    I just looked up the price of the iPhone SE on the Apple Australia website using Firefox 45.0.1. It came up with a Flash warning (I have a Flash blocker) and some text in Russian. Did not happen with Safari.

    This link might be compromised!

    Your computer might be compromised because I've no issue loading that page with my MacBook and iPhone.

    I also found the site to be ok. I think its something on your end and not Apple's

    I used FF 45.0.1 and, like everyone else, found no problem.

    If the site were compromised, both your browsers would show it, not just one. Apparently your FF browser has been compromised. I suggest running something like malwarebytes on your system as soon as possible.

    Malwarebytes reports no infections. Here is the warning banner:

    I tried disabling the Flash Control add-in for FF and enabled Flashblock and the same warning banner came up. I will try reinstalling Firefox with these tips:

    That's a legit Yandex.Market (market.Yandex.ru) info-banner that comes with a Yandex search extension installed in your browser. That's a Russian price-comparing website run by our biggest search engine. Why would it be on your computer in Aus.. Installed any torrenting software recently? That usually comea bundled with plugins for various websites

    Thanks for this and Jetsam's advice. Hopefully a refresh will fix it! Seems a bit bizarre that it only occurs when i load the Apple Phone SE page.
