I keep getting a pop up, when in Fire Fox, that says urgent patch update. The screen looks like the Fire Fox logo but I was concerned. Instead of clicking on this each time I have gone to the Fire Fox web site and tried to update the browser. When I do I get that I am up to date. Does anyone know if this patch is good or a virus? Below is the web site that comes with the pop up.

Malwarebytes.

It's free.

Download and run it.

It looks like a scam. Check your Firefox browser.

I wouldn't go there, the site-link you posted was blocked by Malwarebytes.

Yes it is. I checked on my iMac running OS X El Capitan.

That link is for Windows machine.

I have received the same. If you look at the file address and type you'll notice it has nothing to to do with Mozilla. Do not run/save. And like others have commented, Malwarebytes is good. Recommend.

This is a scam. In Firefox you can click on Help/About and it will tell you if you are up-to-date.

I used Malwarebytes and scan the computer. It did not show that it was a problem.
