Hi, it's a scam to infect you with malware! NEVER EVER click on anything like that.

If you are in any doubt about the authenticity of update pop-ups etc., it's 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.

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