Firefox

Hmm, I was on one of the car world cup polls and the tab I was browsing, was redirected to the link below, which I don't think is legitimate.

I wan't sure if this would be caused by the site, or my laptop...

Possibly dodgy link.

It was the nature of being active on a tab, not clicking anything and my browser suddenly being redirected to a site that purported to telling me that my Firefox browser required an update.
My uncertainty about the url is because in my mind, if Firefox were going to ask me to do an update, then the url would contain the word Firefox....

I had another one this evening, which was from the named Https://aareetopgear.org with the heading "Critical Firefox update". It produced a dialogue box asking me if I wanted to save a javascript file named firefox-patch.js.

What should I do to stop this happening?

Thanks, we'll send that to be blocked as well. Is anyone else getting these pop ups?

Here's a link with a few tips to prevent these pop ups: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...firefox-update
