I keep getting a request to update my firefox program even tho if I go directly to firefox I get a notice that says my program is up to date. Here is a link to the website that keeps coming up: http://alwaysnewsoft.search2updatevideo.org/?trsad=YEcLfPwZm7d8iximhLH_I_BWpDVvzylfgn5SbJcIghc.&cid=P23P4469342215690252513&offerid=2999&v_id=yCvhx2P7Ril8PGG5lM1qgq_S1dRO_5Mg6N9dmq7navU.

I appears to be the real firefox but because I have had a lot of adware lately I am very suspicious.

Is this a legitimate firefox update site?

hello, this is a scam tactic that is trying to trick you into installing malware, so don't download or execute this kind of stuff! only download firefox from its official location at mozilla.org - in addition updates are handled automatically by firefox so you don't have to download anything manually (you can initiate a check for updates in the firefox menu ≡ > help ? > about firefox).

you might also want to run a full scan of your system with the security software already in place and different tools like the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner in order to make sure that there isn't already some sort of malware active on your system that triggers these false alerts.
