Ok, I've got a problem in Firefox and the Firefox troubleshoot page directed me to this forum to find some answers because I seem to shoot blanks with uninstall / reinstalling Firefox and using Malwarebyte.


My problem is, when I surf on a webpage some of the images or thumbnails repeat themselves anywhere on the page. For example, when I go to my youtube page and click history, there are the thumbnails for the videos I watched. And in back to back thumbnails the video images are repeated (some, and only the images - not the names) and when I hover my cursor above them, they return back to their original state. But scrolling back and forth, it's like a damn tide which keeps messing with the thumbnails.


Second, the scroll bar on the right side sometimes morph into a bar full of random images which are captured from cache or something, and sometimes I can see a list of friggin smileys forming the scroll bar.


What I tried:


- Malwarebyte. It found a trojan, and some malware and I cleaned them. Run the scan again, they were gone.

- I uninstalled the firefox, even got rid of the profile. Reinstalled again, created a new profile but the problem was still there.


If you could please help me solve this annoying problem, it would be much appreciated.


PS. Internet Explorer, and Chrome are just fine. There is no problem.



EDIT: I just ran Combo Fix too. It deleted couple of files here and there, but damn firefox is still same!!!

Since you already ran ComboFix due to possible malware infection, its log should be thoroughly reviewed by trained experts in order to ascertain what was detected/removed and what malware you're dealing with. A log should have been created and saved to the root directory (%SystemDrive%), usually C:\ComboFix.txt. Reviewing that log would be helpful in resolving your issue but ComboFix logs are not permitted in this forum so we cannot continue here.

Please follow the instructions in the Preparation Guide For Requesting Help starting at Step 6.
  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running running running FRST which will create two logs.
When you have done that, post your logs to include your ComboFix log in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team Experts.
-- If no log was created by ComboFix or you cannot post its log, then ignore this part and just post the other requested log(s) as follows.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log(s) along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. If you cannot produce any of the required logs...start the new topic anyway. Explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happened when you tried to create them. A member of the Malware Removal Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.

After doing this, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can close this one.
