Hi guys,

I don't know when and how exactly this thing was added to my firefox behind my back, I don't like it, I don't like Baidu Pan either but I have to use it.

I checked the extensions and add-ons, nothing suspicious was found.

Can you please help me remove it?

Hi Guys, Firefox crashes now and then, and when it does, it changes my default search engine.

When this happens, "Browser Default" is added to 'search Shortcuts' and selected.

To revert back to Google, it has to be selected, and removed.

I have come to the conclusion, that this is a deliberate action, caused by some form of Malware or similar, as it is the only thing that appears to change, and always happens when Firefox crashes.

On the other rare occasions that Firefox crashes, it returns asking to return to previous sessions, and does so without issue - these crashes are extremely infrequent, however, the previous example is like clockwork.

Hoping you can help.

Cheers, Brad

Hi While doing online banking (with Firefox, which I have on very high security settings), my computer began to partially freeze. I signed-out and then my computer was frozen and I powered-off the computer for safety. I started it again, and found that someone had replaced my Firefox with another version that had all of my settings removed. This was not an UPDATE by Firefox and I proved this. I checked my FIREWALL and some by the name of Igor Pavlov somehow was able to pass by my Kaspersky firewall; and, when I expanded his name, the evidence that he had indeed altered my Firefox (and perhaps more than once) was before my eyes! Shocking that he was able to alter my Firefox. Please see attachment.

Despite "denying" him in my firewall, I seem to continue to have problems with Firefox (freezing at times), even though I uninstalled the version that he put on, and reinstalled Firefox (which kept all of my old settings, as it always does with I reinstall or when updates are done). I am afraid to use Firefox right now, unfortunately.

At this point I want to entirely clean Firefox from my computer so that a reinstall does not recognize my past settings or anything else. Then reinstall fresh to see if that helps.

Do you have any other suggestions?

Thanks very much,

TJ

Long story short: Whenever I open Firefox, apparently a Russian search engine named 'Poshukach' hijacks my homepage and doesn't let me use google(Image attached). Now to solve this I scoured the Internet. I refreshed Firefox, ran malware scans and even re-installed windows. Still it doesn't go away. I installed Firefox in another device with the same account but to no avail. They while roaming through Firefox settings I noticed in the top that it says 'Your browser settings is managed by your organization' or something like that. So, I figured bad guys took control of my browser's settings disguising as my so called "organization" So, I need help from Firefox's end to solve this. Remove this Organization management stuff from my account. I want my control back. Otherwise, I am afraid I gotta stop using Firefox altogether due to privacy reasons

I was searching for some music online, and I came across a website. It redirected me to a duplicate page, that is designed exactly like Firefox Addons. Now that site automatically loads whenever I open my Firefox browser and keeps installing an addon without any permissions, even if the "Get addon" button isn't clicked. The URL of the site is https://black-mode-for-browser.site/Dark%20Fox%20%E2%80%93%20Get%20this%20Theme%20for%20%F0%9F%A6%8A%20Firefox%20(en-US).php. Please beware before checking on this link.

Tell me how to remove FreeTestNow from my PC.

Mozilla Firefox:

   Click the Menu button (three bars) on the right upper corner of the screen
   Select "Options" and click on "Privacy & Security" in the toolbar on the left hand side of the screen
   Scroll down to the "Permissions" section and click the "Settings" button next to "Notifications"
   In the opened window, locate all suspicious URLs, click the drop-down menu and select "Block"

I see no """Options""" when I click the Menu button so I can't remove FreeTestNow from my PC (Catch - 22?)

So how do I get to """Options""", then scroll down to the "Permissions" section?

Thank you for your help.
