Advertising windows began appearing on my favorite pages, such as Kijiji, and some of the links wanted to take me to unsafe pages. I found Photo-zoom V10 1.14 by Joseph CM in my extensions for Firefox, and chrome, sarfari , think it was downloaded with torrent. I could uninstall it with safari and chrome, however firefox only had a disable button. I did all the usual, even deleting all the preferences firefox used, but it came on coming back. One message I received when setting up firefox was: An application wants to install Photo-zoom-allow? I didn’t but the extension was there anyhow when I finished the install. I finally found the culprit in the mozilla folder in application support folder. I deleted the mozilla, and the firefox folders and it was gone. Has anyone else come across this extension?
