Each morning, when I first cold boot my computer, the moment I open my Firefox browser, I receive numerous (10+) identical error messages from Bitdefender:

Suspicious connection blocked: Feature: Online Threat Prevention

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to content-signature-2.cdn.mozilla.net. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one.

Question: Is this ACTUALLY coming from Firefox? If so, please match your security certificates! If that's impossible due to a technical issue, then please email me your confirmation so that I can add an exception to Bitdefender.

Question: If it's not coming from Firefox, please email me, letting me know what additional system information you require so that we can get to the bottom of who/what is masquerading as Firefox while attempting to establish an unauthorized Internet connection from my computer.

HP Envy laptop, Windows 10 OS, latest update.

This has been occurring for several months.

Thank you for your time.

Dear Supportteam,

Today I browsed true the add-on list of Mozilla Firefox I was searching for Safepal wallet extension to use my cryptocurrency wallet also in the webbrowser. So my searching ended on the following page: https://addons.mozilla.org/nl/firefox/addon/safepal-wallet/ After I installed this extension and logged in with my credentials it was not working. 8 hours later I checked if my funds were still save on my phone software wallet also from Safepal I saw nothing $0,- balance I was deep in shock I saw my last transactions and saw that my funs ($4000,-) were transferred to another wallet. I could not believe it an add-on that is deployed in the add-on list of Mozilla Firefox. Is there no any audit department that is checking every add-on and test it before it get listed on the official add-on store of Mozilla Firefox. Can you please have a look into this add-on before there will be a massive amount of people getting scammed. And also have a look into the developer identity I have found the IP-address of the developer by tracing the mail address. Please have a look into it and maybe their is a solution to help me out.

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.

I want to opt out of the new (slower than molasses) "trusted partner redirect" Firefox gave me ONE chance for 3 seconds before closing the option window.

This has resulted in slowing down an already too slow event in Firefox. This is why users are going to chrome.

It's a great idea as an option. Not a great idea to force it on users.

Thanks for your help,

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.

I´m using Firefox since many years ago. I have installed Firefox 89.02 and I have checked all the options in Dangerous Content Protection: Block dangerous and deceptive content, Block dangerous downloads and Warn you about unwanted and uncommon software. I have install Kaspersky Total Security 21.3 and a few days ago I received an alert: Event: A malicious link has been detected that has already been opened Application active: firefox.exe Component: Antivirus Internet Description: No process Type: Likelihood of an unauthorized software download Name: https://in-page-push.com/400/3906803 Alert: High

Is Firefox blocking dangerous software or not? How to block push notifications that can try to install some kind of malicious program? Thanks for this excellent browser.

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.
