FF internal files protection (from malware or cryptomining exploit or whatever else
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:64.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/64.0 Steps to reproduce: Normal browsing... (or plz check my posts at https://support.mozilla.org/el/questions/1241324?fpa=1). Actual results: As you can see in my posts at the Mozilla Support thread: 1)Extremely high CPU usage, FF/PC hangs and TDR kernel resets along with 2)Bunch (...tons!) of raw data inside prefs*.js,webappsstore.sqlite,places.sqlite etc. 3)Thousands-WOW of pending FF crash reports/over 2300 (currently submitting) and 4)HUGE mess in my life (just like loss of my job/occupation, mental instability and many more). *)Furthermore, I want to mention that this damn thing (issue) merely damaged my CGI board sub-system, now causing real trouble whenever I want to run a demanding 3D graphics application. Expected results: ...or maybe, what YOU (developers) should do: Please, somehow elevate security permissions to FF internal file system (profile files plus Program Files) so as not to be manipulated easily that way by add-ons, extensions, web pages or whatever else... Or at least, warn the [user] that "Hey, this <file> has ...extra-terrestrial size and it is modified! Should I allow it?" -->Just like Opera browser which blocks scripts that compromise your security when visiting a website with cryptomining or malware scripts (sorry for mentioning that). Thank you (and please kindly forgive me for my tension),
