb1.com/5171142995655/e168b96dcf8e600121a9d71679334641.html It appears to be a legitimate Flash page where they say your Flash may be out of date. I think over a year ago I may have accidentally downloaded it, but haven't since and have ran all kinds of anti-virus and malware removal programs. I suspect this is the result of malware because Microsoft Security Essentials automatically pops up and says I was protected from something.

Anyone else have this problem? I've ran Microsofct Security Essentials, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, AdwCleaner, and Stinger. They don't seem to find anything.

I was watching Netflix in a single FireFox tab (no new tabs were open), fell asleep, woke up, and there was a new tab open that thanked me for (supposedly) installing this extesnion. I check the Add-ons Manager and it had been installed as an add-on into my FireFox Browser without my knowledge or permission. I live alone, no one was visiting, and my cats aren't -that- savvy! Ha!

There is no excuse for this. Please ban this Jason Savard creep by every means possible, including by his computer's IP address, any smart devices he uses, etc. If you're able to track down his ISP, please report his activities to them, as this kind of activity is illegal and likely against his ISP's policies.

Please also include a reporting system in your Add-ons/Extensions page, or include a "Report Abuse" link on the pages for each extension that FireFox users come up with. I'm not happy about having to "post a question" in order to communicate this problem to you.

PS. I have tried to upload a screen shot of what I saw when I first woke up, however, your image uploading tool is not working. It pretends to upload a file, but even at a high upload speed for my ISP, it can't handle a simple .jpg screen shot (1400 x 900 dpi on a 17" screen). Please fix this issue as well. If you want the screen shot, please email me so I can reply to that email with the .jpg screen shot file. I'm not going to sit here forever waiting for some silly uploading-in-progress icon to never change to "Done" or whatever.

Starting yesterday when I turn on my computer, or after it has been in use for some hours, totally unexpectedly, unasked for, suddenly a commercial comes on, a speaking voice with background music - it can interrupt whatever is already going on, is not identified in any way, no accompanying images, and therefore of course how can I get rid of it?

I have a need to interrupt or stop the downloading of immaterial content from obnoxious and inconsiderate web sites without closing the Firefox session. A fix might include the immediate transfer to a link when selected. Animations, videos, and advertisements have ruined the browsing experience I have enjoyed since 1998.
