every time I open firefox on my wife's account in win7 there are two sites that have been added to the allowed sites to download add-ons to firefox. This does not happen on my account in firefox. We are running version 54.0.1 32 bit. These two sites are mozilla sites but I don't want them to automatically allow the download of add-ons.

My wife keeps getting this firefox-patch.js scam page and I can't figure out to stop it. I never get it on my win7 account. This is probably not the same prob;em.
