If you get a pop-up message asking to update Firefox or plugins then such a message is likely a scam and you should never respond to such an alert to avoid getting infected with malware.

  • Only update Firefox via "Help > About" or by downloading and installing Firefox from the Mozilla server and never via a pop-up or link on a web page.
  • Plugins should only be updated via the plugin itself or by visiting the home page of the plugin.

Nothing to do with Firefox / Mozilla AFAIK and in all probability some sort of scam.

I have no intention of checking what it downloads it may well be malicious.

What exactly were you trying to upgrade ?
