Screenshot attached. It's a downloader and it's happening on every page I open.

Is this happening for anyone else using Avast?

I'm on laptop running Firefox 47.0.1 and Windows 10.

Same here piknmixer! Not sure why it's happening, I've reported this thread to MNHQ so someone sees it.

Thanks for letting us know about this - we've passed this on to our tech team to take a look

I came here to create a thread to report this as well.

I'm using Avast, on a laptop, windows 10, and it's telling me that it keeps blocking the same file.

Having looked up what the file is, I'm glad it's currently being blocked.

I'm hopeful that Tech has managed to sort this, as it's not happened in the last few minutes.

Scrub my last.

While it's not happening on MN right now for me, it's just happened on another site I just accessed.
