While using Firefox, I keep getting a full-screen interruptions telling me to upgrade my browser. I can't tell if these are legitimate or whether they are scams. I understand the Firefox updates automatically so why would the requests be necessary.

If you have an outdated version, it can expose your system to vulnerabilities.

If these alerts come from websites, they could be malicious. I'd suggest to use Adblock Plus to block most of these annoying pop-ups.
