Mozilla Firefox Critical Error is neither the first nor the last misleading notification to be introduced to Mozilla Firefox users online. Notifications like this one are created by schemers who are using them for all kinds of reasons. Some of them could promote links to unreliable websites and installers. Others – and most scam alerts researched in our internal lab are of this kind – introduce users to fictitious helpline numbers, via which schemers could communicate with unsuspecting users. A few other scams include “The Tungsten Rounded Font Was Not Found” fake alert, “Apple Security Breach” fake alert, and “Your Apple Device Has A Virus” scam. Unfortunately, new scam notifications are created every day, and old ones are replaced with new ones extremely quickly. If you continue reading, you will learn how to recognize them, and, of course, how to delete Mozilla Firefox Critical Error alert from your browser. Note that it might not be enough just to close the scam page or the browser showcasing it for complete removal.
At the moment, it is unknown if Mozilla Firefox Critical Error is still used to scam users because the webpage (http://0x00381136100.bid) that was used to represent it is no longer working. A different page that has not been discovered yet could be used for that, which is why we should not just assume that the devious Mozilla Firefox Critical Error scam is no longer a threat. According to the message following this error notification, your personal logins and bank information are at risk, and while that might be true, that is not due to the malware that is introduced to you via the scam. In fact, the fictitious notification does not reveal the name of the malware, which is a signal that you are being scammed. Another sign you cannot ignore is the URL of the page representing the fictitious alert. Real security warnings are never shown via random, unfamiliar pages, and you should only trust alerts that are shown by trusted security software that is installed on your PC, as well as your operating system.
“FIREFOX_CRITICAL_ERROR_0xKB1546764_CALL_HELP_DESK: +1 (877) 556-6888 (Toll-Free)” is the main warning that Mozilla Firefox Critical Error introduces its victims to, and, obviously, the goal behind is to convince you to call the number. Do you understand why doing that would be a mistake? Schemers are behind this number, and they do not care about helping you. If you call the number, they could try to extract your operating system’s license key and other kinds of information. They could also try to make you download malware or given them the permission to access your system remotely, which, of course, could be extremely dangerous. Overall, you do not want to interact with the Mozilla Firefox Critical Error scam under any circumstances. In case you already have, you need to consider the security issues that might have come with it. Besides that, you also need to think about malware that could be active on your operating system. Although the fictitious error alert does not represent any real information, malware could be active. In fact, it could be linked to the scam itself.
