While listening to pandora in the background, it stop. I open up firefox to see a convincing looking web page that said I needed to update firefox. I clicked the download button and downloaded "firefox-patch". I panicked when I realized this was bogus. I have moved the downloaded file to my recycle bin but realize the harm is done. What do I need to do to fix this. I am still running windows XP on this machine and would like to continue. Please help me. Thanks!

Started a couple of days ago. Tried uninstalling Firefox and downloading and installing a new copy. Didn't help. Every time I click the back button the whole history list drops down. I have to click someplace to close it. Super annoying. Did not start immediately after adding a new add on or anything.

I have students submitting files to me that must be downloaded for commenting and then returned to them. These files are often in different formats (doc, docx, txt, etc.) but are often named identically (e.g., Writing Assignment.docx) even if I tell students to put their name on them. I need to be able to download these files in a way that firefox will prompt me to change the name "Writing Assignment.docx" to "Student name - Writing Assignment.docx" each time I download one of their submissions. Right now I only have the option to open the file or to save it to a specific location. I do not have the option to download it as a newly-named file. I am currently running the most recent version of firefox (49.0) and Windows 10 x64.

Thank you
