Avast warned me about this possibly being malware. The site did not have Mozilla logos or mention.

Hello PaulBiwer,

The URL itself looks suspicious, I would be careful with adresses which has the same structure and gives you such a message in general.

When entering this URL, you will be re-directed to advertises. So, it's not legitimate url.

Browse safely, I would suggest installing NoScript and Adblock plus ad-ons for the Firefox browser.

If you get a pop-up message asking to update Firefox or plugins or scanning for malware then such a message is likely a scam and you should never respond to such an alert to avoid getting infected with malware.

  • Only update Firefox via "Help > About" or by downloading and installing Firefox from the Mozilla server and never via a pop-up or link on a web page.
  • Plugins should only be updated via the plugin itself or by visiting the home page of the plugin.
