Lightspark keeps appearing say I must download. What is it is it safe? do I need it?

Posted

Lightspark keeps trying to male me download for better video quality. Is this part of Mozilla? Do I really need it? Is it safe? How do I get it to stop appearing if I do not need it? It appears frequently and is annoying. I've had issues with viruses in the past and am very wary of this type of thing. Please set my mind at ease and answer my questions. I'm worried if I don't act soon it will try and take over my computer.Please. Thank you. Lisa Monis.
