Removing V9 Portal Site From Firefox


thumbscrew

Likes # 0

Recently when I click on certain sites, instead of loading, some crap named V9 Portal rears its ugly head instead of what I was expecting. I've no idea from whence it came (Crawled out from under a stone?), can anyone tell me how to remove this unwanted garbage?

Hi, I managed to get rid of mine by tracing it in the task manager and deleting it from there. I found that out in the Firefox forums where quite a few have also had this annoying bug.

Though actually, I've only ever used the TM for removing stuck programs!

A few things to try:

  1. Download & install Ccleaner. Only use the cleaner section of the program. The defaults should be fine, but untick the recycle bin to be cleared. Run and it will clear out temporary internet files, internet cache etc.

  2. Still a problem? You could try removing your user data profile http://kb.mozillazine.org/Uninstall_Firefox scroll down to that section.

  3. If that doesn't work completely remove Firefox and do a clean install - info on that same link.

  4. There's a page here with a few other things people have tried Mozilla forums http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/936349
