I use firefox and pay for the vpn from firefox. Last week I encountered a ransomware attack. The Firefox immediately quarantined the attack. I am having no issues with using the computer. What was affected is Firefox itself. I cannot open Firefox at this point. I get permission denied messages upon launch. I have tried reinstalling a number of times in both the standard login and administrative login environments but I get the same results in both. Where do I go from here? Thanks Pat Imbriglio ...

Did you get a name for the ransomware attack?


You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed free to use malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
