why do I keep having Index of file:///C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/ pop up?

Posted

Every time I click on a website, this screen (Index of file:///C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/) pops up. I close it and it pops up again, sometimes 3 or 4 times. I'm sick of it. I have Avira and Malwarebytes and they can't fix it. Is it something peculiar to Firefox. I never had the problem when I had the earlier version of Firefox. Hopefully, you can shed some light on this.

Thank You,

Dave Bishop
