I got an urgent update notice with the Firefox logo and it looked legit so I clicked on it ad it downloaded a "patch". Is this patch legit or spyware? I need to know ASAP! Thanks!

So you are getting a random name website page claiming to have a so called urgent update for Firefox and a prompt to download a fake firefox-patch.js file?. The random name of the website alone should raise a flag that it was not legit.

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 Firefox updates are done internally in Firefox (with a .mar type of file) whether on Windows, Mac OSX or Linux or by download from mozilla.org like say www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/

Firefox 48.0 has been the current Release since Aug 2nd. https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/48.0/releasenotes/

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 several weeks now with one or two new sites reported almost everyday. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/forums/contributors/712056/ and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/forums/contributors/712075

suspicious download firefox-patch.js

I am getting the same thing over the past couple of days (different URL) from https://kahdacitylinkexpress.org

Most recent URL: https://kahdacitylinkexpress.org/2571196760355/7b393ecf118dc15d4f6e925feea6ab53/13f5cda28c1df11a7536ab141ede954f.html

It is boasting firefox logo and colours, and it automatically attempts to download a file titled: firefox-patch.js The notice it shows is: URGENT FIREFOX PATCH

I am not sure how/why, but it is circumventing my popup blocker and it immediately tries to download the above file. It happens when I am browsing, and the last two time it has occurred was when I was on eBay, or at least that was the last or only site I had open at the time it occurred.
