I keep getting a full page that states there is a critical update for Firefox.
The address is https://iegohnewfrog...70cd7eb2d4.html

However I have the latest Firefox.
What gives?
Thanks, Jerry

I would not as that is not a legit address. If it is not coming from mozilla, then do not clink the link.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

If it were my computer, I'd run some scans with security programs. You should not be seeing a page pointing to a bogus site.

It wouldn't hurt to run AdWare Cleaner & JRT.  General instructions:

Please download Adware Cleaner and save it to your Desktop.
  • Right-click on AdwCleaner.exe and select Run As Administrator
  • The tool will start to update the database, please wait a bit.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin.  Please be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Disable your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it.  If you are using Windows Vista or Seven, right-mouse click it and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
