Hi,

Each time I start Firefox I get a warning pop-up from malwarebytes advising me of an outbound request from Firefox to a malicious site "bestwaytosearch.com". I have checked the home page settings and reset it, checked the search engines along with add-in and extensions. I have also cleared the history and browsing cache but just can not get rid of it.

Yes I can exclude it but that would only mask the problem.

Regards Ian

On 7/9/19 when trying to sign into a website, which I've used for years, after I enter my credentials and click 'sign in' FF downloads "webgate.dll" and does not proceed. I am able to successfully log in using Chrome or IE. I most recently accessed this website via FF last week - no changes to extensions since then.

I have updated Auslogics Registry Cleaner. Lavasoft Web Companion has been automatically downloaded and installed on my computer. It seems to have changed Firefox: every time I try to open a new tab, the Bing search engine opens automatically in the new tab. I have been able to stop this behavior by removing Bing from the choice of search engines. Now my home page opens automatically in the new tab when I click on the + to open a new tab.

I have not been able to remove Web Companion from my computer: their uninstall program crashes!!

How can I fix the problem in Firefox with the new tab?

Thanks.

This morning Firefox was connecting to youtube.dom quite nicely. Then I accepted and installed the Firefox Update to 63.0.1 (64 bit) and ever since I cannot connect to youtube.com. I get an error page that says: Secure Connection Failed

The connection to www.youtube.com was interrupted while the page was loading.

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I can connect quite nicely on Google Chrome (ugh!) but I want to continue with Firefox. Can this be fixed?

Have followed ALL suggestions from the web to remove this hijack with no luck. I then refreshed Firefox (v48.0) and even the default is still hijacked. Newtab always ends up with startgo123.com.

If I restart FF with all add-ons disabled, it's OK, but there are NO extensions or add-ons installed that I don't know about. All were installed by me some time ago.

Please help. I am going crazy trying to solve this.

No malware scans find this, no supposed programs to fix it can find it. Where can it be hiding?

Hello.

Since Firefox 55 there is an issue with syncing using Mozilla Sync.

It still persists and leads to a frozen Firefox "not responding" in Windows.

Also with 55.0.3 - no matter if x86 or x64, this problems exists. The browser gets stuck within the sync process and has to be shut down using task manager. If you are lucky the next try of syncing will work correctly and then FF works fine.

This has never been an issue with 54.0.1 - I cross checked by reinstalling and testing FF 54.

This is approved in my environment with 3 different machines and 4 different Windows installations.

It even happens with no add-ons at all and checking the date of "last sync" you can easily see, that syncing didn't complete and this stalls Firefox and renders it useless.

If the syncing works, FF 55 also works as normal. Unfortunately, in this event NO error reports are generated. On none of the machines. Which means I cannot create a crash log of the problem.

I am not syncing everything, only history, password and bookmarks. No open tabs, add-ons or settings.

Is there a fix for this problem? Thanks in advance.

Okay, this has happened before in the past but now it's happening consistently to the point that there were websites I can't access at all.

When I type a URL into Firefox and try to go to that website, Firefox keeps adding an entirely different URL to the front of it so that I can't access the site. For instance. I keep trying to go to http://nanowrimo.org. I type that into the bar but when I hit enter Firefox changes it to http://www.dell.comhttp//nanowrimo.org/.

Obviously that site doesn't exist. Then, if by some miracle I DO get to the site I'm trying to get to, if I hit refresh or try to go to another page on the site the dell url appears at the start and I get the Server Not Found error. I am not using bookmarks. I'm typing these things in by hand. My bookmarks work without any trouble. I tried disabling the fixup that adds www to the front of URLs but that didn't have any effect.

What's going on and how do I stop it?

I downloaded a malicious add-ons extension called "YouTube to MP3 Convert Button" by "Firefox user 6248547". All it did was open a video conversion website, which worked for the first video I tried (with alot of popups) but the second video I tried, it redirected me to a fake Firefox update page. As soon as I tried to cancel it, a login popup kept appearing and all my open tabs immediately went haywire trying to do some kind of redirect, and I it would not let me click on anything. I quickly ended the process to force close the browser, restarted Firefox and cleared my cache and uninstalled the extension. I am concerned about what kind of malware this may have installed on my machine. I reported this user over a month ago, but it is still available on the add-on page, and other people also commented about it having malware. Any suggestions?

I managed to remove ransomware last year (or two) ago by uninstalling Firefox and then downloading the latest Firefox, but this time the ransomeware refuses to go away so I can not shut down Firefox to remove it using the uninstall wizard. If I reboot / restart Windows the ransome page comes up straight away under Firefox browser window. What can I do to remove the contaminated Firefox ?

I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04.1 on my HP Pavilion G6 laptop. I installed ClamTK antivirus app, and ran it. There were no Possible Undesirable Applications (PUA's) were found. Notified that my older version of Firefox was no longer supported, I used the Software Updater to update my laptop. I ran ClamTK immediately again after the Firefox (and other) upgrades from the Ubuntu repository and found a Trojan Horse existed in Firefox. Details are given in the screenshot of the ClamTK results. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it and ran ClamTK again. No PUA's were found. What is up with Firefox's commitment to safe internet browsing if a trojan agent is found in a Firefox upgrade? Details of the trojan agent found by ClamTK are given below:

Firefox 63.0.3 on Windows 10

The popup claims to be a Mozilla extension, but there is no such thing in the list of Add Ons. It seems to be a redirect which opens the requested webpage and the popup at the same time. It goes away when I click the X. But every time I change pages, I have to shoo the popup way like a fly.

The only identification within the popup is " r.svrtrack.com ". It requests permission for a "monetization" feature. Avast antivirus and MalwareBytes found nothing wrong.

I tried to upload a screenshot, but the wheel just keeps spinning.

I have "ask" malware appearing everywhere. I have sought "ask" programs or files and I cannot find any , but "ask" appears on my searches. It is really annoying. I renewed my my operating system and have been careful not to inadvertently allow "ask" to fit itself in new apps. I am using Windows 10 with Mozilla Firefox as my browser. All are current.

I have tired to use a program called Searchreset 0.3, but I can't get a response from it. I search for "ASK" but I can't find anything to remove. I don't seem to have it's toolbar, but it is on any search. I have restored the operating system and have not knowingly exposed myself to "ASK". I don't want it to ever appear on my scree; can anyone help?
