Firefox shows start page 1 second and then "easymap" takes over?

Размещено

My Firefox home page has been usurped by "easymap". When I open FF it shows my FF home page for one second and then a blank screen and then :easymap" appears with the line for the URL. I have tried to locate "easymap" on my programs, no luck. Tried to uninstall it, no luck. Ad-aware gave no luck. What to do? I suspect it attacked from Facebook, which I was trying to abandon.

                                                                                                                                       Thanks, from the Great white North (Edmonton)

Hi Paul, I don't use a password manager myself, although I probably should. It gets boring waiting for emails to reset them. :-)

Hi Tietzen, is this problem on your Windows 7 computer? (Your question posted under FirefoxOS, which is a mobile phone OS.) I will assume so.

One possible culprit would be an extension. You can view, disable, and often remove unwanted or unknown extensions on the Add-ons page. Either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a (Mac: Command+Shift+a)
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
  • type or paste about:addons in the address bar and press Enter/Return

In the left column of the Add-ons page, click Extensions.

Then cast a critical eye over the list on the right side. Any extensions Firefox installs for built-in features are hidden from this page, so everything listed here is your choice (and your responsibility) to manage. Anything suspicious or that you just do not remember installing or why? If in doubt, disable (or remove).

Any improvement?

Thanks for the help. Mysteriously, it has disappeared as of now. I will retain your advice as insurance. Any suggestion on which password protection program to use? I am going nuts trying to remember and properly record about 40 passwords. Best, Paul T
