Why does my Firefox link to Facebook send me to someone else?

Why does my Firefox link to Facebook send me to someone else?

Is it a basic link like

https://www.facebook.com/

or something that goes to a particular page?

If links are "hijacked" to strange sites, one possible culprit would be an 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. On the right side, find the "Manage Your Extensions" heading.

Then cast a critical eye over the list below that heading. Any extensions Firefox installs for built-in features are hidden from this page, so everything listed here is your choice (and your responsibility) to manage. Anything suspicious or that you just do not remember installing or why? If in doubt, disable (or remove). For your privacy and security, don't let mystery programs linger here.

Any improvement?

@ leiboldsr82 :

Please ignore "sammanekshaw12321 's" post   -   it's a scam !


@ sammanekshaw12321 :

Your posts will be removed and your account will be deactivated.
And if you try again :   same thing will happen, so you might as well give up.

Hello,

You may have seen a post or received a notification regarding support for Firefox with a link to another site. This is a scam and is not an official site to receive support from Mozilla. Please do not click on the link and do not interact by calling any phone numbers or email addresses listed. You are currently posting on the official Mozilla website and will receive assistance here.

A half hour to late. I got caught. Wish you folks had a real phone number to call.

What link are you using and to what link are you redirected ?

Is this about a link in a mail or a bookmark or something else ?
