This morning 12/12/16 at about 8:05 am EST I was scrolling down yahoo news site, and my webpage suddenly shifted to https://teiniwahmo.org/1571166607196/858c1b6f94e1265fb4c67432497b2ee8/6dcda7c1f90fed7fc265a69ec97505b9.html and I got a pop-up message announcing "Urgent Firefox Update" prompting a download for firefox-patch js which was described as a 6.4 KB JavaScript File. I took a screenshot if you're interested, and tried reporting to your legal/fraud department per your online form but after submitting got Firefox message 413 Request Entity too Large.

Hi, yes it's a fake update designed to infect you with malware which we have seen quite a lot of in recent months! NEVER EVER click on anything like that! Please see the article - I found a fake Firefox update.

If you are in any doubt about the authenticity of update pop-ups etc., it's always best to ignore them and check for genuine updates yourself, by opening the 3-bar menu > Help (question mark at bottom right) > About Firefox. Alternatively, you can press the Alt key to bring up the main menu bar > Help > About Firefox. More - Update Firefox to the latest release.

If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you.
