Ocasionally when Firefox starts, a second tab opens, 'addon browser' this is not an add on I'm aware I have added

I have searched the web to find out what this extension is and have found no information, when I open firefox on windows the anti virus blocks it. As it only comes up infrequently I can't include a http address

I'm happy to delete it, do you think it is the source of add-on browser?

Yes, when you search, there is definitely a connection: https://www.google.com/search?q=%22Safe+Web+with+VirusTotal%22

Note how few references there are, and lack of legitimate install sites: this is common for malware extensions, they keep renaming them to make them harder to research.

It’s very sad, but many software downloaders/ installers will trick you into installing not only their program, but other programs as well.

You have heard of the fine print in shady contracts, right? Well, some installers you need to look at the itsy bitsy teeny weeny fine print.

You are thinking you are giving the installer permission to install the program you want by using the recommended option. But if you use the Manual Option Instead, you discover all kinds of stuff that you do not even know what it is or what it does.

From now on, everyone needs to Use The Manual Option to put a stop to this.

Note that these programs can also change browser/computer settings.

Is this the URL:

https://addonbrowser.com/safe-web-with-virustotal?v=1.0.1

Maybe that "Safe Web with VirusTotal" extension you have isn't what you thought it was?

Thanks for the replies, Fred McD, I wasn't aware that this was an option when adding an addon, but I will look for this option next time.

Its a freeware tool by malwarebytes (not an addon) to scan & remove adwares from browsers: (no installation , just run and go) https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

Okay, did you already disable or remove that extension?

You can view, disable, and often remove unwanted or unknown extensions on the Add-ons page. Either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a (Mac: Command+Shift+a)
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
  • type or paste about:addons in the address bar and press Enter/Return

In the left column of the Add-ons page, click Extensions.

Then find "Safe Web with VirusTotal" in the list on the right side and use its ••• menu to disable (or remove).

Any improvement?

Unfortunately Eldar Value, I use Linux, so that would not install?

Hi jscher2000, I have not deleted it as yet, I was kinda waiting to see if that was confirmed as the source of the problem. It only appears about once every two months, so it is going to be difficult to know if the problem is solved

You can try to reset your firefox configuration.

Please note: it will remove everything in the Firefox config - there is no undo. if you need, create backup before.

run the following in the terminal:

rm -rf ~/.mozilla rm -rf ~/.cache/mozilla rm -rf ~/.macromedia/ rm -rf ~/etc/firefox/

Interestingly jscher2000, the web address for that add-on was the one you quoted above, I hadn't noticed that before. It has now been removed. Thank you all for your time. I shall mark this as resolved.
