  1. I'm a small business owner, and as such I wear many hats, one of which being the "IT Guy".   I made my own web-page for the business, and maintain it myself.

    Last week, much to my surprise and chagrin i discovered my web site had become the victim of cryptojacking!!  I found out only because of MB3, which blocked coinhive code, in my header and then blocked my header from view. 

    Without MB3, I'd still be clueless that my site had been compromised, there was no other indications of any issue, so thanks MB3!!

  2. Hey Donna, I'm guessing this is an issue with the new Firefox update and all the major changes MB has recently made to their "web protection", sadly you and I may be the canaries in the mine - so we got it first!  :-)

    I also made a post to support your post, I'm guessing they will jump on this later tonight or early tomorrow morning. 

    Love me some Firefox, and also love me some Malwarebytes - I'm sure they will get this figured out very soon - otherwise I predict lots of freaked out and upset users!! 

     

  3. My Firefox just updated and now MB keeps shutting it down, over and over.  I posted elsewhere but wanted to be certain you folks saw it is a problem, and I'm guessing others will have the same problem when their Firefox updates tonight and tomorrow. 

    Here's my log info.  I can send the other more comprehensive logs you folks like (although they are not something I'd want to post in a public forum), but this may have been unnecessary because this is a known issue?

    Thx!

  4. EXACT same thing on Firefox 58.0.1 Donna, and it's freaking me out a little bit. 

    I've never had or seen anything like this before.  At first I thought I'd gotten a fake firefox update, but I didn't.  I've been scanning the heck out of my PC and it seems to be virus free, but Firefox is getting shutdown by MB constantly, even on basic sites like google.com.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  5. Thx Ried. I kept opening and closing the program, stopping and restarting it and rebooted a couple of times and it fixed it. 

    I love me some MalwareBytes, but this 3.x is still a little buggy.  I'm confident you folks will get it fixed soon, I'll just be patient and sit tight.

    I'm not going to try and uninstall it again, I'll just wait for the patch to 3.x.

    Take care and thanks!!

  6. After much fiddling I was able to roll back to a System Restore point with MBAW 2.x.  It would not work so I cleaned and uninstalled as much as could and reloaded MBAW 2.x. 

    For now I put everything back the way it was, including re-installing MBAW 3.x.  I'll assume you folks will get it fixed soon.

    The only problem I;m having now is that "Turn On" message everytime I boot.  For now I just press that button and it seems to be OK.

  7. Well Version 3.x is buggy as Hell.  I thought I could simply reinstall Version 2.x over Version 3.x and it would downgrade.

    DO NOT TRY THIS!!!  It made my machine unbootable, I'm writing this from another PC as I wrestle with how to boot back into my regular PC's desktop.

    I'm disappointed.  I own a bunch of MBAW licenses for my PCs, family's PCs and most importantly WIFE's PC.  (Thank Goodness I screwed up my PC and not hers!!) ;-)

    Stupidly I already updated every PC to Version 3.x without checking here first. 

    How do I safely roll back to v2.x??  I'm not seeing it on the downloads page here any longer.
