are 360 security spyware clear and pc tech coming from my firefox download
Setting up a new machine and getting several security and antivirus installations. Trying to determine if some are affiliated with Mozzilla. As I was installing mozzila 360 total security, spyware clear, and pctech hotline are all poping up / installing. Are these coming from options I agreed to when i installed firefox and are they reputable and are they helpful?

No, absolutely not!
Mozilla has nothing to do with any security applications, anti-spyware or any 'hotlines'.
As far as those three being reputable - no, if they want to install in an underhanded manner like that. Overall, it sounds like Malware is already present on that device.
