After updating to 15.0.1 Firefox opened from C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\updated\firefox.exe

Posted

After updating to 15.0.1 this afternoon on a Win 7 64-bit machine, I restarted Firefox. Immediately Comod started showing warnings that firefox.exe was not a recognized program and was asking to access plug-in container, SVC host, and other things. Weird. So I look in Comodo and Explorer and it says the process is running from this path:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\updated\firefox.exe

Except there is no Updated folder. This happens even when clicking the firefox.exe file in the Mozilla Firefox folder.

Is this normal?? It seems not correct.

Nevermind. I restarted the computer and everything seems to be back to normal - firewall and paths are correct now. So.. anyone having this problem - try restarting the machine. Never had to do that after a Firefox update before so didn't think of it.
