AMozilla folders in my AppData/Roaming profiles - legit or malware?

Kuphostiwe

There is a folder called 'Amozilla' containing a folder called 'AFirefox' under Users/_____/AppData/Roaming, in addition to the regular Mozilla folder. The Amozilla files are all from 2018 - no recent use. Are these legitimate? Safe to delete?

The regular Mozilla folder contains two Firefox profile folders: one with recent files, the other all from 2018. Safe to delete the defunct profile folder? (I am the only user of this computer.)

Thanks.

Is there also a aMozila or aFirefox folder in the secondary location in AppData\Local ?

You can remove this folder as it isn't used by Firefox.

Thanks for your replies.

There is an AMozilla folder in AppData\Local too. I hadn't looked there at first. Only saw it in Roaming.

I will remove both, I guess, but was this ever a legitimate folder?

FredMcD, yes I saw some of those forum conversations, but nothing from Mozilla itself addressing the 'AMozilla' phenom specifically.

I haven't noticed any particular performance issues in the last year.
