Windows 7: I am having a problem again with a popup in Firefox v52.0

I am having a problem again with a popup in Firefox v52.0

This is in the Dell Inspiron 3541 laptop, OS Win7 Home 32bit. This time there is only 1 popup, see the attached picture. It randomly pops up. I ran a virus check, nothing found. I ran Malware, nothing found, and spybot and again nothing found. This pop up takes over Firefox. It will go away for a while when I use Ctrl > Alt/ Del to shut down Firefox with the "start Task Manager" then start Firefox again. Then it comes again again when I am working on something else in Firefox. It is a pain in the neck. How do I get ride of it?

To be on the safe side you should set .js file association to open with your text editor instead of WSH.

Also suggest:

Try this addon. Click&Clean | Add-on for Firefox

Once installed click the drop down arrow next to the icon in the toolbar and select preferences.

Set like this:

When you exit Firefox you get this:

Choose option to clear cache.

Firefox has been updated. If you open FF, click 'Help>About Firefox' you get this.

Just a note to say that the popup seen is not official (look at the URL in the image)

It's nothing do do with FF being out of date (even if the OP is using an outdated version) - see here:

Look it's nothing to do with a version of Firefox that needs updating. Firefox has it's own update mechanisms and that page is not one of them.
