Proxy auth data request without proxy set

Post by Rhino Cracker » Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:17 am

Hi all,

since a few months when starting cyberfox it asks for login data of a proxy I've never set:

Proxy auth request shown on start
Cyberfox-Proxy.png (6.8 KiB) Viewed 76 times

As you can see, there is no proxy set:

Proxy Settings: no proxy set

Is this
- normal?
- some kind of malware?
- a dumb setting at another place I didn't look at?

Hi Rhino Cracker

Does your issue happen in safe-mode or on a clean test profile
Its likely caused by an installed addon, are you using any password managers ? keepass etc
Please try the above and let us know thank you.

Hi,

in safe-mode, with a clean test profile or with the old youtube-unblocker disabled this proxy message doesn't show.

I guess it has some malfunction - I can't even install it with the clean profile.
It also seems that all my addons have been blocked from updating.....
Also CF immediately showed a new available version with the clean profile.

In safe mode there also has been shows a disabled plugin (something with html5 video) which wasn't visible in usual mode...
I guess I will continue with a new profile.
Thanks for the help :)

P.S.: Of course I've tried to disable addons before posting in here. But somehow disabling yt_unblock with its own button doesn't disable it in the same way the addons menu disables it. :)
