I have been getting different threat warnings when I log into MLP lately.
They are all bogus, but annoying. Everything from mis-directions to "Windows system files are damaged... follow this link to resolve", blah blah.

Anyone else having this problem?

Running: Win 10
Firefox , all current updates installed.

Yeah thanks , I know it's a scam, but I spend a lot (too much) time online, and this is the only place it happens.

I use uBlock origin - works quite well. Ghostery is another good one.



Easy to add, follow the yellow highlighter.

Start at the upper right corner of Firefox:

Firefox here, Win 10, not running ublock origin, just Adblock... I don't get them.
Every now and then my wife will get a pop-under that I won't find until I close the browser... and I make it a habit of closing the browser when I get home and she's been on all day.
