What gives with the "urgent update" screen I got on cnn.com this morning?

I have periodically gotten a full screen page with the Firefox logo indicating that I need to download/install an urgent update. Today it appeared on cnn.com while I was reading the page and before I clicked anything. I closed the page with the red "X" without incident and ran a Malwarebytes scan immediately afterward without result. Is this a problem Firefox has been subjected to?

Hi, thanks for reporting a fake update. It's a scam designed to infect you with malware! 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 is to install an ad-blocker, such as -

Or https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus
