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When I allowed it to show, it would show me some obviously malicious ad, saying something like "Windows Media Player is out of date!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!

We are currently using Firefox ESR 38.2.0 with our RHEL 6.7 workstations and need to change the network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1 from the default of TRUE to FALSE.
We tried putting a .js file in /usr/lib64/firefox/defaults/preferences to change it, but the change is ignored.
When we try another setting in the file, such as perf("network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1-https", false), then the change is made, however, with the ntlm-v1 setting, it is ignored in the file.
We can change the user_perf for network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1 on a per user bases, but as an enterprise we would like to make this change for multiple users at once and not on a per profile.
Is there any way to do this, or is creating a script and placing it in /etc/profile.d the best option?
Thanks! Joe Giles

Recent versions of Firefox not working properly under Linux (Ubuntu 14.04) when $HOME is a NFS mounted file system

I am managing a group of network booted Ubuntu 14.04 workstations at a small town (public) library and the current version of Firefox for Ubuntu 14.04 crashes. The machine have all of the file systems NFS mounted. Installing an older version (Firefox 52.6.0 ESR) works however. The new version of Firefox works just fine on the pair library owned laptops, that also run Ubuntu 14.04, but the laptops are self-contained -- they boot off their local disks. Why is this? I have pretty much determined that the only definable issue is that the network booted machines are using NFS for their file systems. No, the workstations are not sharing logins -- each machine auto-logins to a *different* user, each with their own *separate* $HOME directory and they are *not* trying to share firefox configuration trees ($HOME/.mozilla/firefox/...). But all of these directories are NFS mounted. Oh, the server for the /home file system is running CentOS 6.

I support several users having this reoccurring problem (All Windows 10 w/ creators update, running webroot secureanywhere, but problem persists if webroot realtime protection + firewall is disabled)
Periodically when firefox is running, but usually immediately on the second or third time firefox is launched after the computer starts up, a kernel panic occurs with the reference mentioning tcpip.sys. Examining the minidump with bluescreenview shows ntoskrnl.sys involved as well.
I would not normally suspect this issue to be caused by firefox, but since switching the affected users to chrome or edge, not a single bluescreen has occurred. Out of curiosity I created a fresh firefox profile on one user's computer which had not bluescreened in days, launched firefox with the new profile, browsed to a website, closed firefox, launched it again, and immediately got another bluescreen referencing tcpip.sys.
The users' firefox profile folders are normally in shares on a fileserver (in "my documents" via folder redirection) but the issue persists with profiles stored locally, fresh profiles, "refresh firefox", updating to "quantum" beta, and creating a shortcut for the users that always starts firefox in safe mode.
The problem started roughly 2 weeks ago (week of march 12-16, reports were slow to come in) and all of the firefox installations have been kept up to date since then.
