How do I stop face book authentication popup?
I constantly get one of 2 pop ups on many web pages. They ask me to log into Facebook. I don't have a Facebook account. I never use this application.
This happens very often.
OS: XP service pack 3
I can supply screen shots. Here is a pretty exact manual copy:
? Enter username and password for http://www.facebook.com
User Name: _____________________
Password: _____________________ ____ ________ | OK | | Cancel | |
These pop ups occur very often. The following programs detect no problems:
Malwarebytes AVG Kapersky anti virus
There are no entries with the word "facebook" in my registry. There are no files with an name like facebook*.* on the disk drive.

Try to clear the cookies.
You can do that manually if you want to be sure to keep specific cookies.
"Clear the Cache":
- Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"
"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:
- Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"
Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
