I set Google as my default search engine. However, when I open Firefox, I see a box that says "Potential Threat Detected". The page is headed with a wifi symbol inside a blue shield and below that is says "Hold On!" We blocked access to http://www.searchbaron.com/v1/hp?aid=26025. This site might compromise your device or contain dangerous content. To avoid these risks, close this window and skip this site. Proceed anyway. The same message is duplicated in 3 other languages. So I open a new tab and close this one and everything works fine. Can anyone tell me what to do to stop getting this? I'm not computer savvy so please be specific. I'm not close to an Apple Store, but can get to one if I have to.

I have used the ... MYPOINTS.COM ... website for many years with the FIREFOX browser. It stopped loading a few days ago. I have tried many different things to get the site to load without any success. Any ideas what is going on and how I can get this site to load again?

My guess is some setting has been changed or I need to change a setting to get this site to load.

I am running FIREFOX 90.0.2 (64-bit) on a MAC POWERBOOK laptop

All i get is a hollow white circle (with a red strip) spinning around and the site will no longer load.

see attached picture of the white circle with red strip that spins and the version of FIREFOX I am running.

My firefox tabs has been crashing, and it has been getting far far worse. Practically none of the tab will open longer than 5 milliseconds. Other browsers works perfectly fine. I tried starting it on safe mode, no good. Tried clean reinstalling firefox, no good.

Can anyone help me why firefox is specifically crashing? About a month ago it worked perfectly fine.
