Hi folks- new to posting here, but have enjoyed visiting for quite some time.
Not sure if this is the right place (and if not, please move it to a better home), but in any case- within the last week I've noticed, within the small textbox that appears in the lower left-hand corner to tell you what FF's connecting to, loading, etc. the message
"Connecting to superfish.com...". Not every time FF goes from one link to another, but often enough, and between familiar links that never showed the message before, that my brow furrowed a bit- anything "-fish" doesn't reassure me regarding online privacy.
So, off to Google, which tells me that Superfish was something preloaded onto HP Lenovo laptops two years ago, ticked off a lot of people, lawsuits abounded- and that's pretty much it.
The superfish.com site times out, and I can't find hide nor hair of anyone else discussing superfish in 2017 in any capacity outside of the Lenovo-related issues.
MBAM isn't finding anything wrong, and I'm not detecting any of the usual symptoms of browser hijacking.
I'm not terrified, but I really don't like new browser behavior that flies under the radar.
I haven't installed any add-ons recently, and since I always keep half an eye on that little textbox to see what's going on while the spinner does its thing, it's not a case of its always having been there and simply escaping notice until recently.
If anyone has a similar story or a cogent thought to share, by all means, please do!
(FYI system is Win 7 Home Premium x64)
