Hi farmgirl59, an update is available, Firefox 67.0. When issuing updates, Mozilla acknowledges security vulnerabilities that existed in the old version. Most likely, that is what Kaspersky is telling you about.

When Firefox checks for updates, Mozilla doesn't notify all installations at once until after an initial shake-out period to allow time to fix bugs. So that could explain why your Firefox hasn't yet updated. If you are in a hurry, try the method in the following article:

Update Firefox to the latest release

Otherwise, it's likely to get pulled down later this week.
