Hi, This little popup comes up all the time quite annoyingly when I place the cursor over words. At times it covers up words that I cannot read. I was wondering if I could eliminate it somehow. The little pop up has a question mark, a camera, and a magnifier that opens up to a little lock open and closed with the words regular and incognito. I don't know what is for by the way, nor what is called. I tried to upload a screenshot of the thing but it seems I am not allowed to do it.

Every now an then, since about a year ago, when I try to open a link from Google search results in FF, a web-page appears instead in the form of a virus (but it's not) with a popup window saying "Dear Firefox user, You are our lucky visitor ..." After that, I have to restart FF, otherwise this "thing" goes on. This last time I copied the URL (unfortunately, I didn't take a screenshot!), which was http://vacationdestination.org/maintenance/-/price/-/Deal848. However, it seems it's a fake one, since I could not open it again. (not even just 'http://vacationdestination.org'). I have done a virus check and nothing was detected. Also, opening FF in safe mode doesn't help, since as I said this "thing" is quite occasional and *not repeatable*. I would like please to know if someone has had *the same exact problem* and has solved it. Please don't reply by giving general suggestions like "open in safe mode", "do a virus scan" etc.

Yes it's an old computer with limited RAM, but it serves me well on every other site.

Any suggestions? Why are Permissions not working? Thanks.

I tried reloading Firefox and searching the registry for the Yahoo URL to no avail.

What keeps changing my home page to Yahoo? I searched my PC for SPIGOT to no avail either. Anyone else have this problem? More to the point, anyone know what causes the home page to be reset to Yahoo after it is reset in Options to the original home page? There are similar questions on htis website, but no answers to my specific problem.

My Norton security software is unloaded also. One time a message "enhanced by Google" appeared. I then downloaded a new copy of Firefox, the message disappeared but the other settings are still not what I had before. How do I get back to the default appearance?

Firefox v40.0.3, Win7 64-bit SP1 and up-to-date.

Somehow, probably due to a recent software install, Yahoo has hijacked my new tab behavior and I can no longer get to the New Tab tiles that I could do before when I create a new tab or new window (ctrl-t or ctrl-n). I have:

1. Changed the about:config browser.newtab.url entry to about:newtab; it was www.yahoo.com. 2. Removed Yahoo from the list of search engines and ensured that Google was at the top. 3. Followed the process at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-new-tab-page but I cannot find the cog icon on the New Tab page since I can't get a tab with the tiles (i.e. I can find the New Tab controls referred to on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/hide-or-display-sites-new-tab-page).

I would really like my tiles back.

Among other things (popup login windows, etc), Firefox won't show CAPTCHA images even after a fresh install with all default settings. I tried cleaning my computer with the recommended spyware / adware removal programs (AdwCleaner and Kapersky) and one of them did the trick for about an hour, but then Firefox went back to not showing the CAPTCHAs again. Is there a permanent fix for this?

Instead I got a charge on my credit card from lstfl.com for $33.+ dollars saying it enrolled me in a sex site. That is NOT what I imagined. And it came under Mozilla/Firefox name.
