How do we get these guys to fix this?

Asked by Snooper on 2017-12-27

You are probably getting tired of these questions given the long history: But this time on a Brand new 'Clean Install' of ubuntu 16.04 LTS on a Brand New Fujitsu SATA MBR Hard Drive in November 2017. I think that I have finally pinpointed the cause of the problem. After previously having several IDE Hard Drives destroyed and having to continually replace them: This time I Installed / (Root) to a 40 GB partition, and /Home to the remainder of the Hard Drive to help better Isolate what it is that keeps seeming to go wrong.. It IS Facebook's 'Malware' Notifications System! It freezes up AND DISABLES all functions in both the Browser and any accesing of Operating System Applications when it 'Takes Control of the System'. Then misdirects the user, either to the top of the Facebook Newsfeed Page or to some other Facebook page.. When it does this, it also leaves behind a great number of 'Orphaned Inodes. Even after a clean shut down of the browser., which requires rebooting the Computer in Ubuntu 'Recovery Mode' to clear. Sometimes theses 'Orphaned Inodes' left behind by this 'Malware' process, are rendered in such a way that even FSCK will not clear or fix them. IT IS by This 'Process' is how Several of my previous Hard Drives had been DESTROYED!! --My definition: If it (more than temporarily) Disables or destroys Functioning of Browser or Operating System. IT IS MALWARE!!

So haw do we get Facebook to fix their 'Malware' Notifications System??

Have you got the latest BIOS?
Have you tested your RAM using Memtest86 from GRUB?

As stated before, this doesn't happen and the OS isn't breaking your drives. I suspect it's a hardware issue.

Have been studying your problem for some time (past questions). I think the only way to be sure if it is OS problem, or hardware problem, is to install (dual boot) another Linux. One that is not related to Ubuntu or Debian. If the same problem exists, then it will be hardware. If problem goes away, then it will be OS problem.

Can you help with this problem?
