I keep getting a a screen popping up saying that there is a urgent update that needs to be downloaded it is from eijugonsemi.net. it looks official enough but the web address does not seem to make sense.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

hello, this is a scam tactic that is trying to trick you into installing malware, so don't download or execute this kind of stuff! only download firefox from its official location at mozilla.org - in addition updates are handled automatically by firefox so you don't have to download anything (you can initiate a check for updates in the firefox menu ≡ > help ? > about firefox).

in case this is caused by rogue advertisements on legitimate websites, you could install an adblocking extension in firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/

you might also want to run a full scan of your system with the security software already in place and different tools like the free version of malwarebytes, adwcleaner & kaspersky security scan in order to make sure that there isn't already some sort of malware active on your system that triggers these false alerts.
