Firefox Can Stop Some Malware
With built-in anti-phishing and anti-malware tools, Firefox can help protect your system from online attacks. However, some threats might still get through these defenses and infect your computer. Firefox can warn you of threats from any dangerous websites or malware downloads. In time, Firefox may improve its security measure to combat the ever-growing number of malware threats from online. However, it may still be best to add another system protection program to improve your PC’s defenses.

Once the malware infects your system, some signs will appear and are often easy to spot. These include:
- Firefox keeps opening many tabs or windows
- Ad popups start to display regularly
- Your searches redirect to strange sites
- Unwanted toolbars have been installed
- Firefox cannot load certain websites
- Firefox often crashes
If your system shows any of these symptoms, it could have a malware infection. Some of these can be missing from your system and it can still be infected. One way to prevent this is to never download Firefox from any online source other than the official Mozilla site.
Firefox is a popular browser for PC users and having a firewall or antivirus program that works alongside it is very helpful. NETGATE Internet Security is built to work with Firefox, but if you have any issues with it you can contact their technical support at any time.
