Did you click this link?

Probably it's forced by your AV software. Open regedit.exe and check if the following registry keys exist:

  • HKCU\Software\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox\
  • HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox\

Go to your installation folder (where firefox.exe is located) and check, if you have there distribution folder.

PS. You still didn't click the link.

I have found the answer. removed registry entry placed by AVG antivirus using below method:

1. Open the registry editor

2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies

3. Select and delete “Mozilla” parent key present below Microsoft on the left side 3. Restart Firefox browser and visit Settings, you’ll no longer see the message.

I understand that it is Avast/AVG causing this problem. I have Avast free on my laptop. If I remove it, will Windows Defender be sufficient to protect my browser? I also scan with Spybot once a week.
