Insecure Update: Error in Mozilla Firefox

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello. I am seeking for help regarding the error that I am receiving in Firefox 8.0.

It says, “Something is trying to trick Firefox into accepting an insecure update.

Please contact your network provider and seek help."

The error seems unusual for me. What does this error means?

I have received some common Firefox error but this one doesn’t seem to be very familiar to me.

I need help so please send me some solutions for this.

Thank you in advance.

Insecure Update: Error in Mozilla Firefox


Apparently it should be an auto-updated problem of Firefox. It should be update manually from Firefox version 8.0 by downloading the latest version from Mozilla.

However, all latest versions should starts checking all add-ons upon start and drives to the new update page each time starting Firefox. If you went to reduced your Firefox browser security problem and safely upgrade to use the options from within the Firefox Menus.

In Firefox version 8.0 there required is still the option to check for updates from

  • Firefox Button > Help > About Firefox (Check for Updates)
