Mozilla has released Version 23.0 of the Firefox browser. The most significant changes are that mixed content blocking protection is now enabled by default, and the "Load images automatically", "Enable JavaScript", and "Always show the tab bar" settings have been removed from the Options and set to enabled by default.

One thing that does grab my attention here soon in firefox is the ever developing Shumway, Firefoxes alternative to flash that will eliminate the need for standard flash in firefox browsers.
This is a good thing, and once Microsoft and Apple can come up with their own native flash thing (no not silverlight, thats just a nonsense standard) flash can finally die like it deserves to.
 


That conduit is spam...malware/spyware and should be uninstalled and cleaned from one's system.

I knew that.
Each time I installed FF ( this time for Zorin OS download ), I get that damn Conduit.
It is not in Programs and Features.
I had to run Malwarebyes.
Then CCleaner > tools> remove anything related to Conduit.
Right now I still have this entry stuck in my Program and File (x86). Can't get it out.......

You might try something like Process Explorer from here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
Use it carefully to locate the process "TBVerifier.dll" after locating it you should be able to right click and suspend it, after which you should be able to manage it any way you choose (rename it to TBVerifier.OLD, or even delete it if that is what you are looking to do).
 


Look for any thing Conduit related in the registry, HKEY_CURRENT_USER and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Expand the drop down menu arrow and then do the same for the software entry....find any thing conduit related and delete those strings. Some times you have to manually remove those bastard entries because they stay hidden in there. It would be even worth a go to run all your malware/spyware in safemode.

Can not find TBVerifyer.dll nor anything related to Conduit using Process Explorer.

Thank you for the suggestion.

Regedit works.
Found Conduit under Software > deleted the entry > restarted > Program and Files (x86) > deleted Conduit folder > done.

After the episode, I decided, for a peace of mind only, to run Malwarebyes scan again.
178 hits!!!
All had been removed. Ran another Malwarebytes scan. Clean.

I uninstalled FF .... for the last time !!!
It will be hell freeze over before I use FF.

Why dont you just reset your profile?
just grab your bookmarks and cookies and reset your profile?
Stuff like this happens on IE all the time too so you know, if you are smart enough you can be rid of it.
 


Just curious, but where are you downloading FF from?

Do I have to remove the conduit addons again if I use the Released ?
I HATE conduits.
Mozilla, nor this website, have anything to do with Conduit. They have gone rogue with their spyware/crapware campaign and that's it. We have no links to this junk software, tracking all, and made almost impossible to uninstall. It is browser hijacking software and these external resources only link to official Mozilla pages for Firefox. I can give you one reason why I see this as becoming an increasingly growing problem:

Yesterday, when I opened the firefox, there was a message box to remind me upgrading.

Why don't you get the FF directly from Mozilla website?
