I keep getting these annoying links that are double-underlined in my browser web-sites. I have disabled the Pass Show add-on. I have uninstalled the Pass Show program using the XP Control Panel and reset Firefox from the Troubleshooting menu but the pass show double-underlined links keep showing up.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

hello Chindi, when you have it present, could you go to firefox > help > troubleshooting information, copy its exact name, version and id from the listing there and paste it here into a forum reply - this could make it possible for mozilla to take further action on it...

afterwards please run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner.

Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.
