I keep getting a screen change popping up on my browser, asking me to install a very important update. I know the patch is a scam, as I've check the internet and see others have experienced the same problem. Is there any way I can stop receiving the firefox-patch.js patch request? It comes up very often when I open chicagotribune.com.

Hi, yes you are right, it's a fake update designed to infect you with malware which we have seen a lot of recently! NEVER EVER click on anything like that! Please see the article - I found a fake Firefox update.

If you are in any doubt about the authenticity of update pop-ups etc., it's always best to ignore them and check for yourself by opening the 3-bar menu > Help (question mark at bottom right) > About Firefox. Alternatively, you can press the Alt key to bring up the main menu bar > Help > About Firefox. More - Update Firefox to the latest release.

A possible workaround that seems to work for some, is to install an ad-blocker, such as -

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin

Or, but this may be less effective - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus

If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you.

Not all Firefox user on Windows get this however once they do you have a greater chance of getting it again. Ad blocking extensions as mentioned have been a good way of stopping these malicious ads.
