My original question was how to prevent McAfee demands to be installed. The reply was "That isn't a Firefox issue but McAfee support to resolve for you. Also check with McAfee site and support about their software issue. Also Firefox Browser doesn't do popups to buy a product or software. " However the title of the popup IS Firefox. Would you suggest that McAfee is the originator of the malware?

Hey there! It's understandable that you're frustrated by the McAfee demands showing up as popups. While the popup might say "Firefox," it's important to note that Firefox doesn't typically show popups to buy products or software. It's possible that the popup might not actually be from Firefox, and McAfee could be behind it. To tackle this, I'd recommend reaching out to McAfee's support. They should be able to help you sort out this issue and provide guidance on preventing these demands. To avoid them, to could just mute your system notifications. Stay safe online!
