You could use Troubleshooting Information from the Help menu to find the internal name for the extension and simply remove it from the extensions directory in the profile. After that, it would be a good idea to make sure that there are no settings from it left over in about:config. If there are, you can reset them.
Hi, thanks for helping me. The Firefox troubleshooting page (about:support) shows the extension as "Avast Online Security" but doesn't provide a path to where it's installed. There's a button on this page to open the profile folder, which contains an "extensions" folder with a couple .xpi files, but the Avast extension is one one of them. Still stuck...
I have just installed the free version of AVAST anti-virus software on my MacBook Pro (2012), but my system has blocked the system extensions for File Shield, Mail Shield & Web Shield. This means that I am not protected "live" in these areas. In Security & Privacy settings, the "ALLOW" button is active, but when I click it nothing happens. I am running OSX 10.13.4. How can I fix this?
The malware has been quite difficult to detect since it has the ability to "hide itself". Avast malware researcher, Jan Vojtěšek, said "the virus detects if the user is googling one of its domains or, for instance, if the user is a web developer and, if so, won't perform any malicious activities on their browsers. It avoids infecting people more skilled in web development, since they could more easily find out what the extensions are doing in the background."
At this moment, the infected extensions are still available for download. Avast has contacted the Microsoft and Google Chrome teams to report them. Both Microsoft and Google confirmed they are currently looking into the issue. In the meantime, Avast recommends users disable or uninstall the extensions for now until the problem is resolved and then scan for and remove the malware.
Because Vivaldi is built using the Chromium web browser project, extensions available in the Chrome Web Store can also be installed in Vivaldi. In some instances, extensions built for the Chrome browser will behave differently when installed in Vivaldi, but for the most part your favourite Chrome extensions will work just fine in Vivaldi.
To hide or show an extension on the Address Bar, right-click on the extension and select Hide Button/Show Button. Use the Show/Hide hidden extensions toggle button on the right to view hidden extensions. To view hidden extensions in a drop-down menu instead of expanding the Address Bar (compare the images below), go to Settings > Address Bar > Extension Visibility and tick the box for Expand Hidden Extensions to Drop-Down Menu.
Chromium-based browsers like Google Chrome (read our Google Chrome review) come with a huge selection of extensions and plugins that let you do a variety of things, including improving your online security. To make things a bit easier for you, we reviewed 10 Chromium extensions that focus on security.
With that, we conclude our list of the best browser security extensions. There are certainly more than just 10 of them, especially since security is a very broad term, but these should give you a good starting point.
Currently, Avast has stopped offering Avast Passwords. You do not see this in your updated Avast antivirus or your respective app stores. It is also not available in Firefox extensions. Nonetheless, Avast continues to offer subscription renewals and customer support to users who already have it.
You can configure Privacy Preferences Policy Control payload settings on Mac computers enrolled in a mobile device management (MDM) solution to manage the settings in the Privacy pane of Security & Privacy preferences. If there is more than one payload of this type, the more restrictive settings are used. Applying this payload using MDM requires supervision.
Kaspersky Protection is added to your browser automatically after the installation of the Kaspersky lab application. When you open the browser for the first time after the installation of the Kaspersky application, the browser will show you the notification prompting to enable the Kaspersky Protection extension. If you skipped this notification, you can enable the extension in the browser settings. See the guide for your browser below.
macOS versions 10.13 and later require user approval before loading new, third-party kernel extensions. AVG AntiVirus and AVG Internet Security use kernel extensions for real-time security features. To ensure that your AVG product can fully protect your system, you need to manually allow AVG Software extensions.
After installing or updating AVG AntiVirus or AVG Internet Security, you may see the status message You are not fully protected. This is because the Core Shields are disabled due to the AVG Software extensions being blocked by your macOS. Follow the gif or steps below to allow AVG Software extensions:
There are two ways to get rid of the browser hijacker: manual and automatic. If you have free time and energy to cope with system settings, start with manual removal. Be sure to move the instructions in a specific order.

Chrome users can fight back by using the right extensions. You will find a variety of add-ons designed to ward off malicious code, protect your online privacy, and block intrusive ads. Let's look at some of the best ones and see how they can enhance your Google Chrome experience.
Google Chrome extensions are housed in the Chrome Web Store(Opens in a new window), where you can add them directly to your browser. Any extensions you add can be controlled from the upper-right corner of Chrome, allowing you easy access to their settings.
Many extensions that block web trackers depend on specific filters to keep out content. Others force you to manually decide whether to allow or block each site. Privacy Badger(Opens in a new window) tries to save you from all this work by learning which sites attempt to track you and then blocking that content.

The other four elements on the home screen are Core Shield, Virus Chest, Wi-Fi Inspector and Ransomware Shield. (The last one is locked until you upgrade to the paid version.) My one complaint with this layout is that Wi-Fi inspector is an active scan whereas the rest are settings screens or, in the case of Virus Chest, a location in which to view previously identified threats. Given the minimal options available, you'll figure this out quickly, but it isn't immediately intuitive.
Finally, we have custom scans that allow you to set up scans to your exact specifications. This can be a one-off or set to run as often as daily or as infrequently as monthly. Pick from a deep scan, targeted scan or Mac scan, and you have a variety of advanced settings to further tune the scan and the option to exclude certain files or folders if you wish.
The search Marquis malware works by infecting your system and tampers with your browser settings, configuring a redirect that constantly sends you to searchmarquis.com. If you accidentally click any other banner ad, pop-up, or website where Search Marquis is disguised, it could lead to further infections.
A101 Tampermonkey is a browser extension. A browser extension is a small software program that extends the functionality of a web browser. These extensions are designed to add specific features or functionality to the browser, such as ad blocking, password management or, in this case, userscript injection.
One common feature of browser extensions is the ability to add an icon next to the URL in the browser's address bar (). In some browsers you have to manually pin the icon to see it all the time. Clicking on the icon opens a popup menu, which provides information about the running scripts and a link to open the extension settings.
This will open the Chrome extensions page (chrome://settings/), which shows a list of all the extensions that are installed in your browser. Find Tampermonkey and click on the "Details" link to the right of its name.
A207 In order to solve the issue described above at Q206 Chrome now tries to automatically correct any corruption by removing corrupted parts.Depending on the severity of the corruption it might restore some data, otherwise the database is just empty.Since this can also affect Tampermonkey's data it tries to detect this process and notify you of the possible loss of all or some settings and scripts. 2b1af7f3a8
