Hello, today something very strange happened. I was reading something on a website I opened in Google Chrome and minimized Chrome. After 2 minutes I came back to my laptop and a .pdf file from my desktop opened in Chrome without me clicking anything. Similar things had happened before, for example a website opens in Chrome while I’m browsing another website, without me clicking anything.
I have the following specs:
This may come from a website opened in one of the tabs. Some websites have a predatory ad behavior, “stealthily” changing their tab or opening new ones in the background.
It can also come from a predatory extension. You should check those.
This is an isolated problem. Other users were not affected. I was at the end of the page I had been reading, then I left the laptop for 2 minutes. When I came back, I maximized Google Chrome(which I had minimized before leaving the laptop), and then the .pdf opened in a new tab randomly.
Something strange happened today. A search bar appeared on the top of my desktop full of questions marks in a field. It was like this ???. Could it be something I pressed? After that I unlocked the screen by entering my password, the screen moved down and google chrome closed by itself.
I liked maycne.sonahoz and TriMoon’s comments 1 hour ago and now I opened the thread and the likes were gone. If someone has access to my WiFi network, can they gain access to Manjaro, assuming I have a strong password set?
