Fake Firefox virus and payment warnings

I clicked on what may have been a malicious link last night. A Firefox message popped up immediately warning of viruses, so I exited out of Firefox and then ran a full McAfee scan -- which found no viruses.

But I am now getting popup messages, purportedly from Firefox, warning me that my McAfee payment has been rejected (not true) and warning that Windows Security has located viruses. A capture of one is attached.

Note it says it's from qltuh.check-tl-ver-106-1.com.

Assuming these aren't legit, how do I remove them?

Thanks!

Good day,

I was experiencing a time related issue when my system clock was unexpectedly lagging behind. I was trying to connect to my https proxy while noticing. I had disabled ocsp querying and hard-fail to avoid any issues. So far, nothing was out of the ordinary. What really surprised me however, was that i was getting the OCSP_FUTURE_RESPONSE error all of a sudden. It should have never attempted querying the ocsp server in the first place. why then am i getting this error message?

When I launched Mozilla, it asked for the system admin password to perform an update. I had never encountered anything like this before, but unfortunately, I entered my credentials instinctively. When I realized that the browser had never asked for credentials for an update before, I checked the update history. According to the history, the last update was the day before. Additionally, I checked the modification dates of the files updater.exe, maintenanceservice.exe, and maintenanceservice_installer.exe, and they match the date when Firefox requested administrator privileges. I would like to know what could have caused this situation and whether it could have compromised the security of my Windows system.

Hi, I'm a UK user and since this update dowloaded it is blocking the "cookie options" popup boxes on my email accounts and as a result I can not access my emails using Firefox. I have had to resort to "Google" but I would much prefer to use Firefox I am trying to see if I can make my email accounts exceptions, however it would be easier if I can just uninstall this update. Could you advise me how to do this. Thanks for your help and advice Mike

My computer (Windows 11) crashed while I was using Firefox--for the first time that I've seen, it did a full disk check. When booting back up, I was unable to use Firefox, since it said that my profiles.ini file was lost/corrupted.

After renaming the old file, I went back to the folder. It was easy enough to reinstall the add-ons that I needed, but I'm trying to get my bookmarks back. However, I can't seem to find them--the "bookmarkbackups" folders that come up are too new, and only one (the current one) has a file in it.

Any help will be appreciated! I'm not sure what I can do.

I really appreciate everything you do, but I am a boomer (Loud and Proud), I did not get born with a device attached to my hand, I am a digital imbecile.

With all that in mind, it has become too difficult to keep up with the digitalisation, at least in my case. So when you send me suggestions and update procedures I end up just closing everything, too much to read, too stressing, but the suggestions keep coming every time I open the firefox browser. Can I not just keep the version I have and decline any new versions.

I also have a problem in regard to language, it is set to English, but I do not care for US English, I would like to have GB English, but somehow it won't accept that.

What can I do?

Kind regards,

Hi,

I think it would be nice sync-ing bookmarks would include favicons too.

When I bookmark a site from my work computer, the favicon would not appear in the bookmark of my home computer.

When I reinstall Firefox the bookmarks are restored, but not the favicons.

So, it would be nice to sync favicons too. Makes bookmark more aesthetically pleasing.

Several months ago, I couldn't log in to my Yahoo email accounts. For reasons yet to be explained, the two step verification ended up with a message saying they were having trouble, and try again later. No amount of waiting for later worked.

Maybe what I'm asking about now is unrelated, but yesterday I tried again. When I go here Yahoo | Mail, Weather, Search, Politics, News, Finance, Sports , and select either of the links

link text

I am directed here link text

link text

Instead of here (these came from Chrome)

Welcome to Yahoo Mail

https://i.postimg.cc/c45Qp77L/yahoo5.jpg

When I use that url in Firefox, I am taken here

link text

If I try to add a Yahoo account in that situation, it becomes clear that IS only for adding other other AT&T accounts.

I tried using about:support - Troubleshooting Information to clear the startup cache, and in safe mode, but it did not help.

I talked to ATT&T. They have been having these sorts of Firefox related problems for months now, which they have reported to Mozilla month ago (which confirms my past troubles as well), but for whatever reason Mozilla hasn't acted on it.

But here is the weird part for me. Aside from my main profile, I have a Firefox "basic" profile. It has no addons, but It has basically the same settings with my main profile, and, because it hasn't been updated in a while, I believe it has most of the same about:config tweaks as well.

In that profile, It 'Yahoo works '. What could constitute a difference between this starter profile and one that's running in safe mode to create this problem. Can you think of an about:config tweak that could be responsible for all this?

Do we have any idea whats causing this.

Hello,

Ref: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-password-authentification-prompt

I am trying to get FF Windows to use my fingerprint scanner to authenticate the password manager functions. When I select the Subject option in Settings, then select More Options, I only see options for PIN or "Use Different Account". If I use a PIN to enable this option, then disable the option, I get a choice to select to Fingerprint or PIN. Is this a bug, or by design? I would like to always use fingerprint to access the password manager vs. PIN.

Thanks,

Terry

When pasting text into Outlook Online the text removes the preceding space. A minor inconvenience but it does mean I have to double space before pasting.

Also after pasting text I get a paste box that locks out any controls unless I click out of it or press ESC. (image below)

Text being copied from inside Outlook doesn't pop up the box.

Anyway to fix either option?
