FireFox update

On Win 10 / Firefox 91.0 I keep getting a popup saying I need to update FF with options to download or dismiss. When I go to "about FF" I am told I am current. This occurs about once a day no matter which option I choose. I have restarted FF several times for other reasons but the popup still occurs frequently.

Can you attach a screenshot?

If you get a pop-up message asking to update Firefox or scanning for malware then such a message is likely a scam and you should NEVER respond to such an alert to avoid getting infected with malware.

  • only update Firefox via "Help -> About" or by downloading and installing Firefox from the Mozilla and never via a pop-up or link on a web page.

I updated to 91.0.2 a few days ago. Surprise, no more notices that I need to update.
