I use firefox and pay for the vpn from firefox. Last week I encountered a ransomware attack. The Firefox immediately quarantined the attack. I am having no issues with using the computer. What was affected is Firefox itself. I cannot open Firefox at this point. I get permission denied messages upon launch. I have tried reinstalling a number of times in both the standard login and administrative login environments but I get the same results in both. Where do I go from here? Thanks Pat Imbriglio ...

There is a folder called 'Amozilla' containing a folder called 'AFirefox' under Users/_____/AppData/Roaming, in addition to the regular Mozilla folder. The Amozilla files are all from 2018 - no recent use. Are these legitimate? Safe to delete?

The regular Mozilla folder contains two Firefox profile folders: one with recent files, the other all from 2018. Safe to delete the defunct profile folder? (I am the only user of this computer.)

Thanks.

The new firefox should have some malware protection by default? I thought I can use it without blocking addons, maybe a mistake?

On searching the web by google I came on a webpage, where another page suddenly opened and I could not leave with back button. Just another fake page opened.

I scanned the pages here (others are in the comment): https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/518ffb491d9ae673e803a930d05aae5bd0db9536a93197bfb2a874de76009af2

Could there be some infection? What can I do now to be save?

I deleted cache inside firefox and after that a scan with clamscan. It could not find anything on my device.

Thank you

I don't know how is possible but this program is impossible to delete, so when I wont to search for something, the browser first uses Google as the default then it redirects me to yahoo with this safe finder. Ad if I want to search the page of Google (google.it in my case) the browser blocks the connection and says: "Connection broken: potential security risk".

I don't know what to do. The strange thing is that the problem is just on the main browser, if I change with chrome the same is there!

I had several weird things happen this morning with my Mozilla Browser. Ultimately I had to re-download it and I then tried to setup a Mozilla Account to hopefully secure it. When I entered my email address z @comcast.net I received the verification code in my inbox but the new account display gave error code email returned misspelled.

I'm afraid my browser was hacked for my saved bookmark information and access. When I did get it back after rebooting Mozilla requested a new profile so I created "default user - zisses no additional user".

I then went back in and created the support account under the email x @gmail.com - I have attached below both of the verification codes I recieived from trying to create the support account. The zpggre account does not grant me access so can you be sure someone isn't accessing my information with it's use and please let me know what if anything is fraudulent and shut if down?

I recently observed that when I visit a certain page (not a website, but a certain page in the website), it seems to be attempting to load flashing the "X" repeatedly. After a few seconds it stops and within 10 seconds I am then redirected to a scam survey website asking me how satisfied I am with my internet provider. I immediately assumed the worst and ran McAfee scans, cleared cache, Malwarebytes free trial scans and no joy.

Then I logged into another computer and loaded up the same page. Please note instead of logging into Firefox and clicking on my bookmark, I simply went to the website, logged in and went to the page. It is the same link in the end. Nothing happened. I thought it was something wrong with my PC at this stage.

I then decided to log into Firefox to see if that would yield different results. I logged in on the other computer that had not presented the spam yet. I clicked the bookmark and it did it. The spam page loaded. From this I understand whatever is causing the problem is in my Firefox Account data.

I then immediately logged out of Firefox on the second computer, uninstalled it and then redownloaded it. Without logging in, the spam still comes up. I am lost. Neither McAfee, Malwarebytes or AdwCleaner find it.

The link for the spam is different every time, usually ending in ".xyz".

Before the spam was present, the page always had a normal padlock beside the URL. Now,sometimes not always, when the spam is going to come up it has an orange warning symbol and say some elements are not secure, and it says something about images.

The page it occurs on is on eBay, and I have used this site no problem for years. It only occurs on my regional message page specific to my country, not on the message page on "ebay.com".

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hackers have taken control of my Firefox and are maliciously using developer mode to alter settings and change behavior. They have hidden help/feedback icon so I can't send emergency info to firefox. They repeatedly change privacy settings for gmail on firefox to capture/alter my emails. They turn off my google sign in which has protected mode always on so they can load porn, inflammatory politics or foreign crap onto my youtube "recommended videos." They have posed as me and signed up for "developer" software in firefox that manipulates the entire account. They used a different email address and sign in to github on my own computer to do this, and I don't know the email address and can't do this. All of the info in my firefox account is now repeatedly tampered with. They also pose as developers throughout my computer and maliciously change everything. My computer is for an individual, myself who isn't part of any organization and shouldn't have organization "administrators. Can't firefox recognize that these are hackers and eliminate them?

Approximately 2 wks ago I allowed a support tek located in India to remotely access my computer to fix a problem I was having on my computer. After resolving the problem he asked me for my credit card # so he could charge me for fixing the problem, which I had clearly advised him at the very beginning of our conversation I wouldn't give him remote access to my computer if there was going to be a cost involved.

He became very agitated and abusive and threatened to call #411 and report me to whomever answered that number.

In addition, HE REFUSED TO DISCONNECT FROM MY COMPUTER AND HE REMAINED ON THE PHONE AND IN MY COMPUTER, DURING WHICH TIME I COULD SEE HIS CURSOR MOVING ALL AROUND MY SCREEN!

IT FINALLY OCCURED TO ME THAT I COULD PROBABLY GET RID OF HIS PRESENCE ON MY COMPUTER BY SHUTTING IT DOWN, WHICH I DID. WHEN I REBOOTED MY COMPUTER, MY HOME SCREEN WHICH HAD BEEN LOADED WITH APPROXIMATELY 30 ICONS OR SO NO LONGER INCLUDED THESE ICONS!

NOTHING LIKE THIS HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME DURING ALL THE YEARS I HAVE BEEN USING A COMPUTER & I AM BESIDE MYSELF WITH WORRY OVER THE POSSIBILITY THAT BEFORE I SHUT DOWN MY COMPUTER AND I COULD SEE HIM MOVING HIS CURSOR ALL AROUND ON THE SCREEN, HE WAS ABLE TO COLLECT ALL MY MOST IMPORTANT INFORMATION ----- BANK ACCT NUMBERS! 401K PLAN! ALL MY SAVED PASSWORDS TO ALL PERSONALL ACCTS! ---- YOU NAME IT, HE MUST HAVE BEEN COLLECTNG ALL OF THIS INFO TO USE AS HE WISHED IN THE FUTURE!

ARE THERE ANY STEPS I CAN TAKE TO PROTECT MYSELF FROM IDENTITY THEFT BY THIS TERRIBLE SUPPORT TEK, SHORT OF DESTROYING MY COMPUTER????!!!! YOUR IMMEDIATE REPLY WOULD BE SO GREATY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU. M.WINTERS.
