Fake Urgent Firefox Update Warning
There is a fake Firefox update going around that suddenly changes your Firefox browser window to display a warning that there is an "Urgent Firefox Update" and provides a popup for you to install this update. DON'T CLICK ON THIS, CLICK ON CANCEL INSTEAD and then the back arrow of the browser.
To find out more read the article I found a fake Firefox update on Mozilla Support.
Firefox has an automated background update mechanism which will never prompt you to manually download and execute a file. In addition you can always trigger a search for updates within Firefox yourself - to learn how, see Update Firefox to the latest version.
