Mozilla Firefox / pornography

1 Po box 91Gardiner, OR, United States Review updated:

Recently there have been pornographic pop-ups on my computer. They have all been on Mozilla Firefox. Normally I ignore these and exit out of them. But the last one was so horrifying that I need to write to you. Something needs to be done. This pop-up was not only porn, but the women seemed to be held down, without a choice. Whether or not this is real, I am still sick just thinking about it. If there are any sites to block pop-ups, please let me know, or I am switching my browser. Thank you.

    I tried Firefox briefly and switched back to IE7. It's difficult to use, has far more pop-ups and you can't use your default email program. I'd click on a "contact" email link and absolutely nothing would happen. Customer support is virtually nonexistant. Live chat four hours a day, five days a week and no way to contact them via email.

    Firefox is a free browser. It isn't the problem. You ###s are. If you didn't surf for porn you wouldn't have infected your computer with virus, malwares, etc. Clean out your damn registry.

    I'm an avid firefox user since the first release. I have had not one pop up. Pull your heads out of your ### and stop ### about something you didn't pay for. Don't like it? Uninstall. Simple.

    I had the same problem with porn sites. I've had pop ups, which I've never clicked on. I'm a Christian and I'm frigid. I don't need that junk. I also had some porn sites on my bookmarks page. I blamed a friend who used my computer and he said that it wasn't him. I didn't believe him until I read these posts. I think it came from Firefox. I've also had problems with it not responding and freezing. It seems to freeze and lose internet connection the most with Wild Tangent and World winner games. I've started downloading the Wild Tangent and playing WorldWinner on other browsers because I can't win on Firefox, even on the games that I'm in the top skill level and I'm challenging a friend from the bottom skill level. I play like it's my first time on this crazy browser. I even have problems with Yahoo and Facebook when I go on Fire fox. Those sites don't give me trouble on any other browser. Firefox used to work OK. I don't know what happened to it.

    It isn't FF that's causing porn and what not to pop up. Your infected with ad-ware. Most likely the generic type. Either that or a browser hijacker. Get yourself a anti-spy-ware program. And look into getting a better ad-block add on. ad-block plus script blocker ect. And it's working just fine for me. Reference=current Firefox user. See that was so simple w/o the swearing/name calling. FF-Tools-Add_Ons-extensions Search Ad block. Very simple install then restart FF.
