Running Firefox 49.0.2 on W7 Home Premium 64 bit. This week I accepted a Firefox update, not sure of the number. Since then I have had various browser issues, including multiple loadings of tabbed sites and intermittent lack of response to input- dialog boxes, etc. Also some sites, Amazon for one, seem to load only with difficulty. Anyone else have these issues?

I have been battling the malware that redirects webpages. From what I've read, it is caused by leading one to download a fake Firefox and installing it. The following is the vector I think led me to do this. It is a .pdf file. The first page is blank. You page to the second page and there is the button to download a manual (this is the one I was looking for). But that button takes you to a fake page telling you to upgrade Firefox. There is now a redirect that warns you not to do this ... but allows you to travel at your own risk. If anyone is going after the culprits, this link will lead you to one of them.

The link: https://malggegerni.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/topcon-gts-300-interface-manual.pdf

In case anyone is interested. I went to the Mozilla site and downloaded and installed Firefox 50.1.0 hoping to fix the problem. So far I don't think it has.

I was on Snagajob.com just now, searching for jobs. All of a sudden my screen just changed to what I assumed was the Mozilla update site, where it was a reddish orange colored screen, saying urgent update, please update now. So I clicked the update link, and a 2nd screen popped up. (Screenshot below) Then I looked at the address bar and this was the web address:

Can anyone please help? I don't know if I should continue to stay online, exit then reopen my browser, or what!! What will this do to my laptop? If this was fake how can I remove it? I have antivirus/malware installed and nothing popped up!

Just wanted to relay the supposed address for this popup is https://oowiebest-directory-submission.org

Tried to trace and failed. Appears it may be a vulnerability with Windows 10 and Firefox..similar to what a fair amount of users experience with Edge but much more limited.

Experienced this 3 times in 2 weeks and I am fairly consistent in the sites I navigate. <10 on a daily basis,with 20+ hours/week activity, and the page will generally reroute to this Critical Update page while clicking on of these bookmarked sites.

Every time I visit Ebay site, when using Firefox (at Ebay), I continue to randomly be prompted to download a file titled "firefox-patch.js" despite NEVER asking or clicking on anything to prompt this, simply loading Ebay at an random given time, and also a fake Firefox page (which looks very authentic) is automatically opening a new tab in my browser, circumventing my popup blocker and security software. I have confirmed with Mozilla/Firefox and reported the issue to Norton Small Business, as this continues to be a problem In reaching out to Mozilla support, I am informed that this and others are surely fake, and pose a threat to security - such as Trojans, worms and other malware which seems only to happen when at Ebay. I have confirmed, these threats (which have been confirmed as fake and security risks) with Mozilla and have had Symantec perform several scans and investigate that this has not actually successfully infiltrated my systems, however every time I visit ebay, these or similar attacks are occurring; and per Mozilla support they are receiving several reports every day regarding these attempted attacks.

The last two potential threats that nearly have circumvented my security (fortunately, I have been cautious after noticing that they were suspicious due to the URLS) are from the following:

Threat Source URL or Spoofed URL: https://kahdacitylinkexpress.org Incident URL: https://kahdacitylinkexpress.org/2571196760355/7b393ecf118dc15d4f6e925feea6ab53/13f5cda28c1df11a7536ab141ede954.htm

EBAY MUST ADDRESS THIS MATTER AS IT IS CAUSING ALARM AND OUR COMPANY NOW QUESTIONS WHETHER OR NOT EBAY IS A SAFE MARKETPLACE AS THUS FAR, THIS IS ONLY OCCURRING WHILE AT EBAY!

Please, we respectfully request that your security department attempt to stop these attacks, as it has been happening fairly regularly, despite the attacks appearing to being somewhat random. The only certainty we have experienced is: IT SEEMS IT IS ONLY OCCURRING WHILE ON EBAY! We have reported this issue to Mozilla, Norton/Symantec (NSB) and Ebay.

We kindly ask that this matter be investigated, and please note, we have reported this to Mozilla and to Symantec to help warn customers of a potentially serious risk.

I see questions raised about this variously changing URL popup, but I see no solutions. I have used Norton, NPE, Malware Bytes, JRT, SpyBot and Kaspersky TDSS killer, and none of them can find where it has hidden in my system. So, I'd like a solution; otherwise, since I can't have this malware popping up when I'm performing a banking operation or paying a bill online, I'd prefer to uninstall Firefox altogether and go back of IE or try Chrome. No need to show an image; if you have had it, you know what it is.

I opened firefox a couple of days ago and was lead to a survey on firefox itself and thought why not do it? It asked a bunch of questions of whether I used it or other browsers like chrome, safari, etc, how often and what I use it for, and etc. At the end of the survey that took about 20-35 minutes, it asked for my email so that they can send me a $5 Amazon Gift Card. I completed this on the 24th. The website in question where I filled the firefox survey at was, "forthrightsurveys.com" Returning to the website (specifically the last page right when I submitted my email, "forthrightsurveys.com/[whole bunch of strings]) gives the prompt "This questionnaire has already been completed using your ID. It may only be completed once be each respondent." Going to forthrightsurveys.com url in general links me specifically to "intellisurvey.com", so I can't check to see if I might have put my email wrong.

I have been checking my inbox and my junk mail just in case but I have still not received an email. Is there anyway to get my giftcard or to be able to redo the survey in order to be able to get my giftcard? I have tried to check the firefox website for support in general as to who to email in regards to this, but all it leads to is back to this forum to ask my question.

I would click a link while in eBay and this urgent firefox pop up would come up. After weeks of this, I got worried that maybe it is legit because eBay is buggy as all get out! So I saved the file to my desktop. I did NOT open it. Then I thought, um may be see if this is a scam. Wish my brain had thought of that FIRST. Anyway, I immediately deleted that icon on my desktop and then deleted my trashcan. I do have Webroot Spysweeper on my computer but they never popped anything warning me about this. They MIGHT have done so had I tried to open that saved icon. Do I need to be worried that I foolishly saved it to my desktop to begin with?

I will occasionally be redirected to malicious sites that great dialogs in an endless loop, trapping me on the page and not allowing me to close that tab or window without using task manager to kill firefox as a whole, which can lose me any work I was doing at the time. I have seen firefox give the prompt to stop the site from producing additional dialogs in previous versions, and from my searches all the other complaints are that this function is too invasive for others. However for me it doesn't seem to function at all. Hopefully this is any easy fix. I can not add a url as I can not interact with the address bar while dialogs are being created.
