I have firefox mozilla installed on two PC's both windows 10 On my laptop I can go to YTS.ag and bowse and pick downlaods .. no issues no virus related issues and all is good ...

My other PC with win 10 and Mozilla the moment I land on YTS.ag I get a pop up stating my PC is infected please contact such and such number etc etc ..

Both PC's have the same virus program installed and whe nI run fixme stick on either PC it comes up clean no malware

So I know this is just a 'browser related malware' only It is set up to set the warning when a PC without something activated is on that IP address...

.. but why one PC no issues the other not? answer: one of the PC's have something activated and one doesn't ..

trouble is I don't know what this is to activate or deactivate ..?

Ideas answers ??

thanks

Is there any difference in the content blockers, security software, or network routing between the two Firefoxes? Some intrusive support scam popups and redirects may be blocked by script blockers, ad blockers, and tracking blockers within Firefox, and some may be blocked by external features such as security software and DNS-based filters.

. Whenever you get a message / popup like that;

DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PROVIDED LINKS OR ANY PHONE NUMBERS ! !

Such messages are only Spam that could lead you to Fake Support. Not only can they damage or hack your system, they charge you to do so.

You can report such a site at; Google Report Phishing Page {web link} which is the same when done while on site by going to Help > Report Web Forgery

Help us safeguard Mozilla’s trademarks by reporting misuse {web link}

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
