Malwarebytes quarantined some viruses but could not delete from their site and asked me to try with their instructions: I could not do it so I uninstalled Firefox. When I tried to reinstall Malwarebytes Blocked the install. When I try to install a pop up states we see you had fire fox before we will reload for you. No other options. It fails

First, let's make sure Firefox is gone. If there is a problem, reboot the Computer in Safe Mode.

Using your file browser, open the Programs Folder on your computer.

Windows: C:\Program Files C:\Program Files (x86) Note: Check Both Folders

Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac

Linux: Check your user manual. If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it. See Install Firefox on Linux; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-linux

If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder Firefox in your home directory. http://www.mozilla.org/firefox#desktop

After, do the same with Malwarebytes. After, try downloading a fresh copy, then run it.
