Hello,

Mozilla does have an updater, but "updater.exe" is a very generic name, for instance:

If the updater is located in the Mozilla Firefox install directory, then it is most likely safe.

  • Default install directory for 64 bit computers: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\
  • Default install directory for 32 bit computers: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\

the updater.exe file shows up in:

c:\users\my_name\appdata\local\mozilla\updates\308046b0af4a39c\updates\0\updater.exe

Is this the Mozilla Firefox install directory you mentioned in your post, CoryMH?

Hi numbrsguy,

I want to say yes, you can trust that one, but to be on the safe side scan with a another antimalware tool. You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

The updater is setup in a way such that users who don't have administrative access in Windows can update Firefox. For more information on this, please see:
