Dear Philipp,

Thanks for the advice.

I removed my previous installation of Firefox and followed the instructions "How to download and install Firefox on Mac" you sent me exactly.

When I restarted my computer I got the same message again. I have attached a screenshot of the message.

Any idea what I can do now?

Lisa
