Recently every time (well, most times), I click within a previously trusted website, for example to choose a date, move to the next screen, checkout, etc., the action opens another tab also usually, but not always, sex-related. While within the original site, the click does what it is supposed to do. How can I stop these unwanted new tabs from opening new websites? Sometimes after a series of "clicks" in the original website, I will have 6-8 unwanted new website tabs open! Also, recently sex-related sidebar ads are appearing on some of my favorite but sites--they aren't so annoying as I can just ignore them. I've done a scan using McAfee AND Microsoft Security Essentials and neither one found anything. Help please.

Unresponsive script alert on Google sites/products when logged in

This may be a bug on Google's end, but it only happens on Firefox. Even more specifically, it only happens on my computer at work (a mac using OS X Mavericks) and not at home (a PC using Windows 7).

I sometimes leave tabs opened on Google search results, so I can come back to them if my search is inconclusive. If I'm logged in my Google account, while I'm on another tab, Firefox will often suddenly hang and move to the Google Search tab to display the unresponsive script alert. This does not happen when I'm not logged in. The script seems to be Google+ related.

I use about the same extensions at work that I use at home - fewer, in fact.

What could I do to resolve this, other than log out? I like to stay logged in to quickly access Google Drive (which also hangs if I leave it opened).

For some time now it happens, that sometimes if i switch between my tabs a "picture" of my old tab stays in front of the new tab. It disappears if i switch again or hover over links or pictures etc. in the new tab (Just hovering over the picture doesnt make it disappear) Take this Website, if i switch from here to spotify and dont move my mouse, it seems like the tab wouldnt have changed. when the site loads sth, the par being loaded or changed will then be the real part from spotify (If a song is playing, the progress bar will be seen in a little square as big as the graphic for it is). If i hover over elements on that website, they will be seen, also the background behind them, but parts without buttons will not be changed to normal unless i switch to another tab and back. If it is unclear what i mean i will do a video or post some pictures to clarify. This happens like every 20th time i switch a tab, so not alltime.

Greetings

How do I clear out the credentials in Settings for a particular website? The tech guy at that website said to do this to solve an issue.

According to my friendly tech guy, "this seems to be your browser trying to pre-populate a value into" a particular field on 2-3 forms on the website. The word "Password" pops up when I click on an email address field to enter an email address. I can still enter the address, and it's accepted, but the pop-up is confusing to me and other users, causing some to enter a password, which is not accepted. The advice is "go into your browser's settings and clear out the credentials that are saved for www.flashconsign.com and it should not happen anymore." I don't know where to find Firefox's Settings, and once I do find it, I'm not sure I'll know how to proceed. I'd appreciate some help! I'm using a PC with Windows 7.

I have FF on my desktop & laptop Macs. Will FF Synch MERGE (desired) or OVERWRITE (definitely NOT desired!) my bookmarks & bm folders & sub-folders if I synch?

I have a Mac desktop and a Mac laptop. Both have Firefox with a very big directory of bookmarks organized into subject folder, sub-folders, & sub-sub-folders, etc. I've been trying to keep them matched manually, but it's a big job. Firefox Synch looks good but I have one HUGE concern that I need to get answered before I use it. If I start Synch on one of my computers is it going to overwrite my folder structure on the other computer? That would be BAD. Or will it properly MERGE them? That would be very good.... thanks anyone

I will be looking at a website, nothing in particular all of a sudden the screen reverts back to my desktop. I have waited several minutes for the website / Firefox to reappear, it will not reappear til I move my mouse. I think this is very strange. when it does reappear, it is on the same page with my cursor at the same position. I do not get any "crash" warnings or any kind of notice of what is happening. The screen I was looking at simply disappears and reappears when I touch my mouse. Has anyone encountered this before? Or is it my friends playing tricks on me? Just because I am paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't messing with me? Seriously can someone help me with this dilemma? Thank you in advance. Biomac121

Something called ShopAtHome.com is on my computer and it seems to interfere when I try to navigate to a website I want to view. Also I have no need for ShopAtHome. I tried to get rid of toolbar but it came back. Then I tyuped <how to get rid of ...> into Google saw a response to first click on Firefox icon at top of screen, then look for a Extensions Tab Well, I didn't find any Extension Tab to click on. Nada. .Maybe that instruction is obsolete? Please tell me a current, viable means of eradicating ShopAtHome tool bar and any underlying cookie or malware lurking behind the scenes? ShopAtHome can go to Digital Hell.
