There is a new minor update 78.0.2 released on July 9. Perhaps you did not get the notification till today. https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/78.0.2/releasenotes/

Whenever you get a message / popup that software / files need to be updated;

DO NOT USE ANY OF PROVIDED LINKS

While this may be a legitimate message, it could also be
Malware or a Virus.
Anytime you want or need to check for upgrades,
go to the website of the True Owner of the program in question.
For example, to check out Firefox, go to https://www.mozilla.org


You can report such a site at; http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/report_phish/
Google Report Phishing Page
which is the same when done while on site by going to Help > Report Web Forgery
