  1. Death to Esurf Nov 17, 2015

    I've run a malware scan, I've reset my browser, but still it goes straight to this Esurf rubbish whenever I want to surf! Today it directed to and shows a page with my browser's logo (Firefox) along with what it says is a survey. They say "we want your feedback on the latest version of Firefox. We are giving away £1,000 supermarket voucher [sic] to the first 500 users who completes [sic] this survey". Yeah right - I'm reporting this to Mozilla!
