when I log onto firefox I get "You are about to log in to the site "johndavisgallery.com" with the username "www%2Eart", but the website does not require authentication. This may be an attempt to trick you. Is "johndavisgallery.com" the site you want to visit? How do I get rid of this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
OK, try this.
Firefox is a browser. It doesn't have a login function. Do you see that message simply by launching Firefox?
yes it pops up before my homepage comes up and I have to click yes or no.
Do you have the popup blocker enabled in the Tools | Options Content menu? See Block popups
Just downloaded Firefox 4 and had hard time finding options. Seems like I do have popup windows blocked. If I unblock it will this go away?
No, you should keep it enabled. It should prevent this from happening.
The company mentioned in your post title appears to be legitimate, so I don't think you've indavertently installed a browser hijacker somehow.
But you mentioned in the beginning that you always had to "logon" to Firefox? Where exactly? Are you the only user?
I shouldn't have said that when I log on. I meant when I open firefox. I am the only user.
Try running Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode. Do you see the popup when you do that? If it fails to appear in that configuration, then one of your add-ons is the culprit.
I started it with addons disabled which is safe mode, right? It still popped up.
I got a message that you answered again but I don't see another answer....
