Hello. FF was just installing latest update and came up with, Hotfix 20160826.01 is not compatible with v 48.0.2 and has been disabled. Is this a legitimate Hotfix and would it have been installed without users knowledge? Thank you

hi gmack2, yes this was a genuine hotfix addon pushed by mozilla to ensure only users without websense security products on their device can update to firefox 48 at this point. http://www.ghacks.net/2016/08/31/mozilla-to-enable-updates-to-firefox-48-again/ https://wiki.mozilla.org/Add-ons/Hotfix
