Firefox opens a web page to download the update to Firefox

Firefox opens the yahoo.com homepage, but another tab open with FF color and the logo indicating to download this update to Firefox. https://oophig-tools.com/3571824514203/0a3f0fb3b55733687efd3c163838392c/b65d0c99f71438740adbe2e913464f86.html I checked the start page that is only Yahoo.com and I checked the addons and plugins that only has the correct plugins listed. I use Avast with Avast FF addon and Avast says the website is legitimate (LOL). The downloaded file is a JS file, and I did not download it. What's funny, it's the web address, I listed does not load if I manually enter the web address. I can't find anything on this web page.

uBlock origin seems to be effective to stop such false update messages. at least he did when I tested it in July not long after this feat firstly saw the day and I was able to catch him.

  • LabVIEW makes my web page hang when it updates the data of access database

    Hello

    I'm working on labview (signal acquisition and insertion into a database) and visual studio (Web page design) and I faced this problem when the Web page tries to update the database of microsoft Data Access.

    Whenever I VI, DQA will acquire analog input from a circuit and pass the value in a database for the Web page retrieve and update and display the latest data on the Web page. But for some reason, whenever I run the VI, the data refresh is is arrested to the Web page and updates only when I stopped the vi and whenever I try to refresh the page, it will display a runtime error. I wonder if it is possible to do the update of page Web in real time instead of simply update that when the vi is stopped and what are the causes the Web page to stop the update (labview Web side/page side).

    I use IIS to host the Web page and labview 8.6/toolkit database connectivity for data acquisition and store it in the access database.

    In my view, that it is a limitation of the Jet database. If I remember, Jet uses the locking of the 'page '. Exactly the same thing happened to me on a large scale with several testers. The solution was to use a sophiticated more like MySQL or SQL Server Express database.

  • After the last update a few minutes ago, Firefox open all web pages.

    I was on a local web page run by a local server on my intranet. Firefox was not open. I opened it (last time it worked successfully was a few hours ago). He did an update. After the update, he tried to open a web page in Firefox - failed. Local web page, I was sure would not open either. Web pages to function in Internet Explorer.

    Problem was Firefox hanging in the Task Manager - task once I stop the task, I re-run Firefox and had no issue. A big thank you to all who tried to help.

  • When I open a web page any using firefox, its ok for a few minutes, then he opens another page saying it is redirected for no reason at all

    When I open a web page any using firefox, its ok for a few minutes, then he opens another page saying it is redirected for no reason at all, the homepage remains open, but the other page start for no reason at all in another tab

    It's very consistent, he arrives a few minutes? In this case, I suggest this test:

    To find out if one of your extensions is the culprit, could you test mode without failure of Firefox? It is a standard diagnostic tool to disable some advanced features of Firefox and extensions. More info: questions to troubleshoot Firefox in Safe Mode.

    You can restart Firefox in Mode safe mode using either:

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > restart with disabled modules
    • Help menu > restart with disabled modules

    Not all add-ons are disabled: Flash and other plugins still works

    After stops in Firefox, a small dialog box should appear. Click on 'Start mode safe' (not reset).

    Any difference?

  • After you download the update of Firefox 25.0.1 Firefox does not open. Help! Thank you!

    I downloaded the update for 25.0.1 and he ran. Instead of restarting, I stop the laptop (Vista Home SP2, 64-bit).
    When I started the laptop again, I tried to open Firefox, but Norton Internet Security leader Insight could not check the update as a reliable file and did not allow for Firefox open.
    I tried to disable file Insight but got the same results.
    I ran Live Update to update Norton Internet Security and then tried to open Firefox again.
    This time this Norton Internet Security displays a message saying that updater.exe wasn't careful and eliminated.
    When I try to open Firefox, Norton now detects Updater 25.0.0.5046, said he trusted, but Firefox does not open.
    I want to save the history if possible.
    How can I get Firefox to work with recorded history again?
    Thank you!

    Hi iamjayakumars - I was not able to create a new profile, because the Profile Manager does not open. A message from Norton seems "Updater.exe is sure.", but nothing else would happen.
    But - the links you sent were very helpful, and I was able to solve the problem by making a UN-installing and then re - install Firefox:
    1. backup of the profile.
    2. download the installer of Firefox from Mozilla.org with another browser.
    3. un-install Firefox from the control panel (ensuring "Delete my personal Firefox and customizations data" was NOT selected.)
    4 reinstall Firefox.
    Firefox starts successfully with all my old settings and all the tabs I had open the last time it was used appeared as I had hoped.
    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Hi Haubhaus,

    I know one thing to get your links to always open in a new window:
    1. Right-click on your desktop, select new, then shortcut
    2. Type "" C:\Program may Explorer\IEXPLORE. "." EXE" and click Next
    3. Name the shortcut (for example: Microsoft Home) and click Finish
    4. Right-click on the new shortcut and select Properties
    5. In the target box, arrow over until the end of the path, add a space and add -new (WEBSITEPATH). When your finished, your path should look like this:
      "" C:\Program may Explorer\IEXPLORE. "." "EXE" - new www.microsoft.com
    6. Click OK and try it!
    Let me know if it works or if I can be of further assistance!
