Possible scam or virus

I just turned my laptop on, opened by Firefox browser, and logged onto the Forum. Immediately got a red screen with a box stating "Mozilla Firefox Critical Error. Authentication Required". Then a box for ID and Password. Also a number to call to correct this. 1-866-809-9055.

I'm sure this is a scam but just wanted to see if anyone else has gotten this message. I'm currently on Google Chrome to send this. Intend to run a Malware and an anti virus program now.

It is a scam. Do not call but run MalWareBytes and any other virus software you use.

Looks like Norton came through for us again! I use Firefox and didn't get it!

Yup, it's a scam. I love it when I get a supposed Firefox alert when I'm running Chrome. HAHAHAHA!

Bring up task manager, if any browser is running and shut it down there. download crapcleaner(free) run it, it will delete some items you will need to re-enter, passwords and such. Most of this garbage is stored in browser recent history and CC will delete it. Seems like some of the most trusted sites can get this Scam. They don't do harm just make the browser inop till you clear it.
