The new firefox should have some malware protection by default? I thought I can use it without blocking addons, maybe a mistake?

On searching the web by google I came on a webpage, where another page suddenly opened and I could not leave with back button. Just another fake page opened.

I scanned the pages here (others are in the comment): https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/518ffb491d9ae673e803a930d05aae5bd0db9536a93197bfb2a874de76009af2

Could there be some infection? What can I do now to be save?

I deleted cache inside firefox and after that a scan with clamscan. It could not find anything on my device.

Thank you

EVERYTIME I open up Mozilla FireFox, my Norton Security Software pops up with a dialog box that says, it has blocked "Web Attack: Fake Tech Support Website 62". This has been going on for about a 3 days now. Is there anything you can do to your FireWall and Other Security Software from allowing this Virus from trying to attack Mozilla FireFox? Please advise.

The promo for it appeared on a major website and I foolishly clicked out of curiosity. Now it has reconfigured my new tab page in Firefox and apparently ditched my preferred search engine (DuckDuckGo). I've search how to uninstall it but have found nothing that fits the situation. Can anyone help?

Google has taken over my computers, and have control of my browsers, phones, all my devices to include my printer. I just want to completely clean Firefox but there are files that they have made unavailable for me to delete. They went into my windows system files and loaded me down with add-on's and are using Parental Controls to limit my access to my own computer. Maybe it would be better if I closed my account and opened a new one after all my devices are clean, and back in my full control?

Firefox has served me faithfully for years but this week another uninvited program has over-ridden and blocked access to, Firefox. The culprit seems to be search.gmx.com

When I first spotted it, I attempted to uninstall it with CCleaner and all reference to it seemed to have disappeared but it still comes up when I try to open Firefox.

A web search (using another computer) has failed to provide an answer to getting rid of this program that I am capable of following.

Any help will be appreciated but I am not well versed in the technicalities which may be involved in getting rid of this for good. Thank you. Rick.

I have a number of people hacking me some in the US for unknown reasons and some outside the US because I have family that lives in China. I have someone trying to corrupt my Firefox by installing scripts and toolbars most of which I can remove easily.

This is the second time they have corrupted the address bar for my Firefox. The first time I was able to fix it by re-installing firefox from scratch and re-installing all my plugins. I don't want to do this every time one of the morons hacking me decides on a whim to mess up my firefox to try to get me to use a less secure browser like that disgrace that is internet explorer or some other browser.

Are you guys working on a bug fix for this? I searched around and it seems to be a re-occurring problem with Firefox

Apple Mac Pro (early 2009). Firmware 4.1 -> 5.1 macOS 10.13.5 Firefox 60.0.1

Hello, I have been using Firefox Quantum 60 and it has been working fine. I've just rebooted my machine and started Firefox. It gave me a message about how some process was acting strangely and might possibly be trying to start a ransomware attack. It listed 7 suspicious cache filenames and gave me the choice of blocking or trusting. I panicked slightly and clicked Trust. didn't think to grab a screenshot of this activity. Now when I try to launch Firefox, nothing happens whatsoever. I still have other copies of Firefox, namely the old Firefox, the Developer Edition, and the FirefoxNightly build, but I wanted to check with you before doing anything else and possibly making matters worse.

I hope you can help! I don't like being without Firefox for too long!

Thanks in advance, Carl

Blocking http://searchguide.windstream.net which automatically fills url box with an unsolicited search result and displays: 414 Request-URI Too Large

Whenever a mistake is made in typing a url, http://searchguide.windstream.net automatically appears to try and search an alternate result, but instead fills the URL box with pages of jibberish that takes minutes to remove or delete, and then apparently times out and flags its own unsolicited efforts:

414 Request-URI Too Large

Simply X-ing out the tab and starting over is an option, but still a nuisance.

Blocking this particular web site, http://searchguide.windstream.net, would probably resolve the issue without blocking other services provided by Windstream.

Here is an example: If "democracynow.com" is entered instead of "democracynow.org" a huge amount of garbage is thrown into the url window by this unsolicited "searchguide" website and the following error message is presented by this unauthorized search effort: "414 Request-URI Too Large"

Other websites redirect appropriately, like "http://www.vitaletherapeutics.com" redirects without to "http://www.vitaletherapeutics.org" without automatically invoking http://searchguide.windstream.net and without creating the error message: "414 Request-URI Too Large"

If this is a form of web censorship and denial of access, I want to know more about it and help other web sites to take action to help ensure 1st Amendment inspired net neutrality, and to curb censorship.

Partial URL box/window content after unsolicited "searchguide" activity:

My malware program keeps saying that this: ecp.yusercontent.com is constantly trying to send information out of my computer and is calling it RISKWARE.

Why is this constantly wanting out and is hooked to the Mozilla file? Do I need to remove the epc file?

Thank you for your insight and help, Bill

When Firefox was reopened after a reboot, Norton detected an intrusion attempt from a fake website. What's strange is two things: 1. The website was last accessed erroneously (misspelled it when entering it on address bar) three weeks prior. 2. The fake website was not being opened by any of the tabs reopened when Firefox loaded! Note that the reboot and reloading of Firefox mentioned above happened after another Norton warning that it detected a large amount of outbound network traffic. That warning occurred while I was cleaning up my long browsing history in order to reduce memory usage by Firefox. As a result of the warning, I ran several scans using Norton's Power Eraser, none of which resulted in any related security issues detected.

So, short of the offending website having hijacked a legitimate Add-on already installed when the site was first accessed, which I'm finding hard to believe, I cannot understand how that website could attempt to do anything if none of the tabs being opened from the previous session are pointing to it! Or can it, and could it have been running in the background all this time, stealing keystrokes and/or data from my computer - all from one quick linking to it, without any further access therein????? Is there a way to see what commands Firefox is executing at start-up and during a session?

Hi - first time i got scared by malware today - opened FF and processor went crazy - so i exited it via taskman - but a second window had opened uncommanded - investigating via history clearly its a nefarious link.

i have ghostery and other protection so thankfully it seems no damage was done. but i dont know if this was phishing or what - perhaps more aggressive in fact??

posted to phishing reporting site just now - but thought i'd post here too in case other people have this problem, and to maybe learn more. going to install ublock addin after reading an earlier post.

wasn't doing anything remotely sketchy when this hit but investigating keyboard layouts at kbd-intl.narod.ru/english/layouts - which SEEMED innocent and useful enough.... but clearly that was the trigger - hibids10.com/ is also implicated - maybe i clicked on an image or something.
