will DOH over https control http sites with redirects

Inserita

Hi, in firefox browser, if a click a link in anywhere in a http website, it redirects me to suspicious links , giving adobe updates or uc browser downloads without actually going to the intended link. Will the Doh over https settings in firefox , control those kind of redirects. I am particular about browser hijacks like folmetor.com redirects always, whenever i click on http and even in somehttps sites.

It sounds like you probably have a virus on your computer. I'd suggest running a scan with Malwarebytes (www.malwarebytes.com) and removing anything it finds.

There are Firefox Add-ons which help block redirects: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?platform=windows&q=redirect&sort=relevance&type=extension

And Malwarebytes Browser Guard can block malicious content when you are redirected: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/malwarebytes/?src=search

I looked up "folmetor. com" and all that I could find are scam removal tools for it so, it is obviously a scam site probably full of redirects.

Refer to your other thread for info regarding extensions to help prevent redirects.

Hello jraju,

In addition to all of the above - would you please read this article :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware

Run all malware scans that are listed there; what one doesn't pick up, the other one might.

DNS is a preparatory step in making a web request: Firefox asks your DNS resolver for the IP address of the server. Traditionally, it looks like the following, although there is a more modern numbering scheme as well:

173.248.187.15

Once this address has been retrieved, the DNS query phase is done and Firefox can send the web request.

Normally your DNS resolver is your computer's operating system, which usually sends DNS requests to your network service provider. Sending DNS requests over HTTPS prevents intermediaries from reading those requests. This is helpful for keeping your DNS queries private, just as HTTPS web requests help keep your browsing private.

However, DNS over HTTPS doesn't play any role in how servers respond to web requests, whether you get back legit results or hacked results. DNS over HTTPS also doesn't bypass malicious add-ons you might have installed in your Firefox. And similarly if you have a "man in the middle" of your connection, DNS over HTTPS doesn't protect you from what the MiTM might do to your web requests.

Hi jraju, here's an article that discusses why many people want to take advantage of DNS over HTTPS: https://hacks.mozilla.org/2018/05/a-cartoon-intro-to-dns-over-https/

But anyway, the problem of your web results being hacked with inappropriate links will need to be solved in some other way, since securing your DNS requests can't help with that.
