Thank you, i've disabled javascript for now, and hope there is a better fix shortly.

In Firefox go to Tools>Options>WebFeatures and remove the ticks from the "allow Websites to Install Software" and "Enable Javascript" boxes and ok out again.

Open Firefox, click on tools(at the top), options, web features. Untick the box "Enable JavaScript".

As per the advisory, you should also untick "Allow web sites to install software".

HTH, dagwoood.
