Trojan Detection

I've realised that once in a while my anti-virus (BullGuard) detects Trojan and I didn't think much of it because I thought my anti-virus would just get rid of it but just about 10 minutes ago (BullGuard detected it at 20:53) and when I open it and realise it's detected a Trojan about 5-6 times and it's automatically put it to quarantine which I have now deleted and forgot to screenshot beforehand, but it seems Trojan is attached to firefox somehow? I got Firefox about 2-3 weeks ago-ish so I am not sure why this is happening and I am concerned, is there anything I can do? I am currently running two full scans with BullGuard and Malwarebytes. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

You may have ad/mal-ware. 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.
