seeing this thread

click here thought it worth asking if something IS amiss as I am aware many members might be using ff as their browser

I got this one too and AVG healed it. Was it really a virus/trojan?

I have not picked up this virus. I run all the spyware/malware software once a week and also AVG Anti-virus. Nothing picked up for ages.

Same as Allyginger. But I am curious as we must be getting the updates from the same source?

I am not on FF but am curious as something might be 'going on' ;COULD a nasty have attached itself TO the updates? kinda defeates having updates dont it?

is there any way for an FF user to'report' this?

I use Firefox 2 and Thunderbird. No trouble with it either. Been using these for some years now. Never ever had a virus from any update.So I don't know what this is.Same as johndrew I'm curious as well.

No infection here either and my FF is fully updated from the Mozilla site. I would suspect AVG or other security programs reporting a false positive or complete coincidence.
