My browser history is showing multiple inappropriate bing searches through the last month. Some of the search terms are oddly worded. For examples "little girls off swimwear" and "little swimwear cute girl" and little swimwear swim girl" and "4 little girl swimsuit models." The only people that use my computer are me and boyfriend. It certainly wasn't me and he denies it too. Could this be a virus?

Hi there, This is going to be 2 questions. I use Avast! Free and Malwarebytes Free. WinXPHome, I have adblockplus but as for shopping at the basic sites, for me anyway, Walmart, Bestbuy, Newegg, Amazon, Gamestop Etc, What are my best choices for Security? I have also used NoScript but the training process is a little time consuming, for em right this second, But I will have it, And I like I think it is flash block? hopefully you can tell me about this too, I want to stop videos especially from loading and playing until I click and allow them, my computer is old and slow plus trying to keep down the data. So maybe you can suggest flashbock/NoScript or some other thing I can use for this? What has a lot of users/Good Rating?

At least half the time when I click on a bookmark or on a link in facebook or any web page , i get redirected to a totally different web page then what I was seeking. I have searched for help with this but can't find an answer. I scanned for malware, started in firefox safemode but it still happens. Also my internet speed through any browser is half as fast as it tested on the technicians computer who came to the house to check my internet speed. Why is that?

I am experiencing a proxy authentication loop on OSX, I have tried from 10.7 to 10.10. It occurs only on the new versions of Firefox. If I use the older versions of Firefox such as versions 36 or version 33 the constant authentication loop does not occur. The problem still occurs if the proxy username and password is saved in system preferences.

в последнее время при попытке входа на сайты, с защищенным соединением, начала вылазить ошибка:Ошибка при установлении защищённого соединения

При соединении с имя_сайта произошла ошибка. Алгоритм подписи в поле подписи сертификата не соответствует алгоритму в его поле signatureAlgorithm. (Код ошибки: mozilla_pkix_error_signature_algorithm_mismatch). например, на таком известном как ru.wikipedia.org. В то-же время, Хром прекрасно ходит по всем тем сайтам, куда невозможно зайти через мозилу. Долгое время пользовался этим браузером и, несмотря на то что он иногда зависает и постоянно отваливается плагин Adobe Flash, уходить с него не хотелось-бы.

My browser was compromised about 6 months ago. I sold that computer about 4 months ago. I never changed my FireFox Sync account password. Someone made purchases on my target account, paypal account, and ebay account. This morning, my microsoft account. They are all completely separate user accounts with different emails attached to them. They also tried compromising my G2A account, but I had no billing information saved with them. Again, these are all different user names and passwords. All of my devices and computers are shut off when the hacker tries compromising my accounts again, around 3AM eastern time. I've changed my password already, is there a way to sign out of all current devices and remove my passwords from those devices? I assume not, what else can I do in this situation other than delete account and change passwords?

I recently bought an HP laptop. It had Chromw loaded, I prefer Firefox. More and more now when I try to open a FF window I get :

"Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot". This is also available:

"This page appears when Google automatically detects requests coming from your computer network which appear to be in violation of the Terms of Service. The block will expire shortly after those requests stop. In the meantime, solving the above CAPTCHA will let you continue to use our services.

This traffic may have been sent by malicious software, a browser plug-in, or a script that sends automated requests. If you share your network connection, ask your administrator for help — a different computer using the same IP address may be responsible. "

Sometimes you may be asked to solve the CAPTCHA if you are using advanced terms that robots are known to use, or sending requests very quickly. I am then forced to go through the Captcha rigmarole and it seems less and less keen to ever let me past.

Within our household we have two other laptops running FF and have no such problems with them

Thoughts and advice would be welcome?

Thanks

I have a number of people hacking me some in the US for unknown reasons and some outside the US because I have family that lives in China. I have someone trying to corrupt my Firefox by installing scripts and toolbars most of which I can remove easily.

This is the second time they have corrupted the address bar for my Firefox. The first time I was able to fix it by re-installing firefox from scratch and re-installing all my plugins. I don't want to do this every time one of the morons hacking me decides on a whim to mess up my firefox to try to get me to use a less secure browser like that disgrace that is internet explorer or some other browser.

Are you guys working on a bug fix for this? I searched around and it seems to be a re-occurring problem with Firefox

On a recent show of Security Now Steve Gibson was talking about Google using ping tracking to spy & track on everything we do and how bad this will be for privacy. I was pleased that it was only google doing this with chrome until this morning he said Firefox are adding it in an upcoming update and when its in you cannot disable it, all in the name of a faster internet. Can anyone tell me why a privacy based browser is using this technology and how will the content/tracking blocking features in Firefox respond to these changes?
