If you cannot close the tab try using the ESC key as that can help.

This was not a message from the Firefox web browser or from the company Mozilla.

With words like "Dear Firefox user congratulations" "we thank you for being a loyal Firefox user" shows it was a scam to get private information from you like name, address, email, credit card details and such details.

Normally the scam for a free something has been for a iPhone X, Samsung S8/S9 phone or a $1000 gift card from some place like Amazon.

Did the page look anything like below image as note the wording like "Dear Firefox user, congratulations!" and "We want to thank you for being a loyal..."

The image was one of a number of variants of the scam for a free iPhone X I have seen in posts in the past months. The page was due to a malvertising Ad on a site.
