I installed the update to Firefox beta 33 (u8) and a warning from my WebRoot antivirus software popped up:
MALWARE GROUP: Pua.Speedbrowser
LOCATION: C:\program files (x86)\ Mozilla Firefox\ d3dcompiler_46.dll

Likely a false positive, especially if if you updated your definitions recently.
No official install or update for Windows, Mac OSX or Linux from mozilla.org have yet to be proven to have any form of malware, virus, trojan, toolbars, applications bundled in or such.
A way to help prove that is if it was ever true it would be a very hot topic here, on mozillazine forums, tech forums and tech sites.
What locale are you using? as I uploaded en-US of both stub and full setup for Windows to virustotal. Was the first to analyze them.

Fred, the OP is testing the Beta builds (currently at 33.0b8) and not using the Release which is 32.0.3
