Over the past 48 hours there have been at least ten breaches of my account. At first I assumed it was a breach of PayPal when someone used it to purchase a $3000 laptop on Newegg. I figured it couldn't be Firefox because Mozilla is pretty good with that sorta thing and because the only fraud was via my PayPal account. Well ... just over an hour ago someone attempted to purchase a $2200 laptop with my Amazon account using a completely different payment method, and I received several emails in both my Gmail and Protonmail regarding several accounts which I did not create. Firefox is the only browser I use, and I have passwords stored in it; I'll have to change all of them and remove them to a thumb drive. But Firefox appears to have a data breach ongoing right now. I can share screenshots if necessary but I will have to redact personal information and that will of course take time.

Password Breached (not Google Pwd) Extortion Emails Received

I just received the following extortion email (I use aol)

'"I know leaddog49 is one of your password on day of hack.. Lets get directly to the point.

Not one person has paid me to check about you.

You do not know me and you're probably thinking why you are getting this email?

in fact, i actually placed a malware on the adult vids (adult porn) website and you know what, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what i mean).

When you were viewing videos, your browser started out operating as a RDP having a key logger which provided me with accessibility to your display and web cam.

immediately after that, my malware obtained every one of your contacts from your Messenger, FB, as well as email account.

after that i created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were viewing (you have a nice taste omg), and 2nd part displays the recording of your cam, and its you.

Best solution would be to pay me $1094. We are going to refer to it as a donation. in this situation, i most certainly will without delay remove your video

My -BTC -address : 3Mupam8PLCSzNoHmg7ns9WzxA86DsCZRnu [case SeNSiTiVe, copy & paste it]

You could go on your life like this never happened and you will not ever hear back again from me. You'll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search 'how to buy bitcoin' in Google).

if you are planning on going to the law, surely, this e-mail can not be traced back to me, because it's hacked too.

I have taken care of my actions. i am not looking to ask you for a lot, i simply want to be paid.

if i do not receive the bitcoin;, i definitely will send out your video recording to all of your contacts including friends and family, co-workers, and so on.

Nevertheless, if i do get paid, i will destroy the recording immediately.

If you need proof, reply with Yeah then i will send out your video recording to your 8 friends.

it's a nonnegotiable offer and thus please don't waste mine time & yours by replying to this message."


I used the pword shown in the past but not on any of my current sites. The one site that has something similar (but the same) is an HTTPS site and I checked using SSL Trust and it shows the website has no vulnerabilities. I also checked on https://haveibeenpwned.com/ I've been pawnd 4 times but never that site and the latest was back in 2017. I run 2 antivirus programs (webroot and Windows Defender and neither detected or has reported any malware.

I assume I should ignore this extortion email, and I changed the pwd on the site with the similar one. Is there anything I need to do beside that?

When using voice.google.com in Firefox the recipient can't hear me at all. This problem is intermittent. After I've restarted my Mac, things seem to work fine for a while. Then, after a while, the recipient can't hear me when I make a call.

I've given Firefox permission for google to use the internal microphone. The mic symbol flashes red. Another issue: the flashing red mic keeps flashing even after the phone call is ended.

I've tried clearing out cookies/cache, closing/reopening the page, closing/reopening the browser.

I've tried google voice in Chrome. I was not mute in that call. Thanks for any help.

When I watch Netflix videos the picture-in-picture button does not appear (Firefox v. 7.9.0 on a Windows 10 machine with AdBlock Plus for Firefox addon enabled) . Picture-in-picture is enabled in my Firefox options and works fine for videos from other web sites, such as YouTube. It was also working fine for Netflix until lst week. Have tried turning my ad blocker off and also the right-click on/off toggle for picture-in-picture while playing video but problem persists. All drivers on machine are up to date.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem? Any ideas on why this is happening with just Netflix? Thanks!

This issue seemed to start with version 79.0

Firefox seems to not be able to differentiate between a AD image and eBay email notification image.

Any help appreciated,

In the last few days, a process called MainThread, using a lot of CPU time, has started appearing in my Ubuntu system monitor "top". I was worried that it was malware, and checked to see if it might be part of software I had recently installed. After checking with the software providers I had most recently dealt with, I didn't find any that said the MainThread process belonged to them. Then I noticed that the "firefox" process had disappeared from the system monitor. I suspect that MainThread is the new name for firefox, but I would like some confirmation of that theory. If that is the case, why change the name of the process from something recognizable to something unrecognizable? Thanks for any help you can give!

Recently switched over from Chrome and I'm liking it so far with one semi-major annoyance.

If I'm watching a YouTube (or any site) video in full screen mode, I don't see any of my Mac notifications until I exit full screen. With Chrome, those notifications continue to appear while I'm in full screen.

Is there any setting in Firefox I can enable or disable to change that behavior?

ПОМОГИТЕ Произошла проблема с переключением мультимедии,. Решил перейти с браузера Chrome на Firefox, и столкнулся следующей проблемой: Я не могу переключать музыку и видео с помощью горячих клавиш на клавиатуре, таких как F12,F11,F9, данные клавиши у меня использовались как макрос на наушниках и я в любой момент и в любом приложении, мог переключить музыку, которая играла в браузере через наушники, что было очень удобно ( также можно было и ставить на паузу видео). И вот сейчас я всё сделал и перенёс все данные, но найти решение данной проблемы не могу, тк это окошко с мультимедией просто не открывается и не работает

menubar no longer shows in a new window opened with window.open? I am running Firefox Ver. 79.0 (64-bit); Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0; on Ubuntu Bionic 18.04 I use the following javascript code in <head> to open a new window: <script> </script> The body is as follows: <body bgcolor="#F2E8DE" onLoad="nameThisWindow()">

Click <a href="javascript:openHomePage()">Open Homepage</a> to open Homepage.htm in a new Window. </body> This code will not display the menubar in the new window (HomePage). The new window opens, resizes, relocates, has scrollbars, has address bar and has the [Open menu] option to the right of the address bar. The way it should except for the menubar on my desktop computer. If I right click on [Open Menu] in the new window it shows a check mark before Menu Bar. If I uncheck it, it closes the menubar in the window that opened it (HomePageCaller). If I click on Customize in HomePage, it opens the customize window in a new Tab in HomePageCaller. If I open a link in HomePage with "Open Link in New Tab" it opens the link in HomePageCaller. If I open a link in HomePage with "Open Link in New Window" it opens the new window with a menubar like it should. I have opened about:config to change all nine of the "dom.disable_window_open" options to "false" and restarted the computer. This did not change anything? I have removed all content from the<head> except the <title> in the new window page. I have removed all content from the <body> except a line that says it is the new window. All to no avail. Thank you for any help someone can provide, Rob
