A group of experienced hackers have made my devices their target. They continue to remove any security I try to place on my computer, i.e., downloading developer apps which allow them to administer the computer and devices.

They have maliciously targeted my business and sabotaged a lot of my apps so that they will not work. Going to the "Authorities" is a waste of time. so I will not discuss this.

I need help in tracing the street trash thugs who continue to access my computer, place malicious malware and worms on my computer so that it will not function at his required level, and replacing bonafide adds with fake apps so that they can control and conduct surveillance on all of my Apple Devices.

I have reported this problem to Apple and they are worthless. Not enough training, and the service is inferior.

I need upper level technical support to identify how they are manipulating my browsers so that they provide absolutely no security.

Malwarebytes is manipulated, Avast as well, and they have downloaded an app that allow them to share my screen and collect all of my passwords as they are individually entered.

I just downloaded Firefox as a first install on a new installation of windows. When I open twitch there is no volume control bar, the ability to put the stream into full screen or theater mode, or the ability to change the quality of the stream. Is there something I need to turn on to get this working?

Firefox came preinstalled as snap package on ubuntu 18.04, but has been giving trouble since

I'm running through problems when downloading files:

The only way I can view a downloadable file is by saving it somewhere in my home directory and then open it which is a pain!

The open with dialog box only give url script handler and firefox browser as options neither of each work

On ubuntu support it was suggested to remove snap package and install deb package, but what's the point of a snap package then?

It look s like firefox doesn't handle anything beyond home directory, while as said above chrome does instead

Any clues

I recently noticed that the Windows 7 feature of searching the internet directly from the start menu (via policy and explained here does not work any longer. The search string is not pasted into the seach box. The feature still works with Chrome 83, so it is safe to assume it's not an OS issue.

I am running a 2008 Imac on OS 10.11.6, and using Firefox 77.0.1 (64 bit).

Much of my work is online with one website, which I log onto daily. Today, I was unable to login because I received a "Did Not Connect. Potential Security Issue." I restarted, made sure Firefox was up to date, etc. The problem repeated.

Then I tried the website in Chrome. I got the same thing. I tried it in Safari. I got the same thing.

I called the company and spoke with tech support. He was unable to recreate my problem on his PC or his Mac. He confirmed that there was no certificate issue at the company and that they were not getting any other similar complaints or problems.

I then tried it on a Mac running 10.15, and was able to access the website easily, with no error messages.

My question is: is the problem my computer, and not the browsers or connections? Is there anything I can do short of buying a new computer?

Thanks for the help. Greg

I use firefox browser for work, and sometimes when I open it it has changed back to some previous version - not the actual browser, it always says it's up to date, but my bookmarks and everything are old. And all of a sudden it won't remember any of my passwords. And then I'll open it another day and it will be back to normal with all the correct bookmarks and my passwords saved. Any ideas?

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?

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

I have scanned with Malwarebytes and Windows Security and they can't find anything.

So yeah, I don't know why but since yesterday it has been acting strange. I haven't tinkered with anything if my memory serves right. Whenever I try to open a website or the Preferences page or anything -- it is blank! I can't open new tabs too. I tried various solutions like no Hardware Acceleration, refreshing and even re-installation. However, what is weird is, I can use Firefox alright with Window's Safe Mode (not Firefox's, Window's).

I tried clearing AppData and some other stuff and am getting no response. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
