My browser just downloaded an empty .html file to my downloads folder when I replied to a post. Firefox on debian linux. file name u9_HytcB.html

Odd thing to happen?

It's the sort of naming convention of a temporary cached file. Technically your browser is constantly doing GET operations against http servers and downloading files you just shouldn't see it. I'd put it down to a random browser error.

I've noticed an additional line cropping up at the bottom of some threads recently :-

Probably not going to be malware on a Debian OS. It's possible I suppose but unlikely. I doubt malwarebytes will be of much help if it is.

quite possibly linked to your issue.

It seems to have stopped the annoying sliding adverts too. That's a blessing though.

Just did it again when viewing a thread. I think it's the creep-up ad at the bottom.
