I have persistent spam-ware type download that wont go away. I have deleted it but every time I restart Firefox it comes back and pops up saying "This File may harm your Computer" but i can't complete the download or remove it permanently. i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox several times and it has not worked how can i get rid of this? Thank you OSX Firefox V87.0 64-bit

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 free to use malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
