Yeah, well, must've been something I downloaded through Firefox then... It was on an older version anyway... New one (1.5.0.1) has no viruses...

Weird...

I just did a scan of new updates since I haven't for a while actually, and unless it does it automatically, I only have a theme update...

it's not a virus in mozilla, it's probably some kind of java worm of something like that, which uses the java application in the browser to enter the computer.
Like u have a virus which is in C:\windows\system32, it doesn't mean that ur windows came with a virus, some virus just got into ur computer and went to that folder.
Or something else, but I highly doubt that the virus came with firefox.
