Have updated Firefox and always make sure I have downloaded the recent version but keep getting spam pop-ups which is absolutely ridiculous. I could be reading an email OR an article and the spam pop-ups will bring the red screen and ask me to download. I always have to pay extra attention that I don't "download" and allow POS spammers to take over my life. Amazing Firefox is not aware of these spam pop-ups OR just don't care !!!!!

Today's spam pop-up: firefox-pahl.js - https//oochaons96.org

For the last few weeks, I have been getting fake Firefox Urgent Update popups. Being suspicious, I just opened Task Manager and closed all my Firefox links; cleared my cookies; and, then, when I ran my anti-virus, it showed a clean scan. But, the popup is still a hassle.

After carefully noting what websites I had open when it re-appeared, I narrowed it down to the free web radio site that I use to listen to Blues. Here is the link for the home page: https://theworldofblues.com/OnlineBluesRadio/contact-us/

Note that the popup does not re-appear when I have just the home page opened. Yet, when I click on the link to, "On Air Now Listen Live", in less than ten minutes the probe appears.

I also took a photo of the file download info and am trying to upload that photo to this message; however, it is taking a long time, so I do not know whether it is going to load (a photo in a jpg format). Anyway, here is the file information that shows up:

firefox-patch.js 3.9 KB - shixueroski.net - August 17

Tonight, I wrote to the IT Tech group of the website, to notify them about the malware linked to their site. I want them to purge it so that I can safely use their services.

Anyway, I wanted to let Firefox know of my deductions and actions taken. If I can provide any other assistance, I would be pleased to help.

Almost every time I am on Facebook and click on Farmville to play that game, the first time I click on to go to my farm, I've been getting the "official-looking" red firefox screen and logo pop up with a gray colored pop up box that says it's an urgent firefox update. I've never clicked on the save button, I alwasy click cancel, close the pop up box, go back to Facebook and click on Farmville again, and everything runs fine, The latest one I encountered says it was a Java script coming from the following link, again it popped up after I logged into Facebook, and clicked on Farmville. Here's the link and file info: Urgent firefox update firefox-patch.js JavaScript File (2.6 KB) from https://podaimt2.net https://podaimt2.net/4761283090238/bea2ae3697608b4f8ce3a682c30d7e46.html

It would be so helpful if we could create an account to reply to existing threads rather than starting up a new one, but since we can't, I guess I'll have to use this method.

The firefox "urgent update" malware is definitely alive and well. Another company's website where this is being delivered up as a paid advertisement, and the one that I always get redirected to it from, is http://fiostrending.verizon.com/news/

These companies really need to choose a better source for their advertisements, if they insist on forcing them on their customers, if their sites are being hijacked by this malware!

Interestingly enough, the hit-and-run website that I'm being redirected to NEVER shows up in my browsing history.

A scammer is taking over CNN.com's page, pretending to be a Firefox update, and I captured the URL this time.

The URL was: https://eekiewanknews.net/8981613244252/efa132387dde53efa4fde122b6b57d7a.html It used the Firefox logo on a similarly-colored background as you use. A popup… (閱讀更多)

The URL was:

https://eekiewanknews.net/8981613244252/efa132387dde53efa4fde122b6b57d7a.html

It used the Firefox logo on a similarly-colored background as you use. A popup also appeared. I stopped the browser, scanned for viruses and found none, and restarted and came here to report. Perhaps this will help you determine who is behind hacking Firefox.

Thank you again for all you do.

I have been seeing an entire orange screen which tells me it is important I do a download right away. It kept popping up so I clicked download and then noticed the URL looked suspicious. I can't remember it entirely but I remember it had japan at the end of it. Has anybody else received this? Does anyone know if this is legit or is it a hack? By the way, why doesn't foxfire have a way to just ask them a question? This is stupid customer service. This is about as dumb as some of the stupid questions 911 asks when someone calls them with an urgent life saving need.

I was just interrupted in my browsing by a "flash screen" which had the Firefox logo and a dialogue asking me to download a Patch. I've downloaded by not opened the patch to install it. This is the first time in decades of computer work that I've every seen anything like this. Is this a legit Firefox patch? Or some sort of hack?
