Wow!

So you figure dumping a huge over sized image, with absolutely no info or details about your system, browser ,DE, etc. is the solution ?, or will get one ?

inxi -F

This website is a virus. The installer is a malware.

I know "mywot" is not all ways reliable, but often it is, when I see reports like this one, I don't downlaod anything from it. And certainly would not install anything from it. Also the legality issue, the music you download probably has copy rights, and it is pirated.
You should remove the plugin, and see if that makes a difference.

I recognized the panel and notification pop-up :)
I see you figured it out, good. But, as a Sid user, you should know installing random stuff from suspicious sites is dangerous.

^ seruiously? that's your solution? you probably only broke your operating system's notification mechanism.
and no, xul-ext-mozvoikko definitely did NOT send you spanish notifications.
Code: Select all
apt search xul-ext-mozvoikko
Sorting... Done
Full Text Search... Done
xul-ext-mozvoikko/stable 2.2-0.1 all

i think you answered your own question right there in your op.
crapware must go.
if you cannot figure how to uninstall firefox addons, you need to nuke the whole ~/.mozilla folder.

Do not break your Debian by installing random stuffs from the bizarre corners of the Internet. Stick as closely as you can to the Debian repos. You will have much better success in the long run. Good luck.
Currently running Debian 9 GNOME on a Dell OptiPlex 3010, Dell Inspiron 1545, and a Dell Inspiron 531.
