firefox issue any ideas

I recently have been getting this message when i fire up FF i have been able to make it disapear by running a spyware scan and junk file scan and fix i've narrowed it down to being a junkfile (i think) but i dont know why it does it in the first place, it came back today after being gone for a few days

Sounds like an addon causing the issue. Try disabling all of them.

Update after running firefox as administrator it ran without google chrome message however after reboot it returned .i have firefox pinned to my taskbar
The fix is to UNPIN from taskbar then run as administrator then re pin .
it also loads very quickly if you scan and fix junk files
