I have Kaspersky virus protection and it says Firefox has been reported as unsafe to download. Is this true?


I used fiefox before my last crash 6 months ago. When I reinstalled all my other software I tried to load firefox from the web. I go the message from my Kaspersky not to download as it was reported by Microsft as being dangerous. What is the real situation and shoudl I disregard ther warning. I liked the firsfox when I had it before.

That sounds unusual. I am guessing it would have been a false positive, and and any such report will have been corrected by now. However be careful you know what site you are actually using, just in case you are being redirected to some spoof site.

Try for instance http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html

No doubt others will quickly respond if there is any genuine warning still displaying about firefox downloads.
