    Getting pop ups in Firefox for an update, something about superstroy.org with some letters in front of the superstroy, odo or oto or similar. Tried a couple searches and it goes to a store in Russia? Sure looks suspicious.

    Download and run the free version of Malware bytes.

    See some comments on Firefox's help section, so they know about it. Latest popup different than yesterday.

    Its trying to load a Java Script. I'd reset Firefox. Open FF, Hit Help > Troubleshoot > Refresh Firefox.

    Also update Java (www.java.com), make sure to uninstall any old versions if the installer does not ask to check/remove old version.

    Then do as suggested and run a malewarebytes scan.

    I did an update of Firefox on my Android and it's now glitchy and unresponsive. You're not the first person I've read with issues either. Might be time to look at using a different browser.

    I have been getting an urgent FF update PU. I don't click on it and close the FF browser down. It shows up every couple times I'm on Team camaro site and a few others. Today I was responding to a post and the computer froze up. It would not let me type anything and would go real slow. I did a restart of computer and it seems ok now.
