comment Convert Text File Encoding
After testing more throughly, this method also failed to solve the problem on some real test-cases. Thus, I'm removing the solution mark.

comment Can't Access Apache on VirtualBox VM (using NAT + Host-only)
@ChristopherMarkieta Yes, turning off iptables can have security consequences and it is only recommended for controlled test environments. For a production system the correct way is to configure iptables to allow the desired traffic to pass in and out.

comment How to get rid of the DNS Unlocker adware?
@mahdiar Hi Mahdiar. Unfortunately I have nothing more to add here. I tried this on another infected Firefox on Linux Mint and it solved the problem. Make sure you delete the whole .mozilla folder. And make sure you don't bring anything smelly from the infected Firefox back.

@Zacharee1 I see them in several sites, but not all. Also I changed to another router to connect to the Internet and nothing changed; the ads still come up.

comment How to get rid of the DNS Unlocker adware?
@Zacharee1 I don't have Google Chrome installed, only Chromium, which I haven't opened lately and I haven't checked its plugins. But in Firefox I checked the plugins list and I didn't notice anything suspicous. Yes, by searching I also only found Windows related topics.

@Mateo I checked the network settings and I'm on 'No Proxy'. I also checked the /etc/hosts file and all seemed normal.

@Zacharee1 Nothing unfamilar there either. The last installations were on Monday. But I'm seeing these, since this morning.

I wrote a useful script based on the working command which I have explained in another answer here. I hope it will help other Persian Linux-users as it help me a lot.
