You can check for legitimate Firefox updates via the "Help" drop-down menu in Firefox: click on "About FireFox" at the bottom of the "Help" menu, then click on the "Check for Updates" button which appears.
Who is to say those updates have not been expanded to include popup update windows for flash and Java?
It seems like almost every time I venture to boot to Vista and use either IE or Firefox, and even when not in the browsers I have been getting a lot of popup update windows for flash and Java with messages in them about them being security updates and to update ASAP.
There are times I even wonder about MS updates that seem to slow down the computer compared to the speed I had when I first used Windows.
I guess that is just another reason to not use Windows and stay on Puppy.
And that is normally what I do anyway.

Think of it. One would need some secure help online
that one could ask. Internet authorities or University or
Computer industry or all of them going together and paying
for such a service. Despite all the years I've spent on computing
I know too little to protect me in a reliable way. _________________
