A scammer is taking over CNN.com's page, pretending to be a Firefox update, and I captured the URL this time.
The URL was:
It used the Firefox logo on a similarly-colored background as you use. A popup also appeared. I stopped the browser, scanned for viruses and found none, and restarted and came here to report. Perhaps this will help you determine who is behind hacking Firefox.
Thank you again for all you do.

It sounds like you are getting a random named website claiming to have a urgent update. This is not from Mozilla or the Firefox web browser. The fake firefox-patch.exe and firefox-patch.js files can install things like trojans, viruses, or unwanted software on Windows based on past reports if the user runs them.
You could try using a adblocker extension like uBlock Origin to block theses fake ads if you keep getting them. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/
Unfortunately this has gone on for several weeks now with one or two new sites reported almost everyday. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/forums/contributors/712056/ and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/forums/contributors/712075
