Mozilla Firefox warnings ?

Recommended Posts

My browser is Mozilla Firefox.

 

This morning upon opening it I received the following three Emisoft warnings.

 

"C:ProgramFiles(x86)MozillaFirefox\updated\uininstall\helper.exe is attenpting to install invisibly" , then various options, I chose "allow once".

 

then

 

"C:ProgramFiles(x86)MozillaFirefox\updated the program has been changed, then varios options and I chose "allow once".

 

then

 

"C:ProgramFiles(86x)MozillaFirefox\updated the program is attempting to manipulate other processes, I chose "allow once"

 

The last warning was all in red.

 

I have no idea what any of this means, but it naturally has caused me a lot of concern.

I have used Firefox for years with no issues and assumed it to be safe.

 

Was I right to "allow once" ?
If not, what should I do ?

Hello,

 

yes it was right to allow this behaviors.

 

The problem is if you not run the firefox restart after a firefox update a new subfolder C:\ProgramFiles (x86)\MozillaFirefox\updated\ will be created by firefox. Then the new firefox files helper.exe and firefox.exe triggers the behavior alerts because it is a new file path.
