This does not come as a update from Mozilla nor does it come with Firefox browser whether by install or a update.

This may have been a update by one of the Extensions you already have installed or it could have been installed by a outside program that was installed or updated then.

Look in Addons->Extensions ? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/disable-or-remove-add-ons#w_how-to-remove-extensions-and-themes

I get a popup saying my software is out of date and needs to be updated. Has the Firefox logo on the information and says Firefox recommends updating- but it is not Firefox that it downloads - it is all other kinds of junk and even if i mark decline or skip it loads it anyway and then I have to go to programs and delete it - I have now have three items in programs that I cannot delete
