I'm a long time user on my desktop. This is a problem on my iPad. I was having a problem all day, getting a panic message from >mine-online-webs-web.win< saying my iPad was infected with 2 viruses. "Do not leave this page" was the gist of the message but download a fix. I didn't.

In most cases, the alerts or pop-ups on iOS/Android devices that claim your device is infected and requires cleaning are false virus alerts. If you are unable to close the Welcome web page in Firefox, or the pop-up persists, it's suggested to clear the cache of the web browser on your mobile device. Here's a quick guide guide on this matter.

Hi designrchap, I don't know how you ended up on that page. There are a variety of technique to "trap" browsers and make it difficult to escape, but I haven't encountered one on mobile yet so I'm not sure what options you have to close such a tab. If all else fails, removing the app and reinstalling it might help because that may have the side effect of clearing history and avoiding that tab being restored.

Turns out I swiped the offending "Welcome" page on my fresh download to the left, got to a bunch options and finally sorted it all out. spent 20 minutes getting it to sync with my iPhone. Thanks for your suggestions. David
