Serious Forwarding Issue in Mail using Firefox

@gbulla

I checked out the account in Firefox and didn't see any issues with ads popping up. I wonder if it's specific to your device.

I wonder also. I can't see how it could be an external app/virus (one external to the browser), but it could be a malicious add-on. It only does it  in Yahoo email however, and only on FF.

 

I am going to try it on my work computer and see what happens. Clean FF install, no add-ons, etc.

ooops. Won't work at work, no ads. Think they're running an ad blocker as part of their security.

 

I have a laptop at home that I almost never use, will give that a try. Will get back.

If you email it to yourself, we can check it out there. I didn't do anything on the account, so many someone else reported this and our team fixed it?

Scooter - I just emailed it to myself with the title "For Scooter". You should see it.

 

Great if someone fixed this one. I am still guessing it was a malicious ad that somehow fwd'd the page (even w/o clicking it) in FF.
