Twice now while navigating to certain websites, I have been redirected to this site (apelorissedwen.download) that says I have to click on something to fix my FireFox browser. It's obviously a virus just from looking at it, but after researching this, I found out that this is a hidden redirect adware that I can't uninstall by regular uninstall methods. It's hidden on my FF browser somewhere. What I've read is that this can become very malicious. I am very limited in computer technology, so I'm asking if any of you have any ideas on how to get rid of something like this? When I looked this up, there are a lot of "How to remove apelorissedwen.download from your computer" sites, but none of their instructions work for me. It's not in Extensions, add-ons, plug-ins, Privacy, Apps...can't see it anywhere.

You can try installing Malwarebytes. The free version is pretty good at removing malware.

If you don't have antivirus software you should get some.

Thank you, Rose. That worked! I turned off my computer, turned it back on, downloaded Malwarebytes and it got rid of the virus. Thanks for the tip!

I’m glad it was an easy fix.
