Uncommon download alert vs signed application - will EV change anything?

from time to time I'm facing the issue which is reported to me by my clients, that signing the application (for example .exe files) with commercial code signing certificate does not help them to get rid of "Uncommon download" notification when their application is downloaded.
I'm trying (and I hope that someone will help me to answer to this question) to figure out if signing the application with EV code signing certificate should help in this case? Personally often I can't even prove that the problem with specific file exists, because when I download the example file, I'm not notified about uncommon download, but screenshots from my clients are real.
Of course I've read any document I found describing how the Google Safe Browsing mechanism works and I do understand that it is developed to protect the users, but my question about EV certificate is still wondering me.
Microsoft advisor described that EV signing may help for Edge users: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/886010/avoiding-microsoft-edge-isnt-commonly-downloaded-w. What about Firefox?
I'm ready to provide some examples if needed but the question seems global to me.
