  1. Most shown are internal local subnet addresses: https://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv6-unicast-address-assignments/ipv6-unicast-address-assignments.xhtml . Note that Eset does internal proxy activities for DNS and other traffic which they won't elaborate on. I don't know what you mean here. If you are blocking all outbound DNS port 53 traffic, FireFox shouldn't be able to connect to anything. Blocking this hidden Eset DNS processing will weaken Eset's security protection. Ditto for other possible network traffic that Eset internally monitors via UDP proxy means. You need to duplicate Eset's existing firewall rule for ekrn.exe and place that rule prior to your DNS block rule. My advice is leave Eset's existing default firewall rules in place unless you fully understand all the effects of overriding them.
  2. Thank yor for all of your responses. I'll try this, but first I'll go through the other 2 answers. I've blocked DNS (port 53, TCP and UDP) on direction "out" again. nslookup does not work as expected, but after starting a Wireshark capture there are still queries and responses going on port 53 as you can see here. DNS queries triggered by Firefox (e.g. by loading a page) get through too. I'll try what happens when I move rules above the hidden ones. As I said in the original post, I'm blocking DNS for testing purposes, as it is used so much that if it gets blocked properly then it will be easy to see
  3. Issue has spread to Opera, now only usable browser is firefox
  4. I'm running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit on a new HP Spectre x360 and ESET Smart Security Premium. I was hit yesterday with a virus that can't be detected by ESET Smart Security and Windows Defender. The virus was active when my new HP Laptop was and wasn't connected to the internet. The virus made the mouse cursor act erratic and was moving all by itself. It was changing the magnification of my Firefox browser, minimizing it and causing the browser to shimmy back and forth. The virus was moving icons on the desktop, changed the desktop theme, and opening items in the start menu. I attempted to purge it from the system with out success. I disabled the synaptics touch pad, changed the mouse cursor settings, completed disk cleanups with Windows Disk Cleanup and CCleaner, etc..., without success. I've run Windows Defender in Offline Scan mode and ESET Online scan and nothing was detected. After several actions to remove the virus, I though I was successful, only to be disappointed a while later when my system started acting erratic again. I ran Windows Defender Offline Scan last night and shut the system down. So far today, it hasn't started again, but since nothing was detected, I suspect it will return. I called ESET Support USA and they helped change the ESET settings to perform a more complete scan, but again, nothing was detected. Do you have any suggestions? Regards
  5. To OP. Just saw this. https://www.engadget.com/2020/01/10/mozilla-firefox-critical-vulnerability-update/?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly9ndWNlLmVuZ2FkZ2V0LmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAALJYngiK4IxhPo-IkNc72itPKY2b-ZIMHElQMFX6EW2Rzcm4NEfaYWHbkv-LlxAIJTxH1-KjNgfkBw8jEzUyXdG9RibLRDeB4RiktitmC918qteD4Kj5FqnEyRxvH3_IKRbScwiI2F50qc6hcs96M_0lPwRYBJbeMF1o4lCVsGvt
  6. Hi. Thank You very much. It is posible to delete this certificat via esmc ? Certificate still is default value on mozilla firefox.
  7. We won't use tags and it just clutters up the view. It's not just at the top, it is in the side panel where the groups are. It keeps coming back when I change views. I have to re-hide it every time. The other issue with the new look is that it doesn't remember that I want to left side panel to be collapsed. Every time I log back in, it is expanded again. This version has added more clicks to an already click-heavy application. Is it possible that it is a browser issue? I am using Firefox 71.
  8. I had problems with FireFox's hardware acceleration feature prior to ver. 70 being introduced in regards to my existing nVidia graphics driver. Unfortunately, a driver update was not possible since my graphics card is no longer supported. Tried all known fixes to the problem with no success. Once FF ver. 70 came out, I haven't had an issue since. Another example of a hardware to software issue.
  9. This is just an update. I haven't removed and reinstalled the Firefox browser yet, because it hasn't been acting up yet today. If this was a hardware issue, I would expect it to be more consistent. Therefore, I think this is a malware, defective update, or corrupted application.
  10. I think the problem is, although I could be wrong with this, there used to be antivirus and anti malware software with antivirus programs back in the day mainly focused on viruses. Malwarebytes did at some point appear to find stuff others didn't although that could just be people thinking it did. These days antiviruses do generally protect against all types of malware. I've also heard from a lot of past users who found malwarebytes has became not as good in the last few years. I did until last year use both eset and malwarebytes as I had a lifetime license (never had any issues but I know it's not recommended - stopped using it when I was trying to troubleshoot something). As mentioned as well by Marcos each AV has their own criteria for things such as PUAs As for the original poster had removing Firefox fixed the issue? I'm reluctant to say that it doesn't sound like a virus if you are trying multiple programs and nothing is being detected. Either that or it is a brand new virus that is very hard to detect but I do think there is something else that is causing the issue - so far the issue seems to be just causing random annoyance rather than doing anything that would appear to be malicious
  11. Another possible culprit is FireFox's hardware acceleration feature. Problems with it usually manifest as graphics driver issues that cause web pages to become corrupted and the like: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1208168 . You could disable hardware acceleration temporarily and see if the erratic PC behavior you are experiencing disappears.
  12. Firefox Browser 71.0 (64-bit). I'm not ruling out a bad program or browser. Although, when the virus was active, I switched to the Microsoft Edge browser, and still had the virus activity.
  13. Mouse hardware can be defective; even on a new device from the factory. To rule out that possibility, connect another mouse from another PC you have or borrow one temporarily from a relative/friend. Shutdown your PC. Disconnect your existing HP mouse and connect the other mouse. Upon startup of the HP, it will auto recognize the new mouse. Perform normal activities with that mouse including Firefox browsing for a while. If no mouse issues arise, your mouse issue is due to bad hardware. I suspect your mouse issues are hardware related. I state this because you have stated there are intervals when using the HP where you posted you were not having any mouse related issues. This type of sporadic behavior is symptomatic of failing hardware. Finally, mouse hardware issues are very difficult to identify since they do manifest with periodic erratic behavior followed by periods with no issues arising. A failing/defective mouse can actually totally lock up a PC. -EDIT- Appears this PC is a notebook. Assuming are using the built-in mouse pad/buttons, you will have to connect either a USB or wireless mouse to the notebook to test with. Also do a Google search on this "HP Spectre x360 mouse issues." Multiple HP based postings on it in regards to erratic mouse behavior with various HP recommend fixes. One of the more promising "fixes" is to disable the HP pen driver via Win device manager: https://smithtalkstech.com/2018/03/31/hp-spectre-x360-mouse-cursor-freakout-bug-solved/
  14. The only add-on I've got installed on Firefox is AdblockPlus. But, the mouse was acting erratic with the browsers closed when this all started.
  15. Use IE11 or Edge for a while and see if this same erratic browser behavior appears in those. If it doesn't, I would say you have an adware/malicious extension installed in FireFox.
  16. Well, the virus returned and started changing the zoom on my Firefox browser rapidly back and forth from 120% to 140%. The mouse cursor was acting erratic as well. I started an in-depth scan and contacted ESET USA telephone support. The scan ended with out any viruses detected. ESET chat support took control of the desktop and ran some tests, but indicated that there was no malicious software detected as well. I expect the virus to return.
  17. Online SSLTest on SSLLabs shows that 'adorama.com' supports TLS 1.2. Enabling TLS warnings in Chrome's internal settings (per your ghacks.net link) produces no warnings for 'adorama.com'. P.S. Now Firefox also can't access 'adorama.com' when NOD32 protection is enabled.
  18. Si vous rencontrez des problèmes de publication sur ce forum et que vous utilisez ie11 et que vous souhaitez continuer à utiliser ie11 [par opposition à Firefox ou Chrome] et merci beaucoup à TomFace pour cette solution de contournement, basculez le commutateur dans le coin supérieur gauche de l' écran. La barre d'outils de réponse du forum [qui désactive toutes les autres fonctionnalités de la barre d'outils de réponse], permet à l'affiche d'utiliser ie11 pour au moins une citation et une multicote lors de la publication.
  19. That is a good idea. I tried what you suggested with both IE11 and Firefox on the various banking websites, and get no webcam access requests. So its looking like Chrome is the likely culprit. Hopefully this is just some simple conflict between Chrome and whatever recent updates my computer got from ESET. Unfortunately, I'm still paranoid ? The reason I brought up my NAS/Switch is to provide more information, and in case it could be a point of entry into my network. I did change some of the default security settings, like removing the default admin account, changing the default ports, and lowering login attempts so the NAS is likely not an issue.
  20. PLEASE, add Opera to the list of compatible Browsers for the Banking & Payment Protection module. It uses the Chrome (ENGINE) Browser and It's far better than Chrome, Firefox or IE. Thanks.
  21. My comment in regards to Adguard is do you really want it intercepting and decrypting SSL traffic? Eset's SSL protocol scanning is already doing that and examining such traffic for malware. Adguard in the past has not properly performed SSL scanning as noted here: Different certificate, same key The first thing I did was to install Adguard two times in different VMs and look at the root certificate that got installed into the browser. The fingerprint of the certificates was different. However a closer look revealed something interesting: The RSA modulus was the same. It turned out that Adguard created a new root certificate with a changing serial number for every installation, but it didn't generate a new key. Therefore it is vulnerable to the same attacks as Superfish. I reported this issue to Adguard. Adguard has fixed this issue, however they still intercept HTTPS traffic. I learned that Adguard did not always use the same key, instead it chose one out of ten different keys based on the CPU. All ten keys could easily be extracted from a file called ProtocolFilters.dll that was shipped with Adguard. Older versions of Adguard only used one key shared amongst all installations. There also was a very outdated copy of the nss library. It suffers from various vulnerabilities, however it seems they are not exploitable. The library is not used for TLS connections, its only job is to install certificates into the Firefox root store.

  22. You sure are being stubborn and selfish to your Googleness. FYI its not going to be the same addon in firefox as it is in google, they will have to make two different types to cater 1 to chrome, and 1 for firefox. It isnt going to be cross-platform. However if you dont want to, dont just constantly post links out of here and create additional posts to 1 single addon, thats not what i asked. I can do all that on my own, however it will take me weeks as i have a life and job. You are the one with the suggestion. Here is a format to follow now: Avast - Online Security (link) Avira - Browser Safety AVG - Secure Search From this list we can really contrast and compare and just search for the addons you are speaking about. If you want to be generalized as you are, then that is also fine, however I will have no interested in trying to get on your side, level, see your point of few etc, im just going to disagree because you dont want to put time and effort into convincing and professionaly giving your point of view. Your just saying, make a browser addon like the rest LOL!! I dont mind taking the time looking at all these addons and testing them out and then agreeing with you, or totally disagreeing, but im not going to hunt for them and guess that i have the right one(s)? Dont all these addons each do something different ? Or are they seriously all the same and do the same thing ? This would be entering my point of view. Why not just use one of those coupled with ESET? Why does ESET need to make one if they are all the same or etc etc etc. I hope you get my side now though, respectfully. Yes i know its just a suggestion, but i like to come to conslusions on some of the suggestions that are posted here, sometimes. Best regards,
  23. Oh God not other anti Google thing. Whatever. FYI..................These addons are also available in Firefox. Most addons that are in Firefox and available in Chrome and visa verso. I use everything Google.
