I am positive about Firefox is the most secure browser and have evidence of it. Nevertheless the following site could traspass the Firefox barriers: https://www.eldestapeweb.com/ I am concerned on the survival of Free World and consecuently of Free Software. I guess the above mentioned site belongs to a parapolitical official organization. I consider that for it's job obtained tech help from some powerful international group. The average user of Firefox is unprevented of this issue. I am not asking for help in my behalf, because I have the necesary time to help myself. I suggest the Mozilla guys to investigate the facts. Sincery yours, Edgardo Colombo Buenos Aires.

I need help! Everyday I have at least 8 Chinese Hackers that show up on on the top in the list of websites visited on my Firefox. The entire page is in Chinese with Chinese pictures. Please see the attached images. I have no idea how long they have been there prior to being so bold to openly show themselves. I certainly have no idea of what they have uploaded or downloaded on my laptop. How can I get rid of them and what can i do to prevent them coming back? I know a lot of weird things have been going on in my computer that I have absolutely no reason nor explanation for. this has been going on for at least the last couple of years or more. I have had 3 computers to crash in a short period of time which I feel they have done. Spyware shows I have had a keylogger for a long time but all of the files it takes me to are protected and I have not been able to delete them. BillCowanjr@gmail.com

Malware Auto Download with Capital One Download URL

I happened on a page: https://capitaloneshopping.com/join-capital-one-shopping?utm_source=Meerkat&utm_campaign=107592707702&utm_term=472928718855&gclid=EAIaI… (read more)

I happened on a page: https://capitaloneshopping.com/join-capital-one-shopping?utm_source=Meerkat&utm_campaign=107592707702&utm_term=472928718855&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI0Ij6h5iD7QIVgi0MCh2TLgrJEAEYASAAEgJALvD_BwE

And it immediately began "downloading an app" and I quit the page before it could get far, but, obviously, that doesn't mean it stopped. However, now Firefox is acting a little wiggy, and I'm concerned it might have downloaded something that's affecting the browser. Was trying to read about "capital one shopping malware," and pages wouldn't open when any links on the search results were clicked, etc.

Is this a known issue? Resolutions offered?

Words just "appear", the messages get sent before I even press "send". Often the document is still in edit mode! When I do "send", I find that multiple duplicates were sent! What happened & what can I do about it?? Page frames flicker then realign. I don't trust fb anymore & What should I do? Both fb & google!! Google has most of my passwords! I've been watching it all degrade. Is the "Droid" Malware is suspected of anything.

I was searching for some music online, and I came across a website. It redirected me to a duplicate page, that is designed exactly like Firefox Addons. Now that site automatically loads whenever I open my Firefox browser and keeps installing an addon without any permissions, even if the "Get addon" button isn't clicked. The URL of the site is https://black-mode-for-browser.site/Dark%20Fox%20%E2%80%93%20Get%20this%20Theme%20for%20%F0%9F%A6%8A%20Firefox%20(en-US).php. Please beware before checking on this link.

Tell me how to remove FreeTestNow from my PC.

Mozilla Firefox:

   Click the Menu button (three bars) on the right upper corner of the screen
   Select "Options" and click on "Privacy & Security" in the toolbar on the left hand side of the screen
   Scroll down to the "Permissions" section and click the "Settings" button next to "Notifications"
   In the opened window, locate all suspicious URLs, click the drop-down menu and select "Block"

I see no """Options""" when I click the Menu button so I can't remove FreeTestNow from my PC (Catch - 22?)

So how do I get to """Options""", then scroll down to the "Permissions" section?

Thank you for your help.

Whereas MS Edge Defender Screen did a wonderful job, and also Norton safe web did well in this regard.
