however, my Mcaffee antivirus software keeps on indicating that it is a virus on the page

Is this your update or is this a phishing attempt?

Thanks, David Talbot

I keep getting a pop up that says it's from Firefox. Problem is, it only comes up while I'm viewing one particular site. In the middle of the page is a dialog box asking me I want to save file. Understandably I'm a little afraid to click on it. Is it legit?

It looks like this.

I have been having this malware come up like others but it recently changed. Before, it just opened in a new tab. Now, it actually loads as a new page on the current tab; even if nothing is clicked and my hands are physically off the keyboard and mouse. Additionally, it automatically tries to download a file but I am able to stop it without it running (as far as I know). Like mentioned before, the link to the page is white when followed. I have only been having this issue on one site, reddit and more specifically reddit.com/r/totalwar.

What happens each time is that sometimes when I click a link to either a forum post, the comments, or an imgur post. After the page loads and a few seconds pass, the 'Urgent Update' page loads and replaces the page that was intended. It then does what I described above. For me, no other sites have this issue but I wanted to contribute to try and help this seemingly growing issue. Are there any solutions or steps that have been identified thus far?

I have downloaded it, but have not yet executed it. Does this have anything to do with my frequent "Firefox is not responding" message?

A scammer is taking over CNN.com's page, pretending to be a Firefox update, and I captured the URL this time.

The URL was: https://eekiewanknews.net/8981613244252/efa132387dde53efa4fde122b6b57d7a.html It used the Firefox logo on a similarly-colored background as you use. A popup… (read more)

The URL was:

https://eekiewanknews.net/8981613244252/efa132387dde53efa4fde122b6b57d7a.html

It used the Firefox logo on a similarly-colored background as you use. A popup also appeared. I stopped the browser, scanned for viruses and found none, and restarted and came here to report. Perhaps this will help you determine who is behind hacking Firefox.

Thank you again for all you do.

Almost every time I am on Facebook and click on Farmville to play that game, the first time I click on to go to my farm, I've been getting the "official-looking" red firefox screen and logo pop up with a gray colored pop up box that says it's an urgent firefox update. I've never clicked on the save button, I alwasy click cancel, close the pop up box, go back to Facebook and click on Farmville again, and everything runs fine, The latest one I encountered says it was a Java script coming from the following link, again it popped up after I logged into Facebook, and clicked on Farmville. Here's the link and file info: Urgent firefox update firefox-patch.js JavaScript File (2.6 KB) from https://podaimt2.net https://podaimt2.net/4761283090238/bea2ae3697608b4f8ce3a682c30d7e46.html

About once a week I'm prompted to accept a download from Firefox normally while I'm reading a news article. Every few days, I launch Firefox, click tools, help and check for updates. I do maintain the latest version. I'm currently on version 47.0.1 on a Windows 7 64 bit Pc.

I'm not sure if an add-on needs updating or if spyware is trying to download. In the past, when I know I have the current version of Firefox installed, I quickly start task manager and end the FireFox task without clicking anything else that could allow spyware to download. I went back to the page (link is below) where I received the download message but it didn't display this time. If this is an add-on update, where can I verify I need it?

Can anyone tell me if this is legitimate? if so, what is downloading?

While on another page, I get a very real looking Firefox page that says, I have chosen to take this update, which I haven't. It always has a link that every time it comes up has a different address in it. And they are always really weird addressed that look very fake. I always close it out and don't even hit the cancel in the link. This has been going on for a few weeks. I do not think this is a legitimate update link form Firefox, especially since it overcomes what ever page I am on. Are you aware of this?
