Hackers have taken control of my Firefox and are maliciously using developer mode to alter settings and change behavior. They have hidden help/feedback icon so I can't send emergency info to firefox. They repeatedly change privacy settings for gmail on firefox to capture/alter my emails. They turn off my google sign in which has protected mode always on so they can load porn, inflammatory politics or foreign crap onto my youtube "recommended videos." They have posed as me and signed up for "developer" software in firefox that manipulates the entire account. They used a different email address and sign in to github on my own computer to do this, and I don't know the email address and can't do this. All of the info in my firefox account is now repeatedly tampered with. They also pose as developers throughout my computer and maliciously change everything. My computer is for an individual, myself who isn't part of any organization and shouldn't have organization "administrators. Can't firefox recognize that these are hackers and eliminate them?

Can't install any add ons

Hi,

I was aware of the recent issues as first reported back on the 3rd May regarding 'Add-ons disabled or failing to install in Firefox' (https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2019/05/04/update-regarding-add-ons-in-firefox/comment-page-5/) in which workarounds were offered or users were advised to update to the latest version. I myself am using the latest version 67.0. I can see all my installed add-ons and can even update and install them where required, but I cannot seem to install any new add-ons at all.

I have included two screenshots showing that I am using the latest version and the second which does not show the usual 'Install add-on' but instead shows the button 'Only with firefox, get firefox now, even though I have firefox installed.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I ran into an issue with a pop-up window that didn't want to close, and a simple google search provided the answer of abandon all open tabs and start from scratch... That's not particularly an idea I fancy!

I actually discovered a very simple solution, but I can't post it anywhere because all of the posts are archived!

The malicious pop-up was opening another window, to supposedly enter access credentials. This was keeping me from being able to close the window, and when I closed this alternate window, it would pop right back before I could do anything else. A light bulb forms!

I disabled my computers wireless connection, via the network and internet settings, and the pop-up was no longer able to restore the access credentials window. Close the malicious pop-up, and restore internet connection!

I would like to share this work-around with others that may have a similar issue, but can't find any open posts about it. Can a Mod help me out with this task?

p I have taken great pains to opt out of all these privacy sharing websites such as mylife.com. However, if I type my name in the search bar in my Firefox browser immediately on the top an non-existent listing for me from mylife .com appears with my name, age and location prominently displayed for all to see. Please remove this. There is no page. I want my identity protected and my privacy restored.

I am very upset with Firefox when C Google was able to do this easily with information I provided on a dedicated page.

Firefox Version 63.0 (64-bit) Home build PC, 480GB SSD, 2 x 2TB HD's, 8GB Ram.

I have had problems with streaming Channel 4 TV UK for many years. I could only get it to work on Windows. Recently I have Dumped Window 10 - so slow - updates take all day. I now am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (using Linux since 2009)

Channel 4 say they Do Not support Linux ?

I have tried to install Adobe Flash Player, but does not seam to work or download. On Ch 4 web page I pressed Allow, but say that I should install Flash Player !

Please could anyone advice me what I can do, or what I have done wrong.

Regards, Richard.

Out of nowhere, a Mozilla Firefox opened in fundal with some weird name like wqkt12essddfg34sdsdgdse24awsd42312.... and I couldn't maximize. After like 20 seconds it disappeared. But when I started up my pc the Mozilla tab appeared again, made everything black and I had to restart windows explorer to regain access to my computer.

I tried to scan with Malwarebytes, Bitdefender, Avast, etc and nothing. I reinstalled my windows after I formatted all my hard drive, and after I installed only google chrome and graphics card driver, the Mozilla tab popped up again. And I don't even installed Mozilla Firefox on my new windows. I don't get it. I posted a picture to see that it looks like an old version of Firefox, not a new one.
