I was using dslreports Speed Test http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest?httpsok=0

and it gave me this message: alien script detected moz-extension://658f8192-d5e7-40de-893f-5b62685be017/js/inject.js

Is this something I need to worry about? My internet has been running slow as of late.

You can search the about:debugging page (This Firefox) to see if you can link this UUID to a specific extension.

I gave it a try, but the information was confusing. Also, it would have taken several days.

I tried the old standby, Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode. The message was gone, so I disabled the add-ons a group at a time.

It turned out to be; Name: Disable HTML5 Autoplay Version: 2017.8.20 ID: disable-html5-autoplay@afnankhan


I guess it makes sense. Thank you everyone for your help on this.

Hi

Which add-ons do you have installed in Firefox?

If you open the extensions folder in your Firefox profile? If there a folder or file there with a filename equivalent to the error message you are seeing?

Helpful?

Oops, small mistake. I had several windows open and got confused. Sorry.

I posted the question using Firefox v91.0.2 but the message only appears when using v54 (my default).

Okay, thank you.

Given that this is not happening in 91 (the current ESR version) and is in 54 (which I think was the ESR version before last), I guess there is a choice to make. If you are planning to update, and do not need this looked into, happy to do so.

If you do want this looked into further, I can install a copy of 54 and the not-so-big-name add-ons and see if I can narrow down which one is causing this. This could be a big job considering that the add-ons may have have been updated and the number of add-ons you have installed.

Unfortunately, support volunteers cannot determine which extension that is, because Firefox assigns each extension a randomly generated Internal UUID and that is what is used in the URL of the content script (as discovered by that site).

The information is on the "This Firefox" panel -- you can paste this to the address bar and press Enter to load that page:

about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox

Then use Find in page (Ctrl+F) to find part of the UUID (for example, 658f8192). Assuming it is listed -- disabled extensions are omitted -- you should be able to determine which extension has that "Internal UUID".
