I installed eset internet security in my PC , the last time it always alerted me that something is unusual within Firefox data that is saved in my pc document ( user specific \ login \ et.. issues ) . This message I have never seen before. So, can you tell me what are the most possibilities ?

What message?

Install adblockers to help slow down many such messages.

Every now and then, run your anti-virus scan using the Full option.

You should also run a malware scan as well. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

I don't know. It could be one of your add-ons. It could be the web page.
