Firefox is still buggy after adware removal

After removing some adware that I had yesterday, Firefox is still sort of bug.

I did deep analysis in my records with multiple anti-malware and anti-virus programs. and I uninstalled Firefox, delete old profiles too and make a new clean install.

However, when you install NoScript and/or Ghostery modules, they do not seem to work.
I think that this could be caused due to the trace of the malware that I received recently.

Here are the problems:

-NoScript 2.6.9.21: the add-on shows no options, instead shows blank spaces. It seems to be blocking any javascript, you will notice how YouTube does not show. (Img #1).
When disabling the add-on and restart Firefox, all websites with Javascript show again. So the add-on seems to be working, but is is not configurable.

-Ghostery 5.4.3: does not appear on the sidebar, Ghostery button, and I can't figure out how to make it appear.
In addition, in the page modules, if I click on settings ghostery, what I get is a blank page. (Img #2)

I tried to install the Add-ons page of the developer and the Firefox Add-ons page. I even tried with older versions of Add-ons, just to make sure it wasn't a version problem.

I think I might be missing something, you think that I can do to solve these problems?

Where you need them, got logs analysis of antivirus and antispyware programs and can post a HJT log.

Ran anti malicious and entirely software programs loads all files of Firefox (shown here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Uninstalling_Firefox) manually.

After a new installation, everything works again allright.

  • Firefox started running slow after the removal of my story. I tried to reinstall a new profile, and finally a new installed Windows. Now, I have the same problem

    I have tried everything I can think of, even to reinstall windows to correct the problem. Nothing solves the problem. It all started after clearing the cache of the browser. Text appears at least 15 seconds after I start typing, pages take a long time to load, if I click on something, it takes 15 seconds to show any response. If Firefox is on the screen, the mouse moves more slowly. Everything worked perfectly right, until I deleted the browser cache. Anyone have any ideas?

    You can check for problems with the database places.sqlite file in the Firefox profile folder.

  • Firefox does not open after the update. Cannot open the profile technical, even when you use the directory in cmd line path

    I'm using Firefox on a Windows 7 computer. Firefox does not open after the last update. I read the help articles and it seems that I need to create a new profile because my settings were probably corrupted. I'm unable to open the profile technical, even when you use the directory in cmd line path. I tried the following commands in the command line:

    Firefox Pei
    "C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla" PEI

    Nothing happens with every order.

    I am also running Norton Internet Security. I read a help of virtual navigation features Re article that can cause a problem. The article says to check the setting of virtualization in the internet security software and to clear the virtual cache. I went through all the menus of settings in Norton Internet Security version 21.6.0.32 and I don't see anything that looked like in "virtualization" settings, so I guess that does not apply to me. "

  • How Firefox reacts if different permissions are removed?

    An application called Manager of advanced permissions is available for Android which allows the user to reinstall other applications like Firefox) with various permissions removed. Since I have no need for webrtc I would like to be able to remove the permission of sound recording, for example. Firefox will still work ok? How about if I withdraw the authorisation of location? Firefox would reflect this condition permitted return to the site that asks for information about the location?

    If you delete a specific authorization then Firefox will not be able to use this feature.

    For the location, it would be to make an offer that leads you to your current location and WebRTC features that require this service.

    If you do not use these features that should not be a problem and you can still reactivate if necessary.

    don't trigger process not the recovery will finally reported that he should leave the library.   To do this, each time a process running an API in the library.   It is up to the application to handle this situation correctly.    All processes related to the 'deleted' files region must leave the library and reconnect to new region files.   Insofar as the process continues, he will continue what he does until he performed a new API.   BDB is not client server so there is no inter interprocess communication that is available.

    I manually deleted a few lines of sys.aud$.

    remove the sys.aud$ where trunc(ntimestamp#) < 16 August 13 ';

    commit;

    But I have still a few lines in dba_audit_trail.

    SQL > SELECT COUNT (*) FROM DBA_AUDIT_TRAIL WHERE TRUNC (timestamp)

    COUNT (*)

    ----------

  • Firefox plant start up after update of Norton 22.5.4.24 - does not start even in safe mode

    Windows XP

    Install Firefox 41.0.1 own - same problem
    Install Firefox 40.0.3 own - same problem

    Incident reports could help us by giving you an individual diagnosis, but if they are accidents of almost instantaneous startup, allow me to mention something that is 'flow' where you have this problem:

    Firefox crashes a few seconds of starting if you have either the Applian Technologies Freecorder and Replay Media Catcher programs in combination with Norton Security software (and possibly other security software).

    If you have either of these Applian programs and it is not essential, try to uninstall it then restart Windows to ensure that none of its components are running.

    Firefox will start normally after that?

    (If you do not uninstall the program, another user said he used msconfig to stop execution at startup and that fixed FlvSrvc.exe. See: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1086722#answer-789197)
