While on another page, I get a very real looking Firefox page that says, I have chosen to take this update, which I haven't. It always has a link that every time it comes up has a different address in it. And they are always really weird addressed that look very fake. I always close it out and don't even hit the cancel in the link. This has been going on for a few weeks. I do not think this is a legitimate update link form Firefox, especially since it overcomes what ever page I am on. Are you aware of this?

Spontaneous apparently bogus "urgent update"

I keep getting a tab popping up unbidden identifying an urgent update from a website that I have not visited: https://fuajamagora.net/7431280609033/701d1159b9eac26c0bdab4… (read more)

I keep getting a tab popping up unbidden identifying an urgent update from a website that I have not visited: https://fuajamagora.net/7431280609033/701d1159b9eac26c0bdab43587e9b609.html. It's obviously bogus.

My question is, does anyone know how to get rid of it?

I have periodically gotten a full screen page with the Firefox logo indicating that I need to download/install an urgent update. Today it appeared on cnn.com while I was reading the page and before I clicked anything. I closed the page with the red "X" without incident and ran a Malwarebytes scan immediately afterward without result. Is this a problem Firefox has been subjected to?

I took a screenshot if you're interested, and tried reporting to your legal/fraud department per your online form but after submitting got Firefox message 413 Request Entity too Large.

I keep getting a pop up that says it's from Firefox. Problem is, it only comes up while I'm viewing one particular site. In the middle of the page is a dialog box asking me I want to save file. Understandably I'm a little afraid to click on it. Is it legit?

It looks like this.
