Mozilla does not scan the computer for viruses. That will be a fake scan, and the site that you visited is trying to get you to install some form of malware. The fake scan will inform you that it has detected viruses, then it tells you that you need to install some software and will often say you need to pay for it. The scan is not a real scan and the viruses it allegedly detects are not on your computer.

Sites like that depend upon JavaScript. I use the NoScript add-on which by default will disable JavaScript, and allows you to specify what sites you want JavaScript to run on. It takes a while to get NoScript set up so that you can have JavaScript enabled on the sites that you use often. There is a bit of work involved but I prefer the added protection that the add-on gives - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/noscript/

Also make sure you have up-to-date anti-virus and anti-malware software installed. I use the free Microsoft Security Essentials - http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/default.aspx
