This is not from Mozilla or the Firefox web browser. The fake firefox-patch.exe and firefox-patch.js files can install things like trojans, viruses, unwanted software or to download additional stuff onto Windows based on past reports if the user runs them. The random name of the websites alone should raise a flag that it was not legit.

The Firefox updates have not changed as they are done internally in Firefox (with a .mar type of file) whether on Windows, Mac OSX or Linux (since Firefox 1.5 almost eleven years ago) or by download from mozilla.org like say www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/

You could try using a adblocker extension like uBlock Origin to block theses fake ads if you keep getting them. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/

Unfortunately this has gone on for a while now with one or two new sites reported every so often though not as much in last couple weeks. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/forums/contributors/712056/

Even if you were to download this firefox-patch.js file it is not a risk unless you were to try and run it.

. Whenever you get a message / popup that software / files need to be updated;

DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PROVIDED LINKS

While this may be a legitimate message, it could also be Malware or a Virus. Any time you want or need to check for upgrades, go to the website of the True Owner of the program in question. For example, to check out Firefox, go to https://www.mozilla.org {web link}

You can report such a site at; Google Report Phishing Page {web link} which is the same when done while on site by going to Help > Report Web Forgery

Help us safeguard Mozilla’s trademarks by reporting misuse {web link}

If you've used Firefox for a while, you know it doesn't change the page you're viewing to a bright orange page popping up a download. That's a phishing scam going around to trick users into installing malware. Kudos to Norton for blocking it.

This is not from Mozilla or the Firefox web browser. The fake firefox-patch.exe and firefox-patch.js files can install things like trojans, viruses, unwanted software or to download additional stuff onto Windows based on past reports if the user runs them. The random name of the websites alone should raise a flag that it was not legit.

The Firefox updates have not changed as they are done internally in Firefox (with a .mar type of file) whether on Windows, Mac OSX or Linux (since Firefox 1.5 almost eleven years ago) or by download from mozilla.org like say www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/

You could try using a adblocker extension like uBlock Origin to block theses fake ads if you keep getting them. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/

Unfortunately this has gone on for a while now with one or two new sites reported every so often though not as much in last couple weeks. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/forums/contributors/712056/

Even if you were to download this firefox-patch.js file it is not a risk unless you were to try and run it.
