The one Firefox is using is the Mozilla one. Did you (or someone else) create those folders back in April?

I doubt it's malware, that would be a weird thing for malware to do

Note that the screenshot shows dates in dd-mm-yyyy format, so this folder was modified September fourth and not in April. I also see an 'ff' folder with the same date and time.

iv already scanned the whole pc with a bunch of programs listed above, and it wont detect anything . WHY ???

i also want to mention that i do not get any popups with porn like the other guy said. i found that folder cause i saw the update.exe in the task manager . if i hadnt see that processes, i wouldn't have found that folder
