I've been experiencing weird downloads whenever I startup firefox. My antivirus prevents the download, and says that firefox.exe is the application responsible. I will include an image of the antivirus(Kaspersky) report. Deleting and reinstalling firefox seemed to fix the problem, but it returned after sometime; even when I just used youtube on firefox(I've tried this atleast 3 different times now). I am not sure if this is caused by one of my extensions, or if there is something else I've done to cause this. I'd just like to know if there is a way to fix it?

Did you try with Firefox in Safe Mode? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/diagnose-firefox-issues-using-troubleshoot-mode#w_how-to-start-firefox-in-4troubleshoot-modesf5safe-modesf Sounds like your issue is with Kaspersky and you need to tweak something. Have you tried disabling Kaspersky to see if you have the same issue?

I think this might be malicious, so I am very hesitant to disable my antivirus when it comes to it. I am not complaining that my antivirus is catching it; more that I want to know where it is coming from? Or just why? Like is it something firefox needs? or is it something that latched onto my browser somewhere? And how can I remove it? I tried troubleshoot mode and I get the same download denied notification.

Can you post the URL so others can verify what is going on with the links-if they aren't private or personal links?

If they help I don't mind posting them. I don't know what they are or where they come from. All I know that kaspersky flags them has a high level of threat and blocks the download, and the download only happens when I start firefox. There are 2 links and when the download happens I get 4 reports in total: 2 from each link. Here are the 2 links that kaspersky reports: https://lascivioushelpfulstool.com/74b38547114a2b039739bd06097617cb/invoke.js https://lascivioushelpfulstool.com/91/9c/47/919c470be0f3909ea96c82386a0ce75e.js

I don't think I understand. This happens without me going to any site. If I start up firefox and do nothing, just stay on my home page( which is set to the "Firefox Home (default)" based on my settings), I get the notification from kaspersky.

Then this is a kapersky issue not a firefox issue as you left it default setup. My Defender when I first installed default didn't do this alert.
