Default WARNING: Virus Within Firefox!

Just thought I'd warn you guys that my Nod32 virus scanner picked up a virus that was contained within Firefox itself.

I'm not sure if it's a false posative or not, but I'm not taking any chances... Back to old IE.

NOD32 is a anti-virus program. Highest detection rate and owns all. Thanks to Ownage, I got it for free. You can download the trial version, but to keep it forever, you need the paid version.
