I keep getting fake push notifications from McAfee. I use Zone Alarm extreme security which shows no viruses. They cannot help. McAfee advised to go through Firefox privacy settings as below

Click the menu button Fx89menuButton and select Settings. Click Privacy & Security from the left pane. Scroll to the Permissions section. Click the Settings... button to the right of Notifications. Select Allow or Block from the Status drop-down for any of the websites. Click the Save Changes button. Have done this but still getting fakes. Can anyone help please Harry

Your Windows 10 already has a A/V and FireWall. ZA is making you pay money for nothing your free Windows Firewall does the same thing. Also Defender is a Free A/V for your Windows. You get fake notifications for black sites or malware infested sites. FireFox browser doesn't send such notifications as it only has Browser update notifications by default install. You need to go online and search how to remove malware notifications from McAfee.
