Flying Saucer on my homepage

Recommended Posts

When I open Firefox my homepage is Bing. Recently I have been getting a flying saucer going across my screen with missiles firing at it. Now, I don't now where this alien craft hails from but so far any attempt to communicate with it has been met with dead silence. At this time I consider it hostile and would like to send it back to where it came from (preferably to where the sun don't shine). Has anyone else had their homepage held hostage by a saucer of unknown origin. How can I put a stop to this infuriating assault on my peace. Any and all help from my fellow species would be appreciated. Thanks, Shortchange

xhi, I have run Malwarebytes, Avira, and deleted all my cookies and cache history. BTW dear extender of wisdom, with a name like xhi are you one of the aliens? I appreciate your help. Shortchange

 

PS: This saucer doesn't show up each time I open my browser. But, this does happen occasionally and I can't stop it until I close my Firefox and reopen it. Sometimes it will invade my continuum when I have a lot of tabs open and I don't want to loose my stuff. Thanks

I went to Google and typed in "flying saucer in firefox" and got numerous hits for what you're likely seeing. There's a Firefox add-on called "Flying Saucer Foxes". Since it's an add-on, I'm sure all you need to do is to disable it or uninstall it. Click "Tools" and "Add-ons" and find it in there.

Unfortunately Wxman the Firefox Saucer is not the one that plagues me. I did go to the add-ons in Firefox and deleted an item called Websteroids which I read as Webster-oids; but a Google of Websteroids led me sites that sell web steroids. Silly me! I'll keep after this demon until its exorcised. Thanks Wxman, Shortchange

I just did a search on "websteroids add-on in firfox" and got a good hit on how to remove this unwanted program that may be the culprit. But you have to be VERY careful on those "hits" to websteroids as many of them are flagged by Web of Trust as harmful. If you don't have web of trust, I highly suggest you install this browser add-on:

Now, on to the removal of websteroids. This link from pcrisk is safe.
