The one Firefox is using is the Mozilla one. Did you (or someone else) create those folders back in April?

I doubt it's malware, that would be a weird thing for malware to do

no I did not create those folders nor did someone else.

it is a malware that uses a fake firefox to access some websites in the background.

it came with some codecs you installed, i suggest you scan your system with malwarebytes in safe mode

Somebody else did he manages the address I just got evicted from and it wasn't trying to do something so he a so k me to look at it and I saw he had been in the jail

I have no idea what you are talking about .....

Does this have anything to do with the OP's question  ?

Note that the screenshot shows dates in dd-mm-yyyy format, so this folder was modified September fourth and not in April. I also see an 'ff' folder with the same date and time.

I'v run malware bytes,FRST, combofix, superantispyware, TDSSKILLER,adwarecleaner It all comes clean I could just delete the folders and that would be the end of it . would it ?

the date has nothing to do with anything. It doesnt matter when it was created.

iv already scanned the whole pc with a bunch of programs listed above, and it wont detect anything . WHY ???

i also want to mention that i do not get any popups with porn like the other guy said. i found that folder cause i saw the update.exe in the task manager . if i hadnt see that processes, i wouldn't have found that folder

delete all files named Amozilla Afirefox.

after that run windows updates, and scan your system with these:

important you have to update these softwares before run the scan.

thats what i did but im sure there's leftovers in the registry too .

 all those programs are useless.. like seriously what are their purpose if they cannot detect that threat , and I've tried at least 10 programs to   and remove it . but none of them detected anything

malwarebytes is designed specially for registry infections.

BUT try these:

after that delete every file with the name Amozilla Afirefox in safe mode .
